Tonal Drift
Martian Highlands

Not sure where my head was when I wrote this. Definitely different.

The drum pattern started out as a pretty straight ahead 4 pattern. The song was pretty boring. I offset the kick by a 16th note every now and then and it was much better. But then I had to figure out how to make the bass fit into the new groove. And then the other rhythm instruments also had to follow suit.

What makes this track for me is the interplay between the lead synth and the bass.
