Hello Ott! Are you more of a coffee or a tea guy? Do you experience negative consequences of being overcaffeinated? I just freaking love coffee myself, but not sure if it significantly affects my mind and perception in negative ways. It's possibly the last addiction I cannot beat and cost/return ratio is so blurry to me that I need an external advice from a man I cannot respect more.
I drink gallons of tea [English style, strong with milk, no sugar] and absolutely detested coffee until 2009, when, on holiday in Italy I decided to try a cappuccino instead.
Mind blown. My first caffeine rush. I'll never forget it.
As soon as we got home I bought an espresso machine and since then I enjoy one cappuccino a day.
The second cup never quite hits the spot, so I stick at one.
Google "Dave Grohl Hospitalised Coffee" to find out what happens if you have the second cup.
Is this what your cheese dreams are like?
The construction of goatrance in the 90s and studio setups fascinates me.
One small bit of info on the net is your quote in The Local Scenes and Global Culture of Psytrance book. Could you expand? Did you have a typical writing / workflow process for trance tunes?
How important was having the sampler do melodic duties?
And could you talk about the importance of the Kurzweil k2000?
Did / do you prefer writing a tune with a synth per track? Any tips for writing a track with less than one synth per track and layering it to write a tune?
Multitracking was somewhat rare for 90s goa no?
