Best Of... RAMMS+EIN!

If you don't know who Rammstein are, go and shoot yourself. Or run far, far away and live in a skip. I can't be arsed to explain it to you.

Here's the best of Rammstein at any rate:

Rebelious: Ich Will -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwDDCUajDlQ

Angry: Benzin (Petrol/Paraffin/Fuel) -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3q9-PnnlM0

Nurture: Mutter (Mother) -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1fL1sABanI

Ntrance -- Set You Free

Another classic club tune.

This is however the last trance music post for a little while, I have another special article on the way, involving a certain posse of Germans... Wait and see, if you haven't guessed already.

Featuring vocals from Kelly Llorenna this reached number two in the UK chart of '95.

Old Is Gold.

The video isn't the best quality, but I haven't got all day to hunt down an HQ version.

Give it a damn good dicing!


A very rare 10

Darude -- The Best Of

It's been a while since the "team-of-one" have made any posts on the blogger side of things, Facebook has been getting some unique to FB posts. It's high time I added some more of the good stuff here.

First of all, two of the most played club tracks ever, remixed countless times and still enjoyable today.

These will certainly need no introduction to anybody who has ever owned ears:

Darude -- Feel The Beat

--> Not too bad quality video, hosted by google so there is plenty of bandwidth on the servers for quick loading/buffering.

--> Give it a whack: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-507963164309110158#

--> 8.5

Darude -- Sandstorm

--> Quality is a little pants, but that is made up for in the quick load time thanks to being hosted by (the now redundant -- they own youtube) "the googs."

--> Some slapping required: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3160476304834958368#

--> 9


High And Dry -- Radiohead

An epic tune with some excellent lyrics:

"Flying on your motorcycle watching all the ground beneath you drop.
You'd kill yourself for recognition, kill yourself to never ever stop."

"You broke another mirror, you're turning into something you are not."

Give it a bash:




Project Cosmonaut

A beaut of a high energy, quick-paced, super-synth driven track. Aren't I good with cheap words?!

A good bit of Goa might be just what the doctor ordered, especially if things are sh*t at the moment, this might just be the boost you need to enter the sublime world of "those that fly above the crowds."

A real feel good belter this is.

I highly recommend the FLAC version, choose the "EKTO FLAC" link below.

Give the bad boy a b*tchslap:

Finger Eleven -- Good Times

A nice and powerful, thick sound with semi-clear vocals.

It's like if you crossed an emo with "Disturbed."

Not quite disturbed and not quite worthless utter shite either. An amusing hybrid that seems to work and not work at the precise same time.

Blast on the b*stard:
