  1. Release notes: From the magical Island of Ireland. released February 11, 2020 Half-price. https://glaiverecords.bandcamp.com/album/circle-of-protection-music-from-ireland 1. Wizards From All The Coasts 06:46 2. Spellcasted [KILLED THE ACCURSED] 06:29 3. Through The Devil [FIRE MIX] 07:25 4. And Over And Beyond The Boarder 06:57 5. They Gave Us Three Sevens 07:02 6. A Valhalla [THE SKY KINGDOM] 06:47 7. So Druids Regathered Once More 06:56 8. To Say That Mars Is A Dead Planet 07:36 [Review in progress] Introduction So it´s that time of the year, when I thought Filipe had stopped producing goa, since all other label accounts were closed down. And I happened to stumble upon his new goa projects/bandcamp page. It was quite well hidden, with album/EP descriptions not mentioning anything at all about goa trance. Disguised as beeing a bandcamp focused on chiptunes, there was some of that as well, but the majority was in fact goa trance. Sometimes hidden under such imaginative descriptions such as "Gregorian Portuguese Chants". But the seeker of lost light shall find, and he shall be plentifully rewarded! And I was very surprised with the variation on offer this time around, there is a lot of classic goa stuff in the Lost Buddha/Amithaba vein, in all but the artist names/track names/artwork at times. So when chipping of the veneer we are greated by some very nice classic sounding Goa. There are some releases though which are more obviously goa as well, with the Egyptian themed Ramose project beeing the prime example. As a consequnce of the hidden nature of this new labels output, most of it is not on discogs yet, making it a bit more time consuming to write the reviews. The styles on offer range between down tempo/breakbeat goa, and playful hyper-oriental Nitzho-goa, to the more classic variety of the Lost Buddha/Amithaba styles. There was some down tempo oriental chiptune goa as well. But I'm not sure psynews is ready for chiptune goa just yet? So I'll be concentrating my effort on the more purely goaish releases of the bunch. This release in particular stands out. As it sounds a lot like the first two Amithaba Buddha albums. Very classic and old school sounding. Of course today in 2020, it's more reminiscent of the first wave of Neo-goa than of the actual old school Goa Trance from the 90's. With the first wave of Neo-goa, from the mid 2000's now beeing old school in itself. Could this be an actual Amithaba Buddha album released under a false guise for whatever obscure reason? Dunno, but it's intriguing to think about. And who doesn't love some good ole fakenews/conspiracy theories in this day and age? At the end of the day who gives a f**k, it sounds epic, and it's some of the best Goa I've heard this year. Heck even Donnie Trump would be dancing to this, in the white house lawn with a lightshow provided by some classified Pentagon project. I can assure anyone who is a fan of the Lost Buddha and Amithaba Buddha styles, that this is the best of that flavour that has been released in a while. As I personally think that the Angels Trumpets album by Amithaba Buddha in 2015, wasn't as good as the previous two albums. It was a bit too hectic for my taste. And the Origins album released in 2017, didn't manage to draw me in either. The album begins with the track Wizards From All The Coasts, which is a brainmeltingly good Goa stormer, it has those simple but joyful melodies characteristic of early Mystica. Accompanied by some viciously entrancing TB-303 barking, I love it when the main melodies are played by the TB-303 as well, as is done very well in this track. It's a tried-and-tested method of bringing joy into peoples lives. As there is no other synthesizer which more effectively massages and stimulates just the right places in the brain, resulting in pure euphoric sensations for the listener. As humans have a very special connection to the TB-303's frequencies, which is not yet fully understood by the scientific community on planet earth. Inhabitants of other planetary systems have been practicing TB-303 therapy for gazillions of years already though, so no worries! It's safe, it's effective, and you neeeeed it. As we are getting warmed up by this faboulous track, let's dive into the next one. The second track Spellcasted [KILLED THE ACCURSED picks up the speed from where the previous track left off. It's an euphoric number, a nostalgic Goa track full of Yoga induced wisdom and warm hypnotic melodies, which sound like something straight out of the Lost Buddha-Untold Stories playbook. And that is just what the doctor prescribed, so gimme the full dose. The track has a catharsis-inducing barrage of melodic and trippy layers thrown at you, and it never drops the pace. So you get a sensational rush, increasing the activity of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, sending your brain into a state of total bliss. The track is full to the brim with distorted layers of ornamental oriental melodies, which have a very sweet singing quality to them. The background is full of intriguing soundscapes of the more mind-altering variant. This prepares us for our next step of the journey. Namely, Through The Devil [FIRE MIX], which starts with a burning 303 and some trippy oriental soundcapes, this sounds