Beats, Breaks and Incidentals

Nice squarepusher esq jazz randomness intro. I definately don't call this ambient, more breaky acid electronica, but there's no category for that on this shitty site:)
Good use of filters and nice broken up vocal snippets help keep up the hectic feel of this trk.
The main beats/breaks really draw the trk together and give it focus while the incidentals do their thing. The trk progresses really well and builds into a nice head nodding tune whilst still maintaing its loose feel. I think the intro will be this tracks downfall on this site as the little kids wont listen past it to get to the main body/focus of the trk which is always a shame, but who gives a shit eh, this is another quality tune that is both interesting and accessible.
ps: I did slap a 5 on that other trk eventually:)
This gets my 5 too.
Good stuff man, shame about the fade out though.

Lol, are you dissin' NG!
They have bluegrass, but no breaks! Maybe it's time to buy a Jew's harp.
Thanks for the in-depth review, and my heart skipped a beat when you mentioned Squarepusher...aww..shucks..
You're on the money as usual with your observations, the intro WILL kill me. Probably objectively they are a bit too manic for any audience though.
Glad your dug the vocals, perhaps I should be looking to do more with them though. I wish I had your skill in handling them...
Well, all the best man, and thanks!

nice break

The start of this song is hella trippy :P
I really like the breaks on this one, imo this song would fit probably breakbeat more than trip-hop. Great song though, here's another download for ya :)

You should really tag your audio, name your songs something like DJ_padman-*name* or something like that

Thanks for the review dude! Sleep deprivation can give a guy some strange ideas. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what trip-hop is, so forgive me if I classify it incorrectly.
Thanks for the feedback, and damn, I always forget to name it! ;)
