With everything going on I wasn't going to make any music this week, my father-in-law passed away from a heart attack this week, had to shutdown my business, layoff all my employees.  I decided to try something to get my mind off the endless news of covid-19.  This is what came out, sorry it is so dark when we need light at this time.  I know some of you are in places hard hit by this virus, stay healthy, stay safe, we will get through this.  Peace and Love.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear about this.  Wow.  My sincerest condolences to you and your family.  And on top of that your business.  This is such a rough time, I'm so sorry.  I don't know what else to say.

Wish I could offer more than thoughts and prayers over the internet, but I hope you know that the WB family and I are thinking of you.  Good to see you using music as a healthy and productive way to deal with the feelings and emotions.  That's why we make music.  To help each other.

Thanks again for your thoughts and positivity, music or painting/sculpting/exercise/ect... what ever it is we all need some form of outlet to channel our emotions and balance our mind during these difficult times.  I’m in a tough situation, but I’m healthy and my family is healthy, so we will make it out of this.

WOW
Thank you for sharing such a nice track despite everything going on. Sorry for your loss and hoping for the best for you, your family, and your employees.
Don't apologize for the darkness, expressing ourselves is what this is all about. sometimes that means creating a picture, but sometimes it's putting up a mirror.

So sorry for your loss I hope things start to get better for you soon.  Music is def an outlet for times like these.  Letting out those dark feelings is a necessity and helps with the healing process.  Love the sound of that dark bassline pulsing throughout with those lil percussive explosions.  The synth towards the end makes it even more dark and mysterious.  Well done and stay safe!
