Robotic Men Unite to be Acolytes
Anyway, during this recent "not-posting-but-lurking" period, i discovered some cool tracks. And yes, it is a random tracks post, but fear not, as soon as i get my shit done (which should be in about a week), i will make a specific post on a specific artist, but for now, onto the tracks.
We start off with a little british band called Delphic.
This track is off their debut album called "Acolyte" and guess what, im posting the title track itself!
It is nearly 9 minutes of a brilliant progressive track, which starts off slow, to speed up, then to slow down again and then to climax. This peak isnt even at the halfway mark, but somehow it just keeps on going until the very end.

Now, we have a rarity. This track you may have heard on The Twelves' latest mixtape, The Twelfth Hour. It is by a german duo called Methusalem, who released an album and two singles in 1980 and then dissapeared from the map.
This single, called "Robotism" is so rare that the 12' copies of it are worth about €100, which is quite expensive for a record.
As for the track, its funky disco at its peak. All it lacks are some vocals, and The 12's do that for us in their mixtape.

Now, something darker.
Kris Menace's label "Work It Baby" is celebrating it's 10th birthday, and to celebrate, they released a 2-cd compilation with exclusive tracks and old releases.
This is Menace's remix of Moonbotica's "Men of The Future".
It has that melodic, dreamy sound that is typical with Kris Menace, but the lead synth is fantastic is gives a bit more depth to a brilliant track.

And to finish this post, an exclusive. Ferrenl is a dutch bloke who doesnt really have much history in the music making business.
But the other day, he posted a mashup on TDC that is absolutely brilliant.
You all know SebastiAn's "Threnody". I called it the most stupid track of 2010, 4 days into it.
But what Ferrenl decided to do is to mashup this track with a Raw Man + Blanche track, more especifically "United".
The end result is fantastic. The classical intro of United builds up to the Threnody breakdown, using United's lyrics and finishes with the Threnody outro, all in less than 3 minutes.

In the meantime, Ferrenl tweaked it a bit, and ou can get version 2 off his soundcloud, but i prefer the original version.
A model of success,
