I think this is Dwayne Wade from A Different World, but my friend believes it to be Arsenio. Whoever it may be he is right. This is some good ass cheese. Afgin is the man who has released a bunch of free music as well as the uber bright and shiny Astral Experience. At least it's one Israeli making goa.


*looks askew at Astral Projection or the husks of what they used to be* "I don't care, get the f*ck back in that corner! Don't give me that look! Do you even know what you did?"


Afgin delivers the brightest goa trance around no question, but 2009 was over 3 years ago. As Janet said, "What have you done for me lately?" These days he's been crafting a trilogy of music EP's with this one being the final chapter. First let me tell you that I love a lot of music. Love it. Light, dark, happy, fast sad...whatever. It cannot always be dark or you'll end up having a goth child that f*cking hates you and will start following the stars of Twilight around like they were the Grateful Dead. So what Afgin delivers is pure positivity and light. True, it is far removed from Astral Experience and cannot even see Old is Gold in the rearview. Anymore uplifting and I would be looking down on Jesus, and well that's apropos because Afgin could pass for the big guy in a few photos I've seen.


But it's f*cking beautiful. If it was a chick I would try to awkwardly ask it out on a date. Absolutely the most delicious melodic cheese that a trancer could ask for. You can hear every note and every sound. Nothing is hidden and it bares its soul. It's like a sunshine enema that puts a permanent smile on your face. Calling the first two tracks goa trance might be a stretch to some, but he still wields his euphoric kung-fu. Does it get any cheesier than the sample in the tribute to Rocky? Life lessons from Rocky. Reread that sentence again, because it might just destroy the internet. This is the same guy that told a guy who was threatening to blow up a supermarket that it was ok because he didn't shop there. If you didn't love the movie Cobra, then I cannot talk to you.


But he's right. Life is tough and it's not about getting knocked down, but getting up. If the first two tracks were cheesy and fluffy, then the last two are off the cotton candy scale. But that's the thing about Afgin. He's got talent and it doesn't come off as cheese, but rather the soft caress of a lover who means what she says. It's about sharing a sunrise with that special someone, dancing on a melodic carpet until your mouth hurts from smiling so much.


Let's face it, the world we live in ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It sucks sometimes. Hell, I've got Angela Lansbury charging me $1200 for a piece of sh*t table cause she can't find a f*cking decimal point. So yeah, it ain't all sunshine and rainbows. But thanks to Afgin, this is what it would look like if it were.

Great review as usual !


I love Afgin's work ! Track 3 is my favorite of this EP !

Some say that his uplifting project is cheesy, whatever : It's not some disgusting supermarket plastic orange cheedar, it's more like eating the best cheese cake of your life :P
