THE EXPERICMENTAL EP

The #Expericment series is (almost) over. I’m not sure whether 4.0 is happening or not, it is still a possibility though. As for the 3 episodes, I hope that you enjoyed and learned as much as I did about the challenges in the industry especially when it comes to the live scene. I’m yet to share the videos of the latest episode.

While producing these shows, I continued to do what I love the most- writing, and I managed to record a few tracks. So I thought I’d release them as a compilation. So consider this a taste of what I’m cooking. Ladies and gents, behold FARAWAY, one of the tracks on The Expericmental EP. But before you press play, may I tell you a little story about how this track came about? Well, it all started with a tweet. 

Next thing you know, I’m writing on the beat then recorded my voice with the phone and emailed the wav file to MGJ. He mixed it, mastered it, I transferred the money over Western Union, he emailed the track and BOOM >> FARAWAY – 1KEY

LYRICS

[Intro]
I heard a voice from the underground telling me sky is the limit
J’ai rit, mon pays est synonyme avec l’univers, c’est quoi une limite?

[Verse 1]
The reflexion of my soul in the ocean of my poetry
Tel un chêne resistant aux chaines des scies electriques
Never go down without a fight, inkotanyi state of mind
C’est Le Retour du Cobaye, cette fois ci avec un teint black
Role-reversal that’s the Experiment with a C
Universoul je suis, je vous l’avait deja dit jadis
In a trilingual piece but y’all too slow to notice
Mais puisque la répétition est la mère de l’apprenti_sage, here you go
“Ndi umuvu sinkeneye impushya zanyu z’ingendo
Je suis trop fort pour être contenu par vos ports
I’m a part of a bigger system than yours, I am universal”
Je slam les portes du tabernacle sans aller à l’église
I’m a vegan on porc who got beef with missionaries
Vos artistes se trahissent à la radio pour un minimum de hits, que des wannabies
I dropped an album, you picked up two dictionaries
Je vous garanti que le prochain, vous en parlerez à vos petits fils
Butterfly effect in space and time, futuristic classics
Je suis tellement en avance que c’est dans le sens inverse que j’écris ma iv
This is actually one of my tweets

[Hook]
The writing is on the wall 
clair comme l’eau de roche
Tell me what’s a whistle blow
A un sourd qui se remplit les poches 

[Verse 2]
Yesterday bushman, today bourgeois
O Citadin mythomane bourré de joie
The bait of power grip seems irresistible
Libertin, dans ta chute libre, tout te parait si beau
The Gods Must Be Crazy when you’re on high on Coke
Comme c’est triste que ma musique te soit glauque
You want me to make you jump like the Maestro in Humain A L’Eau
T’es ignorant ou tu fais semblant de ne pas écouter les paroles?
Vers à moitié vides pour les pessimistes
Glass half full for the optimistic
Ça semble smart mais c’est fou, faux et fictif
It’s simply fifty-fifty to the realist
Dans la vie tout est question de perspective
Third Eye as first tattoo, my view is 360
Je m’interroge sur tout, surtout introspectif
Outrovert, I’m too brutal if you can’t take criticism
C’est avec un cœur ouvert qu’on écoute un lyriciste
If I disturb the comforted and comfort the disturbed, then anonymously my art is as good as Banksy’s
Traitez moi de crazy mais le jour où vous comprendrez mes lyrics
You’ll appreciate the genius in this son of a spear
Je l’avais déjà posté jadis dans une réplique à Mani, je le redis “With my pen, every day I write my destiny.”

[Hook]
The writing is on the wall 
clair comme l’eau de roche
Tell me what’s a whistle blow
A un sourd qui se remplit les poches

[Outro]
Desiderata… I found my boost, I just hope that you too find yours
Faut beaucoup de cran pour accomplir de grandes choses
At the end of the day, you are who you believe you are
Moi je suis une lueur d’espoir dans le noir même si certains ne voient qu’un youvoi
I’m too far away but still put your shades on, ta vue est dans ma zone

So that #Sexpericment did happen as promised and yo! It was damn hot! Sexy and a half. I enjoyed myself. Ahem! I owe its success to the die-hard fans (Wankers) both on these virtual streets and in the real world. You are the real deal. I’m gonna name a few if you don’t mind. Thank you Daniela, Murielle, Nash, Poupoute and everyone who always represent. I got mad love for y’all. My favorite part of the show was being next to Alpha, the stage manager on #Expericment 3.0, and watch the beautiful souls that are Natacha Muziramakenga, Lamel Shaw, Tony Cheryl, Barbrah, Angel Mutoni, DopeGurl and Sharon Bayingana slay. I mean that delivery, shall we talk about it? And the amazing band, did you feel what I felt? I’m grateful for Isumbabyose who always goes the extra mile to make sure we have quality footage and editing. I love you my man and wish you success. Ngutuye ka karirimbo ka Meddy “Ntacyo nzaba!” Pose, the film and photography company, also represented. Thank you Iba. A big thanks to the management of The Manor and Mambo for providing the space; Malik, thank you for the food and refreshments during rehearsals that happened at Another Cat studio. The energy was up at all time. Last but not least, I wanna thank you all who would kill to attend the show but are outside Rwanda while many of my friends haven’t attended any. I believe a time will come when the show comes to you. You get me and it feels great.
Like I said on the show, I am not sure the #Expericment 4.0 (Finale) will happen as I am completely tapped out. So bad that we had to fundraise during  the show so the band can get paid. We collected some but we’re still short. So if you wanna contribute, please don’t hesitate. You have my number.
All in all, my heart is filled with gratitude. It’s been an interesting journey of discoveries and I still have hope that we can pull off the grand finale. Until then…
Take care of yourselves and yours.
Thank you
#1key #1Love
