    This is really nice stuff. It's kind of like a mix of purity ring and the residents to me. I'd love to be able to do this type of stuff. I love the echoey bongo type sound that you have going through it. How did you do it? It's something I'd like to do myself

    My only 2 suggestions are that I'd beef up the kick and give it a bit of reverb. I'd also get rid of the wave that comes in at 4.08. It kind of ends the tune a bit too abruptly

    the bongo sound was really easy to make, you can find really nice bongo sounds in various sample packs (i found mine in a vengeance sample pack in the percussion section). then after that i just put some delay and reverb on the bongo. then just space out the bongos and it sounds like they're being hit at different velocities. youtube phaelah masterclass i got the idea from him!

    I like it, relaxing and thought provoking listen. Your mind wandered and you made a tune that makes minds wander. :)

    Geat job man. Really like that chill melody. Reminds me of something Rameses B makes.
