    glad you liked it mate,

    used loadsa different stuff to make it, most of the dnb is from vinyl, just pitched like normal mixing
    stuff like massive attack and dj shadow was from a cd, just pitched to 90bpm, to mix with the 180bpm dnb
    it was all tidied up and put together using ableton, the warp feature doesn't work well for dnb, so I just recorded live tracks through my turntables.
    it was just a matter of layering the tracks, and then editing EQ and fades using automation

    as for my own tunes, you can get Real World for free at http://soundcloud.com/Alexi

    And the VIP of chemical ambience ain't ever going to reach the light of day, only used it for the human traffic sample

    nice one

    Cheers mate, was monitoring on headphones through the mixer, rather than what was going into the interface, and once I realised couldn't be assed to rerecord
