  1. 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
  2. Discogs user Maroko left this review on the album release page in 2015: https://www.discogs.com/OOOD-You-Think-You-Are/master/497562
  3. 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 :)
  4. Great review, really gives the flavour of what sounds like a wonderful edition of ZNA

  6. 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
  7. Fair play I'm not a fan of every melody in there but for the most part I enjoyed it.
  8. Put a good word in, would you?
  9. 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?"
  10. 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.
  11. Someone mentioned OOOD in this context (thanks! ) so here's 'Spangles', one of our tracks which had an intentional Green Nuns influence when we wrote it in 1997. You should also check out the rest of this mix as it's top... https://youtu.be/3wAA1aUghrY?t=52m42s
  12. It's a shame that the Spanish national healthcare system he's been paying for with his taxes isn't able to provide him with the treatment he needs. And the same for you, Fabien, since you also had to get private treatment it seems. I wish him all the best in his treatment and recovery.
  13. I'll reply in a PM so as not to derail the thread.
  14. I've posted this before ages ago I think, but this track is just stunning IMO. Totally unique.
  15. You guys are gonna just LOVE what Tim Healey and I have done to "Children of the Last Generation"!
  16. Producing electronic music whilst tripping is HARD. Did it once, in 1995. I like what came out of that night but I didn't enjoy the process.
  17. We played live - chillout and main floor - at ZNA last year, but they've told me they don't want us for a live set in 2017. However it seems that one of us (either Steve or Rama, not me) will probably be DJing in the chill space. TBC. argh I know, makes me cringe every time I see that video!
  18. It's like if Kurt Cobain didn't take the only honest way out, but instead went on to be a judge on X-Factor.
  19. Bless you mate Now, back to the topic...
