Default Earthbound

Please, PLEASE forgive me if there is another thread on this, but I can't find one anywhere and they are a bit of great electronica.

A while ago, I came across an electronica album circulating on torrent sites claiming to be Daft Punk. That album was Earthbound. It was an excellent bunch of songs. But it wasn't Daft Punk. After a little investigation, I found out that Earthbound was the band's name. Here's the bio provided (a la Last.FM):

Quote:
Earthbound is a trance group from Borås, Sweden with the following two members: Anders Eriksson and Fredrik Johansson.

Earthbound was formed in 1994 by Anders Eriksson, Fredrik Johansson and Carl-Oskar Andreasson. After the first EP “Hypocondric Lovesick EP” in 1996, Andreasson left the group.

In 1997, Earthbound released a single called “Heartbeat” and in early 1998 they released “Everyone” that became a radio hit in Sweden.

But it was with “Essence of Life” in 1999 that the real breakthrough came. The track was remixed by Skynet UK and John “00” Fleming and was also released in England by Eve Records.

Later in 1999, the release of “One Nation - Trance Nation” became Earthbound’s greatest success. The single was then followed by the double-disc album, also called “Earthbound”. This album was also nominated for a Swedish “Grammis” Award under the category “Best Modern Dance”.
Honestly, it is perhaps my favorite electronica album and it seems that nobody's heard of them.

I had a look on Last FM and sadly it's all from some other random band called Earthbound.
Found the video for One Nation, Trance Nation though, not my thing but to be fair i've heard far worse in that genre!

This is NOT Daft Punk. It is Earthbound.
