No on both, the timbre of the vocals would not the way it is if it was originally Karl, and the process wouldn't cause this kind of distortion.

I'm not sure what's causing it though... might be intentional, a sample-rate error (which sounds similar but not quite like this), artifacts from a very bad 2006 timestretching algo (does sound like the vocals were slowed down without pitch changing), or maybe an audio rendering error, baked into the master or from trying to render a 13 year old project file.

yea - weird!

I redownloaded from the original link - and I don't hear the distortion at 4:43

As WhiteNoise mentioned... I don't think it was something wrong with the original mp3 itself, but maybe it was some issue with rendering (b/c the distortion was specifically on the vocal, and it didn't seem to effect the other elements)

Re: Biro The Leggy (Romford Dub)
yeah when I streamed it yesterday there was definitely something wrong with it though I didn't know if it was the file or lag on either side.

Re: Biro The Leggy (Romford Dub)
Definitely fixed on the d/l this morning.

So...who’s the girl? Biro has always been an interesting take on Beautiful Burnout (or vice versa), but the vocals make this take pretty special.

I would LOVE to hear a massive remix/mash-up of this & Beautiful Burnout.

Re: Biro The Leggy (Romford Dub)
Some re-mixing shenanigans happened overnight as the new file shows a different spectrogram with what appears to be "softened" vocal parts:

Yesterday's version:


Today's version:


Nice to see they noticed the feedback and released a fixed version

I'll take up the mashup challenge if I can find some time. It won't be fancy!
