First release from the new founded label moontrip records. Luna Nova, or new moon, predisposes us for a dark approach as the inspiring beautiful cover art, expressing effectively the mystic essence of psychedelic trance. ------------------------------------------------- The first track starts dark and monotonous, with a midtempo rhythm, simple but effective. An indian like melody gets in, in a dark perspective. It continues in this way with ethereal effects coming in and out. It reminds me a bit of Twin Sharkfins mixture of hindu spirit in compositions along with a spacey perspective. Great track, midtempo but effective, makes you get in it, very psychedelic. Second track. Starts with celestial atmospheres, making it sentimental, and that's its direction, melodies and lines in trance style with a nostalgic sound. The atmosphere is wonderfull, great lines and buildings. At the final part, a melody gets in which sounds energetic in the beginning but has also some nitzhogoa influences, good and interesting along with other lines chord. The track closes with a bassline diversity and it's atmosphere. Third track. An simple acid line ends in a massive and deep start. The track continues alike with a mid tempo and with accompanying chords to the main melody theme. In the final part, it gets again and even more massive creating depth, feeling and nrg. Nice track. Although it has an oriental texture a bit too open for my taste, i think it's soberness, keeps it in a goa way. Fourth track. Start with an egyptian atmosphere and weird liquid effects. The rhythmical effects are bit too playful and try to give nrg, but the massive melody and its chord inspire us of nostalgia. Great floating lines and chords of a background melody that gives the feeling to the rest. This synthesis has a rich atmosphere creating depth and floatation. At the final part, after an atmospheric and simple passage, a magic melody sends us out of this world. I only didn't like too much the rhythmical playful effects in the most parts, but i might get used to it. Fifth track opens with a dark enviroment. It starts very good with great lines and sounds, a dark take-off in a midtempo pace. The building creates depth and a interest to follow, but the addition (from 2:07 until 2:34 and main melody 3:16 to 4:25) of this kind of oriental melodies, of a Bollywood style, it's quite foreign for my goa standards and taste, afterwhich a deep rich texture initiate us into mystical paths, a very nice passage leading to the atmospheric end. It is an attemp of the synthesis to mix dark goa with oriental trance. Sixth track, begins with an acid strong line. The track doesn't delay to reveal its essense and classification. It's nitzhonot / oriental trance. It's a wellmade composition for the followers of this style, full of variation, but not for my cup of tea. Seventh track. A more fast paced strong beat accompanied by drums fades in a brief intriguing intro. It is a more minimal composition with the exception of a nice melody making it's appearence at the half of the track and the final part, in which alot more is happening though managing to keep its line and itself in the theme. Very nice track. Eighth track commences with a full-on tribal beat from the beginning along with lounge sounding samples and sweet lines. I think its a more club approach. There is some goa influences at some passages, mainly around the half and an oriental turn at the final part. The track is ending in it's lounge tribal full-on beating. Again, not my cup of tea. Final track. A slower mid tempo under a continuous atmosphere. Nice acid lines and a mesmerising build up along with the atmosphere creating a more deep enviroment. The addition of a lounge-style line makes the track more mellow, but not annoying. This chill-out atmosphere returns after a passage of samples and builds-up. Nice track. ------------------------------------------------- All in all, a compilation that some of its parts focus to a more dark goa approach, while some others please more oriental or mellow affinities. I find myself in the first direction along with the mellow tracks, which do not differentiate from the authentic spirit. Personaly, i prefer mostly, compilations of certain direction. moontrip records, here in its first release, presented to us, in many parts, a new appearance of good goa trance creations trying to take a distance from the plasticity of the new school sound. That is very promising, and as a mystic and a follower of this sound, i am waiting from moontrip to extend in this direction.
This new label was created through the Goa Philosophy i believe among many other meanings (one of them being to join Suntrip Records expanding the music we believe in). I'm super positive that the Goa Scene will be very happy to have now both Sun & Moon in their own scene. While the Sun gives you light during the day , the Moon bring us the light during the night (not always which is also another interesting factor). Ladies & Gentlemen , I present you : Moontrip Records. https://www.facebook.com/MoontripRecords Demos : firstname.lastname@example.org
