Matt’s Random Video This Week is:

“With A Spirit” by Sound System 009.  I know, this is the stupid song everyone puts on their “People Falling Down Funny” or “Best Party Pics” photo and video compilations on You-Tube.  It’s 9 minutes long (or longer in the original version) fairly repetitive trance/techno;  However, I find this song to be full of variations through each section.  There are comprehensive lyrics, several verses in fact, with a refrain/chorus and layer upon layer of ambient instrumentation.  I can’t get enough of it.  I somehow feel like this song is a link to the future of music.  I know, I may be way off base and consider it possible that no souls share my opinion of said work, but there are deeper psyche triggers, I find, in the soothing melodic tones that strike me as rather nostalgic – of what I’m not sure, but nostalgic nonetheless.  I hope you enjoy.  If not, let me know.  Leave a comment, I’d love to hear your opinion!
