Stu Kelly - Jag Minns
I began this song sometime in 2019 with a concept in mind. I wanted to create something which reflected the quote "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". The track was to begin and end rather somber, but liven up towards the middle. I wanted something which reflects how you'd think back at certain times or people, perhaps ones that you have loved and lost. Initially, you may be sad that they are not there with you, but then you think of all the great times you had, bringing you much needed happiness in the time of despair.
Why the Swedish title?
A working title for the track was 'Reminisce' but I felt that already had a few lofi releases under that name so in order to create some diversity I had the title translated. Whilst it's not a direct translation, it was close enough that it matched the vision of the track.
Balancing personal projects with client work can be a challenge, so for this release I wanted simplicity. With the song being melancholic, I wanted some visuals to portray a scene of loneliness. Night time is most often when I think of the past, lost in my own trail of thought.
