MusicBrainz is a project that aims to create an open data music database, similar to the freedb project. MusicBrainz was founded in response to the restrictions placed on the Compact Disc Database, a database for software applications to look up audio CD information on the Internet. MusicBrainz has expanded its goals to reach beyond a compact disc metadata storehouse to become a structured open online database for music. MusicBrainz captures information about artists, their recorded works, the relationships between them. Recorded works entries capture at a minimum the album title, track titles, the length of each track; these entries are maintained by volunteer editors. Recorded works can store information about the release date and country, the CD ID, cover art, acoustic fingerprint, free-form annotation text and other metadata; as of 21 September 2018, MusicBrainz contained information about 1.4 million artists, 2 million releases, 19 million recordings. End-users can use software that communicates with MusicBrainz to add metadata tags to their digital media files, such as FLAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis or AAC.
MusicBrainz allows contributors to upload cover art images of releases to the database. Internet Archive provides the bandwidth and legal protection for hosting the images, while MusicBrainz stores metadata and provides public access through the web and via an API for third parties to use; as with other contributions, the MusicBrainz community is in charge of maintaining and reviewing the data. Cover art is provided for items on sale at Amazon.com and some other online resources, but CAA is now preferred because it gives the community more control and flexibility for managing the images. Besides collecting metadata about music, MusicBrainz allows looking up recordings by their acoustic fingerprint. A separate application, such as MusicBrainz Picard, must be used for this. In 2000, MusicBrainz started using Relatable's patented TRM for acoustic fingerprint matching; this feature allowed the database to grow quickly. However, by 2005 TRM was showing scalability issues as the number of tracks in the database had reached into the millions.
This issue was resolved in May 2006 when MusicBrainz partnered with MusicIP, replacing TRM with MusicDNS. TRMs were phased out and replaced by MusicDNS in November 2008. In October 2009 MusicIP was acquired by AmpliFIND; some time after the acquisition, the MusicDNS service began having intermittent problems. Since the future of the free identification service was uncertain, a replacement for it was sought; the Chromaprint acoustic fingerprinting algorithm, the basis for AcoustID identification service, was started in February 2010 by a long-time MusicBrainz contributor Lukáš Lalinský. While AcoustID and Chromaprint are not MusicBrainz projects, they are tied with each other and both are open source. Chromaprint works by analyzing the first two minutes of a track, detecting the strength in each of 12 pitch classes, storing these 8 times per second. Additional post-processing is applied to compress this fingerprint while retaining patterns; the AcoustID search server searches from the database of fingerprints by similarity and returns the AcoustID identifier along with MusicBrainz recording identifiers if known.

On 20 January 2006, the first commercial venture to use MusicBrainz data was the Barcelona, Spain-based Linkara in their Linkara Música service. On 28 June 2007, BBC announced that it has licensed MusicBrainz's live data feed to augment their music Web pages; the BBC online music editors will join the MusicBrainz community to contribute their knowledge to the database. On 28 July 2008, the beta of the new BBC Music site was launched, which publishes a page for each MusicBrainz artist.

Hardcore (electronic dance music genre)
Hardcore is a subgenre of electronic dance music that originated in the Netherlands from the emergent raves/gabber in the 1990s. Its subgenres are distinguished from other electronic dance music genres by faster tempos, the intensity of the kicks and the synthesized bass, the rhythm and the atmosphere of the themes, the usage of saturation and experimentation close to that of industrial dance music. To understand the emergence of hardcore one has to go back to the 1970s, to find signs of hard electronic dance music within industrial music. Groups such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, SPK, Foetus and Einstürzende Neubauten produced music using a wide range of electronic instruments; the message diffused by industrial was very provocative. Some of the musical sounds and experimentation of industrial have directly influenced hardcore since the beginning of the movement. In the mid-1980s, under the influence of the Belgian group Front 242, electronic body music, a new genre more accessible and more dancing inspired by industrial and new wave, appeared.
