1998 marks the last year of the golden age of Goa trance and the beginning of a period of great uncertainty. Many producers, tired of the classic sound, began to experiment with new approaches. Some of these, like the short-lived psybreaks phase championed by Metal Spark and 21:3’s Elastic, never amounted to much of anything. Others, however, had a huge impact on the development of the movement. Chief among them was X-Dream’s monumental album Radio, which pioneered a new minimal aesthetic that soon spread across the world. Likewise, Simon Posford’s psychedelic downtempo project Shpongle scored a massive (and often imitated) hit with Are You Shpongled? The first hints of both the full-on and progressive movements can also be traced back to 1998 (see The Growly Family and the first glimmerings of the Scandosound on Flying Rhino’s Slipstream compilation for examples).
