In October, when I made this track, I had been in a quite a drought musically and creatively. For a few months I barely even messed around with beats. I lived day by day, tending to my hobbies, working at UMass, and doing whatever kept me the most relaxed. I took the pressure off of myself and began a familiar descent back into the darkness of stagnant habits and cloudy aspirations. This left me torn. I knew that I owed it to myself as an artist , and as a human being, to devote more to my path. This wasn't even 8 weeks from performing 16 successful shows, (One of which in front of around 3k people when I opened for Machine Gun Kelly), getting incredible feedback, and experiencing a profound rebirth of my belief in the journey I'm on. But to be completely honest, It didn't change me. The fear was gone at first. But it began to change form. It coalesced back into my life in other regions.
In the past, when I envisioned those things.....I truly thought they would set me straight.
I believed stage control and presence would give me untouchable confidence.
I thought if I got out and went after It, the red carpet would roll out in front of me, eager for my talent, and I'd run away forever in some fresh 6's smile emoticon
I discovered though, that it isn't the soles in your steps but the SOUL in your steps.
It isn't just to work tirelessly, but to believe.
It isn't just to believe, it is to become.
It is in your intention, it is in your willingness to release yourself from your thoughts and conditioning.
I had made a promise to myself that I would devote my life to harnessing the feelings inside of me. I would study them. I would hammer and forge them into physical existence. Music is an energy we pick up and interpret through our ears. It is a different type of language that connects with spirit. This is the purest, most profound, viewpoint.
I channel not only my thoughts and emotions, but my energy and intentions into these pieces.
"The Underground is symbolic of not only where I am , but where I want to be. A perspective from the coldest darkest depths, looking to an immaculate realm. A realm I have created for myself. A navigable space that invades my daydreams and sparks my heart and stirs my wanderlust.
Nostalgic and mysterious. Extraordinary and free, The Underground awaits. I'll see you there. -Vedo
