Alpha 9 – ‘The Purpose Is You’
“It’s hard to find words that would outline the importance of this track to me. I’ve been nurturing this idea for a long time but making a song based on some of your worst life experiences and memories is very tough. Yet, it’s an extremely important subject that needs much more attention and awareness so I want to share it with as many people as possible. Depression and anxiety are real and it’s terrifying. I went through severe depression myself a few years ago, I saw my friends going through the same struggle and sadly, some of them will never come back. But there was something that gave me a lot of hope and inspiration to make this song. It was messages from my fans, who were sharing the stories of them fighting depression. For some of them, music was the last boundary before they would be gone forever. I wanted to make this record as a reminder to myself and to anyone in need or going through dreadful times in their lives. Even in the moments when we feel the lowest and we see no reason to go on living, there is always someone or something worth living for. And beyond all, there is always a purpose: the person that you see in the mirror.”— Alpha 9 on ‘The Purpose Is You’

Purple Disco Machine – ‘Opposite Of Crazy (feat. Bloom Twins)’
“‘Opposite Of Crazy’ was a crazy experience from the very start. During the pandemic we got in touch with Elderbrook whom we admired for a very long time. We ended up writing a little demo and shared it with Purple Disco Machine who not only completed the work but elevated it with the power of all that we love about the 80s. Pump it up in your car to work, in your earphones on the train or even on your boombox and everything will seem less crazy or just the right crazy.”— Bloom Twins
