Estonian producer Lumele just released a few days ago the perfect tune for our Holiday season. The track is called “Thinking Bout You” and was released by Multicolor Records , one the most promising new record labels out there.
What I personally like the most about this tune are the warm and chilling vibes and also the message that emerges from it, wherever our dearest ones are, we are thinking about them and we wish they were with us. The main attraction the track represents the guitar fills which are basically dictating the tempo, being sustained by a solid bass line and a chilling groove. Vocals are bringing also a great contribution to the overall vibe and despite the fact that they are repeating for the entire duration the track, they are very good placed to bring the desired balance with the instrumental part. Pads and warm chords are completing the production this amazing track!
