Took a middle section of the Peacock Pavillion song from earlier this year and used as starting point. Started adding  and adding parts, playing around. Then realized I needed to take a lot away. In the end, I think there's still a bit too much here. Master has two compressors, each sidechaining a different drum track. Works in some places I think, and in others less so. Needs some simplification for a final version, but there's some sounds and parts I like. A lot of the synth sounds are some Moog sample packs with some great presets put together by Afro DJ Mac.
Title was what popped into my head.

I think the complexity works well.  There are some super cool sounds in here.

Just the right amount of sauce.
