When I made this one I was really shooting for something upbeat and uplifting. I was inspired by some IDM and glitch music at the time. I didn’t really approach that sound, I just kind of made my own thing with it.
The drums have a sort-of chugging feel to them, in contrast to how smooth I used the samples. All of Kaer Trouz material is useful in many different ways…
I was also experimenting with different ways to manipulate stereo effects at the time and one of the ways I did it in this track was to loop the intro and slowly swap the stereo on every drum. Subtle, but I thought it was interesting.
