    But on the first post of the topic, you say the track was played from 1:16... So it seems this is the track (the first minute was the end of Mandalavandalz - Irina)...

    Qiujan - Souladventures 155 bpm

    A brilliant track, I think a little more psychedelic than your usual sound.

    Listening to my entire collection

    It's a good EP for sure, the tracks are quiet in a positive way.

    Exelization - Beyond The Black Lodge

    Timewarp Ego Transplant 09:26 Wolvencore 09:08 Cryolysis 07:52 The Flash 07:57 Motor Warrior 07:20 Gothika 11:00 The Purple Forest 09:11 @Ormionfrom Greece is a well known member of this forum, a Goa/Psy-trance lover but also a die hard fan of the South African style of the 2000s, Twisted System, Shift and co. I confess I never listened to Exelization's previous work but I was very excited to listen to this album. And without a doubt, the power of this release is undeniable. All those fast sounds, melodies and patterns on top of a rocking bassline and heavy kicks make this psy-trance very appealing. It isn't too predictable and the production is very sharp! I enjoy tracks #2 and #3 the most, but there is no weak track in my opinion. It has great energy for the dance-floors, I commented earlier that it could have been released on Timecode Records a decade ago, but I find the overall sound less noisy than the few albums I remember from Timecode. It is no coincidence that Beyond The Black Lodge was released on Timewarp since it still has some dark goa ingredients, though most of the music is simply characterized as night time psy-trance. I was curious to listen to this release and I was not disappointed at all, and if you simply dig quality energetic well rounded psy-trance I can guarantee that you will not be either. Rating: 7/10.

    Solar Plexus - Images Of The 5th Dimension

    Not a masterpiece but I don't understand the harsh reviews above. It sounds amateur a lot of times, with many lazy copy/paste sequences, that said the music is alright and the albums contains a few catchy tracks (for instance Solarplanet).

    Psylent Buddhi - Secrets of the Atom

    Suntrip Records 1. Lunar Core 2. Neura 3. Secrets of the Atom 4. Moksha 5. Convergent Images 6. Metalucid 7. Innerscape 8. Lightswitch Many on this board are familiar with these tracks, I personally was not. The hype surrounding this release made me a little scared that it would not live up to the hype, at least for my personal taste. But what I discovered was really my thing. The Old is Gold adage sounds overstated, however it often proves to be right, and with this album I can agree, these old tracks are wonderful, full of enthusiasm, full of energy. The music is fast, acid, with risk-taking, it was compared to Green nuns of the revolution, I would also compare it to Cosmosis, it is more messy though, but extremely enjoyable and truly psychedelic. Superb material for dancefloors or home listening. The originality and harmonic quality of this release is not to be underestimated in my opinion. Another strong point is that the tracks sound distinct to each other, it is not too homogeneous, and the overall sound is audacious and has strong personality, And in comparison with a lot of other goa artists in this era, Psylent Buddhi puts a lot of attention on the basslines. The basslines hit hard and are an important element of the tracks. If I had to find a weakness I would say the music sounds a bit messy and noisy at times, it's not a big deal though. Overall I cannot neglect the fantastic effort and high energy that sets the theme of this album. This is fantastic news for the scene to see this album finally released. Rating: 8/10.

    Terranoise ‎– Vega Quadron

    Self-released 1 Day Sleeper 6:17 2 Fractum Agnitio 7:54 3 Fradcal Relic 7:03 4 Eternal Alchemy 6:28 5 Celestial Hills 6:11 6 Ad Infinitum 6:42 7 Epicenter 6:42 8 Westbell Catacombs 6:33 Third album from Israeli psy-trance producer Maxim Galinov. Hi-Tech is a strange style, it can sound off-putting, or childish but sometimes entertaining. Surprisingly, even though I am not in love with this style, I thought this album was easy to digest, probably because the tracks are not too long, only one really overtakes 7 minutes. It is very fast-paced from the second track and goes crazy from there. I mean above 160 BPM. It does sound formulaic, but I thought tracks 2 to 5 were actually nice to listen to, of course if you don't take this music too seriously. Melodies however are quite rare, if not for some pads here and there. My attention dropped from track 6 but the ending track is slower and sounds more like typical commercial psy-trance and even contains some melodic sequences. The artist surely enjoys what he is doing, it sounds formulaic and simple though, has some of the ingredients we love to hate in the modern commercial psy-trance sound, but I would recommend the powerful tracks 2, 3, 4 and 5 (vocals in the intro are bad though), just for the experience.

    Goatma - Sword In The Darkness EP

    It is not bad at all. It is good party music. First, awesome cover from Ivan! Now I understand where the other guys on this thread are coming from. The thing is, the psy-trance and goa trance market has became saturated so we quickly have this feeling "I heard this many times before". There is also something about these tracks, the 16-notes melodies are tiresome after a while, in my opinion. That's not unique to this release, I personally feel the same about many other albums that includes too many of these short 16-notes melodies. I think tracks 1 and 2 are the best here, track 1 really contains a lovely rocking bassline, and track 2 has a superb energy together with many modern ingredients that makes the genre interesting to listen to. So overall not bad at all, even though there is definitely room for improvement.

    Somnesia - Infinite Mind

    Timewarp Kobaia (Somnesia Remix) - Light Particles 07:46 Cerebral Landscape 09:12 Anti-Gravity 07:35 Somnesia & PharaOm (Somnesia Remix) - Darkness 08:49 Endorphin Memory 09:08 Moment Of Essence 08:21 Infinite Mind (Alternate Mix) 10:00 Asura vs Aes Dana - Elie (Somnesia Remix) 09:11 Lepidoptera 09:41 When I was a teenager, I started to listen to trance music, mainly discovering artists broadcast by some radio stations. My twin brother and me were just in love with any catchy and mysterious melody. We did not care about the structure of the tracks, the bassline, the kick, what is all around the melodies, it was all about melodies, the more melodies the better. It's only after hitting 18 or 19 years old that we became more aware of what makes a great trance track. Infinite Mind is the 5th full length album from Somnesia. This artist loves melodic goa trance, his productions are all about melodies, if you need a melody fix just buy this one together with all his previous albums. Twirling sounds, emotional pads, acidic sequences one after another. Now, as a few reviewers have already said on this forum, the same issue I have is that it seriously lacks power. I am not a producer but it seems the basslines are too weak, the rhythms are simple, it just lacks energy. The first 3 tracks are a perfect illustration of my opinion, very well made melodies but the music sounds soft. Interestingly, the first track that has a more memorable bassline is the collaboration with PharaOm. Then interestingly again, the track originally made by Asura and Aes Dana has a much more dynamic kickline. So overall I have mixed feelings about this album, I find the work on melodies very serious and enthusiastic, Somnesia's love for melodic goa is very genuine without a doubt. However, I wish there was more attention put on the rest, more focus on the overall energy of the music. I am still able to enjoy this release from time to time, and I have to say the ending track, emotional and deep, is excellent. Rating: 6/10.

    Artifakt - Artifakts

    It's a quite unique album. Experimental psy-trance. The opening track is very good and launches the album perfectly (great bassline). I am surprised there was only one review for this release, if you want something different, playful and influenced by many styles, give this a try. Enjoyable stuff.
