You're walking along the streets of a busy city, it's raining and the atmosphere is stressful. You see a familiar building and you walk in. The building could be your home, a lounge, a church, or some special place of contemplation. You sit down, tune out everything else and meditate for a few minutes.

I wanted to capture that part relaxing, part trippy and part funky mood, so I made sure I had a nice and compact dose of song that isn't too long or lingering. Partly inspired by Röyksopp.

The rhythm in the intro might be a bit confusing at first but you'll get it after a listen or two :)

Get your headphones or woofer on, the baseline is lovely and the kick gives a nice physical thump on decent speakers.

great rendition in the intro. definitely sets up the tone of the song which is an enforcement of the theme. wish i had better headphones now :\

Absolutely brilliant!

I knew I didn't have to worry about you making a boring track for this round. Yet again you haven't ceased to amaze me. As usual, you've got that progressive ambient feel down perfectly. I'm struggling to find some criticism to say about this. I mean, I'm tempted to learn how to mediate, JUST to mediate to this song!

What struck me the most was how relaxing and laid-back this is. Easily something I'd hear in a lounge of some sort. The rhythms that are introduced later in the song were really cool and catchy, and the melodies were all excellent. While I'm not such a fan of the effect you did at the beginning and end, I suppose it fits well with your description in the Author's Comments, so I can't complain. The song was also very well-structured, the background pads were perfect for this submission and the drums were all great, and they had a wonderfully progressive beat.

Now, unlike last time, thankfully I do have some criticism to say about this song. That would have to do with the really lengthy ambient intro. Sure, the ambient effects were awesome and they did remind me somewhat of meditation, but I only felt like the song actually started at 1:20. By 1:32 I started to get into the song, and then I felt that it ended too early because of the slow ambient intro taking over a large chunk of the song. The way I see it, the first minute and a half pass really slowly since the pads drag on so much, and then the remainder passed very quickly, leaving a pretty unsatisfying ending. I think you should lengthen the part from 1:18 onwards, start the part at 1:18 earlier in the song or add some more elements to the intro. Yeah, I know you were going for a trippy and relaxing feel at the beginning, but the intro took almost half the song and nearly felt like a completely different song, in my opinion :(. The transition from the ambient intro to the rest of the song was extraordinarily well done though.

Hah, looks like I had more to say than I expected. Ah well, other than the intro which didn't really stick out to me, this song is amazing and I loved it. You are now one rank upwards in my favourite artists list :D.

i like the overall serene atmosphere that you never fail to provide.This would work great in some bodywash/cologne/teethwhitener/breath mint commercial where some dude applies the "secret pherome" effect in the elevator before he approaches the cute girl next door. i give it a 9/10 because it is a little bit sparse in the instrumentation department, and because it could use a little more melodic or synthy substance...but what do I know. The quality is top notch, pristine clean EQing and great stereo on the pads and ornamental background synths. The bass and kick have great physical chemistry, like their sexually intimate. Are the guitar licks played by you or sampled or a mixture of both?
