Artist: Blue Planet Corporation Title: Overbloody Flood 2015 EP Label: Atmotech Recordings Date: May, 2015 1. Overbloody Flood (2015 Edit) 2. Overbloody Flood (Atmos Remix) Blue Planet Corporation is now a solo project of Gabriel Masurel and if you ask anyone in the know, one of the most important acts in the goa psytrance scene from the good old days. He released one album Blue Planet in 1999 when goa was practically on the way out and then pretty much dropped the mic and said "I'm out. Deal with it." Crystal. I'm out. Seems pretty f*cking cocky until you listen to that album. Talk about taking the express train to greatness. That album is a bonafide classic of TRANCE no matter what label you try to saddle it with. Now I'll be honest with you I haven't been keeping up with what he's been doing. I've got kids and those delicious pork chops for dinner ain't gonna make themselves. And let's face it the track record of the greats from the glory days coming back really isn't that good. But something told me to give this a listen. And I'm glad I did. First of all I will tell you that I didn't really care for the original track. Just didn't move me and he has plenty others that are superior. So from where I'm standing it was ripe for a remix. He slows it down to progressive tempo and increases the length. Before you begin your eye roll somehow he packs it with details and it sounds even more goa than the original. Clearly some black magic is afoot! Throw in the emotional strings and bouncy beat and this is a jam packed party in a track. Hippies rejoice! "I can't feel my face when I'm with you!" The Atmos Remix is another epic progressive arrow in the quiver. Less goa, but more vast, open space. It drifts amidst the clouds and is a great track, but I prefer the previous. If you're an Atmos fan then perhaps you have a different opinion. Bottom line I love where BPC is heading if this is any indication. Now just one more thing...can you please work something out where we the goa loving public can get a Blue Planet reissue? I already have a mortgage, student loans, and car payments so fishing in the Discogs pool would just sink me deeper into debt. Just a small request. Great ep and highly recommended. Get it here!
