Caustic Song file (optional):
This has been in germination since February but is based on an older track that's been in my WiP folder for more than a year. The working title was 'Rebirth'. I think the only bit that survived is the heavily filtered Subsynth stabs that kicks off the track.
Last year, almost everything I uploaded to Soundcloud was made from older stems - this is a continuation of that method but the next two or three tracks I'm likely to finish were started in the last two or three months. It's also another experiment with writing using scales - C Harmonic Minor on this one.
The title is made up of States from Ron Trent's seminal techno / house tune 'Altered States' and Positive from Slam's 'Positive Education' that was widely acknowledged to have been heavily influenced by the earlier Ron Trent track. The 808 toms and the synth strings are the clear nod to those tunes.
I like this - let me know that you think. File is up as normal if anyone wants to have a poke at it.
This is epic, rolling techno with a definite uplifting, spiritual feel from the Subsynth strings - a touch of melancholy too though.
