Genius psy from the moesgaard masters! This music is nice when you listen to it at home, but when you take it outside to a nicely picked spot in the forrest, it suddenly makes sence! The best musical experience ive had for sure! The sounds/effects and basslines mixed with the lovely surroundings and all those happy dancing people is just pure heaven! Viva la Aarhus style :D

I still vividly remember the trip when at 4am my friend puts this CD on and I was just thrilled. I was wondering what this is, how could anyone manage to create such distorted music.
Now that I've listened to this album for over a year I can honestly say that this is in my top three psytrance albums ever released.
All the songs have a certain direction and a function on this album, all of them equally insane. This must be the most twisted psytrance album in my collection.
The best Parvati Records release for sure!

Something we all know is that Aarhusbased Parvati Records are really lousy at making us consumers disapointed. This piece of heavyweight champion is a split album with Grapes of Wrath (Monno and Jaffa) and Meteloids (Jahbo and Terkelsen), and it's loaded with eight strong, sick imaginations who's acting out in soundscapes who's marching between everything from 144 to 148 beats per minute.

The artwork speaks for its self, and I like the style - but I like the contents even more.

After a discharge consisting of eight tracks from two of the most promising projects of Aarhus, the spectrum of feelings is very wide. This album arouses feelings in the body whom you refuse to ever let go off, and it serves dancefloors world over as well taking people on trips to their inner senses in a way only Parvati can. Parvati Records has done it again. They have preserved their high standard and delivered a red'n'white powerpackage whom you can't get enough of. The absolute favourites on the album constitutes of the third, the fifth and the seventh track - but the whole album entirety may be the favourite who's closest to my heart. Viva la Denmark!

Thrilling experimental psytrance for real psychonauts of distorted realms!

‘Tits On Fire’ is the 7th release by Danish hyper-psytrance label Parvati Records – and this time it’s a split album. Grapes Of Wrath are Jacob Skouborg (Jaffa) & Morten Wurtz (Monno) from Århus, Denmark and Meteloids are Rølike Jahbo (Jahbo) and Bo Terkelsen (Insane Behavior) also from Århus… Enough chit-chit, let’s check out the burning funbags…

Let me take you thru the tracks…

#01: [144 BPM] Wackie Mackie is indeed Wacky… It’s harsh and heavy – bitter and twisted – sour and pissed off… You guessed it, as legend has it, this is among the darkest, spookiest most twisted psytrance money can buy… A demented melody haunts this track from start to finish – alongside some filtered electronic farts and a sinister bassline… Unfortunately not much else happens here – I could’ve wished for more variation in this track… But this definitely work wonders for all the Duracell-bunnies on the dance floor… Decent track!

#02: [148 BPM] And now it’s time to face the haze… This track slowly builds – adding FX and after a couple of minutes it’s full blown with twisted synths, acid riffs and cut-up voice samples… It still has a ‘lazy feel’ to it – although it’s running @ 148 bpm… I like how stereo FX are used on most of the flaring acid riffs – guaranteed to mess with shroomy heads… Nice little track!

#03: [147 BPM] A nice floating, organic intro is brutally interrupted by a pounding bassline – taking no prisoners… Soon we’re treated to some GOW-goodies: Digital drops and acid belches catapulting through the airwaves fucking with your brain… ‘Raw’ is a fitting description actually – whereas ‘Sushi’ would be totally wrong… Booyakasha!

#04: [148 BPM] Imagine being 48 and crunchy… A shocking scenario indeed… Thx for the reminder Meteloids… This track has one of the phattest grooves I’ve heard in this kind of trance – Dark, gritty, raw, and brutal – uncooked, untreated, crude – but extremely trance inducing… This simply blows my damn socks off… Nuff said! Stellar track!

#05: [148 BPM] Remember the Texas Faggott track “Back To Mad” with the bizarre Backstreet Boys-like sample? This track uses a similar idea in the intro… Funny… Also the weird human-laugh-turns-into-a-crow sample is a funny idea… This track gallops away at 148 miles pr. hour, but maintains a ‘bouncy feel’ throughout… At times it is as though too much is going on at the same time, which can be a bit confusing ~ mental overload… But most of the time it just rocks!

#06: [148 BPM] And now for the track about a 9 Volts regulated 500mA plug-in mains adaptor! A cryptic track-title like that is exactly what you’d expect from an album with pix on the cover of 4 guys puffing on a dirt bong… More acid-driven mental distortion music… Hints of tribal percussion interlaced with crazy undecipherable voice samples… GOW does what GOW does best on this track: A massive wall of fast-paced, murky night trance… Enjoyable!

#07: [146 BPM] More GOW… “I’ve been having these hallucinations … having these delusions … All I know is it feels like my skull is splitting in half!” … Yikes – sounds like you’ve been tripping once too many mate… Another full-blown track in the vain of the predecessors… Canny, twisted, deeply psychedelic night-trance… I like how the digital acid-lines almost sound organic here… Massive track!

#08: [147 BPM] Meteloids muster up their last strengths on this final track to put an end to this boobs-ablaze trip… This is multilayered, complex party-music for trancers, dancers, romancers and dope fiends! All kinds of acid lines, synths, bleeps and blips forms bizarre bits of melodies, helps create a twisted tune – complete with spooky voice samples and overall madness… Well done!

What a great year it has been for this kind of music… The dust has hardly settled from the last Parvati instalment ‘Psychedelically Yours 2’ which was very popular with the masses – and I’m sure this will be so too… Judging by the hype it has already received in various internet forums, I’m pretty sure that the many fans of dark, twisted, underground horror-trance will eat this one raw…

Personally I’ve pretty much surrendered to this album… It has a higher good/bad track ratio than Psychedelically Yours 2 – which already had a pretty good ratio… That being said, there are still flaws on this album… A few tracks suffer from ‘stand-still-syndrom’ for certain amounts of time – which works well on the dance floor, but for home listening it can get tedious at times… But hey, you know what you’re getting into when you’re putting on a Parvati release… Highly energetic, sensory challenging, hard-hitting, nightmarish, acid-driven, underground night-trance… Recommended for all fans of the above mentioned style… Enjoy! =D