very different and original. There are some really clever tricks with how the background melodies are shaped/filtered, it's like a semi-camouflaged approach. The melodic landscape is very dimensional and stimulating, hallucinatory would be an apt description. There are these crying leads as well repeating their short hooks, so they get etched in your mind like a mantra. Very catchy indeed, this is how I would have imagined that a follow up to Untold Stories would have sounded like. The seriousness of the themes, and I'm talking about the musical themes not of the track names or album artwork, as I think they have nothing to do with these tracks. The contemplative modes on offer and the relentless approach to layers and progress in the tracks. A peculiar sense for melodies and storytelling is presented, and I definitely think that this should have been on a real CD and on Spotify, oh well let's head over to the next Goa beach party anthem. Which is And Over And Beyond The Boarder, this track begins quickly after a short intro. It has these wavy melodies that I love in the background, and lot's of zick zack patterns. It's similar to Islamic geometric patterns but in soundform. Perhaps alluring to some entheogenic visions previously experienced, or some state of mind reached during Yoga. These type of melodies and way of shaping sounds are found in the Lost Buddha Track-Lost In Paradise as well to some extent, but not as developed as those we are exposed to here. Many years have passed since the Untold Stories era of course, so experience and time by all means can have this transformative effect on the creative capabilites as well. Since I don't know exactly when this album was composed, I could of course be way of with my speculations. Since there isn't much information available, and the album isn't added to discogs yet. The only real piece of information we have are the relase notes found on bandcamp: which state that it was released on February 11, 2020. And with those reflections sorted, our path to enlightenment continues. Our next contender is They Gave Us Three Sevens. The track A Valhalla, is wasting no time in getting things started. A short intro is constructed by means of gradually introducing different layers. After a brief playing around with some ergot derivative psychedelic sound effects, we are introduced to the hallmark Goa leads found on Amithaba Buddhas tunes, as well as in the Lost Buddha tracks. There is a steady stream of TB-303 patterns, most likely AudioRealism Bassline or any other of the popular 303 clones around. Spiralling and chirping synthesizer sounds, coupled with some crying and soaring leads which are sure to melt the heart of any fan of the hyper melodic variety of Neo-Goa. The melodic hooks on offer are brilliant, it's very reminiscent of Mysteries of The Women, in its tonal and acidic approach. Towards the latter half of the song, intense spiraled melodies are introduced, and even some shimmering cosmic sounding layers and arp lines. Similar to Ra or Dimension 5. A very surprising and elegant ending to this track. Excellent track which I rate highly, I don't use grading metrics, just take my word for it, it's really good. None of those grading systems are needed, this isn't amazon or ebay, nor is it a school handing out grades and diplomas. Besides the student on this album was expelled way too many times already from the Psynews Academy, so grades won't help much. Here we have So Druids Regathered Once More The final track is To Say That Mars Is A Dead Planet Conclusion: [in progress/placeholder] Upon doing some research, I have found what appears to be the same tracks as on this album, released in 2019 on an album called Devilish on the label Acid Chemical Plant Records Reborn, with slightly different/altered track names and track order. https://www.discogs.com/Circle-Of-Protection-Devilish/release/13892884 Tracklist 1-Devilish 7:25 2-Under Verge 6:57 3-Druid 6:56 4-Valhalla 6:47 5-Wizards Of The Coast 6:46 6-Green Mars 7:36 7-Trinity Seven 7:02 8-Spellcaster 6:29 Compared with the reviewed 2020 album in question: 1. Wizards From All The Coasts 06:46 2. Spellcasted [KILLED THE ACCURSED] 06:29 3. Through The Devil [FIRE MIX] 07:25 4. And Over And Beyond The Boarder 06:57 5. They Gave Us Three Sevens 07:02 6. A Valhalla [THE SKY KINGDOM] 06:47 7. So Druids Regathered Once More 06:56 8. To Say That Mars Is A Dead Planet 07:36 While listening and comparing, the composition seems to be the same, and the tracks lenghts are identical. I need to listen and compare more carefully to see if the tracks are identical, or if any alterations/improvements have been made in the actual compositions and the mastering. Which underscores the difficulty in really knowing when this artists releases actually were composed/released. Who knows if it might have been released previously under even more aliases? *Update* And upon digging some more, most of the tracks have also been released on EP's, between 2017 and 2018. So they might have been composed who knows when. https://www.discogs.com/artist/5828150-Circle-Of-Protection In that sense, not much has changed since the two Untold Stories albums, which also contained a selection of tracks from different years. Still, this doesn't detract