  2. Hey guys. Got a new release on Ektoplazm! Albumpreview: Xenofish returns to Ektoplazm with his fifth album, Enhancer, jointly produced by fellow German producer Mellow Sonic. Whereas previous works strayed more into psychedelic drum ‘n bass territory this one marks a return to high-energy psychedelic trance without completely abandoning breakbeat influences. True to form for these artists the sound of the release is characterized by haunting twilight melodies and strong science fiction atmospheres. Mastering and artwork by Christian Becker. Here the downloadlink: http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/xenofish-mellow-sonic-enhancer Wish you all a happy new year!

  4. Artist: Tickets Title: Timelapse Label: Timecode Date: December, 2006 1. Power of Fear 2. Battery 3. Deficit Disorder 4. Existence 5. Showtime 6. The Funkus 7. Tinnitus 8. Back of Your Mind (Remix) 9. Phantom (Remix) "What's your f*cking problem?" Let's start with paying $6800 for a bed and not being able to sleep through the night. That'll make anyone a tad cranky don't you think? Sleep number? My sleep number is 4. As in 4 is the number of hours of uninterrupted sleep I seem to be able to string together. I could get that many on a Filipino transvestite hooker. Bah. Must have a lot on my mind. Money, getting adjusted to a new city and life. Isis. One thing thing that doesn't keep me up is Timecode (good God that is a terrible segue) and their commitment to quality psytrance. Tickets is Josef Summs and his debut album was a good one when it came out almost 8 years ago. It's since been surpassed in depth and chaos, but the powerful bass lines and strong kicks still sound good. True Timecode style with acid and dark atmospheres. While having lost a bit of it's luster it's still a strong release. Come get a digital punch in the face. Timecode Bandcamp Mdk
  5. Artist: Various I guess? Title: Unexpected EP Label: 3D Vision Date: May, 2014 1. My Name Is Joe 2. Fuel On (Transwave Live Mix) Oh this was unexpected all right. Ok. Let's look at the facts. Awesome label in 3D Vision and the master(s) of psychedelia in Koxbox. Everything should be great. Got my pads on for safety and the helmet is cinched extra tight. Yet somehow this was a total clusterf*ck. Let's start with the Fuel On Remix. Transwave already tried this on the Frontfire album of 2009. Not content to leave well enough alone they Frontfired it again. Taken a classic track with zero flaws and full-on-ed it to the bone. It's too shiny and polished. I hate to bring up Astral and the album which shall not be named, but this lesson should've been learned a decade ago. My Name is Joe is a lot of pounding without any substance. Thumping beat and a lot of harsh, angry sounds. It's not often that I bash 3D Vision, but this one earned that treatment fairly. Beatport Mdk

    "V/A - Snuff"

    Artist: Various Title: Snuff Label: Terror Lab Industries Date: July, 2011 1. Brain Hunters - Snuff 2. Ironstein Vs. Dani Filth - Dr. Stein 3. Absense - Litt Avskum 4. Sub-Zero - Antichristvs 5. Dani Filth - The Harvesting V2 6. Ironstein Vs. Excell - Tripple Distilled 7. Damage - Blowing Up Your Speakers 8. Hiyamyzo - Pussy Power 9. Zinx - Articulator 10. Stereopanic - Viper 11. NRS - Evil Men "Hit me...hit me so it hurts." Good...God this terrible. Why do I keep doing this to myself? Forget the fact that the subject matter is reprehensible. The music itself is one buildup and d-list horror move sample after another. For those that don't know a snuff film is a film that shows an actual murder of a human being. Now Terrorlab Industries has made it a business model to shock. All you have to do is look at their album covers. At some point (um, we are way f*cking past that point) the shock value wears off and now you have to stand on the quality of the music. Well, see...now we've got a problem. The atmosphere as you may have guessed is dark with hammering bass lines. Incessant build ups and a structure that manages to crawl in that fetid dank space between darkpsy and night time full-on. Usually I can find a few tracks on their compilations that make the misery a little more bearable. Not here. This album reminds me of the goth kid in high school who dressed in black and wore trench coats. He always gave you a hateful look and was into some pretty twisted sh*t. Well he secretly had a crush on the head cheerleader and built it up in his mind that he was just misunderstood. If he could only explain to her and show her his true heart, she would see he was in pain and that all of "this" was just an elaborate act. Naturally she's horrified by this guy and spurns his advances. Next thing you know she and the whole squad are found in pieces in this psycho's fridge. I think these guys need a sabbatical to find some inner peace. Right now their music is all the same just with different album covers. You know what might be cool? If they did a dark ambient album...Yeah, that would work. Same vibe without the brutality. Because this world cannot afford to lose any more cheerleaders. Psyshop Beatspace Mdk
  7. Artist: Various Title: Night Terrors Label: Terror Lab Industries Date: February, 2012 1. Kwaailight RUBIX QUBE 2. Dark Jungle (Smashed rmx) Z3RO 3. Where Ever ORCA 4.

