  1. Genuinely thrilled for this release. What a beautiful cover as well. I'll be making this the 2nd CD of Goa I have purchased.
  2. Every time I see a comment on this thread I think that it could be THE moment.
  3. So true Edit: And somehow despite how good Alienated Hallucinations might be, it still isn't the best on the album. @GS Concept isn't wrong about Nagual.
  4. So whats our deadline this year? And is this thread going to be 'the' thread?
  5. Even the mention of the word 'experiments' shoots the melody right back into my consciousness.
  6. This is just about all I could ever ask for in 2019. More than excited for these releases.
  7. Gubbology really hit a home run with this genre mash. He and Sab Kuch are the only forest I listen to. Actually Javi is in there too. haha that's my three artists right here. https://trollnroll.bandcamp.com/album/gubbology-anachronism
  8. If Jon Coco likes it then you know Tsotsi will too. Only had time for track 1 so far. Incredibly excited for the rest of the album.
  9. Are you sure it doesn't include second step to the stars?
  10. Artist: Miranda Title: Cosmic Treasure Vol.1 Best of 1995-2000 Remastered Label: Spiral Trax I mean, all I have to say to this is 'wow, fuck yes this is great, never leave my ears you beautiful sounds'. I have some of Miranda's stuff. I've always thought it was awesome. But! I had no idea it could sound like this. This perfectly remastered selection of her greats is to me like listening to them all again for the first time. I mean, just take the intro, ya'll know a good intro is sick, and this one is for sure. Don't even get me started on Gnocchi's wild ass bass line and wild zaps of energy. 'Their isn't a bad song here' is a statement that was true before the remaster. So it's hard to know what to say about it now. 'There are only 10/10 tracks presented here?' That'll do. Listen to the vibrancy of Step To The Stars for example. Listen to that punch. My goodness gracious. Wiiild Miranda likes Mars, we can take a hint. But if the planet of Mars was anything like Miranda's Planet of Mars track I'd be there in a heartbeat. Surely any Miranda fan would understand why I would think that Phenomena should be in their top 3 favourite tracks. Well this is better than you remember. Somewhere Out There, Awesome Mars Needs Woman, Eclectic with an ending like you have only kinda heard before. But not like this. Andalgalornis, Deep and electric. Magnetic Levitation, A favourite on top of a bunch of favourites. I mean what more could you want than deep rumbles, dark atmospheres, psychotic melodies and absolute layered distinction. https://spiraltrax.bandcamp.com/album/miranda-cosmic-treasure-vol-1-best-of-1995-2000-remastered-spitcd053-spiral-trax
  11. You got me onto the Reactivate series. I'm through vol 1, 2 & 3. Had no idea I could like techno this much.
  12. Imma go ahead and call it my favourite trance album. I haven't stopped listening to it and have found it hard to enjoy anything else recently. I'd love someone to cover it. I reckon Proxeeus would do it justice and Morphic Res likes a good cover and would probably smash it out the ball park.

    Slipp - Circuits

    Well that covers not so bad is it. Logman & Stumps Stump, I mean Spazmo I mean Slipp (The artist previously known as Spazmo) has released his first solo project album. Back to the cover and you get the feeling some other Spazmo made a fuss and 'Slipp' just said fuck I know how to use Paint. It'll do my friend. Artist: Slipp Title: Circuits Label: The Next Levelists Date: Jan 16, 2019 Back to the album, we find a mix of Australian bush tech with cool rhythms, psychedelic builds and dugga dugga kickz. Slipp can build a track up and bring it back down again over and over. Take Overload is an example of intensity rising and falling as effortlessly as a koala eating eucalyptus leaves. The track ebbs and flows it's way right through the night offering some pretty cool moments. The circuitry is obvious in Euodia as all the layers work together to create a relaxing swayer of a dance track that. Strange gives some serious tech house atmospheres right from the get go. Stick around for a minute or two and you'll find the track veer off into a new direction with cool as sounds. Hard Work tells nothing but the the truth. It's what you gotta do gang, put in the hours. Get it. The final melody sounds a little Jon Bovi/Rick & Morty. One of my favourite tracks. The party was in no need of reignition. No one asked for that. But Slipp don't give a hoot as he drops Bouncin' right on your badonky donk. The calm atmospheric high's that are becoming a theme are here again as are the lazors and zaps. Dusk takes us into the dark rooms of the underground club. The metallic intro turns into a synthesised bomper of a tune that at the very least makes you swing your head around a bunch. In relation to other tracks on this album Paranoid come across with wickedly dark atmospheres. The vocals are well timed and add a little extra spice when they pop up. The main lead carries through for the entire track. If you want some sorta soft, sorta psychedelic and very groovy tech then I can't recommend this enough. Aussie's do tech well and almost always get the low nice and thick while leaving plenty of space for the mids and highs to shine. https://nextlevelist.bandcamp.com/album/circuit
  14. A solid collection of Merkaba music Record treats https://merkabamusic1.bandcamp.com/album/100th-compilation
  15. Caustic 3 is the app. Good luck. I had the same Convo with The Maniac last year and couldn't figure the basics out. Super impressive that he manages to produce such good quality tracks.
