It’s really masterful the way you blend materials so seamlessly, keeping the best of their original qualities but turning them into something new and beautiful in the process.

Great intro!

I’m going to shatter my personal guidelines (yet again) of edpick’ing artists who have not been picked before because this is more than good - this is important.

i guess this is an example of you being your own harshest critic as a critic?

this is pretty tasty teru. that intro is like the money shot. you could sell that to national geographic or the discovery channel. the rest of the mix after that also works incredibly well, from the syncopated cadences of the beats matched to the vox, to the sweeping pans and a mix so clean you can differentiate pretty much every track. the vocals are also a really perfect fit here, in a Tricky sort of way. this is better than Tricky.

What I enjoy so much about many teru tracks is not just the adept fitting of disparate pieces into a satisfying whole, but the sense that even were the track just in the backround, a part of your brain ends up getting snagged by it. This is a nice example of that…

OMG….that’s really
really good.
The harmony (in both the intro and the groove) is enough for me trip on, but every other aspect of this track is just as stunning.
F@$& me. That’s awesome.

I know I already commented, but I’m still tripping balls on this ‘piece’. I’m not sure if “mix” or “remix” is appropriate here; this is really composition, but instead of writing down rhythms and melodies you used entire musical sentences from completely disparate sources. Or seemingly disparate. You’ve shown us relationships where none had previously been apparent. Maybe this isn’t the first time that this has happened on this site or out in the world, but this is certainly a text book example for a text book that hasn’t been written, yet, about a subject that is just being uncovered. This playlist attempts to roughly follow the different sources used in your final masterpiece.

OK. That just blew my mind. ; )

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. :)

Its great the way you have created a new song with its own sound but at the same time including the samples in such a way that they are recognisable but do not intrude on the excellent new piece you have put together.

Your imagination never ceases to amaze me.
A work of ART.

I’m awestruck!!!!

That’s incredible. I was totally mesmerized by this music. It very very good listening. Bravo!!

I’ll admit I was drawn to it when I saw my first real piece of music was used in it. And I will admit I am flattered. I hadn’t ever expected that. I’m encouraged to make more. I will also admit I haven’t been checking out other music here. I need to get out more. So I am here a lot more and checking out the music. All because of this amazing song. Thank you.

The way the elements pan into the mix to supplement and enhance each step of the way is delightful. Layer by later, each element of the mix blends in, and yet it’s never too heavy. I like the vox and the little drone waves of sound.

Then the chlll intro breaks into the vocal, and the use of vocal based fx and backing flute is very effective. The percussion is very smooth and effective here. An extraordinarily polished job of mixing.

What might have been an over-the-top ‘pella is integrated into a warm chill setting in which it soothes the mind and platforms daydreams.

The wise use of gradual fade-in of sounds and the way in which the different elements work together is very appealing.

The way the elements of the song all conspire together to create a web of deceptively simple downtempo really impresses me. Smooth, soulful, interconnected, vibrant.

The extro flute and drone is just charming. What an amazingly good mix.

The beginning of this really does exist on some higher plane of beauty. Lulling enough that the following lounge-y vibe was a nice surprise. And I really like the slips back - it feels like getting lost in a daydream.

Not only does it sound great, but you really pushed production boundaries without sounding weird. Cool

A true musical journey. Lovely work Teru!

It takes someone with a real eye for colour to make a quilt this fine.

just utterly amazing, each part really does still contain the depth and emotions of the original but they are all bought together so well and so cleanly, truly an art and your really bloody good at it!

Really is beautiful. Ghost should use the intro as additional music for Crayon Physics Deluxe (the original game got HUGE recognition I read) that he’s working on - you should ping him on that. I’ve been stalling on a track that has multiple tempos for different segments, and seeing you do this may push me to finally finish it. Anyway, wonderful track. Say hey to the Narva 9 crew!

beautiful,just that

Beautiful and inspired. A listening delicious. Thanks for this.

cool mix. a very lush ambient beginning, but picks up with a nice chill trip-hop beat - kinda reminds me of portishead later in the mix.

Intro beat reminds me rather MA and their “inertia creeps” tune.

This track is next successful collage!

Dude man.

Sorry I missed this the first time around. It’s quite something. And by “something” I mean something entirely different. Or more. You know what I mean.

Or not.

It’s quite terrific.


That’s the word.
