We are living in serious times since Covid-19 hit the world hard. And even one year after its arrival there is still no real end in sight. All bets are on the vaccinations now and the hope that normal life comes back when most of the earth´s population got it. But will this be enough?
People are frustrated, all talk is about home office or the re-opening of schools and stores. But the last sector of society to re-open is the cultural one. There are millions and millions of artists, musicians, actors, sound technicians, bar tenders, dj´s, vj´s, light technicians and so many more that are nearly receiving any help. Here in Germany, in one of the richest countries in the world, it feels like a big slap in your face to see multinational corporations receiving millions in help from taxpayer money while still paying out billions in dividents to their share holders. Where are those millions of help for the cultural sector? Politicians love bragging with culture and the creative sector but when it needs real help then their actions show that it is not of systemic importance to them.
This pandemic has a big psychological impact on people´s minds and souls that cannot be underestimated. It´s heavy shit. But we can overcome this dark state of mind by challenging it with positivity and spiritual upliftment.
DOGU of Ancient Astronauts is here to help. He uses music as a weapon to fight the depression. His new dj mix "Wake Up And Live" serves as a celebration of life in it´s purest form. Spring time is coming and summer will soon follow, so let´s celebrate their arrival and feed our brains and souls with positive and uplifting music. His mix is full of conscious messages, thick grooves and heavy beats and riddims. It is a hommage to Mama Africa, the Black Lives Matter movement and the cultural wealth of planet earth.
Let us all stand together as ONE and not let this pandemic divide us.
Wake Up And Live !!
