  3. Quick quick, before the end of the year a review of another Suntrip album must be written! Artist: Denshi Danshi Label: Suntrip Records Format: CD and Digital Released: October 19, 2018 Tracklist: 01. Parallel Universe (Original Mix) 08:28 02. Starjna (Original Mix) 08:58 03. Leave The World Behind (Original Mix) 09:55 04. Alpha Omega (Original Mix) 07:59 05. Blink Of An Eye (Original Mix) 07:41 06. Brain Chemistry (Original Mix) 09:31 07. Sukha (Original Mix) 10:12 08. Lemmon 714 (Original Mix) 07:33 09. The Upside Down (Original Mix) 08:37 Lovely title, lovely cover. Denshi Danshi are a duo from France. Earlier they released Fluid Dynamics with some older unreleased tracks. I admit that it didn't grab my attention. I wasn't in for the old sound. But here they deliver a modern goa album filled with some heavy dancing monsters. Parallel Universe uses screeching acid lines surrounded by a lush melodic atmosphere. Very trancy! A bright opener. Starjna starts with a rolling bassline. Without hesitating, goa melodies fly around. All parts of the song flow into one another so organic. Beautiful. Technically this is very strong. But also story-wise, it is very intriguing and pleasant. A bouncy track! Leave The World Behind has a darker forest-like bassline, less my style. The centre of the track involves real psychedelic goa melodies. Besides the gloomier bassline underneath, the song breathes power, light and dancing legs. It gets better and better near the end. Alpha Omega is a multi-layered bomb. Very acidic, uplifting and bubbly. It has it all. Again crisp production. Ace track. And very danceable. A tad darker is Blink Of An Eye. A linear track that goes for the hypnotic feel. Not mesmerizing, but will do the job on the floor. The title track Brain Chemistry has my love. This is pure trance. How the epic break is surrounded by goa elements is superb. The rest of the track oozes speed and energy. Sukha blesses us with a lovely and addictive heavy bassline throughout the whole track. Things get real psychedelic here. I would go completely mental when I would hear this at a party. The track runs for more than 10 minutes and offers a lot in that time. Very exciting and warm! The drop at 6:43 is funny as hell. Lemmon 714 is the easier track here. It's hard to be amongst all those other dancefloor stompers. Make no mistake, this is no resting track. But compared to the rest of the album, this one takes it easy. Not my favorite and not memorable, but good to slow it down a little before the end. The final track The Upside Down is again slower. Denshi Danshi goes for a soft landing. This is a very trancy track that will hypnotise you step by step. Good closing of the album. The way I sense it, there is no red line through this album, story- or structure-wise. That's not a bad thing though. All tracks display a clear beautiful sound and are made strictly for dancing. It's no cult or classic album, but when in need of a good and firm goa shot or some beats for in the car, pick a track and you're good to go. Or play this at home just before going to a party. It will get you all psyched up! I love it! Buy links Suntrip Records Bandcamp Beatport Psyshop

    VA - Shambhala [Global Sect Music]

    Title: Shambhala Label: Global Sect Music Date: October 2018 Format : CD and Digital Tracklist: 1. Fiery Dawn - Magic Mirror 07:31 2. Skarma - Cianendeon ( Median Project Remix ) 08:53 3. Goasia - Hidden Waves 06:46 4. Median Project - Heaven and Earth (Omneon rmx) 08:10 5. Zopmanika - Namaskara Mantra II 08:58 6. Сentavra Project - Shambhala 09:18 7. Median Project - Scarab 07:26 8. Mindsphere - Floating in a Widescreen 12:11 9. Astrancer - Neighbor 10:14 DJ Adept's latest offering from Russia. Here we GO! For those who follow Global Sect music, you know what to expect. And they deliver more than that. Shambala is the bulls eye shot of Goa anno 2018. Opener is a down to mid-tempo track by Fiery Dawn. It has a nice groove, but I find it out of place on a compilation that is otherwise filled with space fuel. But ok, it gets you in the mood slowly. And then we're off for a goa rollercoaster without any disappointing tracks. Really, they are all fantastic! Median Project is back with a stunning remix of Skarma to crack the goa case open. Sweet melodies! Goasia in full force with a rolling bassline without pauses. Omneon takes on a remix of Median Project. Heaven and Earth gets a more acidic and raw facelift. Dance muttha's! I took an aromatic bath while listening to Zopmanika's belter Namaskara Mantra II. Good lord, kamasutra, India, spiritual lifting, and all that! It does it so well. Then we're off to space with Centavra's title track Shambhala. What great mixing in this track. Wonderful goa. Up and down we modulate. This disc is unstoppable, man. Median Project slams with his very own Scarab. This man only produces quality tracks nowadays. Scorching acid and goa synths flowing around from left to right. Amazing. And then, Mindsphere! Mindsphere treats us with a 12min(!) long goa odyssey. The lengths fits the quality. It's so good. A pleasure for the ears. His arpeggio's are back, and they are hot! And look who's back? Astrancer! Astrancer blesses us with the last track. He takes down the energy from the cd a notch, so we can all have a smooth comeback to earth in style. Great melodic easy listener. Conclusion: Don't hesitate to get this one! From start to finish this is what modern Goa is all about. Talented artists with a wealth of inspiration and skills. Goa lives!!

