[Music] End of day

I asked, and apparently this doesn’t count as “dub”, despite the “woob-woob” bass. A melange of physical and synthetic instruments, this piece puts a strong focus on the viola lead, supported by light violins, cellos, and piano, and underpinned by the aforementioned “woob-woob”-ing.

[Music] Next to you

Although originally conceived as a lyrical piano piece, this track is at its best in the central section, where bass and synth lead dominate (at least in my opinion). It’s somewhat experimental (there are some interesting sounds in the mix), but not, hopefully, too much so.

[Music] Daylight

For some reason, 7/8 has always appealed to me. This laid-back track layers 7/8 lines at normal- and half-speed to establish a “flow” — which is then disrupted at the end by offsetting some lines by a quaver or a crotchet.
