I really really really needed to make some more music... was in a very bad mood due to loads of day job work... so I could not get to a point where I was happy with this tune.. so it just kept on going and going and going... and in the end, why not just let it go ? and keep it the way it is.. and not explore more complexities, melodies and just keep it as is? Damn, that was a hard decision.. it might feel incomplete on a first listen, but really for me it's so loaded with feelings, to the brim.
Initially, this track started with a system-1 arpeggiator melody.. that just evolved over time into a layer of basslines and other arpeggios, with a really simple beat.. that never starts, it just stays on a level waiting for the drop that never comes.
I hope you can enjoy this, as this was a painful tune to make.. on many different levels.
