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)
6. Brad Gamma – Out Your Head
7. Chris Rich – The Domino Effect
8. Brad Gamma – Moving Swiftly Onwards
9. Psykovski – Wooden Child
10. Zen Mechanics – Vurt
11. Brad Gamma – Got The Funk?
12. Brad Gamma – Dancing The Dijig
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.
