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!

Welcome to this crazy acidic world, Psylent Buddhi !!!

Dear Suntrippers! 
We are proud to present one of the véry best albums of the 90s and early 00s, finally released on cd! 

Pure acid-goa-trance in the green nuns style, with extra spiralling melodies on top, that is Psylent Buddhi

We are chasing the artist since 2004 but he lost all his files back then... Thanks to some DAT-collectors, we managed to find the full quality files and the artist again, 15 years later! :) The result? An instant classic! Hear, experience and buy if you like!!! :)

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!

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!

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!

Darker, stronger, here is Morphic Resonance's new album: Perplexity!

There it is!

After two years of hard work , Christian aka Morphic Resonance follows up on his debut album "The City Of Moons" with a darker, more industrial, and yet ultra psychedelic second album called "Perplexity".

 In this sequel you will hear more of his magic! Smashing kicks and basslines, acidic melodies, industrial distortion and a high amount of psychedelic effects will bring you into another dimension!

The beautiful artwork was made by Rodolpho Morais from Brasil and mastering is by Tim Schuldt, another master of industrial influenced psychedelic trance!

Oh, and it has very good reviews on Psynews too :)

Seriously? Go get it !
Suntrip Records shop



Regarding the new E-Mantra album we talked about last time, we're progressing: mastering is in progress and we have a mockup to show :)

Extracts are coming very soon !!



And last but not least, let's talk about the Apsara Festival

We are delighted to see all the support we get, and people coming from a hundred countries!!
We have annouced almost every uptempo artist now, and I'm not sure we can pack more awesome artists in just 5 days !

We'll get to the downtempo artists in the coming weeks :)

We did our best to pack our website with all sorts of useful information.

Now I think it's time I invite you to get your ticket on :)
There's also some information page over our phases and their pricings.

As we're deep into the production / schedule / logistics phase, I'm taking the opportunity to call for volunteers ready to help us DURING the event. We know you wanna dance, and won't be asking you to work too much, and there's an incentive too, so why not apply ?

We were silent but we weren't idle...

Hello Suntrippers !!

His first album, "The City of Moons" was voted as the best album of the year 2016 on Psynews, and his Pleiadians Remix mini album on DAT Records gained a lot of attention as well. In this sequel coming exactly two years later, you will hear more of his magic! Smashing kicks and basslines, acidic melodies, industrial distortion and a high amount of psychedelic effects will bring you into another dimension!

The beautiful artwork was made by Rodolpho Morais from Brasil and mastering is by Tim Schuldt, another master of industrial influenced psychedelic trance!

All you have to do now is head straight to the release page and enjoy the 3:30 minute long samples !!!


Now you're thinking...since "Perplexity" will be SUNCD49, Suntrip has to be ready to release their celebration SUNCD FIFTY compilation they've been talking about for two years ! Right ?

Well, no. We have a title, we already gathered plenty of awesome tracks, but we want it to be unforgettable so we're going to give it a few extra months.


In the meantime we're working on the new E-Mantra album. What was still codename SUNCD51 a few days ago has now a title: "Stapanii Timpului" ("The Masters of Time" in Romanian). Mastering is about to be done and artwork is in progress. More about it (and extracts) will be disclosed soon :)

Get to know Ray Castle works with our new release: "Mystique Of The Metaverse"

One of the most distinguished trail-blazing legends of the nineties Goa movement, Ray Castle, has salvaged his DATs from a rhyzome time capsule stash containing artefacts from a truly revolutionary epoch.

And today we are releasing a retrospective over his most striking works with "Mystique Of The Metaverse".

Mystique Of The Metaverse is a pedigree selection of tracks resulting from mind-melding sessions at the apogee of Goa trance’s ascension as a multivalant style of dance music nuanced in metaphysics and cosmos and psyche. And they have been remastered by Tim Schuldt from the original DAT tapes!

DJ-ing in Goa, India, from the late eighties, Ray was able to translate the ultra word “Goa-state-of-mind” into this numinous music, seminal to psychedelic-intentioned dance music for wilderness settings. 

With "Mystique Of The Metaverse" we hope you to get a glipse of what it used to be when the whole Goa movement started, in this period of crazy exhilarating boundless creativity !

