Find Candace is a 2003 breakcore EP by Venetian Snares. The EP was considered a continuation of his previously released album Doll Doll Doll, from which both the original "Befriend A Childkiller" and "Dolleater" were taken.

The heavily altered dancehall sample used in "Befriend a Childkiller Remix" is taken from the Buju Banton track "Sensimillia Persecution", released by Penthouse Vintage in 1995 (originally over the "Swing Easy" rhythm).

"Mercy Funk" contains a sample from the Andrzej Żuławski film "Possession".

"Children's Limbo" contains samples from the Alejandro Amenábar film The Others and an ending a cappella from Crystal Lullaby by The Carpenters.

The title track contains samples from The Evil Dead.

Time signatures[edit]

"Mercy Funk" has probably more time signature changes than any other Venetian Snares' song. Running at a high speed 180 bpm, it starts with 8 bars of 11/4 then switches to alternating bars of 5/4 and 13/8 (or 23/8 together) until 2'32". It then holds 5/4 until 3'50", where a single 7/4 bar is followed by 7 bars of the 23/8 plus one 19/8 bar. At 4'23" there follows a sequence of 16 bars of 13/8, 8 bars of 7/4, a cycle of 3 bars of 7/4 and a bar of 15/8 (or 57/8 together), repeated twice, then 7/4 until the end.

"Yor" and "Bind Candace" have no clear time signature due to their predominantly ambient nature. The remaining tracks are in 7/4, although the end section of the title track is in 7/8.
