half baked glitch banger

Here I tried to apply this technique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTXsfk-28Yk of kinda extreme granular sampling, but in bitwig. Not succeeded much to be honest, resulting samples are not very different from the source - I used unreleased woulg's track - https://youtu.be/aqkFUOHXb8k?t=214 as a source for drums and bass. Also used my own weeklybeats submission from week#2 as a sample source, hi-pitched delayed chords are from there. And last but not least sampled Enya's song for that midrange 1/16 stutter, just took random parts and copied/pasted/ctrl+D all the way through.
Quick, dirty and definitely an unfinished sketch. At least I should replace or process original woulg's samples to make them kinda my own. But I'm really liking this sample based workflow, usually I start with some chord progression or a bassline, but here I don't even know what key this song is in! All samples are pitched by ear, probably I fucked up somewhere, but who cares, and all mistakes could be corrected someday later if I return to working on this track.
The speed and ease of this approach are very inspiring! It's similar to magazine cutout collage in many regards,
will definitely do more sketches like that, it's so fun!

The intro builds anticipation really well, I couldn't wait for the bass to drop. Boy did it deliver! Loving the work! Another favourite!
