  1. Hello Psynewsers! This is the dj set I played at Mossy Behavior - Forgotten Forest Tales (2017-09-15) in Belgium where they invited Schlabbaduerst Rekkords. I recorded it back at home since it didn't get entirely recorded at the party. It's a mix of darkish Oldskool Goa, early '00 Psytrance and Oldskool Forest Trance. I tried to make the set easy enough to step into, but also psychedelic enough to be worthy of leading into the Schlab team. It's probably the most representative mix on my Mixcloud as I mostly get booked at night and these are the genres I play the most. Hope you'll enjoy! Comments more than welcome! https://www.mixcloud.com/Psyt3k/psytek-mossy-behavior-forgotten-forest-tales-2-2017-09-15/

    Welcome Please make yourself comfy.. Would you like some tentacles?
  5. Gubbology - Anachronism

    Artist: Gubbology Title: Anachronism Label: Troll N' Roll... Ektoplazm release Date: 20/9/2017 Track list 01 - Time Is On Our Side (143 BPM) 02 - Bronze Age Youth (143 BPM) 03 - Communicative Zone (145 BPM) 04 - Dark Arts (148 BPM) 05 - Space Junk (147 BPM) 06 - Primordial Soup (145 BPM) 07 - Ultraviolett (143 BPM) 08 - Amber Archives (143 BPM) Ok it's late night so bear with me. I don't know where to begin. I've been going through threads learning everyone's perspective on Goa music today. A lot of it the discussion comes down to originality, a sense of playfulness, and artist skill. Well. The folks over at Troll N' Roll records have teamed up with Ektoplazm to deliver, to you, Gubbology - Anachronism. I won't go into individual songs as that would take far to long and I have a lot to say already. The relationship between dark psy and forest has always been apparent. While I've noticed aspects of it in some goa releases it's never the defining feature. No more, Gubbology has shown how beautiful the two, three, four?? genres can dance around in a twisted display of respect for one another. Gubbology keeps each aspect away from one another until like a magician he brings them all together in beautiful climax's. For that reason I can't really say that we should label it into a genre as it's just Gubbology's unique take one psytrance. Every song bounces around playfully, going from light happy energetic dance floor destroyers to deeper darker twisted funk. Each track is original from the last. Each track is fun. Each track is a challenge for you to keep up. If it was easy to do this I imagine I would have heard more like it before. I can't believe this is given free to us via Ektoplazm, that generosity is twisted in it's own way. Well i don't know what else to say. Can you tell I think this album is worth everyone's time. And it might not blow you away the way it has me, but i think you're all going to like this. Regards, http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/gubbology-anachronism Edit: I completely disregarded the Suomi influence up there. Oh the Suomi! I love how the suomi style of 'i'm just going to do whatever the fuck i feel like' really pays off here. I can say this album is a gateway into atleast 4 different genres. Would love other peoples take on it

  12. Best cure for hangovers... Morning Goa. Do Enjoy!!
  13. It's the weekend my dudes!! Enjoy...
  14. Alright, backboning of the 'best earphones for Goa' thread, I thought I'd ask, does anyone here have a specific phone that they have found works best with fast electronic music? specifically Goa? I'm still using an iPhone 4 (I know, I know, It's a very impressive show of patience. Thank you all very much). It has recently been brought to my attention that phones like the HTC 10 and LG v20 use DAC technology to create a better sound through headphones. I think some lesser known brands like Vivo do this too. Has anyone looked into this before or noticed a phone providing better audio than others? does it even make a difference or is it just audio-washing used by tech reviewers?

