  1. Artist: Ohm Mind Title: Birds Will Go To Heaven Label: Neogoa Records Date: October, 2015 Angkor Thom Unleash The Ohm Jungle Out Of Galaxy Doors Of Imagination Singing Owls Ultimate State Of Consciousness Cosmic Trance Birds Will Go To Heaven Ugh...still working the bugs out of my Spock disapproval algorithm. As of right now he can be slightly...heavy handed. Looks like it's back to radio shack. Even though the bugs need to be worked out he mirrors my feelings to a lesser extent. Of course I don't want to smash my computer. Counterproductive, expensive, and it doesn't solve anything. The simple solution is to say that I find this boring and choose not to listen. This is the debut album of Belgian Jeremy Cambon and I feel he has underwhelmed me. Perhaps it's his choice of sounds or the quality of production, but this release does not grab me. Decent, but not something I would actively reach for. There were some moments where I was intrigued, but they were immediately followed up by uninteresting melodies. I consistently felt like the tracks dragged on with no fruitful conclusion. Thin sounding without a lot of power. Based on the thread in the Artist News and Label Announcements I shall be in the minority. That's ok, I don't mind going my own way. The artwork is beautiful and was done by Richpa while the mastering by Deimos so it's got that going for it. Probably with time his production will evolve and improve, but right now this album doesn't hold up to other releases even within the Neogoa catalog. Free at Ektoplazm
  2. Artist: Denshi Danshi Title: Fluid Dynamics Label: Suntrip Records Date: October, 2015 1. The Dancing Shiva 2. Mariposa Live Remix 3. Fluid Dynamics 4. Feed the Mugwumps 5. Vanaspati 6. Make Make 7. A Fast Trip Straight Down The Ladder 8. Mars Base Alpha 9. Tsuki 10. Maelstrom 11. Kraft Karamel Bonus Tracks: Temple of Heaven Cow's Blues Live Remix Ugh...so much music to listen to and so many reviews to write. This is fast becoming an all encompassing chore. "Mike I need you to clean the bathrooms today!" "Sorry babe I've got some work to do." Whew. Now that's a chore. A four year old who ain't potty trained and a six year old with terrible aim and that's a chore I'm looking to avoid. All right...let's see what we've got here...*swipes right to left on phone* No, no, no...hold up now, what's this? Denshi Danshi? Pffft...what a stupid name. And that artwork...look I know it can't always be fractals and dancing Shivas, but it's so...plain. Well, it's either this or the wrong end of a toilet brush. Wow. Double wow. Joske wasn't just hyping the sh*t out of this to boost sales. My man was speaking the gospel! The names behind this project are Chistophe Frere and Said Archer, artists from back in the day who never put out a proper album, but made some compilation appearances with tracks like Cow's Blues, Mariposa, and Feed the Mugwumps. Right from the first track you can tell it's going to be an acidic roller coaster ride. The Dancing Shiva bounces with crackling energy and groove while on the live remix of Mariposa they show that Seb isn't the only guy able to wreck a 303. Rising, rising and then unleashing. It's a bubbling sizzler. The title track is a monster that was made a few months ago just for this album. Pure and simple old school, in your face acidic goa trance. Now if you're anything like me you're asking yourself what the f*ck is a Mugwump? I thought it was a derogatory term for dwarf like Oompa Loompa, but it actually means an aloof or independent person. This is a remastered version and for those like myself who have never heard it a true treat. It's all over the place with chaotic acidic tribal wizardry. Vanaspati is ok, but doesn't shine like the previous tracks. Something had to follow the Mugwumps and unfortunately it was that one. Make Make and that sneaky lead had me dancing like no one was watching. It kept changing and adding new melodies, but kept it's consistent level of awesomeness. A Fast Trip also has that tribal feel, but only just cause you might miss it with the growly leads. The climax is a whole lot of twirling fun. Mars Base Alpha slows it down slightly with some shimmery sci-fi atmosphere and the climax of Tsuki is a mass of leads and 303 madness. Maelstrom is an accurate track name that keeps building until it erupts in a hugely acidic climax. Blistering. Closing things out is Kraft Karamel a downtempo track that descends from space and allows me to comprehend all that I have been deluged with. A welcome conclusion. Well, almost. There are two bonus tracks if you order from the Suntrip shop. Temple of Heaven can be found on Psychic Deli's Future Psychedelia and fits well on this album. Same type of acid chaos. Cow's Blues has a sound that really does sound like a cow mooing. Slower, but equally psychedelic. Are new artists making goa trance anymore? Seriously, the old timers are back in a big way showing the whippersnappers how it was and is to be done. Look I'm sorry I made fun of your name. You make music like this and call yourself psychedelic toilet brush and I'm going to buy it. It's old school all the way with a heaping helping of acidic power. You can get it at the regular shops of course, but as I mentioned if you order from Suntrip you get those two bonus tracks and you help out a label that's been delivering the goods since Katrina tried to swallow the Big Easy. It's a no brainer and if you call yourself a goa fan...essential. F*ck it. Get down Mugwumps! Suntrip Psyshop Beatspace
