Gangguru - Be Your Own Guru [DATCD012]

 

The triple album of Gangguru is something completely unexpected, a treasure from the past teleported right to the present. This music was preserved on DAT tapes by the band, and a couple of years ago the DAT Records team digitised it and with the help of the producers identified and sorted a multitude of storming Goa Trance tracks. These have been remastered and tested on dance-floors during this period and it's now time to unleash them to the future for everyone to have and enjoy. These tracks are potent DJ tools and were played all over back in the 90s, at least one DJ remembering the band's early productions being played in Goa in 1996.

 

DAT Records is proud to present a spectacular selection of the best of the best from over a hundred tracks that the band produced in the 90s, and we are sure that many will remember these tracks from their partying times and others will delight in hearing these creations for the first time.

 

The tracks have been wonderfully remastered and are ready to be played out loud at events for years to come, so have fun and enjoy the trippy and magical music of Gangguru!

 

Be sure to get your original copy so you can read the incredible story of the band and the behind-the-scenes tales that emerged during an extensive interview.

The Juggeling Alchemists Under The Black Light is Etnica's first album, a seminal release in the history of Goa Trance music. It was first released in 1995 and has been sold out for a very long time now, so DAT Records searched the archives of the band and found some incredible tracks from the era which had never been released, including some very early demos and test tracks that the band has kept for all this time, since its inception and their first productions of 1993.

This spectacular triple digipak will satisfy every fan of the band, and the music contained is really floating, magical, and very special. It also includes many trance and proto goa tracks that will be loved by everyone who danced in the 90s but will also be very appealing to the new generation, since every track has now been mastered for this epic release.

We do hope you will support the hard work behind this release that took over 2 years to prepare for release. It is with great pleasure that we want you to once again dance and trance to the magical music of Etnica.

 

Prepare for a tribal trip, you'll be teleported to a jungle of sounds and feel the mystical vibes of this marvellous album wrap all around you!

The track that was released on CD2 as "Etnica - Party Druid (Sonic Shaman)" was a misnamed DAT track and it is actually "Evolution - Alien Phenomenon". The authors have been notified and an agreement has been found to apologise for this honest mistake. Neither the band nor the label recognised this track or thought it was from another artist and thus this happened. We think it is a very oldschool goa trance situation where often tracks were misnamed on DAT tapes for various reasons, however we are really satisfied by this gargantuam release and have heard wonderful feedbacks.

 
You'll Never Know - You'll Never Know EP [DATGOA001]

You'll Never Know - You'll Never Know EP

This Release is very special.

 

It is the story of the track that was the biggest hit in Goa during the season 1991/92.
How it ended up there, it's a fabulous tale.


Read it here...

 

The year is 1991 and the season in Goa is going to be a blast.  All the DJs are exchanging tracks for the upcoming parties, but there is a track, THE track, that everyone wants to have and to play.

A hypnotic piece that is “You Never Know”.

Read the story from the Artist:

“There was a time when we suddenly appeared at the Goa scene with You Never Know, which was one of the first tracks we made after forming the band.

The track ended up in Goa, without any appearance from either me or my partner because at that time I knew a French guy in Denmark, Besugh, who was totally into the Goa scene at that time, constantly walking around with his DAT recorder, collecting tracks from all over as well as DJing around the Aarhus scene. Every year he went to Goa for the winter playing at venues; he had his second home down there.

I played the track for him once and he asked for a copy.

When I saw him the next time, after he had been in Goa for the winter, he was completely crazy, screaming that "You Never Know" that year was the biggest hit in Goa. I know that Frank from Koxbox mentioned it to me as well. Besugh was the "main man" that year at the beaches, since he was the one who had the only copy of the track.

Since you have been so determined for such a long time, to look up about who was behind it, me and my partner will allow you and DAT records to license the track.  We are both happy that our track had, and obviously still has, an impact. It personally reminds me about the time when I was young and eager to contribute to the electronic music scene. This all happened a few years before we became famous musicians.

Thanks again for bringing this memory up.”

 

The track is mystical and there are people who have been looking for this tune for so many years on every techno and trance record they could find from, yet it eluded everyone because it has never been released before.

We are so proud to be able to offer this fantastic track that was lost on an almost unreadable CD-r, the sole surviving copy, together with three other bombs from the same demo, bringing back that original vibe, from the sunny beaches of Goa teleported directly to modern times, to preserve this music for eternity.

We are so grateful to have been given the rights to release this - it is a rare chance and we thank the producers profoundly and to help give this epic track the deserved glory and place in history that it deserves.

Play it loud and enjoy it!
