D.T. - Upgrade (produced by Flashbeats)

I wrote and recorded this song a couple weeks ago but, it seems like this was the perfect time to release it. Life imitating art and all. The Winnebago County EP will be available for pre-Order later today and with the pre-order the download for Upgrade will be made available. The Winnebago County EP will be out May 5th 2014. Not sure about much right now except for this music shit.

The Winnebago County EP

Music has always been an outlet. The creation of music has always been something I could depend on. No matter who was coming and going in my life, how secluded I felt, how low I got at times, I always look forward to putting that pain, or loneliness, or struggle into something beautiful, permanent, and was MINE. 

I feel like the one thing I’ve been showed the most in this past 5 years of my life is that so few things can truly belong to a person. I think I’ve been looking all my life for somebody or something to be mine.

I put all of myself into my passions. It works with writing. I put all of my in to writing something and I’m rewarded by having something that I believe in. Having something that wouldn’t exist without me. Something I can share with people with no fear of it being stolen, copied, or envied. Any negativity shown on it is deflected by me knowing what I’ve put in and what it’s meant to me to having something to put myself into. 

I say that to say this. I’ve loved and lost things that I thought were mine. Memories I thought were mine that were destroyed by things I had no control over. I didn’t make that memory, that time made that memory. The memory belongs to Time not to me. I’ve had different kind of relationships end or be altered because of things I didn’t control. The relationship wasn’t mine. It belonged in whatever portion you want to split it into with me and the other person or people in the relationship. it was ours. 

The dark, twisted, painful, chaotic, lie that we all call life can be painted with a beautiful and flawless brush onto a peaceful blank canvas. The hunger I record with becomes food for thought once it’s paired with the proper and thoroughly sculpted beat. What comes out is MINE. It can’t be tainted by someone else’s actions or feelings. It can’t be tainted by me making a mistake or not living up to expectations. It is what it is. It stands alone as piece of me. The Winnebago County series is MINE

Winnebago County The Mixtape came out at the beginning of 2014 when the winter was here. It captured where I was at at that moment of my life. Winter has come and gone and with the arrival of the new season comes a new soundtrack.

Thoughts After Drinks

I wish I could find the right combination of words to fix all the problems that I’m dealing with. In movies it’s always that one scene where somebody says all the right things and it’s like all the pain and strife that was going on before just disappears. I don’t have those words. All I have is pain and strife now. All I feel is this void. I have days where I can pretend it’s not there but, eventually the phone rings or a text comes through or I watch a movie and I’m reminded of the void that I’m living in. I open the door and hope that all the things I desire will be behind it but, instead I find nothingness. Darkness. Void. They say that time heals all wounds but, time has just made the wound scab over. The pain is still felt when pressure is applied. When I forget the wound is there something always seems to breakthrough and remind me of it.

Time is moving fast these days. I’m trying to cherish every minute. The come up is the most beautiful part of the joureny in my opinion. 2009 -2012 was the struggle. 2013 was the groundwork. 2014 will be the come up. It was hard bein silent while everybody in the city and the game was making noise. We making noise now. It was hard going unseen when everybody in the game was being shown. You See Us Now!!!

As a man, I’m flesh and blood: I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol … as a symbol, I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.
