Gens Amplexi

Some warped 1980's feels mixed with God knows what - almost like some odd Miami Vice out-take where Crocket and Tubbs take some very questionable acid and end up in an Everglades swamp in which all the gators have the ability to talk much like some Terry Gilliam driven nightmare. Slight nod to Tangerine Dreams 'Love on a Real Train' by pure accident.

Initial source samples generated at work using Chiptone online, and warped into this odd shape via Ableton using a bad bass patch on the Wavestation, and Korg arps

warped 1980's feels. Miami Vice. Terry Gilliam. Tangerine Dream.

I love all of these things.

really dope track tho, the build, the timbre, the contrasting 4/4 + triplet pulse, the atmosphere it creates: all golden heart

Absolutely digging this shizzang, sir!
Lovely rhythmic and harmonic interactions and all so nonchalantly understated.

And that bit when the bass kicks in and the rest of the track starts to panic slightly. A delicious cocktail of endorphin and adrenaline.

seriously it feels like you pick the gif first and then compose the track.

great work!

Whatever you're doing, it works! Highly trippy materials. The ending leaves your head spinning, which is so cool
