When Goa trance today is referred to by the younger generation as hippie trance releases such as TIP's Blue Compilation are among the ones to thanks. Long, floating tracks, acidic FX twirling in and out, and a story like build up. For those who love it, it doesn't get much more classic than TIP's colour series.

BC opens with Doof's Star Above Parvati, a classic track from the golden goa days with a long build-up where new layers are constantly developing the track until 2:54 when the theme kicks in. No wonder we don't hear this on the radio! Trippy, long, demanding. Nice opener! Koxbox takes over with Fuel On, another genre defining track and among the best tracks from the Danish psychoheads. So much is going on in this track, even after years of listening I am still surprised how much variety they've managed to cramp in here. Nothing short of 5/5 star material. Astral Projection gives us Enlightened Evolution, another melodic goa track in the endless string of classics they effortlessly offered the world in the mid nineties. Actually, this may not be their best track - and it's on a thousand other compilations - but it's still a solid track. Lastly I need to mention Inscape's Nothing Like A Good Friend which will set any openminded dancefloor on a 1st class ticket to Psychedeliaville. Trippy, potent, vigirous psychedelic goa. Nice!

These favorites aside, not everything here moves me equally well. Infinity Project, Eco, Orichalcum, and Brainman doesn't really get under my skin. At the same time I have no doubts that under the right conditions they would still put a smile on my face.

New comers looking for a goa starting point may begin here.
