Look what's going to be released during ZNA...

Battle of the Future Buddhas is back, and its nothing like you heard of them before! They are going to play at the ZNA Gathering and we're going to celebrate that by releasing their latest album there on August 19th! They were inspired by the music played on the beaches of goa in the early 90s, and revived their interpretation of that spirit! Deeper, slower, more groovy, melodic &acidic old school goa-trance!

Check the samples and preorder here!

These days Battle Buddhas' music is mostly made by Swedish pioneer David Tingsgård, active in the scene since the mid 90s! He released over 5 albums before on labels like Boom! Records and Schlabbaduerst and is mostly known for his melodic forest-trance music. With this album they take definitely a new direction, although you will recognise their typical sound-signature without a doubt!

The album opens with the Crane & Kraftpakket. These tracks are more on the classic side of goa-trance. A bit faster, harmonic and with classic 303's floating around! After the openers we go deeper and slower into melodic territories. The tempo keeps going down but the groove gets fatter and fatter, just as the melodies! Tracks like Ghost and Life Behind the Sun are definately morning-goa with that unique Buddha-touch. The album ends with some tracks like Disco Valley and Tenderlion that have a bit of proto-goa influence. Back to Basics!

Blowing your mind with Median Project

Hello,

We've been pretty silent - at least here - as we wanted to give you enough time ot process the Total Eclipse release and the Classic Goa tracks avalanche :)

But today is special: we're releasing a stellar sci-fi killer album : Median Project - Constellation

Median Project, Russian Sergey Petrenko, is one of the new big talents in Goa Trance!
His music is powerful, acidic, psychedelic and has epic melodies allover. Perfect dancefloor material with a big hint to classical goa of the 90s! We would even dare to describe it as Astral Projection meets Mindsphere!
Some goa-freaks will know his music already, as he released an album not too long ago on Global Sect, but for his next adventure, on Suntrip, he prepared something stellar!

The opening track, "Antidote" is an epic morning monster! Harmonies allover! Why starting with such a track? Well... Check out the Dancing Galaxy-album of Astral Projection and you'll understand! After that you will get some more powerful dancefloor material: Strong kicks, a massive groove, a lot of sound effects, spiralling melodies and psychedelic details in the background! We bet that the "Infinite Space" track will even become a classic!
The second part of the album is a bit more on the morning-side again! Several Emotional and euphorical melodies, dancing with eachother creating a beautiful sunrise story, like in the "Sunrise" or "Constellation of Aries" tracks!
If you like beauiful classical melodic goa-trance, this album is definitely something for you!

Check the samples and get the music NOW in our shop or on bandcamp !

Welcome to Classic Goa Trax !

Today we are introducing Classic Goa Trax. It's a sublabel of Suntrip Records, and not just "a" sublabel, but thé sublabel for all goa-lovers! 

We noticed a serious amount of old school goa releases are unavailable these days. Nowhere to find in full quality and extremely expensive on discogs. Because of that we had a talk with many of the artists and a lot of them were ok to re-release their old stuff digital with us! So what can we offer:

  • Digital re-releases of classic goa-trance albums, vinyls and singles!
  • Bandcamp and every other possible source: itunes, beatport, spotify,...

For now we agreed around 35 cds already, and we will upload 1 every week for now! The schedule of april looks like this:

15th of April: California Sunshine - Trance

22th of April: One Man Game - Total Trance

29th of April: Prana - Cyclone

 

And you will be able to buy this music on every online site around that date. Be sure to check on our dedicated Facebook page!

Presenting Total Eclipse, Live

Dear Suntrippers, today we are announcing a very special release: a live recording from one of the pioneers of the Goa Trance gente: Total Eclipse !
This legendary and versatile Goatrance project from Bordeaux, used to deliver crazy fully-live performances throughout the world.
Since 1996 and it Violent Relaxation album, Total Eclipse had reached an enormous success and had been touring the world. But in 1998 they were  showcasing a whole set of new tracks, some of which are yet unreleased, and in general significantly different than the actual released versions!
Suntrip is proud to present a recording of such a unique performance, in the mythic "Liquid Room" in Tokyo, Japan, on April 11th 1998.

