The tempo change effect on the vocals is super cool.  And trippy.

neato!

Something something almonds? Great chopping, love the rise... BoOm!

Drums are especially nice on this one. The tempo change is cool and gives the track a very good flow.
If i just listen without paying attention i maybe wouldn't notice it...

the tempo changes add a new dimension to your music. I think you should do more of this. there were lots of moments in this track that I enjoyed. tres bien.

There's one vocal part that actually reminds me of Imogen Heap.  She does a bit of processing vocal stuff.  Similar production sound which is very cool.  Love that end section with the tempo fluctuations.

How I love Imogen Heap. What a great comparison.

Love the choppy vocal samples. They formed a compelling melodic lead vocal. Great beats as well!

Very cool exploration of the samples, and it's been mentioned already but I'm also digging these tempo variations!

another gem, I like the use of human voices, again... great mood smile

Great use of the vocals, nice groove, like the drums a lot and how they come in and out.

Thanks! I was undecided about this piece for a fairly long time, until I decided to try messing with the tempo. I'm sure there will more of it in the future.

Like the percussion sound, kind of sounds like a rattle, great idea with the tempo change

May 10, 2018 8:20 am

Stellar work as usual. The drums complement perfectly without taking over or being not enough. Dig the tempo change too.

May 11, 2018 12:05 pm

love the vox, starts out a bit like musique concrète or something. And the track then becomes something indie electronic. Very interesting and very well balanced!

+1 on Imogen Heap.  Great track!  The disparate elements seem to blend in a very seamless way, despite being so "chopped" - you're on some DJ Shadow vibe, my man!

May 13, 2018 11:50 pm

Great work! Always inspired by your vocal editing mastery!

May 14, 2018 12:10 am

YES! Fantastic!

May 16, 2018 12:58 pm

Excellent beat with that one particular percussive element that scratches my ear worm in just the right places smile Nice work!

Outstandingly rich texture and surprising, but organic development! Digging this one a lot!  (And just hit the slow/stretch!)
