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

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:



009 Sound System -- Standing Stones

An interesting and somewhat mellow piece. With periods of energy "interspliced" with some interesting riffs and whatnot.

Recommended background music for a slow day.

Doesn't necessarily have to be played loud to be enjoyed, clarity and volume are however a plus, if your 'gear is capable of both simultaneously.

Overall, a nice chilled track.

Hoof the f*cker in the face:





Now, it's long been established that any stealing of useful links to free or excellent music that can be legally played/obtained has been a little secretive.

But.. today the "Team Of One" (I, moi, me, yours truly) blow open the doors because in one of my RSS feeds I have got a summary of '09 and her best moozik.

Check it out and get smashin'!

EKTO: http://www.ektoplazm.com/journal/the-best-free-psytrance-of-2009/


(I have much of the psytrance listed in the post and can confirm that there is some incredible stuff there. Download the lot in FLAC format if you can afford the extra discspace and bandwidth.)


Everything But The Girl -- Missing

A golden oldie which you will no doubt have heard. A reliable piece of background music that used to be all the rage back in the day and is still played now and then.

"Like the deserts miss the rain.." gotta love that lyric!

There are also tonnes of versions and remixes, but for the moment I will list just one version -- the original mix.

Knock it's teeth down it's throat:



(Given the tracks age, it's difficult to get a reliable link to a good"ish" quality source, so it's tough guff ya whingey sods. hehe)


Clone -- Midnight Sunrise

This track is full of synergy, energy and incredible beats. Undertones, overtones and some excellent quality "moozic." (I have the 100% legal FLAC (ORIGINAL CD MASTER -UALITY) file obtained a wee while ago. 8-))

A good solid multi-paced sound.

I highly recommend that you listen to it all the way through, as with some goa/psytrance it can be slow to start.

Have at it:



(If it's not your cuppa Mr. T try anything else in the blog -- don't forget to choose HQ mode (360-480P in the bottom right of the YT player.)


Aspen -- Just Be Good To Me (Extended Mix)

A hot new track from Aspen, released this year (we are 24 days into it as this was typed -- a little nugget of useless information for you there)

With a throbbing, good quality, rich beat throughout.

Add some vocals and a thick, deep sound and you have the track.

I can see that this would make for some excellent remixes into other tracks, perhaps a Kraftwerk high-pace semi-remix.

Rather interestingly, this track is not for sale, but for promotional purposes for the Dance Project.

Female tree-bitch ahead, grab axe.. swing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrMezojqFZE


(Don't forget to click into 480P mode in the YT viewer)


Ntrance -- Set You Free

An epic, insanely popular smash of a track.

Needing no introduction to any lover of music and/or follower of the charts, this belter shot straight to the top (bar one) of the charts way back in '95. (Well, the number two slot anyway.)

Released again in 2001 as a not-quite-so-classic tune, you just can't beat the original. Apart from the film "Airplane II" that IS better than the original.

Things to listen for: Kelly Llorenna's distinctive vocals.

Whale Ho! -- Grab spear, throw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bcf5kzBCdy4


(Don't forget to click HQ, if you have the bandwidth for it!)

York -- On The Beach

First post of the new year, lets get straight to business...

... Another golden, electronic oldie!

If you haven't ever heard this you are either:

A: Newly born, congratulations on adding to the surplus population whilst contributing nothing but shitty nappies.

B: Stupid.

Lets get on with the music and stop the bitching.

I believe it was released back in 99/00. If that's wrong email one of the "team of one" here at MMP.
