very nice! it builds wonderfully, the instrumentation and sounds/chords used is imaginative and I would buy that.
the only thing for me is, while the singer has a nice voice, his voice sounds too bland and dry/weak compared to the very produced track. had he double tracked it more ala Neil, it would have been so much better. but still very enjoyable.

Love the 909 snare!

He's also made a song based on Domino dancing, Paninaro, and Jean-Michel Jarre's Zoolookologie

I discovered this one a few weeks ago. It is indeed excellent! He does some great videos taking one through his analogue synth collection too, definitely recommended :-)
