Doof - Let's Turn On - Remixed & Remastered [DATCD006]


A few years ago, in 2011, it was the very first time Nick Doof allowed anyone to release an old tune of his, and after his kind contribution to the pro-charity compilation "Mind Rewind" (now repressed, due to huge demand for whoever missed it the first time) my friend Mark Ainley thought it was possibly the right time to ask Nick if he had other unreleased tracks, including a track he remembered from the heydays, Destination Bom (Live Mix). Shortly after Nick answered and sent the most incredible track ever.


I had already a few unreleased tunes from Doof and I had the idea of asking if maybe there were more alternate-live mixes to "Let's Turn On" album tracks, that till today is one of the most easily recognizable classic Goa Trance album of all times. Nick searched and incredibly enough he found alternate mixes, desk and live mixes for every track of the album!


It was crystal clear to me that the only logical thing to do would be to reissue the album, including all the alternate mixes... thus DAT Records is pleased to announce:


Doof - Lets Turn On - Remixed and Remastered

This is just a tease, but I hope it will keep you dreaming a little bit more until the release is actually out... Enjoy!!

VA - Analog Dreams [DATCD005]


Analog Dreams


Here at DAT Records, Mark and I are extremely energized and excited to announce to everyone what we have been cooking up in the last 6 months at least. Before that, we had only bits and pieces of ideas but then it became a clear vision and we chased it to the point where we could grasp it and transform it into reality. We wanted to make a compilation - not just any compilation but something epic that would take you on a journey up there somewhere. So we started collecting tracks and then we realized how amazing it would be if we could have only remixes of real classics on it because... well, they exist! So from a generic VA (there are more of those in the pipeline), we transformed our first compilation into the perfect journey through parallel realities, with well-known masterpieces presented in ways that you have never heard before.


With no further mumbo jumbo or wordplay, I am pleased to announce officially our compilation "Analog Dreams":


1 Hallucinogen - LSD '93
2 Space Tribe - The Great Spirit (Original Mix)
3 Doof - We Are Free (Desk Mix)
4 Slinky Wizard - Funkus Munkus (Original Mix)
5 Green Nuns Of The Revolution - Ring Of Fire (Extended Mix)
6 Total Eclipse - Free Lemonade (Live in Paris 1995)
7 Etnica - Full On (Original Mix)
8 Prana - Voyager 2
9 Nervasystem - Whirling Dervish (Kaleidoscope Mix)


Mastered by: Jaroslav Valo @ Analog Dimension
Audio Restoration by: Kyriakos Sunborn on tracks 4, 6 & 7
Artwork by: Shiva Om
Artwork Concept, Idea & Revision by: Federico Draeke


Official Release Date: 1st August 2014


We start with a twist on the most classic track ever: the first version of the iconic Hallucinogen work that would become the legendary LSD, the original track that was played in Goa in 1993 and which would lead to the trademark sound of Simon's later releases. Then we move to the amazing original mix of Space Tribe's The Great Spirit, an epic and spiritual track that is as powerful as it is beautiful. Things start to move deeper with the brooding and driving desk mix of the brilliant Doof track We Are Free.

Now that our gears are oiled and running, we can unleash the powerful energy of Slinky Wizard with the original first mix of Funkus Munkus that will get you grooving. We finally reach the apex with an extended mix of Green Nuns of the Revolution's monster tune Ring Of Fire. Prepare to hurtle through the cosmos, Space Cadets, because you *cannot* imagine how energizing and mind-blowing this track is - we were speechless when we heard it and are still on Cloud 9.

Then, even if you think it's not possible, we go even higher with this super-duper-hyperbolic live mix of Total Eclipse's Free Lemonade from a 1995 Paris performance. Please remember to be more careful from whom you accept free lemonade - there is no need for lemonade, as this track is enough for a magical trip ! And then we stabilize in hyperspace with the magnificent long, haunting original mix of Etnica's Full On, which appears for the first time ever fully unmixed on CD.

Now as we prepare to come back to Earth, we present you the groovy, beautifully refreshing, and extremely rare mix of Voyager 2 by Prana. We then close this splendid compilation with the spiritual and mystical downtempo kaleidoscope mix of Nervasystem's Whirling Dervish, a track that we loved the minute we heard it first.

To prepare this compilation was a long and complex process of detective work and discussion. I want to thank Mark Ainley for his help and dedication in this. We have been compiling and assembling something we are sure that you will enjoy for as many years as these tracks were hidden. And this is the first of a series of three compilations... All aboard and blast off!

VA - Mind Rewind [DMRCD01]


Release Information

The psychedelic trance music from the early days of the scene holds a special place in many people’s hearts. The enthusiasm, emotion, and energy in the music was palpable to all who attended parties and listened to the music of the time. A dedicated group of collectors united from the Discogs forum have collaborated to produce a limited edition 2-CD set of rare tracks from the early days that is sure to bring some spine-tingling vibrations to fans of this music.

Mind Rewind features 20 tracks by some of the top artists of the scene, all of them new to CD. Much of the music played at parties in the early days circulated on digital audio tape and would not be released, only being heard at Goa-style events.

DAT Mafia Recordings was created to be able to have this compilation that features top tracks from these formative years of the psychedelic trance scene to be released properly and is a sub-label of DAT Records.

On the compilation there are three vinyl-only releases here, two of them featuring Simon Posford, with the rest having never been released in any format.

Among the gems are three tracks featuring Psychaos’ Joti Sidhu, two of them rare collaborations (one with Ofer, the other with Etnica); a different mix of Doof’s classic Mars Needs Women; a collaboration between Graham Wood of The Infinity Project and Serge Souque of Total Eclipse; and an unissued edit of Kwo-Ne-She by The Green Nuns of the Revolution that member Dick Trevor prefers to the released version. The other brilliant artists featured on the compilation include Etnica, Total Eclipse, Electric Universe, Dimension 5, Deflo, Zerotonine, Blue Planet Corporation, Slinky Nuns, The Muses Rapt, Uni-vers Concept, Infinite Zen, Mushroomman, and Aural Planet.

This limited edition release features tracks generously donated by the artists to raise money for the Goa-based charity Children Walking Tall (now called MangoTreeGoa), and has been pressed in 600 copies the first run and in 400 copies the repress, for a total of 1000. With stunning graphic design and a 12-page booklet featuring detailed notes about the music and the sessions behind them provided by the artists themselves, this set is sure to be a treasured release for the trance-spotting collector.
