"The Apsaras are the celestial Nymphs, elegant dancing women, incarnation of the Pleasure Principle. They are visions of voluptuous beauty that have stamped themselves on the Indian psyche as the ideal feminine form. Their name literally means 'moving in the water', or 'water that moves'."

This could've been one of the great goa collections of the midnineties I missed! Yeah, Suntrip really has created their own niche to play around in, and if they are able to keep up with the pace of their so far 4 releases, this label far and away stands out as THE psychedelic trance label to keep and eye out for. No questions asked.

The amount of mind blasters here is nothing short of ridiculess :o). The créme de la créme of contemporary psytrance, there is not a single filler or anything coming remotely close here. Quite the contrary, every track has personality, catchiness, and hard dance energy. On any other compilation a standout. And make no mistake. Even if this finds its inspiration in the melodic goa sound of the midnineties, it's updated to meet the demands of nowadays psy follower and undoubtly a style in its own right. No questions asked.

The competition here is fierce but force me and Lost Buddha, Ka-Sol, Goasia, and Radical Distortion would be my pick. These guys'll bulldoze a path two miles wide to Psychedelia for me any day of the week. But each and ay artist here really would do that for me.

Full-blown goa-trance anno 2005!

The 26 celestial damsels of Indra's court are known as apsaras. Well versed in the art of music and dancing, they are said to be able to change their shapes at will and sometimes lured men to their deaths… Girl power!

Suntrip Records is the brainchild of Mars & Anoebis from psynews.org… They revolutionized the scene in 2004 with the extremely melodic Filteria debut album Sky Input… An album that got rave reviews and IMHO still holds a position as one of the best albums released in 2004… Now they are back with their second release – a compilation dedicated to bringing us more old-school melodic goa-trance made with modern production techniques… A look at the tracklist reveals a mixture of well-known names and upcoming stars…

What a nice, long, nostalgic trip down Melody Lane… Just like the Filteria album, this second Suntrip Records instalment is like a breath of fresh air… Nothing like it has been released for quite a while and such is brings something fresh into our scene… Diversity rules!

I like the middle part of this album the best… A few of the tracks sounded a little flat somehow compared to the rest… As DJ tools all tracks will work wonders I’m sure, and for home listening most of them are outstanding… But rest assured, there are no fillers here – it’s all good! Also the cover-art deserves a special mention – it looks absolutely wicked! Well done!

To conclude, this is a brilliant compilation – and very, very different from anything else released recently… When listening to this, you are constantly reminded of the good old glorious days of goa-trance… The style that so many of first fell in love with – and a style that obviously still is very much alive, evolving and kicking in 2005… I hope it never dies - and with visionary people like the Suntrippers, I’m sure it never will… I give this compilation my highest recommendations – and urge everyone with a healthy interest in melodic goa trance to give it a listen… You will not be disappointed! Enjoy!