This style is characterized by minimalism, cold sounds unlike disco, funk or house, with powerful beats combined with aggressive vocals and an aesthetic close to industrial or punk music. When EBM has met new beat, another Belgian genre, acid house, the music has changed to a harder sound. All the elements were here for the arrival of hardcore; the term hardcore is not new in the music world. It was first used to designate a more radical movement within punk rock which, in addition to hardening the music attached importance to their attitude and their way of life as in the street where it was born: violent, but engaged and sincere; the term has been reused when hip-hop emerged in the late 1980s, designating the harder part of the hip-hop, with the same characteristics: a harder sound, engaged lyrics and a whole way of life dedicated to the respect of the values shown by rappers like KRS-One or Public Enemy. The term hardcore techno has first been used by EBM groups like à. Pankow, Leæther Strip in the late 1980s, although their music had nothing to do with hardcore.
À. In 1990, the German producer Marc Trauner known as Mescalinum United is the first to claim to make hardcore techno with his track We Have Arrived considered as a track founding the genre; the band Together released its track "Hardcore Uproar" in 1990, music journalist Simon Reynolds has written books on hardcore techno, covering bands like L. A. Style and Human Resource. In the early 1990s, the terms hardcore and darkcore were used to designate some primitive forms of breakbeat and drum and bass which were popular in England and from which have emerged several famous producers like The Prodigy, Lords of Acid and Goldie, it introduced sped up hip-hop breakbeats, piano breaks and low frequency basslines and cartoon-like noises, retrospectively called'old skool' hardcore, is regarded as the progenitor of happy hardcore and jungle. Around 1993, the style became defined and was named hardcore, as it left its influences of the techno of Detroit; the official birth of the hardcore is known as the release of the track "We Have Arrived" from the German producer Mescalinum United, from Frankfurt, that has become one of the bastions of the hardcore at its start.
Acardipane founded the label Planet Core Productions in 1989 and has produced more than 500 tracks, including 300 by himself till 1996. Another important name of the hardcore scene has started at PCP: Miroslav Pajic, better known as Miro. Among other things, the group PCP has popularized a slow, heavy and dark form of hardcore, now designated as darkcore or doomcore. In the United States, the New York pioneer of techno Lenny Dee launched the label Industrial Strength Records in 1991 that has federated a large part of the American scene, making New York one of the biggest centers of early American hardcore. Other American producers on the label included Deadly Buda and The Horrorist, but the label has produced producers from other nationalities. At the same time in Rotterdam, the DJs and producers Paul Elstak and Rob Fabrie popularized a speedier style, with saturated bass-lines known as gabber, its more commercial and accessible form, the happy hardcorePaul Elstak founded Rotterdam Records in 1992, which became the first label of hardcore of the Netherlands.
In 1992 at Utrecht, a giant rave called The Final Exam has led to the creation of the label ID&T which launched in 1993 the concept of Thunderdome which popularized hardcore music in Europe with a list of compilations and events attracting thousands of young people launching the gabber movement. Just during the single year 1993, four compilations were released with increasing success. Lots of artists on those compilations have become famous stars like 3 Steps Ahead, DJ Buzz Fuzz, The Dreamteam, Omar Santana, Charly Lownoise and Mental Theo in the gabber/happy hardcore registry; the same year, the label Mokum Records is created by Freddy B which has had success thanks to artists and groups like Technohead Tellurian, The Speedfreak, Scott Brown, the Belgian musician Liza N'Eliaz pioneer of the speedcore. In England, the members of the sound system Spiral Tribe, including Stormcore, 69db, Crystal Distortion and Curley have hardened
Full Metal Jacket
Full Metal Jacket is a 1987 war film directed, co-written, produced by Stanley Kubrick and starring Matthew Modine, R. Lee Ermey, Vincent D'Onofrio and Adam Baldwin; the screenplay by Kubrick, Michael Herr, Gustav Hasford was based on Hasford's novel The Short-Timers. The storyline follows a platoon of U. S. Marines through their training focusing on two privates and Pyle, who struggle to get through boot camp under their abusive drill instructor, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, the experiences of two of the platoon's Marines in the Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War; the film's title refers to the full metal jacket bullet used by soldiers. The film was released in the United States on June 26, 1987, it was the last of Kubrick's films to be released during his lifetime. Full Metal Jacket received critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for Kubrick and Hasford. In 2001, the American Film Institute placed it at No. 95 in their "AFI's 100 Years...100 Thrills" poll.