    Va - 303 Syndroms

    Artist: Various Title: 303 Syndrom Label: Mamomam Records Date: 10/10/2018 1. Hypnoxock - Heaven Can't Wait 2. Clementz - Medistajon 3. Median Project -Â Space Monkeys 4. Goad - Entranced 5. Jaraluca - The Ektoplazm 6. Omneon -Â Power of the Ori 7. Artha - Hall-Lux 8. Proxeeus - Suydam 9. Toxeed - Milky Way (Bonus Track) What a month for music. We've been blessed and cursed with a great set of October releases. Blessed because they all rock. Cursed because we must not only buy them all, but find the time to listen to this sweet sweet music coming our way. But I'm on holiday, so I have time and will I use it constructively? Learn a new skill, read a book, write a resume so I can apply for a job? That would be great, but you know whats better than all that? You do, I know you do, 9 Blistering tracks compiled by Mr Jaraluca. If that's not enough to stir up the hornet's nest within then just take a second look at that artwork. Still not cracking a woody? Surely that line up is all you need. Heaven Can't Wait - It can't, or maybe it can. I mean I thought I couldn't wait when i saw Hypnoxock opening this comp, but here I am. Wait I did and boy am i glad about that. An ominous intro leads quickly into a melody and some vocals then woah holy heck this becomes a great track. I still think that most tracks from Eurythmia are better than his singles but that probably has more to do with it being a masterpiece than anything. Still a good track. Medistajon - No autocorrect there, we aren't trying to spell meditation. Clementz is here with fat kicks and melodies that take you higher and higher. Balancing between light and dark for the duration of a track ain't always easy, but you wouldn't know it here. Space monkeys - Whether that's a kookaburra or a monkey really isn't important here. Median has done the usual and come in hot. That explosion after the breakbeat is incredible. This track takes you and Cappuccino the Capuchin directly through nebulas. Entranced - Goad takes us into cosmic space land which really is the most wonderful place to get Entranced. But with under 8 minutes and no real climax I feel like I just got dropped off at the edge of space and left there. The Ektoplazm - Jaraluca picks up where he left off with his last album. Only he got a little wilder, a lil more cray with the same Jaraluca full flavored spice. Very nice track. Power of the Ori - A nice spacetime banger that really take off at the 5 minute point. Man I love that moment. Raw leads and acid take center stage as Omneon marches us into battle with the full power of the Ori behind us. Hall-Lux - Did he just? Is this song the? How did he? ARTHA IS BAAAACK!! What ever he has been up to its well worth the wait. I'm saying my favourite track of the year so far. Clean screeching leads, melodies and perfect direction changes. A little bit of classic Artha dancing around a modern new sound Artha. Every element of this track is done to absolute perfection. I can only say nice pretty things. Suydam - After his track on the Va - Lotus, I really can't do anything to contain my excitement by seeing his name on a lineup. I don't need a reminder why but if I did this track would be it. While I'd probably dislocate my shoulder trying to keep up with this. Milky way (bonus track) - Do you like digital album bonus tracks? As some one who only buys digital it never really feels like a bonus track, feels more like, a track. But I'm not complaining. Another track! The comps not over! And boy am I happy about that. Toxeed comes in fast and hard with some great story telling and really cool melodies. Now I