about

This is a release of two different approaches towards the electronic music genre of Drum & Bass.

The first track, Waiting Right Here, explores a more popular music-fused approach, and features vocals, guitars, keyboard, and train station-inspired ambient noise. Looped sounds and recurring motifs are layered over each other to provide backing to a musical allegory about a man waiting for his significant other. An instrumental version of this track is available on the EP as well.

The final track, Mission (B Side), is a remix of earlier material from the year, and borders on the spontaneous and eccentric. It focuses upon the harmonic progressions of the second bridge and the seven-measure refrain of the original, and further explores their polyrhythms and textures while keeping a high-energy synthesized profile.

Track Name: Waiting Right Here
Seven eighteen in the morning
I haven't slept since... well, who knows when
The bench is empty, as is the station
And this is how I start my day again

I follow each train passing by
Tomorrow comes and it says goodbye
And even then, I don't ever catch a glimpse of you
I might as well be a vacant hole
'Cause even hell couldn't claim my soul
You look inside, and you'll find that you see right through

Watching the dawn turn into dusk
Rails begin to rust
And all that keeps me running through the hours
Is the thought that maybe I could find you
Here

Chorus:
And when I think of you
The future is so crystal clear
We're gonna make it through
You know that I'll be waiting right here
And when I see your smile
The fire in me lights anew
I know it's worth the while
You know I don't mind waiting for you

Waiting for you
You know I don't mind waiting for you
Waiting for you
You know I don't mind waiting for you

And so I sit here, passing by the days and weekends
Another month flies by, another month I stayed
And so I sat here, feeling the temptation creep in
As my simple reason for keeping put begins to fade

My battered senses losing track of time
My scattered tenses keeping backwards rhyme
I can't recall, does forever happen then or now?
I fear the solace that I take in fate
Is getting smaller every minute that I spend in waiting
I'm ticking and ticking and ticking as I talk out loud

Watching the walls turn into dust
Years and years of trust
And all that keeps me from running from my problems
Is the thought that maybe I could see you
Here

Chorus:
But when I think of you
The future is so crystal clear
We're gonna make it through
You know that I'll be waiting right here
And when I see your smile
The fire in me lights anew
I know it's worth the while
You know I don't mind waiting for you

Waiting for you
You know I don't mind waiting for you
Waiting for you
You know I don't mind

All of the struggle I've been through
Fades with love for you
When I promised you I'd wait for you forever, I-

Seven eighteen in the morning
I've been awake since- well, never mind
I get the feeling my heart's been aching
Another thing I'm sure will pass with time

Repeat First Chorus
