Osman - "Horology"

Author Comments

"Horology" is my newest track, born from an old project, originally titled "The Waiting Game." When I started it in March of 2017, I knew I wanted time to play an integral role in its production, but I never expected it to be so prominent. Production was slowed and subsequently stopped, after I found full-time employment and redirected my focus on developing a career.

How fitting that a track with time as a central concept has, ultimately, taken so long to make. In any event, it is finished now.

Horology features sharp, retro-sounding synthwave melodies, backed by a rubbery bass line and carried by a punchy Hip Hop beat. All of this is then accented by the mechanical ticks, tocks, and whirs of various clocks.

I have several yet-unreleased projects that will be coming to this page in the coming days, but as for Horology, I sincerely hope you dig it.

So this was rather unique and has a "NEW" and different sound on it, I do wish you sped up the tempo much faster from the start as it seemed like it needed a bigger kick start, but its a "UNIQUE" sound you have here, Wow this was very nice, it really kind of comes alive and very well done, clear and sharp good quality all the way around, thats what really stood out for me, Not on this one, and now as we end on this one, I like what you have done here it was interesting and if theres anything to make better about it I will suggest that just below, but for now I like the sound I am listening too.

I do wish you sped up the tempo much faster from the start as it seemed like it needed a bigger kick start

I just upped the BPM in my project file from 140 to 150, and I have to say, I much prefer the effect that slight increase has on the track's pacing. I will be updating this with a faster version in a little bit, once I go over it and see if there are other things that could use tweaking. I appreciate the feedback.

Great mastering!
