First wintertune of the year heart
I tried out a new drum pattern here, inspired my one of my heroes; polish dnb producer Kubix.
I only decided to take this challenge today so it was pretty mad trying to finish this tune in time.
Looking forward to the rest of the year!

New Technique: I found the "mallet bounce" option in Pianoteq 6, which creates very short delays on a piano note for a lovely delicate effect. I used this as an additional texture in the intro.

this sounds like the promise of a hearth while ice skating on ice made by nature. and maybe a good hearty soup. love the breakbeats. some good stuff on the transitions. 10/10 would listen again!

Super pretty. I am not a DnB head, but this treats me very well.

Thanks for the Pianoteq tip. Also, wonderful and really powerful D'n'B sound. This is your first posted track on WB but I came here from week 22, so it's kind of a time travel playlist for me. Your year would be amazing, I promise that smile
