The two hour challenge

Can you complete a new track in two hours including uploading to SoundCloud without using any loops?  Dissatisfied with my music productivity of late, I set myself this challenge yesterday eveing - and yes I failed.  The track "Against the Clock" (see Tracks section) took me 2 hours and 15 minutes from start to upload on SoundCloud.  With absolutely no preparation it was a really interesting and intense experience as I had to make decisions quickly and move on.  In addition to using no loops I only used stock plugins in my DAW (Studio One) with the exception of Ozone for a final mastering polish.  The end product is so very far from perfect and listening now there is a lot that I want to change but for 2 hours 15 minutes I am quite happy.  It is not something I would want to do too often as I rather like to take my time over things but I will certainly want to see if I can break the two hour barrier.

I challenge you to take the challenge too and post your tracks.