Amazing Simba (Z3ro rmx) REMOVE 21. Absolute Truth ORCA, TECHNODROME "I'm in the VIP, Surrounded by groupies, Drinking up me some Patron, And they keep on telling me that I rock...and roll!" Wow, you really went there. Ok, ok... It's easy to pick on this label with its severely over the top imagery. But besides catering to the mentally disturbed and half naked vampire chicks they have actually thrown out some pretty good music. I liken it to working with Woody Allen. Sure he's embarrassing and probably a pedophile, but a butt load of people still line up to be in his sh*tty movies. And in no way am I insinuating that this Mexican label is associated with pedophilia. Last thing I need is a little Mexican justice showing up unannounced on the doorstep in the form of...let's say a package the approximate size of a hat box. So as you can tell from the disturbed individual on the cover in which the word terror appears 3 times this music firmly plants itself in the darkness. In fact the first CD is called Out of the Night. And oh boy does it come out swinging. Full power berserker mode with acid flung in all directions. Even Orca put out a bit of grooviness which means I gotta go get the shovel from the shed and dig up the daisy blanked I had dumped on him. It only took 5 tracks before Ironstein & Co. had to assault my ears with those ostentatious buildups, which for this label is a win. And the cheesy samples didn't begin until The Forsaken. No big deal. That's why God invented the skip button. The entire first disc is intense and will tire you out. By the end your mosh pit brutality will be little more than pinballing off other dancers. P*ssy. I know I should be embarrassed by listening to Dopeman. And I am. But I can also tell you that I've been singing that hook all morning. My groupies are ages 2 and 5 and they just kicked my ass in Candyland while sipping on apple juice. The second disc into the light starts with We Have Explosive...shouldn't that be explosives? Unless you just have one. Maybe they didn't let you finish...perhaps it's explosive diarrhea. In which case you go stand over there. Keep going. It's a slower track (as if they knew you needed concussion recovery time) but it still fits right in. Even though the second disc is on the lighter side it's not sleepy time. The problem is if this label isn't bringing the heat the rest comes off as rather impotent sounding stuff. Hardly worth being thrown in the cell with the anarchist on the cover. It seems like they did it this way to broaden their market share and catch those who don't like it as heavy whilst still appealing to the base. Psyshop Beatspace Mdk
  8. Artist: Various Title: Sonic Solutions Label: Timecode Records Date: October, 2005 1. Bringdanoise (Broken Toy rmx) DAMAGE 2. Far Side DIGITAL TALK 3. Mutant Rebellion XTRA UNIT 4. Alien Hunterz CHROMATONE AND RANDOM 5. Human Poison PHATMATIX 6. Terror Former SHIFT 7. Contraband PHYX 8. Asnamus AZAX SYNDROM 9. Dendron ARTIFAKT "I wanna see stars!" You need to see a doctor. There's a grapefruit stickin' out yo forehead! Ah this is one of the thoroughbreds in the Timecode stable. Run horsey run! Darkly melodic smashes tumble one after the other with well known artists doing the damage. Acid everywhere and grooves to keep the body moving. The trakcs are bursting with power and samples that add to the atmosphere. Only downside? Triskell and Phatmatix (Xtra Unit) only made one track together. But holy sh*t what a track.

