    Altair - Wild and Free [Free Download]

    For years and years since the end of high school I've been puttering along learning Ableton, starting many unfinished projects but never following through for a variety of reasons. The artist was a daydream, to be fulfilled at some future point.

    Well that point is today. I proudly present the best track I have ever made, which I started two and a half years ago but have only really fleshed out since last summer. Guitar was performed by my friend, and I cut out some of it in the SoundCloud preview below due to using a sample from a top 40 hit from several years back. Inspired by artists such as Eco, Breakfast and Explosions in the Sky, the fiery sunsets over my home in the plains of Alberta (pictured in the artwork), and the struggle towards and payoff of running free.

    Thanks so much for your support all this time (especially @Gagi ), and I can absolutely guarantee you that this won't stay my best track for long



    Full track will be available tomorrow on my Bandcamp (there was a rendering glitch so it just repeats itself after the drop). Please tell me what you think!

    Edit: FULL TRACK IS NOW ONLINE! https://altairsjh.bandcamp.com/track/wild-and-free

    I really like the sound of this. Interested to hear it in full. Can definitely pick up on the Eco vibes, however I liked this sample more than most of his recent works.

    You didn't even have to say who were your inspirations for this. You could hear Eco's influence straight away (or should I say DJ Eco's, since it reminds me of his earlier works). Naturally, I like the style very much. I like how the guitar goes really well with the rest of the track, and that is noticeable especially in the intro. I'm impressed with that actually. Can't wait to hear the full thing!

    And congrats on finishing this! Second week of January and you're already delivering on your promises!

    Really great track. The intro and break are awesome. Maybe would benefit from 2-3 bpm slower. Love the guitars. Not to keen on the square-lead on the third part. Dont really fit with the rest of the track imo. Would have loves to hear main part based on the guitar. But i love the overall vibe! Let me know if you need a remixer

    I hear lots of Eco, and there's little sprinkles of Breakfast in there as well aren't there? Good stuff.

    Holy SHIT man I've never got a remix request before!!! On my first release too!! Thank you so much!! Give me some time to break it down into stems and you go right ahead - I'd love to hear a more progressive YAMS take on it.

    The square lead is one of the main tributes to Eco actually - y'all are right that this is consciously inspired by his 2009-era sound. A long time ago I was fooling around in another project and randomly manage to recreate his squarish lead sound, so I saved that as a preset and tweaked it with some distortion. It's literally called "Ecoesque" in my library

    And I'll pass on your thanks to my guitar-playing friend. I'm actually learning myself right now, but it'll still be a while yet before I'm confident enough to perform it myself.

    Man this is great! I love the buildup, a lot!
    This is the kind of vibe that's missing on music as of lately imho. The guitar is incredible, it really fits the track.
    Congratulations!

    Intro part is really nice, so is the breakdown. I don't usually like these style of guitars on Trance but I like this one because its not in your face so much. No into the melody though as its a bit too happy-go-lucky for me. Really do hear your inspiration from Eco and Breakfast, so good job with that. Nice one.
