If you put the song titles together, it makes a statement. “Sometimes I still dream aggressive thoughts about my motion, but the wisest ways to move forward always guides me towards changing not my intent, only my path.”
LONE started working on SISD in 2012 after a couple fairly successful years as both a member of Hinx Jones and Beats & Breakfast, and also as a remix producer. After putting out project after project, he wanted to get back to the essence of making music for himself, and he decided to start over and try some new things. This included experimenting with different programs and sounds.
Sometimes I Still Dream’s intent, at the most rudimentary level, was LONE wanting to get excited about making music for himself again. He wanted a growing in sound that ultimately was different and innovative. The entire album is themed, sequenced to flow together, and takes you on a 32 minute sound journey into experimental grooves and thoughts. About 90% of the project is original, meaning that all of the sounds you hear down to the custom percussion was made by him.
It’s never too late to innovate. It’s never too late to start over. It’s never too late to dream.
I guess this kind of means that even though sometimes I just want to power through life and take what seems to be the easy route towards whatever others may see as happiness, I always eventually realize that I have already defined my goals and know what fulfills my life. It’s a struggle sometimes to believe that you’re being innovative or that you know what you’re doing, especially when there’s so much around you pushing you to be normal. Sometimes I might have to readjust my route to personal success, but I can’t compromise who I am and what I want to do within. So, ‘sometimes I still dream’ about things I don’t have yet, but I’m reminded that I will always attain what I’m meant to. And sometimes, I still try to dream like a kid dreams, that anything is possible. That’s kind of what this means. Hope you like the project. – Lonegevity