  9. Title : Pag Asa Label : Phonix Records Cat no. : PHODIGI008 Format : Digital download Release Date: 21st March, 2014 (JunoDownload 2 Week Exclusive) World Wide Release: 4th April, 2014 Track 1 Mastered by Dash Hawkins @ Glitch Studio, South Africa Track 2 Mastered by Ady Connor @ TRK Studios, United Kingdom Track 8 Mastered by Dale Byl @ DB Mastering, South Africa All other tracks mastered by Alon Laifer @ Orca Studio, Israel Artwork by Etnarama In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. The super typhoon caused unimaginable loss of life and the displacement of more than 4 million people. We at Phonix Records believe that the relief efforts there are a cause worthy of our support. Thus the story of 'Pag Asa' the Filipino word for hope came into being. Hope is the central idea of our release as all proceeds from sales will be donated to children's charity World Vision focusing on relief efforts in the Philippines. Artists from all over the world have joined us to help bring this vision to reality. The end result is a compilation encompassing some of the freshest acts in the twilight psytrance genre. To start things off we have rising talent Glitch, from South Africa, who introduces us to the surreal 'Karma Bonus' an understanding of how human elements interact, showing how one good turn deserves another. Following him is the French genius Brain Driver's epic, 'The Box', a story of twists and turns, a box full of surprises. Bringing us back to reality, Remove instills a sense of calm madness through the ancient elemental technique 'Be Water'. To take things deeper, Catarsis the deadly duo of X-Side and System Sequence from Mexico take listeners on a 'Twisted' trip through an alternate dimension, the lull before the storm that is South African scientist Sonic Assault's 'Edge of Sanity'. The talented Hysteria then sets off on a melodic journey, describing the wonders of our universe and how its vastness can still fit into 'Just One Cap'. Keeping the high energy levels going are beat hackers Distant Touch and Fright Rate who tell the disjointed tale of the 'Hillbilly Stripper'. Disoriented and still reeling from the pumping endorphins, South African duo Disco Volante (Critical Mass and Risky Business) take over your lost mind, after all the old saying does say 'Finders Keepers'. The final chapter of our journey by System Sequence - 'Pag Asa' encapsulates all we wish to say through this album, and leaves us with the message of hope, with the music giving us the strength to get back up after the psychedelic maelstrom and rebuild. A special thanks to Orca aka Alon Laifer, the Israeli twilight master for his impeccable mastering for a majority of this release. This is a release for those who enjoy energetic, powerful twilight psytrance and believe in the healing power of music. Above all this release is intended for those who like us believe in the message of hope that we as human beings can come together to help the unfortunate in their time of need.

  10. Hey guys, I got yesterday a new release on Ektoplazm. This time a bit more themed album with dark psytrance sound. Check it out here: http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/xenofish-lune
  11. Artist: Android Spirit Title: Synthetic Organism Label: TIMECODE Catalogue: TCCD031 Format: CD/Digital Release: january 17th 2014 Artwork: Meskalart Mastering: Scorb@Trick Music Tracklist 1. OMdma 142 bpm 2. Kirobo the Robot 143 bmp 3. Swirl in Unity 145 bpm 4. Born in the Desert (feat. Distant Touch) 145 bpm 5. Targaryen Blood 144 bpm 6. High as a Kite 147 bpm 7. Freedom South Africa 146 bpm 8. Tokolojoe 144 bpm 9. Tickets – Remember (Android Spirit edit) 147 bpm Timecode Records presents the debut album of Android Spirit, a Marburg (Germany) based project by Josef Summs (aka Tickets/Brethren) from South Africa and Till (Daksinamurti) from Germany. Both artists join forces to go beyond the barriers and boundaries of the natural realm to create an atmosphere of undiscovered audio frequencies filled with alien technology and ancient imagery. Inspired by their surrounding and musical background they combine the best of both spectrums to send out hypnotic and ecstatic frequencies into orbit. Retrodelic Goa vibes paired with South African energy and influences of both temporary night and morning music makes this album a sonic hybrid suitable for any time of the day - Twilight 2.0. This release also contains a collaboration with Timecode’s newly signed artist Distant Touch. Robotic music with human emotion. https://www.facebook.com/AndroidSpirit https://www.facebook.com/Timecodesa http://www.timecode.co.za contact&bookings: timecode@timecode.co.za