from the fact that this is an awesome piece of work. It's the best and probably only way to get these tracks today. I think there are two reasons for the tracks on here beeing repackaged, one beeing to improve the track order/flow and making the artwork and track names fit better. Despite the tracks to my ears sounding more like something evocative of the eastern hemispere of themes found in the Amithaba Buddha and Lost Buddha world building, there are samples in each track referencing the track names and or druid/celtic stuff. So there is some type of theme going on in that world. In one track we have a sample of what sounds like either Gandalf or Miraculix saying something. Perhaps it's best understood as a flux of idea worlds flowing together, similar to those one might experience during an altered state of mind. In such an imaginative world, not everything abide to the same set of rules as in the normal unaltered reality. And one might experience a mishmash of religious/mythological themes. Another thing I have been reflecting upon, is if the at times camouflaged nature of some of the releases on bandcamp, is due to a game of cat and mouse between the artist and the p2p groups. Like a way to mess with them for a bit, making them have to work a bit to get their heads around where to find the music and what to make of it. If there isn't a clear item description of the genre of the music, the release groups will have to be quite dedicated in order to find their loot.

Sky Merge 06:33 8. Hellenic 07:03 https://filipesantos.bandcamp.com/album/secret [Placeholder/review in progress] As I stumbled upon the Athenaia project while listening to the compilation Spirit Of Rajasthani released back in 2016 on Good Dance Recordings, with its standout track Parthenon. I was curious to discover this Athenaia album. Which was released on another Filipe Santos imprint, Goa '96 Records. Stylewise this album is more grounded in the classical Goa style, it has no particular Nitzhonot influences, besides some kinda huge and epic Nitzho-sounding kick drums in the track "Our Sentinels Are Aware" and contain no traces of the style found in the Pandemonium project. In comparison to the Bunraku³ ‎– Arabian Nights album, also released in 2017, (Also reviewed by me) which carried a lot of the humorous/caricaturistic elements from the Pandemonium style. This album on the other hand, sounds as something that could've been released on the Metapsychic Records imprint, had it not been closed down so early. Metapsychic Records did of course release some Nitzho-goa as well, with the early Pandemonium stuff. But this album sounds a whole lot more like what I would've expected from the Metapsychic main Goa catalog stylewise. And thematically, with a concept steeped in ancient Greek mythology, as well as containing references to the ancient Greek religious movement Orphism. The music on this album is very nostalgic, euphoric and dramatic, which of course is very fitting to the thematic concept The album starts of strong with the track Orphic Mysteries, which begins with some majestic choir pads, setting the tone for this oriental trip. The track has some mesmerizing pads throughout the track, which convey the sensation of a since long forgotten archaic mysticism. The melodic content sounds very glimmery and summery, full of catharsis. The melodies and pads takes us on a voyage into the mythical ancient world of Hellas. A world full of divine intervention, where foresight is delivered by blessed oracles and wise sages. We are now in the world of Ilion and Achilles, were anything is possible and everything feels epic! The storytelling aspect is sure to make you feel like you are in another time, witnessing the unreal splendor of white marble temples, decorated with richly colored, ornate psychedelic patterns. And temples full to the brim with shining golden statues, curious Antikythera mechanism type artifacts and eternal fires burning in the shrines. The kick drum work is engaging and the track never loses momentum, there aren't any weak segments or fillers. The track does what needs to be done, to keep everyone on the dancefloor, a very good track indeed. The second track in the playlist is none other than the title track Secret, which manages to sound even more inspired and blissfully euphoric, the summery feelings are prevalent. The pads are magnificent, and feel aptly enigmatic, conveying very well the sense of ancient grandeur. We are also introduced to a very sweet flute pad, which plays a memorable lead melody. Contrasting greatly to the distorted acidic workout of the 303 patterns, which it is juxtaposed against. The tempo and drive is very good for dancing, with a kickdrum reminiscent of classic Israeli Mystica, which plays the occasional double steps to keep it playful. Highly like this track, I would rate it a notch above Orphic Mysteries, which I also enjoyed a lot. I like how the focus here is on the melodies and 303, and the main drum section, not very much percussive elements. It's all about melodies, atmosphere and a relentless drive. Next up in the temple playlist comes the ominously named track War Dance. If there is a war coming, make sure to bring your ageless aegis! And put on some winged dancing shoes of hermes.

