Really nice album Ben! You’re so good at assembling these, and you do the mixing and mastering yourself, right?

I really like the more “upbeat” mood and tempo on this one, and it’s the drone day album I like the best so far, by far. Great work!

thank you so much!

yes, i do all the mixing and mastering myself, in reaper (my daw of choice).

this one ended up being “lighter” as i tried to avoid getting too bass-heavy (which is an easy trap when doing drone) and too dense. i like the result.

Respect! Yes, “lighter”, that’s the word I was looking for. It definately works.

Thanks for including me! I really don’t know how you manage to pull all this together and make such a coherent sounding hour long piece. It’s magic!

I’ve just had a full listen and yes, super nice! I’m kinda curious about the individual bits, because it all vibes so well together - ? - but on the other hand, I’m not at all and instead just appreciate what(ever) magic you’ve done. Happy to be a part of it!
