Hello people. As you might know, there is in Japan a discrete niche that Goa/psytrance occupy among the otaku culture. Psytrance is often used in anime and video game circles, as Japan have a rich tradition in terms of EDM inherited from the 90's (they keep alive the spirit of eurobeat, makina, goa trance, etc.) Hence, it is not surprizing that some Touhou (東方) circles have done some Goa arrangements for the OST of this famous series of video games. Here is the theme of Yoshika, a zombie girl that is one of the numerous characters featured in the Touhou universe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaw8WyORAZY There was two Goa arrangements for this theme. The first one is from Distant Phantasm. It's the most recent, and explore the phantomatic/sinister tone of the theme with a piece of experimental Goa that recalls a lot the spirit of the NeoGoa release Celestial Transvibrations. The sounds are raw, distorted, utterly psychedelic, and slightly nitzho-idal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCFyfSjnK9k Distortion waves at 05:17. The second one is from another circle called Sound Holic. It is a piece of euphoric Goa trance that include elements of full-on, eurodance and J-pop, but remains definitely 604. It makes me think in Omegahertz, in some way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_nNBxot4CQ I like the acid loops at 00:56. My question is : which of both do you prefer ?