have to go and listen to his older works, I've been turnt. I'd absolutely lose my marbles if I heard this on a dancefloor. More bonus tracks! What a goshdang goddang ride. There are so many good tracks on this compilation that every time I think I have a favourite another comes along and steals my attention. While 604 Syndroms felt more dance floor friendly and spacious, 303’s is mostly space fuelled and a great homage to the instrument that made this genre what it is. I'm hoping more people purchase this to encourage more Goa comps from Mamomam. Well done to all the artists, Jaraluca and Mamomam records on what will probably be the 1st or 2nd best comp of the year. https://mamomamrecords.bandcamp.com/album/va-303-syndroms

  8. Hey all, First post - producer here from South Africa - thought I'd share my new EP Cosmic Dawn. Any feedback/ comments welcome. Thanks for listening. https://soundcloud.com/longliveluka/sets/cosmic-dawn-ep - L -
  9. Artist: Celestial Intelligence Album: Perpetual Energy Label: Suntrip Records Tracklist: 1. Into The Depths Of Illusion 2. Divine Miracles 3. Constant Motion 4. Anapa 5. Celestial Beings 6. 1001 Reasons 7. Gray Matter 8. A Different Story 9. Perpetual Energy "Perpetual Energy" is not just the album title, it is also a disclaimer. The debut album from Celestial Intelligence is big, loud and brazen, an almost non-stop blast of excellent goa, where so much is fit into the productions that it seems not the slightest bit more could be added but details are never sacrificed, always crystal-clear and never overlooked in this maelstrom of careening dance-floor bliss. One highlight would certainly be the E-Mantra-esque "A Different Story" that creates a warm and inviting world of sound but still includes enough oomph to live up to the "Perpetual Energy" promise. Perhaps the track is a stand-out because it dares to go down a different path from most everything else on the album. The top moments here belong to the three-track block of "Constant Motion," "Anapa" and "Celestial Beings." The energy never relents but there is pure bliss in this chaos. Suited well for a sunny festival afternoon this would be that special 25-minutes where time and space disappear and the plot about everything you may know anything about is completely lost. The worst thing about this album would be "1001 Reasons" and that poor track suffers simply by having the misfortune of playing after the aforementioned trio. To say Celestial Intelligence has made a great debut album sounds a bit insulting, as if it is suggesting that a veteran's album would be more worthy of your time. With tastefully gleeful mayhem, Celestial Intelligence has made a great album. Period. Listen to Celestial Intelligence - "Constant Motion": https://soundcloud.com/celestial-intelligence/celestial-intelligence-constant-motion Edit: As the days go on it seems more and more focus is put on the mastering of the album rather than the music itself. It seems quite a few feel the album is too loud and it detracts from the overall experience. I have not encountered any such problem and maybe most non-technical listeners will not either. The sound is clear to these ears, the lines between the layers are clearly drawn and it is easy to skip between any layer on any given track. There are some beautiful melodies contrasted, to my utter fascination, by an energy flow that never stops in one place for very long. If it is too loud, well, I do not agree. It is just loud enough to suit the album adequately. Those of the other point-of-view, unfortunately, may be missing out on a very good experience. This music is fantastic!

