crank spider

Have been very lucky this year, it's not winter yet and have been having some great weather.  Fortunately have got to do a lot more mountain biking this year with friends and family.  Beautiful fall colors right now, hopefully can get a couple more weeks of biking in before the white stuff starts to fall.

nice title ... after reading your note, that's a mt. bike reference right? I like mt biking, have done too little this year, but having good weather down here in washington too, time to ride. When this bass dropped in, awesome and huge! Like the synth at 2 mins!! killer vocal sample.

Love the verb the snare is sitting in.  Ooof when the bass and kick come in it takes on an awesome trip hop feel.  The keys add a nice touch as well.  I could easily hear an mc over this.  Mos Def or Trickyish.  Nice Work!

groovy shit. Love the beats and the superstereo ride in the mix. Cool synth at 2:00. Well done. Be careful on your bike, please.

I love how you use the vocal sample like an atmospheric pad. Cool percussive lines as well. The moog-ish synth from 2min onwards has an awesome tone.

One of the hardest parts is coming up with a title each week, the title is a reference to part of the mountain bike, I had to have the crank spider worked on a few weeks ago after a miscommunication leading to a collision and a punctured tire (fortunately it was with my friend I was riding with and not some random person)
