Alright so after a quick chinwag in the comments section with @calumam on my Atmospheric drum & bass post called Ghost of Snare the other day, there was a request to share my other dark atmospheric track which is called Dark Times. The darkness of these two tracks are about as far down the nightmarish rabbit hole I want to go with my music and although we're experiencing glorious spring weather at the moment in the UK, some of you still like the dark vibes, so here you go:
Unfortunately, I couldn't get the recording off the radio show that this featured on but I was so happy to hear it get played on local radio, it was the first time I had the experience and I think the DJ was frantically trying to play more uplifting music for the rest of the show after... then to my surprise, she played it again at the end of the show! Legend Louise!
As you might imagine the strain I was going through at the time of the PhD, this was one of my ways of releasing that energy and the name just kinda lived up to the time I was in. Thankfully better days are here and today was an absolute "world flipped upside down" sort of day but in a very good way.
You know how you're just bumbling along and then you'll get a bolt out the blue that could potentially change your life. How about two bolts? Well, two big things happened today and we'll see how both of them go as time goes on but doesn't life just have a funny way of working? I can't say too much right now as I don't want to jinx it but not had a feelgood day like this for a while!
One thing I would say is that if both of those things turn out to be diamonds, my time online will pretty much be up so I'm hopeful I can complete the HiveBloPoMo challenge this month and then you may not see me around as much but I'll do what I can to keep in contact. Posting every day is a real challenge so kudos to everyone who is able to do it.
Hope you enjoy the tune today, seems oxymoronic to post a dark track after sharing some good news - will bring some liquid ones for the final countdown haha!
