I usually try to post artists that have an appeal to the everyday person.
(meaning I don’t post too much “off-the-wall” content)
That being said, that is quite the extremely boring and safe way to run a blog so I have decided I won’t continue to save face for those who aren’t as open with their music tastes.
As much as I like ambient/chill music and the general upbeat/positive feelings that accompany a lot of the popular electronic stuff you hear at local shows or even festivals; there is a darker side to all of us.
The grittier, less-refined versions of us that we attempt to hide from everyone…the side we keep hidden away in the shadows and torn out pages of journals that we never share, fearing the realities that may come from the judgements of our friends, loved ones, and worse than them, ourselves.
Maybe it’s time to face that part of us that we refuse to give light to. Coming face to face with all the aspects we wish we didn’t see when looking in the mirror, choosing to illuminate our preferred parts instead. We are not only good or bad, we are not always right or wrong, we are both the yin AND the yang, the highs and the lows, the happy and the sad.
Music is not always uplifting. Sometimes it’s angry, sometimes it’s depressing. Sometimes it’s just some crazy alien sounds unlike anything your ears have ever experienced before. Art is something that makes you feel. And as long as you feel something, rest assured that it’s working.
LEViT∆TE is an artist I turn to when I choose to embrace my dark side rather than run the opposite way. His music is bass-heavy and heartfelt, with massive breakdowns and dark undertones that take you on an emotional journey from start to finish and somehow always leaves me with a sense that everything will work itself out in the end. Thanks for reading, enjoy.
