My Process (FF 77)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



I take it back in time with my process
Slow it down in the midst of technological progress
Chopping with a two decade old machine
Might seem arduous but nah it’s just flavor to me
A labor of love making money is not the motive
Say it was I would’ve never have made it up to this moment
I create for the sake of creation
For my it’s like taking a breath, I’m never scared there’ll be no oxygen left
The vinyl makes a mutation
Once it’s sampled in it’s new food for creation for future generations
Under the tutelage of greats that came before us
Music is as ancient as the roots that make a forest
It’s always changing like the seasons are
Get stuck in your ways it pass you by just like a speeding car
And that’s just fine until my time run out
I’ll be strolling down the roadside of life with my thumb out
