How much old-school Etnica is too much? What about Pleiadians? Crop Circles? Is there a “too much” when we’re talking about these acts?

While I admit that I’m an Etnica fanboy of the highest order, even I think we might be bordering on Etnica-overload here considering the content of the last two mixes. However, the timing of my finally obtaining the last piece of this mix in CDA quality – and the need for a new mix on the Goat Ranch – presents us with this onslaught of melodic intricacy and lucsciously-layered, gooey Goa goodness that is Etnica, Pleiadians, and Crop Circles.
While not consisting totally of “singles” in the strictest sense, this mix represents what I consider to be some of the highest-of-highpoints in the Italians’ vast discography as Etnica, Pleiadians, and Crop Circles. Only one of the tracks, Headspin, resides on a full-length album (Family of Light) in the form in which it appears here (it was first released on a 12″, however). The rest were released only on 12″ vinyl singles, CD singles, or compilations, and most often some combination thereof.
For those of you unfamiliar with these guys, you are in for a treat! For while oft-imitated, not many artists before or since have been able to attain the level of melodic complexity of these tracks, all the while somehow remaining quite outside the “cheese zone”. Of course, your mileage may vary on this last point. 😉
Enjoy the mix. I know it’s tough, but someone’s gotta do it.
ps. If you are tiring of all this melodic stuff, stay tuned for the next Goat Ranch installment, which I promise will be a departure from the trend that’s been established thus far. I’m working on putting together a set of tracks for the next mix that should quite effectively counteract that which has appeared before. RAWK!
