Liner Notes: 

A song composed in Jeskola Buzz that has been simmering for a few days. What I like the most about it is that I used a number of different kinds of audio sources to compose this. This uses VSTi technology, a Native Buzz Machine, Soundfonts & Samples. It all starts off with HG Fortune's wonderful Dream Machine ST VSTi giving this track that orchestral-like background ambience. Next I added CyanPhase's Bass Pluck Buzz Machine for the bass. After that the Jeskola XS-1 makes a re-appearance as a Soundfont player providing the song with it's piano. The vocals are samples played through a Matilde Tracker 3 Buzz Machine. Finally, HG Fortune's Percumat 2 provides the drum track. Some composing, mixing & rendering later, I offer you all this little song. I'm quite pleased with the results.

I like, what I will call the Bass riff'd line.

The vocal mix is very well considered. (And esp for what some might label "EDM"..., (I am not); not usually as lyrically musical as this is, well done.)
