    Is the beat lifted from 'So much trouble on my mind'?

    @FunkFerret: Wasn't it used on the Out of Sight soundtrack? IIRC, Geoff Barrow from Portishead had a fall out with David Holmes over this film... Dave asked Geoff what tracks he would use in a film, then completely ripped off his list for the OST. Following this incident my local 2nd hand recordshop in Bristol ("Prime Cuts", where Geoff used to visit) had 'c*nt' scrawled all over the David Holmes records :D

    Thanks for the feedback Funk Ferret! It means a lot coming from you ;)

    RE: The Shaker Timing - that bar is from the original track and unedited, hence the swing. Only the cut up beat sections are set to 88BPM, the rest are bars lifted from the original (which wobbles between 85 and 88) and looped. I wanted to keep the sound raw, so I haven't time stretched or edited the original section at all. Therefore, the outro break is set to 88, but the intro isn't. In fact, the intro acts as a guide to what the rest of the track was built with... (well that's my excuse for just being lazy - I could do something about it I guess)

    RE: Volume - the track hasn't been properly mixed or mastered yet, but I agree that the volume needs to be cut just a little in that loop.

    Apart from that, feedback taken and appreciated mate ;)
