Heavy! Very much digging the stomping beat to this one.  Well done!

May 21, 2018 12:55 am

Strong beats but dark undertones. The glitching is awesome contrasted against the big drum hits.

Definitely getting a strong hip hop vibe mixed with glitch.  Sounds familiar and strange at the same time.  Nice work.

Great sample use

May 21, 2018 3:21 am

Coolness... bring on the bruises after the wild glitchy mosh pit! ... Chaaaaarge!

Weird and wild!  Really creative use of vocal samples!

May 21, 2018 5:52 pm

Very good mixture of all your skills. The hiphop vibe is very welcome.

May 21, 2018 9:43 pm

Hip hop, but not quite hip hop. Maybe alternate universe hip hop. As always: great work on deconstructing the vocal sounds! Very cool track!

Yeah, hip-hop is a fairly alien field for me, which is why I wanted to use this particular vocal.

This is fucking legit. Favorited.

That beat hits nicely and the stereo effects on the pads are nice.
Besides of that i absolutly dig that playfull voice only interlude big_smile
Big One!

Love the elaborate sampling, you built up a very interesting atmosphere/narrative smile

May 23, 2018 12:19 am

absolutely loving your sampling style ... this is addicting

May 23, 2018 11:23 pm

Loving this one ... conjures Prefuse to me a little as some of your past stuff has but not any of the ones this year I can remember, dig it. Kept wanting big steady drums to drop in, but kind of cool they don't, keeps more on edge. Great work!

very nice sampling chaotic yet controlled

May 24, 2018 11:42 am

works nicely, great groove... might be also the elements of a dub track somewhere there?

I hadn't listened to any recent Prefuse, but after checking recent stuff, I can certainly hear similarities. Good one!

Love how complex the stereo spread is heart Nice use of those samples, this tune is so nicely varied and well structured heart The stuttery rhythm in the second half especially works really well!
