Music You've Probably Never Heard -- Grab Bag 2, Techno Collection

Bah, long title.  Hey y'all, I'm back.  It's been a pretty slack week for posting.  Sorry about that.  I'm going to have to get better about it.  I want to have a schedule that I more or less follow, but for right now I've got a lot going on.  I still have one last fanfiction to finish, and I've got to work on publishable stuffs.

But anyway, music time.  This week I'm going to be telling you all about the songs I have in my collection playlist on youtube.  The best ones will get a mention here, and hopefully you'll like them as much as I do.  This week won't be for those deeply entrenched in the pop realm, I have to warn you.

Let's start off with a trio of songs by Acen.  My mom likes to comment that I like drug music, and despite the lack of drugs in my life, I have to admit that I like these songs.  This trio is known as Trip II the Moon, and it comes in three parts.  Part number one is my favorite, as it's the most story-esque.  Part 2 is more trippy, and part 3 is more pop accessible....for trippy stuff.   What they did was take some bits from a James Bond song and turn them into the most nuts thing you've ever heard.  Here ya go.

What else we got?  Would you like something more happy?  Sure!  Let me show you the most happy song that Happy Hardcore has to offer: Love, Life, and Happiness!  It's fun, and it will catch you off guard with how much you like it.

Love, Life, and Happiness:

Some of the stuff I like has a more urban feel to it, and this next song feels very much that way.  It's fun, but not the easiest song to get caught up in.  Very hypnotizing...

Is It True? (To The Unknown):

Okay, so I'm not really into Acen enough to give them their own week, but I will admit that I love another of their songs, Close Your Eyes.  This one right here is definitely more of a druggie song.  I'll include two remixes, though I'm sure there's like forty bajillion more.  I like the XXX version best, but I'll let you decide which you think is good.

Close Your Eyes (Remix II)(The Sequel):
Close Your Eyes (XXX Mix):

Dream Injection is just a beautiful trance song.  It really deserves a listen.  No really, just sit there and relax to it.  Don't worry about doing other things.  It's the perfect chillout song, and it reminds me so much of my childhood and adventurous days...the image in the video is absolutely perfect for the song. 

Dream Injection:

I just ran into Brainskan the other day, and they have two songs I really want you to check out.  The first of which is No Commin Back, a mostly lyricless piece with the totally acid sound and a right creepy party beat.  Seriously, it's good stuffs.  Human Spirit is a somewhat more cheesey song, but hey, I think you'll like it.

Human Spirit:

Wanna chill out with something less ecclectic?  Well, here you go, Pacific Wish.  It's very trancey, odd, and tropical.  The image with this vid sums it up well.  It's just a lot of fun and party.  Perfect for people who don't hang out in the more rave genres.

Pacific Wish:

Song of the Second Moon sounds like a really cheesey movie title, doesn't it?  It's actually the name of one of the weirdest mess songs I've ever heard.  You might not believe it, but this song was made in the fifties.  People have been working on electronic music for a long time.  The fifties spawned some weird stuff, because nobody was sure then where exactly this whole electronic music thing was going.

Song of the Second Moon:

Let's chill it down to finish this off.  Manifesto by Aztech is a very pleasant song, quiet and subdued.  It's perfect for calming down after all this weird mess.


Alright, so hopefully I'll be posting a little more this week, just to let y'all know that I'm still alive.  I like to write, and I actually need to stop lazing around.  Of course, my boyfriend is coming home soon from Afganistan, so we'll have to see.
