I can't believe it's been 2 years since I discovered jives and I've slept on so much of his new stuff. Waking up with a power-up sonic pilled titled "Circadian Rhythm".

A circadian rhythm, or circadian cycle, is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep–wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours. It can refer to any process that originates within an organism and responds to the environment.

The track gave me goosebumps from the very first play. The drum pattern is absolutely gorgeous and I can only imagine plugging in some ghost notes here in there the first time I managed to sit behind a kick. That aside, this composition sent Tom straight to the top of my producers to watch in 2021. Super clean sound, very catchy and the groove is both captivating and weirdly dark. Plus, the way he plugged those chopped vocals... superb.

I can definitely see this being played in both early night sets.
