We must choose between the pain of having to transcend oppressive circumstances, or the pain of perpetual unfulfillment within them, the pain of growth or the pain of decay. We will experience pain either way. When the options are highlighted in this manner, there can only be one rational course of action.Paul John Moscatello (via hyperdimensionalkittens)
I made this months back, didn’t think I would ever release it. A friend of mine hit me up asking if I had any songs that I might be interested in putting towards this compilation for charity. He told me youredm was putting together a collection of tunes to be sold to help Bridges For Music fundraise for a township in South Africa.
I wrote this song to make people feel good and this seemed like an apt way to put it out. If you feel like donating to the cause/picking up this track, follow the link here.
I’ve been following this guy ever since I found him mistakenly searching for madeon. He’s got his own style that’s so well defined he hops across genres without losing his own distinct sound. Spaced out low bassy vibes with crisp percussion.
This is the standout track off his EP Love the Machine. The whole thing is worth a listen.
Failure is no longer real to me. All that exists between what I have and what I want is time - time being a function of my focus, intensity, and strong devotion to progress and improvement.
The challenge now is to produce the living narrative. To be dynamic and efficient. To love freely and give myself generously. To invest my energy, effort, and ingenuity into permanent infrastructure.
Patience is the friend of the wise and faith is the child of dedication.
I must hold fast to both…
