My chosen shuffled track

Pendulum is an Australian electronic rock band. Founded in 2002 in Perth by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul Harding. Harding is a veteran DJ while Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen were part of an acclaimed rock band known as Xygen, but after hearing Konflict's "Messiah" at a rave they were inspired into the drum and bass genre, in 2003 they relocated to the United Kingdom.

Encoder" is similar to "The Tempest" from In Silico. It opens with a verse, chorus structure which then falls silent, leading into a build up riff with vocals over the top of it and ending with the sounds of slushing sea waves and the sound of a man breathing in sharply, which abruptly ends at the end of the track. It was written By Peredeur Ap Gwynedd, the band's Guitarist, as well as Rob Swire.

In a typical drum and base music video, you would expect fast pace editing, depending on the rythem of the song. The music video usually reflects the lyrics in this genre, but there are exceptions like always.
