Description
This is a remake of a song I posted two years ago, called 'Supertooth'. It's still about the swarms of robot-like, exoskeleton-clad creatures that rule the Earth. But, besides the huge spiders, we now have ants, grasshoppers, wasps, centipedes, moths, cockroaches, bees, and beetles. Dragonflies, mosquitoes, gnats and damselflies. And even lobsters, weevils, shrimp, millipedes and pillbugs. It's a teeming, writhing mass of legs and antennae, chitin and goo. Enjoy.

edgy
but i think thats were you were going. Super sharp, and captures the writhing aspect perfectly. huge soundtrack for a starship trooper sequence. Great job

Its the giant mosquitos that would do me in.

giant mosquitos
The giant horseflies are no fun either. I'm picturing a Klendathu battle with the bugs now, and I think you're right... this would go! Thanks for checking this out, John.

familiar, yet more fantastic
I recognized this right away! But I don't remember the gee-whiz bang new things you have added. The way you keep bringing the hook back makes for a nice structure, but it's those micro multi-tweaked noisy breaks that flutter my butter.

Man, I'm glad you like those noisy breaks, thanks. Sometimes I wonder if it's only my butter being fluttered by that stuff, lol. Thanks for coming by here, Eric, nice to see you.

Yikes!
This tune puts me in mind of those nasty "Replicators" from the Stargate SG-1 series,

---or a deleted scene from the King Kong movie. Everyone wakes up in that deep ravine, only to find themselves surrounded by giant bugs. Suddenly, the bugs line up like chorus girls and start bustin some moves!

Bizarre concept professionally executed David!

Be well friend!

I think that scene in King Kong is one of my favorite scenes ever! Even before they line up like chorus girls, lol. Those are some of the greatest arthropods ever seen (regardless of fake-ness). Thanks for giving this a listen, Mike!

Very cool
I like the swelling groove and great effects. This would make an excellent movie track. Lots of great stuff going on in this track.

Drew
I like those documentaries that take you up close and personal with bugs (or any bizarre creatures, for that matter). As a movie track, I think this would go well with footage from those... you know, bees in the hive, piles of ants, wasps on the prowl, locust swarms. Actually, that gives me an idea, thanks! Glad you like this, Drew. We have to make a new tune some time.

Thanks, I like that comparison--Fluke kicks ass. After my last mix, I had to get back to making something overly hectic, haha. Thanks for listening, K.

Nightmare ..
.. of the "my worst" variety - don't like bugs much :)

Sounds really good David - make mine crispy fried cockroach clusters on toast.

Amazing clarity and beats - a real listening experience on the phones.

Okay I hate spiders - but this is pretty darn cool. Great percussion and beats as always. Very creative use of different sounds and textures - sounds very very good. Don't know how you manage to make me feel like the floor and walls are shaking with the stomping and yet it didn't blow my headphones out! Brilliant mixing and production on this. Loved it!

Good progression
