HOLAA Loves: Feeling Brand New (an audio compilation)

Artist/ Mixologist: MremboSafi

Medium: Audio compilation

Genre – Pop

Length: 37:17

We asked for a few words on what this mix was about and the artiste got lyrical on us.

“you know I got that futuristic fire.”

I value the benefit to regenerate and feel anew. much like the phoenix, it is possible to build your own pyre, ignite a fire and bury the dirt and experiences of the past – whether beautiful or repulsive. To wake up to a hope of a glorious rising after death is freedom. To not linger, but to carry on. The reward of the confidence to start a new. To make new rules worth breaking. With knowledge that all this is temporary.
