Peace and positivity to all as we approach a brand new year :))
And to mark this occasion we have a very special treat for the listeners of Back To Goa. An excluisve mix from one of the pioneers of psy-chill, Dimitri AstroPilot! Specially for the show, AstroPilot has crafted an hour long mix of chilled and dreamy trance with elements lifted directly from his brand new album 'Here and Now' just released on Altar Records.
We hope you enjoy and wish everyone a very happy new year :))
Track listings (please visit the album release site for Here and Now listings):
Artist's own bio:
"AstroPilot comes from Siberia, Russian Federation. Behind the name is Dmitry Red'ko.
For the past 10 years he has been experimenting with music and sounds.
His music is the direct outcome of his true passion for the sonic world and a lot of hard work in the studio. AstroPilot has quickly become a well recognized name in Psychedelic Ambient circles. His music is a reflection, and combines the culture, sights and sounds form his homeland.
AstroPilot manages to generate a considerable buzz especially in the local Russian Psychedelic club scene and as a result has been grabbing the attention from some of the bigger names in the industry. When listening to his music, it is sometimes hard to believe that behind his sound there is just a 26 year old lad who loves to express his visions through his music.
Dmitry has been listening to The Future Sound of London and The Orb since he was a little boy. He has also been inspired by the writer Vasily Golovachev and alike...
AstroPilot is at home in atmospheres. His music sweeps the listener away into a world of imagination and hypnotizes with it's ethnic spices, rhythms and samples, a higher state of consciousness for the listen, his goal.
He is always looking for something new for his performances, in beginning it was more Downtempo Psychedelic trip and now his sets and performances are more dance-able. Including more Ethnic and modern rhythms parts.
His first album "Fruits Of The Imagination" was released on Avatar in October 2007. His second album "Solar Walk" was released on Altar Records, Canada, and a third album on Altar Records still, just released this November 2010."

An exclusive mix this week from producer and DJ, Brad Gamma. When not composing his own music, inspired in his own words by a desire to create 'psychedelic madness!', Brad is studying for an Msc in Digital Composition and Performance.
This is definately one of the most original sets we've had on the show, packed with Brad's as-yet unsigned productions....enjoy :)
1. Brad Gamma – Arrested Terrestrial
2. Brad Gamma – Pseudospiritual Schizophrenic
3. Brad Gamma – Let There Be Dark
4. Dapanji – Don’t Stop
5. Prometheus – 9th (The Man Who Swam Through A Speaker)

Brad Gamma is the electronic artist Bradley Burns's trance-dance motivated alter-ego. Dominated by bizarre psychedelic soundscapes and melodies, the music creates a journey through the dark, the light, the insane, the messy, the uniform, the scary and the silly. It is to be fully enjoyed whilst stomping around dancefloors or alternatively by floating above them.

A really welcome change in style for the show this week with a warm Iboga style progressive set from Undertoad. Undertoad is Neil Coles from Newcastle, a folk musician who's love of the psychedelic came (partly) from a flat share with Ozric Tentacles in the 80s! Undertoad usually plays alongside his DJ partner PsyWave (Zoviet France).
1 Ipanema - Jey & Ex
2 Terminal X - Tandem
3 My World - Supergroover / Xahno
4 City Lights - Rocky
5 Sweep Mama - Phony Orphants
6 Sleepless - Etic
7 System Float - Symphonix
8 Freedom - Suntree
9 Waiting - Dejavoo
10 Self Inflicted - Hopi / M Theory
11 Offline Providings - Hopi / Earthling
So, Undertoad, dont ask! I'm Neil, i come from Newcastle and to quote Sam Cook, " I like psytrance for breakfast" ! Im a folk musician who developed a love for psychadelic music after living with the Ozric Tentacles in Wimbledon in the eighties, going to festivals and seeing bands like the Ullulators and The Oroonies, (still my favourite ever live band). I usually play alongside partner in psytrance PsyWave (Mark Zf of Zoviet France) Mark taught me how to build a set, how to create a mood on the dancefloor, we do harder faster more full on sets but tend to drift back to progressive uplifting tracks.

