Make a song, 64 bars in length @ 128 bpm.

Tag on an 8 bar intro and outro to facilitate the mix, which this time will be done by Andy Smoke aka dj twit

This intro should not form part of the main tune because that would be CHEATING yo! .. so make it simple percussion .. just something that will help make the mix super smooth
