memo604 - anyone know if this is legit?


Recommended Posts

https://memo604.bandcamp.com/music

Looks pretty shady to me, but on the other hand those artists - or at least those releases - are absent from Bandcamp (like Koxbox's "U-Turn" is not in Twisted Rec. profile) so perhaps they somehow got together to release stuff like this way? There's this weird "consistency" to their catalogue and if it wasn't legit it could well include lots more of much more diverse music, right? For now I've refrained from getting anything there, but I'll be observing this.

Any thoughts?

They are on spotify, beatport and facebook as well. On facebook it seems they write introductions to the releases. There's not much info on their bandcamp indeed. 

Not much info on their discogs entry either. This is what bothers me the most about the bandcamp era, it can be a bit lacking in the finer details.

Thanks, let us know! I'd gladly pay again for digital versions of albums I already have on CDs if the proceeds go to the actual artists :)

Pay attention to Frank's comments here: https://www.facebook.com/KoxboxMusic/posts/10158414362728077?__tn__=-R

Huh. This is really cool!

I wonder who re-released dimension 5 - second phaze. It came out on spotify a while ago.

Nice that's a great one. When looking at it now on spotify, it says: Copyright 2020 Classic Goa Trax. So case closed. ;) I'm just surprised it wasn't released on Suntrip Records instead, remastered. It would've complemented the other D5 remasters on there for sure.

Oh I did not know that. Interesting since it's not on their bandcamp..

Anyway that album is fantastic. I wrote a review on it at some point. :p

Aha probably due to distribution not beeing synchronized between the platforms. My bet would be that they manually add the bandcamp releases, so it's most likely in the pipeline for bandcamp as well. (hopefully) :)

The sound quality is fantastic. They really put some work into those old tracks. Great label!

Dimension 5 - Second Phaze will be on our bandcamp tonight :) But, it was already released before release date by spotify and some others. Ah well...

And no reprint because it is still easily available :)

Aha interesting, I always assumed that remasters were done for the remastering process foremost. I didn't take into consideration how rare a CD might be :) that makes sense then. Is that the reason as well for Ra - To Sirius not beeing remastered? Or are there other factors as well sometimes, like how good/bad the original master might sound by todays standards?

The Mema604 is Trancentral we found out. So its legit.

As for the Ra - To Sirius album, I am not sure if he ever wants it to be remastered. We are talking about it, but nothing is sure...

Chi-A.D releases up now. Seems weird that Jayce would go to all that trouble of the webpage and then just hand all the files over to Trancentral. Are we certain it's legit?

 

Great detective work so far btw. I messaged Jayce Young, will let you know if i get a response

yeah does seem a bit weird because hannah has been working hard getting web store up but she has it for sale on her site, so maybe memo have some rights??

Yea the effort Jayce and Hannah put into the store is why it seems a little off to me. I guess a reply from Jayce would end this once and for all.

I checked the Trancentral Youtube channel and sure enough they have a bunch of recent uploads to Chi-A.D albums and a link to the Memo604 Bandcamp.

I had no clue what Trancentral you guys were talking about, and that it was as youtube channel. I assumed it was some new goa label. :D Now I understand, that youtube channel always had lot's of nice goa trance.

When you were talking about Trancentral the only thing that popped up in my mind was the old goa compilation:
