Great track here. Nice use of samples and you picked the perfect pella to put on top of it. Love it.

I get a great sense of joy from this, it is like a musical summers day (what summers used to be like, not like the constant rain we get in summer in the uk at the moment)

Absolutely lovely! Delightful. Delicious. The rhythm track is popilicious, and the sitar lends one of my favorite summery feelings. Bravissimo!
yes! you’re right. I called it a melody keyboard in the comment and how-I-did-it, while it is actually a synth sound based on real sitar samples (but chromatic and with no slides).
I also did a perceptual experiment in the beginning, mixing the sitar melody very low so that there’s an initial mess (even because there’s no bass reference), you don’t get the melody even if you should have a generic impression of “shimmer”. But if you listen to the song a second time soon after the first one, you hear the melody now because it has emerged in the following period and you got used to it so your brain follows that.

You have such an incredible pop sensitivity, Carosone. Fantastic remix of Super Sigil. Wonderful pella choice. Such a happy melody!
