Gabe loves depressing '90s rock. My initial intention was to make something like that for him. One night, though, there was a crazy thunderstorm going on in my area. I was noodling around with some rhodes piano sounds and stumbled onto a very Portishead/Goldfrapp vibe and just went with it. I quite like the way this turned out, actually!

Most of the time I'm drinking coffee.
