Here's a new one for y'all. Spent a fair bit of time on this one because I tried something new. The bridge is off-key. Let me be the first to say it. :D Throwin' out the rulebook here, people! XP

The melody's don't actually synch up harmonically but I was playing around and I liked how they seemed to flow regardless of tha fact. After some heavy automation, of course. :d

Anyways, made using solely Reason 4.0 and my midi keyboard. Used a buncha preset synths and rex loops, so sue me, though a few of the synths are from scratch. :)

As usual, please rate/review/enjoy! :)

[EDIT] A fellow Newgrounds user, IIPhase, has been kind enough to master the track for me for a higher-quality, less muddied sound. However, since I had distortion on my bassline it stands out a bit too much. :/ That's my fault, though, he was simply bringing out the elements as I had them in the track. :) You can download the mastered version here...

the sunrise in Toronto must be REALLY beautiful if it gave you the inspiration it gave you. Just hope that my head doesn't explode from it's beauty and epicness if I ever visit Toronto and see it. Anyways, the beats in this piece were interesting, refreshing, and just plain great. Good work man.

durn responds:

lol, thanks dude. :) To be honest, from my new place I get a great view of the sunset now. I made that song when I was still living in the west end and had to walk east into the sunrise every morning. :) Plus the song just reminded me of the kinda trance that'd be played at like 5-6am at an all-night rave when people're starting to unwind/go home. :)

Never heard anything entirely like it..

And its awesome. The mix of the guitars and the synth was perfect. i love the guitar break at 1:07. The only thing you could do to make it better is to make the beat a bit stronger. The title doesn't fit the song very well. The song had more of a racing feel to it rather than a sunrise.

I'm gonna have to download this one.

durn responds:

would it shock you to find out the guitar sound is actually just a heavily distorted clavinet?! :D I f'in love the clavinet, such a versatile sound. ranges from bass & organ to guitar & keyboard. :)

thanks for the kind words, man. :)

Keep on making good music!

Inspiration is a hard thing to get, it will come to you when you never expect it... I honestly hope there will always be inspiration in your life to keep on making great music like this! I uploaded all your best tracks into my cellphone, so whenever I'm under stress, I can find something soothing and encouraging to keep on going not giving up...
