In Exile is a special mix composed by DJ Basilisk for Global Goa Party 2, a virtual party organized by Marsh at the Goat Ranch, a flashpoint for old school Goa trance fandom. The concept is simple enough: gather up a bunch of seasoned old school veterans and have them mix up a full night of music just as if it were some point in the not-so-distant past. The first event—for which I produced the Moonshadow tribute mix—brought us back to 1999. This time we travel back to the year 1996, smack dab in the middle of the Golden Age of Goa trance. Bill Clinton is in the White House, Boris Yeltsin is in the Kremlin, the reigning human chess champion is defeated by a computer for the first time, and tantalizing evidence of life on other worlds captures headlines around the world. I am merely 15 years old, not yet fully initiated into the world of psychedelic trance, although the groundwork is already laid by my adolescent fascination with industrial music, cyberpunk fiction, and early dial-up BBSes. One of the aims of the Global Goa Party project is to provide an experience for those of us who did not have the good fortune to attend psytrance parties back in the day—myself included! (I first heard DJ Nivoc play Goa trance in April of 1996 but had no idea what was going on at the time.) For the 2:00am to 3:30am time slot I did my best to build from a hypnotizing introduction to a seething, storming climax, taking care to end on a high note. Working on this mix while travelling in Thailand has been extraordinarily difficult, and I have faced numerous hardships in having it prepared in time for the big radio broadcast, but I managed to pull it off while in a self-imposed exile—hence the title. This mix was recorded on four decks in a jungle bungalow just outside Thongsala on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand, with a pair of headphones (no monitors or other speakers), my humble laptop, a first generation Korg Nanokontrol, and Traktor 1.1.1. Enjoy this blast from the past!

Another fantastic mix!


The Regenerate and Moonshadow mixes have been in constant rotation ever since they appeared on Ektoplazm, this one may just face the same destiny.
