Superior Tech

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Superior Tech

No! That's not a typo -- this is the title track of the mixtape. Why? Because this beat is near and dear to my heart.

It's got a wild funky synth sample with pounding energy, and that's great. But the drums... the drums are killer! Yeah, okay, they're my drums and I'm a bit partial, but they're killer nonetheless!

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Silver Centurion

This is one of my most mellow productions. It's heavily influenced by the sound of Le Knight Club and the sampling style of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (of Daft Punk fame).

Personally, my favorite part of the song is what I call -- for lack of a better phrase -- the "trips," or rather the moments when the beat does little skips at the end of a phrase.

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Showdown

I love this beat. The whistle, the build, the mix of diverse sounds.

In terms of musical memory recall, I'll always remember when I made it because the drums on this track were heavily inspired by Big Boi's "I Like the Way (You Move)."
