Wonderful. The percussion has a ton of air on it, it sounds quite distant but also very snappy at the same time. It works very nicely with the plucky sins to get that rain effect. Very nicely done indeed.

Very detailed!  And very smooth too.  Totally works as a rainy day track.

Very nice brooding atmosphere backing that tight lead.

I love this, the intro has such great atmosphere and then it keeps building... really great drums as usual!

Great sounds and placement. Love that plodding bass synth and the squelchy synths floating above. Great vibe. Drum patterns are really cool.  Sweet melodies and leads.  Are you a fan of the Russian movie Solaris?

I am! I need to read the book too, especially since Stanisław Lem hated all of the movie adaptations.

The original Russian film is really trippy.  Need to watch it again.  Really classic sci fi.  I may check it out the book as well.  Need something new to read.

These synths are just perfect, I love the arrangement! Nailed it heart

all the noise hits are brilliant. Wonderful melody too. Whole song feels a tad drenched in verb which pretty well works out as the harder hits cut through the fog.

Not exactly the same movie, but a beautiful Tarkowsky shot...

And amazing IDM drumming, btw. This goes to the "listen very carefully" playlist, in order to steal some drum tricks wink
