There’s a dreamlike, natural-world quality to the entire arrangement. It’s a busy set-up, but it doesn’t feel that way – the in-the-moment jam session presents a level of unity, which lends its oneness to the listener from afar.
This is a rare kind of music that you can actually create your own art or music in the company of, without feeling distracted or overly influenced. It works for you, not against you.
Every once in a while a track comes along that makes you forget the whole concept of a write-up and just get lost in the music and your own imagination. Emmeffe’s Voyage is a fine example of such a release.
Lampedusa has a big, warm heart that resonates powerfully from beginning to end. This song has something to say, and says it beautifully. It’s getting a lot of love on Soundcloud and deservedly so.

“YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard) is a grass-roots political movement that focuses on housing issues all over the United States and around the world. It is a reaction against NIMBY (Not In My BackYard), where a lot of affordable housing developments are being blocked by local governments, driving up rent prices and homelessness rates everywhere, especially around the major metro areas in the US.”
Patience and peace rarely play a role in modern life, but they should, and perhaps they must as times move faster and grow noisier and more impactful on our every day existence. Enter YIMBY, these compositions, and the choice to temporarily free yourself from the manic downpour of information.
