  1. Artist: Various Title: Deep Impact Label: Odd Records Date: November, 2005 1. Wrecked Machines - Creep 2. BLT - Anything You Want (Zen Mechanics Remix) 3. Quantic Fusion - Elements 4. Cyrus The Virus - The Prophecy 5. Altom - The Persuaders 6. Alternative Control - Commercial Hit 7. Freaked Frequency - Hippi 8. Suria - MD 64 Beats 9. V-Storm - Survivor Who's ready for some full-on? F*ck yeah Manchester! Anyone? Look I know it's not cool to listen to this type of psytrance. The vast majority of it is formulaic and derivative getting nowhere like a three legged dog. So yeah...not cool. Like bumping some Billy Squier at your kids high school. In a jean jacket. Leaning on a camaro. What a loser. But I have to hop between subgenres lest I get burned out and fed up. For that reason I'm all over the place. Think of me as a teacher. Just...with a lot more F word. The rule for me is to never dismiss anything out of hand as you certainly could miss something. And if you piss on this you'll miss out on some pretty good tracks. Wrecked Machines and the Zen Mechanics Remix straddle the psy/progressive line with good, bouncy tracks with some delicate touches. Great opening salvo which is unfortunately wasted after the Quantic Fusion and Cyrus the Virus diversions that remind me you can put a silk hat on a full on compilation, but yadda yadda yadda. With the soft vocal tacet on The Persuaders I had to grow a Taliban beard and yell at my wife for driving a car just to make sure I was a man. Commercial Hit is just that a commercial euphoric trance track full of melodies and bouncy acid leads. The whole thing is very shiny. And while I felt let down by the Suria track (no depth, just straight ahead), the Freaked Frequency one was varied and the V-Storm closer was a powerful punch in the gut. So it starts out very well, takes a nap in the middle, and then shines a bright, full-on light in your face before rattling some windows. Not bad. But a deep impact...I think you're reaching there.

  2. Artist: Various Title: Back To Galaxy Label: Com.Pact Records Date: November, 2005 1. Astral Projection - Open Society 2. Electro Sun - High Cue 3. Bizzare Contact Vs. Ultravoice - UltraBizzy 4. Space Cat Vs. Onyx - Time Wolers 5. Xerox Vs. Passenger - Science Is God (Ultravoice Rmx) 6. U-Recken - The Other Side (Visual Paradox Edit) 7. Visual Contact - Natural Vibes 8. Ferbie Boys Vs. Bizzare Contact - Superheroes 9. Cosmic Tone - Bite The Moon 10. Wizzy Noise - Tubeless (Lish Rmx) "Oh! That's kind of freaky!" Freaky? I think the word you're searching for here is disappointing. Yeah that's got it. Disappointing. Like a bland meatloaf. Maybe continual disappointment would be even more accurate. A compilation by Com.Pact with all of the usual suspects who create the fluffy full-on that was well underway at the time. I remember when this came out there was a hope that we would actually see a release from the perpetually dormant masters of goa trance. 9 years later and a seemingly endless string of delayed release dates and we still got nothing. Well when I wrote this we had nothing. Now we have remixes and a mix CD of classics that we've all heard a thousand times. Back to this disc, well we go the Open Society track, but that ain't bringing anyone back to the glory days. But hey they put their name on a comp and it generates interest doesn't it? Even if there's the slightest chance they put out some new go we come running like sheep and they know that. If they were actually serious about releasing anything they'd bring something to Suntrip or DAT or other labels who currently specialize in bringing back the old school. The tracks here aren't terrible (actually the Visual Contact mix is particularly disgusting), but they're just more of the same crap we've been force fed by these artists and labels. Unsatisfying and devoid of depth. I understand your desire to remain relevant, but putting your name on tired worn out cheese convinces me you gots nothing. Mdk
