Random thoughts and topics that pop into Lui's mysterious head.-- crowzfx --

Music. Vibrations with varying bouts of power to create a vast and dynamic range of sounds; coupled with lyrics and a highly skilled audio engineer, you have it. Many genres. Many meanings. Many styles. However, it is all music; even if you don't think so.
To some music is just a past time, to some it's just a wakeup call. To me it's life. Having the ability to listen to music unlocks a new dimension for me that influences concentration and relaxation. It's like a superpower but without the outfit. A high without the substances. A new platform above reality that I can use to channel my focus into what I need but on the other hand, to blank out the world and to relax.
The weird thing is when you try to describe this concept to others who don't feel the same. They think you've gone nuts; that you can envisage a new dimension without limits or hindrances with just pure power and ability allowing you to artistically define, map, produce, write, draw, think, whatever it is, just on an exponential scale.
All this glued together is powered by just music and letting your mind wonder free; something a lot of people can't or won't do. Don't stress, don't worry, don't overthink as it's all life and life is a journey that we all have shit thrown at us. Some good shit. Some bad shit. But ultimately, it's about how you ride through the stream of shit, that makes you, you!
Take a step back and put on one of your favourite tunes, crank it a little louder than you'd normally listen to it, feel that 'rhythm and rhyme' and whilst listening to it ask yourself, 'what is music to me?' ...
