Yellow Sunshine Explosion Goa

The Yellow Sunshine Explosion compilations have come a long way since the first releases of the Goa series.
DJ Bim and Yellow Sunshine Explosion today present Goa 2006 Vol4, another 'best of ' for modern trance.

Things get warmed up with Raggadum Style, a rasta ragga track by Aerospace.
DJ Martin kicks into four on four with persistent Lauschgift.
Yotopia throw in Blue Moon, another mild progressive build up.
The sound heads more psychedelic with tasty minimal trance by Der Eins Plus with Pantastic.
More progressive tracks here by Behind Blue Eyes and Lish.

The compilation really explodes though with Deedrah and their new wave stormer Take It Or Leave It.
Galactica vs Alexander Logows continue with the fierce and fast paced psytrance thriller Escape From Heaven.
Cosmic Tone send you away with the retro trance anthem I Volume and next Optokoppler dresses dark for Back Space.
A lot of good tracks from artists such as Gataka, Spectrum, Ziki, Crystal Sound, Illumination and Phanatic follow but the Pendulum rmx from Four Carry Nuts and The Bombe from Electric Universe stand out.

So Yellow Sunshine Explosion does it again.

Fractal Brain Chemistry

Fractal records Brain ChemistrySwiss Fractal records have put together Brain Chemistry, a compilation of psychedelic sounds and uplifting beats.

Sidhartha kick off in good mood with Brain Chemistry. Clear production and some infectious effects with a solid beat.
N3XU5 continue with the more downbeat morning trancer Confidential. Happy sounds and crisp samples.
Phonic Request vs Shagma have a different idea with The Magic Ring. A very psychedelic, melodic and eventfull track that builds up nicely and keeps the rhythm turbo. Perhaps the best track here.

Known outfit Elec3 contribute Uno Mass, an electric driven psytrance tune.
Don't know what Painkiller had in Mind but this one is a retro take on some psychedelia that resembles 1995 trance music.
Killer Buds vs Energetic have Unreal Dreams in a journey to mysterious sonic planes. Interesting track.
Sidhartha is back with night time High Pnossis.
Neuromotor vs Electrocult keep the night vibe with style. Some very cool deep sounds and bouny baselines drive this one.
Kali has a good Concept for ending this compilation in good form with a psy groove that keeps bouncing.

Then a suprising collaboration sees Joti and GMS teaming up to produce wild psytrance stormer One Of No Name. Fresh production and trance power that will be played a lot.

Eskimo vs Vlado introduce the appropriately named 2005. Happy mood with some cheeky fx.
Dynamic vs Sigma production 2Picks has an acid techno aura with a melody travels back a few years with a nostalgia that moves you.
Cycle Sphere contribute Dangers Speed. This sound can go either way for you.

The best track in the compilation is Magnetic Field by Sigma. Imposing beat, strong leads and big epic melodies dominate. The robotic voice sample adds to the atmosphere. Takes the past into the future with a unique tone and attitude.
The last track Tapasia from Hiras Hiroshi doesn't rest with strong eastern lead melodies and full percussion.

Overall a pretty interesting listen, with some tracks that will rock the dancefloor and reck a couple of home stereos. Enjoy.