  3. Artist: Sibling Title: Of Earth Ep Label: Self-Released Date: October, 2015 1 - Verde Ghosts (125 BPM) 2 - Ormus (127 BPM) 3 - Deadly Spawn (92 BPM) 4 - Bloodlines (106 BPM) 5 - Above My Brain (120 BPM) 6 - Slaves (112 BPM) "What the hell is that?" Has the frenzied pace of life got you down and you just can't keep up? Feel like you're always in a hurry, but not getting anywhere? Well have I got just the thing for you! Trent Thomas from Arizona is back and has improved everything but his cover art from his first Ep! Don't uh, really know what...what happened there. As labelled by Ektoplazm this bass music is some slow motion swampy quicksand. You can try to resume your high speed machinations, but rest assured you will only dig yourself deeper. Eerie melodies abound and even though the bpm's are listed at above one hundred, they feel like half that. Tribal percussion, ancient mystical ritualistic sacrifice, and bass heavy hallucinations await. This music is excellent at generating an atmosphere of foresty dread helped along by whatever he does to make the samples seemingly come from the other side. Impending doom is on it's way and the agonizingly slow pace makes it much more terrifying. And there's nothing you can do to stop it. Free at Ektoplazm
  4. Artist: Various Title: Goa Trance Legacy Label: Spacedock Records Date: October, 2015 1. Digicult & U-Recken - Into The Heartland (Astral Projection Remix) 2. Power Source - Sparks (Remix) 3. Goasia - Haunted 4. Filteria - Memory Lane (Future Live Remix) 5. M-Run - Last Survivor 6. Omnivox - I Am The Storm 7. Prana - Boundless (ManMadeMan Remix) 8. Psychowave - Catch The Rabbit 9. Shakta - Amber Mantra This was the first compilation from upstart Spacedock Records and like the second one in the series it brought together a great line up. There are no unknowns here. Just veterans of the scene with some old schoolers represented. Right off the bat we get yet another Astral Projection Remix that was also featured on the Digicult album Soul Samadhi. It's really quintessential Astral isn't it? With it's shiny layers and pounding beat. Maybe one day when my kids have put me in a nursing home they'll release some new material. But probably another ep of remixes as a final f*ck you before I die. Power Source is back with a remix of a track that was found on an ep they released back in 2011. Never heard it because I never thought Power Source was that good anyway. Sure Goaway is great as is Memory Bubbles and I'll give you Granada...but that's it! On to the track, they have a sound in there that sounds like an alarm went off in a Tesco when you tried to walk out without paying for your girl's maxi pads because you're embarrassed. Be a man. They know it's not for you. Is it buttercup? It's a positive, shiny track that's a little too full-on. Like if Erasure made goa. Goasia is one of those projects that you either love or you think they're cheese merchants. I think they're great. Sure they're a little quirky, but so is Uncle Ted. Just don't sit on his lap at Thanksgiving. And this track is quirky, but fun. I like that it keeps changing, always staying very lively. Not bad, if a little long. Filteria needs no introduction and he's earned his bones with four great albums, but I've never heard this track. Sounds very Heliopolis. There are several breaks so there's ample time to reorganize. Pretty good. M-run authored one of my favorite goa albums in Some Run Just For Fun, and with this long beast he gets crazy. It's fast paced, powerful and that lead is like dancing on the sun. Relentlessly psychedelic. Great track. Fragments of Evolution (also released on Spacedock) was a melodic and powerful tour de force and this track is no different. Plenty of motion and leads that leave char marks. The ManMadeMan remix of Prana's Boundless is one of the most psychedelic tracks I've ever heard. All power and bubbly liquid it's super intense and futuristic. Golden! Psychowave is heard from much (still haven't listened to his album yet), but the stuff I have heard was really good. Here he slays with writhing 303's and adds an operatic female voice. Gives it a layer of eerie above the power. Gets a little weird near the end and the strings don't quite fit. Other than that it's pretty great. Amber Mantra by Shakta was pretty obscure until Suntip put it on his release. Great old school track that hasn't lost any steam. Way to go Spacedock, you pretty much nailed it with this one. Spacedock Records Bandcamp
