V.A. Lo-land/Hi-tech_-_Next Generation of Dutch Psytrance (Sonic Dragon rec.)

Deep in the far north west corner of the European continent lies the low lands, a country built by people over the centuries from swamp and built up from the sea. They call it the Netherlands, and it has grown to become known across the planet as a country of tolerance and open-mindedness. A hub for travellers, both physical and mental, Holland has long been a melting pot of psychedelic ideas, and from this pot Sonic Dragon has served a balanced meal of healthy trance goodness to suite any palette.

We begin with Liftshift, one of Holland's most promising progressive artists, with a release due later this year on X-Dream's G-plus label. Here he gives us "Contracting Waves", a hypnotic driving tune that builds and pulls, leading smoothly into "Eating Movies", from Drexl. Drexl is the solo project of Bart Matthias, a long time collaborator of Jocid, with whom he has compiled this album. His track is a slow building number with a pushing bassline and soft melodies. Next, we have a rocking, funky track from Zen Mechanics, without a doubt one of the hottest acts from Holland right now, with releases on labels such as Crystal Matrix and Iboga, and is now signed to Neurobiotic for his debut album.

Following on from this is Cyrus the Virus + Sono Loco. Cyrus the Virus needs no introduction, and his many tracks from compilations and his own album on GMS' Spun Records have been played by DJs on dancefloors across the globe. Next is Loki, the solo project of Alistair Johnston, co-promotor with Zen Mechanics of the Triphazard parties in Amsterdam. He gives us a twisted track with staccato rythmns and a pumping bassline. Then it's on to the Rev Particle, the new project from Troy Leidich, who is well known by his previous releases as Fungus of Light on Doof Records. Here he brings us the dripping, rolling "Scheldezoi".

Then we see the return of Synchro, already a legend for his ten years at the cutting edge of psychedelic trance music. "Star Spangled" is a rolling, psychedelic guitar-driven track that may sound a little familiar to any Hendrix fans. Next we hear Zebra-N, another of Holland's emerging underground trance stars, with tracks appearing on Doof Records and Ketuh Records compilations. "Souperman" is in his trademark twisted psychedelic style, and should please fans of the darker night sound. Finishing off the compilation is Jocid, collaborating here with PsychoBit (expect an album from these two soon) for a melodic, stomping full on track to finish off the journey with a bang!

RELEASE NOTES

Deep in the far north west corner of the European continent lays the low lands, a country built by people over the centuries from swamp and built up from the sea. They call it the Netherlands (Holland), and it has grown to become known across the planet as a country of tolerance and open-mindedness. A hub for travellers, both physical and mental, Holland has long been a melting pot of psychedelic ideas, and from this pot Sonic Dragon has served a balanced meal of healthy trance goodness to suite any palette.

We begin with Liftshift, one of Holland's most promising progressive artists, with a release due later this year on X-Dream's G-plus label. Here he gives us "Contracting Waves", a hypnotic driving tune that builds and pulls, leading smoothly into "Eating Movies", from Drexl. Drexl is the solo project of Bart Mattias, a long time collaborator of Jocid, with whom he has compiled this album. His track is a slow building number with a pushing bassline and soft melodies. Next, we have a rocking, funky track from Zen Mechanics, without a doubt one of the hottest acts from Holland right now, with releases on labels such as Crystal Matrix and Iboga, and is now signed to Neurobiotic for his debut album.
