Why the Mouth of Madness !?

Some of you have noticed that the Morphic Resonance track "In The Mouth Of Madness" bears similarities with Cydonia's "Why".

We need to clarify something here: "In The Mouth Of Madness" was originally intended by Cristian to be a tribute to Cyndonia. As the composition evolved Cristian added his own elements that made it a different track, but some core elements were still recognizable (bass, rhythmic arrangement).

 

Whether "In The Mouth Of Madness" is a remix is "Why" remains subject to discussion. Though, in the heat of the release preparation, the Cydonia guys weren't contacted (contrary to the S.U.N. project guys, from which we got full support, thanks).

 

For those who may be too young to know about them, Cydonia used to be one of the top leading Goa bands back in the days. Signed under the stellar Blue Room Released and Atomic Records, they had this twisted, dark, industrial, sometimes funky touch that made it so recognizable from the rest of the Goatrance output back then. I saw them in Paris in 1999 and they rocked (what remained of) the dancefloor.
Cydonia was Iain Rive, Steve Ronan and Dino Psaras, who were also involved in other killer projects such as Semsis, Universal Sound, Tortured Brain, Ayahuasca, B.E.T.H... We strongly advise you to go and listen to their EP's and albums.

As you know, many oldschool artists are starting to tour again and Iain Rive told me it was his plan as well. So we wanted to make it clear that if you happen to hear a tune that reminds you of "In The Mouth Of Madness" at some party, it's actually the other way around !

Respect, Cydonia!

Some forthcoming plans...

Hello

Thank you !

First we would like to thank you very much for all the nice words we received for the wondrous Morphic Resonance release!

Please don't forget to support the artist. The release is available in a number of stores:

...and many many others
...and every digital distributor too (iTunes, Play, Amazon, Beatport, Spotify....)
 
 

The Goa Trance Overview by Suntrip Records

Did you ever wonder how the sales are of goa-labels? How much is digital, how much cd? Is the cd really dying? Are labels struggling?
Suntrip Records opens all his official sales for the public... Have a look & share!
 
 

The Boom Tickets

Following the -legitimate- reduciton int he number of sold tickets (from 60000+ in 2014 to 33333 this year) for security and manageability reasons, the Boom was basically sold out before the end of 2015. Belgium is a small country with a big Goa fans base and unfortunately, we only had 40 tickets. A nightmare to explain that to hundreds of frustrated people.
We are going to receive extra tickets but our waiting list is already so long that we're sure they're already all gone...
 

The Boom Lineup

Boom has decided not to disclose their lineup prior to the start of the festival, but we can announce who is going to play at Suntrip:
  • Crossing Mind (Live act with live tablet-based soft-synth tweaking)
  • Filteria (Live act with live synth tweaking)
  • Anoebis (DJ set)

Oh and I'll put an end to a 19 year old curse and will manage be there too. Don't hesitate to come and say hello.

 

And what are our future plans ?

I just realized we hadn't communicated over the releases of 2016. Certainly because we were pretty depressed after the terrorist attacks... But you should really know, it's utterly exciting !
 

June 2016 : "XXXX - Live at Suntrip 10th Birthday, April 2014"

We are working on a yet-secret digital-only release with one artist, on a "Name your price basis". It will be a recorded live-act for the core fans wanting to hear how an artist edits his tracks prior to a live act, and there will be a couple of beta versions of yet-unreleased tracks too !!!
 

September 2016: "Crossing Mind - Duality"

Stéphane is going to play at the Boom Festival and he's currently polishing again and again a collection of his new tracks ! And we'll release all of them just after!!! Be repapred for some serious psychedelia.
 

October/November 2016: "RA - Earthcall"

YES, the album title is now chosen, and Ivan 'Richpa' Paric is working on the artwork. AT LAST, RA is going to relase his long awaited 4th album, and it will probably be the last one, and obviously a future instant-classic :)
 

End 2016 / Early 2017: Imba - "First Encounter", Mindsphere - "Seclusion", Merr0w - "Fractal Octopus", K.O.B. - "Kind Of Behaviour" ?

We have at least 4 releases more or less complete and we're yet unable to tell which one is going to be completely ready first. Imba seems the most advanced at the moment, but Mindsphere's downtempo opus is also pretty much ready.
Besides, Merr0w has a storng album base already, and K.O.B. (Filteria's side project) has delivered us a groovy >1-hour promo.
 

