I can’t think of a brief way to explain why I like this so much… so, if you’re not oldDog, and reading before listening, just never mind me, and listen straight through without stopping it prematurely!

Old Dog, listening to this again for the nth time on the remix radio experimental tag. This reminds me very much of one of my favorite groups out of Chicago, Tortoise, who also have members in Isotope 217 and the Chicago Underground Trio as well. The ambient development of simple sub-rhythms and tonalities associated with ambient music, phrased in small ensemble voicings similar to chamber pieces for sampling. Though if you haven’t heard them, Tortoise is worth checking out. www.trts.com Anyways, I really like the feel and listen of this piece, especially the underlying bass line which is what reminds me soo much, till next time.. Nice work!

Thanks shimoda.

And thanks for pointing me in the direction of Tortoise - I see what you mean about the similarities, and I like their mix of hi-tech techniques with a kind of lo-tech graininess. I’ll be listening to more of their stuff.
