JohnT’s track Come Around is an infectious work that is ambient enough to be used as a background, but active enough to be danced to. I typically do not gravitate to dance music (perhaps because I am notoriously shy on the dance floor), but this music is a definite contender for my exercise/workout playlist. (Yes, it may beat out my beloved 80s hair metal for exercise time.)
Musically, it is a loop-based project with a strong emphasis on off-beats, with an underlying extended 3+3+2 harmonic rhythm. The mix varies from a more treble-heavy mix to one where the bass pulses and pushes along. A very loud song, it works well as EDM while being out-of-ordinary enough to be ambient in the right context.