2017-2018

There will certainly be a new Compilation, the last part of Mindsphere's Mental Triplex, and I can already tell there's a LOT activity in Kumanovo/Macedonia, if you see what I mean...
For those who have been reading us for a long time, there's also an Ethereal album on the shelves, the guys are taking their time, let's be patient...
 
Have a sunny week-end !

Summer is coming... And Morphic Resonance too.

In 10 days from now we'll be releasing the debut album of Morphic Resonance, "The City of Moons"!
 
 
Christian Morphic Fernandez is a 28-year-old genius from Girona, Spain, and he's about to flip your goatrance references big time with his debut album, “The City Of Moons”!
 
Morphic Resonance has been deeply influenced by the sound of Etnica/Pleiadians, Shidapu, Tim Schuldt, UX, Fitleria, and he mainly works with an analog gear. His live performances are known for ramming the dancefloors with relentless rhythmic work, crazy acid lines and stunning melodies.
 
Since we're at a loss for words, we're just inviting you to listen to the samples on the release page! Enjoy!

Toï Doï - Synaptoc Electrophoresis is out !

Spring is a complete new league in terms of energy. Let's celebrate it :)

Suntrip & DAT Records joined forces to release a banging old school goa-trance release of Toï Doï !

 


French veteran Gilles Coia is known since the 90s, releasing over 5 albums on various labels ! We managed to dig into old archives of the late 90s and early 2000s, and this is the result : darker, super psychedelic old schoolish goa-trance !

 The album starts with long, hypnotic, darker goa-trance tracks, slowly entering more melodic, spiralling territories ! The second part has more twisted, but still melodic, tracks with unexpected turns allover the place.

Everyone who likes their goa-trance different… This is your chance ! Back to the twisted, more psychedelic 90s ! Rush to our shop, and enjoy the madness!

And yet again...

Yet again, one of our home countries has been struck by imbecility and obscurantism.

We said all we had to say back in November and we stand on our statement:

Where are the Boom Tickets?

Hello
The Boom Ambassadors ticket sale is supposed to have started today. But you've seen there's none for sale on our shop.
Given the amount of emails and phone calls this morning, a clarification is needed.
 
Back in December, the Boom realized they were going to be sold out soon, so they allowed us to put a "reservation" list in place. And so we kept writing the names of those inquiring as they came.
 
Since then we're between 300 and 400 inquiries, each for 1 to 6 tickets. Naturally our meager ticket quota is long gone now.
And that covers the next phase tickets as well.
 
Every other Boom Ambassador I know is in the same situation. We're really sorry for this. On the other hand, we're happy to see the Boom be a victim of its success.
That said, keep in mind there were 60.000 people at the Boom 2014 and it was barely manageable (that's the terms the Boom guys used last time I called them). Clearly, limiting to 33.333 tickets is not an easy decision for them, but it is for the greater good, and to ensure a nicer Boom experience.
 
Our advice is to keep on watching the Boom and Boom Ambassadors Facebook pages in case something, anything, comes up.

SUNCD39 Will be Mindsphere's

You've certainly already read about it on social networks, our next release, due in the first half of February will be the new Mindpshere album.
 
For the impatient ones, you may directly jump to the extracts here :)
 
Mindsphere, one of today’s big maestros of melodic old school influenced goa-trance is back with the first installment of a trilogy!
 
Ali Akgun, from Turkey, is already known from his earlier albums on Suntrip and Metapsychic Records. But now, he started with his Magnus Opus. A cd-trilogy with the name "Mental Triplex"! This release is part one called "Presence". It unfolds a spiritual journey into the power of old school goa melodies!
Soon, part 2, "Seclusion" will be a peaceful ambient voyage, while "Beyond" will focus on other colorful dimensions and spaces!
 
"Presence" took Ali almost 2 years to write... And you can hear that. The harmonies and melodic structures are of a unique quality! The album builds with some old school oriental influenced uplifting tracks… Followed by more powerful storming goa-monsters to rip the dancefloor apart. The last part of the album makes you land in a blisfull morning! Deep, entrancing subtle morning music to float like never before! 
 
Like usual, you know what to expect from Suntrip. High quality modern goa-trance for a melody-loving crowd!