  16. VA - 604 Syndroms

    Artist: VA Title: 604 Syndroms Label: Mamomam Records Date: January 2017 Tracklist 1. Zopmanika - Namaskaratha Mantra 9:27 2. Lectro Spektral Daze - Source Of All Life 8:26 3. Ephedra - Leaving the Shadow Side of Myself 7:03 4. Trinodia - Factorized 10:15 142bpm 5. Siam - Electric Discharge 8:13 6. E-Mantra - Unhcegila 7:25 7. Omnivox - Textures of Reality 8:51 8. Oxi - Sagittarius Love 6:33 9. Title 01 - Desert Ghost 9:13 CD 2. 1. Artha - Controlled (Old School Remix) 9:29 2. Space Element - Biotech 7:56 3. OmegaHertz - Zeta Zone 7:08 4. Jagoa - Rainy Saturday 7:41 5. Journey into Sound - Gallifrey 7:33 6. JaraLuca - Unexpected Experience 7:53 7. Omneon - Dark Matter 6:50 8. Ohm Mind - Mushroom Island 9:17 9. Proxeeus - Kuiper Belt 10:02 What’s that phrase again? Oh yea, DANCEFLOOR DESTROYER! Top notch kicks, I mean absolutely outstanding kicks, solid basslines and production like OMG. Spaced out layers without subduing leads, melodies and highs. Oh and that album cover. I tried to resist for weeks, but every time I saw it I got a little bit more curious. Probably the best example of dancefloor focused goa i've heard (Open to suggestions). Why is this important? All trance should be able to make it to a dancefloor and goa has to be the best form of trance I know. Yet it’s near impossible to hear played on a night out. Even Australian doofs choose hard chunky kick bass over acid leads and melody. I think the production of Goa has a lot to do with that, those soft spacey kicks can be and are great, they add a lot to a track and obviously are all part of the bigger picture in a song but it makes it unpalatable to the casual raver...You know, the ones that say ‘Fuck Yea! This is psytrance’ halfway through a Vin Vici set. Well, no longer will we allow that, not after 604 Syndroms. Storytelling, top notch production, distinct layers, atmospheric banger after banger dancefloor spectacular. Alright let's begin. Zopmanika - Namaskaratha Mantra - Oh yea, what a way to start a comp. I love me some vocals on a track, even better when it's an absolute stormer of a goa track. One of my favourites on the release if not my number 1. Lectro Spektral Daze - Source Of All Life - Somewhat of a generic intro, appreciate the lil’ vocal all the same. And then boom. The kick comes in hard. Plenty of psychedelia early on. Two tracks in and things are looking good. Ephedra - Leaving the Shadow Side of Myself - More vocals, jesus the Goa gods are looking down on us tonight. The intro is almost magical, but we ain’t here to daydream about the stars. Another stormer! Alright I won't say that anymore, from now let's just assume. Ephedra absolutely kills this track, from start to finish it had me moving. Bravo. Trinodia - Factorized - Look, we should allow a little bit of cheese in our diet, a little bit of cheese goes down just perfectly after a Moules Marinières. The production is just so clean it’s hard to complain and why would you? Factorized is fun, it’s hip and the kids are gonna love it! Darker synths come in towards the second half of the track, the melody changes up. Have a listen, just one won't hurt. Siam - Electric Discharge - Magic, I love how Siam builds this track. Fun bassline, Screeches all over the place working beautifully. One hell of a high powered electrical discharge infecting my ears right now and all i want is more. E-Mantra - Unhcegila - Ooh ok, I’m actually excited to review an E-Mantra track. First of all, this comp doesn’t need a fall back artist, just in case. E-Mantra clearly does, not, give, a, fuck, he smashes this track. All over it, up and down, caressing my synapses right to the end. Omnivox - Textures of Reality - I can’t figure it, but another favourites of mine. Great use of effects, sunny melody surrounded by squelches, dark atmospheres and a deep grumbling bassline. There it is, that's what I like about it. Oxi - Sagittarius Love - uh huh, pretty good until the break just before halfway through, and then it’s great. Blast off