Have you ever seen something and said that? Nope that's just terrifying. I've never actually vomited spontaneously, but perhaps here... Hey I"m a dog person, but this...f*ck where would you begin to try and pet this...abomination. "Ok...I'll come peacefully. Let me get my fur coat." Need a lawnmower to shave that thatch. He is every cab driver I have ever had in NYC. That's how I felt when I saw this cover. So ugly. So we've got flowers (opium maybe?) mountains, crazy colored clouds, the Earth I guess, and then...what the f*ck is that? Riiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnggggg...yes, it's attention. I craves it. Aw f*ck it, if that's his way of expressing himself more power to him. It's a free country, but good luck finding a job that doesn't involve circus tents and cotton candy. And how does getting laid work? Can't imagine they're lining up for some reptile lovin. How bout that first visit to the girlfriends parents? Actually he's been married for almost 10 years so if that doesn't prove there is someone for everyone....and no she isn't a turtle. Guy's actually really smart. So yeah, this cover is ugly. Maria, no offense but uh...I wouldn't put this on the resume. Less is more, and there is just too much "more" going on. But file this in the don't judge a book by its cover drawer, because there are some seriously good tunes to be found. As you can see this is the 2nd chapter in the Art From the Heart series and like its predecessor it is also free. It's a who's who in the genre of today's goa trance with some names I am sure you will recognize. And some not. But surely if you've been following this music, then you know of the label. They have released the 3 Golden Vibes goa trance compilations and of course the album when the world became aware of Uber-talent Afgin. Witchcraft Night- I swear I've heard that tribal chanting sample, but I cannot put my finger on it. Hmmm...notice it's over 9 minutes and that gives me pause because normally I cannot take 3 minutes of Wonderboy tracks. Just my preference, but I feel he is a better compiler. But this one isn't bad. Flutes, bass sweeps and a general happy vibe until it shifts after 4 minutes. The break sees a return of the chanting sample and I have to admit the flow is very enjoyable. Good job. Evil Machine- Civil servants mistakenly believe they can save Sarah Connor by beating the sh*t out of one of HP's budget models. Alas the blows struck weren't fatal...and laser printers hold a grudge. It's full steam ahead with power and multiple waves of melody. Gotta like the energy in this one. Riot Here! Riot Now!- "No more naps! I mean it...and get that f*cking cauliflower off my plate!" Japanese badasses Jun Iwai & Masakazu Shimodi win the title of don't f*ck around track with a straight out of the box stormer that oozes with intensity. Layers of melody and the presence of some crunchy guitar that doesn't seem out of place. Boom. Ganesh Soul- Very good track by this newcomer with yep you guessed it more layers of melody. He strangles one lead like I want to strangle those baloonheads on Fox News. Wipe that f*cking smirk off your face Steve Doocy! It loses the initial power it had, but it's still good for what appears to be the first release from this project. Kings of Camouflage- nothing to see here, keep it moving people. Aura- I didn't hear his album. Was it good? This was a little too...full-oney for my liking. Pass. Know No Silence- 18 year old (you sonofab*tch wipe that smile off your face!) Israeli Nadav Kahanowich makes some awesome goa trance. Melody + Power = wish I was 18 again. This is not your 4 on the floor type stuff. I mean yeah it gets to that, but it also has other interesting rhythms. He starts tacking on the layers for a pretty good track. Shamar- Kinda has a simple bass line, a bunch of Indian(?) chants or vocal, especially the break. I think if I was bumping this in my car, they would think I was a terrorist. Then I would be brought in for questioning, they'd check my internet history (and I definitely don't want that) and then put on the no fly list...it's a whole thing. It's a little on the thin side, but still enjoyable and pumping. Cleopatra- This gentleman needs no introduction and the soft Indian vocal means the promised land of bollywood can't be far away. Man, he shows us how it's done. Bubbling synths and bass lines, layers of 303 madness, and just smooth as silk flow. It twinkles and then growls for a great ride. One of my favorites. Sun and Snow- Artur Mataryan from Mother Russia has released several albums that are worth checking out. Here he brings rising and falling synths and layers of sound. It's got an outer space feel and is floaty. Good one. Away From Eden- Artur again to close the compilation with a short downtempo track. Big pads and percussion form the foundation with a nice flute melody. Good way to end. So it is what it is. Please overlook the cover and give this a try. Several styles of goa are represented with some good results. It's free so you have nothing to lose but time. Ektoplazm Mdk
Since old is new and everyone is eating it up, there are some old school masters that haven't been represented. I'm glad we got some remixes from Astral, but what about some elephants in the room? Holophonic released it digitally, but as a collector like you guys I would love to have a hard CD copy of Retro: Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 And how about MFG? I know the lineup has changed, but surely they might have unreleased stuff. Hell I'd love some represses of their 4 classic albums! Ethereal works slowly per Anoebis, but maybe a reprint of Anima Mundi? Colorbox? Bypass Unit? Ominus, Miranda? And we are of course waiting for the big guns. Pleiadians. Would love to hear from those who may know the artists or be familiar with the process of getting it done. With the cavalcade of blasts from the past it has seriously whet my appetite for more of this goodness.