    Psychowave - Chronicles Ep

    Artist: Psychowave Title: Chronicles ep Label: Spacedock Records Date: July 27, 2018 1. Elephants In Pocitos 2. Fight Like A Woman 3. Life Waves Psychowave has produced two tracks which have found their way into my favourite list. His ear for melody and production technique is a treat and sends me into euphoria every time I listen. The new ep comes complete with some pretty artwork done by Natan himself and 3 tracks containing plenty of funk. Elephants In Pocitos - Not as many elephant sounds as I was expecting but still a well produced song thats got a fat baseline and trip atmospheres abound. Fight Like A Woman - Yea declare a never ending battle that you can escape from at any moment but subject your enemy to at any moment at your discretion. Yea that’ll do it. Great trippy song with good development and huge drums pounding away. Life Waves - A quick lesson on waves and a great collection of melodies intertwined with one another. My favourite of the three but just by a hair. This aint no Sunshine Reborn, but a less melodic more psychedelic trippier blast into happy land. Well done to SpaceDock for their continued support of a great artist, who has managed to avoid the norm of the Brazilian psytrance scene and produce Goa blasters. The title of the album suggests more eps to come in the same vein, I'm looking forward to those insta-buys. https://spacedockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sddg014-psychowave-chronicles-ep

    Ephedra - What the Future Brings

    Artist: Ephedra Title: What The Future Brings Label: Goa Madness Records Release: May 18, 2018 Tracklist: - 1. In Search Of Flying Saucers 2. Flying Into The Night 3. Twisted Keys 4. Machiavellin? 5. Savannah Monk Trail (Ephedra & Imba) 6. Cosmic Collaboration (Proxeeus & Ephedra) 7. Return To the N Life 8. Deep inside Feelings 9. Floating Souls Ok whats going with you bunch? Triquetra, Morphic Resonance, Sab Kuch, Lectro Spectral, Geomagnetic/Timewarp comps and the rest of the 2018 release gang (you're all great) and now Ephedra. You graduate from middle school? Finally got yourselves real jobs? Get yourselves married? Have a couple of kids? Cause 2018 has been a year of mature music. A year of well thought out, technical bangers that have got me hitting puberty. Now Ephedra comes in to bring to add a little extra flavour. To show that the big boys know when to hold back till just the right point, when to build but not explode, when to reserve their tracks to create anticipation, when to just make nice sounds and not stress about all the hooha. 2018 got us all grown up. In search of Flying Saucers - UFO's. mystery. space. aliens. New Mexico the home of the Roadrunner. The kick Is hot the leads are perfectly reserved coming in and out but never to insane. This is the patience Im talking about. A really really good track. Flying Into The Night - a little break beat introduces us into spacier and faster feeling track. The leads twirl and slice away in the back, being brought forward at perfect moments as the rest of the track balances out. The melody is infectious as its shot at you over and over again. The track is pure hyperspace listening material, put it on and before you know it you’ve reached galaxy NGC 7320 All Aboard Twisted Keys - we don’t slow down here, a short moody intro keeps the journey rolling. Little tribal drum taps in the background are beat out with the lightest of fingers before leads takes centre stage & zip us away. Once again Ephedra balances the elements and layers out with exquisite grace. Nothing in this song is monotoned & just as you think the frenzy has ended Ephedra takes it up a notch and finishes with some great knob fiddles. Machiavellian - Ah señor Niccolò, the espouser of the old greek and roman value systems as well as the man that had the personality trait of deceit, self interest and manipulation named after him. The only manipulation in this song is that of Ephedra’s tools over your brain. Ephedra darkens things up a bit while keeping a coherent flow throughout the song. A perfect track for workplace craftiness, backstabbing a trusted confidant and dancing in any dark location of your picking. Epehdra & Imba - Savannah Monk Trail - Love the choral vocals and the drums in the intro. Another cool baseline and kick combo then takes us off to a happier place where elastic leads extend in and out. More squelches, an elephant and tribal chants set this track apart from the others. Imba and Ephedra’s mojo works in fine balance with each other, proven as the track increases in intensity from start to finish. A fav Ephedra and Proxeeus, Cosmic Collaboration - I gotta say I was excited when I saw these two together on a track, even more so the the title suggested that these two came up with some sweet sweet hallucinogenic Himalayan Cliff Bee Mad honey for us all to sip on. They did, much more melodic than I expected while still completely psychedelic and of course totally banging, another welcome and successful combination of talent. Return to the N Life - A title