Here is a new (or old however you view it) production of mine. @Hensmon got my inspired regarding piano stuff in trance tracks. There is a very light piano playing in the background completely improvised without quantization. This is more an experimental track then a "super solid" and perfect production. Some harmonics are not fitting perfectly but sometimes I like imperfect, not too overproduced stuff because it sounds like stuff someone could have made back in the days with a minimal setup consiting of a computer, one or two synths and a sampler. This is a 10-12 bit track (somewhere in between) which is also heavily downsampled in order to achieve a more dirty and old sound. Im still unsure if I will release this, put some more work into it or just leave it like that. No idea.

Listening to it after producing it I got nostalgic for a time I didnt even live and needed to think about how this could be something from an unknown producer in the 90s. Love it!

The potential cover art for it is also very 90s (I guess):

As I've said on some of your other music posts, you have the vibe of the era spot on. Great sound choices and the mixing is on point.

I'm just not a big fan of the melody here - it doesnt seem to really go anywhere or grab my interest in any way. That's a personal preference though, others may disagree.

Nice work as usual though!

I know what you mean, its pretty "linear" I guess. Still thinking about improving this one but im unsure. Thanks for your feedback! :)