  12. Artist: Various Title: Replicants Vol. III Label: Replicant Records Date: June, 2013 1. Menog & Chromatone - Who Are We? 2. Earworm - Back In Play 3. Khopat - Adapting 4. Ex-Gen - Zombification "Drugs might actually cause people to wake up." I wasn't familiar with this label, but once I heard Audio Discharge they had my attention. Looking at the covers for their releases they seem to have a fascination with Satan and gas masks. Whatever you're into I suppose. Have you seen the Terror Lab Industries fetish? Oy. All four of these tracks are great. Let me state that out front. However two great tracks are bookended by two f*cking outstanding smashers. The first and last tracks are absolute acidic sodomy. Menog & Chromatone pound home that we ain't in Kansas anymore while Ex-Gen has become my favorite twilight artist. This will get the blood pumping. Beatport Mdk
  13. Artist: Sidhartha Title: Into Immortality Chapter One & Two Label: Hypergate Records Date: April, 2013 Chapter One 1. Into Immortality 2. Yutopia Paradox 3. Single Atoms 4. Dominant Species Chapter Two 1. Sidhartha & TDR & Shaddai - Iori Yagami 2. Symmetrix & Sidhartha - Time Is Your Illusion 3. Sidhartha & Tryon - 4th Dimension Encounter 4. Sidhartha - Wonder In The Night What's with that little thing in the corner. Looks like a peppermint. Makes me want a candy cane. If acid and lasers are your preferred sweet than this is Christmas and Easter on the same day. Sidhartha has been around for a while and here he delivers two twilight EP's. The first one is all him and the second one he enlists some friends to help with the heavy lifting. Into Immortality- There is a certain amount of groove to be found here amidst the fast paced intensity. And it seems really fast. With the rapid pace I feel like he's trying to fit a lot in on the move. Like the drive thru guy at Wendy's attempting to hand me my order as I blow by him at 45 miles an hour. Not a bad bouncy opener. Yutopia Paradox- "If there are extra terrestrial beings out there where are they?" Wal Mart. Where else would they be? It begins as just generic full-on, but he eventually begins the acid shower and some great movement. Good, but not great. Single Atoms- Didn't care for this one. It was noisy and had the depth of a kiddie pool. Dominant Species- I guess this is where the drug use started because this is simply put an all out assault bursting with acid and thumping kicks. With just a couple of chances to catch one's breath it moves like a rhino through a door built for a smurf. Iori Yagami- It's on to part two and right away it seems more focused and deeper. Lots of juicy bits flying about with a powerful punch. The sticky icky is everywhere so bring a towel. The samples are muffled with more grunting and groaning than a late night Taco Bell visit. These guys know what I'm talkin' about... Time is Your Illusion- Who ordered the meal with extra lasers? This is a fat guy in daisy dukes on rollerblades without brakes going downhill. You can't turn away and there is going to be a lot of damage. Great lose your mind track. 4th Dimension Encounter- Teaming up with twilight Jesus (Tryon) it's more acid washes than the 80's. The ass shaking is in full force immediately as they paint a picture. But they don't use brushes. They use buckets. Wonder In The Night- With the final track it seems he wants to end on a less bombastic note. But it doesn't reflect who he is. It's rather boring especially placed next to the other monsters. Put that f*cking crash helmet back on. Two EP's. Lasers and acid. Powerful twilight music. That's what you're gonna get and that's what I woulda wrote if I could get away with a two sentence review. But that's not my style. I liked part two better as it was a straight up out of control freight train with no brakes. And I ain't Denzel. Beatport Chapter One Beatport Chapter Two Mdk
