Excellent. Great gathering/mixing of Apoxode samples and original material. Spoken word samples are scary as !@#! too.

Oh yes.
What a duo. Apoxode & Scomber - two high class mixes!

This is quite an exciting mix! Lots of great energy, and an excellent crafting of samples. I am very eager to get a hold of the speech samples used in the beginning, can you tell me where they are from? Also, would you mind making your acappella available? — I would like to remix it! Thank you so much for your hard work!

Glad you liked it A! The drone operator guy was a snippet from “ What It’s Like to Be a Drone Pilot | The Story of Us” on Youtube. I’ll upload the pellas this evening

Not only excellent production and use of samples, but I can appreciate treating a serious subject with wryness and hooks… sometimes stridency and old-fashioned grimness is fine, but I’d rather see catchiness being used to increase awareness and critical thinking, than to sell soap ;)

Was thinking Id do something dark, but it was much too sunny outside.
Was hoping that the popness didnt detract from the seriousness of the issue. Cheers Duckett!

When I read about the anti-drone sentiment, I feared that they were excluding ambient music (not that it can be more obscure, really).

I like the way the backing track helps the vocal keep its punch.

I was sure one of our esteemed ambient mixters was going to crack the drone gag. Thanks for your review G!
