Listening to Eudaimonia more and more... Might be one of my favourites of the year. Perfect track, absolutely in love with the emotion.

I may be a bit out of the loop, but will the album also be loaded to youtube?
And is bandcamp the only place where it can be purchased from?

Eudaimonia 47 Tucanea Himelfjoer Wetterljocht OAHU

Stands out for me. Better than anything Armin has released in the past 15 years.

Love the cover art as well.

Yes I will keep on Bandcamp first to see if I can encourage more purchases. Eventually will move to Youtube and Spotify as well.

I have listened this through twice now. Some of it good, some of it is bit miss for me. Trio of Himelfjoer - OAHU - Wetterljocht is the highlight of the album for me. I will make an (eventual) purchase.

Thanks for the praise and feedback everyone 🙏 What i'm reading between and in the lines is that the more experimental techy and ambient stuff, which aren't as rule bound as the regular trance format seem to be most favorable.

might be interresting to continue on that path for the near future, (though you'll probably won't see an album any time soon as its ridiciously time consuming/intensive)


Paracosm part 2, titled Synesthesia,
heh. i'd have to ask someone like bobby to come aboard with that seen as I don't have Synaesthesia. I wouldn't know what it would mean to make a track let alone an album based on that feeling/sight.
Hope you like it guys. My fav track so far

Through fields of open shards
Random fun fact: the strings/melody of Through Fields Of Open Shards are actually a (slightly altered) reverse of Through Shards of Open Fields from the Alphanumeric album in 2008

Pretty much agree with this comment. Those three tracks are the highlight for me as well.

Nice job overall, tho!

What an amazing album. The Melodies throughout are stunning, the best I have heard all year. Tucanea 47, OAHU, Shards and Lanaikea are my favorites but I liked everything. I wish it was longer, with one or more trance tracks to make it 10 trance and 2 ambient.

Can I make a comparison to Borderline releases? I think your melodic ideas are so much more original, creative and engaging. But I’ll say the flow and structure on the borderline tracks is maybe more polished and drums in some tracks more professional. I would love to see the best of both those combine, either on TF label or Borderline

@Gagi I quote your idea “What I think could be an improvement point for Paracosm part 2, titled Synesthesia, released exclusively on TF.R :)sneaky::sneaky::sneaky:) “

Ello ello @Gagi … I think someone else came up with that idea young man! 🤯

Id certainly love to make an album called that. Maybe the front cover could be one of my minds synesthesia images.
Certainly be up for trying a collab with a Paracosm experiencer one day.

@jetflag

So just to warn about the physics of this. Having a Paracosm experiencer and having a synesthesia experiencer on one track or so might just blow a worm hole into the atmosphere of the earth. Better watch out. The Aliens are on their way!!!

- I hope my humour is appreciated.
Its a tough world out there and smiling is good for you! 🫶 ( shaking your head is too hopefully lol)

Incidentally @Gagi love your enthusiasm for chords. Good they indeed are sir!

Well done on your involvement with Paracosm. The label is in safe hands.

( i need to learn how to quote a post on a forum - apologies, tis the first forum im a member of, )

Listening to totw - very good. Has a rhythm that makes you move and feeling is very trancey and considered. Will be playing the full album tomorrow but this track is one of the best I heard so far this year. Well done all involved.

Bought after 1st listen. The album was refreshing, every part of the track are enjoyable. My fav are all the 4/4 tracks. Russkoye Leto is the most feel good track on the album, I can see this fav’d by non heavy trance listeners.

Fyi: Bandcamp Friday will start in 2 hours. Any sales will go 93% to the label/artist (the other 7% goes to payment/processing fee iirc)

Supported! I have listened it 1.5-2 times already. It's very good, very clean and crisp sounds, nice mastering, I like the melodies and sounds overall. I enjoy the ambient sounds as well. I will reply again giving more details for what tracks I like most.

Thanks so much to all those legends who already supported this, massively appreciated.

Our goal is to encourage as much support as possible for this one, because I will be using this album as a showcase of TF.R and start messaging a whole bunch of artists, ranging from the underground guys to maybe some more established names. I want to show 1. releases will get love 2. releases will get support, relative to others i.e Borderline, UTE etc. Will be huge help to have album purchased from anyone who enjoys it, especially via a bandcamp account.

As Erick mentioned today is also bandcamp Friday so funds go directly to artist/label. Thanks guys!

Is there much happening in the way of promotion on TF's end (Other than it being on the front page)?
I get it's a work of passion from you guys, so you may not always have the time, but maybe someone on the forum has some connections to get some of the releases onto some DJ's promo lists?

I've been spamming the TFR releases where I can around my socials etc. 😇

First impressions are good, I like every track. High frequency percussions sound a bit plastic in some tracks, but usually only when in isolation. Kick is great however. Feel the same as the post above that the melodic ideas really stand out and are way above average. Album of the year so far I feel. I will buy.
