Unlocking embrace

A song collaboration

Current weather: 12°C (Sunny)

Liner Notes

@elesimo[archived]: Bill reached out for us to make a collaboration, and sent me a really nice track with dark pads.

I was happy that the key was in Db, because I could finally use the guitar capo that I had bought for FAWM! I added 3 different guitar tracks, with the leads drowning in reverb (using an impulse response from a tower). The drums came from the OP-Z, which I was hoping to use it more on the track but didn't feel it was necessary.

The song came naturally after listening to Bill's track, and I really like all the elements together — they capture well the kind of sound that I love. Definitely a favorite!

@heuristicsinc: I reviewed a song by @elesimo[archived] using the OP-Z and thought it was pretty cool, so I checked out their artist page and saw that they had said they were open to collabs, so I reached out. The original track I recorded was Maschine with Massive (2, I think) synths, done with live looping and semi-improvised. I sent the track over, and thought that the result was pretty much perfect! A favorite on my side too.

This is awesome. Love that dark driving undertone, beeps, panning, textured sounds... lots of great layers. There are spots where the darkness lifts slightly and then comes back which is a fun little twist in the listening experience. Those subs hit hard. Great collab. Love this.

Definitely feel the darkness in this. Wonderfully moody atmosphere. Love the gentle beeps underneath, they skitter around pleasantly