Head to the release page or our bandcamp page and enjoy the music !!

Triquetrappy new year !

Hello Everyone,

The Suntrip Team wishes you a fantastic new year 2018 !

So much has happened in2017...OK let's do a small recap first: We started the year like we promised...

Mindsphere - Mental Triplex : Mindream (SUNCDLE06)
VA - Inti (SUNCD45)
K.O.B. - Identity Mash (SUNCD46)

...and finally...

Astral Projection - Let There Be Light EP (SUNCDEP02)



We hope you appreciated the ambient side of Mindsphere, and got a full taste of our new recruits, and new directions from known projects, with Triquetra, Sykespico, Ovnimoon, Morphic Resonance and Celestial Intelligence all featured in "Inti".

In turn, we're a little sad K.O.B. divised the audience more than Filteria. It's underrated in out opinion, as it contains fantastic darker Goa material. Re-listen to it, you'll see...

Naturally Astral Projection kept up to their promises and together with our dear remixers Filteria and Morphic Rsonance, delivered a highly acclaimed piece of joy and enlightenment ! Thanks for all the kind words we received, especially during the Conection Festival when it was just released.


After that, nothing... we'd promised a Ray Castle retrospective (Rhythmystec, Insectoid, Masaray...), the Triquetra album, a Connection compilation, the mysterious SUNCD50 compilation. What happened?

Well, first scheduling releases is not an exact science : Triquetra needed a few extra weeks. As for Ray, dubbing a 20+ year old DAT then shipping it from Australia to Europe, before extracting it can sure take some time. The Connection compilation just didn't happen: compiling takes time, organizing a festival too, and it gets complicated when both are at the same time...

...and that's exactly what we're doing right now as we announced the Apsara Festival to be held from August 8th to 12th in Ludos, Romania, on the ex-Transylvaliens land!

We're disclosing the lineup at a rate of 2 artists per week. You can expect a LOT of surprises in the next weeks :)

Oh by the way, presales are open and we're still in Phase 1 and we're applying a "Social" pricing for residents of countries facing complicated economic conditions. We have ambassadors too. Romania is a beautiful country, so why not come and tour once you've danced like there's no tomorrow ?

The most we'd organized before was a week-end event, that's another beast now and obviously a mountain of work when you have to learn and build everything from scratch. Fortunately some of the ex-Transylvaliens guys are helping us a great deal with...everything. Overall we'll do exactly what we've done since 2004: work hard and harder till your ears are filled with blissful music, till your muscles are propelled by energy waves, till happyness blows your mind !

Just a little background information here: the Apsara team is 5 people: Fabien, Jos "Anoebis", and Chris "Ouwe Gouwe" from Suntrip Records; Remus "Hase" and Theo "Mawski" from ex-Transylvaliens; without forgetting Rodolfo Morais, our graphic designer.. Jos and Chris have switched to a 80% work time, their remaining 20% being spent respectively on Communication/Promotion; and the company's legal things + budget/accountancy; while Fabien has decided to spend 100% of his time on Apsara's technical things, presales+ambassadors, plane tickets, flyers, on-site procedures, Suntrip's next releases of course, and a couple of unrelated projects. Remus and Theo, as native Romanians, are dealing with most of the logistics/crew. Everyone took part to the lineup selection! Since we live in 3 different countries, we're thoroughly using so-called "new technologies" to meet up and share documents. All this would have been impossible only 10 years ago.

Naturally we've created a company to make things legal, we have a realistic budget, we've met the mayor in Ludos who's happy to see a festival on his land again, our uptempo stage lineup is 95% confirmed, downtempo stage lineup 50% complete, deco confirmed (it's awesome), security too, toilets/showers agreement in progress, crews definition and procedures/shifts in progress, we're starting to select shops and volunteers, and the presales are ongoing. So you see we're damn serious and commited. Chris and Fabien are even set on learning Romanian!

We were pleased to receive support from a couple of other festival promoters. Hats off guys, thanks for believing in Goa music and in us!

