Timewarps latest goa compilation, including a DJ Mix. Let's gooooo!!!


Jaraluca:

What an opener of this fine compilation. Jaraluca presents a goa monster with a deep bassline and fantastic synth lines.
Gradually the track intensifies as the synths go crazy. The synths carry the track. It is so cleverly made. Real climactic goa trance with a hypnotic feel to it. Love it!
Boy, would I love to hear it at a party. Jos? :D

Fiery Dawn:

Fiery Dawn's contribution is a slow starter and a rather linear track. Although it gets a bit more interesting after the 6 min mark, it's not a (big) climax.
It's an easier track to rest a bit. I was hoping for some surprises, but I'm left hungry.

Clementz:


Hints of acid hypnotically injecting your brain. This sounds good! Gradually the track goes into melodic style while keeping the acid lines in the background.
Quite a relaxing and pleasant morning track here, but when played out loud could cause some damage in the final run where everything comes together.


Nervasystem:


Shit, this is a demonous track. Slowly it grabs you, hypnotizes you. There are pads, acid blips, whatever you want. But they're connected in such a way
that a hypnotizing track is made. One hypnotizing section after another. Not sure why the voice is talking about some molecule called ribos instead of ecstacy. Ha!
Wonderful blistering finale where synths meet pads meet acid!

Mania:

Shit, why does this have to sound like it's 1996? I mean, the ingredients are there. Spiralling synths, a rolling bassline...
But the kick is so dry and pale. There is not enough thickness in the track for me to really enjoy it.
Guess that's the oldschool vs newschool thingie. I miss the deeeeep bass.
Not bad, but not my style.

Proxeeus:

Yes, fucking yes. We have reached the 10 min long holy grail of this compilation. Ladies and chaps, Proxeeus is here!
Where on his 2 albums he mainly explores (successfully) 303 sounds, this track has it all. Dancefloor madness it is.
Right from the first second I am immersed in overwhelming sounds. Then the bassline crushes my skull.
The goa train has left the station! Lots of laser sounds and lovable melodic synths is what this track is all about.
The personality of this track is immense. It's like Proxeeus had a vision, a thought, and melted it into music.
Only the truly blessed can do this.
Oh yes, and there is acid 303 madness too. Lots of them. :D
Jos! Play this shit at OiG XXII. Omg I die.

Melodeep:

A sweet oriental-influenced goa number surrounded by acid. Makes me think of Antares or Ra 9th Style.
Very sweet on the ears and definitely on repeat here. Lots of details in the background if you listen carefully.
The melody comes into play at certain points in the track and give it a very personal feel. I catch myself humming it after a while.
Likey!

Clementz:

Clementz hits hard with this track from the start. Hardly no intro, just cuts right to the chase.
Fantastic goa synths are all over the place, carried by deep basswork. I would go nuts on the dancefloor!
Aqueous sounds and acid blips push the track forward into the next mayhem. Yep, dance material here. Ace!

Atlantis:

I'm gonna admit it right away. I'm in love with this track. It doesn't go crazy with loud chaotic sounds.
No, it exists and intrigues purely because of its hypnotising ability. The bassline is very addictive and always present.
My head is nodding up and down because of it.
The bassline is surrounded by acid and bubbles and this for more than 9 minutes.
It's an unstoppable bulldozer. Grooovy!

Spectrum, Ion Vader:

A pussy would end an uptempo compilation with a downtempo track. But DJ Lurfilur is not a pussy. No sir.
Another uptempo goa track to finish the album.
Perhaps it is the madness of the former tracks that leaves me unimpressed with this last track.
Very instrumental, sterile and linear. Not strong, but good for winding down from what we've heard before.

DJ MIX

A a bonus, we get a DJ Mix by DJ Lurfilur, who mixes all these tracks together for a good hour of non stop goa madness.
And a well crafted mix it has become. Congrats man!

Conclusion: A must have compilation. Timewarp is sometimes hit and miss, but this is a hit. And DJ Lurfilur has proven to be a connoisseur of compiling goa albums. Hail!

Sorry I haven´t read this review until now!! But yeee, thanks for the big words you are giving me Aspartic!!

Compilation didn´t become as I had planned from the beginning, but with this rollercoaster energy feeling it describes my feeling for goa trance. It doesn´t have to be 100% full acid power to be good enough to go wild.

This compilation is like a flower, it´s growing, become strong and solid like a beatiful developed flower, like a astonishing waterlilly on a mirrored water surface in the warm the evening sun. It´s embracing your soul, litterally.

I can happily say that there are more to come. I´m currently working with Timewarp Records to create a bigger follow up to this compilation. But this will happen in 2019...

To buy complete compilation (mix included), visit to Beatport. But soon enough I think I will let the mix go free as a download on my Soundcloud and Mixcloud pages where I continously post mixes. Please visit if you want to follow my work. :)

@Lurfilur, why not add your mix of the VA as the 11th track on Bandcamp? *sorry got no review, only this Q.

Anyone else think it's time for a Clementz album?  Proxeeus and Atlantis also slay.

I find Clementz one of the most interesting of a generally promising crew releasing on Timewarp and Global Sect (inc Atlantis, Median, Centavra, etc). 

Not unhappy they are taking this route though. I think it's better to get to a really good level before your first LP. Better to do a Celestial Intelligence than a Psy-H Project.

 

Old mate Proxeeus is the winner on this one. That guy is the poster child for strong improvement over time.

600 mb limit per file

Quote

What’s the maximum upload size?

It starts out at 291MB per track, which is of course the exact size of “Inamorata and Narration by Conrad Roberts” from side 4 of Miles Davis’ Live-Evil (assuming we’re talking 16/44.1, which we always are). Once you’ve made a few sales through Bandcamp (totaling $20 USD or more), we increase the max per-track upload size to 600 megs. There is no limit on the size of albums.
