Sometimes when I start an album I will use the jumping off point of "What If"?

I like to speculate how my music could have evolved if things had gone a different way. With this album I thought about what if progressive electronic music loomed larger on the musical landscape? I love and have mostly been focused on larger scale abstract electronic sound worlds, but I have always loved well crafted, more song based forms, too. Vangelis, early Private Music releases (Patrick O'Hearn and Eddie Johnson, especially.) William Orbit, Air and many others move me in the best way. So I became inspired to create this album, which in some cases are earlier pieces radically remixed as well as some new pieces specifically written for this album.

What if that early Private Music label had become as popular and influential as Motown? There are some tracks here with 5/4 or 7/4 time looping over 4/4 drum patterns. Lots of unexpected chord changes, unique rhythmic textures. And I tried to find ways of making melodies shine in-between odd, shifting patterns. Bacharach meets Progressive Electronic? What if?

Excellent album from Mr. Ellis! A nice blend of electronics and upbeat tunes. I recommend it highly!

(And despite this being my post #666, there is nothing devilish about it!)
