  Here is a new unreleased demo track available on my Soundcloud

Once again it is a very old project, coming from a time when I had only one hardware synthesizer, the first versions of the track were recorded on audio tapes ! I entirely reworked and remixed the track according to my current tastes and skills, well maybe too much plugins used compared to hardware synths, but is there so much difference ?

So let me introduce you 'Mahabalipuram' (coming from a 1998 demo !).
Happy listening !

Well apparently, a "six-live-tracks-remixes-EP" was not really enough... So, I'm working on more tracks, some new ones and some old remixes. Like this one, for example, don't know yet if it will be part of it, but who knows ?

By waiting, please enjoy my 2022 version of 'Indian Attic' !!! Higher BPM, more energy, and a definitely better mix (according to my 2022 tastes, of course !). Happy listening and as usual, many thanks to my listeners !!!

First, thank you all very much for all the nice reactions about my 2nd album 'Etamines' and the 'Corolle' 2xLP release. As you may have noticed, one of the tracks of the original edition of 'Corolle' is NOT on the new release, obviously due to the length of my tracks, it was not possible to put more than 2 tracks per LP face. So, I and Suntrip Recs had to make a decision about it...

Lately, I have started working on a new project, though nothing *really* new, but I'm thinking about releasing an EP of some of the best tracks I have been playing live. From time to time, some people asked me why I never recorded the live tracks, so they can keep and hear them as memories of "these special moments"...

Well, enough said, let me introduce you a preview of what it could sound like, and YES, it's the "forgotten" track of the 'Corolle' re-release : 'Nyiragongo' !!! Definitely an entire remix of the original track, much better in my opinion, but it's a matter of taste... I used to play that track near the middle of the live-act (just after 'Pavane') and as far as I remember, it has always been the starting point of total madness on the dancefloors :-D

  After a very long wait, many people asked about it during these 15 years, "if" or "when" I would release a 2nd opus. So... Here we are, my second album 'Etamines' is finally available !

From Suntrip Records :
"He continued his deep spiritual goa-trance style filled with magical violin melodies and eastern chords ! This unique storytelling resulted in another fairytale album going from ambient to full power dancefloor madness. We may not be able to travel now, because of Covid, but close your eyes while listening to this wonderful album, and we promise you will fly away to far away lands !"

Well, what can I say, that's the spirit :-) You will find the release on the Suntrip Bancamp. And more than all, thank you very very much for support !!! Happy listening and have a good trip !

Here is a new teaser of my 2nd album 'Etamines' (to be released by Suntrip Records on march 2021).

It's a live video (at home !) of the 4th track called 'Gather Your Herds', using only hardware, but not the usual hardware I use when I play goa-trance live-acts. This live setup configuration, exactly as it can be seen on the video, is in theory designed for a different electro project, based on modular synthesis and hardware synths.

Not "exactly" the same sound as the album version, but close enough to give a good preview of the track. Happy listening and have a good trip !

Recorded at KhetzaL studio, Lyon (FR), by Matt Shady Cat (AKA KhetzaL)
All music, recording and video editing by KhetzaL

  Happy Birthday Suntrip ! After 15 years we are happy to release Suntrip-CD 50 ! And this is not your average CD... It's a 2-CDs compilation with only the best modern goa-trance in all its facets !
We decided to dedicate the first CD to the fantastic world of sunshine and melodies ! You like your goa-trance powerful, melodic, emotional and floating ? Then our first CD will be your taste for sure ! Modern goa-trance legends such as KhetzaL, Crossing Mind and Cosmic Dimension are combined with the new talents Triquetra, Sykespico, Hada, Clementz and Median Project !

The second CD is something else : the moon started to shine and the atmosphere changed to something more ominous ! Still powerful and somehow melodic, but with a darkish, more evil touch. Our definition of nightish music ! Of course you will find our usual suspects here with Ka-Sol, Battle Of The Future Buddhas or Morphic Resonance. But here also we found some amazing new talents such as Cosmic Serpent, Everything Turns, Proxeeus and Hada !

So, we made sure that all lovers of different kinds of goa-trance will be happy when they press play ! Even with the modern music industry crisis we hope we can continue for 50 more CDs ! A small story about the title : it refers to the place where Suntrip was founded in 2004 ! So buy if you like, spread the word and more important : carry goa-trance in your heart forever !
