Rambal Cochet has quickly become a favorite of mine, nice to see him active on the site as well. This release continues to dive in the the more trancey sounds, which it seems alot of producers are avoiding for... reasons? This EP reminds me a lot of 1993-1995, when goa and trance were evolving. Previews are here as well for the tracks.

Talpa Lionis:

Mixed Reality



A familiar face in space·lab’s catalogue, Rambal Cochet’s deep-diving new EP, Mixed Reality, marks the occasion of the label’s eighth release with four tracks traversing the darker edges of psy-prog. Opening track, ‘Talpa Lionis’, mines the spiralling depths of a psychedelic abyss, driven by a dark, tunnelling bassline reminiscent of mid-90s psy trance.

Titular track, ‘Mixed Reality’, is tonally brighter. Brimming with buoyant, prog energy, its liquefied melody submerges the track’s percussion in a glowing, ambrosial fluid. On the B side,

‘Sequence 2000’ grows from the ground up. A rippling, cosmic-hued melody traces ever wider reaches, circling the track’s drums as they rise from deep below ground-level. Skittering high-ends flutter organically through the track’s length, lulling us into a state of all-enveloping hypnosis.

To close, ‘Aura 900’ unfolds onto expansive, new-age atmospheres. Delicately sinking into a delectable, chugging pace, its patient speed creates a sense of spaciousness, leaving room for the track’s melody to breathe.

Mixed Reality journeys through vast terrains - an EP for introspective listening and mind-opening dancefloor experiences alike.

Proper Goa Trance here, no more no less.. whole release sounding really good, but the A side would be my picks. Talpa Lionis in particular reminds me of Koxbox

I expect Tampa to rate highly in my end of year list. Goa is a style I miss heavily since Trance changed.

Boring, the track goes nowhere. just a constant buildup without anything exciting happening.

What exactly track you was meaning?

I see, we are just on the different waves of trance. Just saw your post about your fav producers, that explains it.

Really like that sluggish chill track at the end, Aura 900. Always makes me happy when the producers in these scenes wack a downtempo, ambient or atmos type track in their packages.
