Ah, @Dutchbeat, first many thanks for the nice collab and all work you put into this production. ::thumb:: ::thumb::
 There is not much to tell more as this is a song about Albert EInstein and the special relation he had with his violine that he called 'Lina'

The lyrics were basically:

Einstein's Violin

„Lina,  Lina my central spin
you turn my  mindmachine“
and he strokes
his violin

In daydreams united
with Mozart and Bach
composed  cosmos beauty
was drawn  geniuis craft.
Together they solved,
those  guys of germanics,
all problems occured
in quantum mechancis


He fled from Nazis,
who were his haters
 did  impromptu performance
for trick- or treaters
To raise  money for people
with same fate
Mozarts sonatas
in Manhattan he played.

What a delightful collab this turned out to be. And what a beautiful picture @Mo you have made of the only existing photo of the man and his Lina that I know of. I must check the internet to find out if there are more.
A very fine piece of work guys!
Kind regards, Gus

Good morning @LePlongeur , I'm so glad you  are one of those who dares to do a short comment about the song. Thank you so much!
@Dutchbeat  ( i tend to call him lovley Dutcherbutcher now)  ;D  and me  like it and  and we also thought it turned out some pretty interesting after indeed we got in a nicley flow of working and pushing the song forward and bachwards to another.  Was good fun! Or @Dutchbeat?
We are concious about thats it has its cracks and edges left , to me  at least  it  is a footprint of our rather pretty different styles and personalties but without  have bend the other too much ... thats is really very satisfiying and I take that with me  beside a wider insight  about remixing from this  nice collab.
I would be happy if you or other listner would feel motivated to do a little research  :D :D

This is a great fun tune @Mo and the lovely @Dutchbeat and obviously fun to make as well.

I would only suggest making the vocals a little clearer - interesting subject and words which I was able to read as you've posted the lyrics. I wouldn't have been able to what it was about otherwise.

Good luck in the comp!


Hola @Mo y @Dutchbeat

Wow, I love that instrumentation, and when the voices appear it is a fantastic sound complement! The style has so many colors, especially that of freedom ...
I like your collaboration, it is very nice to hear and it makes you dance. It also has a lot of space and atmospheres. The rhythm changes open the door of the unimaginable and then bring us back to Lina full of cosmic melodies.
The end ... as appropriate .... ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley::

However, something had to object, you do not understand what the voices say ... I think like @Jurgen

Many thanks @Jurgen  for listen und sharing your thoughts  :)

@Mora Amaro La Loba you are doing so many kind words! ::heart:: ::heart::

With the clearness of the voice I want explain a bit. Of course we discussed that a bit at early stage too, and I understood it as the voice for Dutchbeat is a stylistc instrumental device in first place.  He mixes it in as an artisically grap and  as he hear the sound of it .  I  totally accept that   :) though there  reamins  a discrepancy  in interest for singers and maybe listeners  if want carry a  little story wrapped in  vocals  also to fit a  special topic f.e.. Still some room to work on it for sure left  entirely.
But anyway,  I want just underline its a kind  of 'style'  and I think all in all it turned out as a really cool mix what Dutchbeat did with the material he got! ;D  ::thumb::

Claro que sí @Mo and @Dutchbeat
As I said, when the voices appear they give a very rich sound, as another instrument playing with melodies, why not?

A big kiss  ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart::

And I can repeat it's a very good track!!! Hmmm Now I remember I and @oorlab will be your competitors....  ::smiley:: ::smiley::

@Mo and @Dutchbeat - what a splendid choice and surprise, Einstein as a quantum Mechanic.
His violin playing preceded the current string theories.  And his standpoint for peace, against Nazi's and atomic bombs is still an example to us all.

Rich sound, as @Mora Amaro La Loba  says. Possibly there are some spots here and there where the delay effects on the singing might be curtailed a tiny wee bit. I like the Pet Shop Boys drive.

This is a great piece.....a seriously good mix of style. I love the way the piece moves @Dutchbeat and I think your vocals work just right as they are @Mo . They impart a sense of mystery and enigma.

What a great Collab @Mo and @Dutchbeat ... the music and Vox entwine to create a musically satisfying whole.
It does feel like it's one of those songs where the voice is an extension of the synths and beat.

Top Job this
