This took about 8 hours to record in November 2010, and is probably one of the most minimal pieces I ever made. The December 2013 Edit/Remix/Master took a further 10 hours, but was fairly straighforward. Lots of GTG synths on here. Lightweight chillout pop, I think. Named in honour of a floating apparition associated with one of my favourite beverages.

:love: Effortlessly effervescent! A perfect electro-pop gem. Simple but very attractive riffs throughout. A Seismic classic and it is less than 6 minutes. :o

Lots of space in the mix making it a pleasure to listen. These GTG synths seem to suit you.

However, there is a conundrum. Both this and Recant are labeled track 4 of Concert Rust. :?:

Thanks very much for listening and commenting, Frantz. Glad you liked it :)

This is definitely simpler than many of my other tracks, with a less dense set of instruments/sounds, which probably creates the impression of space. I do like those GTG synths.

Recant was supposed to be track 3, but inflation got the better of me :dog:

This has a real minimal sound, but that´s what makes
it so pleasant.
Really like the bassline Tim ;-)

No, I've just been taking it easy (a bit too easy, some might say).

Glad you liked this, layzer, and thanks very much for listening :) The next one is already mixed and mastered. A little darker, a little more energetic than this. By the end of March, I should be making some new tracks.

I might get to check out obxd as well.

nice use of builds and sounds for the drum trac. cool upbeat theme with room to breathe,I liked the subtleness of the arrangement, I could work to it, lol
pleasantly listenable

i like it! it's very light, but not in a bad way. i could picture this as the perfect background music for the select screens of a good 90s video game. :) (which is of course meant as a compliment.)

Ok, I see we're back up and running…

Very different vibe for you here Tim, lighter and more introspective. Nicely integrated groove! The organ is perfect here and the synth work is tasty as always. Good stuff!

Nice. Very cool bass, and I like the floaty EP sound. Enjoyed it. Thanks, seismic1.
