omg paul i love you! that was my favorite kickdrum for a LOOONG time. although i liked the Gnocchi remix version better.
back in 1999 and early 2000s this song was in my top 5!

the 303 is savage.

man i remember when i used to hang on the same community (remember when communities was a thing?) as miranda and we used to chat. she even gave me a kickdrum as a gift. 

i still have it to this day. here it is:

if you examine it you can see it was given to me in 2006

i nominate hallucinogen thugs in tye-dye.

pleiadians - vimana is also worth a mention. no one ever does these long kickdrums that take up the whole bottom end anymore.

i also quite like "normal psy kicks", so nova fractal - mass extinction is nice.

and if we're looking beyond goa trance, i'd say protoculture - silicon sunrise or prometheus - drug sock.

gnocchi is legendary. both the kick and the acidline.

though i have heard the same kick afterwards on some compilation of proto-goa tracks. (sort of like project ii trance), but i cannot remember which track it was. so i'm pretty sure miranda samples the kick from there.

Gnocchi's kickdrum is a bit too loud for my taste.

I am a big fan of this kind of kickline (Oforia - Maximiser), quite typical but very frank and perfect harmony with the rest of the track:

I've also always liked the kickdrums on Prometheus' 2 first albums, especially this

And this too (dancefloor tested by me this summer, worked) :)

Curious. Because I have a same kickdrum sample and he was downloaded long time ago from the website of Billy Cosmosis, when he shared his samples and VST presets. But sample has another name - Phat Kick.

My favorites is kickdrums used by Chi-A.D. e.g. from Zero Barrier or Transparent Sea. From the recent past: E-Mantra's Leviathan. In 2015 he sounded like a was crafted in another world.

Thank you for the explanation, Astral Projection, I believe in your words and Miranda's gift, and source of kickdrum does not matter, it is non material object. Seems it was a bad idea to write previous post. Anyway, situation are cute. Cheers

silicon sound is always top. not only the production but also musically. so it's really sad that he probably won't make another psy lp.

his latest "psy" was more like techtrance and his newest release is house. it doesn't look good for another silicon sound album.

I go with Miranda too nevertheless i don't think a track in particular ;)

I believe that Necton have some big kick too, if i remember well of Children of the noisy village, their second album.
