Darude - Sandstorm

From beginning to end, this song is a sandstorm. It powers up mighty fast and, out of the blue, you’re catapulted straight into a dance frenzy. Or at least that’s probably the intention behind the unrelenting synth Gatling guns. The melody isn’t very complex, but all movements are well timed and interconnected to such a degree that this can become an addictive experience. This is the stuff that immortal songs are made of.

I can hardly believe this song is almost 20 years old. Its age, together with the sheer power carried by the sound waves definitely qualifies Sandstorm for the Blast from the Past category.

You can listen to the melody for free on BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. You can also purchase the song (or album) from this same location. However, I found that the quality of the BandCamp recording is rather poor, much more so than other stuff that the website allows online play for. However, this may not be an issue when purchasing, because then you are entitled to get a FLAC file. The question remains if the FLAC file is genuine or coded form a questionable source. But anyway, here’s the link:
