No text, just music, Part 4

The chapter-writing continues, so the music posts continue as well.

"Ratman (Hugo Remix)" by Minimono

Ratman - Hugo Remix - Minimono

So I love resonant bass on this one (starting around 0:31 and continuing from there); the bass drums are pitched very low on this one, so you need to listen to this through good earphones or a set of speakers with good woofers, because otherwise you'll be wondering what all the fuss is about. I also am somewhat fascinated with the insertion of crowd noises / conversation (around 1:31 the first time, then passim), which I think was the addition of the remixer, as I can't find it in the original. The other remixes and the original mix are also pretty good and can be found here, on

P.S. Tonight was also the night that the Mumbai terror attacks began, so I was up until 3 or 4 in the morning, gripped by the mixture of hysteria and help on the #mumbai Twitter stream. If you are concerned about people you know who are in Mumbai, you can go to the Mumbai Help blog to see a list of the deceased, injured and rescued. They also posted the help phone lines for some of the hotels. Also, take a look at the comment thread in the top post, entitled "May We Help?" if you want to try and help out; people will post requests to relay messages, call numbers, type up the names of the dead, etc.
