The 20th release on Cosmic Elements is an 80s inspired track from Tom Conrad featuring Andy Compton on guitar duties.
Lush chords, atmospheric pads, dreamy keys, solid beats and synth bass are layered with a superb guitar solo from Andy Compton (The Rurals) and take you back to the nostalgic 1980s, arguably the finest era for music overall. This track has summer written all over it.
Tom and Andy combine once again after their ‘Textures EP’ release in 2020, the remixes of which will be released within the next month or so.
Track Written, Arranged and Produced by Tom Conrad. Guitar solo by Andy Compton.

SPIRIT OF HOUSE (REVIEWS)
Adaptation’s 121st release is a deep, smooth and funky soulful house track from Tom Conrad entitled ‘Soul Protocol’.
The aptly named ‘Soul Protocol’ is Tom’s second soulful release of 2022 which is an ode to the late 70s and early 80s soul sound with smooth chords and keys, sublime rhodes piano, funky bass line and two distinct vocal messages within the track. This release follows on from the popular ‘Love Satisfaction’ which was a top #20 track on U.S download site Traxsource.
This is Tom’s 7th release so far in 2022 following on from releases on HIVE Label, Ginkgo Music, TOSNC and Adaptation Music with many more on the way under his various aliases which include both Thylacinus and Caliorange, with his first ever vinyl album due for summer release.
Track written, arranged and produced by Tom Conrad.