  3. Tracklist 1J'uahb Kuha'T 9:41 2Heif8:01 [Review in progress] Another day, means another interesting release/project from the man with One Thousand and One Aliases. This EP is da bomb, It's like a hybrid of the Pandemonium-A Mad Scientist Night EP, and the Bunraku³ ‎– Arabian Nights Album. Needless to say, it is VERY very veeery oriental and cartoony. It's as if Filipe channeled Alladin or Ali Baba, I have no clue where he gets all of these oriental melodies from. But I won't complain, they are entertaining, and very animated. Unfortunately as per usual, this isn't available anywere that I could see, except on youtube. Which of course as we all know by now, defies all logic. But oh well, who needs logic, when we have bunch of funny oriental Nitzhogoa tracks to dance to? The album artwork alone puts a smile on my face from one ear to another, what was the thought process behind it? Who knows, its mildly bizarre, funny and cute, all at the same time, the style of the cover is perhaps best described as beeing manga and Disney inspired, disney-goa? Frozen meets Egyptian goa themes. It reminds me of the video game Metal Slug, which had some really cool egyptian themed levels with mummies. There is like a creative overload both in the music and in the ideas that the artist wanted to convey via the cover artwork. The artwork is a collage of ideas really, and a collage of different mismatching styles. But it's original and I like the emoji style, the running wrapped mummy and the cow, I'll give them credit for that. It's a bit like those collages that kids make sometimes on the lid of the refrigerator, with some stories told with different stickers. The label name under which this EP was released under is also bizzare/funny. Jehovah Tsidkenu Records, let that sink in for a while. It's so out there, that I'm not even sure what to add more than that It's humourous to the max. The cover artwork features The Annoying Rajah face silhouette, with sunglasses, which is used as a logo on most of the releases under this moniker. It could be that the album cover makes reference to the family life of the artist. As there are babies, and a couple on it. Who knows perhaps the album artwork was a collaborative family effort?

  6. Tracklist: 1-Thonis Heracleion [Stop Daydreaming] 2-Abu Qir Bay [And Fight For Your Life] https://filipesantos.bandcamp.com/album/thonis-heracleion-ep Release notes: An album brought by Filipe Luis Revelator Dos Santos, dedicated to people that are constantly daydreaming and that are constantly fantasizing in order to escape one's troubles in Life. He wishes that his people might wake up someday, so they can realize the truth, because, in order to face Life, one must stand up and be strong to face its own troubles so that the obstacles in thy hearts could be overcome and healed. So, he wishes nothing more than happiness and prosperity for those that are lost, for he wants them to be found. Pray to God. Artist signature. With love, Filipe. credits released January 17, 2020 [Placeholder/Review in progress] Introduction Conclusion

  8. Tracklist Space Sinbad - Eyes Of Osiris 6:37 Lost Buddha - Morro Jable 6:52 Space Sinbad - Heart Of Kali 6:18 Ketoret - Conceived 6:33 Chynacid - Tofu 6:41 Lost Buddha - Ice Of Ancients 7:29 Ketoret - Missionary 6:55 Lost Buddha - Trust In God 6:32 Chynacid - Tianlong 7:19 Oh so what's this? Yet another compilation of Filipe Santos goa? Well there's more were this one came from. The era between 2010 and 2020 seem to have been his most productive, as I can't quite comprehend the full scope of his releases on discogs. Patience rewards the seeker though and there is plenty to sift through. Although the task at hand, can sometimes be quite challenging due to all official distribution channels/label pages having been closed down. And also overwhelming because of the sheer amount of tracks released. Youtube beeing a last bastion of hope, for the seekers of lost enlightenment. The search can be very rewarding for the persistent soul who dares to go down into the abyss of 20000 or so released tracks