It will be release on April 1st 2019, 21 years later, but the samples are here !


The live starts with "Electro Gizmo" an unreleased track, in its live form... its pretty atmospheric vibe gently warms you up before going totally crazy with those typical Total Eclipse melodies! Going forward, "Defrost", also unheard of, alternates dancefloor hammering sequences strings.
That was just the beginning, because "Kikamboot", another superb unreleased track, sends you directly to crazy utopia-land with a rain of acid lines! Imagine the Japanese crowd experiencing this!
Mind you, the Frenchmen weren't just going to play some of their hits without heavily reworking them, and to that effect, they slap you in the face with a superb live rework of "Partycles", an extra-long version of "Sunrise" and a surprising remix of the ultra-classic "Collapsar" from the iconic BRO33 EP!
Halfway into the performance, time to get funky with a slight edit of "Miyukette". The multi-faceted emotional track, made with a Japanese girl must have done wonders on the Liquid Room floor!
Next up, a super Classic: "Chaotic Circus" in a shorter, sharper, live-tweaked version is going to blow you away!
Since we're into classics, you're going to enjoy just as much this "Free Lemonade" Live, and a supercharged "Space Clinic" that seems to propel this recording into a more morning mood....though, when you're facing the crazy Tokyo crowd, you have to kick ass till the end...and "Are You Abducted" which was unreleased at the time must have made a hell of an impression!
And for the few still standing, Total Eclipse had an acid-loaded edit of "Psychedelic Terrorist" up their sleeve! Call an ambulance!!!

Total Eclipse opened its DAT archive, and it's for the greater good. Through this amazing recording you can get a glimpse of the group's unique creativity and energy.

 

Interestingly enough, Stéphane Holweck the band leader, also gave us DV tapes and we found several sequences taken in Japan. In one of them, the band plays the same live, probably a couple of days before or after the Liquid Room performance! Really nice vibes here!

Happy New Year 2019

Suntrippers, Apsarans,

The whole Suntrip team wishes you an outstanding year 2019 !!
May it bring you lots of joy and enlightenment. And health above all !

 

2018 was a pretty extreme year for us both personnally and professionnally. In the end Apsara was a success, we found closure for some of our personal ordeals, and karma kicked-in at the right moment :) We learned a lot.

 

In 2019 we'll focus mostly on music, but even though the next Apsara will only happen in 2020, you'll be rewarded with parties :)

We'll start the year with the mighty Psylent Buddhi album, tracks that were thought to be lost forever and that some crazy collectors helped us recover !

Next we'll probably release our "secret project". The annoucmeent should come soon now :)

It's always hard to be 100% sure of what we're going to release, inspiration is a curious thing as you know. We have a dozen albums at various stages of completion, but those which are most likely to make it in 2019 are Celestial Intelligence's second opus "Incandescent", Median Project's "Constellation" and Sykespico's debut !
Other ongoing projects include Triquetra, Filteria, Cosmic Dimension, Etheral (that's not a recurrent joke), Battle Of The Future Buddhas...you see, no matter what happens, that'll still be amazing music!

 

2019 is also the year we celebrate our 15 years of existence! Anoebis and Ouwe Gouwe are working hard right now at setting up a tour with great promoters around the globe! Be sure to check our FB page for regular infos about that.

Happy 2019 !

"The 50th Parallel" is coming

Hello Dear Suntrippers,

You've heard about it, you talked about it...for a long time we've been planning some sort of "celebration" compilation for our 50th release and we'd reserved the cat number SUNCD50 for it.

