my fav. chaos-percussion track this round (and there are a lot of them). the percussion is awesome - tons of momentum - almost rocked the headphones right off my head. use of samples excellent. really enjoyed it. maybe it felt a little repetetive towards the end or so.

cool noise man. very groovy. with so much percussive rhythm, i would do some gating of the whole track volume at certain points with the global volume command. just to break up the sound and jam with the beat.

the lead that comes in at 1:40 and subsequent duo is cool man! :)

this is too rocking to not have more overdriven bass on the kick and maybe a couple of your crispies being extra crispy in a different stereo/eq so as to not all be together in center channel as much.

i'm really glad you are here mutilus. i always enjoy your tracks. :)

I thought this was crap at first but all I had to do was hang in there and it made sense...

Holy crap! Q-bert is going crazy on the turntables for 5 minutes!
Agree with d-less about some of the drums mixing. I think they could use to be more punchy, but your rhythms are bang on, really tight and the skippityness creates mesmerising cadences. Hope to hear more tight stuff from you soon :)

Funny, yestarday keith showed me that Rubber Johnny video by Aphex Twin. I can imagine a similar strange dark video with trees and lightnings synchronized to your tune. Maybe some retriggering here and there might have given some extra push to the sound but indeed it is very thrilling already!