on his various labels. Not that it's a correct or official number, but it certainly is a lot. I am however not even able to find everything I would like to review from the Good Dance Recordings imprint alone. So if anyone knows who to contact to get access to some review material, I would be more than happy to pay up. With physical copies, one would often borrow a CD/Vinyl for review purposes, not sure how that would work with digital releases lol. The compilation at hand for todays attempt at a review is a good starting point for anyone curious about this relatively short lived label God Dance Recordings. This compilation was however a re-release, as it was first released in 2013 on the one-off label Godance Recordings. *review in progress* check back later The compilation starts off with Space Simbad-Eyes of Osiris, which is really good. It sounds very similar in style and tone to Acid Pyramidian under Filipe's Sleeping Buddha moniker. Both of these tracks has a more cosmic and trippy style compared to the majority of this artists works. Which works to great effect since it breaks up the expectations, and keeps things fresh.
  9. Tracklist 1–Athenaia - Parthenon 6:55 2–Chynacid - Tai Chi 6:23 3–Tarot - La Fortuna 7:05 4–Gankyil - Wheel Of Joy 6:50 5–Washi - Tanakh 6:40 6–Realm Nine - Around The Sun 6:22 7–Chynacid - Daoshi 6:58 8–Mana Source - Querubim 6:38 9–Ba'al - Irreligion 7:15 [Review in progress] I didn't find this one reviewed here yet, so here it goes. Another compilation with selected tracks from Filipe Santos various monikers. It's old school sounding goa, of the more oriental tonal variety. I would dare to say however, that in the old school era proper, there weren't really anything as oriental sounding as some of Filipe's works. So by saying that it sounds old school, it's on a superficial level. It has an old school aura, but with a completely different approach to melodies. Filipe managed to develop a distinct hyper-oriental style, which sounds more authentically oriental than a lot of the tracks from the old school era. And much of that has to do with how his melodies are programmed and sometimes recorded in real-time. There is a particular sense of bending the notes and utilizing the oriental scales/modes, which make it sound more inspired by real oriental music, it has this almost folkloric quality at times. I haven't listened in-depth to all tracks yet, as the first track Athenaia - Parthenon got stuck on repeat here, after a brief skip through of the other tracks. Parthenon is a great start to this compilation, it's a frenetic track, but still manages to feel fresh and harmonious. It's imbued with light and hypnotic background layers. Spiralling highly pitched ornamental melodies, twisting and turning taking your mind on a spiritual path, envisioning a temple era full of enlightened and inspired ideas such as metaphysics. The pads are enchanting, and are the true hooks of this tune. According to discogs there was an album released in 2017 under the Athenaia artist name called Athenaia ‎– Secret, which I'm curious to listen to and review. If the tracks on that album sound anything like Parthenon, then it's very promising indeed. Update, here is my review of that album: There seems to be plenty of inspiration drawn from the various religious and occult idea worlds of this planet. And in that sense it's like a compilation with tracks covering different aspects of ethno-religious themes. With everything from esotheric new age concepts such as Tarot one end, and jewish religion on the other with one track name referencing the Jewish bible Tanakh, and another referring to the Cherubim. While other tracks seem to draw inspiration from the far east, with its Tai chi martial art/philosophy. The cover art and compilation name, seems to be more inspired by the Dharmic religions or Indian culture. So the sources of inspiration are wide and ecclectic in its combination and final implementation, which adds to the originality. Perhaps reflecting a personal interest/curiousity of the composer into these wide-ranging subjects.
