What we're up to

Back safe from ZNA or another festival of your choice? Good :)
Back in January we'd promised the excellent Celestial Intelligence, the Prana Remixes and the reissue of the legendary Asia 2001's Psykadelia.


This commitment is now fulfilled and we've even had the time to release a very nice compilation: Aurora Sidera, which I'm not sure all of you had the time to check out before the summer, so I'll briefly talk about it again:

With this new compilation, we present something different. More psychedelic, acidic and crazy as usual, but of course, with a blissful melodic ending! 

We open the compilation with a pure groovy TB303 stormer by Skizologic. Skizologic is very active and respected on the Israeli scene, and close to the Zion604 label. We're very happy , he can show his wondrous skills here.
He' followed by another acidic tune, both fast and floating, by Nebula Meltdown who keeps having super ideas.
After that we get 2 Suntrip-newcomers (Dragon Twins & Morphic Resonance) who have already released excellent EPs on Ektoplazm and who present us here smashing psychedelic "Flying Rhino"-like 90s acid-trance!
E-Mantra's remix of Artifact303 is next with powerful smashing goa-trance! Just go and listen to it, you won't regret it :)
The second part of the compilation is more melodic.
First comes Crossing Mind in his specific twisted style. This is the kind track that might appear in his next album (2016?)
He's followed by 2 amazing spiraling morning trance tracks by Mindsphere and Celestial Intelligence. Now we're in the morning part of the compilation with two of the most devastating tracks we'v'e heard this year. These did make people burst in tears on the dancefloor! Listen to the break in the Mindpshere track, listen to the final surprise in the Celestial Intelligence'll understant what we mean!!!
The final track is a collaboration by French classic acts Denshi-Danshi and The Amtinaous, who are back for a first release since the 90s! This track is pure trance, melodic, acidic & beautiful.
This compilation is evidence Goa-trance keeps on evolving!




Back on the roadmap now: recently I was scrolling through our ongoing project list and I saw we'd assigned SUNCD46 whereas we'd just released SUNCD37. Clearly it was time to disclose our plans for the rest of the year...


Starting September 15th, we're going to release a digital EP (well, maybe a CDM too) from Night Hex called "Viziuni Nocturne" (Romanian for "Night Visions"). Night Hex is actually another moniker of Emanuel Carpus aka E-Mantra for his slower tracks. He's already released one track on "Echoes from the Void".

 Not really downtempo, just what you need to dance under the sun without struggling after a sleepless night :) The mastering is done, we're waiting for the cover.


Just after is going to be a retro album by a fantastic oldschool group: Denshi Danshi. One of the most talented duos of the POF era, the French authors of the unforgettable "Feed the Mugwumps" are back! And guess what? They haven't just dusted their old DAT tapes. They actually rebuilt their studio (they had everything in boxes for 15+ years) and together with The Amtinaous and the guys of Jelly Headz , they restarted making music. "Fluid Dynamics" will comprise  6 oldschool tracks, 1 remix, 1 rework, and 3 completely new tracks! First we wanted to make it a limited edition and we're happy it's going to be released broadly! The mastering of this one is done and artwork almost finished.


Back in January we were really unsure about RA. Christer had already produced a big part of this new album, but life had gone in the way...and it took (much) longer than expected. And two weeks ago we received a downtempo track and a VS with Menkalian/cosmic Dimension. As of today, I can write with certainty that the closing album of the trilogy is going to be released in 2015 and that there'll be a pyramid on the cover! As usual with RA you can expect superb shaped tracks with sun-in-your-heart melodies and climaxes.

That leaves us 3 months to figure out what to do with the 7.5 hours of fantastic music Mindsphere sent us !!!! 7,5, can you imagine? There's woudln't believe...We don't know if it will be in 2015 or 2016, but those of you who like high-end exhilarating climactic goatrance are in for a serious musical orgasm in the very next months.

Now Crossing Mind has settled in a village in the nature at the top of a mountain, he's also finished 3 hours of music and he's now giving the final touches on some of the tracks. It could well be a double album with an uptempo and a downtempo side. Also from Crossing Mind, we have the recording of a crazy live-act he did at our 10-years party. Will we release it as a digital-only teaser? We aren't sure of the formula yet.


