  1. The label who wanted to do the album with us has had to reconsider their plans, unfortunately.
  2. High all Given that our 'You Think You Are' album is now out of print we thought it was about time we made it available again It's available to buy directly from us on our Bandcamp page at https://oood.bandcamp.com/album/you-think-you-are-2012. Cheers! Colin
  3. Discogs user Maroko left this review on the album release page in 2015: https://www.discogs.com/OOOD-You-Think-You-Are/master/497562
  4. This was a very challenging project to master, particularly the live version which was in a heck of a state when it came to me. I'm glad it came out well enough to get some good reviews, personally I like this EP :)
  5. Great review, really gives the flavour of what sounds like a wonderful edition of ZNA

  7. Union Jack - ‘Cactus’ 2017 Remixes [PLATMU96] 1. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Jonno Brien Remix) 2. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Adam Kent Remix) 3. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (OOOD Remix) 4. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Airwave’s Dark and Long Mix) 5. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Quietman Remix) 6. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Original Mix Remastered) Originally released in 1994, ‘Cactus’ is regarded as one of Union Jack’s finest moments. 23 years on, despite a plethora of requests, no remixes have ever been commissioned…until now. Irish Techno DJ/Producer and rising star Jonno Brien originally got the ball rolling last year when he sent in his remix out of the blue. It was quite simply too good to be ignored. Carl Cox, who was one of only a handful of DJ’s to be sent the mix, hammered it worldwide and included it as one of his highlights at the Closing Party @ Space, Ibiza. Adam Kent serves up a driving semi-spangled tech houser. Psychedelic sorcerers OOOD remain faithful to the prickly original but slam it into the 21st planet and beyond. Airwave’s Laurent reappears with an extended gloaming exploration into Cactaceae cornucopia. After a long hiatus, Quietman’s Laurence and Wilf emerge from a shimmering mirage with a sublime slice of desert sunrise. ‘Cactus - 2017 Remixes’ will be released 12th June 2017 on Beatport. Global release 27th June 2017 on Platipus. https://www.beatport.com/release/cactus-2017-remixes/2029590 http://www.junodownload.com/products/union-jack-cactus-2017-remixes/3441490-02/ Simon BerryTech HouseTranceAirwaveJonno BrienAdam KentOOODQuietmanPlatipus
  8. Fair play I'm not a fan of every melody in there but for the most part I enjoyed it.
  9. Put a good word in, would you?
  10. I agree. My recollection is that a good part of the 'bad engineering' issue was due to the fact that many people, if not most, simply didn't know what was actually possible with kick and bass. The release of X-Dream's 'Radio' reset the standard for many producers because for the first time we were able to hear and understand what was really possible in the low end of a trance track, and what this style of music really needed in order to reach its potential. Prior to that, trance producers' ears simply weren't trained in that direction because examples that might have been used to reference a proper phat, punchy, defined kick and bass combo simply wasn't there for the most part, until the release of that album. It took a good few years after its release until most producers gained access to production tools that would let them attain the same levels of quality, because equipment required to get that kind of sound in the analog world was financially out of most people's reach either to buy or to hire. It wasn't until DAWs started coming of age that it became possible for most people to eg. EQ the low end with the precision required. That's true, and this is a journey that goa/psytrance has always been on, as you can see from the fact that the criticism you mention did absolutely nothing to make producers end their quest for the ultimate production quality, particularly in the kick and bass. Radio was a revelation in this respect, and the reason it had such a great effect on the scene as a whole was because it answered the question that I'm sure pretty much every single producer had been asking themselves since they started making trance, which was "how do I get this sounding as big and punchy and clear and powerful as possible?"
  11. If we, or any other Goa Trance producer in the 1990s, could back then have produced kick and bass combos that sounded as strong, punchy, defined, clear and distinct as those we can make today, we would have jumped at the chance. This whole fetishisation of amateur sound design and bad audio engineering is utterly ridiculous.
