Been a while since I posted anything here outside of streams, so figured I'd change that today :)



This is a tune that I originally wrote & recorded in October 2016, which I've since tweaked along with all of the other tunes from that particular session... but I still haven't found a home for all of them. I guess it's a sort of progressive/electronic kind of thing, but I'm rubbish with genres so I'll leave that up to you.

I'd love to know what you think of it! :D

Like the sound of this!

Reminds me so much of Tycho in the lighter floaty areas of the track

Wow, loved this. It's definitely a left turn from the more pastoral/ethereal sound that I've heard before from you, which makes it more appealing to me. Excellent mix too. The meandering guitar patterns remind me of Celtic Cross - Hicksville, but the heavier part departs from that template. Great mix too... I should probably watch your video's sometime to pick up some tips.

(edit: btw if you name the genre "adcore" I'm expecting an advertisement-sampling sonic collage with distorted beats... but maybe that's me)

Thanks! As is often the way when I'm working with odd time signatures, I didn't sit down and think "oh hey, it'd be fun to write something in 9/8" - I was just noodling on the guitar and it sort of turned out that way. It's always fun when that happens :)

Cheers - ahh yeah, I'd love to get a real drummer on some of my tracks but for a lot of my music I think it'd be cost prohibitive, unfortunately. That said, I'm currently looking to bring in a drummer on another project so if that works out well then, hey, who knows!

Oh wow, thanks! I'd never really considered much of a similarity to Tycho in this track, but I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't been influenced by Tycho's music before so it wouldn't surprise me if a little bit of that bled into this track :)

Haha, thanks! The mix in particular is something I seem to be constantly tweaking with the tunes I wrote in October 2016 (to be fair, the original versions sound like utter crap) so I'm glad to hear the mix doesn't sound too wonky. Also, I just realised from your logic that "Adcore" would be a perfect descriptor for Imagine Dragons. Eughhh.... :P

Great production Adam, I'd call this stuff Breaks (Progressive Breaks, if you need more descriptors), it reminds me of BT's style most. Everything is top notch here.
I write acid music in Reason and perform live on a bunch of machines without computers.

Thanks! Not sure I'd go with progressive breaks, myself - buuuut given that I'm rubbish with genres in general I'm not really in a position to criticise :) Glad you liked it!
