This song is a vibe, called 'The First Time' and is about Mynxy's first time at Shambhala Music Festival and was released on Dancing Donut Records. Awood and Mynxy did a great job at creating a journey with this track, as the track features tons of unique and captivating sounds to grab you into the story as Mynxy talks about her first time at Shambhala. I love the driving bassline and melody that brings this mellow yet groovy vibe to the track and the vocals are great adding this story element to the track. When I first heard the track I was waiting for the next verse to hear more and more until it was over as Mynxy's voice captivates you with the great sound design, as the sounds pull you in. This is a track you don't want to sleep on, its super unique and will definitely be on repeat. You can check out the track and learn more about Awood and Mynxy below!
