    Hi Dave! I really enjoyed listenig to this one. Super marching bassline, a little bit of guitar lines are great as well. Sometimes linear, melodic; sometimes somehow comping in a jazzier convention. Very hard and clean-out drumming.

    Section from 2:39 sounds very much like a repetition of first section using different instruments only. Both sections are in the same mood, to me. Hard to explain - maybe I expected something more positive after hearing nature on the intro...

    A really melancholic mood/mode of this song but so very nicely produced! Sounds very powerful. Very fine piano playing too!

    Best to you, Alex

    Hey Alex thanks for the kind review mate!..originally I had this track slated for some spoken word and rap over the top of it but that connection fell through, I guess that's why it retains that funeral march type vibe...I'm working on some more quasi HipHop type material at the moment which promises to be a lot more optimistic in it's outlook. haha...I can see the scales on the piano but I lack the fluidity that ingrained practice provides, that's why you'll hear me using stabs a lot! lol...all the best Dave :)

    Very much enjoyed this song my friend! You bass is one fantastic sound to behold, a bit like I'm seeing it. I am not familiar with the TV series you mentioned, as I have not had cable in twenty years. I try to keep most of my viewing back about five years or more. Drugs are an odd subject, and it gets more muddled by the day. With the pharmaceutical and medical industries being one of the main guiding forces in the US, I honestly just assume that everyone I meet is on drugs. Then there is addiction, which is a word which seems to suggest "drugs" to most people. I try to see the addiction as separate, since many people can get addicted to almost anything... shopping, television, eating, exercising, pain, pleasure, and whatever you can think of. When it all comes down to it, addiction is a neurochemical reaction in an organ of the body, the brain. Most people who get off of drugs will quickly replace them with some other addiction. An addiction to anything can be disastrous, and it can also have the same effect on personality and behavior. Life as we know it would be completely alien if addiction did not exist, since it is common to all creatures on earth... I would wager that it is the largest driving factor in this industrialized, media driven life we know now. I've been watching a few episodes of "Hoarders" again, and I think this is a great example of what I'm talking about. It is pretty uncommon when drugs are even mentioned in the show, however these people are definitely addicts. I will be the first to admit that I love a good neurotransmitter cocktail, how I get it varies from day to day, and season to season... I suppose one could say that I am addicted to living. Sorry for rambling here... I guess I found very little to say about the song itself, because I know that you know it's AMAZING. There seems to be little argument about that, from reading the comments. A "signature" seems to come naturally in your work. Excellent song! Fave!

    Hey Pat thanks for dropping by mate!...I think Dali said it best "I don't take drugs, I am the drug!"... I tend agree with your point of view though I think the term obsessive compulsive behaviour fits better in some instances more than addiction, you have an obsessive compulsive personality ..so do I, in fact it's imperative that anyone who wants to hone their skills adopt this behaviour, too many people confuse obsessive compulsive with obsessive compulsive disorder, as in people that become hoarders...jeez come to think of it you can never have enough guitars! lol, it's a pity that this condition manifests all too often with money....I used to take drugs occasionally back in the day (purely social interactions) but these days I'm addicted to life just like you..cheers mate Dave :)

    this is pretty epic bro pretty epic indeed. I have only seen a single episode of narcos but being a man of many interests, Mr Escrobar and the many delights of his native land have been of particular interest to me. I can feel the vibes man. really feel them. I dam near had to powder my nose after the first min and a half just to bring back those fond memories....i digress....

    Strong arrangement and excellent instrumentation on this piece. Bass is dripping with swag and going fretless really allows a smooth flow of that low energy.
    Cheers for a great track.

    Hey thanks for the listen man!...glad you could connect with this tune mate, it reaffirms my theory that if you can visualise and see a track's meaning when you making it there's way more chance that someone else will also feel the continuity...thanks for the great review Floman!...all the best Dave :)

    having listened to this track and downloaded it, i feel a review is long overdue! ill try and keep it short...

    i had never watched narcos before (don't really watch anything outside espn or sports really LOLOL). this definitely got me curious though, since your track reminded me more of something id hear in an intro to the earlier episodes of "breaking bad" or "better call saul" (something my roommate forced me to watch since, again, i don't watch anything outside sports LOL).

    and wow, you definitely nailed the theme.

    if i can give you one slight piece of advice, it'd be regarding the high-end on your fills, rides, etc at places like 0:43, 1:07, etc...it's too screechy at times... or maybe this is my opportunity to re-calibrate my headphones and revisit all my mixes =P...

