I would just like you to know that it’s about lots of different things, made in lots of different ways.








We are not going in circles, we are going upwards. The path is a spiral; we have already climbed many steps.




Cutting select sentences from BBC news articles is a good game. 






Dubplate business still though... My music is rare, unique, individual. Your mp3?... anyone can have that. My piece is so sharp, it’ll cut your head off! I don’t care about music democracy anymore, I care about music speciality. HAHAHA! 




Time.


No you don’t.








You can go anywhere, anytime, your only limitation is your imagination.




Please take your time. There is so much to see here.

When I grew up I thought everyone would be into jungle and garage tunes but hardly anyone I knew was, in the end.

I thought that was the future once…

Then you notice everything changes, and time becomes less linear… what’s new becomes less important in a way. the past becomes more interesting to explore than the future. Because you weren’t there then and it looks so different from your perspective now.

The tunes become rarer and even completely unknown by your peers. So you find a sense of identity in something that’s more individual to you... More mysterious, more imaginative. Every snap and pop and crackle on the vinyl becomes a recording of time itself. the years etched into the sound of music that you’ve found for yourself, made great by your selection.

That’s why I’ll always dig for old records. Forever and ever.



ETERNITY


‘Everyone’s trying to sell you the future...

But it doesnt exist yet and it belongs to you anyway.’


Strange and beautiful worlds built around geometry, time and desire.
It’s Full of Stars
