    Reduce Reuse Recycle. Usually a good philosophy, though perhaps not so much when applied to songwriting. When I was finishing this track up, I was listening to it in the context of my other recent efforts and came to the realization that many of my rhythms and syncopations in the chord changes and synth lines across several of these songs were very similar, if not almost entirely the same in some cases.

    I liked how this track turned out, so I kept things the way they were, but it did dawn on me that I do need to come up with some new grooves while not on auto-pilot. Hence the name of this track.

    Everything was tracked in NanoStudio on the iPad, with several sounds being sampled from ThumbJam and Sunrizer and then further manipulated in NS. I also wanted to thank Ptero on the NanoStudio forums for providing a fantastic piano sound for NS, which utilizes the new slicing feature to mimic a multi-sampled piano.
