  Boys are looking for girls and girls are looking for boys in a time where words like: “trust” or “love” became similar with “hi” or “something”… the passion for a deep search dies everyday nowadays when passion becomes similar with the quickness of taking off your clothes, a relationship is nothing more than a way to present yourself in the society…to be or not to be in a relationship doesn’t affect the behavior of those involved in it anymore. Respect is even more extinct but who needs it? This so called important rule of the human society is caging the individual to express freely on the sexual market as he is supposed to, plus it gives you responsibility and weight in any decision…who needs that?

Superficial To This Word I Say No Pbfl

  Boys should be looking for girls, not for sexual objects with no feelings and personality and girls should be looking for boys, not for just somebody to take them out or just a sexual partner with a body attached to the organ or to the wallet. To do that, the search should be deep, based on real reasons of attraction, common interests, common beliefs not just a physical detail or a fantasy that we must fulfill because we’ve seen it a porn movie.

  Sadly even when the search gets deep and people try hard not to be superficial the result is just as tragic because without knowing it the media and the trends already made them superficial so the words and the actions are not based on true and honest feelings…so the majority of the girls are complaining about boys being selfish pigs and the majority of boys are complaining about girl for being heartless, easy, stupid bitches…fact is you like it like that because it takes the responsibility off your shoulders so you can act and talk anyway you want without getting any blame from the society who…does the same.

   Fallowing that, my questions for you out there are: in stead of being another voice complaining – What do you do to change that? How hard do you try to respect the one beside you? How loyal and faithful are you? How honest? Do you feel you deserve to be treated with respect? If so do you offer it 1st?

  My respond to this is: NO!  Cuz even complaining these days is part of the trend, the music these days teaches you to cheat one-another, hit, spit, curse, shoot each-other…abuse, use, buy and sell one-another … Am I wrong to think about the kids who will come to life in this trend of living? What about the teenagers who grow up on the lyrics and sounds of today?

  Once again back to: NO! Cuz if you were trying the struggle should have been obvious…but fact is there is no struggle for love because “I love you” is used even more than “hello and goodbye” together.

  Superficial – this is the word of our times and all you get out of it is loneliness and pain. To this word I say NO!!

I wrote 8(Perfect) with no other intention but to capture that precise moment when everything is perfect next to your partner, when you feel your love becomes eternal and it has no drawbacks…I wrote exactly what I was feeling in detail from my own life, from my own love story, not thinking about the flow, not thinking about the rest. I got lost in that state of mind and all that fallowed was the chase for the instruments and the sound of it.

It was the most complicated instrumental we ever produced; we argued a lot … me and the Agresiv team back in 2007… I wanted live instruments, they didn’t…so in 2010 I did it in my own way picking the voices for the chorus, the strings, the drums and send it for mastering to Chris Athens(Sterling Sound) maybe one of the most respected names in the industry.

After that it came the video where the job was even more difficult due to the fact that I had a love story and we didn’t know how exactly to present it … so we decided to remain with the “falling in love at 1st sight”…that moment known as being extremely intense, memorable.

The style of the video is short movie, with director and D.O.P. awarded at Cannes Film Festival, professional young actors and full film crew.

  8(Perfect) is a proof of my 100% realness and honesty, I kept nothing hidden, I’ve wrote down my life, my deepest feelings chasing the perfect sound just to capture the emotion that inspired this song.

This track is also a tribute of mine to the old school hip hop love, that vibe of love and respect, that optimistic and direct approach.

This song made me realize I am a happy man.

There is nothing, without God

There is nothing, without pain

There is nothing else but love

In this life, for us, to aim.

To watch or not to watch a TV show where “specialists” are looking for new talents, future artist undiscovered yet, people who are looking for a shot to fame and fortune.

  We didn’t have these kind of shows 30-40-50 years ago and still we had the best artists discovered and signed, most of them leaving behind evergreen classics, works of art, enormous sales, world wide fame without Youtube, satellite radio and so on…

  I watched only one of these shows and then I fallowed the winner’s so called carrier in the music industry…for me it is clear that none of the people “discovered” here will become a great name because none of them is a true artist. Ok, they can have a good selling single or maybe an album due to the industry’s power and promotion plus the wave of popularity after the TV show, but that’s all that it is to it.

To Watch Tv Or Not

  Why do I say that? Well, because a true artist will never bring his creation in front of a jury (to much personality and self confidence), a true artist doesn’t need instant fame, a true artist has an individual race for his message-a unique path, a true artist doesn’t present himself hopeless and weak waiting for some TV show to make him strong, a true artist fights against the main trends of his time, a true artist stands alone, a true artist serves the people not tries to trick them into buying his work, a true artist demands respect for his originality and these contests clearly don’t search for that, a true artist would never betray art and its ways.

  Art is beauty, love, truth, hope and music is maybe even more important than food and friends that’s why you should be looking for true artists not for TV show fame freaks but what’s worse is the fact that they use kids, talented ones, but still kids who are not yet responsible for their actions, they don’t even had the chance to choose singing yet as a career, they are not grown, how many of them will make it? … they have so much work ahead even if they will choose art in the future but still they are just tools for audience…our need to be famous, the vanity hunger, our nobody status, lack of musical knowledge, our weak souls are keys for these kind of TV shows success.

We wish for somebody just like us to become something that we will never have the chance to become just because we don’t know who we are where we stand anymore…we are not all supposed to be famous, do we know what to do with it? Can we handle it? Does it make us better people? Isn’t it just a sickness?

  Ok, a TV show can bring you instant fame but it will never make you an artist so…who do we really want to listen to, famous people or true artists? 

Pbfl Carry Me Out

Carry me out is the result of my radio listening…basically I was sick of those short, no direction, no values, fake and superficial lyrics. I like the sound of 2011, I really enjoy the clearness and the sharpness of today’s recordings but I hate the lyrics so I felt the need to be carrier away from all this. That’s how I got my idea.

   I didn’t write the music that’s why the sound is not as aggressive as I like it but the feeling of the instrumental was inspired by my state of mind. I wrote the lyrics thinking about all that they seem to forget these days, J. Yolo wrote the chorus and I do believe it is a great one.

  The track is easy going, happy, it is not as street as I am, it is not as extreme as I am, it is not as rap as I produce but it is a track with a modern feeling, a track made to compete with all the heavy rotation jams out there.

  I wrote exactly from the heart, I wanted to say things without thinking to much about the flow, this is not a hip hop song

even thou it serves the people as a true hip hop track should. I grew up with hip hop and rap and that can not be removed from my blood. I

always think about what a kid will understand when it plays my song…I don’t want them to get lost even more than they already are, I want them to feel my love and respect, my devotion towards the main human values and my ability to fight for it.

“I got song

And everybody free to play

I got a heart

And everybody free to stay”
