But Russia is more than just Putin's plaything, oh no, it has a lot of good trance to offer. So is this compilation worth your time? Can they put down the vodka long enough to make some good tracks?

 

Dance of the morning sun (Bukara rmx vs G-Light)- We begin with the full-on effort from G-light, who shows a talent for mixing the electronic and acoustic. There's plenty of lasers to go around, so no need to shove. High speed and lots of layers. I liked it, but there was no subtlety...it just kinda all came out at once.

 

Under glass- Alexander used to part of Manifold but now he does his own thing. This was an awesome twilight track with deep rumbling bass and eerie pads. Bubbling and changes of direction are well received. Dare I call this a stormer?

 

Story- This is the guys from Neospherix Project who were boring the crap outta me until around the 4 minute mark when they laid down a nice synth arpeggio. It's a little ravey though.

 

Solar System Part 2- His album Lost In Time is one of the greatest moments in goa trance history. Yeah, I said it. It was recently re-released so I hope you got a chance to check it out. This isn't goa, but twilight. Pretty good too with a bunch of power, acid, and lasers. Another winner.

 

Fullomatic Motions- Never heard of this project but I bet their last names en in ov. More twilight music with metallic leads and a rumbling bass line. It's not bad, but it does this stop thing and then gradually increases the speed. Not for me.

 

Syndrom- "He's got one inside of him...I can smell it."

 

Edward is now running this project solo and he combines horror movie samples with searing leads. He relies heavily on the "what's inside me" sample...maybe too much. Sounds like late 90's industrial EBM at times, but not bad. Dark.

 

What's Inside Me- Shouldn't this have been the name of the last track? This guy hasn't released anything for a while and it's a shame because this is some powerful stuff. Nonstop and unrelenting twilight intensity. Loved it. I did not know you had it like that!

 

Neosphere- What the f*ck are you hanging out on a farm in rural Mississippi? Pigs, chickens, southern black man talking. Then it breaks into a boogie woogie shuffle and I'm thinking this has to be a joke. I like jokes. But this is unlistenable.

 

Funkadelic- Whoever this is could take a dump and record it and it would already be better than the last track. Luckily they didn't have to go that far and just made a track with rampaging synths and layers.

 

 

Not bad. Some of these tracks are worth checking out. It's definitely in the twilight style. And they seem to hold up pretty well.

P.S. I don't know what's going on with the tracklist at Psyshop. The one I got was from Discogs.
