Damn Lass! You kick it down. What a wake up call! Despite what sound like reservations, this feels tight around the reigns to me, but in a very flowing and artistic manner. It’s got an early grip, waves in and out from the trance and breaks, heavy hitting and very global in its feel. It feels like a foreground music for a background montage of car races, rail-line vistas, rushed crowds and empty fields populated only by a few Mustangs (horses not cars) gathering on the hill and running off into the distance. Downloaded!

Fantastic hook. The sound is just so crystal clear and well balanced.
All aspects of production work for me here - the build-up and use of breaks - the combination of ambient soundscapes and raw dance beats.

(BTW - is that a Maelstrom blippy sound that plays along FHCIII?)

Nicely, nicely done.

Hmmm, are you talking about that distorted buzzy sound in the beginning? If it is, that’s the Stylus RMX with the buzz effect added. I then made two copies and ran each through Ohmicide distortion plug and automated a bunch of different types of distortion and feedback. I only used reason for some sound effects (The Combinator) and a couple snares and loops.

Naah - I’m imagining it then - I was referring to the blippy sound (example at 3:43) that’s a dead ringer for one of the maelström rhythmic blips.

Nice work! There is a lot of energy in this BT meets the Prodigy thriller. All around a good work.

You’re right…I wasn’t thinking of BT and Prodigy when I began this whole thing but now it all makes sense. The only difference is that BT would have kicked my ass in the ground with his programming and editing. I would never hope to stand up to him.

Definitely inspiring stuff, I agree with everyone else- if there’s off-sync moments, I can’t hear them ( but then again, I don’t have the electron-microscope hearing capabilities that some remixers do)!

N..n..nn o..o.. o..oo..o.ff.ff.. s..yyy.nn..cc.ee..d.d.d issues detected!
Put that track into my mp3 player in my brandnew BMW Z4 cabriolet on the first warm spring day. Arrived at a stoplight where two beautiful ladies immediately shaked their heads to the rhythm and asked me what kind of awesome music this is.
I gave them the link to your various remix sites. I hope it is okay?? ;-)
EQ settings seem to be ok too!:-)

Thanks to you Joe! Nice to hear positive feedback from you. My ultimate plan is to take this track as it was originally intended (without the rap) and add a huge orchestral background. The music will be different but the basic groove will remain intact.

What I like about this is you’ve taken the usual “hip hoppy, rappy whappy excuse my expletives” sound and created something very entertaining with lots of interest throughout.

Great work!

You really have your way with frequency distributions as well as spacing within a groove. Those dimensions are reasonably easy to understand but incredibly hard to pull off to the level of sophistication you seem to be doing with such ease.

In your hands the spoken word becomes melodic.

Astounding!

So here is the difference.

While i clamber into my single engine prop plane for a gentle Cruise flight now and again, the one they call `Lasswell’, takes his Jet fighter on a secret sortie into new territories and picks off the enemies strategic points while having a beer.

If you have a tabbed browser, then open one go here copy the add and paste it into the new tab. Return to the page via the new tab, turn down the original soundtrack and then play this mix while watching it.

No one blends beats and ambience in the way you can.

the production behind this is absolutely solid and I like how you combined several artists samples…to me that is what the community is about mashing multiple artists together… the ed pick list has kind of gotten away from that (I’m certainly guilty of this as well but if the track is worthy it’s worthy) regardless finding those audio gems that seem to be calling to one another is a sure fire way to get more exposure. As you mentioned Forensic’s vocal is out of sync in parts and to me seemed forced in places…but it also seemed like it fit by adding the glitchy percussion to it. Solid track overall as usual.

Damn Boi, this is banging, yet has feeling and ambience at the same time.

Being a MASSIVE fan of BT, this is right up my gracht (canal). How much vocal slicing goes on here? Fits perfect. I think break beat is the next track I’m going to spit out.

Nice to hear the gated pad/synth. Was very much a 90’s style (heavily used in hard core) that you don’t hear to much of any more.

Nice break ups with the cinematic pad’s and vocal ambience (using delays).

I really like this. Great.

I love it. I am a dancer and I just love the energy level of this song. I am not a big mixer (still learning). But I wish I can make such a nice music one day.
