The talented electronic artist Chris Luno (Anjunadeep, Purified), takes us on a warm and nostalgic musical voyage with his new sensational collaborative track with Exit Coda, entitled "These Days". The track marks Luno's debut release on Lane 8's esteemed label - This Never Happened.
The creative process behind "Those Days" was a true testament to the power of collaboration and the magic that can unfold when minds connect across distances. Luno and Exit Coda embarked on a remote musical journey, exchanging ideas and versions of the track over the span of three months. The result is a finely crafted piece of art that encapsulates the essence of their shared vision.
As the track evolved, a breakthrough moment occurred during version 4, where Luno felt a sense of playfulness was missing from the composition. In a stroke of serendipity, while experimenting with various synth sounds, a synthesizer sample was accidentally time-stretched, giving birth to a captivating and playful sound that floats gracefully atop the infectious bassline. This fortunate accident added a touch of whimsy to the track, as the sound alternates between question and answer, engaging the listener in a delightful musical conversation.
"Those Days" serves as an uplifting anthem, conjuring nostalgic emotions and evoking a profound sense of joy. Its infectious energy and vibrant melodies effortlessly transport listeners to a place where carefree memories come alive. The track's sun-kissed atmosphere and infectious rhythms create the perfect sonic backdrop for warm weather and outdoor gatherings.