Houston. It’s a blazer. Title 01 - Desert Ghost - I spent me about 15 minutes trying to figure out who the actual artist of this track was….The breaks are pretty good. Non of the artists are going for builds and drops but in their own Goa-ry way it’s happening. A nice, crazy, fast, hectic finish to CD 1. And onto CD 2. I’m almost drooling to see what delites await us on the other side Artha - Controlled (Old School Remix) - Ok, so I wasn’t paying attention the first time I heard this and could not for the life of me figure out why it sounded so familiar. It’s also worth noting that Artha was the guy who fostered my relationship with the genre. So good sign yea? Different enough that it has me wondering which i like best…Right now I’m just thinking that all goa is the best TBH. Ah and that long ass break hasn’t been chucked out. Love it. Love it all. Space Element - Biotech - Ah raw acid all over the place (The leads damn it! I’m talking about the leads!!). Non stop charging trance that doesn’t let up. OOOOHHHHH that riff. One another classic that I shan't be forgetting anytime soon. OmegaHertz - Zeta Zone - Something a little different for us all. CD2 was meant to showcase the oldschool sound. If Artha’s track didn’t do it for you OmehaHertz has got you covered. I mean Personally i’m not getting the old school sound? Is it the strong focus on melody? If that's oldskool then the kids have got it all wrong. Zeta Zone is beautiful. My gosh. Jagoa - Rainy Saturday - Literally dealing with a 3 and a half minute build here until the track takes off, it’s a beautiful thing. “And no one had a bad trip” Perfect, melodic bliss. Gah that production, those 303’s that goa! I would buy this track alone for the price of this comp. But shhhh! Don’t tell the algorithms. Journey into Sound - Gallifrey - Another story focused banger. Journey really takes you somewhere special with Gallifrey. JaraLuca - Unexpected Experience - JaraLuca decides now is a good time to take is into Existential questioning. All worth it for what's to come... Look. Lets level with each other here. I want to stop praising each track. I really do. Everytime i start writing that a track is a little less than the others it goes and proves me wrong. Unexpected Experience isn't about to break my stride, in fact it adds to it. Another banger for the library. Omneon - Dark Matter - A dark broody psychedelic banger that has me feeling more than a little bit acidy (Not the leads this time). My only complaint, not nearly near damn long enough, but gee I can always just hit replay. Ohm Mind - Mushroom Island - So i wasn’t a big fan of ‘Birds Will go to Heaven’ I found it a little repetitive and less-ish. But boy did Ohm Mind just win himself a fan. This I thought I had all my favourites picked out until this came on. Absolutely ridiculous track that just goes and goes and goes. I obvs shouldn’t be speaking about favs before getting to Proxeeus so i’ll chill. Proxeeus - Kuiper Belt - THE TIME FOR CHILLING IS OVER!! Proxeeus, what have you done to me. This acid (Fuck i’m talking about the leads damn it!) drenched arpeggio master piece is a stormer. Typical Proxeeus style but just so so sooooo good. The track gets better and better as is expected with our man big Prox. I couldn’t ask for a better consumation than this. Thank you Proxeeus, thank you Mamomam. It’s as though every artist on here, some of them seasoned vets, took what they new about the way goa was being produced and just said. Not this time round baby. To be honest, if you’re looking for tracks that blow your mind and make you run around the room screaming “What was that! How’re they doing that!!!!!” Then it’s not gonna be this comp (Save for the final two pieces). But the production, focus and pounding drive of every single track here is outstanding. Absolutely worth a purchase. Mamomam have two goa releases under their belt and anything we can do to encourage them to push that number up is worth it. https://mamomamrecords.bandcamp.com/album/va-604-syndroms

