    Well, I woke up one morning with an idea in my head. Take one part Twin Peaks, one part Dougal and The Blue Cat and one part Drum and Bass, this track was the result. Then I bought myself some lovely new monitors and remixed it, so please let me know if you notice any improvement in sound quality over my other efforts.

    Is that an oboe in the intro? Very nice - vocal is two loud and can hear the vinyl crackle which would be okay if it were a bit quieter. Great groove to the bass and drums when they kick in. Vocal and insect? samples work very well once track kicks in. The programming leading up to the first drop is tight and the big bass adds a ton to this track. I'm lovingthe drop out in the middle of this - great samples, awesome tripped out feel and a seemless reentry of the big bass. A few of the added snares are panned a bit too hard left and the bass could come up even more. This is a sweet track :gaywhite: with a dark edge :slayer: , love whats going on just as it fades out - my only criticism is with a few levels but I realize you're still feeling out the new monitors (what kind?)

    Thank's for the positive feedback! You're right about the level of the intro spoken word part and I will take into account your other recommendations. The intro sound is actually a Saxophone sample from "The Bookhouse Boys", part of the Twin Peaks soundtrack. I made a loop, reversed it and mixed it back with the original to get a seamless sound which I then filtered whilst playing with the keyboard. Phew! My new monitors are Mackie 624's which are really helping me control the bottom end and general levels in my mixes. Laurie Laptop