that would also work well for an Ice Cube album, Return to the N life takes us back into the land of classic ephedra. Another mature track that despite not really standing out I would still play at any party, yea even my nephews 6th birthday party. Once again Ephedra shows a lot of skill with his instruments and thought in production. Deep Inside Feelings - Ephedra gets all sentimental and opens up his electrifying feelings to us. I love when he strips the baseline away, a metaphor for his struggle to balance an minimalist life with the pressure to succeed (I don’t know, sounds cool though). The song is hot hot hot but nothing prepares you for whats next. Floating souls - The closing track. What's it gonna be? Which way will he take this? Many questions and only one answer. Ecstasy. Ephedra takes us away from all earthly feelings and into a land of the beyond. I don’t know exactly what it is….Yes I do, the intensity, leads, melody, dreamy floatiness and all the other things that make Goa trance just so incredible. This goes up there with Experiments into some of my favourite Goa trance tracks of all time. That’s that, what I will call a perfectly balanced album. This is by far my favourite Ephedra album, the patience in the track development all the way to the actual track development really stand out here. It’s a skill that comes with experience and with 3 albums under his belt it seems like Ephedra is getting plenty of that. Like all good middle school graduations, Ephedra has matured his sound into something completely delightful for the ears. Big shout out to Goa Madness for their support of great artists and 3 big blasting Ephedra albums. https://goamadnessrecords.bandcamp.com
  12. It's finally the time. http://www.arabesquedistribution.com/components/com_artistavenue/media/large_images/datcd012.jpg The triple album of Gangguru is something completely unexpected, a treasure from the past teleported right to the present. This music was preserved on DAT tapes by the band, and a couple of years ago the DAT Records team digitized it and with the help of the producers identified and sorted a multitude of storming Goa Trance tracks. These have been remastered and tested on dancefloors during this period and itís now time to unleash them to the future for everyone to have and enjoy. These tracks are potent DJ tools and were played all over back in the 90s, at least one DJ remembering the band's early productions being played in Goa in 1996. DAT Records is proud to present a spectacular selection of the best of the best from over a hundred tracks that the band produced in the 90s, and we are sure that many will remember these tracks from their partying times and others will delight in hearing these creations for the first time. The tracks have been wonderfully remastered and are ready to be played out loud at events for years to come, so have fun and enjoy the trippy and magical music of Gangguru!

PS: The first track is called Ramawai and not Ramawao, on the artwork of the release the title is correct, not sure why on Arabesque there is this mistake.
  13. Artist: Ufomatka Title: Off The Beaten Track Of The Universe Label: Cronomi Records Date: June 29, 2018 1. Transition To Hyperspace 2. The City Of Acid Trips 3. Sliders 4. Space Chronicles 5. USS Enterprise 6. Nebula 7. Drifting Across The Universe 8. Voyager-1 (Leaving The Solar System) This is the first album from Ufomatka aka Alexandr Yemelyanov from Ukraine. I am not familiar with his EP's or his tracks from compilations, so I had no idea what to expect with this album. The sound here can be described as cybernetic/dark psytrance, similar to artists like UX, Cydonia, Portamento, MFG Genesis era, etc. 1. Transition To Hyperspace: Starts off with a nice memorable bassline, slowly and methodically building upto 2:26, where the song starts taking off. I really like the second half of the song from 4:31 where the layers keep piling up till the outro. 2. The City Of Acid Trips: City? Song title feels out of place compared to the rest of the album. Anyway, we get a nice goa melody in the intro, then around 1:00 the song takes off, no slow building this time. I love the rapid, fast paced sounds here: the percussion, the synths, make it seem like the song is about to erupt. There are a lot of different psychedelic sound effects and subtle melodies on top of a steady rhythm. At 5:22, the song changes up and introduces a melody which could be considered the climax. This song is more aggressive than the previous one. 3. Sliders: I love the electric intro here, probably my favorite on the album. We get a simple, growly lead at 1:58, with other layers and melodies complementing it nicely. At 3:32, the simplistic growly lead takes a backseat, but I find it overstayed it's welcome. At 5:30, the song recovers itself when the climactic melody of the song appears, and then a few complementary melodies. 