If you’re reading this, hello, just another wannabe lofi producer here. I want you to familiarise yourself with this image. It’s the face of my first EP.
So what makes this so special? Nothing. I’m just another shitty, self taught beat-maker after all. But there’s so much of my story in this music.
Over two years ago I became ill, and after test after test there were still no results. I was eventually diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It was crippling, and I had to take a year out of my education to recover. In this time, my friends continued their studies and grew up whilst I watched. I still find it so hard. ‘All My Friends Have Gone Away’ is a voicing of my feelings. It feels like they’re gone but they’re not. It’s a voicing of my gratefulness towards my girlfriend, my parents, the healthcare professionals and anyone else who helped me along the way to my recovery.
In all my free time recovering I’ve found motivation in music, and this is the result of that. I’ve found the lofi community so helpful, accepting and warming, and I’ve fallen in love with the beats.
So what I’m trying to say is this: I want ‘All My Friends Have Gone Away’ to help other people as their music has helped me. So familiarise yourself with this image, the music is soon to follow.
