Yes. We finally did it. We got all (almost , but really a lot of!) the oldies. And they are unmixed! :)


You will find in this massive compilation all the songs from that album including the very well sought after Astral Plains remix.


Eternal Life and Lunar Stains are included + many others.


We're not releasing the Sugar Rush remix because we all know the original and the remix is not much different so we decided to leave that one.



Unfortunately as you would expect most of the songs came from mp3 files. And yes they did.


We mastered some , some others we didn't do anything except levelling them up because they already had seem to be maximized and mastered in a way by Filipe when the songs were made and mastering on top of already mastered songs it really would make things worse believe us.


So , what do we think?


We think the songs are in acceptable good quality but most of Filipe's old work just simply sounds old and muddy but not because of it came from an mp3 file but because it was produced that way and no mastering can fix that.



Yoga , Psyramid and Mental Maze were previously released by us and you can find them in these releases :


Yoga (original mp3 sourced) and Mental Maze (original wav sourced) : https://gooddancerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/three-moons-and-one-shrine


Psyramid (original wav sourced) : https://gooddancerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/emotions-from-a-beija-flor





Apart from the old Buddha tracks , there is also another old unreleased Pandemonium song also coming from mp3 and we thought it would be worth a release aswel.


There were a few others but nothing special really. We also tried to grab hold of the Amithaba Buddha - Solaris song but seems the file was corrupted by other previously used hard drives so it's just impossible to bring that one up. If Filipe finds it in a cdr we will release it but we really don't have hopes for that one and we apologise to the fans of that song.


Lost in a Crystal Sphere unfortunately also couldn't be released because it seems to only exist in a mixed version and you can find that in the Phototropic Records release.

Denaris , Beast 303 , Drunk Pharaoh and Chemic Lab are originally Wav files.


We know some people really were after these really old songs for years and we apologise for the originally sourced mp3 files but this is the best we could honestly do.


Hope these songs will bring you much enjoyment and make many people happy once more.


Kind regards ,


Good Dance Recordings.



Total time : 2hours and 51minutes

That bassline is amazing. And what a track in general. More like that please, I know it's an oldie but damn so good.

 

Can you mention the years of the specific tracks? Would be interesting.

Believe us Filipe did think a lot of you he really wanted to make you happy with this. He had been 'scavenging' his old CDrs in bags (a lot of rubbish really he says lol) and checking the content in them for days! Wasn't easy to him to get them back and we're really happy to have these back up and he's happy too because he knew you loved that track a lot. :)

It's all up now and he's not gonna bother with this stuff again.

Filipe doesn't remember the years , he says this is probably all from 2004 to 2007 as it's in Discogs.

The Lunar Stains and Eternal Life probably being the earliest he'd made. He remembers playing it at some small party in portugal. Really young at the time. The fullon sound was the mainstream and there was resistance from people to accept the goa sound again at the time. So he kinda pushed on the bassline thing in those 2 and that's why they kinda sound they way they sound lol :)

Transfiguration was done by the same time he says. This was probably god knows 2002-03? He really doesn't remember but he was still living in portugal he migrated to the UK in 2004 so these are really early. He was in Portugal when he done all those so now that he thinks of it they are probably even earlier than 2004. 2005 was when he was first released in Suntrip Records. He remembers by the time of Apsara he remembers being in the UK but the song was made before migration. Maybe that's why the song was named ' Metamorphosis' . Check his discogs it can help. :)

He remembers producing Embryo when he settled in the UK so that means Regeneration was probably the same.

No he actually did!

He knows Penzoline had been after this song for a long time believe us lol funny or not it may seem Filipe actually did. He just wants to make everybody happy that's all. He doesn't care anymore. He's just giving away all his stuff.

That was really early. He remembers he had used Reason 2.0 or something entirely for that track. :)

 

He says that by the time there weren't many tb303 proper vsts so metamorphosis was basically reason with rebirth and his old work was mostly done with a muon tau 2 , pro52 or something ... the age of old plugins. He had a pentium 3 by the time 600 something mhz and that was after he did psyramid and mental maze were pulled off a 233mhz pentium 2. he says the 3XOSC from fruity loops 3-5max that all the machine could handle. And the smallest plugins nowadays would be a huge monster to such machines. Less is more to him anyways and he loves it.

 

He prefers the old machines to the new ones. He thinks that being limited forces you to think more and be more creative with what you have. At least to him it did and it still does.

New technology makes him lazy. It's so easy to him.

He can pull a goa song with 26-27 patterns , the last one being the automation only in FL Studio. We seen it. Mana Source believe it or not. That was the challenge he put to himself and he did it LOL!

To him it was like imagine you are stuck with an hardware sequencer that can only hold certain amount of memory? What are you going to do?

So he kinda imagined that and emulated the whole thing lol :) and on top of that he pulls nearly entertaning non repetitive 8 minutes with few amount of patterns. He's good.

He says : i'll give and put this challenge to all goa producers out there. try making and pulling a goa song with less than 30 patterns then you will see.
