Welcome to the Psy Compo!
There is not much to say about this except for the rules i think..or wait.. let us ask wikipedia on that matter:

"Psychedelic trancepsytrance or just psy (derived from the Ancient Greek word ψυχή "psyche", mind; soul; breath; spirit[2]) is a form of electronic music characterized by hypnotic arrangements of synthetic rhythms and complex layered melodies created by high tempo riffs.[citation needed] It appeared in the mainstream in 1995[citation needed] as with reporting of the trend of Goa trance. The genre offers variety in terms of mood, tempo, and style. Some examples include full ondarkprogressivesuomipsybreaks and psybient. Goa Trance continues to develop alongside the sub genres."

 

So, here are the rules!

  • write a Psy/Psytrance/Goa tune
  • you might write a remix of a scene tune, which is from a different genre
  • song length must not exceed 10 minutes - we want to add the tracks to the radio
  • you may submit as many entries as you want
  • Deadline is: 17.02.2013 23:59:59 (this is a sunday!)
  • Voting Deadline will be: 24.02.2013 23:59:59
  • upload the track before the deadline here on this site
  • don't publish your track until voting is over
  • upload your tune as mp3
  • make it sound awesome

Excellent stuff here! Great energy, awesome mix, technically flawless. There is something slightly weird-chaotic with the synth line, like a note or two almost falling out-of-place... but the track rocks without a doubt.

This one really tries! Everything is correct except melodies are random (and not goa-like) and hihats tiny bit too loud. Damn.. Wished to give this one 4 but i can't because of the melodies.. sorry about that!

Wow, the groove is strong in this one! Fresh, original! Not sure it falls into psy/psytrance/goa but very enjoyable, makes you ask for more. I would have loved a slightly more "present" bassline, tho.
4
by Serpent
Well ok, i don't know every goa/psy style and this might fit in one, i don't know. In any case, it's mysterious enough, very well done and the bass&drum section does it's job very well and very fitting to given style. Minus 1 star for patakakkonen (no joking in this compo, this is serious one! :D) and for the lenght. Or mainly lack of it.

Some sounds feel authentic, some don't. Also, intonation is poppish at couple points, definitely does not fit (long minus point!) :) And more bitching, rhythm is slightly too fast or odd for goa in some other way IMHO.

The kick is nice but could have a sharper attack. Nice atmosphere, all sorts of interesting things happen. Would have been even better with more glueing between kick/drums vs. the rest

I sense the drums like being not punchy enough (xpecially the snare)... which is a real pity! because the whole rest feels very well done!

Promising, nice to have some vocal speech there. Close but not just there yet, needs more crazy, layered leads. Too much of that choir sample too, at points it makes me think of Hippel though :D

Way too much happening in the drum department, it's like a constant rock fusion fill or something, it destroys the possibility for any sort of "flow", and spoils everything. Not psytrance at all. Replacing all drums with a simple 4/4 kick would make this hugely better.

Fires up properly but then, somehow, it doesn't deliver what promises. The ol'good "egyptian" scale/line is a bit too cheap for my taste and it feels under-produced... but the overall is enjoable, good energy in here.

A good effort to take a bit more minimalistic approach. This kind of stuff can be heard on psy-parties. However, those "effects" (ie. 2:25) do not hit the spot.

The kick sounds distorted and stands out a bit too much, like from some other genre. Halfway through the songs, pig snort/fart/burp synth gets too rediculous.

I like the build-up / improv - it makes sense! Reminds me of "electric coolaid" (instruments). Longer theme melody would have given 5.

Nice and interesting sounds. Also getting a sort of demo-ish vibe from it. Better than my attempt :) My 2nd fave of this compo!

The synth leads cut through too much compared to the rest. I recommend ducking with sidechain compression. Otherwise, there are many things to like here.

I sense a hint of greatness in here but the result fails to deliver. Synthline feels way too dry to achieve that "epic fuzzness" level. Drums could use way more punch too. Bassline works fine here but the whole feels a bit empty.

Hmm. Seems like a radio station overlapping another. I was expecting something good when I heard some Arps, but WTF?! Some interesting experimental ideas but I don't think it works. Too noisy unfortunately as there's no cohesive tune to follow. All I can say as a n00b myself, is, keep trying!

sentence. This song ripped off many artists, some even rather blatantly so. More of a macro-sample mix of other songs rather than a unique original song. Not a low vote because of the suspected artist, but said artist sounds like he also violated the rules by releasing the song elsewhere before the compo finished: https://soundcloud.com/ankhangel/techno-godz-morph-mash-up-re
