Man, I REALLY like this. I love the synth stabs almost acting as a snare hit.  Super fucking cool.

Aww thanks guys!   A little back story:  We used a writing tip from some book, which I forget the name of, where you pick a random short sentence from any text.  Keep reading the sentence until it develops a rhythm.  Then remove the words, but try to keep the melody of your natural speaking voice.   This is where the lyrics and most melodic parts came from.  We changed things up a bit, and edited to taste of course.  The marimba part ended up sounding cool so we skipped the lyrics.  Kick, Snare and Bass are from Logic(ES P).  Bottle plucks are Omnisphere, Marimba is EastWest Goliath, Hard Bass is Serum, 303 Lead is D16 Phoscyon, the Dub click is a beer being opened through some Echoboy, Shakers and a subtle off beat hit(tapping the bottom of  an empty beer can) were recorded through a Royer 101, Synth toms are played live on an Alesis Compact Kit 7 (with lots of verb and compression).  All of the vocals were through a TLM 103 > Warm Audio TB12.  No plugins on most vocals, just a touch of verb on the high ones.  Master bus was Slate VMR with a RC-Tube Mixbus and a touch of Revival, VBC Rack just tapping each compressor with a 50% mix of each, Kush Clariphonic, Slate VTM, and the slightest touch of L2.  Probably spent around 6 hours on it.   We will definitely use this writing technique again!
