  1. Artist: Arronax Title: Crossing The Rubicon Label: Neogoa Date: July, 2014 01 - The Beginning Of Our Journey (144 BPM) 02 - Reaching Exosphere (142 BPM) 03 - The Holtzman Effect (142 BPM) 04 - Dreams Of Planet Earth (143 BPM) 05 - Crossing The Rubicon (143 BPM) 06 - Lightning Bolt (144 BPM) 07 - Crawlers' Pathway (142 BPM) 08 - Point Of No Return (120 BPM) I'm sorry with any other actor this would come across as fierce determination. A real let's get down to business situation. But with Macauly...I mean, it just looks like he's giving a very large man a handjob. And look at him...he looks disinterested like he's done this a million times. Where was I? Crossing the Rubicon. Passing the point of no return. There's no going back. These are all phrases you might hear yourself saying if you you find yourself at Taco Bell at two in the morning. Elmo knows. Sometimes you gotta rock that sh*t out. Did you pay attention to that gif? He's actually rocking one out at 142 bpm. Time it, that's some funny sh*t right there. I just watched that for 8 minutes. But let me be clear...Nothing good happens at Taco Bell at two in the morning. But I'm not at Taco Bell. And it's 3 in the afternoon. Where I am is on a blistering full power journey through uncharted space. Arronax is Mirza Aljić and he has crafted this four on the floor melodic goa trance that holds no pretense. It is what it is. Some goa softens you up and takes you gently into the good night. Not this. This will beat you into a state of trance. A hurricane of futuristic cybertechnology where the colonization of space is well underway. And I love it. Power, layers, furiousity...it's got it. Couple that with Ivan's artwork and it's a visual journey as well. It moves at ludicrous speed and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you like storming goa trance with some old school snarl then cross the rubicon. There ain't no goin' back. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  2. Artist: Various Title: Epoch of the Terrans Label: Suntrip Date: July, 2014 Crossing Mind - Virutal Mind Cleaner Morphic Resonance - Chormatic World Lunar Dawn - Blessings From Irij (Imba Remix) BlackStarrFinale - A New Name GoaTree - The Force Arronax & Somnesia - Black Hole (Revisited) Astrancer - Tetragrammaton Mindphoria - The Picture "Vader was seduced by the dark side of the force." Blacker the berry, sweeter the juice. Just a fact. When you take two great things and smash them together in an unholy and sweaty union the results can either be glorious or horrifying. Peanut butter and chocolate is a truckload of win. Obviously porn and the internet belong together. I honestly cannot think of another reason for the internet. You say information and learning, well I wanna learn what it looks like when 4 chicks do it. And then there's this: Yeah...I'm using detergent to get the chocolate out. Doesn't go together. Oh f*ck you. Let's get back to the good stuff. Neogoa and Suntrip. Two labels that have done more for lovers of goa trance than anyone. Both release quality music as well as fantastic artwork. Suntrip is managed by Anoebis and Mars began in 2004 and Neogoa is captained by Ivan Richpa since 2010. So finally these two juggernauts come together for a long awaited collaboration. All the tracks here were previously heard on Neogoa releases and were compiled by Ivan himself. And if he hadn't given enough he also did the artwork. With Suntrip's help and new mastering by Tim Schuldt they are now packaged into a limited edition CD perfect for collectors. Virtual Mind Cleaner- Crossing Mind does it again with an organic and constantly evolving track which first appeared on Future Architecture 2. Heavily modulated and full of melodic layers his distinct sound is a superb way to open this compilation. Chromatic World- Relative newcomers Morphic Resonance grab the torch with a sound some have likened to goa legends Astral Projection. Considering how long Neogoa has been around (relatively speaking) it's pretty remarkable that a track from their first and only EP made the cut. Storming goa trance with twisted leads that growl with ferocity. Good luck holding back this tidal wave. Blessings From Irij (Imba Remix)- Talk about a guy that's come into his own! With productions that seem to continually get better his blasting remix all but makes the original unnecessary. Part Green Nuns part Oood this remix gets aggressive and sounds deliciously old school. A New Name- Luis's album Auryn was a breath of fresh air so it makes sense to include one of those tracks here. Churning and undulating it's not old school, but more full-on in nature. Twists and turns abound. The Force- Another blasting tune from a new kid on the block. Not that one. But go America. This track rumbles like a 6.5 aftershock setting you up for a screeching frenzy. It's got some heavy ass attitude like a dinner guest with zero manners. Please and than you? F*ck your please and thank you. Black Hole (Revisited)- Acidic bombast at its finest! With a thumping kick the melodies tumble over each other in this nonstop party. The break is sinister like a stalker in the dark. Tetragrammaton- I think that over time this track has become less appealing to me. It's still a detailed effort, but I feel it has been surpassed by newer and shinier trinkets. Add to that the lead in the final minutes is like nails on the chalkboard. Bagpipe trance? The Picture- The last track is a downtempo one lest you think Neogoa only does goa trance. Mellow and smooth from the excellent Turlitava compilation. It boggles the mind with all the outstanding releases Neogoa has had how Ivan was able to narrow it down to just these tracks. Me I would've demanded a double album at least. But I don't really see how you could go wrong with this compilation. Yes they've all been released before for free, but now they are all on one limited edition CD that will give collectors mega boners. Add to that it was remastered by the Suntrip machine and cool looking art from Ivan. I'll go out on a limb and say it. IF you've got a problem with this CD you're a dick. And all the compression and e.q. won't help that. Suntrip Mdk
