... "If you're living a story, it may as well be the best story... it´s a good framework for navigating your life. And it works across space and time allowing you to collaborate with other adventurers in the epic story"
Akira the Don returns for the 1 year anniversary podcast! Back in April last year, during the start of what has turned out to be an eventful year globally, we sat down to kick off the podcast with the great DJ, producer and creator of the Meaningwave to talk life stories. How have things been? What have we learnt? What might we do differently? Are we living in a techodelic simulation that only requires us to pay attention and take responsibility for our reality? How are we doing as a species anyway and why does it matter?
Akira is one of the most creative and interesting figures in the music world today. You may have heard of him through his podcast appearances with Jordan B Peterson or via his Meaningwave albums that back lyrics from inspirational figures of the past and present day with low-fi beats and glitchy graphics. His work cuts through time and musical tradition by infusing multiple genres and techniques into sounds that not only inspire action and responsibility, but infuse the listener with a philosophically calm optimism for this world we all live in.
DJ & I are glad to have Akira as the official Emptiness Project DJ and can only imagine how a live outdoor set in the desert would play out during future EP events in the US. We will make this collaboration happen, but in the meantime, check out Akira on your favorite social media channel and see what happens when you let the beats go through you.
Enjoy the episode and make sure to follow us on IG for updates on new projects. Thanks for your support and if you could leave a review and share the podcast with your friends that would be a huge help. Stay safe and share your experiences.