During the United States' involvement in the Vietnam War, a group of Marine Corps recruits arrive at Parris Island, South Carolina, for boot camp. The ruthless drill instructor, employs forceful methods to turn the recruits into combat-ready Marines. Among the recruits are privates "Joker", "Cowboy", the overweight and dim-witted Leonard Lawrence, whom Hartman nicknames "Gomer Pyle". Pyle is inept at basic training, but improves after Hartman pairs him with Joker. However, when Hartman discovers a contraband doughnut in Pyle's foot locker, he adopts a collective punishment policy, punishing the rest of the platoon for Pyle's mistakes. One night, the recruits haze Pyle with a blanket party. Following this incident, Pyle reinvents himself as a model recruit and shows particular expertise in marksmanship; this impresses Hartman, but worries Joker, who notices Pyle talking to his rifle and believes that he may be suffering a mental breakdown. The recruits receive their Military Occupational Specialty assignments.
Joker is assigned to Military Journalism, while most of the others – including Cowboy and Pyle – are assigned to Infantry. During the platoon's final night on Parris Island, Joker discovers Pyle in the bathroom loading his rifle. Pyle executes drill commands and loudly recites the Rifleman's Creed, waking the others, including Hartman, who storms into the bathroom, insults Pyle and orders him to surrender the rifle. Pyle shoots Hartman dead and kills himself, while Joker watches in horror. In January 1968, Joker – now a sergeant – is a war correspondent in South Vietnam for Stars and Stripes with Private First Class Rafterman, a combat photographer. Rafterman wants to go into combat. At the Marine base, Joker is mocked for his lack of the thousand-yard stare, indicating his lack of war experience, they are interrupted by the start of the Tet Offensive as the North Vietnamese Army unsuccessfully attempts to overrun the base. The following day, the journalism staff is briefed about enemy attacks throughout South Vietnam.
Joker is sent to Phu Bai, accompanied by Rafterman. They meet the Lusthog Squad. Joker accompanies the squad during the Battle of Huế, where platoon commander "Touchdown" is killed by the enemy. After the Marines declare the area secure, a team of American news journalists and reporters enter Huế and interviews various Marines about their experiences in Vietnam and their opinions about the war. While patrolling Huế, Crazy Earl, the squad leader, is killed by a booby trap, leaving Cowboy in command; the squad becomes lost, Cowboy orders Eightball to scout the area. A Viet Cong sniper wounds Eightball and Doc Jay, the squad medic. Cowboy learns that tank support is unavailable and orders the team to prepare for withdrawal; the squad's machine gunner, "Animal Mother", attempts to save his comrades. He discovers there is only one sniper, but Doc Jay and Eightball are killed when Doc Jay attempts to indicate the sniper's location. While maneuvering toward the sniper, Cowboy is killed. Animal Mother leads an attack on the sniper.
Joker discovers the sniper, a teenage girl, attempts to shoot her, but his rifle jams and alerts her to his presence. Rafterman shoots the sniper, mortally wounding her; as the squad converges, the sniper first prays and the sniper begs for death saying "shoot me, shoot me" prompting an argument about whether or not to kill her or "Let her rot" said by Animal Mother. Animal Mother decides to allow a mercy killing. After some hesitation, Joker shoots her; the Marines congratulate him on his kill as Joker stares into the distance. The Marines march toward their camp, singing the "Mickey Mouse March". Joker states in narration that despite being "in a world of shit", he is glad to be alive and is no longer afraid. Matthew Modine as Private J. T. "Joker" Davis: A wise-cracking young recruit. Modine kept a diary on set, adapted into a book in 2005 and an interactive app in 2013. Vincent D'Onofrio as Private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence: An over-weight and slow-minded recruit, the subject of Hartman's mockery.