4. Space Chronicles: This song is similar to the previous one in that there is a simple, repetitive, techno-ish rhythm that overstays its welcome, but the layers and melodies keep it very interesting. I love the progression in this one, and it's subtleness, especially the cool background synth from 3:25-3:38. The climactic melody at 5:36 is fantastic as well. Overall, this song is packed with tons of ideas. 5. USS Enterprise: This one is a midtempo, journey-esque, laidback song, and it is perfection. There really isn't a climax in this song, but things are constantly changing, shifting, evolving with layers coming in and out gently. My favorite track on the album, and the longest song so far (but felt the shortest). 6. Nebula: Another midtempo song, similar to the previous one. Very atmospheric intro, but then it kinda becomes generic goa trance. Things get interesting and less generic at 4:35, and it fully redeems itself in the second half. I like the electric melody at 7:18, reminds me of UX. I felt like this song didn't need to be this long, he could have easily trimmed the first 4 mins. 7. Drifting Across The Universe: Intro really does make it seem like you're drifting. I love the creativity in this one, especially the synth from 2:25-3:18 and 6:16-6:45 which feel funky and free-styli. The dark, gravy boiling sounds at 4:50 reminds me of something from Growly Family GMS. Another great mid-tempo song. 8. Voyager-1 (Leaving The Solar System): A sample about Voyager, and an uplifting intro. Not a fan personally of the first 3 mins. But the song recovers quickly after that. The rest of the song has so much class, so much swagger, and you just don't hear this kind of style and fashion in Goa trance often. Does this guy play saxophone in his spare time? I thoroughly enjoyed this album from start to finish. The production is great, and I've always preferred this style of cybernetic goa trance over the traditional style. I also like how few samples are present in this album, they are quiet and non intrusive. The one complaint I have about this album is the lack of variation: similar to MFG's Project Genesis, the album really likes to repeat synths for extended periods of time, which is I guess what the artist wanted based on the promo "His musical flow follows the tradition of the avant garde and psychedelic trance/techno movement". Now I need to listen to his EP's. 4.5/5 https://cronomi.bandcamp.com/album/ufomatka-off-the-beaten-track-of-the-universe
  14. Hi all, Perhaps this question has been asked a while ago, but I can't find it. I'm interested in a statistic of you guys/girls frequenting goa parties. Here in Belgium there are parties every weekend (it seems), but I go to 1-2 parties per year (I'm 42 btw)? I have to say that the more I go, the more I love goa and its scene. The vibe is so great at parties. So I do intend to go more and more. I'm still a newbie. :-) How often do you go? You like small parties or big festivals? Can you describe the atmosphere? A.
  15. Artist: Fractal Vivesection Album: Through The Vortex Label: Timewarp Release November 25, 2013 There's something deeply alluring about the sort of main room goa trance that Fractal V put out on this album. If Goa was the sort of genre that had big 6 month promotions for stadium shows in capitol cities, Fractal V would be headlining. This is full power orchestral trance that blasts you through vortex after vortex with non stop energy pulsing through you. The use of vocals is Al Dente, the looping in some parts of the song could come across as repetitive to some but for me it just adds to the intensity of the builds. The variety between tracks is just right with each one being equally as uplifting as the last. Interplanetary Voyage - Alarmingly sweet. We are introduced to the album, and before we know it shot into interplanetary space. An entrancing album opener that leaves me open for more. Traveling Apart - Diffidently amazing. an absolute orchestral treat for our ears. We have guitar, strings and vocals, with nothing overused. My favourite on the album for sure with full jumping up and down a part of the package. Interstellar Gliding - Shockingly good, i love the phaser sounds at the start, cutting through the air like it aint a thing. The singing comes through the same, cutting its way above the track and floating through the air. One of my favourite tracks on the album. My Name is Trance - Terribly enjoyable. The vocals lift me up and send me floating through trance land. The main lead is a little much after a while but when it leaves the rest of the song doesn't let up and carries it self forward right to a beautiful end. Molecular Instability - Appallingly ethereal. Here i was thinking that this album was going to be full of lightness. What a goofball, Space isn't full of light. In fact there is more darkness than anything in this universe. More nothing than something. Unlike this track which is most certainly more something than nothing, sneaky little guitar. You'll see. Distant Echos - Fearfully soft. Love a long intro, love organic instruments, love builds. love the main break, love the echos. All Bueno over here Tachyon - Hopelessly wonderful. The string instruments are a treat and leave a little hoping for what is to come. And they do come back in all their grace. Subconscious Flashback - Timorously pleasant. FV comes in with a slower softer track. The leads go on for like 168 bars before changing, very cool track with a little bit of something special making me raise my hands to the sky all the way to the end. Travelling Apart (Part 2) -Diffidently sensational. A floating outro eases us out of the many vortex's we have been shot through. 