"Evolution of a Shrug" - Produced by Dutchyyy
From the 2 hour Cassette "Chill Gawd, Chill"
Created October 2014 while living in Upstate New York on the Sam's Point Nature Preserve. Originally created with the intent of being released on "The Uproot". It was one of four songs I pulled last minute to include on "Chill Gawd, Chill" to showcase more current music since the Majority of Chill Gawd, Chill was created 2012-2013.

The theme & inspiration of the song was in line with most of music created for "The Uproot" which was rebelling against the current Meta and Trend of the time (which is still relevant) of switching up to making more short, upbeat, dance type music. I have nothing against short songs, upbeat or dance music. I make that type of music as well but the majority of people at the time were pivoting so hard from their originally identity, that I couldn't tell who's music was who in a blind listening test and I was pretty vocal about it which didn't earn me any "cool points" haha. I missed hearing music that rewarded the patient ear with slow builds and subtle changes and told a story, so I decided to stop worrying about what anyone else was creating and be the change I wanted to see. This was around the time I decided to Live & Let Live and just focus on creating what I wanted to express and tuned out all the noise.
Deep Isolation + Heavy Introspection = "I don't care" Do you, have fun, I'll be over here evoking & evolving. PeacePeaceGawd
and thus "Evolution of a Shrug" was born.
