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

Hello

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

We have agreed with the datacenter owner to move to a new faster, bigger, server (hey online.net, 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 Suntriprecords.com. 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

Hello

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 paypal.com 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...

Past, Present and Future

Actually we'll be talking a lot about the future :)

Past

Daze of Our Lives, the 3rd album of Filteria is out of stock. Definitely. If you can still find it new somewhere online, it won't be for long. So we can only expect Filteria to complete the highly expected 4th opus for 2013. Please send him your support as it's probably his biggest challenge now :)

Sundrops, our 2008 compilation and Arcana by E-Mantra will be soon gone too. We have a few dozen copies left, don't miss yours.
To Sirius
, the first album of RA is also almost gone (2 copies left) and apparently those we got were the very last ones...
The next in line are Astral Experience by Afgin and the Temple of Chaos compilation but you have the time...

 

Present

First we would like to thank you for the support with the new Crossing Mind album "The Inner Shiift'. Although opinions are contrasted we are still convinced this one will become a classic! If you are a promoter, well, just invite the guy. He's a cream and he will blow your dancefloor!

If you share our opinion, please submit your reviews on Psynews.org, Istratrance, etc.

 

Second, I'm still working on the rework of our website, but real life (and the 10-month baby that's part of it) are making things slower. It's getting really close though, please be patient.

 

Third, a small reminder that we are Boom Festival ambassadors for this year and we're selling tickets near you! This is your chance to attend one of the biggest psychedelic gatherings worldwide, taking place in Idana-a-Nova in Portugal every other year in August, and featuring the finest psytrance artists! Rush to our online shop to purchase your tickets and check the Boom Website for all sorts of useful infos :)

Ah, important, we don't have a physical shop. If you came knowcking because someone told you there's a shop at the Suntrip addresses in Gent or Brussels, you're the victim of an urban legend. Better write or call beforhand and set an appointment, because that's our personal addresses!!

In case of questions, please submit them to boom@sunriprecords.com . We have tickets in parties too (see DJ Anoebis).

 

Fourth, you are awaited at the Sol Invictus daytime open air party near Antwerpen next saturday May 12th.

10-12h Deep & Drone Ambient to wake up with
12-14h Pavane (ambient) - Suntrip Rec (BE)
14-16h ***Solar Fields*** LIVE (downtempo) - Ultimae records (SW)
05) 16-18h Anoebis (oldschool) - Suntrip Rec (BE)
18-21h ***RA*** 3h LIVE (oldschool) - Suntrip Rec (NO)
21-23h Yani (oldschool) - Suntrip Rec (BE)
23-01h Agneton & Lotus (nitzho) - Sita Rec (BE)
01-03h Mystika (full on) (NL)

As you can see Suntrip is highly represented and there will be 2 outstanding performances by Solar Fields and RA showcasing some of his new album's tracks!!!

 

Future

Precisely, RA is working hard for his 3rd album codename SUNCD27. For the moment we've only heard a few extracts, and that's why we're eagerly waiting for the Sol Invictus party next week-end! That's going to be an experience! When will it be released? We don't know ourselves (crossing fingers for the end of 2012) but we'll ask him repeatedly :)

It's almost sure we'll release Mindsphere's second album before that, around September. Actually "Patience for Heaven" (SUNCD26) is complete and Ali is bringing some final changes now. Then Richpa, who brought us the Crossing Mind cover is going to provide this album's artwork too. There's something I'm not telling you about "Patience for Heaven" and...you'll know when you see the tracklist héhéhéhé!

Other plans? Many, but we always leave artists work in peace, so there's no dates. At the latest call, Nebula Meltdown, Filteria, Daimon aka Antares, E-Mantra, Merr0w, and even Khetzal (pray with us) are working on albums or compilation tracks, without mentioning the scores of awesome promos we got recently (yes we owe you feedback, pardon us) !!!

Hmm ah yes we are slowly working on another compilation and we even have half of it in our sleeves. We really want to give you shivers with that one! This might become SUNCD28 in 2013. So far away? Yeah but read what's following...

 

You've probably noticed Suntrip releases (only) 3-4 high quality CD releases per year. These releases are also available in digital shops, and that's all. This is fine but caused us to miss a few very good tracks & releases lately. Some artists just don't want to wait more than one year before they have a slot with us. We undertsand that. There's also superb 4/5-tracks promos whose artist doesn't want to make it an album. We happen to pick one track for a compilation and the rest is often lost. That's a shame!

So we thought about ways of releasing more good music with the little time we have, and without bargaining quality for quantity. We ended up on two new formulas: 1) very limited CD releases focussed on very good promising artists and dedicated to core Goatrance sceners. 2) Digital-only EPs. Clearly the goal isn't money here. The goal is to give more artists their chance to be heard and play under the Suntrip name!!

So expect SUNLTxx and SUNDGxx in the future! The near future, may I say, because we're probably going to start with a limited 300-copys of someone featured on Shaltu :) More about that very soon.

Have a sunny May!

News from around the Sun

Hello

First, a small reminder that we are Boom Festival ambassadors for this year and we're selling tickets near you! For those who lived under a rock the last dozen years, Boom Festival is one of the biggest psychedelic gatherings worldwide, taking place in Idana-a-Nova in Portugal every other year in August, and featuring the finest psytrance artists! Check the Boom Website for all sorts of useful infos :)

Since April 7th, the presales price is 160€, which is still 20€ less than at the gates. So don't hesitate, all the more as we're cheaper than Boom themselves as we don't charge the 5€ tax/fee!!!

Just rush to our shop to purchase your tickets! Other countries of origin are accepted too naturally. In case of questions, please submit them to boom@sunriprecords.com . We have tickets in parties too (see DJ Anoebis).

 

Second, the new Crossing Mind album "The Inner Shift" will be released next week. We're very excited about it, and even though we've heard the tracks fro months, we keep listening to them every day.

Oh and wait, there's a release party! The open air Param?tm? (daytime) party on April 21st at Fort 2, Wommelgem, Belgium is for you!
Live:
Crossing Mind (Suntrip) video
Khetzal (Suntrip)
Afgin (Suntrip) video

Psygasus (GanjaTree)
Trance Dance

Mantradeli (Cronomi)
Anoebis (Suntrip)
Pavane (Suntrip)
Polyesta (No-Records)

 

Third, we managed to get a few copies of two excellent oldschool releases: Astral Projection - Dancing Galaxy and California Sunshine - Wonderland. The first one is one of the best Psychedelic releases ever, the second one is an odyssey through the wonders of Goatrance! If you don't have them, you can stop blaming yourself: go and get them! Oh and before you regret it, pay attention our stock of RA - To Sirius is getting critically low (7 copies left).
