Description
SammyDix comes thru again!

The original files for this one were a 16 bar electric piano loop I made and a wonky Podolski synth line. I sent it to Sam, who whipped it into shape and added drums, bass, keyboards, electric & acoustic guitars and horns. After that, it was easy to cut and move around some sections for a chorus section and add a "vocal". I added a guitar in the chorus and then mixed it down.
Hope you enjoy.

Groovy beat...
This could be part of the next sound track for a James Bond film. Send it in! What a great pulse you've set up. Run those credits. Nicely done. (Those little bits and pieces of added percussion —sticks and such—are subtle but very effective, too.)

Sam is the guy who worked all the magic here: my original track was the kind of thing you might hear on college radio at 4:30 AM...
Thanks very much for the listen and the kind words!

Nerve Net
is a good one alright. Eno looms pretty large for me. Interestingly enough, I haven't listened to him much for a long while, and then about 3 weeks ago, I reloaded Taking Tiger Mountain onto my ipod. Maybe it's had an effect on my music! Thanks for listening Bryn.

Podolski!
I saw that synth released - first track I've heard using it :) This is pretty funky - love the slightly dissonant chord mix. The scat style vocal is a nice touch. Genrewise somewhere between Rock and Chillout.

Podolski
The only bit of it that made the final cut was that little plastic-y sounding bit that starts at 4:08. I've got a ton of other stuff with that synth, though, so stay tuned!

Genre-bending
All the time this was percolating, I was thinking more "Tortoise" than anything else. When it came time to post I went with Rock...... Thanks very much for listening!

Abyss: entrancing
Really tasty smooth jazzy warm and enveloping. You are Sammy nailed it. Gorgeous sonic nuances, chattering vocals, with a kind of tension holding the whole thing together. You sit on the edge of your seat waiting for it. When it comes, it comes wrapped in velvet and smooths your hair back with a whisper and a promise.
