A nice gem released on Ektoplazm today. Since it has a lot of 'Goa' in it, why not share it here as well, I'm sure many of you will like this.

Playing The Presets is the long-lost debut album of Finnish Goa/psy dub band Praktika (Heba & Ripa). The group formed during the recording sessions for Sörkkä Sonic, a collaborative album released in 1996 and attributed to Flippin’ Bixies, the original Finnish Goa trance super-group. Included on that album was Praktika’s earliest song, “Out Of Phase”. Playing The Presets was recorded during the Mutameri Sessions at the legendary Ääniasema Studios (also the home of Gad, M1D1L11TT0, O*men, and Squaremeat) between 1997–1999. This album was scheduled for release in autumn of 1999 on Exogenic Records but all master tapes were lost only to be rediscovered in the vaults of Johtoääni Studios in the summer of 2016. Nobody really knew what have happened and some blame aliens!

All music is from pre-VSTi era when instruments were still made of red and silver plastic. Musically it goes from Goa trance to psy dub to psychedelic world music and Finnish forest funk. Gear used on this album: Roland SH-101, Roland Juno-106, Roland JV-1080, Korg Prophecy, Kurzweil K-2500 with sampling option, Peavey analog delay, Lexicon MPX1, Digitech Multifx, Mackie 2408 Mixer, Roland Alpha Juno 2, PC with Cubase, Sound Forge and Waves native Power Pack cracked by Radium. Credits: written and produced by Praktika with mastering by Heba. Original 3DMAX rendered cover art from 1997 by Mika.

If I was born in Finland, probably I would be Ripa or something without Č or Ć :):P

 

Anyway, I'm still suprised how this release came out of nowhere and it sounds so good :)

Heba actually played a DJ set at our oldschool outdoors goa party this summer. Lots of old and unreleased (if my memory serves me right) Finnish goa/suomisoundi in that set. He didn't mention anything concerning this though, no idea if the lost tapes were discovered before or after the party.

I'l give this a proper listen a bit later. I'm intrigued, that's for sure :)

Well here's a little surprise for us: Heba actually found the master tapes when looking for something to play at the party. So that party of ours was the first time these tracks were played live :o

Not sure about you guys, but I'm having a big time troubles opening this topic from the forum index or seeing it on my mobile phone. Perhaps the reason might be that I used ( – ) instead of ( - ) in topic title. It would be sweet if mod's can replace that in topic title if it's not a problem.

Anyway, here is my review for this really great release: http://www.neogoa.net/playing-the-presets-review/
