    So there are two very similar sounding songs from the mid-jungle era–––at least I think they're distinct–––known as "Super Sharp Shooter", one by DJ Zinc, one by Ganja Kru. They were released the same year (1995). Are DJ Zinc and Ganja Kru related acts or something? The songs are essentially the same concept, just with different layouts; so I gotta imagine that there's one that came first if Zinc and Ganja Kru are separate.

    Zinc fucked the chicken and recorded its screams of ecstasy. This was the basis for the bassline to Super Sharp Shooter.

    His screams.

    The drums are made from the chickens frantic attempts of getting away.

    The intro synth is actually a graph of the chickens brainwaves, replicated in an additive synth. As you can see, or hear, the chicken was experiencing thoughts of repentance and planning imminent retribution.