    great job otherwise! have it downloaded for repeated listens on those days i just wanna kick back and chill out... ;)

    Hey AsidRn thanks for the listen and review man!..glad you enjoyed the track, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are two of my favourite shows, jeez I wouldn't have minded being able to do some of the backing music for them or better yet a small acting role playing some deranged nutter! haha..They say as you get older your higher frequency perception decreases somewhat, maybe I've got an issue there, I hope not! lol ..thanks again mate very much appreciated! cheers Dave :)

    I always have to listen to your stuff more than once! I get lost in them. I've never seen Narcos, but this strikes me of something that could very well be heard on a television show. I don't know how to describe your work, but it makes me think of a relaxing Saturday, lounging around in the pjs, drinking coffee, reading a good book, not really worried about anything for the day. Always a pleasure to listen to your work Dave! :-)

    Hey Pat..thanks for listening and so glad you liked it!...I thought my music would probably only get played in correctional facilities or mental asylums! lol...when you mainly do instrumentals as I do it's gratifying to hear people actually enjoying it, maybe one day I'll be on high rotation at the local supermarket! haha...thank you again and hope all is well...cheers Dave :)

    Hey mate good to see you again buddy!...yeah the HipHop side is very much intentional as this was going to be the backing for an old school performer from here, but he dicked me around for months and months without any action so I pulled the plug on him, it happens sometimes but in the end I prefer it as an instrumental. Hope you are well man appreciate the listen! cheers Dave :)

    Ahaaa now i have found you i will stay on the track like a musical bloodhound sniffing for jazz riffs blues runs and all good things guitarwise oh yes my droogish brother this glassy guitar which lived in the first half of the track made me go back and repeat the experience. Hail to the stratocaster and its brother the telecaster. :)

    As I type this I have my G&L USA Legacy sitting on my lap, I've always been a Leo Fender disciple, he was a true American genius and since he set up G&L his instruments have only improved (in very small increments as you can't reinvent the wheel) I've always loved that single coil sound unique to Strat and teles, I think G&L's are better build quality than the new Fender American Standards and rival their custom shop creations, though nothing could beat having a 64 Strat or 57 Tele (Imo) but hell, who could afford one of those!...thanks again mate, your comments are much appreciated! Dave :)

    Once you understand them building guitars is quite simple. I still need to build my cbg bass and violin though :p I love watching border wars, and stuff on you tube about the mexican drug cartels, very fitting tune. Never seen narcos but looking it up after this.

    Hey mate, you'll really dig Narcos then, mind you there's plenty of gratuitous violence however the production, acting and continuity are excellent. cheers mate Dave ps. How about a tea chest bass instead of a cbg bass?

    Had my undivided attention from guitar note 1...thought I caught a wee touch of Spanish in the guitar but that bass walking along with everybody was just taking us on a trip...hard to avoid noticing the little embellishments that cast additional interest into the music...very cool work on the keys...it would fit perfectly in the "Thinking Persons Music" if there were such a genre....a treat for the musical mind and ears Dave...not a surprise when PJB is the artist....Bravo......Ed

    Hey Ed thanks buddy your comments on the piano playing made my day!..man I wish I had of taken it up seriously when I was a kid!!! I have been practising quite a bit of late and intend to utilise it more and more within my tracks, my old collab partner Zappo has disappeared unfortunately, he had a serious turn of bad health awhile back and repeated efforts on my part to contact him have failed, quite worrying but it makes me get off my arse keyboard wise I guess...thanks again mate! cheers Dave :)

    You know Dave, just an aside, I just did a Halloween tune, that has that New Orleans funeral kind of drone to it on a funk basis, and I had been listening to this tune (your tune) earlier in the day before I made that tune, so there is definitely an influence in sound strategy going on subconsciously and I did not realize that till you commented back. Music is awesome sometimes ehh?

    Jeez Steve talk about six degrees of separation, just before I made this track I was listening to some Dixieland (probably the only form of jazz that I'm not particularly endeared to but their my father's old records so I make a habit of listening to them) and I got the feel of a New Orleans funeral procession, must have been the tempo or all the bodies piling up in Narcos! lol... music certainly moves in mysterious ways brother...I'll be over to check out that Halloween track mate..cheers Dave

    I like this one. There is a lot of space to explore in this one. Always a fan of alternative percussion. Song just takes you along at it's own pace. At 2:37 is a tasteful piano string bridge, invoking the emotion of the wreckage in the lives of people around, near or using drugs. I feel the bass line represents the never ending progression of time and is the anchor of this tune.
    great work as always.

