Next release from Cronomi is a digital only EP from Anakoluth. It is available for free from Cronomi's website and yes, I made it into a physical release. Why not? the artwork was rdy :)

^ Anak was a mod on Isratrance back in the heyday :) He gave/sent me his Vinyl copy of Sandman's Psycho Toones many many years ago.. I'll never ever forget and not appreciate that. What a cool release:) And the guy made some nice music holding up his own unique sound and yeah I guess style :) Do not know how he's doing today.. Hopefully he has a good life:)

It's a good EP for sure, the tracks are quiet in a positive way.

Second compilation release and 2nd quirky title. I guess in festivals you do see a lot of people walking around in ways fit only to alien forms of life.

Acidic Goa with many great names, more mature that then first release and....ohm, welcome Artha please everyone :)

Boom. The bomb has dropped. 
Pure acidic Goa Trance and an excellent cover as well. For me this is where Cronomi Records peaked.

this really is a release i don't get at all. there was so much praise for erta ale and apparenlty there still is, but the only track i find good is e-mantra's. i'd almost call it the weakest release on cronomi records ;)

There is nothing more subjective than art as clearly my next post demonstrates :)

Funny how our perception of art depends and changes with era, time, personality, mood, even the time of the day. I do not know anything more subjective than art. 
When I first heard Portamento I was blown away. I remember thinking that's how NeoGoa should be made. But I did't get that feeling when I re-listened to it. Whether because I heard it so many times, or it didn't age that well, or I just wasn't in the right mood I do not know. But it is what it is.

Still, a solid album.

PortaMento was the last good Cronomi release (and their best release if you ask me). After that they started going seriously downhill (I don't even own anything Cronomi past PortaMento anymore).

Let's start with one thing that won't make me a very likable person. I do not like NeoGoa. No matter how much I try I cannot enjoy it. It sounds too mindless and purposeless compared to oldschool Goa/Psychedelic. Too much noise for nothing (how many channels do you need to make a modern track?) Their sole purpose is to be played in a club or an outdoors festival (which is great) but with Goa, home listening was always an option.

Having said that, 90% of those releases I do not like. This is the case with M-Run's album. Sorry.

now for the last two albums we can agree :). portamento was really good back then, now it's just ok. nothing i'd seek out anymore. and m-run was never my cup of tea.

Hmmm, that cover, and especially that font. It doesn't bode well.

Thankfully, I'm wrong. It isn't the Artha you would expect from his debut album and EP, but once again he shows us that he is one of the few artists that truly get the feeling of oldschool Goa.

My only complain is that some tracks feel a bit underdeveloped or forced to complete them in time.

Let's see, I did downtempo, I did Psychedelic, now it's time for some proper oldschool rave :D I think I will stick with that order for a while.

Having started listening to electronic music in 1994 the first sounds I was exposed too were coming from Rave (in the very broad sense). Even if it was only for a couple of years (while transitioning to Goa Trance) I still have fond memories. However I was too young to have any kind of income at the time to buy any releases. So, in the recent years i started collecting some of the old material (the cheap ones, let's not get crazy) and hunt down the tunes that I loved.

One of the most influential labels was React. And here is its first CD released. Proper oldschool Belgian techno. Every track is gold.

P.S. If you have any compilation series to recommend I'm all ears.

Fast forward 3 years. Gone are the years of the Belgian anthems. Here we have a mix of Techno, Trance and House. Feels a bit disjointed which makes sense since the React Test series were samplers with tracks from various releases of their catalogue.

The year 1995 and we reached the 10th addition to the Reactivate series. There might be the word techno in its subtitle but you will only find Trance tracks here (and from now on). And all of them are at least decent with most being great. A solid release.
