Relentless ...
and addictive. I think it's the combination of the 1-2-3-4 bass, the dreamy synth backdrop, the lack of chord changes, and the fact that you avoided a 1-2-3-4 kick track, thereby avoiding the disco feel. Nice work. Rand would only wonder if your song is contributing to the cult of collectivism. I think you're OK, but she might wonder why you connect hubris (excessive pride) with her.

Hubris
First of all, great reference to Ayn Rand - I read everything of hers a thousand years ago. Whether she'd smile or grimace - who cares? This is GREAT - I agree with previous posts, this remains extremely interesting throughout, great sounds, changes - it's driving but not mind numbing in the least. Keeps me wanting more - I was sad when it ended (how about an extended version??)

Thanks
Thanks for the interest and the listen! I haven't been recording anything for some time and had this in progress for quite awhile. I agree its rather short. I was worried about it getting repetitive and not sure where else to take it. I may get back to it for a longer version.

I like it
Nice beat and very cool sounds going on here. The mix is terrific and the production outstanding - lovely sound in the phones, with great bass. I think it could be longer, but at the same time it does its thing within its own time-frame. Maybe this is how long it needs to be? Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

this almost straightaway...especially what I shall dub the growly bit about 90 secs in.Some potential for extending the recording here I do believe...greateroony.