You probably wondered why we'd jumped from Morpic's SUNCD49 to E-Mantra's SUNCD51 and then released Denshi Danshi's SUNCD52 too. Well, a compilation is more work than an album and due to several constraints, including the Apsara Festival, we couldn't make it before the summer. We reworked the concept a bit and now we're happy with the result, we can announce it for the early days of December 2018: "The 50th Parallel" which will be officially opening our 15th year as a Goatrance label!

If you don't know what the title refers to, know we started Suntrip on July 14th 2004, in my car, during one of those mythical Shishu parties happening at the border of France and Belgium, which was  pretty easy for both Jos and I to reach. And it happens it was really close to the globe's 50th Parallel. We only realized it in September whilst looking for a title to SUNCD50. We couldn't miss that symbol :)

Let's cut to the chase: "The 50th Parallel" a 2-cd compilation with only the best modern goa-trance in all its facets!
We decided to dedicate the first cd to the fantastic world of sunshine and melodies! You like your goa-trance powerful, melodic, emotional and floating? Then our first cd will be your taste for sure! Modern goa-trance legends such as Khetzal, Crossing Mind and Cosmic Dimension are combined with the new talents Triquetra, Sykespico, Hada, Clementz and Median Project! 

The second cd is something else: The moon started to shine and the atmosphere changed to something more ominous! Still powerful and somehow melodic, but with a darkish, more evil touch. Our definition of nightish music! Of course you will find our usual suspects here with Ka-Sol, Battle Buddhas or Morphic Resonance. But here also we found some amazing new talents such as Cosmic Serpent, Everything Turns, Proxeeus and Hada! 

Tracklist:

1.1 KhetzaL - Garden of Nyagrodha Trees
1.2 Cosmic Dimension - Deviant Behaviour
1.3 Triquetra - Electronomic
1.4 Sykespico - Visit Earth
1.5 Hada - Emaginary
1.6 Crossing Mind - Over Time Frame
1.7 Clementz - Trilafon
1.8 Median Project - Life Line

2.1 Battle Of the Future Buddhas - Faster Than Light
2.2 Cosmic Serpent - Fractal Colors
2.3 Everything Turns - Darkness Falls
2.4 Proxeeus - ...But the Joke's On Mankind
2.5 Triquetra - Torturing The Machine
2.6 Morphic Resonance - Wonderland
2.7 Ka-Sol - Hysterical Mass
2.8 Hada - Magic Of Nature

So, we made sure that all lovers of different kinds of goa-trance will be happy when they press play! Just go and listen to the samples on the release page to conivince yourself!

Similarly to out 10 years birthday compilation "Ten Spins Around The Sun", it will come in a nice Ecopack packaging!

 

What else? Denshi Danshi - Brain Chemistry is still very fresh. Thanks for your amazing feedback for those true oldschoolers who made a stunning come-back to the Goa scene in the past years!

 

 

In our last post we mentionned a secret project for the first weeks of 2019. I still can't talk to you about that, we're working on it. And no matter what, the long awaited "Psylent Buddhi - Secrets Of The Atom" album will hit the shelves in the first quarter of 2019, followed by Celestial Intelligence's second album "Incendescent" !

Those albums are just incredible, firther proof that Suntrip and all its artists want to give you a blast to celebrate your 15th year!

 

 

Celebration means also partying, and we're working hard on a Suntrip 15ht Birthday Tour. Thanks to incredible promoters who believe in us, we are planning 15 dates at least! So you can expect to see Suntrippers somewhere near you in the coming months!

 

 

Oh and last but not least, we hope you saw that we already annoucned the Apsara Festival 2020 :) Brace yourselves, because we're baking a crazy line up! Don't hesiatet to RSVP on Facebook.

Denshi Danshi are back !!

Oh yes, Denshi Danshi are back! After the retrospective “Fluid Dynamics” album which contained 90’s tracks and a couple of new productions, the electric boys are proud to present “Brain Chemistry”: an album completely made in the past two years and packed with 80 minutes of pure energetic dancefloor material!

