Global Goa Party 4: 1995 – Party Time!
Are you ready? Got the blacklights all ready to go with brand new bulbs, your fluoro banners are ironed and hung, and your living room furniture is pushed to the walls so you and your friends can tear up the rug getting down to 15 hours of old-school Goa trance? Good. So are we.
This is an online-only, “virtual” party featuring sets by 10 DJs from around the world providing 15 hours of 1995-and-before psychedelic dance music. The whole party will be streamed “live” on DI.fm’s Goa-Psy channel where each mix is played back-to-back. Sometime after the party, the Goat Ranch will provide download links and track listings for every mix played during the party.
At the appointed time (see “When” below), point your browser to http://di.fm/goapsy and click the Play button. Streaming is free, but is highly recommended that you spend $7.00 for a month of their Premium service so you get the best audio quality and–most importantly–you are not subjected to advertisements during the show. They tend to be quite the buzz kill – way worse than the generator running out of gas! Seriously, spend the 7 bucks and consider it the cost of a “ticket” to the party. 🙂
Tune in to DI.fm on Saturday 05 April 2014 (that’s today!) at:

Please join us in the #goa room on irc.di.fm for the party chat! We get super geeky with all the trainspotting and music talk, and as the night progresses things can also get kinda weird. Just the way we like it. 🙂 If you are familiar with IRC, just use your favorite client and join:
- server: irc.di.fm
- room: #goa
If you haven’t used IRC before, it’s quite easy, especially if you use one of the following links to join the room:
NOTE: Sometimes when using the web-based clients you’ll get an error about exceeding connection limits. If you get this, try one of the other links, or better yet, install a “real” IRC client on your favorite device. There are a bunch of free clients out there (I use mIRC on Windoze and AndroIRC on the phone) so you should be able to join no problem. It’s recommended that you get your client setup now before the party starts – the room is always up and running and isn’t just for the party, so you can test at any time.
Party On, Party Droid!
That’s all there is to it – tune in, drop out, and get down. Looking forward to seeing you in the chat room!