Artist: Various Title: Art From The Heart Label: Old Is Gold Date: September, 2009 1. Adrenalin Drum - Tribute To Irvin Prusky 2. NK 47 & The Wonderboy - VVCephei 3. Project Cosmonaut - Over The Sun 4. The Wonderboy - Dedication To God 5. Jikooha - Spirit of Fire 6. Afgin - Apollo 11 (The Eagle Has Landed) 7. Har-El & The Wonderboy - L.S.DRise 8. NK 47 - Yatush Katan 9. Har-El - Vacation In Paradise 10. Apis - Le Voyage Dans Ce Qui Existe Old is Gold is a digital label that was in front of the new school goa trance wave. They had some really good success with the Golden Vibes compilations so they decided to launch another series. Mostly Israeli artists this has some new stuff and some older unreleased material. Tribute To Irvin Prusky- "What are you doing? We don't stop here?" Har-El crafts a floating, melancholy track which I'm guessing he's dedicating to a relative. Good opener. VV Cephei- "It's very addictive...there's nothing that feels like that." Said every bored kid in the back of English class with a low clearance desk ever. In the artists who fell off the face of the planet segment I bring you NK-47. After a promising EP my boy has had his picture posted at all Wal-Mart entrances. What happened to him? This is layered wobbly goa goodness. He goes from minimalistic to Indian melody scales and everywhere in between. Do we need to hold a candlelight vigil? Over the Sun- Ok, two minutes in and I was bored. Dedication To God- "You know, I was like you. But the first thing I learned about emotions...is that it has its price. Complete paradox. But without restraint, without control..." Wow give us a chance to miss you Har-El it's only been two tracks. There are a lot of hippie samples in this one attempting to be enlightening. Artists need to treat them like ice cream. I like a lot of flavors too, but not at the same time. Show a little restraint. The melodies are very simple and patchwork, bordering on been there, done that. Spirit of Fire- So stereotypical. Bring in the Asian when you have a difficult problem you can't solve. Or when there is a need for tentacle porn. But back to the problem. The problem was that this compilation was in real danger of tanking, so Jikooha flies in to save the day. His style is to hammer away with a discordant and incessant melody while building around it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know if he saved it, but he bought some valuable time and kept it afloat. Apollo 11 (The Eagle Has Landed)- Even back in 2009 you could see where Afgin was taking his brand of melodic goa trance. This might even be an old track. Very tight production and the class of the compilation. L.S.DRise- Light and airy it's easily my favorite Har-El track here. Not very complex (I think he likes to keep it simple) just gentle and warming. I know I haven't been kind to Mr. Prusky, but credit where credit is due. Yatush Katan- Beginning with what simply must be called Indian wailing I get that smile on my face as Nadav proceeds to go layer crazy. I swear Bollywood singers have a permanent vibrato. This track has melodies that tumble over each other to be heard. Vacation In Paradise- "The DJ's take pills to stay awake for seven days." And don't forget the ones for high blood pressure and cholesterol. Oh and that little blue one. Another Har-El effort with a very housey sample. repeated over. And over. Yes I get it. It's your house. And enough about the DJ's and their prescription drug habit. How the hell can a six minute track feel like 12? This track saved this compilation from being woefully average the same way you would save a drowning man by throwing him a piano. Le Voyage Dans Ce Qui Existe- Part two of whatever happened to that guy with a solid closer. It bubbles and makes for some good head nodding. So why does it end abruptly like someone pulled the plug? Let's call it what it is. A very average compilation. A couple of great tracks, a few good ones and then a f*ckton of filler. At least the cover for this one wasn't as bad as the sequel.
