    Hi Fastlane,

    don't know how you managed all those sounds. I started this Friday with your great piece, I am awake now, for shure.
    Just the piece of music to stay alert during rush hours. Great doing. All the 4:33 minutes.

    Greetings,

    Raymond

    Good music and very skillfully done. Many interesting things happen along the way keeping it appealing. I don't like fading out endings however, since I think the ending should add something to the tune, being an important part.
    I enjoyed the tune, it brings many new aspects of music to me. The rhythm with the bass playing is magnificent.

    Greetings,
    Kjell

    My God - suddenly I was thrown back into the late 60s electronic music courses in college. This piece is a wonderment on several levels, but most importantly - it is fun. After listening a couple more times I swear I heard the Ghostbusters station wagon speeding by.

    No. Wait! Could have been Peter Gunn - I don't know. But I like it.

    Bravo.

    Hi Raymond,

    Yes, I had to deal with a lot of tracks and sounds. As many times, I had to cut back on some of the sounds for some clarity.

    It’s definitely a wake up and get moving tune.

    Hey Kjell! Thanks.

    I started this using the main synth rhythm and then a lot of experimentation before things started to gel.

    I debated about doing a clean ending or a fade out and decided a fade out in keeping with the time period-and it was less work. I guess I can always add a clean ending, possibably modlulating.

    The bass was Art Vista’s Back Beat Bass. It goes from a rock-a-billy to jazz feel. I had it more towards the jazz setting. It also has other setting options.

    Tom,

    It does contain a few influences from the sixties and early seventies.

    I borrowed the title from the Afrofuturistic George Clinton band Funkadelic/Parliment and their Mother Ship. Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, the Spencer Davis Group and period R&B. That first drastic change might be derived from the original Star Trek theme. Someone else also mentioned Peter Gunn.

    I glad you enjoyed it!

    Hi Phil,

    With open mouth I listened to your magnificent piece. It reminds me a bit of André Brasseur (Belgian organ player who scored a world hit around 1970 with his "Early Bird". You're a master at this kind of music (not my field at all and I envy you). The bass is indeed wonderful and so clear cut (in you're mix and in its sound).

    Thanks for this fantastic piece!

    With admiration,
