This piece was produced soon after OUT WITH THE NEW, starting its life as the soundtrack for a college student animated short (one that was never completed). I needed a track with distinct and varying elements that were ripe for a visualized representation, and the combination of Breakwater and dBlue's Glitch effect (which was relatively fresh and new at the time) provided the perfect set.
Though the animated short never surfaced (through a combination of inexperience and "this project is way too big for my skills"), the track laid down an upbeat, danceable ending to what I consider to be a decent-length album project. I learned a lot about music production, and the experience gained is continually applied to my works today.
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO "RETAIL"
