Daily Dose: ‘Dooms Night’ (Timo Maas remix) by Azzido da Bass

Not Doom night, you understand, that would suggest a different genre entirely. Instead, what we are dealing with here are multiple simultaneous independent dooms, which makes sense, since this is from the turn of the millennium when doom was all the rage. This is the very definition of a trance club banger, designed to be played at four in the morning when everyone is too sweaty to care anymore. It features a truly copious amount of what are termed in the trade as “Wubs”, so if you’re not a fan of that then steer well clear, this is electronic music close to its most basic. Azzido da Bass, which is sadly not his real name, (Ingo Martens, which is a pretty cool name of itself) is a producer and DJ from Germany, where the tradition of house and acid house are strong. This was his big UK hit, getting to number 8 in the chart, but only after it had been remixed by a one Timo Maas (real name, which is swell), another fine pillar of the German DR/record production scene of that time. This came out in 2000, is very of its time, and is unashamedly dance music. How much you get out of it is going to depend on how fondly you look back on that time or how much positive memories you have of being a club trying to enjoy yourself. Other than that, it’s alright.
