Advantages Soothes you to sleep
Recently I compiled the perfect post-clubbing listening tape, and it has been the best thing to soothe me off to sleep and drown out the ringing ears. I am so happy with it that I thought I’d share it with everyone!
Okay most hardcore clubbers will share the problem that I have when I get home: the inability to sleep. When I get home I’m usually buzzing, the transition from club to boring bedroom can be difficult so a little music helps a lot. It’s also essential to distract you from your unrelenting ringing ears.
12~ Chicane feat. Maire Brennan of Clannad ~ ‘Saltwater’
This is probably the most memorable Trance tune of 1999, and I think it is brilliant. There’s a haunting feel in the beat and the vocals, Maire Brennan has done an excellent job. The song is produced by Chicane and Ray Madman Hedges (who?!), and it’s done perfectly. This track is first on the compilation because I’m still in the mood to dance around when I first get home and this’ll calm me down. It automatically makes me close my eyes and listen quietly.
10~ BT ~ ‘Dreaming’ monsoon edit
I love this track and this mix is a mellower, more chilled version. I really like the lyrics:
‘ …catch my hand and come with me,
close your eyes and dreeaaamm’
8~ York ~ ‘The Awakening’ mellow mix
9~ Robert Miles ~ ‘Children’ dream version
This is another one of those tunes that you don’t forget easily, it’s got a catchy beat and sometimes it’s stuck it my head for hours. Probably not as mellow as the rest of the songs, and that’s why it’s early on in the listing.
7~ Faithless ~ ‘Salva Mea’ epic mix
‘Salva Mea’ begins with Dido’s haunting backing vocals, and then Maxi Jazz takes over:
This is an excellent track and the one which really brought my attention to Faithless. It just has to be on the compilation.6~ Delerium feat. Rani ~ ‘Underwater’ album version
‘Shed your armour, spin your web,
Hypnotise me, with the longest stare.
Make your promise, maybe it’s a threat?
When you look, you look right through me’
5~ William Orbit ~ ‘Barber’s Adagio For Strings’
This is a masterpiece by William Orbit, also on the ‘Laidback House CD2’ on the Ministry of Sound Chillout album. It is a beautiful track.
3~ Ultra X ~ ‘Tip’
A Trance track which is quite calming, has no vocals- but a very rhythmic beat. I do like this track a lot.
1~ Faithless ~ ‘Drifting Away’
This is the last track and it’s a perfect one to end with. The title says it all really, it’s a nice and easy to listen to track. The production is faultless, the lyrics are just right and the music is outstanding. What else can I ask for?!