  3. Artist: Circular Title: Moon Pool Label: Ultimae Records Date: July, 2014 1. Lunokhod 2. Selenic Light 3. Theory of Tides 4. Ashlands 5. Three Moons 6. Imbrium (featuring AES Dana) 7. Synchronous 8. Meteorites "You think you're safe? You are not." The wizards at Ultimae strike again with the latest album from this Norwegian duo. I usually only collect goa, but this label has produced so much quality music that I'm thinking of jumping on the Ultimae bandwagon. That loud "F*ck you!" was from my wallet. And probably my wife also if she ever finds out. Just a few notes... Lunokhod begins as an ambient piece with drifting sounds and emotions for most of it's 13 minute length before a steady thumping kick drives it home. Great opener that blends real world instruments, electronics, and nature sounds. Selenic Light is a massive glacier of shimmering sound reflecting the sunlight right into your eyes. Nary a beat to be found. Theory of Tides is another atmospheric gem that tickles the abstract before it also delivers a steady kick after a lengthy ambient beginning. Deliciously long and satisfying. Ashlands is the most aggressive track yet with a churning, bubbling cauldron of forlorn melodies and electronic sounds. 3 Moons has a deep bass that provides the framework for the smile inducing melody and the bubbling 303 rumbling underneath. You have to strain to hear it, but that draws me deeper into the music. Imbrium featuring Aes Dana is a glitchy track with strong dub overtones. Distorted almost, but it became more enjoyable once the beat disappeared. Imbrium flows right into Synchronous and at the outset is cosmic ambient at its finest. All the layers are perfect, a true front row seat to the moving galaxy. The beat kind of ruins it for me though and it becomes too cluttered. Meteorites closes it out with a very positive and hopeful track that combines the cosmic atmosphere and the sounds of nature. A very good album that I will certainly come back too. Relaxing and thought provoking. Ultimae Psyshop
  4. Artist: Xenofish Title: Datastasis Label: Self-Released Date: July, 2014 01 - Datastasis (178 BPM) 02 - Geiranum (176 BPM) 03 - Primeval Pattern (160 BPM) 04 - Zero Velocity (170 BPM) 05 - Disordered Minds (180 BPM) 06 - Twinmachine (182 BPM) 07 - Shattered Phantasm (176 BPM) This is Christian Becker's fourth album and it is a science fiction journey escorted by drum & bass music. The pace is quite hectic as the bpm's will tell you. As mentioned the atmosphere is definitely cosmic with Fifth Element characteristics. I would say that the intros and his breaks are the parts that appeal to me most. Very dark and descriptive. I like the sound and feel it's very clear, but comparisons to Cybernetika and Mellow Sonic cannot be helped. Is it possible to have an over saturated genre with just 3 participants? I don't think anyone would argue that the king of the hill is Cybernetika with his compositions so full of depth and complexity and that's where I think this suffers. Not because it is of low quality, far from it. But I feel it's just...more drum & bass that doesn't push the boundaries. Doesn't take the music in any direction that the other two projects haven't already done. I hear some great ideas and potential for a Front Line Assembly apocalyptic vibe that I hope he explores further however. It's a good album if you're a fan of futuristic drum & bass, but I ask you Christian what are you going to do to set yourself apart? Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  5. Artist: Travma Title: Doomsday Prophecy EP Label: Timewarp Date: July, 2014 1. Astrojen (Chaos Mix) 2. Modular Sequence 3. The Reality Stop. Just stop it with the Matrix samples. It's tired. You realize that movie came out 15 years ago right? Everyone and their sister used it. It's become a meme, my brain shuts off as soon as I hear it. And what happened to you anyway? Where did your goa go? Are you transitioning? This EP sounds like the shiny new Astral stuff that had everyone rolling their eyes. waiter: Might I interest you in some goa sir? Me: No thank you, I couldn't possibly handle another deep, melodic array with lush soundscapes. waiter: Perhaps something from our goa lite menu? That's what this is. Waitaminit...are these old tracks that you are just releasing? That would put some context on some things. Now let me be clear, it's not bad. It's not full on remixes of his past music so we haven't fallen into that fiery pit of hell. But it's full-on with the hint of goa. A taste. A soucon. We are nowhere near the quality of his past compositions. So if he is making the move to melodic trance or a different avenue of music who the hell am I to say he shouldn't do that. This just caught me off guard. This reminded me of the direction that Afgin moved toward with the EP's he released after his Suntrip album. Psyshop Mdk
  6. Artist: CoaGoa Title: Transcendental Consciousness EP Label: Timewarp Records Date: July, 2014 1. Everything Is Conscious 2. Transcendental Consciousness (Tribute to Nova Fractal) 3. Frozen Love "If you have a golf ball sized consciousness, when you read a book you'll have a golf ball sized understanding. When you look out a golf ball sized awareness. And when you wake up in the morning a golf ball sized wakefullness." Not to mention a sh*tload of golf balls. Coagoa is Alexandar Popovic and this is his debut ep. The first track is smooth and subtle. The title track is more aggressive yet equally layered. Very tasty. The last track...hmmm. For those of you who doubt that inspiration could come from a visit to a sperm back I give you...Frozen Love! That title brings to mind hair metal power ballads and the mother daughter teams that throw their panties on stage. Cheesy right? And make no mistake the cheesy title is followed by cheesy and cliched downtempo music. Aside from the last track this is a fairly good ep. The goa is multi layered warmth, floating and melodic. It sounds great thanks to the production as well as the mastering by Deimos. These days it's not enough to just make goa trance. You have to also be quite a good artist in other aspects which Alexandar did with he being the one behind the attractive cover art. Beatport Mdk
