The Dark Side Of Goa, is the fifth release of DiscoValley Records. This release from 2006 is one of the best released that year. With such a pool of artists the excitement to listen to this CD is big.

But let us hear “The Dark Side Of Goa”:

Multiverse (T1) is an excellent opener for this CD. This multilayered track, is fantastic, this is top notch Russian music. It begins with some samples speaking about multiple universes; sample these, which were also used by Protoculture, in one of his tracks if I am not mistaken. The leads in this one are electric type, mixed with some twilight reverberations. This tune is full of sounds; it’s kind of aggressive, but very appellative for the dance floor. Favourite.

Lsd (T2), the magic potion, is the name of the track that follows, and it is produced by Fraktal Noise. And indeed this seems music orientated to the psychoactive substance, such are the trippy sounds contained in this music. We start this track in a very calm way, with some spacey sounds here and there and some hypnotic elements on the mixture; but this is only the appetiser, because the track soon takes other proportions and we are introduced into more wicked and peculiar sounds, but always having that space atmosphere on the background. And a funny thing is that we can also hear in some parts of the track the phone ringing. Favourite.

Now we hear Innersound with Shadows (T3). Listening to Stravos is being brought into technoid ambients, mixed with some industrial sounds. This track is rather calm than his usual works, and somehow minimalist.

Witch’s Sabbath (T4), is the work of Candy Power. A tenebrous environment revolves around this track, conferring it a spooky atmosphere. If you are connoisseur of Dominator works, you can hear his work on the percussive elements, since he is a member of Candy Power project.

The Source (T5) is the product of Metallaxis. This project is composed by Polyphonia and Kulu – so if you have heard them, you know what to expect: alien’s music. This is indeed music from another planet. They are one of the weirdest projects I have ever heard, and they create the most peculiar and bizarre leads you can think of, but they never loose the sense of becoming to extremist or too strange. This is music orientated to the dance floor to create chaos, and make big trips on the brain. Favourite.

Dimitri Santas, the man behind the Dark Elf project present us Sauron’s Madness (T6). This is forest music, spacey, hypnotic, sometimes vague and melodical. There are also some leads, or samples, that rings a bell of people chanting, on a smooth way and mixed with the chanting, it reminds me, water sounds. We can also hear on this track, some samples from the movie Lord Of The Rings of Peter Jackson. I dig the marriage of the music, with the samples from the movie. Favourite.

Now we come to a super favourite of the CD.
Fraktal Noise with Goa (T7). I think this is one of those tracks that make justice to Goa - one of the birth places of our beloved music. This is trippy music at its best level. Funny, that when I heard this music from the first time, I thought the BPM´s of this one would be 150 or above, because the leads are very fast, but when I checked the BPM´s I saw only 145! The environment here is “explosive”, it is simply delicious; the percussive elements give a nice feeling to the tune, but the ripping leads, almost like scratching in the brain are the main dish. Favourite.

Now we come to the longest tune of the compilation. This is a Vs track, between Metallaxis and Terminator (May he Rest In Peace). When we ally the psychedelic created by Zolod Terminator, to the one created by Metallaxis, we get a super tune. For several times I have lost myself listening to this tune, having amazing voyages imbued on this track. The leads just rip me from my seat, and believe me, that it is hard to describe this music; my dictionary doesn’t have enough words to describe certain leads. One thing that I can describe, and you can expect also, is a lot of work on the percussive elements – lots of going ups and downs, and speeding up and slowing down the tune, that make it even more interesting. 8:29 minutes of pure massive pleasure. THE favourite of the compilation.

And in an instance we are in the final track of the compilation: Innersound with Fuck The System (T9). This one is more dynamic and lively that its sister. It turned out to be very trippy and full of little noises throughout the track awarding the tune with a chaotic arrangement.

The mastering of this compilation was made by Xenomorph, at Xenomorph studio, Berlin.

The artwork was made by Polygon. The cover reminds me the plans of mathematical figures, coloured on the different faces to give a more clear vision of the 3D figures. One thing is for certain, Discovalley when it comes to covers for their CD’s they always present something challenging for the eyes. The CD inside cover shares the same thematic.

To conclude my review, I just want to say that this is another awesome release from Discovalley Records. The pool of artists changed a little bit from the one presented in Hasta Las Patillas, and even the sound is different too, but the quality is there. If you are a collector of their music, this one is a must have.