From underground parties in Israel to big festivals in Spain, and in our dear Apsara festival too, the French duo made a point of honour to blast the dancefloor. All those tracks were carefully battle-tested and refined in their studios to get the best experience possible!

Enough said, now is the time to warm up your sound system, buckle up, play the samples and get your copy!

https://suntriprecords.com/product/item/SUNCD52/
https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/brain-chemistry

Enjoy the music!

 

Huh, what ? What we're up to ? Yes sure, let's talk about that:

We're now working hard on our SUNCD50 compilation. We can disclose its name now: "The 50th Parallel". Although we always wanted to celebrate our 50th CD release, we came up with that title very recently as we realized we signed the creation of Suntrip very near that imaginary line :) Here's a WIP of the somewhat organic artwork:

Initially we wanted to have a 3xCD compil with some oldschool names on the third one. We already had some great tunes...but...we though they deserved a specific release (to come in 2019). So what we're going to release early December 2018, right in time for Xmas presents (!) is a 2xCD compilation with a pure Goa side and a Forest side! Artists range from long-time Suntrip partners like KhetzaL (yes!), Crossing Mind, Triquetra, Morphic Resonance, Battle of The future Buddhas, Ka-Sol, Sykespico, Cosmic Dimension on the one hand; and amazing dudes we've been longing to work with on the other hand: Proxeeus, Clementz, Median Project, Hada, Everything Turns, Cosmic Serpent.

We're at mastering stage and the artwork is nearly ready, so brace yourselves :)

 

We're also secretely working on a little surprise. Can't tell more for the moment...just know it's o.l.d.s.c.h.o.o.l !

 

Speaking about oldschool, we will be ready to release the mythic Psylent Buddhi album called "Secrets Of The Atom" in early 2019. Everyone, including the artist thought the tracks had been lost forever a long time ago. But someone had them and Psylent is happy to let us release them. It's a CRAZY album we're looking at, showing a mighty - almost supernatural - mastering of acid lines and massive climaxes. Just listen to Sunborn's Mix @ Apsara Festival, he played two of those tracks there :)

 

Oh while we're at it, maybe you saw that we're going to do it again: we announced Apsara Festival 2020 last week! As you guessed already it's going to be a on biennial basis. In the meantime you can let your kneecaps to rest...or...come with us to ZNA 2019 :)

 

Back on the release front, apart from the aforementioned oldschool compilation, Celestial Intelligence are nearing completion to their second album which will be called "Incandescent", and fantastic artists like Mindsphere, Triquetra, Cosmic Dimension, Filteria, Merr0w or even Ethereal are still tweaking their machines to make you vibrate in the coming couple of years.

 

See you soon!

Stapanii Timpului, the new masterpiece by E-Mantra

E-Mantra, the Romanian star of darkish acidic goa, is back with a 4th full album on Suntrip Records After a summer break (with our Apsara Festival) we are proud to present this masterpiece on our shop & bandcamp!

The album starts with "Rusalka", a huge dancefloor stormer with an enormous kick, followed by a darker pure acid 303-stormer: "Ghosts in the Mist". Slowly the album evolves in recognisable E-Mantra territories: darker acidic goa-trance with spooky melodies and massive bass. Tracks like "Ravenmocker", "At The Foothills of Kogaion" & "Typhon's Wrath" will destroy every trancefloor! During the last tracks we hear the first rays of sun again! Blisfull melodies accompanied by another dose of acid-sounds allover! To end this epic story E-Mantra shows his ability for downtempo trance again. 

No doubt, when this album hits the speakers, it will make you dance, smile and go crazy! And if you like it, dont forget the other classics by E-Mantra released on Suntrip Records! As usual the mastering is done by Tim Schuldt, for an extra crispy result!

https://suntriprecords.com/product/item/SUNCD51/

And that's not all, we also offer you new Suntrip T shirts and cds from other labels in our shop!  We are sure your trance needs will be fulfilled soon!
