Nice posi vibes and certainly something out of left field. The scales around 3:00 panned left are a bit distracting and the last minute meanders for my ear, but there's a cool foundation here. Keep it up!

RA Pete has a rarity so seldom found in todays artists. It is his ability to draw and bring you into his very own consciousness through his music. "What you're thinking is what you attract" is yet another of his incredible tracks that plunk you straight out of where you thought you were or wanted to be and smackbang into HIS state, his world, his sometimes foggy yet always cohere...

RA Pete has a rarity so seldom found in todays artists. It is his ability to draw and bring you into his very own consciousness through his music. "What you're thinking is what you attract" is yet another of his incredible tracks that plunk you straight out of where you thought you were or wanted to be and smackbang into HIS state, his world, his sometimes foggy yet always coherent dreamstate that he lives within. Upon listening to his brilliant album "Spring Cleaning", the word and the sensation of walking around in a dream are spoken of and felt throughout (2 tracks on the album even feature the word dream in their title). His influences can not be summed up by a bunch of bands or artists. His influences are the scents and images he takes in walking down a dark street on a wet hot night, or sitting on a mountaintop peacefully strumming a guitar looking down at the beauty far below. Nick Drake instantly springs to mind with his brilliant acoustic album "Pink Moon". His voice like a clear crisp mountain stream, his words inspired and in need of deep thought to fully discern. RA Pete is such a songwriter as this. Unlike Drake however, RA Pete is not pegged down to one particular genre or style purely because it works so well. He is constantly exploring new soundscapes and feels that are always an emotional experience. Sometimes full of light and beauty, sometimes eerie leaving you almost with a sense of unease afterwards. He is a master of invoking an emotional response, a master of leading you on and into his journey. Unspeakable wisdom, truth and beauty to be found within his songs. The music to soothe and comfort in these dark surreal times we live in. He takes me "there".
