I was listening to a lot of Mo’Wax and Ninja Tune material during this period so this is a reflection of that. This song was a struggle to complete. It was only the discovery of a couple of interesting samples and a complete accident on my part that made it whole. There was a piano line in here and I futzed around with the envelope on it so now instead of a piano, it sounds like bowed strings. The snare drum/clap is actually a vocal choir saying Cha! that I downloaded from somewhere.
