Glad you're enjoying it.

This was part of a weekly live streaming radio broadcast which usually features DJ's, MC's, producers, and occasionally some live musicians.

Spukkin goes light on the bass drum, I noticed, that's part of his sound, lots of complex percussion and drums and not a heavy kick. That makes it easy to do the kind of "winsheild wipers" polyrhythms I like to do (i.e. playing basslines and/or melodies in 5/4 or 6/4 over a 4/4 loops), though I'm pretty sure I kept it straight 4/4for most of this show.