  10. Tracklist 1-Magic Lamp 7:43 2-Ja'far 6:28 3-Camel Ride 6:17 4-Dark Pyramids 6:39 5-Maharaja 7:06 6-Arabian Nights 6:50 [Placeholder/review in progress] I noticed that this album was missing here. I'm gonna write more in-depth later about each track. I would greatly appreciate and welcome other reviews of this as well. As I think it's a bit of a lost gem? I haven't really seen or heard much talk about it. I think it could be some of Filipes best work to date, according to my preferences. According to discogs, the Bunraku³ with the added cubic designation differs from the tracks released under the "regular" Bunraku project. "The project is heavily based on Japanese culture. In Bunraku³ the project is introduced to the middle eastern world." It's an elaborate piece of work with a strong oriental motif, running through the entirety of the album. The concept is really imaginative, it's in the style of Lost Buddha, but way more arabic and with a touch of humour. Think egyptian sand dunes, and a world of magic pyramids, combined with the storytelling tradition of One Thousand and One Nights. It's a perfect album to listen to while talking a sunny spring or summer walk. As it will teleport you to the sacred lands of the pharaohs, and you will venture through all kinds of enigmatic pyramidal riddles! Bring your scarab amulets, and some incense. So that you're fully prepared for the ancient rites, spells and dazzling arabic stories awaiting you. Who knows you might even stumble upon a golden lamp, complete with a wish-granting genie inside.
  11. Tracklist 1 Sigma 5 6:37 2 Crystal Core 6:35 3 Federal Space 7:50 4 Apraxxis 6:40 5 Omikron 7:02 6 Highlander 6:50 [Review in progress] This right here is one amazing and totally neglected goa trance album from 2016. Just take a listen to these two tracks, which I think are the highlights: Realm Nine - Apraxxis Realm Nine-Omikron Browsing youtube for all the music Lost Buddha managed to release during the last decade, has been quite a journey. And I'm not even sure if everything is uploaded on youtube. The sheer amount of albums, compilations, EP's he released during the last ten years is absolutely staggering. Just looking beyond all the internet drama, and focusing on what this forum is all about, namely the music. I can tell that there has been some kind of creative overload and for that I am grateful. It's as if Lost Buddhas brain went into hyper-drive and he made as many songs as one would expect someone to make in a lifetime, during a couple of years. It has been quiet regarding new releases from Lost Buddha lately, so perhaps he got a goa trance overdose and had to take a break, or suffered a mental breakdown from the exhaustion. This album has an overall much more smooth acidic goa trance sound than we are used to with Filipe, The sound image is more crisp as well. The cover artwork by deviantart member VickyM72 is really clean. And the chromed 3D-render goes well with the silvery liquid acid lines of the music. To me the music here at times sounds a bit like the Tandu-Multimoods album from 1997, but way more oriental. Favourite tracks so far: Apraxxis, Omikron and Federal Space. There was an extended edition of this album released as well which I haven't listened to yet. Which included 4 extra tracks: https://www.discogs.com/Realm-Nine-Realm-Nine-Extended-Edition/release/9152173

At first glance it seems to be a standard compilation featuring various artists, but on a closer inspection it seems to be only one artist present. Namely Filipe Santos under his various aliases. So this is basically more of an artist album/best of. The only track that slightly deviates from this is: Medusis-Aghast, which according to discogs was a collaborative effort between Filipe and Christina, which I would assume is/was a girlfriend? I really like the artwork and the font design it's reminiscent of how the Tantrance compilations used to look. Anyone better than me at reviews are welcome to contribute. I'll try to write something more in-depth later, but I just noticed that this compilation was missing here. If anybody manages to get a hold of the compilation that is. As these aren't available anymore from what I can tell online. I think some if not all tracks are available on youtube, so that's an option for anyone interested in listening or reviewing the compilation. Räma-Night Prism is certainly the standout track of the bunch. Räma-Karisma is a good track as well, but it was featured already on the comilation Protozoa, way back in 2010.
  13. Psyramid EP by Amithaba Buddha first released in Phototropic Records in 2008 is now available as a digital release with fresh mastering . https://submoonrecords.bandcamp.com/album/psyramid-ep-remastered
  14. Happy 2013 everybody. The so much expected 3rd album is in the works and plans are it to be the so much requested (even by some members of this forum) Downtempo / Ambient album. If any labels interested in , please contact me. Nevertheless the album will be made and wish you all a good day / night. https://www.facebook.com/amithababuddha
