funny, I'm sitting here listening to a Squarepusher track, and I'm pretty
sure he's using a bunch of Return to Forever samples. Or it could be from
one of Al DiMeola's albums. Time has blurred those together in my mind....
The agressive beat makes it a little cooler now, but not much.  ;-)

Squarepusher: is this track drum n' bass? 70's Jazz Fusion? both? neither?
Why would you go to so much trouble using drum n' bass techniques to make
something that sounds like Weather Report? Fusion - let it rest in
