Haha, I just find it funny how you describe it as humorous. But I guess I can understand why some folks aren't a big fan, it did take me several listens to actually start enjoying his first album.

I feel the same way as you about E-mantra. Though i must admit there is alot of quality to it, it's some of the most psychedelic music i've ever heard. I've listened to it a bunch of times already but i still haven't gotten it, i reall hope i will some day :)

E-mantra psy downtempo on Altar Records is very good :)

For me it was the other way around. Posford was one of my favorite artists as a teen, but I grew to dislike his music more and more. The first Shpongle album made me realize why. It's like the worst imaginable Psy equivalent to Viking Metal.

New school goa is already quite varied and colourful, by no means just floating and formulaic. There's no particular reason to make it "darker".

Dude, Prana overproduced? In what universe? I need an explanation. :)

 

I think I get his point. Prana tunes are many times layered with a lot of sounds and rhythms making it a bit stressed. It's a matter of taste really. I like some of the Prana tunes a lot and some I also find too over-layered.

Wow! Amazing how opinions differ to the extreme. I consider the 1st Shpongle album nothing less than a milestone in music history, including all ages, decades and genres. It's a pure vision made into sound. It's serious alien music for home listeners.

That's why it's called taste. The world would be so boring and predictable if we all agreed. I liked the first one (Got it from Simon on a DAT before it got released) but the rest of the releases sound too cheesy for my taste and also when you know where many of the samples comes from it's not so "magical" any longer.

If I know where the sample comes from and that source is related to the music, as in it makes sense and perfectly add to the track not only as sample but also with samples background(where the sample comes from), then it might add to the sensation for me.

 

Another unpopular opinion - its still uneasy for me to accept that Radi is real person :D!

Hmm, yep it's interesting how taste change over time.

I find Digitalis much more interesting than Shakta :P

I agree ! I wish people made more psybreaks, that style had a lot of good things with it.

- Full-on is good. Especially the melodic/morning kinds of it. Especially melodic/morning tracks made between 2003-2010.

- Some Ananda Shake tracks are excellent.

- Not all Electro Sun tracks are vomit-inducing.

Newly made tunes mimicking the dated sound of old school goa make no sense to me. What a waste. We have such sharp sounds now, so much cool stuff you can do with the tools available and it sounds so fresh... The vibe of old school can easily be kept in the song-writing, there's no need to intentionally make it sound date.

So many releases like this. It's heartbreaking to think what could be.

Never liked Infected Mushroom. Still don't understand the hype.

Absolutely loathe anything downtempo, hitech, psycore.

That's why I got tired of it. It's 2018 but people still keep making it dirty and amateurish like in 94, whats the point? For me it's shame to have badly mixed, dirty sounding track today with all free tools around. Don't get it...

Well maybe they have fun making it that way (not talking about mixing but the general tones/sounds)

Full On didn't kill old school Goa. Prog and minimalism did.

It was Prog that first pushed Goa aside for a minimalistic and clubby sound. Full On only followed 1-2 years later. So  the next time you wanna blame Full On for the downfall of the scene think again.

BTW That was a fact, not an an opinion :P

Here comes the unpopular opinion.

Son Kite, Ticon and the whole Digital Structures label was beyond terrible.

The first Ticon, Son Kite, and XV Kilist albums are not good.

Once they dropped the dark minimalism and got more sparkly, the music improved greatly...
