Sorry, Mind Rewind has SOLD OUT. Thank you so much to everyone for your help in making this effort so successful!

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. This compilation on DAT Mafia Recordings features top tracks from these formative years of the psychedelic trance scene. 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, and is limited to 604 printed copies. 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.

    Fantastic tunes and a charitable cause! What’s not to love? Thanks for all this, Marsh.

    You’re quite welcome, sir! Though, I am but one small cog in a much larger machine; the 30+ other members of the project deserve at least as much thanks as I do. 🙂

    I bought (or at least I thought I did) the compilation on Oct 9, 2011 03:36:47 PDT according to PayPal. Was I too late, or…? I got no emails from you or PayPal since then.

  28. Oct 18 2011

    Hi Matija,

    Can you please send an email with your details — email address, shipping address, etc to

    Someone will look into the matter, thank you.

    Wow, this comp looks amazing, too bad I missed out and it is sold out. I am a huge lover and collector of old school goa/psy, and I would love to add this to my collection. Is there any legitimate way to get this? I imagine that reprinting CDs would be far too expensive, but is there a way to buy this digitally? I would be more than happy to fork over $20 for a link to download this album, as these are all really hard to find tracks and I want to support what you guys are doing to keep this music alive. Let me know what you can do, thanks.

    Looking to buy this digitally. Anybody out there?

  34. Jan 29 2014

    Sorry, this release has not been issued in digital format. There has been some talk of a repress of the CD version, however, I don’t think anything has been set in stone. Best course of action for keeping up to date on any Mind Rewind-related developments is to follow the MR page on Facebook (if you’re into that sort of thing):

  35. Excellent web site. A lot of helpful information here.
    I’m sending it to several pals ans also sharing in delicious.

    And naturally, thanks in your effort!
