Ahoy hoy! Been a while. :)

I've been pretty damn busy with work lately but have been focusing on this little piece in my downtime. It's probably my most pop-like sounding tune to date though still stickin' with the housey groove. :) Very relaxed yet upbeat mood.

Although, and I know I prolly say this a lot, I tried something -very- different for the bridge/breakdown. Not even gonna hint at it here cause I want it to surprise y'all. :d Some of you might hate it though I'm hoping most will love it. :) Definitely straying from my normal trance-styled bridge.

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

If anybody here thinks this music belongs in Super Mario Galaxy 3, that would be me.

You know...

this song gives me a calming feeling. I was feeling pissed by some people earlier, and hearing it on facebook didn't help, but now I feel much better! However the shift in the music made me a little mad a again. I give it an 8 due to the shift, and not a full 10 because; well I felt a bit angry again, (biased mood, nothing personal)

durn responds:

lol, yeah, the tune was meant to be a bit of a journey. a lil bit of Give or Take, ya feel me? :) Thanks for the honest review, Elpueyoloco!

Very Groovy!

The bridge really blew me away! The tone added something sinister to the overall mellow groove of the jam and made me rethink the storyline of this work. Thank you for an excellent piece of music :)

durn responds:

Thank you for an excellent review, dirty! :) Hadn't really approached a tune in this manner before, I should prolly play around with breakbeats a little more. Used to use them all the time but have stuck to a 4/4 for the past year or two. Time to change it up, eh. :D

It is awesome.

It would be perfect for the next Power Fox game... Somehow...

durn responds:

Haha, Wiesi tends to make his own music, methinks. :) Would be pretty darn neat if he asks though! Thanks for the review, Cody.

BTW, Just released a new tune! Everyone please go to my audio page and have a listen to Infinity! :D

Good one again Durn...

Congratz on getting this on the front page. This song derserves it...no...YOU deserve it.

durn responds:

Aw shucks, ya dun made me blush, max. Haha, thanks for the high praise. :)
