Ricardo Villalobos is known for his lengthy 14+ minute mind melting tracks in the techno world but he has this worldly draw I think when it comes down to rhythm & choice of sounds. Get to the 2:30 min mark and let it ride out, you’ll definitely hear why he goes for soo long. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
It’s Shari Vari by A Number of Names, hopefully this song doesn’t need an introduction.
I follow Ras G on twitter, the dubstep artist that is one of the more hardcore dubstep supporters out there that has the pure passion for the music.
If you know me or if you’ve ever walked into my room you’ll know i’m a huge Police/Sting fan. Lately i’ve been working on edits but mostly of songs by The Police. The more I listen to their whole catalog the more I find small glimpses in songs that have perfect loops in them especially in this song Invisible Sun.

:-) while you are re-editing the Police songs,
can you make a more “dancefloor/dj” friendly version of “bring on the night”
:-) love that song but the intro makes it very hard to put in a mix
it’s not a matter of beats matching etc.. it’s the way the intro starts
btw most over looked police track to play out is Masoko Tanga

I love Sting / Police too, and am really looking forward to hearing your efforts in remixing and playing with some of his work. I love it when people tweak great work to make it more market and audience relevant. It works for me, and I admire the artists that do such awesome things with classic work.