  14. Artist: Speedball Title: Reloaded EP Label: Fractal Records Date: May, 2013 1. Kingston 2. Universo 3. Locked Ball 4. Hyperion "Welcome to the f*cking universe!" Hells yeah! Where's my sippie cup? And who took all the motherf*cing Goldfish? Not since the invention of the taco has there been a greater contribution from Mexico. There. I said it. Speedball are Javier Durán Cortes & Raul Gonzalez and their debut album Human Disorder showed that they were not messing around. There are certain tracks you hear that stick with you. They never get old and always cause you to get out of your seat and dance like a crazy person. For me it was Fully Awake by Electric Universe. But it was also Buenos Muchachos by these guys who took that Goodfellas laden track and annihilated anything I've heard recently. Speedball take twilight music to that other level where only a mentally unstable few dare to tread. It's acid laden and carries a big kick and rumbling basses. This is music that unleashes the wrath you may have pent up, and all you can do is look back and hope you have clean underwear. Futuristic hyper trance with an intense pace is the name of the game on 75% of this EP. I can only assume that Kingston was the product of a very fruitful journey to Jamaica. Make some new friends did ya? Irie man, irie. Sometimes our music disappoints and does the same old tired song and dance. With all the releases I suppose it's to be expected. These guys however helped to restore my faith in the good old psytrance beatdown. Suck it Oakenfold. Beatport Mdk
  15. Undertaker – Night Stories Album: Night Stories Artist: Undertaker Genre: Full On, Twilight Size: 179MB License: CC Price: Free and Donations Track List: 01 - Maniac Killa 02 - Anonymous Absolution 03 - Unhuman (Undertaker Remix) 04 - Uskyldig Offer 05 - 3 Days On Dark 06 - Nuclear Man 07 - Purple Haze (Undertaker Remix) 08 - Cyborg Rebelion 09 - Big Mentira 10 - Last Two Boys Scouts I listened to this album a few times and my favorite thing about it was the wonderfully solid baselines. This reminds me of Orca, another Full-On Night producer who plugs in some hard electro inspirations into his productions. The difference between his music and Undertakers music is the quality, however. Even though Undertakers baselines hit each track hard, there are a few tracks here I did not enjoy as much as I thought I would. The artist does a fantastic job in creating some thick, gooey, and massive bass progressions that are destined for dancing, but there are many areas I feel are claustrophobic with sounds. These areas ruin the vibes for me, and urge me to only play segments of the track rather than the full song. There are many tracks that are simply repetitive and focus solely on that great bass… but I crave more progression, feeling, and climax from this nighttime style. The mastering is pretty good for most tracks, although at times they seems to focus on the low end spectrum. For example, the third song, Unhuman, has a lot of high frequencies that need to be toned down. I have to skip this track with my headphones on and they rattle my car. The next bit, Uskyldig Offer, has better mastering until the song jams sounds together near the two minute mark. That rising synth in the background is pretty cool, however, and I enjoy the buildup. If those sounds were layered correctly, this would be a fantastic track. The progression is very good, especially when it says “You are not alone” and kicks that delicious beat we crave right into Full-On action. At the four minute marker, the ambience in the background is awesome! Work on piecing together the puzzle pieces in a neater fashion and you can do great things. Right now, not all the pieces match the big picture. Specifically, the edgy lightning-sounding synths are too loud. Try filtering them a bit. Hidden in the album, there are a few very well done gems I can see myself playing on the dance floor when the moon rises high in the air. Nuclear Man is an excellent edgy full on experience that will please many ears. The sounds are mixed well together and progress into a well done style. If only every track was this good, then this album would earn higher praise. The voices really pull me in deep. The sounds go well together, and that is why I love it. In many tracks, a lot of the instruments are not as thought out. My advice would be to focus on your best sounds, plug them in all directions to be perfectly fitting and surround, engulf the listener in unexpected progression climaxes, and keep moving the crowds with your crystal clear basses. I would love to see more from you! Keep it up. Look back to Purple Haze… now, that one you did right! 7/10 Download here on Ektoplazm (MP3, FLAC, WAV) - Review by FatKidWitaJetPak (Nick Sumbles) - Special Thank to Ektoplazm for the download bandwidth.