D'Onofrio heard of the auditions for the film from Matthew Modine. Using a rented video camera and dressed in army fatigues, D'Onofrio recorded his audition. Despite Kubrick's saying that Pyle was "the hardest part to cast in the whole movie", he responded to D'Onofrio, telling the actor that he had won the part. D'Onofrio was required to gain 70 pounds. R. Lee Ermey as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: A Parris Island drill instructor. Ermey served as a U. S. Marine drill instructor during the Vietnam War and used this experience to ad l
The Netherlands is a country located in Northwestern Europe. The European portion of the Netherlands consists of twelve separate provinces that border Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, the North Sea to the northwest, with maritime borders in the North Sea with Belgium and the United Kingdom. Together with three island territories in the Caribbean Sea—Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba— it forms a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; the official language is Dutch, but a secondary official language in the province of Friesland is West Frisian. The six largest cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Tilburg. Amsterdam is the country's capital, while The Hague holds the seat of the States General and Supreme Court; the Port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe, the largest in any country outside Asia. The country is a founding member of the EU, Eurozone, G10, NATO, OECD and WTO, as well as a part of the Schengen Area and the trilateral Benelux Union.
It hosts several intergovernmental organisations and international courts, many of which are centered in The Hague, dubbed'the world's legal capital'. Netherlands means'lower countries' in reference to its low elevation and flat topography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding 1 metre above sea level, nearly 17% falling below sea level. Most of the areas below sea level, known as polders, are the result of land reclamation that began in the 16th century. With a population of 17.30 million people, all living within a total area of 41,500 square kilometres —of which the land area is 33,700 square kilometres —the Netherlands is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. It is the world's second-largest exporter of food and agricultural products, owing to its fertile soil, mild climate, intensive agriculture; the Netherlands was the third country in the world to have representative government, it has been a parliamentary constitutional monarchy with a unitary structure since 1848.
The country has a tradition of pillarisation and a long record of social tolerance, having legalised abortion and human euthanasia, along with maintaining a progressive drug policy. The Netherlands abolished the death penalty in 1870, allowed women's suffrage in 1917, became the world's first country to legalise same-sex marriage in 2001, its mixed-market advanced economy had the thirteenth-highest per capita income globally. The Netherlands ranks among the highest in international indexes of press freedom, economic freedom, human development, quality of life, as well as happiness; the Netherlands' turbulent history and shifts of power resulted in exceptionally many and varying names in different languages. There is diversity within languages; this holds for English, where Dutch is the adjective form and the misnomer Holland a synonym for the country "Netherlands". Dutch comes from Theodiscus and in the past centuries, the hub of Dutch culture is found in its most populous region, home to the capital city of Amsterdam.
Referring to the Netherlands as Holland in the English language is similar to calling the United Kingdom "Britain" by people outside the UK. The term is so pervasive among potential investors and tourists, that the Dutch government's international websites for tourism and trade are "holland.com" and "hollandtradeandinvest.com". The region of Holland consists of North and South Holland, two of the nation's twelve provinces a single province, earlier still, the County of Holland, a remnant of the dissolved Frisian Kingdom. Following the decline of the Duchy of Brabant and the County of Flanders, Holland became the most economically and politically important county in the Low Countries region; the emphasis on Holland during the formation of the Dutch Republic, the Eighty Years' War and the Anglo-Dutch Wars in the 16th, 17th and 18th century, made Holland serve as a pars pro toto for the entire country, now considered either incorrect, informal, or, depending on context, opprobrious. Nonetheless, Holland is used in reference to the Netherlands national football team.
The region called the Low Countries and the Country of the Netherlands. Place names with Neder, Nieder and Nedre and Bas or Inferior are in use in places all over Europe, they are sometimes used in a deictic relation to a higher ground that consecutively is indicated as Upper, Oben, Superior or Haut. In the case of the Low Countries / Netherlands the geographical location of the lower region has been more or less downstream and near the sea; the geographical location of the upper region, changed tremendously over time, depending on the location of the economic and military power governing the Low Countries area. The Romans made a distinction between the Roman provinces of downstream Germania Inferior and upstream Germania Superior; the designation'Low' to refer to the region returns again in the 10th century Duchy of Lower Lorraine, that covered much of the Low Countries. But this time the corresponding Upper region is Upper Lorraine, in nowadays Northern France; the Dukes of Burgundy, who ruled the Low Countries in the 15th century, used the term les pays de par deçà for the Low Countries as opposed to les pays de par delà for their original
"Kernkraft 400" is a song performed by German techno artist Zombie Nation and the first single from their album Leichenschmaus. Released in 1999, it reached number 22 in Germany in February 2000, it reached number 10 in Flemish Belgium and number five in the Netherlands. In September, the song debuted and peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, remaining there for two weeks behind Mariah Carey and Westlife's version of "Against All Odds", has since received a Gold certification from the British Phonographic Industry for sales of at least 400,000 copies, it peaked at number two in Ireland. The song is used as a sports chant at sport stadiums all over the world and was ranked number eight by Sports Illustrated in their list of "Top 10 Stadium Anthems"; the first Zombie Nation record contained the song "Kernkraft 400", a remix of the soundtrack of the 1984 Commodore 64 game Lazy Jones by David Whittaker called "Star Dust", made with the SID chip. "Star Dust" in turn has been said to borrow.
