LOUD – 5 Billion Stars – New Album released
LOUD are one of the more interesting, talented, innovative and uncompromising psytrance acts. Since their first album, that took everyone by storm, they keep changing and looking for new musical directions. We’ve been all taken captive by their great videos for their sets at Boom Festival 2014 and Ozora Festival 2015. And a big part was due to the tracks that we were promised will come out on the next album: 5 Billion Stars, Green Star Movement, Goblins Talking, Om and more.
And the album – ” 5 Billion Stars” – is finally here, released yesterday at Nano Records. There are two versions – the real album version, all mixed and programmed into one long cohesive journey, and single extended DJ versions to the tracks in the album.
Listen to LOUD – 5 Billion Stars
And the album definitely delivers. Like always, LOUD are taking things deeper and to the next level. The more we listen to “5 Billion Stars”, the more we find inside. The true spirit of trance, so much feel, breaking formulas, surprising, hypnotic, interesting, with a concept. LOUD are returning to the source, to the roots of trance around the world, with visits to Morocco, India, Australia, America and more. And who better to open the journey than Raja Ram of TIP and Shpongle fame, explaining why was music created?
Other guests are psychedelic chill master Shulman, and Emok and Vice from Iboga Records.
We waited long time for an album like this. we always found it curious that a musical genre that considers itself Psychedelic has so few real journey album experiences with a concept to offer.
Here you can listen to the extended DJ versions in one long playlist:
Check the video clip Trancentral made to Green Star Movement, that is turning into a real dancefloor shaker with tribal Moroccan vibes and rhythms:
