“Proper old school vibes by Tom Conrad. Absolution with beautiful vibes equals Loop 7 / the theme or even ‘the whistle song’ by Frankie Knuckles. Ascendance comes along with nice chord progression and funky groovy beats. 10/10”
VAN BELLEN (SONY / BEDROCK / HOOJ CHOONS / POSITIVA)
“Lovely Work Here… :-)”
FINEST WEAR (LARGE MUSIC / NORDIC TRAX)
“The whole concept, message and awareness in this EP it’s spot on… the productions and chords are nice… its time that we all bring the awareness that SPIRIT guides us and we just need to look inside deep inside our HEARTs..”

Release #115 on Adaptation Music sees the return of Tom Conrad with a new EP, this one a deep and thought provoking two tracker entitled ‘The Spirit Guide EP’.
Influenced by the early Detroit sound along with Chicago heavyweights such as Larry Heard and Glenn Underground, Tom wanted to create something deep and meaningful, some deep house with soul to express some feelings of recent times and came up with ‘The Spirit Guide EP’. Opening the EP is ‘Absolution’, a piano led affair with experimental raw beats, sweeping pads and strings, infectious stabs and a classic bass line to match. The message behind these tracks is one very personal to Tom on his spiritual journey and leads on to the ‘B Side’ track ‘Ascendance’. An even deeper track with very similar influences to the first, this one has hypnotic elements of early techno fused with deep atmospheric house complete with a huge sub bass line and builds up into uplifting Detroit style sweeping chords, with an overall ‘warehouse’ feel to it. If ever you wanted to know what deep house is, this is it right here..
All tracks written, arranged and produced by Tom Conrad.
