I am a "universal" music lover and not a collector of numbers or names. I listen and occasionally buy records of most different kinds of music.

I love to dance and that works best with Goa Trance but also with Reggae, Ska, Gypsy and other ethnic or tribal music from around the globe as well as with different styles of Electroclash.

I consider Discogs as a playground for grown-up music addicts and record collectors. Discogs is fun but it seems to be an addiction like any other and thereby a flight, away from reality.

The way I feel "Waiting For A New Life" could really be THE Goa hymn. It is Total Eclipse's masterpiece and such a powerful piece of real music.
Simple but of a deep sheer beauty it is like the "Moonlight Serenade" or "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" of Goa ... See full review
posted a review of L.S.C. / Wood Dragons - Big Brain / Occam's Razor. over 11 years ago
Occam's Razor is probably the first piece of "Progressive Trance" from a time when there was "only" Goa. Mark Allen's hand is apparent here and gave us a taste of what was to come from his later projects like Quirk, Rotatum, Hopefiend.

It's pure ... See full review

This is a beautiful compilation from the Psytrance label Atomic featuring some real good downbeat and other tricky experiments from Total Eclipse, Voodoo People, Jaia and other unusual suspects.

The "Dialogue" in track 9 is actually a monologue, a ... See full review

One of my all time faves, this one is WICKED!

Played on many early Goa parties in Germany, the B-side track (which you can hear in the video here) is also referred to as "Absolutely Lovely Stuff" because it has that WICKED vocal sample saying it. ... See full review

The "Ejector" track is highly enchanting!!! It's old minimal trance and sounds a bit dated from a resolution and production point of view but it pushes you into ecstatic movement immediately when you hear it.

Reminds me of a clear black sky in the ... See full review

Track 1 is a nice opener to this compilation but nothing more.
Track 2 is a massive dance weapon against the Borg, lieb gemeint but realized consequently and analogically hard-edged, great old-school stuff.
Track 4 is funny psychedelic club trance as I ... See full review
posted a review of Disco Slickers - Slick Of It All. over 11 years ago
Innovative progressive trance from SBK, his TARSIS companion Linus Wessel and DJ Mahasukha (INTACT INSTINCT). The tracks are minimal and in parts technoid, always with a psychedelic twist, but not what I love.

posted a review of Etnica - Equator. over 11 years ago
Yes this album is something special as it shows a more experimental and trippy-tribal ambient side of Etnica.

In addition there is this track "History" placed in the center of the album as it surely is the very heart of it.
"History" is a ... See full review

Balsamico for your mind and soul!)
"Queremos" Paz (track one), I think, means something like "Let's find peace" and this is what this music is all about.
Deep soulful crunchy beats being Thievery Corporation's equal, jazzy percussive bits, dubby FX and ... See full review

One of the earliest works of The Overlords featuring Ian Ion (of Kox Box/Saikopod greeting Frank E in the credits), this is AcidDiscoHouse with vocals and conscious and surreal lyrics, played on the beach parties in Goa before the ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Fourth Flight - Velocity. over 12 years ago
Most of the tracks here are pretty boring and in an uneasy and forced way "progressive", the haunting hype term of the time, which makes them sound stiff and sterilized.
The only track presenting a lively pulse is track one "Severe Clear", which is a ... See full review

Track A "Psychopod" is the track this compilation is worth having for. It is the absolute goa-psychedelik flipout undercover-overdrive frenzy that will make you forget your legs and feet while your brain is doing joyful flic-flacs...dancing is the real ... See full review

Long have we waited for Gus Till's solo album "My Body Is My Nightclub"... it never came.
