G'day g'day NG,

I was jamming on piano the other week, over at a friend's place while he laid down some epic beats on his drum kit, and I came up with the melody in the bridge of the song there. Since it was a half-tempo beat, I wanted the rest of the song to have a chill yet driving feel to it to compliment the bridge.

So, of course, I picked Trance! :D I haven't done any Trance in a while so this was a real pleasure to do again. I used the same drum samples from the bridge's beat for the rest of the tune and it gave it a nice punchy quality that my beats don't normally have. Although, I did overlay some nice cymbals to help give emphasis to the builds.

Melodically, the entire song is 3 chords. :D I used a fair amount of inversions, strewn throughout the melodies and synths, along with filter & modulation automations to help keep things interesting. I went for a funky kinda bass groove instead of the basic 4/4 because I like to bop. What can I say, I like having low frequencies that sway me.

The title is Seasons because the song feels like Spring when it starts and slowly evolves into Summer then Fall and Winter. I'll let y'all decide which parts are which since it can be open to interpretation! :D Everything was created entirely in Propellerhead Reason 6.

As usual, please rate / review / enjoy!


Wow....This makes me feel calm....Its a great song that makes you feel good.

durn responds:

:) Thanks warrior. The song was definitely made with those intentions so I'm happy to hear you feel that way.

It really is a shame,

How someone with such talent could go so unnoticed. I really hope you get some serious recognition and your skill put to some very good use.

Love many of your songs,


durn responds:

Thanks a lot for the very kind words, IMS. It's remarks like that that help motivate me to start doing more than just make music; I need to start -performing- & promoting myself in the real world as well. :) Thanks again, man.

I was a fool to ignore you

But once i listened to this song, its now a drug. a damn good one too

durn responds:

I pity the fool who ignores durn! Thanks for coming back to me! :D

Very Nice!

I like the theme. The long snare is a bit loud maybe too much.
Overal i like the laid back feel of this trancy song.
It's Trance but it's different.

I have been making music the last couple of weeks after some career changes.
And i Have been posting again ;)
Nice to see new stuff from you!

durn responds:

Agreed. After getting away from the track for a while and re-listening the snare's definitely a little too loud in the highs. Thanks for your input, dude. :)
