168 bpm, lush strings, jazzy fun drum 'n' bass with a couple of deep-beat breakdowns.
This is my entry for the contest (even though, of course, I'm not eligible for any of the prizes. :) Seeing everyone upload this music has been inspiring for me, so I wanted to polish up one of my works in progress for you all to hear.
Thanks to all of you who are participating in this contest, and generously sharing your original music with all of us.

Yep, that done the job.
That track is really growing on me you know. It's full of character and catchy melodies. If pushed to criticise, i would say the snare could be a tiny bit louder still (sorry). I guess you can't please all the people all the time. Sounds nicer every time i hear it though.
Your other tracks are pretty cool too. Good luck with that comp.
The strings are really cool. I like the bass too! Overall, a great song.
One crit though, I'd say at 0:23 where that squelchy synth comes in, you should have panned it going from left to right I think rather than just having it playing in the right speaker. But, it's cool, I downloaded it to my HD ;).
Btw, I thought I'd sign up for the diesel contest too! You never know unless you try I guess :P. Cheers for announcing that contest Canton and good luck with it too ;). _________________ Getting back into fruity loops again. I prefer to create music that is intense and dramatic. I'm also working on other styles.

Awesome track. I especially enjoyed the intro with the strings and the beeps. I absolutely love Atmospheric drum&bass and I don't know if you were aiming for that genre, but I think it's soothing and relaxing. The drums aren't too powerful which for me, makes it a perfect rendition to this laid back tune. It just has a nice flow.
