Remember Goa trance? A genre of music that started life as techno, decided it wasn't spacy or fast enough, existed on DAT because vinyl melted and slowly spun itself out of existence about the time Paul Oakenfold did the soundtrack to Swordfish?

I remember Goa trance. I miss Goa trance. I think it's mutherfucking criminal that Skrillex was in Wreck-it Ralph, Daft Punk were in Tr2n and the speed metal of techno crawled into its own navel and died, unmourned and unloved. For a few brief, beautiful years ragas existed at 150bpm and came out of TB303s.

(It's possible I'm day-drinking in response to having to update a 15-year-old Microsoft Live Server-based application over RS232)
