Nataraja 1

va-nataraja-1

The debut compilation from POF Music (an acronym derived from “Product of France”) was a respectable effort but it hasn’t aged as well as some other entries on this list. In terms of style these selections consistently emphasize the more upbeat and melodic side of the emerging Goa trance sound, with soft, pulsating rhythms and synths that seem to flutter around. Blue Planet Corporation’s Antidote and Amanite FX’s Secrets of Mana are the best examples of the French trance touch on this compilation, while Prana’s bubbling tribal twister Mugen also merits a mention. Finally, Emmanuel Top ends the compilation with a heady dose of mid-1990s acid techno minimalism at its finest, a fine reward for crate-diggers patient enough to unearth this rarity.
