There are so many GOA releases this year, its taken over what style I buy the most of now.

 

Anyways, just doing some searching and apart from the bigger labels or things I have seen through artist news and labels section has anyone heard these? Just wanted some feedback if you have to whether they are worth grabbing? Someone say both PSY & GOA though for styles...?

Tengri is very nice. However, I don't get where the "goa" tag is coming from. It's very much a downtempo release. It hardly exceeds 110 BPM, possibly with the exception of Dance of the Crow whose breaky rhythm may count as 140 or so. No straight trance there anyway.

 

But within its actual genre, it's one of the better releases this year - deep, shamanistic, sort of organic, doesn't try to jump too much on Shpongle or dubstep bandwagons or whatever. It's not exactly chillout either as it's more wilderness than Ibiza. Try the samples, at least. It delivers a solid album if you like the style.

Thanks team, good input... Is Luna Nova still available anywhere?

 

Manuser - For some reason I cant open any links to other psynews pages. Must be my work PC.

I just listened to Manju yesterday. It's similar to Glowing Flame records style. It's full on with goa elements and a touch of forest. It reminds me of Yudhisthira and Imaginary Sight only less melodic. It's good, nothing that blew my mind though.

I have Tavi and it's a nice album, nothing groudbreaking but overall there are some nice tracks and melodies, specially at the end of the album - 'Neptune' is a great track and 'Cosmo Elephant' is pretty nice too. kinda like Amithaba buddha meets Mindsphere meets E-mantra.

Luna Nova is OK but i'm not much of a V.A albums fan.

I'm also pretty bored musicly and would love some recomendations, I feel like Iv'e listened to pretty much everyhing (Goa wise) and I think I invest like 2-3 hours weekly just to find new and decent stuff to listen to (again - only Goa).
