Nite Time Tunes
Hey guys, it's Nite again, after two months of practically disappearing off the face of the Earth! I apologize sincerely for the lack of posting, as College work has been kicking my proverbial ass as of late. To make up for it, I have a bunch of Late Night Time based goodies for you to peruse through whenever you're in need of good electronic music. Shall we begin? Lets!
First off, in celebration of their 20th anniversary since their first Album, Underworld has re-released their LP, Dubnobasswithmyheadman (Yes, you read that correctly) in a remastered format. For those of you who know this group and love them, it's great news! The quality in their remastered tunes are significantly greater than their original 1994 tracks, with amplified sound, bass and other bits in there. To give an idea to what it sounds like,have a listen to one of my personal favorites from them, Surfboy. The freaking atmospheric power in this track is absolutely mind-blowing, to say the least!

Next up on the list is something out from one of my favorite Electronic artists ever, Moby. Now when it comes to Moby, he can be, at times, Hit and Miss (*Cough* Animal Rights *Cough*) But when he hits it, oh boy, he fucking NAILS it, especially with Remixes. Case in point, Moby did a very chill remix of his track, The Last Day, off of his album, Innocents. It's dark, sensual, and overall very enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend this track to anyone that needs something to zone out to, whilst having a steady beat at the same time.

Next off, is something straight from DJ Koze. Titled Amygdala, this track was put on my Desert Playlist for a reason. It's moody, eerie, yet chilling at the same time. I can't help but be addicted to this tune! (I would seriously check out this album, as the material on there is fantastic!)

The track I have here is an interesting one. You see, I am a fan of Celtic/Tribal Music, and have been since I was a wee lad. I love it even more when its combined with electronic beats in the background. Combine the two together, and you have Afro Celt Sound System. Fusing West-African and Celtic chants and Music with electronica, This Ethnic fusion group has produced a fair share of tracks that have raised my eyebrows in shock. The track I'm going to share with you is one of those notable tracks. Give it a try. You may find yourself liking the dark, tribal electronic music.

And finally, to conclude the goodies bonanza, here's some Crystal Castles (my favorite track, in fact)!
