Welcome is a dusty genre-twisting trip into the ancient art of sampling, featuring loose scat solos, wandering sax lines and a sinister dub-breakdown.
Welcome, you’ve stumbled into the world we live in.
Inside the mind of the person who’s listening
Press play and we’re brought into existence,
And only play until the songs have all finished.
Welcome to my world, it’s a world that’s hidden,
Where we worship rhythms until immersed within them.
Inertia kicks in, the loop’s consisting of moods and vision, loose definitions.
Not finishing soon, consume what’s given.
Diligent youth with the bass that kicking.
To invade the system, stay resistant,
the delay is distant, staying twisted.
Vocals close not away in the distance.
That’s the way that I’ll stay in your listens,
If not played, then I’ll fade in an instant,
A kid with a microphone that failed existence.
Evading restrictions, break the conditions.
Never stay in a state of indifference
Contemplate, innovate on traditions,
This beats speaks we all form into thinkers.
Or I could talk to you, draw mental pictures.
Let’s explore move forward through these scriptures,
Find sounds that won’t fit your descriptions,
hidden deep within hip-hop’s encryption.
Centuries spent, countless revisions,
myths, depictions, sounds that go missing.
Samples are held until found by their victims.
Who are succumbed to the sound as their mission
Producers turned mad, manic addictions, every decisions an artist reliving.
Each bar gets cut with precision,
carefully removed from the loop it exists.
The sound the envisioned is slowly brought to fruition,
fraught with conviction. Since the beginning.
Music has the power to change our conditioning.
Thank you for listening.