  16. Artist: Orca Title: Insanity Now EP Label: Disasterpeace Records Date: March, 2013 1. Freek 2. Alien Conspiracy feat. Hiyarant 3. Straight To Hell "This...is going...to..." Suck? Blow sweaty monkey dick? Appeal to the lowest common denominator and make your family sad? Well, it doesn't do that, but the first track has elements of all three I would imagine. Look, if you throw a grapefruit over the plate you gotta be prepared to get a little dizzy. *Holds head in hands* Look what you made me do, use a baseball reference. Which means I just crushed your sh*t over the left field wall. What possessed you to make such a vapid commercial wasteland of a first track? And that buildup...I've had paper cuts that felt better after I refilled a salt shaker. Go sell that to Nutek would you? Alien Conspiracy is better and good to see you working with Hiyarant. It can only help. Straight to hell is a hugely fun track that will get you moving with all its crazy scraping leads. It's relentless and some of the best stuff since Fist of Fury. Reminds me a lot of Frozen Ghosts barely contained insanity. Yummy. Disasterpeace continues to be a destination for the rip roaring twilight and it's good to see Alon make a recovery on this EP after that...ahem, hiccup. So like Meatloaf said... "Quit lookin' at my b*tch tits!" Beatport Mdk
  17. Artist: Outer Signal Title: Psy Fi Travel EP Label: Mechanik Records Date: February, 2013 1. Invasion 2. Space Travel 3. Z3ro Signal 4. Psy Fi Outer Signal are Gil Stoler & Lior Yosha and are 3D Vision artists. They specialize in the acid drenched psychedelia that makes me smile. They released their one and only album (Fabric of Space) back in 2009 and have produced music for labels such as Timecode, Sonic Motion, Yabbai. And you get more of the same. The compilation gets more detailed and acid heavy as you get through the tracks. The dark atmosphere is ever present and tracks like Z3ro Signal shreds. The only problem I have with it is that it's 8 bucks for 4 tracks. I realize that is only 2 per track, but 2 more dollars and that's what I would pay for a full album. Still, it's very good twilight psytrance that should get you your acid fix. Beatport Mdk
  18. Artist: Various Title: Smashed - Remix - Ed Pt. 2 EP Label: Dropland Recordings Date: December, 2012 1. Damage (A-Mush Remix) 2. Physical Matters (Magneto Remix) 3. Physical Matters (Brain Driver Remix) So this is part 2 eh? Smashed gets other twilight artists to remix his tracks and puts them on an EP. The first one was outstanding so the bar is pretty high for number two. Let's see...Damage was on the Synthetic Alchemy and Another Dimension compilations whilst Physical Matters...hell I don't know where that track came from, but the two remixes here make a total of three that I know of. The A-Mush remix is such a bad ass acid banger that I don't even mind the very cliched build up. C'mon man, use your imagination. You were this close to detonation. Magneto had an album called Scope that was another acid ripper and he continues that trend. Layer upon layer of the sticky icky whilst the bass line pounds away like a relentless migraine. Brain Driver tackles Physical Matters as well with a good break and sounds that make you think you're walking through a hallucination. Good acid monkey poo flinging with thumping bass lines. Couple that with dark atmospheres and you've got a nice EP on your hands. Yes I used whilst twice in this short review. I don't know if it's correct English. I'm not from England. Beatport Mdk
  19. Artist: Mindblaster Title: The Collapse EP Label: Pyrethrum Records Date: December, 2011 1. The Fall of Empire 2. Other Worlds 3. Disorder I've neglected the releases from our friend over at Ektoplasm lately so since he performs a vital service for our community I thought I would put a few of his offerings under the microscope. Mindblaster is Ukrainian Andriy Tykhonov and I was quite impressed with this 3 track EP. It's powerful with punchy bass and orchestral touches that are very evident during the breaks. The atmosphere is dark (looking at the track titles will tell you that) and the melodies will have you thinking of warring clans from the dark ages. Some spots were a little sparse and maybe went on a little long, but there is most assuredly talent here. My favorite was Disorder with its swagger had me be-bopping all over the place. Recommended.

