Oforia - Let It Beat

 

Artist: Oforia

Title: Let It Beat

Label: BNE

Date: 2001

 

Track listing:

 

01. 08'33" Abyssadelic

02. 08'21" Millions Of Miles Away

03. 08'24" Let It Beat

04. 07'40" Into Another Universe

05. 08'41" Alien Pump (Sabotage Mix)

06. 08'20" Gain Bang

07. 07'48" Red Levels

08. 08'04" Lunar Quartet

09. 07'30" Hypnotic

 

Review:

 

First things first; this is more on the house/trancy side.

And that means, a little more cheese than we are used

to. Anyway, he succeeds to create extremly good groovy

beats a some points end then he ruins them by putting

in those damned cheezy sounds and melodies.

As you can see in the tracklist a mix of Tandu - Alien Pump

is made. And it is by far the best track here. You can really

sense the old fashion Tandu track. Even tho the original is better.

Gain Bang and Lunar Quartet are pretty good as well. Not that cheesy

as the first tracks. The last track is better we don't talk about.

Yes, it bad alright!

Final Verdict: 5.7/10

This album is an absolute masterpiece! Ofer is back and is as strong as

ever!!! A little groovier and funkier than his previous stuff. Some will call

it "club trance" as an insult. I LOVE IT! Easily in my top 3 for 2001.

 

Infectious and Lestat are both right - Ofer's music is growing and is fresh -

no one sounds even remotely like him, nor does he sound like anyone else. The

most impressive thing to me is the perfect balance of diversifying and

expanding his style while still keeping the qualities of his sound that we

have come to know and love him for - The deep and crazy basslines, metallic

synths and those perfectly placed melodies that flutter in and out of

everything.

 

In short, a 10/10 from me. Favs are 1,2,3,6, and 7, but all are excellent!

Get this now!

Hey people, what's up to you?! Do you talk of the same album I do? I can't

believe what Oforia has done to all true oldschool psy-trance lovers out

there... cheese fluffy house sounds!! Ok this album might be good produced -

but hey, If you all knew the productions Oforia did years before (and wow,

which amazing tracks he did!) - you start to think Oforia takes you for a

ride! What is this shit??

 

Track 4 - Into Another Universe AAAAHHHH, what's this? I always hated the

simplest repetitive rhythms and melodies of house, and now I think I've bought

an house CD mixed with some Oforia-effects... NOOO tell me this is only a

NIGHTMARE... :((((

 

Stop with this housy, minimal and 'progressive' sound (a question, how can

minimal sounds and monotonous beats be a PROGRESSION over a oldschool

masterpiece of sound, which covers the whole musical spectrum, has loads of

changes and intelligent breaks, interesting, wicked, sometimes scary sounds,

rich musical influences while it's still kicking and danceable?! - ok, if

you'd ask me, I would SAY that's because many artisits now realise that they

can make more money with this kind of sound, because it's more easy to listen

also for 'normal' people ... SHAME ON ALL OF YOU! You're on the best way of

ruining the spirit of goatrance! Last words: I have been attending to goa

trance parties for 7 years now and I'm sad to say that with all this 'new'

minimal, progressive, technoish influences psytrance loses its magic from one

of the most interesting, inspiring, mystical, spiritual and mind-opening sound

it used to be, now to a music genre like any other played in clubs 3 days a

week! Just look at the 'new' people who are coming to goaparties more and

more - full-on over-drugged, impolite, egoistic and no spirit (like in the

Techno-Scene for some years now) - and in my opinion that's majorly because of

those artists want to sell more copies of their productions, so they go a

commercial direction with their sound - and with them dies the goafamily!

DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN !

 

P.S. The true underground psychedelic trance will NEVER NEVER die!

 

Peace & Sunshine for all of you

This is a really refreshing album. True it's not Goa, I love Goa, but this will

do too. It's a mixture of sound that seems to be like the old school 4/4 beat

and progression of Trip to Transyvannia Xdream and a bountiful crop of new

sounds some melodic and some not. It's not an album that one who likes very

evident buildups to immediately get. Instead it takes repeated listens to

really appreciate the album. All I can say is that I think that is a

refreshing album in a sea of minimalistic and on the other end clubby

releases. However I too would like to see Ofer return to the Goa roots, you

Tandu, Sound Pollution, Indoor, Inscape sounds. Those were the days.

this album is very different.... i thought the remix of alien pump was amazing,

while the rest was listenable but i soon forgot it... so i dunno, its not

cheesy in my book but also not that memorable... oforia has seen better days,

a bit of the fun was lost in this album...

2nd cd released in arow that is complete tripe. Ive seen this geezer player and

he has some stompers up his sleeve, just dont know why he doesnt release them.

Getting a bit scared of the direction of psy trance these days-its really

going downhill.

Oforia's best album, very mature, the metallic sounds are back! The first 2

tracks are clubby influenced, from track 3 to the track 8 all the tracks are

veeeery good, total Isralien style, Harmonies, killer drum, you can

identificate all the sounds clearly... Hey Ofer, good vibes from Brasil. Best

tracks: 8; 6; 5; 7. Obs: The single brings the Millions of miles away remixed

by Infected Mushroom, and it is GREAT, SOUNDS OF PARADISE!!

Good album but he could have done it slightly better...He's got great skills

that he just misses here...His first album - Delirious was mindblowing

psychedelic trance experience...His second one - Off The Ground was good as

well, slightly weaker than first and this one is just weakest...What ever

happend to Oforia and his unique style ? The Bets on album ; INTO ANOTHER

UNIVERSE, ALIEN PUMP ( ! ), GAIN BANG ( ! ), RED LEVELS...7/10

"I find that I cannot think of Earth in the same way since I've been in space."

Ugh...listening to this again is like trying to choke down a pinecone.  That's still attached to the tree.  And the Alien Pump remix?  A simple full-on neutering of a classic.  I wasn't into psy 16 or 17 years ago when this came out so I cannot say how this went down with the masses, but I can tell you that it does not stand the test of time.
