After hearing about Ryan's passing I shared most of your guys' sorrow and wished my best to the crew and his family, but I knew that wasn't all I would do. I immediately went to work with a beat in mind and an aesthetic floating in my brain-space. That being, namely, Kavinsky or Daft Punk's more laid-back groove.
Whether or not I succeeded isn't the point. My point is that it's gonna be a real rough stretch of Tuesdays for... well, I don't know how long. Thanks for the memories Ryan, and here's a brief tune that I wrote to remember how much joy you put in my life and others' without really understanding how special you are yourself.
Much love and Respect to the crew and to everyone who knew him personally. My grief is but an iota compared to what you all must be feeling.