  21. Artist: Tryon Title: The Source EP Label: Kaos Krew Records Date: October, 2012 1. Noise Freak - Tryon Vs. Digital Talk 2. The Void - Tryon Vs. Mindcore 3. The Flame "Keep on doing what you've always done. Keep on being what you've always been." Oh yeah...now we're talking. Telmo gets it. Take a thumping beat, drench in acid and repeat. Why is this so hard for some? He's not here to weave a complex tale dissecting the intricacies of our existence. His goal is to make you get up and dance with a sledgehammer combination of lasers and acid. His style drives in the fast lane where your grandma insists on staying with the right blinker on. If you're in his way well, you've got another grandma right? "Oh thank you young man. I-I-I don't know who he was, but he was one of those foreign fellas. Probably in the Taliban. Did you know they make their women wear potato sacks? I don't. Both died of cancer, but let's be honest it would be much cooler to go with smoking acid marks on your back. His collaboration with Digital Talk is my favorite as it is unrelenting and super rhythmic. He's got this ability to use a sample that is clear, but sounds far away. Adds to the mayhem for me. If you're a fan of the high tech acid heavy style consider this recommended. Beatport Mdk
  22. Artist: Various Title: Sonic Alchemy Chapter II Label: Sonic Motion Records Date: October, 2012 1. Technology - Outer Signal 2. Impulses Reimagined - Deeper In Zen 3. Eureka - Yurika Sonic Motion Records is back at it again with the 2nd chapter of...ah, you can read. The name sounded familiar so I went back and "re-discovered" that I had actually reviewed the 1st chapter here. And after reading what I had written I'm still uncertain whether I liked it or not. Well I must not have liked it enough to keep it cause I no longer have it. Compiled by Atyss again (whose latest release Luxe In Nocte also befuddled me) he offers 3 tracks in the same night full-on style. Outer Signal makes a track that reminds me of California Sunshine with guitar in a prominent role, but I listened to it anyway. I came away with a definite feeling. Hardware that is effective and delicious? Yes please. Impulses Reimagined- I've always liked Mr. Brian's music, but his persistent thumping and warbling on this track left me indifferent. Nothing really to discover, just temple pounding. Eureka- Hey look, the track name sounds like the artist, but it's spelled differently. That's called a heterograph. Like their and they're. You and ewe. How many can you name? I'm serious because that holds my interest better than this track. Sonic Motion I'm disappointed. This was fairly benign without any of your usual characteristic bombast. Maybe you should stop with the EP's and just focus on compilation work. I don't know the answer, oh wait yes I do. Get better tracks. Beatport Mdk
  23. Artist: Various Title: Super Cereal Label: Disasterpeace Records Date: March, 2012 1. Hiyamyzo - Soaring 2. Wired Vs. Zinx - The World is At War 3. Dirty Motion - Schyzophrantic (Sinful Reactions Rmx) 4. Hiyarant - Express 5. Ironstein - Absolut Carnage 6. Mr. Jack - Alter Ego 7. Frozen Ghost - Global Thermonuclear War 8. Orca - Spaceships 9. Tryambaka - Acherion Orchid 10. Hysteria - Deviant 11. Critical Mass - 16 Volt "Truth is for pussies." Yeah, this might hurt. Ever been overlooked? "Yeah I really like the direction Timecode is going." "What about Disasterpeace?" "Oh! And that new joint from Nexus Media is the sh*t!" "It's like you don't even hear me. By the way, does your Mom and Dad know you came out?" Disasterpeace is that other South African label. Timecode and Nexus Media are king, but these guys somehow get overlooked. Which is a shame because they have delivered the goods. Whether it's Frozen Ghost's Sin for Dinner, Ulterior Motives by Rubix Qube or Badass by Xatrik, this digital label offers up the most intense hyper trance around. Pounding rhythms, bass lines with a mind of their own and usually enough of the sticky icky to satisfy your neighborhood whore. Compiled by Myzo it says for twilight goodness all you have to do is just add milk. I have milk. Haven't checked the date on it, but it's probably still good. And it's gluten free for all your unfortunate digestive requirements, so you got that going for you. "Same sh*t...different day." Hey you said it I didn't. I love the twilight stuff. And fairly or unfairly I compare everything to the Midnight Storm series because for me that is the pinnacle of the twilight genre. Bombastic and epic. Sorry Ben, this is not that. Hiyarant, Dirty Motion, Tryambaka, Orca, Frozen Ghost...a lot of major players are represented here. All have made awesome tracks. They just decided not to put them on this compilation. Look at the cover. Even the superhero has a disappointed and disapproving look. Not feeling so super are you? Gone is the thick and brooding atmosphere and acid for acid's sake is easy to spot. There were parts of each track I liked, but none of them brought the heat or was memorable. It seemed a little more geared for the commercial crowd with frequent stops and starts and too many samples. That said it is thumping and in spots it will quench your thirst for aggressive hyper trance. Middle of the road I think. Seems like there is a reason Timecode and Nexus Media are top dogs.

