This article should have been released in September 2015.
“There and Back Again” is a track I wrote on and off over the course of several years, during which many impactful life events occurred – getting older, the deaths of family members, the end of old relationships and the beginning of new ones. It was always called “There and Back Again” – even from the very first version of the project, and the lead riff arrangement was the first thing written.
The original mix of “There and Back Again” never saw its own standalone release, it was signed to Stamina Records (whose website no longer exists, but the label is still active on various stores like Beatport, and still active on social media) and it featured on “Freeform Family” by Rebuild Music, A-Tech Records and Stamina Records in 2015 and was subsequently remixed by A.B (Stamina Records) in 2016. The album “Freeform Family” was limited release and is no longer available to buy new.
It was subsequently released on the unmixed compilation album “Stamina Summer Slammers, volume 5“, and is currently available to buy from Toolbox Digital, or for streaming on Amazon Music or Apple Music.
Here is the original clip released by Stamina Records on SoundCloud!