    Hey Steve thanks man!..you totally got where I was going with this piece, the second half nearly developed into a quasi funeral march at one stage.lol I had thought about using some lyrical content with a hiphop artist but that fell through and on reflection I'm glad it did, it would work better as an audio accompaniment to some film footage I think, thanks again for your comments mate very much appreciated!..cheers Dave :)

    Great sound! I totally love the fx and foley in the intro. Afterwards it just gets better and better.

    That kick drum is interesting, definitely goes well with the overall dark sound. I really like how open the guitar sounds and how well it works with the rest of the instrumentation. That bass is really deep, I love it's sound, there is something about that simple bass line that just drags you back into the song.

    Very well done! I really like this song!

    Hey Mahloo thanks man! I got that sound from my electric acoustic 5 strung with black nylon tapewounds using a piezo under saddle, since this track I've added a magnet pickup to the bass as well to expand the tonal possibilities, glad you enjoyed the track mate, very much appreciated!..cheers Dave :)

    Wow, that's some tight mood music PJB, very film noir. The bass track is so f'n swanky, sounds like is it played on a fretless ? Such a killer production wise, you really schooled us with this one bro. I know we don't get to see stuff from you so frequent so this is really a treat. Big props and much thanks for the DL !

Description : HEY, hey guys...IM BACK! and it feels amazing. I took a month or so off to work thru some shit, and in that time i bring you this. Personally my best work so far imo. I may add lyrics to it eventually, but not sure yet. The original has a longer beginning for that reason. Thanks to chanho17 for uploading great piano loops for use. let me know what you think!

Description : First off, I am a huge fan of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit." After watching all of the movies (including the final chapter of the Hobbit", I was motivated to write something that I thought might work with their journey home.

Samplitude has a couple of great new VST's, one called "World Flutes" and the other "Celtic Harp" and I used both of them in this song. I created every last note on this one. Guitars were all Fenders, soft synths besides the Samplitude items mentioned previously were created in the SynthMaster series by KVR, and the strings were created with Samplitude's "String Ensemble."

Not sure about the mix (my hearing is shot), so most of the mixing is done by sight instead of listening. If you hear something way out of whack, let me know. If you are interested in taking this one further, let me know and I'll post a link to the stems. Thanks to the Hobbit for the inspiration and to you for listening.

EDIT: I've had some requests for the individual instrument stems so here is the link to all of those files. The tempo is 80bpm. Feel free to do whatever you want with this one.

https://www.mediafire.com/?vzbi2scw8vc7cws

EDIT: I've had over 200 downloads of the stems, so if you have done anything with them it would be cool to hear it (thanks for the interest).

Description : Ok...here it is! Another colab with maestro Tumbleweed! Ed provided the unfinished, basic track...I composed and recorded the long intro using different synths and then added piano (well to the fore) and some brass arrangements along the rest of the track (no violin this time...hehe) and then did the final mixing to wrap it up as it is presented now. I hope you will enjoy it and we both appreciate your listening time and your valuable comments:) Otherwise all thanks to Ed!

Description : I had no particular intention doing this, but then it just came on me out of nowhere....How to make an antithesis Halloween work!? Prior to that there were no plans to make a track for the occasion, furthermore I've never been really interested in such a thing. It always seemed a bit silly to me if not outright childish. But then I remembered the Interview with The Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My gosh, there was some peculiar romanticism in there and I probably don't have to tell you twice that this must be a bait for Orlando, as is a cup of fresh young blood for a vampire...:) Furthermore I like people who are different, so I just have to like vampires who a different as well...hehe...so it should be dawning on you by now that this won't be your standard Halloween tune...haven't I mentioned "antithesis"? So...no growling zombies, midnight cemetery bells, creaking doors or any of your favourite horror sounds, although it's still a little bit darker in tone...hell yeah, vampires are still vampires...haha...but this one is mainly about a vampire desperately in love with a young lady, craving for her as a madman...I won't tell whether she's also a vampire or not, cause you might figure it out listening to the track...^^ Otherwise it was about time for me to come up with a new solo work, since I've been almost exclusively doing collabs in those past few months (which I love ofcourse)...afteral you can always ask Ed...:)^^____Happy Halloween folks!:)

first it starts from WorldWar2, one of the most sadly years for human. then after the war, you can see people are happy, kids are playing, but after some years, you can see the world is getting ready for the WorldWar3 and then you can hear the rest of the story in music...