  5. Artist: Various Title: The Mystery of Crystal Worlds Prologue Label: Global Sect Music Date: October, 2015 1. Psy-H Project - Krishna or Maya 2. Morphic Resonance - Outro (Extended Version) 3. Liquid Flow - Event Horizon 4. Celestial Intelligence - Hidden Valley 5. Artifact303 - Delirium (Downward Spiral) Gettin' all hot and bothered over here! Like all loyal goa heads I was transfixed when the latest compilation from Global Sect Music was first announced and promptly pre-ordered 2 copies. Like...zero waiting. The track list alone demanded that I do nothing less. Having already released the delicious Space of Power and debut album Dance of Distant Worlds from dark goa producer Psy-H Project it was a foregone conclusion that their 3-CD compilation was going to be a must have. The previews showcased super sounds with some fantastic artwork as they decided to go all out. Not only can you order the album (only goa trance released that was apparently based on a poem), but they're offering t-shirts, posters, backdrops...the whole 9. I was ready to throw my money at them (and I eventually did), but at the time of this writing we had to wait for it to be released. To tide you over they offer a digital five track taste of what's to come. A prologue if you will. And like the edges of my home made brownies it's f*cking awesome. The aforementioned Psy-H blows the doors off your Renault with a 15 minute bomb of spiritual napalm. Mystic goa trance at the highest state of enlightenment. Morphic Resonance (debut album just released as if you didn't know) combines goa trance with post apocalyptic atmosphere in a downtempo slog. Lush and powerful it's like Frontline Assembly and Downward Spiral NIN joined forces in an unstoppable Voltron of goa trance. Do you, ah even know what a Voltron is? The measured journey continues with Liquid Flow that just has me shaking my head. This is a prologue? Sinister and bubbly. Man this is good. Celestial Intelligence picks up the pace and delivers an entrancing, bouncing track while Artifact303 resurfaces to close out this gift with a storming breakbeat track. This was a free EP when you pre-ordered the Mystery of Crystal Worlds, but unfortunately that ship has sailed. Some might have a problem with forking over 10E for 5 tracks, but the first three tracks are so good that I felt it was worth it. I feel like I'm preaching to the choir here, but you guys probably already have this anyway. Highly recommended! Global Sect Bandcamp
  6. Artist: Various Title: Avant Garden Label: TIP Records Date: October, 2015 1. Avalon & Electric Universe - One Giant Leap 2. Lucas & Laughing Buddha - Revel With The Devil 3. Lucas & Mechanimal - The Impossible (Imaginarium Remix) 4. Tristan & Groove Addict - Feel The Light 5. Circuit Breakers - Rumblicious 6. Martian Arts & Radical Frequencies - 808 Space 7. Psilocybian - Scatterbrain 8. Outside The Universe - Electric Memories 9. Earthling & Ajja - Puddle Jumpers 10. Hypnocoustics & Cosmosis - Dark Matter The way TIP is going is this going to be there next album cover? Sigh. I'm kind of torn on this one. I love (perhaps loved is more accurate) TIP Records even though they've begun to resemble Nano, but man you've got to give me more if you want this relationship to work. Trying to catch lightning in a bottle after the massive goodness that was Tales of Heads (the promo says this is a follow up to God Save the Machine) is proving a wee bit difficult. Lucas brings together a list of the usual suspects in a lineup that is heavy on unrealized potential. There are too many stripped down stretches where the bass line is very prominent and doesn't allow other parts to shine. Gone are the lush details and constantly morphing synth lines we saw on those other two albums. There is nothing that draws me in and therefore I don't feel invested in the tracks. This was the same problem with the Laughing Buddha, Dickster, and Tristan albums. Good parts are there yet they are outweighed by the longer and less imaginative ones. I don't want you to get the impression that this was a bad album because it's not. But when the bar you yourself set so high isn't reached me makey sad face. Plenty of tracks are more than good. 808 Space featuring half of Goasia and the final track pairing Hypnocoustics with Cosmosis were the best tracks for me just to name a couple. Overall the compilation is good and at times great, but certainly a tad disappointing considering what came before it. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's a good album, but fell short of what I was hoping for. Psyshop Beatspace
  7. Artist: JIS (Journey Into Sound) Title: Transdimensional Vision EP Label: Neogoa Date: October, 2015 1. Up There 2. Solar Wind 3. Transdimensional Vision 4. Final Harmony "My God...it's full of stars!" Actually that's a concussion...in A minor I think. JIS is Czellar Gabor an underrated goa producer from the imaginary land of Hungary. Did you catch his debut album Illusions of Reality? If the answer to that question is no then you have some catching up to do. Here, let me help you. I compared his sound to Blue Planet Corporation and I stand by that. He crafts that light melodic goa trance which captivates with its depth. Thanks to the kind folks at Neogoa he presents an EP to continue this trend. Drifting melodies with an undercurrent of liquid goa are on full display as sounds ping off the hull of the spacecraft. His tracks have seamless transitions as old melodies melt into new ones with an atmosphere that is fully cosmic. Trancey, light goa that shouldn't fail to please. Good stuff! Free at Ektoplazm
