Chi-A.D. was one of the best producers of goa trance. He is not as well appreciated as he ought to be, for two reasons: 1) because his music has more spirit in it than drugged-up, brain dead party-goers cared about, and 2) because he was a bit late to the scene, not releasing his first album until 1997 which was after the genre had peaked around 1995-1996.

Chi-A.D. is a rare and shining example of an artist who produced high quality tracks, instead of a high quantity of junk. Chi-A.D. gave us numerous amazing tracks that stand on their own as testaments to the reaches of musical creativity. These are not merely tracks that are good to listen to, but tracks that would never fail to be recognized and would never be confused with other tracks because they are so unique and powerful. Examples include:
Beyond The Singularity
Exit Eternity
Astral Warrior
Eye Am The I
Transparent Sea

During 1999-2002, goa trance had largely devolved into harder and more minimalist psytrance. Chi-A.D. was one of the few artists who advanced the goa trance sound in his own way, which was unparalleled by other artists, instead of following that trend. Since 2002, nobody has yet surpassed Chi-A.D.'s efforts in the genre; although there was somewhat of a revival of interest in goa trance, the music produced after 2002 is pretty much all garbage produced by talentless hacks.

Chi-A.D. also produced some beautiful ambient and downtempo tracks that were released on Ultimae Records during the early 2000s. It's a shame he never produced a full ambient album for Ultimae.
