The release of Look to the Heavens wouldn't have been possible without the support and encouragement from friends and family who tell me to continue making music. I have rediscovered a drive to want to put out tracks, to shoot videos, to organise shows, to perform and ultimately to contribute and make an impact to Brunei's music scene. So thank you, sincerely.
I don't call it an album for the simple fact that most of the music are downloaded instrumentals. Even though the songs are written and crafted as intrinsically as a real album would, I believe an album can only be called that if everything in it is yours and owned by you. So instead we get away with it by calling it a 'mixtape'. Look to the Heavens is a reminder to always think positively and remain steadfast despite whatever turbulence we go through. 'Heavens' describe a desired outcome or particular goal that we should always have as motivation to keep moving forward. This means different things to different people and that in itself is the beauty of inspiration, it's unique to the individual.
Have a listen and let me know what you think. I've uploaded our previous 'mixtapes' as well just in case anyone would like to check out our older stuff. I would upload the even older Micbandits material but I don't have them anymore. If you do happen to have them, let me know too! I'm trying to find out if anyone has any of our www.microbandits.com releases as well. But then again rather than looking at the past, I'm more excited about the new things to come, so stay tuned.
Here's to 2016.
