Hi all, I hope you all are doing well!

I've finally managed to get some inspiration again and I have done this little instrumental... it is a kind of lo-fi chill/jazz with a hint of reggae (I think). smile

Will,
You could have added Oriental Mystique to your description... and a few other tags as this moves effortlessly between genres
The synth CloudRap organ coming in is a sweet surprise, and everything as always, sounds
polished and still natural.
Enjoyed!

Robert

Yes, a nice oriental touch, especially during the intro. You have crafted a masterpiece by intermixing different instruments that I would have never thought would sound so good together. Your mix is super.

Interesting! The drums sound a more like Middle Eastern percussion than a standard drum kit, which fits the rest of the song.

Very cool! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Really well done - the mix is fantastic, and the koto realtrack fit perfectly in the mix. It flows tremendously wewll and make for a 'cerebral' listen, if you will. I wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing!

Love how you started out with such a bare, simple mix to state your motif—that is doing the most with very little. The slow,slow tempo gives the bossa bass a completely unique feel. And that trumpet solo—sounds great!

Very well put together, Will. Love the trumpet. A great listen.
BTW, this is the second song I've listened to on the showcase this morning featuring the Koto!

Leon

wow, I like this a lot, and it left me at a loss for words, so I'm going to simply echo everything that has been said so far.

So very interesting, a song like that would never occur to me in a million years.

Hi Will,

What a coincidence we both used a Koto in our songs!
You made nice use of it too, although the performance was a little short.
Probabely that is because so much more happens in your song! I liked how you did that.
All those instruments together are working out marvelous, to my humble opinion.
But what I liked the most though, is that tension of the rhythm section.
I think that glued everything together in a very attractive way

A nice peace of work,
Hans

Hi Will,

finally! Finally you're back - I've been missing your very maverick productions.

And this one is another typical example of your creativity - kept my attention from the get-go to the last note. VERY enjoyable!

Take care and stay safe,

Stefan

It really came together when the synth kicked in...propelled the song and filled the left channel.
Nice.

Will,

A wonderful musical experience! An outstanding "mix of genres".

Keeps the ear engaged throughout. An excellent mix - each instrument is clear and crisp and has its own space.

very much enjoyed.

Superb solo trumpet.