Though permission for the sampling was not granted, Florian Senfter paid an undisclosed sum to David Whittaker for the use of the melody. The song is sometimes misnamed as "Zombie Nation", as the artist's name can be heard in the, otherwise instrumental, track; the original "Star Dust" melody was in C, whereas "Kernkraft 400" is in B. "Kernkraft 400" was released as a 12-inch single by Gigolo Records on 15 March 1999. The single was released in the United Kingdom on 18 September 2000 by Data Records; the music video of Kernkraft 400 starts out inside a nuclear power plant room where an infomercial host dressed in'70s disco clothing comes out and two models come onto scene dancing. One model puts a plate of food into a trademarked Kernkraft 400™ microwave oven, which cooks the food much faster and hotter than the other model's conventional microwave oven. Mindy gets into a standard tanning bed, while Cindy waits before getting into a Kernkraft 400™. Mindy reveals a sunburnt tan, while Cindy has a perfect sun tan which has worked under her beachwear.
The host sits on a couch in the studio, off camera, where he examines a standard vibrator and a Kernkraft 400™ version. As the camera pulls away, both women are seen running towards the host while the video production staff are seen wearing hazmat suits; the video was produced and directed by Hendrik Hölzemann, Grischa Schmitz and Dominique Schuchman who at that time were studying film at the Filmacademy Ludwigsburg, under the name Panic Pictures. Select gave the single a review noting its widespread popularity stating that it was "as welcome in Pacha as in the Munich underpass and Coxo like this Teutonic techno," as well as noting it was "Not bad for a couple of DJs called Splank and Mooner". "Kernkraft 400" has been sampled by various artists, including rapper The Game in the single "Red Nation". It is featured in the soundtrack of the 2012 video game NHL 13, which uses the "Stadium Chant Mix" version; the song is most famously used by the Boston Bruins who play it at home games after a goal is scored.
The Bruins have been using it for nearly 19 years when the song was released. It grew in popularity within the hockey community during the 2011 and 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs when the Bruins had two deep runs; the Pittsburgh Steelers have played this song pre-game kickoff since before 2010. The Seattle Mariners play the song after a big hit or during rallies at T-Mobile Park; the Los Angeles Dodgers play the song after a home run. The UCF Knights use it as a rallying anthem; when the song plays, UCF fans jump chanting "U-C-F Knights" during the breaks in the song. The song became controversial on campus as it is a queue for fans to start jumping, which when done in unison makes Spectrum stadium bounce, earning it the nickname "The Bounce House". University officials wanted to stop playing the song all together for the longevity of the 2007 built stadium, but settled to play the song less. Penn State football has been using Kernkraft 400 since as early as 2006. During the break in the song, fans chant "We Are Penn State."
