Big, melodic techno-soul. 2011.

Very much inspired by Mad Mike Banks' idea of a "hi-tech jazz". Sequenced and mastered in Synapse Orion. Thanks for listening.

Awesome progression. I really like the track, nice choice of sounds.

Had me moving my feet so much in my train seat this morning that I almost dropped my Kindle. Definitely putting this on my pick me up list.

Incidentally, if anyone is interested in more music like this, I highly recommend the work of Fabrice Lig (who also records as Soul Designer). He put out a record of mine a few years ago, but I was a huge fan of his before that. He's the undisputed champion of energetic, soulful, life-affirming techno.

Hey, this is really good working music. I pounded out two slightly-technical work emails before the song was even over. *I feel so motivated*

A version with a soulful singer (and like seven Magical Glacial Space-star units of reverb) would be pretty sweet...

Thanks Doleful. My wife sings beautifully but is super shy about it, and neither of us feel real confident in our ability to write non-ridiculous lyrics, but doing something with original vocals is definitely something I'd like to explore down the line.

Shits bumpin', man.

I aim to bump.

Thanks cortex.