Oh yes, another 2017 news you may have missed: I wrote above Chris Ouwe Gouwe is now part of Suntrip Records. We're three guys in the core team now (but we'd be nothign without the many great heplers we have). This was high time: he's one of the Old Is Gold / Trance Dimensions / Fractal Gate parties organizers, and long time Suntrip accountant and advisor, ultra square guy and hardcore Goa addict :) He will keep taking care -officially now- of 604 Bookings on top of what he used to do for us.

Suntrip is growing indeed. Not because we want it, because you want it: more music, more parties, more happiness and love mean more work, more responsibilites. It's a little scary as we're at a point where what used to be a night-time occupation is taking up a significant part of our lives (it's 3am as I'm writing this). Probably means we love it. Ah if only Suntrip could pay our rents...


Back to the releases now:

"Ecstatic Planet" is the debut album of one of the most talented goa-trance producers these days: Triquetra! These Belgian twins, Elric & Jurian, are blowing away the scene and played allover the world already, Israel and Japan included! Why? Because their music simply kicks ass! Acidic, uplifting but melodic for all lovers of old school goa-trance! We even heard people making a link with old Cosmosis... Can you handle that? :)

The journey starts with a melodic track, which is supposed to be the Gate to Happiness! Good, because indeed, happiness is imminent: The following tracks are pure blissfull acidic old school goa-trance! A good portion of TB303 & acid sounds, uplifting melodies, old school kicks and an interesting rhythm section! With "Gargantuan Tribes" they take a break from the madness, and show their other side: tribal trance with live didgeridoo and drums! The second part of the album evolves to more typical melodic goa-trance for the morning hours! Many dancefloors already exploded with this music, we hope you will too!

Release date is Janury 22nd, and if you can't hold your breath until then, you better get your hands on the samples on the release page !


Aaah this one is a jewel...One of the most distinguished trail-blazing legends of the nineties Goa movement, Ray Castle, has salvaged his DATs from a rhyzome time capsule stash containing artefacts from a truly revolutionary epoch. 

"Mystique Of The Metaverse" is a pedigree selection of tracks resulting from mind-melding sessions at the apogee of Goa trance’s ascension as a multi valiant style of dance music nuanced in metaphysics and cosmos and psyche. And they have been remastered by Tim Schuldt from the original DAT tapes!

DJ-ing in Goa, India, from the late eighties, Ray was able to translate the ultra word “Goa-state-of-mind” into this numinous music, seminal to psychedelic-intentioned dance music for wilderness settings. 

Game changer, Rhthmystec, is testimony to his long-term relationship with Nick Taylor and what was happening in Byron Bay in the mid-nineties.

An artistic catalyser in Japan from the late eighties, he made parties and collaboratively conjured tracks. Time Traveller Of Trance was channeled with Masayuki Kurihara above his family restaurant, to become a Goa masterpiece, now reanimated with JoyfullNative’s stellar remix. 

In the Roland robot kingdom, under the spell the far East, he had visions of a “neuro tribe” with Susumu Yokota and Take Tokuda, out of which came the Sonic Sufi sessions. 

Deep in the Australian bush, together with Nick Spacetree and Mark Turner, he engaged in rituals and field recordings in the company of disembodied spirits and extra-terrestrials. These paranormal, and out of the body, experiences are Insectoid.

In the great Suntrip mixup tradition, this SUNCD47 will be released on February 14th, after Triquetra's SUNCD48, and guess what ? I just made the samples available on the release page.


Still here ?
Morphic Resonance's second album, codename SUNCD49 is next. It's almost ready and it will kick your ass in your bedroom as surely as it did at Connection. Expect the massage in April.

Then we have no other choice but to release our "mythic" SUNCD50 compilation during spring before Apsara :)
The concept:

  • CD1: Sunshine Goa
  • CD2: Darker Goa
  • CD3: <surprise-surprise>

We're already selecting tracks but don't hesitate to submit some more promos!

We seriously have no idea of what we'll release in the second semester, we just know several other artists are still working on their new albums: Celestial Intelligence (2nd album), Cosmic Dimension (2nd album), Merr0w (2nd album "Odysseus"), Mindsphere (the 3rd "Mental Triplex")... We sure hope the prospect of seeing you dance at Apsara will give them extra motivation !!!!

Have a sweet sweet year 2018 and see you on the dancefloor!
