Love it when those drums come in. Always really like your bass lines, too.

Strong Klaus Doldinger vibes here, especially the intro. The bass along with that melody is so tasty, I like how the melody is melancholic yet somehow cheerful. Nice track!

I feel like i am using these drums too much now, but they fit well with a lot of music.

I need to listen to them, i dont know who they are. Yes it is a bit 'nostalgic'; kind of melancholy. Relistening it maybe needs less reverb.

Detuning the tracks always makes me happy. Well done.

I never thought of this as happy but I guess it is

Very cool track. The detuning and reverb drums are nostalgic. I dig.

I think I put too much reverb on the song, but thank you.

It begins! This has awesome mood and atmosphere. Wasn't sure drums would drop in, satisfying when they do. Great synth work. Detuning is so fun.

Thank you, I enjoyed your anarchic take this week. I'm addicted to detune btw

Cool vibe here.  Some cool warble tones and I like how the bass line ducks away at times.

Yeah that was just a step volume change on kick snare hits to get a "ducking" sound

I've been experimenting with more downtempo and I think it is coming out well

Always cool when there's alternate ways to do things.  Potentially more control that way too.

Oooh this has a nice trip hop feel to it.  The drums took me back to some Portishead vibes.  The synths (especially the bass) take it in an interesting different direction.