Artists own bio:
Kained & Able is the London based project of Steven Johnson and Nolan Luijten. Having met at a party in 2007, they bonded over a shared vision in progressive Psy and a fetish for cross-dressing. They went on to form the Kained & Able project in 2008 and have spent the past year refining and performing their underground blend of psychedelic trance across the UK and beyond. With a primary focus on heavy proggy beats, twisted sound design and hands on live performance, their taste for a minimal and darker form of progressive Psytrance has led them to become a regular feature in the London scene. Over the next year the focus for the duo will include various releases on a few up and coming labels and an EP due out later in the year whilst looking to continue and expand their performances across the UK and Europe.
Kained & Able are also part of the Arkona Creation label:

'Para Halu is Adam Hohmann from Hungary - a multi-talented musician and producer who, since his very young age has been always enchanted by music. As a child he learned to play the accordion, which later changed to piano and synthesizers however, he really enjoyed playing any instruments he ever met. After discovering computer based music production and trying himself in different compositions from beatless ambient music to dirty ass-kicking drum'n'bass, he began writing psychedelic tunes as Para Halu in the year 2002.
The past years have seen Para Halu as part of many first class international lineups all over the world from Japan to Brazil, from huge crowded parties and festivals such as Universo Paralello, Ozora, Soulclipse or Fullmoon Festival to indoor clubs and underground outdoor gatherings.
Meanwhile Para Halu released countless tracks on various compilations as well as five succesful albums: self-distributed "No Para Full Halu" (2003) was followed by "The World Of Peace" (Parvati Records 2005), and two special conceptual albums "Space Rock" and "Wide Range" (Zaikadelic Records 2007 and 2008). The latest full-length Para Halu work called "The Future Sound Of Para Halu" was released recently on Adam's own label Psylife Music.
Short after Psylife Music, a sub-label for progressive beats has also been started: Halu Beats Records released its first compilation in 2008 with Sensient, Kalumet, Minimal Criminal and remixes including the one made from the Ace Ventura gem "Rebirth" by Adam Hohmann himself.'

Since starting the show we've had sets gifted from new DJs/producers as well as established international acts. Every mix we've received has been full of energy and passion and we'd like to thank these guys for their kindness and for sharing their creativity.
One thing I've always been amazed at since getting into the psy scene way back in 1997 is the wonderful attitude of the community and the generosity of the DJs, producers and party people. So few big egos and so much sharing and collaboration which I think is the hallmark of the psy community......we hope you guys keep listening to the show and contributing your wonderful energy in the future :)
So before the top three, a shoutout to all those who's mixes went live on the show - thank you:
Radioactive Cake (Glitchytonic records), Onionbrain (Mind Tweakers Records), New Age Hippies (Cyan music), Minimal Criminal (Cosmic Conspiracy Records), Cryolab, Twisted Kala (Discovalley records), Dark El Kante (6d soundz/adama), Aoidioboa (littleBIGsensations) Kameleon (Pangea), Hex, Nitin, Whirling Dervish (Newtech pirates), Labyrinth (Pangea)
Top mixes (based on listener stats):

2. Equinox Festival (Labyrinth)

Well done to Dark El Kante for a great dark psy mix which received over 5,300 downloads since it went live in Feb 2009 and had the highest download rate per month out of all the other mixes.

I have been Djing on and off for the past 6 years .
I can dj any genre of music but psytrance is where the heart is. The sets I make speak loads and have a theme and purpose behind them. I like doing long outdoor sets...:-).....I am into music production as well and am currently working on innovative ideas to create new sounds. Apart from that I am an Engineer and currently doing a MSc in Digital composition and performance at the University of Edinburgh.

