Really nice, thoroughly enjoyed that. Definitely got the ol' head nodding there. Only slight negative criticism I have to make is that I felt like there could have been a little extra to the build up just before the drums kicked back in at 2:34 but that's not a big deal. Good job overall :tu:

Works very well...shades of Pendulum at times.

That particular D&B Kick / Snare pattern you have as the basis of your drum groove can be a bit cliched nowadays as it's been used so much, but with the more trance-oriented elements alongside it gets new life!

I would love to hear a vocal version...it was crying out for a soaring singer!

Aaaargh! I refuse to use the 'A' word! :0)

Having been involved in Jungle / D&B during the early to mid 1990s, it had started to become over-used even way back then...take into account that it's slow version was extensively used in early Hip Hop as well! :0)

The Winstons have a serious lot to answer for! :0)
