The album features previous releases such as the 2016 progressive anthem “Set My Mind” which features an infectious vocal riff combined with bouncy string pad melodic line. “Oceans” features Liu Bei and is one of the more ethereal and chill tracks of the album – reminiscent of a calming stroll on the beach. “The Call” features Doe Paoro on vocals and is a deeper track that infuses elements of R&B and even dubstep (the bass line towards the end of the track is a dirty wobble inspired riff). “Slam” is an absolute progressive banger that utilizes counterpoint between the bass lines and the string pads – this is definitely a dance floor hit. “Diamond Dust” is a perfect example of blending classical influences with electronic dance music – it is riddled with beautiful string melodies, piano accompaniment and light percussion. The final track of the album is titled “Tuesday Maybe” is the longest one on the album and begins with a repetitive synth riff that is soon joined by a spacey vocal hook and slowly establishes an extremely dancey groove.

Tuesday Maybe as a whole, is heavy on the side of implementing string pads and orchestral motifs throughout – the album is well developed as a combination of dance and classical elements, and is one you should definitely listen to!