  16. Artist: Blue Hue Title: The Mandala Effect Label: Plateau 5 Records Date: January 1, 2019 Tracklist:- 1. Hitting Bowls 2. Positivictricity 3. Cosmic Interference 4. Mind Modem 5. Methamoprh 6. Mandala Effect 7. Dropping Society Ah summer time, where the sun flows through cities like gold, when cool nights are spent dancing under the ruby leaves while drinking iced tea made by the deities and spinning in our summer trappings. Condensation of diamonds forming on the outside of our glasses in while we were still free from the constraints of existence. I remember it so clearly, a better time. I'm certain. The Mandala Effect I can't tell you why this wasn't released by a bigger label than little old Plateau 5. I can't tell you why I haven't heard people talking about Blue Hue. I can tell why that should change right this second. With incredibly well produced lower ends, Driving rhythms, fun melodies and pretty bloody ripper album artwork if I may say so, The Mandala Effect makes for a worthy listen. Hitting Bowls starts the album off in cool style. the tibetan singing bowl sounds sends pure DMT into your head as it fills the space left by the other layers of the song. The melody floating in for the second half creates great energy and allows us to cruise through track. Positivictricity, go on, be honest with yourself, try and say that in one go. Another cruisy track is filled with soft layers that float around your head while the kickdrums pushes the track to it's final message about just being positive dammit! Cosmic Conference, the cosmos, home to all conferences known to life. Any conference ever had will happen right here, in our cosmos. Super clubby atmospheres and rumbles take this track into hyperdrive. The low end is THICK and fills the track with just enough space for the light high notes to sparkle along. The main lead melody could have been given a bit more emphasis but I aint saying i didn't enjoy it. Mind Modem brings us another big track that really blasts off at that 3:40 point. I was drifting through the first half of the track just having a daze then that break came and brought back to dance land. As Simon Cunninghurst would say 'Pretty dope' Methamorph this must be science for 'Absolute aggressive madness'. My favourite of all the extra clubby tracks. Super hot, I know it's true, no Mandala Effect here, just solid memory of a solid song. The Mandala Effect A longer track suggests to me that blue Hue has more ideas that he is willing to work with. And right I am, the main melody is super cool. Still light, but infectious. Dropping Society is the kind of track that starts and makes you think that you know what sort of song you are going to get. But as soon as the other layers start to seep in you quickly become lost in it's funkiness. Mandala Effect is a very very nice piece of art. The amalgamation of styles and techniques works really well here, resulting in more progressive club type tracks while remaining exciting for their entirety. The melodies are all cool, if not occasionally quiet but that's just the style of the album. this will be my next purchase for sure. It would be great to see more work released from Blue Hue. https://plateau5.bandcamp.com/album/the-mandala-effect
  17. I take this back. All songs here are really magnificent. Different elements present in all songs and structures that change track by track. I do get the hi hat noise issue that others mentioned but find it well worth to endure.
  18. I've been listening to this all day and can confirm that other people should to. Super Funky & cool, production top notch
  19. Yea I'm pretty Aussie. Just moved to Brisbane. 2017 was my last Rainbow, I'm about to lose all cred but I left the Shpongle opening set to go put warm clothes on and also ignored all master classes. Was either at camp or on the dancefloor the entire time.
  20. For something earthy we can go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPPNsIiV9e0
