    Not so long ago, I stated, that the Russians just do it best at the moment. While that was not exactly true, as Alienapia are Ukrainians to be precise, I'll extend that statement to Eastern Europe :)

    Artists like Manifold, Sulima, Alienapia, Samadhi, Luminexia, Psykovsky, Furious - to only name a few, have been responsible for some very high quality releases in recent times. Russian project Dissociactive is no exception and it's 2010 album, called Total Transformation is an awesome piece of psytrance music.

    Straight after “Underwater Lab EP” Sun Station brings you “Total Transformation” – a new full length work by famous russian psychedelic master Dissociactive.

    Review:

    I knew it. I knew it would be good. When I first listened to "Inner Poison", I thought to myself "damn that's good". Though I have to admit…

    New year, new recommendations.

    Over the liquid waves of space, floating towards some distant constellation, we have discovered a tale of ancient sounds, secret to mankind so far. Two space travellers will meet you with a magic story of time and space, and take you on a journey through the higher states of Goa trance.

    That's what the label has to say about the new VA, which basically tells you, what to expect: 10 tracks, clocking in at about 78 minutes, packed with Goatrance goodness.

    One of the first compilations of the year 2010 is Goatronika, compiled by Imba, mastered by Digitoxin and released on Phototropic Records. The cover art has been done by Imba and John Spanos from Radical Distortion. Radical Distortion, whose 2009 album Psychedelic Dreams has been a massive hit, kicks off this VA of Goatrance goodness with Analogue. The first half of the compilation features well known artists, being Space Elves (remixed by equally well known Jikooha), Alienapia, Sky Technology and Amithaba Buddha.