3:18 isn't quite enough to slow my heartbeat down but it's a start. Timewarp are tricky to navigate. You find an album, you earmark it for later and before you know it 3 more albums are out that require attention. Then Neogoa release something that is obviously going to poke at you till you give it a listen. Before you know it your 'to listen' list is taking up too many Giga bits and you gotta start fresh. Into the Vortex was a complete chance listen one night before going to bed but which ensured i did not go to bed. A complete surprise. If you are a full powered trance fan who can go an hour without letting themselves up from a punchy kick, then this album is for you. https://timewarprecords.bandcamp.com/album/through-the-vortex

    Chi-A.D. Earth Crossing

    Chi-A.D. - Earth Crossing Amakusa Records Tracklist 1 Hammerhead 9:40 2 Black Light 8:02 3 Zero Barrier 9:11 4 X-Isle 9:52 5 Transparent Sea 9:34 6 Book Of Eden 9:25 7 Liquid Neon Sky 11:47 8 Blue Effect 11:13 Very good album throughout, that was finally brought to light thanks to Amakusa Records. Beautiful melodies and captivating atmospheres are the strong points of this album. One thing I don’t like in much of Chi-A.D.’s music is the excessive use of voice samples, which are fortunately nonexistent here. The melodies… ethereal, heavenly, elevating, I really like them, they’re just my cup of tea. Not your typical eastern melodies. I personally like melodic goa but I don’t really dig it when the eastern element is too prevalent. This album is hypnotic, dreamy, quite floaty without many twists, turns, or huge climaxes. That might be the downside in a couple of tracks, as they don’t seem to build up towards anywhere. But the music flows nicely, is well thought and trippy in a more “relaxing” way, with the melodies guiding you to otherworldly places. So, don’t expect full power goa that will make you stomp the ground. Favourites: Book of Eden, Liquid Neon Sky and X-Isle, but there is something to like in all tracks I think. Kudos to Amakusa for releasing another gem! 3/3 so far, I’m curious what will be next… Buy: https://www.discogs.com/sell/list?master_id=84610&ev=mb Or contact directly at: amakusa604@gmail.com
  17. Label: Timewarp Records Date: August 2018 Format: Digital 1. JaraLuca - Evolving Forces 07:27 2. Fiery Dawn - Alien Planet 08:08 3. Clementz - Seduced By Stars 09:41 4. InnerZone & NervaSystem - Ribos (InnerZone Remix) 09:24 5. Mania - Ingenious Neomorph 09:25 6. Proxeeus - Cthulhu Lives 10:44 7. MeloDeep - Spirit Of The God 09:19 8. Clementz - Ae Re Stu 06:03 9. Atlantis - Crystal Sphere 09:40 10. Spectrum, Ion Vader - Freedom or Death 08:04 Timewarps latest goa compilation, including a DJ Mix. Let's gooooo!!! Jaraluca: What an opener of this fine compilation. Jaraluca presents a goa monster with a deep bassline and fantastic synth lines. Gradually the track intensifies as the synths go crazy. The synths carry the track. It is so cleverly made. Real climactic goa trance with a hypnotic feel to it. Love it! Boy, would I love to hear it at a party. Jos? Fiery Dawn: Fiery Dawn's contribution is a slow starter and a rather linear track. Although it gets a bit more interesting after the 6 min mark, it's not a (big) climax. It's an easier track to rest a bit. I was hoping for some surprises, but I'm left hungry. Clementz: Hints of acid hypnotically injecting your brain. This sounds good! Gradually the track goes into melodic style while keeping the acid lines in the background. Quite a relaxing and pleasant morning track here, but when played out loud could cause some damage in the final run where everything comes together. Nervasystem: Shit, this is a demonous track. Slowly it grabs you, hypnotizes you. There are pads, acid blips, whatever you want. But they're connected in such a way that a hypnotizing track is made. One hypnotizing section after another. Not sure why the voice is talking about some molecule called ribos instead of ecstacy. Ha! Wonderful blistering finale where synths meet pads meet acid! Mania: Shit, why does this have to sound like it's 1996? I mean, the ingredients are there. Spiralling synths, a rolling bassline... But the kick is so dry and pale. There is not enough thickness in the track for me to really enjoy it. Guess that's the oldschool vs newschool thingie. I miss the deeeeep bass. Not bad, but not my style. Proxeeus: Yes, fucking yes. We have reached the 10 min long holy grail of this compilation. Ladies and chaps, Proxeeus is here! Where on his 2 albums he mainly explores (successfully) 303 sounds, this track has it all. Dancefloor madness it is. Right from the first second