Nice to hear a lil’ dnb with a philosophical bent. It takes a certain skill to create a track like this, and you’ve got it. As to the freewill debate; hmmm, The Marquis de LaPlace (spelling?) was a smart son o’ gun, but his determinism has been scientifically blown out of the water by quantum mechanics, and morover, Heisenberg’s “uncertainty principal”.

Great track!

Thank you. It seems to be uncertain that the randomness that quantum mechanics suggest is the same randomness we speak of in everyday language. Even if it is, it seems to only occur a the quantum level. While it may be in contradiction to absolute determinism, it still doesn’t render determinism null beyond the quantum level. Either way, a lack of determinism, with or without possible randomness and quantum physics still doesn’t work in favor of free-will. I’m glad you like that track

The remix itself is a great breakbeat track
About the philosophical implications… I leave that to the philosophers.

Who cares about freewill when one is led to music like this. ;-) Good stuff!

Now I choose to put a pizza in the oven. Or do I?

Wow this demonstrates a lot of cut-up / retrigger skill. Pure IDM if ever I heard it.

Is the sample manipulation manual cutup or are you running samples through re-trigger effects.

Would love to know how the preciseness of the detail is accomplished.

Anyhoo, crackin track

Thanks for the comment. The cutup, retriggering, slicing, is a combination of both me manually slicing and dicing as well as some running through a cutup/glitch processor.

Somehow I missed the memorandum on this. It’s a new favorite of mine.
