Trying out chill style
Anyone doing chill with Reason these days? Sure fits with the genre nicely:

This one is like a storm passing over Ibiza.

It's really nice John, very pro-sounding......and yes, very chilled :-))

I like the acoustic space in it.

I've never even heard of it. Seems in the last 5 years about 50 genres came out lol.

Sounds cool

Got that classic jfrichards ethno-percussion, very nice when the piano comes in. Very funky chill indeed, seems like a slightly different side of you with all the fx and atmosphere, a side I like.

Thanks for the nice feedback everybody. It is a little of a new direction for me. I have an XM radio in my Solstice, so I stop by the beach with the windows down and listen to XM53, called the Chill station, with people like Moby, Bombay Dub Orchestra, and Massive Attack. I'm noticing that these people are going all over the place compositionally, with a very wide musical palette, and it all sounds very much like Reason. Almost no musical style is off-limits in Chill, but it has to be smooth, relaxing, funky, and melted together like liquid. It's actually not so easy to make it because it can't be boring like elevator jazz, repetitive like house, trite like pop, or jarring like funk jazz.
