    Constructing a framework of inevitablity, percussion unfolds along seething strings. The paranoia brews as Dam Nation produces it's most haunted piece. We invite you to a most curious dance of postmodern jungle, violent and silken, laden with samples from the utter most depths of the RSA vinyl abbatoir.

    How's it going Gritsy? Long time ay?

    I'm loving the beatwork on this one. Reminds of Photek.Atmos is pretty thick also.

    Nice one chap.

    nice beatwork and sub indeed, but I think the snare is too empty, and the whole track is little distorted. It reminds me good old dnb ( 2000-2002 ). Much nice Future and psycho sounds in it ;)

    keep working


    peace, skeez

    The production is good, its not really my thing though - I do like the unpredictability of it... The beats are a bit scatty for my liking!

    i agree the bit after the breakdown is pretty much unintelligeble. my least favourite part of the tune, thank you for all the kind words so far lads.

    RAAS KLUUUUT FUKIN LIKE THIS ...yes there are a few things about teh mixdown, but this is some heavy chpidge ..would be up for a 320 of this...only thing..think of the dj, make it mix friendly so put some sort of measure in the intro such as a crash every 4 bars or a goat bleating if that is what they do. PEACE

    Loving the intro sounds so far man, nicely put together, sound very eerie too.
    Drum edits are good, think the beats could do with some clearing up tbh. Good switch up in the tune 2:30. Beats do seem a tad distorted too.

    Good idea in this tune though for sure!

    Some of those reece sounds are nice too man, feeling nthe fx around the tune!

    Good effort

    thnx Zeal. Actually, when started the mixdown on this tune I declared the beats unfixable since they sounded so crap, so actually am glad I still got them audible in a way.
