Review:

 

Probably one of the first records of psy-trance that created the

sound that we know today. In 1993 this compilation sounded so incredible

and different that I think this is a classic record that should be owned

by every serious psy-trance dj or collectionist.

Have you ever seen a birth ?

This is the goa birth....1993, the very first Goa tracks. We can feel the

transition between 1992/1993 technotrance and GoaTrance. Of course it's not as

professional as others releases some years later, but it's very interesting.

First track is Gumbo (aka Simon Postford Hallucinogen), nice, it sounds like a

Laurent Garnier track ! Then the well known gentic-trancemission and another

track from genetic, oracle. Track 4 is Total Eclipse from.....total eclipse

(it seems that they were only two at this moment), I like the intro with this

analogic synth sound (Prophet V ?). Then a Blak sun track (basic). Track 6 is

Infinity Project-Feeling Weird (engineered by martin freeland aka

ManwithNoName !), this track is very good, very psychedelic. Then a Mandra Goa

(aka Johan Bley) track, Track 8 is blackSun-The more you look the more you see

(you know that ?),a very weird track with electric sounds, then 1000 micro

dats,then another Mandra Goa track. Track 11 is Deezal Electric (put an old

rythm box in you cellar and you will get Deezal Electric, what to say

else....herr....) then the last track which is another 1000 micro dats.

So first part of this compilation is good, the other part a little bit boring,

anyway the whole compilation is very interesting and I agree with fluoro, if

you have a collection, you must have this compilation...just to remember how

all that incredible music has begun.

Along with Juno's "Transmissions",

this is probably the first psy

album, and I'm pretty sure the

first compilation. And you know

something? It still sounds damn

good! Look at this lineup, the

first Simon Posford track, the

first Total Eclipse (short but

sweet), two Mandragoras (I prefer

this version of "Wicked Warp" to

the Rmx), a stormer from The

Infinity Project, two Black Suns

(one great, the other mediocre),

and two from Jens Walderbeck (of

Juno/Cwithe fame). But the best

tracks are the ones by Genetic,

"Transmissions" with it's gorgeous

eastern scales and Cops sample,

and "Oracle" which has to be the

most hypnotic track I've ever

heard. I love this album. Don't

be put off by it's age, it's

timeless... 8/10

It's really cool to listen how it all started and to own the 1st trax of artists

who would become famous a few years after this release. It's not only a very

special compil, it's also a pretty good one! Order this album before it really

becomes sold out!

I ordered it from recordstore.co.uk. It was on stock, no problem !

Yeah, it still sounds very psychedelic actually, even weirder than some minimal

stuff you can find nowadays, no joke ! It's funny to clearly recognize the

style of S. Posford and even more the Total Eclipse touch behind these early

releases.

I bought it to have the "first" Psy Trance compilation in my collection, and

now I'm listening to it for good music ! So, don't hesitate to get this first

baby.

It's the sign of quality music when you still listen to it over 10 years later. It has been 13 years since I first heard this and I still listen to it quite regularly. Definately one of the best compilations of all time. Every track is great. I also liked Technical use of sound in Magic but that had one weak track. All these are great and really reflect well upon the era. It's the 1st CD of psy trance that I listened to and the 1st one I bought and I'm so glad

 

1 Gumbo : The Quickening

 

Nice chiming sounds. Ethereal vocals and quality old school synths make up the best part of this. It's around 9 minutes long but it doesn't get boring ever. Very nice opener.

 

2 Genetic : Trancemission

 

This track has still got to be in my favourite 5 tracks ever. I just wish that it was longer. All the sounds in this are perfect, the beat is great, the vocal are kinda trippy. It was this track that really made my ears prick up that fateful evening. And for me this has aged like a fine wine. I actually think it's better now than when I first heard it and there are not many tracks I could say that about. 4 minutes in the synths lead into the most beautiful melody I've heard and I always want to rewind it and play it again. MASTERPIECE!!

 

3 Genetic : Oracle

 

Nice monotonous but leading track. It's all pretty similar to itself but the key changes slowly build the track into a nice trippy piece. Great for altered states as I remember.

 

4 Total Eclipse : Total Eclipse

 

Fast beat but a really floaty background. An amazing early Total Eclipse track. It's short but it doesn't dissapoint, it's old and that's good. This really sounds like it's from the early 90's (especially the vocal "Total Eclipse" sample) and it's a great memory.

 

5 Black Sun : Godstar (Sirrius Mix)

 

Very Synthy track. Not my favourite on the compilation but it fits in very well. It's quite repetitive in that 'lasts forever when your out of it' kind of way. It has nice subtle sounds in the background that you don't notice until you realsie they've been there all along. Good stuff.

 

6 The Infinity Project : Feeling Weird

 

Yes, I am feeling very weird. Another track that is impressive enough to stand out on a stand out album. A very spacey, trippy oh my head's going to implode sort of track. Nothing short of brilliance.

 

7 Mandra Gora : Gypsy Trance

 

This is an interesting more industrial sounding track with an air of empty space. It moves nicley and never loses it's energy. Stops and picks up well in places. Solid chilling or moving about track.

 

8 Black Sun : The More You Look The More You See

 

Sample's the I have a dream speech at the start and slowly builds up to....a kick as track that you couldn't even remember kicking in. Great. Quality use of a xylophone (I think) sound in quite a crazy Im just hitting it kind of way and the sound of an electric guitar. This track seems to have everything crushed into and loads of semi hidden background sounds to. Trully with this track the more you look (or listen) the more you see (well hear).

 

9 1000 Micro Dats : The Centre

 

This one sounds very bleepy. Nice beats and subtle synths and a very bleepy melody. A few sounds that sound eat static-esque bring this one alive.

 

10 Mandra Gora : Wicked Warp

 

Another classic here. I loved the unfinshed, unrefined feel of this track. Cool breakdown sounds and wicked entrancing sounds. Quite acid and very trippy this one. The pace keeps changing and doesn't let your head sit still. Another stand out.

 

11 Deezal Electric : Moth

 

Opens up with tough heavy beats. This track really doesn't feel like it's going anywhere but it like it might. It has that monotonous and repetitiveness to eat where it always feels like when it can be bothered it will. So you're listening to it in anticipation. Just before 4 minutes it changes into the exact same thing. Different sounds but just the same feeling. Strangely good.

 

12 1000 Micro Dats : Underworld

 

Quite a short closing track, but it fits a lot into it. Unfortunately my CD skips a little bit in the middle of this track which to be honest annoys the fuck out of me. Quite atmospheric in places, it's a godd close to a great compilation.

 

So this compilation isn't just for collectors who want one of the 1st Goa comps, it's also a quality piece of music. I still enjoy it so many years after I was lucky enough to hear it and it has a very special place in my heart. If you see it I recommend you buy it as it is a quality trip down memory lane. If you were on the scene when it started you'll love this. If not you mind think it sounds dated but who cares. It might be old but it's all good - great - fanfuckintastic.
