Groovy
Like the groove on this with that similar 80's Talking Heads Rhythm thang going on there. I think I heard something like this in one of those smart-allecky boutiques in image conscious Dallas... I usually don't stay long in those places, but I really like this! (Irrelevant info I know) so aside from that. This has a real clarity to it and simple in idea and structure. A sure fav.

Dallas
I've never been in Dallas, so many thanks for your impressions and nice picture of the smart-alecky boutiques! I didn't think of the Talking Heads so far - you are right.

Thanks for stopping, Andy

Brings me back
It's like my early teens all over again! Nice groove to this. Although it makes me feel old when I think I used to listen to this stuff in the 80's! Anyway nice tune and thanks for sharing.

80ies kid
Strange but true:Back in the 80ies I used to listen to Prog. Art Rock, even Metal and I didn't like Pop much (exceptions: Kraftwerk and DM). It took a few years ... up from the mid 90ies I like that 80ies Pop stuff and Electronica very much (beside handmade music).

Techno beats inside
The drums sections are are a crude mixage of several drum kits melted togehter (even containing analogue drum parts that hopefully made it a bit less clean).

Thanks alot for listenin, Feter

The 80s. I was so unaware of 80s music. I'll have to take your word for it. This sounds a little more serious than what think of when I see the word electropop. You might not like the comparison, but for some reason it reminds me of Hella Good by No Doubt. Well, I like that song, too. Nice funky beat, cool use of the Phrygian, and top production. I wish I could make music that sounded this good.

No Doubt
No, I have no problem with that comparison - I only know 3 or 4 songs of No Doubt (but I will take a chance to listen to the song you mentioned). Much often you're "reproducing" things you have heard before without notice. This time I spent much time with mixing / production using different ear / headphones from the classical iPod to standard monitor speakers, which helped much to get the "right" sound. BTW. You do not need to hide behind your productions!

thanks alot!

...
this is great.... the low end really makes this track... and the wide range of sounds going on.... but it all works together... i loved the stop at 1:53 and then the build back up def. leaves me wanting more of this....

Being spoiled.
Good blend of the contemporary and the 80s. like every good 80s synthpop it has that melancholy, almost romantic feel.

Blend
Good to read this. I always intend not to drift too far back into the 80ies (and to put feet into the new century).
Thanks for stopping!

Effectiveness
Good to read that I might be successful in trying to keep things simple. (For me) cleaning up songs is one of the hardest challenges.

Thanks, Dick!

echo
Oh sh*t this track is just made for some Echoroom 80's vocal styling. What a tour-de-force, the synths are at once expansive and quirky-weird and mind numblingly glitchy. Excellent mix, great progressions and passages. Thx Alex!

Both
Fortunately particledots deconstruction is pretty different so both tracks are hard to compare. But I can say I'm a bit jealous of amazing bass line...

Thanks Guy