Now, there's more WIP targetting 2016 :)

Morphic Resonance is working on an album and those who've seen him on stage have witnessed how skilled he is and how far his music is propelling the dancefloor! This one may well be our fer-de-lance release of 2016 !

We're in the talks with a famous oldschool French artist (with a name in T) to release his best/unreleased tracks. More on that soon.

Filteria is still working on his "secret project". Not sure how much I can disclose but those who saw him this summer may have heard hints :)

EtherealImba and Merr0w are also gearing up for their respective albums. They're at various stages of production, all pretty much advanced anyway.

And there's a couple of still secret things we won't be discussing today for various reasons.


As you can see, there's enough on our plate for one year! See you in a few days for the first extracts of Night Hex.

Happy new year 2015

The Suntrip team wishes you a happy new year 2015. May it bring you a strong health and stunning music !

Many things have changed in 2014. Suntrip is no longer two guys, we are now a cluster of people who are in charge of the music selection, orders, parties, youtube, facebook, bookings...

As far as releases are concerned, we have given our DJs the tools to better access promos and make tracks selections, which will obviously end up on greater compilations, and more opportunities for producers, like digital releases.

On the mainstream release sfront, we'll start the year with Celestial Intelligence's album "Perpetual Energy". And energy, there is, in these 75 minutes of pure newschool goa trance made by a very strong duo from Kumanovo, Macedonia!

Check the extracts.

01 Into The Depths Of Illusion
02 Divine Miracles
03 Constant Motion
04 Anapa
05 Celestial Beings
06 1001 Reasons
07 Gray Matter
08 A Different Story
09 Perpetual Energy

Later, we'll release a set of Prana remixes on CD together with Masturi.

There's the long awaited re-issue of Asia 2001 Psykadelia of course (no, we haven't forgotten about it, we were just too busy in 2014)

We had RA on the phone a few days ago and he promised he'd complete his album for 2015!

And last but not least, we're going to release a retro album by a fantastic oldschool group: Denshi Danshi. From France, one of the most talented duos of the POF era, the authors of the unforgettable "Feed the Mugwumps" is back! Expect great unreleased tunes and maybe new productions too!

There may be more: Mindsphere, Crossing Mind, Ethereal, and others are working on more crazy music for 2015 or 2016.


Stay tuned and once again, we all wish you an exhilarating year 2015 !!

Happy new year in the sunshine!

The Suntrip team and its friends (Trance Dimensions, Neogoa, Shiva trance, DI.FM, 4CN Studios....) wish you a happy new year 2014!

There's no denying 2013 was a tough one, there were hardships, doubts, and eventually we achieved a wonderful year with some of our best releases to date (Nebula Meltdown, Filteria, Cosmic Dimension, Dimension 5...). Thanks to the artists who worked so hard to blow our minds.

I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all those who've supported me during the treatment of the cancer that's been striking me since march; from the artists who dedicated me their works (Xerxes, Filteria, Merr0w...) to those anonymous people who wrote us or expressed in person their concern and support. Respects, I can assure you it helped. Also, Anoebis, my partner in crime, rose up to the challenge of managing Suntrip all alone during 6 months. Hats off :)


Now, 2014 will mark the 10th birthday of Suntrip. This is amazing... When we started on July 17th 2004, we never thought we go this far. But our brillant artists and our awesome audience showed Goatrance was still in the trancer's hearts.

Now we are standing on 32 releases over 10 years of existence, and this calls for a celebration: We will be doing a Suntrip 10 years world tour! Details will follow soon but you can expect to see us in 2014 in Germany, Japan, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, UK, and more!


Apart from that, we'll be starting the year with E-Mantra's new album: Nemesis!

Magician Emanuel Carpus decided to experiment with new sounds and the result is a 7th album that goes back to his "Arcana" roots, but in a darker, twisted, melodic and superpsychedelic way! Oscillating between hypnotic & acidic themes, Nemesis won't let you breathe a second! A mindblowing experience.

