Born at a time when the world was in one of the bleakest moments ever. Where the only thing anyone had to entertain themselves was their imagination.
As per the norm, Slotta's music stems from a very emotional place, which was further enhanced by the sudden turn in events all across the world. The worry, pain, joys of surviving yet another day all fed into this new series.
Aptly dubbed "R.A.Y"....it is that small glimmer of hope in the darkest of times.
It is the smile you let out even in your most distraught moment.
It is the heavy sigh you let out after making it through a crazy day
All in all...it is the deeply embedded hope that there is always a RAY of sunshine even in the darkest of tunnels.
May you find healing, may you find solace, may you find yourself once again in the simplest way i know how...through music.
"I Am You – Slotta uses I Am You to paint a kaleidoscope of colours that communicates with merciless acuity the value of kindness and compassion. The merging of unique sounds mirrors our reality – our actions and desires are bound up with the existence of other human beings. Slotta reminds us that his experience is tied to ours; that there is not much virtue in individuality but rather as a member of a greater society. I. Am. You."
