Not so sure about the drums in this one.

I liked it, the drums could have taken a different turn or a different level of attention, but it had a nice driving, yet meditative feel, which is what I think you were going for.  It was nice that they felt more like "percussion" than "drums" if that makes sense.

Sonically, it sounded like a group of people in a drum circle, watching the Northern Lights.  The attention is on the Northern Lights and the drums signify everyone in unison and in awe.

Yeah the drum circle vibe (or rather hypnotic kraut rock vibe) is what I was going for, but this being a Volca Sample, there is not enough dynamics and soul in it, even though I did try to add some flangers.

Anyways, glad you liked it. smile