The song has become the anthem of the football club FK Austria Wien. Kernkraft 400 became a semi-official anthem for Welsh football fans during their country's qualification campaign for UEFA Euro 2016; this stems from an incident after their 0–0 draw with Belgium at Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels, in which the travelling Welsh fans danced enthusiastically to the song being played over the stadium's public address system. As a result, the song was played before the return fixture at Cardiff City Stadium on 12 June 2015. Supporters of Scottish Football team Celtic FC, chant the song during games against Rangers, in a reference to Rangers' death and rebirth during their financial difficulties in 2012. Yasuaki Yamasaki who plays for Yokohama DeNA Baystars, Japan's Central League, uses Kernkraft 400 when he takes the mound with so-called fans' Yasuaki-Jumps in Japan
Zombie Nation (musician)
Zombie Nation is a German project of the DJ and producer Florian Senfter. Zombie Nation's single "Kernkraft 400" was on music charts worldwide in 1999; the first Zombie Nation five track EP was released in the spring of 1999 on DJ Hell's label, International DeeJay Gigolo Records. A remix of the song "Kernkraft 400" on this debut release landed in high chart-positions all over the world, including number 2 in the United Kingdom. Since 2001, Florian Senfter has released tracks on different labels under Zombie Nation and his other pseudonym John Starlight. In 2002 he did not renew his contract with International DeeJay Gigolo Records and started his own label, Dekathlon Records, where he released the second album "Absorber" in 2003. In early 2005, the new sublabel UKW Records was launched with John Starlight's John's Addiction Part 1 followed by Paeng Paeng 12" by Zombie Nation, recorded a few months later. Sven Väth realized the potential of that song at first glance and licensed it for his Cocoon Recordings imprint.
The third album Black Toys, released in 2006 on UKW Records Zombie Nation is a bass dominated soundscape from tech-hop to funk-laden house. In 2007 Zombie Nation collaborated with Tiga under the pseudonym ZZT on the recording "Lower State of Consciousness". Zombie Nation is known today as electronic music live act. Different from a DJ, he uses musical hardware on stage to create sounds; the main instrument is an Akai MPC 4000 Music sequencer which he uses in combination with a mixing console and several effects units to do a live arrangement and Mix of his music. In December 2009 and January 2010 Zombie Nation created a collectively orchestrated track, Florian tells the story like so: One cold day in December I had a brainwave. An idea for internet democratic music, made as a collaboration with my boys and girls on Facebook and Twitter. If you’re reading this you already know that it is my declared passion to mash samples together on my MPC, so the logical first step was to issue the callout: “send me your sounds!”In the week that followed, my dropbox was inundated with whistles and burps.
The next step was to split the sounds into categories and present them in 10 polls, open the voting up to the world. I created loops from the most popular sounds, opened them up to another popularity contest; the people spoke, once again, chose their favourite five loops. In the following weeks, between sessions taking my beloved MPC all over the world, I worked out an arrangement. A song! Part of this work was done streaming video from the studio, with about three hundred people watching and contributing to the decision making process. After a final round of feedback on the arrangement through SoundCloud, the song was finalised. Tada! The last step was to make the parts available to the public, so anyone could have a bash and submit a remix. We selected the six most interesting and unique remixes, included them in the package. Now only one thing was missing – a name! This was one element of the project, beyond the capabilities of online democracy; the polling system hit its technical limits. So I decided to discuss the name with my new studio buddies, the people behind the original sounds submitted!
And at last, we had reached the end of the road. This project was not an attempt to make a logical song, a marketable piece of music, or one that would appeal to most. Rather, the idea was to produce a democratic piece of music, and I am happy to say that it worked out great!. The result was a track by "Zombie Nation and Friends" titled "The Mind of Many"; the sounds were by: 48oooooooooo, Coronium, D. L. I. D, Drop The Lime, Flex Rock, Greg Shin, jhk, Jumping Jack Flash, Kim Moyes, L33ch, MAMM, Nina Lou, Noize Generation, Pablo Decoder, Plastique de Reve, Prozac Polka, Randee Bugga, Shir Khan, Solar Explosion, Swam, The Model, Uboot, uπit, Yibn; the artwork was sent by hannes at freieradikale.at and the song name “the mind of many” was proposed by Stephanie Nazywalskyj. At the moment, in addition to the original, there are number of remixes including ones by MAMM, Noize-Generation, Operette, Plastique-de-reve, obi-blanche. 1999 - Leichenschmaus 2003 - Absorber 2006 - Black Toys 2009 - Zombielicious 2011 - Partys Over Earth as ZZT with Tiga 2012 - RGB 2001 - Kernkraft 400 2001 - Unload 2003 - Souls at Zero, 12" 2003 - The Cut, 12" + DJ Naughty Remix 2005 - Paeng Paeng, 12" 2005 - Paeng Paeng + Meatmaster Jack, 12" 2006 - Money Talks, 12" 2007 - Gizmode, 12" 2007 - Lower State of Consciousness, 12" as ZZT with Tiga including Justice Remix.
