Following the example of @ravenmus1c I've decided to upload some older material to Hive as I feel this is very much my primary digital home now and I'd like to share all my music here. Check out her (excellent) first ever song as Raven here: https://peakd.com/hive-193816/@ravenmus1c/kbuxpayu
So I'm pleased to present the official video for Tenacity [Future Never Cut].
It's a collaboration from 2021 with the electronic music producer Primaudia Record who I met through EMA (Electronic Music Alliance.) They are a community of producers and it was where I met @stickupboys who got me into Hive as well as several other excellent musicians and artists you'll find here on Hive - @fatasfunk @nickyhavey @gribbles and @tygertyger.
Tenacity is a track that's been on quite a journey - the main theme starting out as part of my (never released) album length project which was the result of my initial explorations with modular synthesis.
Later, my modular music stems were picked up and sculpted into this track by Primaudia, with his hard hitting drums and production techniques adding a huge amount of energy and resulting in something in a genre we are still struggling to define!
Both Tenacity [Original Version] and Tenacity [Future Never Cut] were released on Electronic Alliance Records, EMA's in house label.

The ominous animated mask in the video is actually Primaudia's online avatar - it's an image based on his paintballing mask!
