In the universe that has been psytrance since 1995 now and then, as a dedicated follower, you stumble over an album you believe should set a reference mark for music to come. I had expectations that Time Of Illusion might be one of those albums. It proved to be.

I love Goa. I think the return of Goa that, notably, Suntrip is advocating is wonderful. Goa music has much more to offer. Yet, I think if this approach is accompanied by a dismissal of todays norm (full on) it misses out on todays headlines. Full on basslines can be invigorating and Goa isn't exclusively for the hippies. Tell me you can't dance to that bassline and that those fx aren't trippy. These ears want both equally!

Trold is offering the hybrid. Full on bassline to hypnotize and provide a cool factor and fx to keep me interested. This is music with potential to move any dance floor and intelligence to entertain any psychedelic follower. If Koxbox walked among gods in 1995, Astrix was a big inspiration in 2002 and Rabbit From Darkside became a reference mark in 2004 Time Of Illusion is officially my new ticket to psychedelia.

Thank you Macedonia and thank you Growing Flame Records. You’ve rapidly climbed high on my ladder of must-follow labels. Take a bow! Damn. This is good stuff.
