#10005212 Mindsphere - Mental Triplex : Mindream (SUNCDLE06)

Posted by antic604 on 16 February 2017 - 03:39 PM

So why non mixed mp3s? In bandcamp times, people download sometimes track 2 and 7, and like this they have no intro or anything... So we came to the conclusion this would be the best :)

 

I (and others I'd imagine) would appreciate if you considered adding another track to Bandcamp purchase then - a full mixed CD.

 

Like so: https://sebtaylor.ba...the-aquarius-ep




#10005187 why so few votes on the not so bloody sirius 2016 Top 10 releases thread?

Posted by antic604 on 15 February 2017 - 02:06 PM

Personally I'm yet to listen to few more 2016 releases & there's still two weeks left until voting is closed, so I'll vote by then :)




#10005148 Virtuart - Virtuart & Friends - 2CD - [DATCD009]

Posted by antic604 on 14 February 2017 - 12:30 AM

I'm gonna get some hate for saying this, but for me this is the 2nd best DAT release after Etnica Live '96. Whenever I'm driving - which is 1.5h hour every day - it's on, and loud. Definitely in my top 5 albums of 2016! <3


#10005131 Braincell - Connecting Multiverses [Blue Hour Sounds]

Posted by antic604 on 13 February 2017 - 02:22 PM

6th Braincell's album was just released:

Listen on Soundcloud.com

 

Sounds good, but - typically for Braincell - somehow not particularly exciting...




#10005126 Found a great artist: Toxeed

Posted by antic604 on 13 February 2017 - 10:39 AM

Guy released 6 full-length albums and he's virtually unknown? Well, I need to check it out :) Thanks for the heads up!




#10005063 What new music did you get today?

Posted by antic604 on 10 February 2017 - 02:18 PM

I ordered this CD https://www.discogs....release/4703870 from bandcamp a long time ago. And hey now it arrived to ma mailbox. Aright :D Its a blaster!

 

Agreed, it's such a wonderful CD - Aaron has his very unique, signature sound and whatever style he does you can always tell it's him. If not having them yet, get "9 Lives", "One" & "You Live In A Zoo" immediately :)




#10005037 GlitchModus - Telepathic Trigger 140 BPM Psybrid

Posted by antic604 on 09 February 2017 - 12:35 PM

Man, I just adore how you don't care for goa/psy conventions and do your thing! I love the sense of progression here, how it gets denser & denser with each minute. The effects you apply to almost every sound are just spot on, creating that 'funky' / 'groovy' vibe. I really appreciate how most of the 'lead' lines are vague, chaotic and 'random' because this is - for me - a key to music being psychedelic: you're constantly surprised, constantly on the edge not knowing how things develop. I think that for some other track I compared you to modern day Sean "Process" Williams and I stick by that. Awesome work, once again! :)




#10005006 Pogo - Rock Your Soul [Nano Rec.]

Posted by antic604 on 07 February 2017 - 02:39 PM

Certainly sounds like the Nano template to me..Perhaps with a bit more psychedelic flourish at least.

 

Not to be a downer. But after hearing Dick, Tristan etc again live recently all in a row where it all just blends into the same almost long track.. This sounds like it would fit right in there unfortunately..

 

Not really hearing the difference you are talking about.. Dick and Tristan, Martian arts even etc have some tracks very similar to this kind of stuff..

Anyways, will give the full release a listen if you are saying there is probably more to it..

 

Well, might as well be that I'm projecting from his previous projects (Wingmakers compilations and Master Blasters album) which - to me - were a pinnacle of Nano-style full-on. We'll find out soon enough :)




#10004929 The cheesy full-on thread

Posted by antic604 on 03 February 2017 - 08:27 AM

I don't know if it's cheesy enough, but has all the traits mentioned here - rolling bass lines, uplifting melodies, farts - and I really, really like it when I need something "lighter":

#10004881 Samples of the new Infected Mushroom album Return to the Sauce

Posted by antic604 on 01 February 2017 - 07:58 PM

That's what got you confused?

 

I didn't know how to comment the rest of it :)




#10004861 Samples of the new Infected Mushroom album Return to the Sauce

Posted by antic604 on 01 February 2017 - 10:32 AM

For those that STILL want it on CD, it appears it will be distributed by Arabesque, which means it will be available in Psyshop / Beatspace and through their own Bandcamp-based store (https://arabdigitalh...rn-to-the-sauce).




#10004845 The Maniac - The Mama Phenomenon

Posted by antic604 on 31 January 2017 - 07:27 PM

I suck at the bassline!  :(


Apparently you're not the only one struggling with bass lines (https://www.psynews....rance-bassline/), so just work on it because the rest is really good. I still can't believe it's produced in Caustic :)


#10004816 Forest psytrance - feedback appreciated :)

Posted by antic604 on 31 January 2017 - 10:44 AM

Wow, that sounded really good!

 

I'm not a real connoisseur of Forest Psy, but "Rays of Light" definitely has all the hallmarks of the genre, with that "mushy" bassline, incidental FX, etc. What I really liked though - and people on this particular forum will appreciate - were the melodic touches: chords, the flute (!!!), the acid line and final synth lead. The only thing I'd work on further is the snare, because it seems to be a plain TB909 sample, so it could use some tweaking - it sticks out too much. Maybe filter out some of the "click", add a reverb or chorus?

 

The 2nd track "Trolldeg" actually sounds even better, wider and clearer somehow and I like the more funkier vibe + all the percussive stuff, but it's more experimental and less melodic. Very fine track, still.

 

Please keep up, you're onto something. I really would consider buying your music if it ever gets released :)




#10004798 The psytrance scene and why the digital format is so expensive

Posted by antic604 on 30 January 2017 - 10:37 PM

i thought that prices for music are so low like never before

 

not to mention that alot of it is for free or to donate for

 

peoples and problems... <_<

 

Yes, 1st world problems indeed, but look at it this way - if a CD costs $10, which includes manufacturing (disc, case, inlets) & packaging, transport costs & reseller's margin, then it's sort of expected that digital version having none of that should be cheaper. In most cases it is not, in others it's $1-2 difference.

 

Sure, labels and artists have the right to take the advantage of the situation and charge whatever their audience is willing to pay, but - likewise - we have the right to complain about it ;) :P
