Pulling a total about-face to the previous track, THE OPPOSITION is a simple straight-forward track with a clear goal, produced in the first quarter of 2006.
As the name suggests, the track was intended to be some big rough "woah look out for the COMPETITORS...." deal. Basically just grab a bunch of stereotypical thugs with clubs and chains, and stick them in retail outfits worn by stringy teenage retail workers. That image was the entire inspiration for my teenage self to produce this track.
And, yeah. The Daft Punk influence (Human After All era) is apparent throughout this, in a rough, immature, and not-quite-refined form.
EDITING WISE, this track was an outright pain in the ass. After mixing everything on the track, it was painfully clear that the sample suffered from inconsistent timing all the way through — as you'd expect from a recorded rock song. So the sample went through a lot of cutting up and retiming, in order to get every little hit on beat with the rest of the track.
