Sometimes, you get to know that Ned Flanders sort of person, you know, very religious.
Thing is, there isnt a lot of electronic music that speaks about religion and related themes.
Fortunately, i heard a track (on a radio) yesterday, that speaks to all religious people.
Now, there are a ton of bands called Zodiac. In discogs, there are 27 different bands/artists with this name. But the one we are interested in is the 10th, a Swedish female duo.
Produced by somewhat renown Swedish producer/remixer Libido, this 1995 track is testament of belief and a wish of finding the holy place.
This track is also absolutely horrible. The fact that it is happy hardcore already makes me cringe, but its hilarious. I cant even describe it properly. Have a listen, but at your own risk.

But wait, theres more! Libido himself remixed the track! And what he did was turn this happy track into a hardstyle/speedcore track. Imagine that. The so-called "Holy Remix" is indeed holy. It makes me say holy shit at least.

But theres also a slightly better track in this single. (which btw, was Zodiac's only track ever made, so even they know it was shitty)
The Higher Ground, made by The Puff, turns this track on to a dubstepy/d'n'b-ish track, which actually doesnt sound too bad. But its best for you to give a listen.

To compensate, have one of the best French House basslines ever.

Thank William Lebreton and his "There's More To Music" show (Mondays 10pm to midnight GMT) on CUR1350 (Cambridge University Radio) for playing this piece of art. And by art, I of course mean shit.
