I decided to focus on sonic details with this instrumental. I built everything step by step, and focused on experimenting with different tools and parameters that I hadn't previously modified. As the sequencing came together, I revisited these details, filtering or switching drum sounds, equalizing separate drum tracks, and modifying synths.

It was difficult to create a structure, since I had been focusing on individual sonic elements rather than the overall composition. I only had a few painstakingly crafted loops, and I didn't have a predetermined song form in mind. I think it would have been much easier to block out if I had had some basic lyrics in mind during construction. I will revisit the structure if I come up with some lyrics.

    This sounds really excellent and if you don't write some lyrics for it then I'm going to have to do it. I fear the consequences of my flow, though.

    This is really great. The mix is crystal clear and the cadence is a oblique. It is nice. I too fear the far reaching ramifications of erf's flow. But those I'm willing to make allowances for their eventuality.

    This is awesome! This beat is so hot. I'm loving it, seriously, awesome sample, excellent drums, good bass. It definitely makes me want to spit hot lava knowledge science all over it!
