2018 already counts 4 months now and we've had a few excellent goa releases and albums so far. But this one takes the crown!

And honestly, I have never come across a goa compilation, ever, that is so varied, fresh and full of wonderful energetic monsters.
Timewarp is a sublabel of Ovnimoon, a parent label that is less and less shy of incorporating goa elements or even full flash goa tracks in their comps and albums. The Timewarp sublabel focuses on goa, with da master Nova Fractal in charge.

Together with DJ Lurfilur, Nova Fractal has compiled a two-discer full of new school goa trance.
I never heard of DJ Lurfilur before, but he's Swedish, seems to know his game and he's wearing a Suntrip t-shirt on his discogs photo.. Can't go wrong there. :-)

When it comes to goa compilations, there always tends to be some filler tracks on there that you skip anyways. Just to get to the good stuff.
But The Call Of Goa Vol. 3 is none of that.

It's a Tyrannosaurus Rex of a compilation!

This compilation is filled with class act, addictive, perfectly made GOA trance. The mastering is ace, nothing sounds bland or harsh. It's all energy from start to finish.
All new school heroes are present here: Nova himself, Hypnoxock, Median Project, Clementz, Omnivox, Omneon, Cactus Arising, ... you can see the tracklist. It's amazing.
But the music behind the tracklist is even more amazing. All artists showcase their talent and the best they've got. The tracks tell a story and actually go somewhere. High.

Including some newer names such as Consept Lightwork and Persia Vibe. All good.

And ending with a 160 BPM crazy twister from The Maniac just tops it off. Even though it's ridiculously fast, it works!!

I can't go and detail every single track here, since it's impossible and it has no use.

Goa trance compilations have a new standard now, and Timewarp has set it right here, right now.

Get this one if you even remotely like goa trance. It's just perfect and will make you smile for more than two hours! :D

Been dabbling in and out of this comp since it's release. I cant even count how many shattered bandcamp hearts i've created. You're review has tipped me though, gonna buy later today.

 

The Zopmanika track is straight bliss, probably the standout for me. Sykespico nails it too. I'm normally a little disappointed when an artists single strays from their latest album, Hypnoxock breaks that wall down like it's 1989, track is stellar and it's great to him sticking with Goa. 

You're right about all these artists really starting to cement their place as new school heroes. Probably why Compilations are coming out so hot at the moment

I just did a re-listen to CD 1. I appreciate Cactus, Siam, Innerself and Concept on another level now. Instead of flowing their leads through the rest of the track elements it feels like they drop it down from above like lighting. Cutting through all the layers. The way they position their tracks is pretty hot.

I'm hearing different stuff too when I listen to it over and over again. When it seems like just another goa comp, it really isn't!
There are more layers and intellect to it. Hot stuff here.  :D
