Think of this as an experiment to see how far a MIDI drum sequence can be scaled. You are probably right, this has gone past the point of being musical into being quasi-musical noise. Lucky for you, the sequence is available at 5 slower tempos. Also any sequencer can slow this right down to a rate that would most likely please you. Having done it once, you won't have to worry that I'll want to do this again.

I do think it still retains some of the bembe character even at this brutal, inhuman tempo.
