Eallra Hālgena ǣfen (or, a spooky Halloween mix)

Moving through a few years and styles, yet remaining predominantly within the realm of older Goa trance (especially the first half) this one presents some of the darker tracks of the genre together in one package. This is before the advent of today’s “dark psy”, or “trauma trance”, as it’s sometimes called. It’s a dark and tweaky mix, sometimes gooey (Nucleus) and sometimes techy (Venom vs. Bus), and might be something you’d hear at 2AM out in the forest back in the day.
Enjoy, everyone, and be safe out there – weird and scary stuff happens on Halloween!
