I just went through my spam folder looking for some unrelated shit when I stumbled over an older Anticon. newsletter inviting me to commemorate the life of Alias. Had to search the web to find out he died of a heart attack three months ago.
I'm so thrown off the roof right now, this is too surreal. Fuck, Muted was amongst the four very first records I ever copped, I bought my very first samplers because this guy and Jel inspired me that much, I spent half of my waking life between 20 and 27 listening to his peerless beats, I don't even know where to begin ...
Rest easy, old pal, you're missed sorely.
Intake ambiance a tool for meditation
Progressing towards the clouds with at whom I am complete
Defeat the chains that restrain an eager sensation
Equal balance in and out, all inhibitions shall deplete
It seemed like a fairy tale on that day twelve years ago when the remnants of two legendary great bands went on stage before me. It had poured the whole day and afternoon, but right as the first chords to Black Hole Sun where strung the clouds pried open just enough to let a bundle of rays through to enlight the stage and twenty thousand people. And just as the song was over everyone, struck in awe, embraced the returning rain.
Thank you, Chris Cornell, for that special moment and all the ones before.
