part of the Adult Swim Singles Program and now out WORLDWIDE for the world to hear :) I recorded the vocals in the intimacy of my apartment rather than in my studio, sometimes if makes me feel extra creative just to work from my house, especially in in winter! I used a pitch-shifting loop of a recording of an Ahoka (west African percussion) that I recorded in Abidjan. This contrast to the winter vibes of Berlin is what keeps me motivated in some ways. It just takes the resonance of a room in Abidjan and combines it with sonic characteristics of stuff recorded in my house in berlin. .... it this paradox and hybrid culture that keeps me inspired. It could have been a sample, but it aint. And the story of the sound behind it is actually important to me as a form of spirituality. Ableton's Labyrinth is the main synth that I have used on here and i actually love the sound.


slow down, take your time , it will be ok 
slow down, take your time , it will be ok 
slow down, take your time , it will be ok 

is it really worth it
is it really how i want it
cant be sure 
what i need
but im starting to feel
hidden in the bushes 
were my feelings in the corner
been neglect in my needs
but im starting to heal
left here for the slaughter 
coz nobody wanted daughters 
that could think for themselves 
and be who they wanna be 
smothered with voices 
of the others without choices
hushed with luxury dreams 
coz the choices aint real

so slow down, take your time, it will be ok
slow down, take your time , it will be ok 
slow down, take your time , it will be ok
