March 1, 2022 - "Wait and Think" by Victor Ruiz
Release: Victor Ruiz - Time
Label: Inminimax Records
I have a playlist that I use to start my day, especially when I go rucking (which I resume a serious training program today.) "Wait and Think" by Victor Ruiz is the 4th song on that list and usually strikes about the time I need a push forward.
I enjoy the relentless beat of the song, which reminds me of something you might hear in a modern-day version of the arcade game Spy Hunter. It's a simplistic techno track in that there aren't a lot of additions to the song, nor are there a lot of changes. Instead, "Wait and Think" builds momentum that taps into the primeval part of my brain. It makes me either want glorious battle or 'uhn tiss' my ass off with glowsticks twirling as the beacons of joy into the ecstasy-driven kaleidoscopic darkness of a rave.
"Wait and Think" is the kind of song that people who knew me back in my raving days of the early to mid-1990s would tell you is my kind of techno song.