  22. Hey Guys This started out as a techno track inititally. Kept the techno bass , in between the psy bass, then chucked a house bass inbetween those two. This formed the basis for all of the melodies. Im presssed for time on this one and gave myself 2 days from start to finish. Happy listening:)

  25. Va - Spirit of Goa Vol. 2

    Artist: Various Title: Spirit of Goa Trance Vol. 2 Label: Fresh Frequencies Date: June, 2017 01. California Sunshine - Flying Eye Land (Remastered) (8:00) 02. Necton - Sliderglider (5:53) 03. Nova Fractal - Common Cold (Screwloose Remix) (8:06) 04. Omnivox - Silent Sweeper (9:35) 05. Trinodia - A11 (2013 Remix) (9:17) 06. Shakta - Lepton Head (Rigel Remix) (8:46) 07. Frost Raven - The Time Traveler (8:53) 08. Lectro Spektral Daze - Between Two and Twelve (9:21) 09. Nostromosis - Space Tribe Of Siberia (8:01) 10. 2Minds - Hindu (9:05) 11. PersiaVibe - Into The Space (7:16) 12. Radical Distortion - Radioastronomy (7:13) 13. Lucid Rainbow - Ebola (7:27) 14. OXI - Quasi Star (7:10) 15. Siam - Run to the Sun (7:23) 16. Judaika - First Encounter (9:22) 17. Psy-H Project - Precession of the Universe (Sonic Elysium Remix) (8:32) 18. Simply Wave - Insight (7:31) CAUTION: Spoilers ahead. Well let’s jump right in. This compilation is simply amazing. I’m still new to the scene and like lots of what i hear. However, the variety within this album is varied enough to keep you listening all week. None of the songs have particularly broody atmospheres (Not meaning they aren’t atmospheric) and they all have strong hard kicks (Still not sure how i feel about those floppy drawn out kicks. Fresh Frequencies are known for their progressive Goa compilations, the only one of which i've heard is their vol.3 2016 mix. The only other Goa they have released is of course vol.1 of this compilation set which I haven't heard but can only imagine is good. 01. California Sunshine - Flying Eye Land (Remastered) (8:00) - Cali Suns songs have a nice steady feel to them that seem to be hit and miss with me. This one was a miss. That being said it was a nice intro track into an album that gets better and better. 02. Necton - Sliderglider - A fun little track that is more than a little bit danceable. Plenty of bass, plenty of high hat builds and some lovely progression throughout the track. Considering what Fresh Frequencies normally deal with you can see why this made it on the comp. A nice addition at that. 03. Nova Fractal - Common Cold (Screwloose Remix) - I've never really given Nova a chance to blow my mind with his work nor have I heard the original track. Should I be reviewing a remix of a song I haven't heard before? (probably not) on it's own merit though This track is great, it's the right amount of crazy with plenty going on obviously done by someone with some serious skills. 04. Omnivox - Silent Sweeper - Omnivox jumps right into it. He takes you through a bunch of twists and turns expertly keeping you focused on the track which doesn't take long to take off. I wasn't a huge fan at first, maybe because it sounded familiar but his style has grown on me. No messing around, just that nice pounding Goa we all love. 05. Trinodia - A11 (2013 Remix) - One of my favourite track on the comp that has grown on me every time i listen to it. I haven't heard Trinodia before but damn this is a nice track. Slowly building up and up until it blows away your ego into the 21st dimension...Or something like that. 06. Shakta - Lepton Head (Rigel Remix) - A great bouncy track with a bouncy bassline that one could call repetitive if it wasn't so good. Another amazing track that doesn't give to much away to early. Every time you think he is going to drop a crazy melody he brings that sexy bassline back in until he finally lets you have it. 07. Frost Raven - The Time Traveler - Every compilation needs a squelchy zippy laser blaster of a song and this is it. I find some of the zips that come through a little repetitive and annoying, you have to try and not focus on them to much when they come through but hey! Who said travelling through time was going to sound pretty. Keep listening and the patience pays off and it all starts to make a bit more sense. 08. Lectro Spektral Daze - Between Two and Twelve - Look, not the best track on the album but also I can't find it within myself to dislike any Goa. It's all so good (I know right, I'm not really the right guy for a fair review). The track is nice enough and the world is still a better place for it. 09. Nostromosis - Space Tribe Of Siberia - Well well, Nostromosis doesn't waste any time giving you a taste of the melody that's about to be thrown at your face. What starts as a lush dreamy soundscape turns into a wild ride of sounds battling each other for dominance in this track. Then he does it. He gets a fist full of melody and aims right for you. It's a hit! and I love it. 10. 2Minds - Hindu - Oh baby! First of all I love a longer intro. Secondly I love a good bassline. Thirdly I find a lot of Goa producers opt out from any strong vocals, not 2minds. Fourthly...... Fuck it this whole track is great i like just about everything and while I wont mislead you into thinking this a vocal filled track (It's not) when they chanting does come in its good. Then that Scottish melody. For me it's a truly original track I haven't heard the likes of before. 11. PersiaVibe - Into The Space - PersiaVibe layers this track nicely with melodies coming up from underneath melodies almost perfectly. Another dreamy track that makes you feel like your doing floaty dances under the stars at 3 AM. 12. Radical Distortion - Radioastronomy - Mr Radical Distortion, my favourite producer from the Suncokreti comp, Radioastronomy reminds me why. Not the best track on the list but some good old relentless trance that makes you want to move. 13. Lucid Rainbow - Ebola - WHY! Why does the track have to end? I know it's all part of the master plan in making what is the second best track on the comp but i’d happily take a 20 minute version of Ebola. it's bouncy, it's jumpy, it's catchy. You've all been around a while, remember when you used to have melodies stuck in your head for days? weeks? years? This is that for me. 14. OXI - Quasi Star - Some strong pounding trance right into you is what you get with Quasi Star. I can see this being some people favourite track and I can see some people finding that they've heard it before. I dunno I reckon it's a great track worthy of any dancefloor. 15. Siam - Run to the Sun - Siam is Athenian John Pitsakis who hasn't been producing for as long as some of the names on the release. I might just say you can sooooort of tell. Not a bad track by any length but just feels like Siam is playing it safe. 16. Judaika - First Encounter - A nice acid filled symphony of sounds that bounces along beautifully. You get a reprieve from the acid here and there but not for long. 17. Psy-H Project - Precession of the Universe (Sonic Elysium Remix) - A track we might already be familiar with from Sonics Faster Stronger Higher album. My absolute favourite track on the release and an awesome remix of an already awesome song. Sonic E gives the track a bouncier feel (Dare I say more danceable than the original, which is saying a lot). The track doesn't lose steam one as it continues to progress into one non stop eargasm. 18. Simply Wave - Insight - As soon as Insight starts you know you in for a wild ride to finish this album out. No disappointment to be found here. A bit of an Artha sound if I do say so, but i'll take what I can get. The track is a banger and doesn't let up. Not. For. One. Moment. One of my favourites and another reason to get this compilation right this second. In summary, Stop wasting your time and get this compilations right now because if you do not get this right now then you are missing out on a big opportunity of beautiful fast pounding melodic goa that I know everyone on this website is going to find some good good within. ​You can't really compare this to the Mystery Worlds comp with the deep broody atmospheres, darker ambience and crazier twists and turns. I'd say more of a Legacy style Goa, a little lighter and way more dance oriented. 10/10 worth a listen Edit: - Links now added, sorry! https://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/frf/frf2cd025.html https://freshfrequencies.bandcamp.com/album/spirit-of-goa-trance-v2-frshcd025-fresh-frequencies