Artists's own bio: About Radioactive.Cake
Radioactive.Cake, real name Robert Hundt, is a Berlin based producer of intelligent psygressive trance music with a touch of wilderness, dark fx and a carrot...from outer space! He produces a more minimal and darker form of progressive psytrance. The Cake's intention is to surpass boundaries and establish a sound that is different from what is heard all too often.
His first musical steps were taken in 1999 when discovering the software "Audiomulch" and learning about structure and composition of electronic sounds, effects and track arrangements. But the Cake's knowledge and studio equipment took a continual advancement and will continue to do so. Robert is not only producing music, he also plays livesets and mixes music as dj, and has done so for over 8 years now.

Artists own bio:
I started djing in 96' playing with different forms of music and learning the basics and fundamentals of djing, but in 1999 we (Labyrinth & I) went to our first psytrance party, and it changed everything. We've been playing electronic music in various forms for almost 10 years now. Moving from hard german trance to more anthem style trance to nu skool breaks to progressive into techno and so on... all keeping it very atmospheric , hypnotic, and very universal. I still play many forms of music because each moment in life requires a different sound, but I am mostly focused on darker progressive/techno/tribal and darker melodic psytrance with bounce.From 07' to 09' ive been fortunate enough to play outside Paris (Aracdia Festival), Montreal (with Biogenisis), Melbourne Australia, New York, Northern Cali (Gemini festival), Atlanta GA, Knoxville TN, Charlotte NC, Asheville NC (Equniox Festival), and in our hometown Greenville SC at various locations playing beside some top notch producers such as, Solead, Shotu, Artifakt, Scorb, Random, D sens, Naked Tourist, Mubali, Kri, BSM, Pena, Prime Time, plus lots more. I also make up half of the duo Bioluminescense together with Labyrinth producing deep psychedelic progressive tribal beats for the soul. Also half of the duo LifeN'Limbo putting various forms of emotions from the physical realm into progressive technoish sounds and rhythms. more from both projects soon. We also have 2 radio shows on DI.fm. both are now featured on the 2nd Friday of each month. 1st the progressive show 'Sound Ascension'; airs at 2pm US eastern, our next show 'Initiation into our Tribe' on the psy/goa channel airs at 4pm US eastern, back to back! Both shows will feature some amazing guest from all over the world and especially from our label Pure Perception Records. Im very greatful for the family we have with Pangea, Labyrinth, Klaws, Draigosa and so many other amazingly talented artist we work with with our label. My life is pretty simple but amazingly fun; I am very fortunate for everything thats ever happened to me. I give thanks to the Almighty God, the Savior Jesus Christ, the Blessed Holy Spirit, and the Divine Scribe Hermes Trismegistus, and so many other rightous teachers and elders that have helped lay clues to the meaning of this journey in many forms since the beginning of man, i thank them for their inspiration and helping me to re-connect to the Supernal Conscious of the Infinite through sight and sound.

dark melodic psy trance
"Greetings, My name is Elliott Vaughn, dj/producer/bassist representing Pangea Productions / Pure Perception Records, The Malah. I have been a musician most of my life playing the piano and bass guitar at a young age. In the summer of 1999 I was blown away by my first outdoor psy trance experience in the appalachian mountains. Ever since, I have been djing and producing psychedelic, progressive, tribal, and minimal sounds. Giving much passion and energy into each mix, telling a story and using the power of music to lift the mind, body, and spirit. I feel very blessed to have the oportunity to create and perfrom music that I love. Through music and art we can lift each other up and help each other realise that we are all connected and live in harmony with God, our Father, the Great Spirit, the Universal Consciousness. Along with Kameleon, we formed the collective Pangea Productions in 2000, and our record label Pure Perception Records in 2007. We have been blessed to work with some of our favorite producers from around the world releasing various froms of underground dance music. We also create tribal psy progressive under the name 'Bioluminescense', And bouncy techno/tech house under the name 'Life N Limbo'. We have had the opportunity to play at many events across North America in Atlanta, Montreal, NYC, California, Asheville as well as playing the Arcadia Festival 2008 in France. We have also held a residency on internet radio site DI.fm for the progressive channel and the psy/goa channel. Be on the look out for future mixes, releases, and events. "A Labyrinth has only one path, which leads the seeker to the center and back out again." peace, light, praise, love .."
