    Ott - Mir

    Hey, in case you guys didn't catch it - Ott is going to self release this album. Not on any label.
  3. Yes, definitely Liquid Stranger. And Sub Swara and Nit-GriT... Nucleya's remix of Tonic totally rocks my socks: http://soundcloud.com/nucleya/tonic-midival-punditz-nucleya-remix I have been sufficiently inspired by this "tribal psystep" style to make a little mix. Hope y'all enjoy http://soundcloud.com/grahf/tribal-psystep-mix-1 tracklist: Bandish Project - Brown Skin Beauty (Liquid Stranger Astral Abduction Mix) David Starfire - Cobra (Sub Swara Remix) Chase & Status - Eastern Jam (Trillbass Remix) M.E.E.O. - Wilder Beast Yolanda be Cool & Dcup - No Speak Americano (High Rankin's Bait Wobble Remix) David Starfire - Shakti (Jef Stott Remix) Shock One - Adachigahara's Theme Stellamara - Prituri Se Planinata (NiT GriT Remix) Mew - Vaccine (Eskmo Remix)
  4. Among more "traditional" Dubstep artists, Excision, Mimosa, and An-ten-nae stand out as having a more "psy" feel in some (but not all) of their tracks. Honestly, true psystep is a pretty rare niche genre as far as I've found. Anything by Bird of Prey, but you probably already knew that. M.E.E.O. - Wilder Beast from the Flying Sauce compilation (Ektoplazm). This track is a dubstep/psytrance hybrid with a wicked wobble in the breakdown. Soundcloud discoveries: 11:11. Lotsa free tracks, and quite deeply psychedelic too imho. - there's a remix of Pink Floyd on there, that's psy right? Personally I find tribally-influenced dubstep to be quite psychedelic, and there the horizons open a bit: Kalya Scintilla - http://kalyascintilla.bandcamp.com/ Shackleton, David Starfire, Jef Stott, Pavel Dovgal. Desert Dwellers Remixes EPs have some good tribal dubstep tracks. Shackleton has some really cool deep dark minimal dubs, I'd like to investigate this guy more
  5. I have more rare stuff than I thought I did. expensive: Young American Primitive album and Saafi Brothers - Mystic Cigarettes = around $40 each (YAP rereleased his self titled and some unreleased stuff on digital, so the price seems to have actually fallen a bit since then) cheap: Jaia - Blue Energy/Synergy (yellow feather release): $20, bought directly from Dakini mail order. I see it's pretty hard to find now. Adham Shaikh - Essence (normal cd price back when it was released. Apparently this has become rare as well) Asia 2001 - Live: $6.50 (No joke! The cd case still has the price sticker on it. I bought it at Logos records in Santa Cruz CA, a very nice record shop btw. I had no idea this was an uber-rare release until I looked it up on discogs.) With everything and everybody going digital, the thrill of the record shop hunt is not quite what it used to be.
  6. How does Zen/Buddhism influence your work? Do you plan to ever make more music under the Padmasana name?
  7. Tool - Lateralus (listening to samples of new tegma album just before this)
  8. So you don't need a seperate breakout box for the MIDI i/o?
  9. The new rules suck? Did they change? Are they anything different than what is expected on almost any internet forum anywhere, or real life? Not particularly. Boils down to: be decent and nice to others. I don't see how that will prevent any of us from pursuing the main purpose of this forum, which is discussing psytrance. "drug incitation" might mean that one should not incite or suggest that others do drugs. In other words, I can talk about my own experiences, but not recommend that the entire world do the same. This reasonable and cautious from the legal standpoint of the site operators. Mars: I sent a semi-melodramatic email to you at a hotmail account I dug up from a suntrip records page during the downtime. Not sure if that's an account you check often, so I'll repeat the question: what is to become of the old goa reviews and artist info pages? Before the downtime there was a sidebar with links to those old pages, but I'm no longer seeing it. Did they get blown away? Good to see psynews back, I didn't know what I was gonna do without it.
  10. Thanks for reviewing this one Deathposture. I am seriously impressed from the samples I have heard from this album. The sonic manipulations and intelligent breakbeats really set this apart from run-of-the-mill ambient chill. In fact I'm tempted to say that this is some seriously unique and cutting edge work, and that solar fields has progressed a long way over the course of his albums. I suppose I can't say any of that for sure, as I don't own the real thing, but what I have heard is enough to get me salivating.
  11. I also have this exact piece of hardware. It is a soundcard itself; the quality of which really blows away my integrated sound, I didnt think I'd be able to hear the difference but I was quite wrong. I'm using it for dj'ing at the moment... it works well for that because I can output two stereo channels from my computer into the left and right channels of a mixer. For producing I'm not completely convinced this would be the best choice... as it only has 1 stereo input (not including spd/if, but don't you need special hardware for that?) and no microphone input. But it does have MIDI, which is a plus. The sound quality is good for sure, but this doesnt seem to be the best device for recording. So it depends on what you would want to do in the studio.
  12. Set is not exactly new (2003). Coloursfest is a festival in Scotland. I have this burned to cd somewhere, I suppose it's pretty solid hard trance/fullon/whatever but I only like the first two tracks really. Dickster has a pretty amazing groove and cool drippy sounds going on, and the digital blonde remix is of a real classic (li kwan - point zero is in the first hour of oakenfold's 'goa' essential mix). The rest is pretty blah for homelistening IMO, but I'm sure I would've danced my ass off if I was there to hear the set in person.
  13. haha, some ppl got some serious sound equipment here. My current setup is a pair of yamaha little bookshelf speakers that are probably almost as old as I am, and I just added a pair of altec lansings that I bought for $2 at a surplus sale. I have a subwoofer but it doesn't work :\ Suits me fine for the moment, anything more would be hard to transport. I do have the sony mdr-600's though, which I think are the best headphones one can get at normal retail stores around here.
