From Studio Jams to release on Spotify

Friend, it's time for some new music. 

I have been on the chillout and Lofi waves for some time. A few new songs are finally getting released to the broad universe of Streaming. 

"Chilled out on a Cloudy Thursday": 
Yes, the weather was dodgy that day. I was also suffering from writer's block and didn't feel in "the Zone" at all. But playing around with new production techniques can often lead to great music in a heartbeat. 

This song also started like that. A generic idea came to life by jamming around a few new production concepts in my main DAW Cubase Pro 11. 
A chopped-up beat fills up the rhythm section with a jazzy Lofi vibe. The bassline was added as the driving force together with the easily recognizable filtered synth riff. 

After that session, I just sat on the computer doing nothing but teasing my and good friend's ears occasionally. 

I decided to break with the paradigm that shelved ideas stay as ideas and began working with the track after a few years of "just sitting there".  

I thought the initial jazz loop lacked some low-end and added a soft 808 to drive the pulse throughout the tune. Building up a chilled-out synth ensemble around it just gave it some extra juice. With some lush melodies, the song turned from a generic idea to a full-fledged laidback tune. 

"Chilled out on a Cloudy Thursday" is a part of my Beatify concept "Summersome". Feel free to take a listen on the music page or find it on all major streaming platforms. The tune is OUT NOW
