Hey, everyone. So, this is the last mix that I can guarantee for the foreseeable future, though it is fair to say that I am already ahead of the game with my schoolwork, so a set in the next month or so isnt impossible. Basically, Ill just play it by ear, so to speak.
Anyway, please enjoy this mix of twisted, highly acidic, and downright dirty Goa trance it is mind-bending stuff, for sure. The samples are all from an episode of Carl Sagans Cosmos, in which he discusses the planet Venus.
Peace for now,

So, I am actually a HUGE classical music fan, as well (my favorite composers are Dvorak, Khachaturian, Wolfgang Mozart, and of course, Beethoven, who is my very favorite, just above Dvorak). And I listen to many other genres of non-EDM music. So I definitely appreciate organic melodies and the subtleties of classical music (and not just Western classical music, either).
And as for the aural oscillation, yeah, I agree that it sound very good, especially on a high-quality sound system. Although the technique is found in a variety of genres, including recent psy-trance, I think it is most prominent in old-school Goa, like the kind found in this mix (as most of the tracks are pre-2000).
Anyway, I enjoy hearing peoples ideas and opinions, so cheers on the communique. :)

But you missed my other comments. I did enjoy how the artist used the full stereo spectrum and had sounds oscillating constantly back and forth from ear to ear but this one did not use the full frequency range to play with our emotions, ie, the psychological nature of the thing.
What with the technology we have today there are some artists that are not using that technology to titillate the ears. Although an "amateur" I consider myself an audiophile because my interest in sound goes back to the days of quadraphonics. Quad failed because it was not cost effective but it took George Lucas of Star Wars to discover a system that would fly! I "loved" quad but it was cumbersome and needed to much equipment. And the decoders were not fine tuned enough. Although my forte is classical I do like to put the headset on and listen to some techno, psy-trance, and trance occasionally.
Hang in there,

Well, David, I must admit, putting samples (not "narration"; for narration, see D.D.R.'s track, The Gift -- THAT'S narration) in my mixes gives me more joy and satisfaction than just about anything else in life (or at least, in my musical life).
So, while I appreciate that some people (such as yourself) may not be a fan of the samples, I must apologize -- because I love them, and won't stop including them anytime soon.
Thanks for listening, though.

Could do without the narration! Excellent stereo spectrum. Enjoyed the oscillation from era to ear.