I am immersed in overwhelming sounds. Then the bassline crushes my skull. The goa train has left the station! Lots of laser sounds and lovable melodic synths is what this track is all about. The personality of this track is immense. It's like Proxeeus had a vision, a thought, and melted it into music. Only the truly blessed can do this. Oh yes, and there is acid 303 madness too. Lots of them. Jos! Play this shit at OiG XXII. Omg I die. Melodeep: A sweet oriental-influenced goa number surrounded by acid. Makes me think of Antares or Ra 9th Style. Very sweet on the ears and definitely on repeat here. Lots of details in the background if you listen carefully. The melody comes into play at certain points in the track and give it a very personal feel. I catch myself humming it after a while. Likey! Clementz: Clementz hits hard with this track from the start. Hardly no intro, just cuts right to the chase. Fantastic goa synths are all over the place, carried by deep basswork. I would go nuts on the dancefloor! Aqueous sounds and acid blips push the track forward into the next mayhem. Yep, dance material here. Ace! Atlantis: I'm gonna admit it right away. I'm in love with this track. It doesn't go crazy with loud chaotic sounds. No, it exists and intrigues purely because of its hypnotising ability. The bassline is very addictive and always present. My head is nodding up and down because of it. The bassline is surrounded by acid and bubbles and this for more than 9 minutes. It's an unstoppable bulldozer. Grooovy! Spectrum, Ion Vader: A pussy would end an uptempo compilation with a downtempo track. But DJ Lurfilur is not a pussy. No sir. Another uptempo goa track to finish the album. Perhaps it is the madness of the former tracks that leaves me unimpressed with this last track. Very instrumental, sterile and linear. Not strong, but good for winding down from what we've heard before. DJ MIX A a bonus, we get a DJ Mix by DJ Lurfilur, who mixes all these tracks together for a good hour of non stop goa madness. And a well crafted mix it has become. Congrats man! Conclusion: A must have compilation. Timewarp is sometimes hit and miss, but this is a hit. And DJ Lurfilur has proven to be a connoisseur of compiling goa albums. Hail! Buy links: Bandcamp Beatport Psyshop
  18. Title: Altering the Synaptic Controllers Artist: Ufomatka Label: Sentimony Records Release: 2 January 2018 Tracklist: 1. Multiplexer 2. Alien Controlled Human Exterminator 3. Fornax Cluster 4. Warper-mutator 5. Weird Species Sentimony records really summed this release up better than I ever could. "The release name came from nowhere and the dick knows what it is, but it will all fuck us out Get it now and have fun! " It fucked me out the first time I heard it. It's nice to see Goa artists step outside of the comfort zone of traditional 4 on the floor structures and just let loose with their tools. only 3 songs here are really Goa, the other 2 are more Break Beat, sloa styled fuck knows what (Like the track titles).... But they're interesting to say the least. Oh and quite good. 1. Multiplexer - Our journey begins a pretty radical baseline, simple but radical. The track plods along nicely reaching what we could call some sort of climax around the last act of the song. This EP is clearly gonna get points for standing out from what has been released recently. 2. Alien Controlled Human Exterminator - A bouncier track with analog leads pumping out at us as it goes along. The intensity builds quite nicely as random squelches and sounds keep things interesting. Ufo doesn't over use anything and keeps it fresh. 3. Fornax Cluster - The most melodic of the tracks so far. Funky baselines, pure analog shooting us into the unexplored dimensions of dirty space. What? you thought space was all magical and pretty. Well Ufomatka proves us wrong here. Acid drenched planets wizz by as our spaceship wipes grime from its windows. Beautiful in its own way. 4. Warper-mutator - Our hyperspace intergalactic travels have flown right down. Stuck now in the grease dripping, uninhabited bogs of another world, Ufomatka continues our journey. Very trippy track, the pa rum pa rum rum of the percussion really stands out for me. Analog AF. 5. Weird Species - The strangest of the tracks, about as alien as it can get. I feel myself floating through the final canals of our journey. As soon as it appears as though I might make it through to the other side I end up where I started. Looking at this weird species that managed to find itself here, altering synaptic controllers. Thats it folks. A truly wild and weird ride through Ufomatka's soundscapes. His creativity really stands out here and those of you that love pure rough analog, boy oh boy get a taste of this. While rough around the edges (I believe it was meant to be) you've got something here that really does stand out from what I've heard not only Ufomatka release but other artists in this genre. Keep it up amigo. https://sentimony.bandcamp.com/album/ufomatka-altering-the-synaptic-controllers

    Progressive Anarchists - La Laguna Negra
