Goa trance music

From the days of Goa Gil, South Anjuna Beach and Arambol – we've never lost our love of Goa trance music. It was all about the freedom, exploration, innerspace out outer fun. Our relationship with this genre hasn't changed must since the late 80s. A great bit of Goa still gives us shivery post-orgasmic chills and goose bumps. Winston Churchill famously said "We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." If he'd ever encountered Goa, it might have been something like this "We shall make love on the beaches and in the dunes, laugh on the shore, we shall think good thoughts in the fields and the streets, and play on the hills; we shall never surrender our Goa." That’s what we love about Goa. Even with the darkest Goa, there is a little light.

Timeliner - Goa, Psytrance & Minimal ProducerSince his childhood, Goa and Psytrance producer Christoph Allemann (a.k.a Timeliner) has been fascinated with the world of synthesizers and electronic sounds.

In his early days, he composed his own songs and had fun to playing them to audiences at school.

In 1995 the upcoming techno-scene in Switzerland inspired him to do some live-acts at Goa-parties with what was then some pretty basic equipment: a ROLAND TB 303, MC 202, TR 808 and a Clavia Nordlead. These helped him to discover his musical orientation.