We'll also release a special multi-CD celebration compilation with original uptempo and downtempo tracks and remixes of Suntrip artsts by Suntrip artists!!!!

We are also waiting for the wizards or RA to complete their new album...we're constantly in contact with them and we're very confident it will happen this year, at last!!!

Many other projects are in the pipe, and there's some we can't unveil just yet. But be confident we'll be doing our best to make you dance out of your mind this year again!


Thanks for your support, enjoy 2014.

fabien mars & anoebis.

PS: you can still benefit from the EOY for a few days, don't hesitate to visit our shop.

Happy New Year

The Suntrip Team sends you their best sunshine wishes.

We hope 2013 will be a healthy and wealthy year for you and your families.

We also expect you to have nice psychedelic moments. On our side, we'll start with Dimension5 in just a few weeks (more on that when we know the release date). This album, called "TransAddendum" will be made of unreleased tunes...and there will be a surprise too :)

After that: Filteria and RA !!! These two highly acclaimed headliners are almost ready for their 4th album. If you've seen them playing live recentely, well, you know what that means :)

More? Nebula Meltdown has a pretty advanced album now. We also have a pretty wicked compilation in mind. Other artists we usually work with are working hard too: E-Mantra, Khetzal (yes he's back!), Antares, Ethereal...

Anyway, no sure plans yet but you know what's in the pipe and we'll make our best to send you to the stars!


The good news: for the 9th year in a row, Suntrip CDs will stay at 10€. And the sale rule (1 Suntrip CD offered for 3 purchased) remains in place for the moment. And we still have a few original Goasia, Ka-Sol, Khetzal, Apsara, Filteria, so don't hesitate.

The bad news: stamps. As usual, bpost had increased their crazy fares by 4%. Shipping one CD to Europe is supposed to cost you 3.39€ (resp 4.02€ for the rest of the World). However, similarly as in 2012, we've acquired hundreds of stamps in advance, which will make you benefit from a discount...on the 2012 prices, yeah. Above 4 CDs we have to align on current parcel prices though. In other words:

Shipping 1 CD 2-3 CDs <=10CDs
Belgium 1.30€ 1.95€ 6.40€
Europe 2.97€ 5.94€ 12.90€
World 3.57€ 7.14€ 21.50





Oh ah and our releases will still be digitally available on iTunes, Amazon, etc, and on our shop of course.

See you soon!

Suntrip server upgrade


We are running out of diskspace on our server and it's also slowing down due to the total number of visits on,,,, and other non-music related ones.

We have agreed with the datacenter owner to move to a new faster, bigger, server (hey, thanks this time again).

We are now installing everything and moving the data's and when all is ready in a few days, we shall switch from the old to the new server. The only thing you should notice is an improvement in performance. But, hey, that's computers, so there's always a chance of hiccups :)


Ah and, at last, we're working again seriously on the next version of First there will be a nice design, bugfixes and an improvement on performance. That's for October. Then we'll focus on adding new functionalities. That's for November.

See you soon!

Certificate problems: solved

Our complaint was heard!

The new Suntrip SSL certificate was delivered last night and installed this morning.

The encrypted part of the Suntrip site (the whole shop/ordering chain basically) is now accepted again on all browsers!

Certificate problems


If you're using a recent browser version and if you're trying to order on our site, maybe you've been struck by an alert saying our SSL certificate was revoked.

Right, but not so harmful. Originally, it's because of a decision from some authorities to reissue with a higher level of security all SSL certificates generated with a given scheme. That scheme is breakable under certain conditions. That said, you're never going to enter your credit card number on the Suntrip site (you might only enter it on at the payment stage) so all an attacker would be able to decrypt (theoretically) is your order contents and customer details.

We've been struggling to get that renewal since June 2011(!). But our original certificate got definitely revoked on June 30th 2012 as certificate vendors had planned, and we got really frustrated it finally had an impact on our customers.

This week we complained hard to our certificates provider and hopefully the problem should be solved by the end of the week.


...Stand by, in less than a week we're going to detail our next releases - yes with samples - yes with dates...
