Date: February 29, 2012
Software: Ableton Suite 8
Genre: House
Timing: 6:47 @ 125 bpm

Pellucid Concinnity concludes a stop-and-start month with a groove that ended up feeling a little darker and more spaced out. I started a few other tracks this month, none of which gelled like this one did.

We’re starting out with a DJ-friendly four-on-the-floor beat, stripped back to the bare essentials: a kick, a snare, and a closed hi-hat. The languid chord on Gm–Bbm gives the track a tonal foundation, although it’s a chord change in an unusual place. Another chorded synthesizer and arpeggiated bell give a bit of depth to the tune. A synth baritone line pulses a syncopation in two variations over a deep bass that throbs under the floor.
