No children or trees here, but it's sure nice. Allthough I would
shorten the track a bit.

I like obviously sequenced drums in many cases. But here the drums
have an entirely different feel from the piano. A bit slow for that, but
kick an claps still say "party" to me. That doesn't make the fact they're
sequenced the problem, since drums can be programmed to match any kind
of feel.

from Mariah Carey and to analyze the drums regarding sound and rhythmic
