'Puppet Master' - Filthy, dirty techno

Caustic Song file (optional): 

First new track for a while. Filthy, dirty techno.

Relentless and menacing. Will steal your wallet if not watched carefully.

I'll probably go back and record some automation to freshen it up but the first cut has turned out pretty well (imo)

He he, thank you both.

He he, thank you both.

It came together really quickly but still feels like one of my more fully realised tracks.

Thuggish but sophisticated wink

great track! where is the art

great track! where is the art from? It's a different style to be sure but reminds me of Andy Bones' dark humor. Gotta download the file to see how you did some of this. devil

I googled 'Puppet Master' and

I googled 'Puppet Master' and it was on the first 2 or 3 pages of images. I always feel a little guilty as I've no right to the images I use indecision 

The track is really simple - just a lot of FX and a couple of Arp'ing Modulars making it sound more intricately constructed. Almost no automation other than some simple fades.

I used the Multi Filter Insert FX to help some of the machines to cut through the mix. I also used Skarabee's excellent Modular Exciter on the FM Synth. I tend to use it on almost every track these days.
