Well I've thrown the phrase 'chilled out' in there like it doesn't rock into a big tribal drums section at the end... it's chilled out by my standards OK? :LOL:

I wanted to work on something a little different and had the acapella sitting around in my samples folder for ages. Figured as there's a bazillion dance remixes out there, I'd do something a little bit more cinematic. And this is the result!

Was not sure how you'd handle the vocals here with the vibe, but I think you managed to handle it quite well! I'm really liking it. Something sounds off with the percussion "climax" though, will have to double-check on my headphones but I can't quite pinpoint what it is. I also wouldn't have minded if it was just chill out, without the drums.

Thought about sending it to Anjuna?

The drums were originally a bit more 'stomping' but I ended up toning them down a little (believe it or not)
I've posted it over on the Anjuna Discord (along with a few others) not thought of sending it direct though - I imagine they get bombarded with these bootlegs tbh 😄

The beatlesss part is really nice, and im not usually a fan of beatless trance. I like that its string dominant and not synth dominant. The percs don't work for me, not only the pattern but they sound pretty harsh on the ears. Would have much preferred if you created that climatic feeling instead with added synths
