Description
It's been quite a while since you last heard of me, I know, and you can thank - or blame it on entirely - my electrofriend Bob (Five_extra_arms) if I'm back.
This was originally a tune by an iComposition artist called Feenixx, which I received from him some six months ago, and have been slowly working on since.
Since the guy has been missing from over there for quite a long time now, I posted the tune as a friendly tribute to him, and a way to share the memory with many others who used to know him.
So, with his permission, here's the tune for you, as well, hoping you have fun.

Push Start Me Over The Edge
Very frustrating to hear that thing struggle with getting going, but you eventually kick it in. Very original treatment. I love the de-tuning of some of the instruments. It goes from sounding Hawaiian to some kind of a carnival ride where the kids are screaming, "Go faster!!" Your cartoon reference is accurate.

This is rich in textures and mad sounds and rhythms.

I really enjoyed it. So much in fact, I've downloaded it.

here's a littel more
about how it's been done originally by the real creator:
'I made all the sounds
from recordings of the engine, horn and door slamming of a 1991
Mercedes. I used the free Audacity audio editing program to create all
the car horn notes, and the EXS 24 sampler in Logic to play the tune'
I added a few keys, drums, and various samples taken from the original