  24. Artist: A-Mush Title: Behind The Dark Label: LAD Records Date: May, 2008 1. Another Place 2. Behind The Dark 3. Dyabolyk Toy 4. Hell Boy 5. Hidraulic System 6. Jigsaw Is Dead 7. Kill Freddy 8. LSD Trip 9. Resident Of Gods 10. Sin City Supposedly wine gets better with age. I haven't drunk enough wine that I couldn't get at the supermarket to know this. Some people become more attractive as they age. Look at George Clooney. What is he...in his 50's? He's still pulling some hot tail. Better example...Sean Connery. He's 75 if I'm a day old and he can melt chicks just by talking to them. I usually have to have my kidnapping rope and duct tape. We all have our own recipes for success. My point is that this was released back in 2008 and just like the above examples it has gotten better with age. No it hasn't. But let's be fair. It wasn't that good to begin with. I mean, look who they had to work with. "Needs more bananas!" "You've said that about every f*cking track!!" At times darkspy at times night-full on its monotonous bass line and acid deluge seem thrown together like a trancers wardrobe. Buildups galore, cheesy samples, and I don't think this project knew there were more than 3 presets on a synthesizer. This is the music I'm pumping when I'm driving down the road and the windows are open so you can't really hear it anyway. If you dropped me in the middle of Bombay and gathered up 10 Indians I would be pretty easy to spot right? Well, these tracks are Indians 1,2,3,4...you get the idea. The only thing separating the tracks are the track names and last I checked people don't dance at a poetry slam. But I'm sure there'd be a lot of finger snapping. But there is a bright side. As it was released in 2008 they have only gotten better and better. Their track Quarantine on MMD's Digital Manipulation Device? Awesome. Hunab Ku's Mind Disastour? Hella awesome. And round it out with Psycho Slut from Malfunktion Part 2 and this project is on the train to twilight players. So yes, their first album was weak, but I say better to come out weak and finish strong than Pleaidians. There I said it. So skip it, but know that these guys are on the rise.

  25. Artist: Zinx Title: Unlcean EP Label: Terror Lab Industries Date: April, 2012 1. Rated R 2. Techno Slave (with Brainwash) 3. Audio Violator (with Iluchina) "You think I'm some kind of nutjob? What proof have you got?" Terror Lab Industries continues its assault on most of your senses yet again with this EP from Zinx. He is João Varela from Portugual and it ain't his first time with a shocking cover....or have we already forgotten Dead By Dawn? Look at this thing. Unclean, I get it like a vampire, but of course this chick is just running around in panties like she returned to a frat house to exact revenge for her date rape. Credit where credit is due, she's hot. If you know this label, then you know what type of music is inside. He gets by with a little help from his friends on a couple of tracks delivering violent samples and imagery with the requisite amount of acidic bloodsplatter that you would expect. For me it's not bad, but I feel he is straying towards that commercial territory that threatens to swallow a lot of artists. There are some build ups here, some stops and starts...but it's still pretty aggressive twilight darkness and metallic synths. I think my favorite was the last one that continued to evolve the whole way through. Worth it? Meh, probably. When dealing with this style I hold it up to what I consider the gold standard of twilight mayhem, the Midnight Storm series. Yeah, it ain't that. Beatport Mdk
