My general rule is that tracks with lyrics are not the best music to write to ‘cos you get distracted by the words – i.e. they compete for space in your language centers – better to not have them around if you’re looking to create your own. However – there’s always the expectation to the rule and this track proves it pretty nicely.
The word that come to mind when listening to this music is “charming” – I’m love with the whole piece – it feels young and playful and just welcoming. When the beat track comes in after a minute it evokes the kind of vintage video game you might have played in the 90’s. And then the vocal track comes in…and it’s a cute female avatar talking about finding gold or picking locks and generally being cool and badass!
It makes me smile and I’m just buoyed along by the good-natured feel of the whole track – I’m grinning as I write this!
Submitted a few weeks back from one of our new curators Argentinian / Croatian composer Vranko Magas – it has an insane genesis – here’s Vranko himself:
I love living today – it’s awesome. So – stick this on repeat – get a smile on your face and spring in your step and start churning those words out!

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
