This is the 6th track on the Meta Dance Classic LP. A previous version of the song had the same beats (Vermona drum synth -- the "bass" is a tuned tom) and 303-ish Doepfer module. In this version the original oil-drum percussion (Reaktor Steampipe) was changed to a sort of robotic bouzouki that is carrying most of the melody. I ended up having to do a few scale and/or mode shifts to make the repetition of notes less obvious, and this got more interesting as I went along. After the notes were all in place I sped up the track by 16%, making the plucking more "dexterous."
