Not just my top ten, this IS my #1! This one is hands down my most popular, most well-known, and most associated with me. Reaching nearly 35,000 listens and over 3,000 downloads, this track placed #2 for the week it was posted, #6 of the month, and has been heard all across the entire internet and across the world! It remains to this day, the best track in my collection of all time. I really felt like a faster tempo and double basses would really add to the tense feel that you could fall into acid at any time. Making the synths stand out was actually pretty easy once I got the groove going. A lot of the instruments used in this piece were homemade. I needed a synth for every tone. A couple background melodies, harmonies, and even a lower melody synth bass. Everything just kinda flowed after all pieces were in place. Learned to smooth a couple settings out, such as volume fade, and timing. I definitely went for more of a glowing, club mix feel with a slight taste of jazz. That’s exactly what I took from the original anyway with all their synths and melodies. And in the end, it turned out very successful. It was hard work, but it definitely paid off. I’m more than proud of this one.

Same. Wonderful memories, still a good play to this day! I've only fully complete it a few times too, it was a difficult one
