Granted, it does sag a bit near the end.. something I'm gonna look at, but it'll still remain a long track.
Most of my tracks are.. if you're a person that skips through everything looking for that instant grat moment, you're not gonna find it with me.
1st off, loving the remix/refix! Feel like it creates the journey that warrants the 8 minutes, which is now 6! Great use of wash outs for transitions. Your counter melodies and glitch drms/ Fx choices make me groove! Solid fun lead! Stereo placement so far sounds on point.
My favorite long-play record would be Boredoms - 77 Boadrum. That record goes on for like 54 minutes. They have other long play records as well. Into tons of other long play type records, and full albums as well. Art Ensemble of Chicago, John ZOrn, and I even listened to some early John Cage recording which were like 12 minutes of just noise.
Think when I first checked out your tune, it was in a rush, and yes I skipped through quickly as 1st 8 seconds didn't grab my attention right away, and i was busy at the time, but still really wanted to cheek out something new in that moment! I apologize if my questions came off in a offensive way.
Any chance we can hear another version with the intro broke down a little more simple? Maybe something like kick on 1 & 3 only, pads ducked a little further with some sortta filter or gain staged up and down db's up till that smooth lead comes in.. then begin the full journey?
Also the vocal at 3:33 maybe push it a little further left?
Thanks for sharing again!
