posted a review of Alienapia - Goapocalipsis. over 8 years ago
Wow, this album is amazing.
The first time I heard it, various feelings have risen from inside. The same feelings when I was listening to old MFG, Pleiadians and AP from cassette tapes when I was a kid. This album is very energetic, delivering really ... See full review
posted a review of Phobium - Future Uncertain. over 10 years ago
I'm not a fan of this dark-psy-fullon-forest music but every once in a while I hear something I really enjoy - just like this album just here. Norwegian Phobium (Henning Helland Ottesen) has posted a recorded live set of his music for free at his website ... See full review
posted a review of Pakito - Living On Video. over 11 years ago
Living On Video is another example of how unbelievable shallow and simple music gains such popularity.
The track itself has the most basic rythm section, one note riff and a (again, simple) melody copied from another track.

The most amazing part of ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Order Odonata - The Technical Use Of Sound In Magick. over 11 years ago
One of the best from the Order Odonata series with a bunch of Israeli and British producers collaborating with themselves under different names. Most tracks in here are very dancefloor oriented, some dreamy while other psychedelic, and very psychedelic. ... See full review
posted a review of Shpongle. over 12 years ago
Where to begin? The Shpongle duo are veteran musicians which need no further introduction. They took the psybient genre into a new direction and set new standards with their first album. Since then they were virtually reinventing themselves which each ... See full review
posted a review of Electro Sun (2) - Pure Blue. over 12 years ago
If you expected psychedelic trance, this is not for you. This is full on trance and it's very melodic. Some say even too much. If you like melodies, then this is the album for you - the melodies are excellent. Dreamy and catchy, and you'll find yourself ... See full review
posted a review of Astral Projection - DJ Condom. over 12 years ago
This is part of a campaign from the Israeli Ministry of Health. AP were getting paid for this - so don't expect any amazing creative work on it.
The track itself has the Astral touch to it and it's actually not THAT bad as you would have expected (that ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Moran Shnitzer & Har-Ell Prussky* - Untitled. over 12 years ago
This cd was given away for free with a teenagers magazine ("Rosh Ehad" if i'm not mistaken) in Israel some years ago.
Even though this release has "Har-El Prussky" in it's title, I wouldn't say it has much of the "goaish" musical value to it. This is ... See full review
posted a review of Binah. over 12 years ago
Binah is a one time (unfortunately) collaboration between Simon P of Shpongle and George B of Slinky Wizard. Add a beautiful vocalist and the outcome is undoubtfully one of the best psychedelic chillout tracks ever made. Someone this track did not reach ... See full review
posted a review of Xerox & Illumination. over 12 years ago
Xerox was one of the founding fathers of the Israeli fullon sound, and Illumination was one of the founding fathers of the Israeli "nitzhonot" sound, as Luminus. Many years passed since then and the two met and began making something which is totally ... See full review
posted a review of Pleiadians. over 12 years ago
Pleiadians, aka Etnica, are one of the few acts that composed music which had both the goa melodies and the intense psychedelia. Not many artists managed to combine those 2 elements so smoothly. The result is music sounds very unique yet not too ... See full review
posted a review of Cosma. over 12 years ago
Cosma's music was something special - nothing you can categorize or define by a genre. Some sort of dreamy-progressive-fullon-minimal thing. There is one thing you can say about his music - and that's emotional. Cosma's music is one of the most emotional ... See full review
posted a review of Ticon - Aero. over 12 years ago
What happens when you take progressive trance and add GROOVE to it? You get Aero!
Digital Structures usually releases quality progressive, and this album stays true to the legacy. Brilliant sound production and original ideas are all here. This album ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Zoo-B - U.S.T.A.. over 12 years ago
This is a good example of a total waste of time, money and plastic.
USTA took 11 extremely mediocre tracks, mixed them in a horrible way and put it on a CD. Seems like it was released just to "get rid" of signed tracks. The artwork is quite horrible as ... See full review
posted a review of Floating Point (3) - Between Worlds. over 12 years ago
Alan Gubby joins Nick Westwood ,Rob Mansell and some more musicians to produce an album filled with chilled sounds and tribal beats. The music isn't too sophisticated and quite repetitive at some points but it has this forest feel to it, together with ... See full review
posted a review of Marc van der Vlugt - Behind The Scenes. over 12 years ago
2001 was the year when the psytrance world was trying to get away from the minimal wave it was swept in during 2000 and this compilation was the answer.
Progressive psytrance which is not minimal at all is what is inside. The music is quite psychedelic, ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Vlado - Trancelvania. over 12 years ago
The 2nd compilation from Pukka Music is a big leap from their previous one. The music here is much more mature with a shorter percentage of very bad tracks - only one.
This is night fullon, melodic touches here and there but mostly psychedelic, high ... See full review
posted a review of Man With No Name - Teleportation. over 12 years ago
This is a compilation of "the best of MWNN". All tracks are very solid, very MWNNish. Most tracks were already released somewhere else, and the Teleport remix isn't that great - but the rest are classics.
If you're not familiar with MWNN and looking for ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Psychedelic Vibes 4. over 12 years ago
This is the essence of psychedelic goa trance. The compilation is worth it just for tracks 2 & 3, which are some of the most amazing tracks I have ever heard.
The compilation covers quite a wide range of styles, from the early evolution of guitar-fullon ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Ari*, Alien Project - Cosmic Communication. over 12 years ago
A lot of MFG in this compilation (Passenger being half of MFG) but somehow the music in here doesn't sound that MFGish. This is goa trance alright, but with a different perspective, maybe tribal would be a good word to describe it.
The cover art is also ... See full review
posted a review of Exaile - Hit The Machine. over 12 years ago
Probably one of the best full on albums ever made in Israel, and worldwide.
Even though it is released on Chemical Crew, which we all love to laugh at, the music itself is nothing less than brilliant. The sound production (with the generous assistance ... See full review
posted a review of MFG - New Kind Of World. over 12 years ago
This is IMHO the best goa trance album ever made. It has anything - from the pure energies of When We Dream & Peaceful Relaxation, through the psychedelic sounds of The Waking mind to the tribal beats of New Kind of World. No cheese here - even the ... See full review
posted a review of MFG - Project Genesis. over 12 years ago
This album marked a huge leap in terms of MFG. The music is here much more mature than The Prophecy and New Kind of World. The sound production is a whole lot better, the ideas and motives are solid and the style is harder and darker in contrary to the 2 ... See full review
posted a review of MFG - The Message. over 12 years ago
This album, even though it is much different than previous MFG releases (which were quite goaish and fullonish for their time), is amazing. Made in 2000, this album has the "minimal feel" but it is actually full of dark and dreamy sounds. This is not goa ... See full review
posted a review of Nystagmus - The Immaculate Perception. over 12 years ago
This album is all about originality. Even the sound production is... Let's call it "original". The music itself has no boundries. The main guideline is "psychedelic fullon" but don't let it fool you - the music here is old-skool influenced and very ... See full review
