One of the best things about being a Goa fan today is how many old, obscure, and lost tracks (along with other documents of the scene) are now coming to light. Everyone can find out as much about the scene's history as they want to, and I encourage doing so! But in order for that history to have an impact, it has to be studied and applied. I'm not someone who believes that the past was always better, but there's always something to be learned from the past, and also from other, parallel developments happening contemporary to your own scene. In that spirit, here's a few recommendations for artists and DJs looking to broaden and deepen their musical understanding. Feel free to add your own. http://www.discogs.com/groups/topic/372528 Some tracks played by DJ Laurent in the 80s/early 90s that led to the creation of Goa trance.
