polyphonic love - A dark and twisted track that takes the listener on a bit of a journey in to the land of the lost. One may imagine a dark and dusty early morning with soft strobes echoing in the corner and heavy feet... trying to push on for dawn. A smooth bassline is the lead for this deep and dirty dance-floor love affair, soft transitions into rapid fire high-hats and reverberated-off-timed claps to offer just the perfect amount of change that keep you tied to the evolving bassline The key elements of this track are pushed then pulled over and over while anticipation builds and builds for a climax. What gives this track appeal is that the climax is never reached allowing the listener/dancer the freedom to just lose themselves in the sound..
