Shikoon is about producing images in the mind that are far from identical. Rather than a pure psy dub piece of music Shikoon is challenging with numerous break downs, phrases, phat beats, skanking stabs and synth sounds that are beautifully arranged at almost every Middle Eastern turn of the sonic page."

Orientalism in Trance - What's all about it?
Guest posted a topic in General PsytranceBack in the old days, psychedelic trance was in good shape. We had trust on it over its developing variations based on artists sound developments. However, with the rise of nitzhonot trance, around 1999, i felt a deviation from the essential spirit. Nitzhonot was a step away from the style of greek/israeli uplifting goa trance (nitzho-Goa), into a more commercial sound with usually major influences from arabic/middle-eastern oriental music. Let's not forget that beyond symbolisms, hindu traditional music's tone and pattern has been not just an influence but more like a generator of goa trance music, more like gave shape. But between these, there's a difference in perception. In Hindu traditional music, a hypnotic and mystical feeling can oftenly be met or achieved (which is essential for the spirit of Goa Trance), while middle-eastern orientalism is more known for a cheerful uplifting rousement, and oftenly causing a more lighthearted mood. Of course, i'm sure that might be few exceptions to that and without even counting the Sufism musical heritage which is something different as far as i know. As different also is ancient egyptian music, which is more solemn & majestic oftenly inducing melancholic or nostalgic feelings. So, does arabic/middle-eastern/belly-dance music fits in goa trance? I believe that mostly doesn't. But that's depends also from the sound and the motives. There are examples of synthesis from the old days in goa and nitzho-goa of a good harmonizing and lately i have liked alot the second album from Mindsphere, Patience for Heaven, which has such influences but more temperate and covered in an amazing surrounding goa trance sound. Of course, all these are my personal view and from what i have seen, it is a matter of "love it" or "hate it" preference. Maybe, central & northern europeans or americans see middle eastern orientalism as more exotic, as a diversion on ethic influences.
