Getting in "The Zone"

I just downloaded the PSN game Astro Tripper and after playing a fair bit of it, I wasn't doing very well in it.

One thing that was bothering me about this game is the complete lack of music in-game.
It does however support custom soundtracks... 
which actually just left me with another problem:

"What music goes well for a game like this?"

For some reason the first thing I though of when trying to think of some fitting music, was the music from the original Stardust for the Amiga.
... And sure enough I was able to find mp3's on the net of soundtrack to that game...

Sure enough as soon as I put this music on for the game, I was able to get in the zone, and did a lot better at the game.

I especially like this theme: Level 3
... Not that I was ever able to actually get to level 3 in the original Stardust game, but basically all the level-themes are similar. A simple thumping techno-loop... But I find that style so fitting for this kind of game.

And thus I want to ask what kind of custom music you choose for these kind of games? Preferable something legally downloadable.
I haven't even begun filling my PS3 with music.

I'd play a lot of eurodance/ trance


Take a look around newgrounds, tons of great user made music.  All free
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/198578

And how do you post a blog under general discussion.  I write that and it doesn't give anything

Thanks!

It's been a while since I've visited Newgrounds and back then I only think it was a flash-portal.

I kind of agree about the music genre for these type of games, although I would actually prefer music with LESS development or slower development than what you postet.
But I think I'll scout Newsground for music.

About posting in "general discussion". When you post your blog, it pretty much ask which forum to add the blog.
... And if it doesn't ask, then it's probably because you use Opera :-)
 - That's at least what happens when I use Opera, which is my preferred browser, but I've stopped using it with this site.
