Innovation and successfully embracing the entrepreneurial spirit can, at times, prove to be quite difficult. Set backs, obstacles, exhaustion, and sheer frustration can break even the most tempered spirits tested. But, within the adversity experienced during these moments a third element arises from fire and brimstone- Character. Some wise words would instruct you to “Forget your self in the moment.” But, with time, the exact opposite may apply. A time may arise when the right answer isn’t the clearest one and you may be better suited in forgetting the moment in your self. Come to think of it, this whole thought process boils down to the question of “within you or without you?” I suppose that is the true question… Good Luck.
Pick 1: Nakagin – Snow Statue
I want to believe Nujabees fully realized the enormously influential beacon he would place on the map, but I don’t think thats the case. The phenomenon is akin to Dilla’s influence on Hip-Hop. I see it everyday I dig for new music and it goes without saying I love it. Some do it better than others while maintaing their individuality, like Nakagin.
Pick 2: Blood Diamonds – Grin
I can’t quite put my finger on the spirit of this track, but it seems as if Blood Diamond has conjured a spirit of old in a bionic body of new. A colorful new benchmark is set with its layered synth work and haunting vocal presence all beautifully tied together through the triumphant synth lead. Enjoy.
