about

"State of being" EP has four chapters which recorded and filmed live at the studio in Berlin.

1. Se Love - (youtu.be/lARZx4xL55s)
2.Wanna Getta know you (youtu.be/6igJxtJim-4)
3.Damn That Dream (youtu.be/xxC2tbiahX4)
4.Advice (youtu.be/DxNJq3NwlKE)

After few years of producing myself, I decided to take a step forward and leading a band with my originals beats.

Now, when everything is together I can tell frankly, I was simply lucky to be surrounded by so many great artists.

We had only two rehearsals before this session so during the session everybody's said "The water is deep, Lamotta" which was true, but I kept smiling and saying "Let's see how it goes".
I had no expectations but a clear plan how we can make it work.

When I called it "State of being" I meant Love, Love as a state of being. It's not something that you do or something that come into your life - it is something that you become.

I wanna dedicate this EP to-

Track Name: Se Love
intro-
Well, if you're standing on this ground
I want you to know that you got a gift
and this gift called life
so just be grateful for that

You know, I'm not that strong
I got no guiding principles or that sharp tongue
But for some reason, I'm here to say
You r beautiful in your own way

A lovely sound beyond words and shadows
Dancing together, opening windows
We gotta face the music, cuz we're just a grain of sand
There is a tree that wants us to understand it

so hey say hey yeah

Reaching a compromise is a safe star
tell me what do u feel, not about your shitty car
dreaming alone but living together
Love is the sign, then we can make it better
Track Name: Wanna Getta Know Ya *Dilla tribute*
Wanna Getta Know Ya - (Soul vibe by J Dilla)

I wanna get to know you, get to know you Basil
I hope I get to know you, get to know u baby

But I don't like playing games with love
We don't need to play games with love

so if u feel it right now tell the truth
if u don't feel it now tell the truth
or if u got another girl just tell the truth
cause I would much rather hear the truth

Yeah

I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
I would much rather hear the truth
Track Name: Damn That Dream
Damn that dream I dream each night
you say you love me and u hold me tight
but when I awake you're out of sight

Damn that dream
Damn that dream

Damn your lips damn your eyes
they lift me high above the moonlit sky
Then I tumble out of paradise

Damn that dream
Damn that dream

The rocks gonna shatter, not because of the age
It won't be a matter when we've crossed our edge
your mind gonna clatter, not because of the rage
It could be better to let the birds fly from the cage now
my soul almost shatter and not because of the rage
it is a matter when you cross by the hedge
your mind gonna scatter and not because of the rage
so let the birds fly from the cage

Damn that dream I dream each night
you say you love me and u hold me tight
but when I awake you're out of sight

Damn that dream
Damn that dream

Damn that dream and bless it too
cause without that dream I never would have you
But it haunts me and it won't come true
Damn that dream
Damn that dream
Track Name: Advice
you don’t have to take that advice
at least knowing i’ve tried without thinking twice
spending time to charge with meditation
could fill this plant with positive

you don’t have to take that advice
at least knowing i’ve tried without thinking twice
spending time to charge with meditation
would fill this plant with positive

class differences will never matter
whether you’re rich or poor you gotta do it better
integrities power can make us free

class differences will never matter
rich, poor- we gotta do it better
is there some lights in the dark, there must be
