Ring Ring 03:18
Ring ring Destiny is calling I sing sing Cos I heeded all the warnings You drink drink And you ever will be falling You sink sink If you keep on with the stalling .You can run from the fear of the failure But if ya run then the fear gonna fail ya Till ya face fear man it’s ever gonna tail ya Don’t wait to be saved you are the saviour .In a mirror you can meet your maker Wanna know labour? Look to the nature Life is a jungle I’m a trail blazer ..Translating the deep on the paper .Time flies fast, into the past Aint no stop to this fact Why fight that? Drop real fast All these things that are stopping ya acts …Gotta smash the invisible traps Don’t get slack, grab an axe and bat And the prison gets smashed cos we’re blasting it back Rise up widya clan from the race of the rats Ring ring Destiny is calling I sing sing Cos I heeded all the warnings You drink drink And you ever will be falling You sink sink If you keep on with the stalling Can’t get contact through the noise So we strip down excess enter void This Lo Fi life leaves space for choice And I’m choosing to listen to the guiding voice …Infinite destinations No footstep’s gonna leave you waiting Answer the call as we trample the walls Abandoning all of this deep complacence .Wake up shake up this make up .For the sake of the youth that replace us Break up shake up this fakeness .For the sake of the verse that made us Weighed down by the shell and the skin Zombies can’t see this hell that they’re in And they’re biting their kin inviting them in To a world of the lies that be blinded by djinn Ring ring Destiny is calling I sing sing Cos I heeded all the warnings You drink drink And you ever will be falling You sink sink If you keep on with the stalling .Moshi moshi man I answer the call Igniting my engines I try not stall But life is a fight and the temptations Ever gonna tempt brains from their course wida force …I draw swords Slicing my body from the things it adores Try rise high cos my life is a prize And I wanna wake eyes and I wanna go tour And I try try try to give thanks for my chance Give thanks to my Dad give thanks to my Mam Cos they raised me and they ever made me Ever love life ever love dem bees and their dance …Man I’m free from the past Mast high for the wind that I catch Tunnel vision as I seek new lands And I seek for a perfect place for the seeds that I plant Ring ring Destiny is calling I sing sing Cos I heeded all the warnings You drink drink And you ever will be falling You sink sink If you keep on with the stalling

Dust on a rock in an orbit Entrusted with rock by the gods we imported Dust on a rock in an orbit War scorched up the rock as we tortured Dust on a rock in an orbit Destined to rust on the rock if it’s thoughtless Dust on a rock in an orbit Searching for rocks to inhabit wida war ship .And they went into final frontier A destiny set to be starting a new .Through the vacuum of space Didn't ask to be chased But their shadows are following soon ..Can they ever run from What they've become and they've done in their slumber? ..Can it ever be undone? Humanity on earth in a trance of the blunders Man and mistakes one and the same Lightning and thunder, making me wonder… Will a new land wida new plan Ever be a paradise wida scars on our lumber? …Huh…typical man Thinks he can fix up the problems at hand By flying to planets escaping the damage That ravages earth and is killing the land Dust on a rock in an orbit Entrusted with rock by the gods we imported Dust on a rock in an orbit War scorched up the rock as we tortured Dust on a rock in an orbit Destined to rust on the rock if it’s thoughtless Dust on a rock in an orbit Searching for rocks to inhabit wida war ship We think we are gods in the image of the one But we, don’t cry for the life that is lost Hindsight strikes, time it is gone And we can’t live here so we try move on Into the matrix out into space wid So many problems nobody’s facing Taken with, in our minds and our spaceship We be stuck to the shadows we created .......Do you love do you lust …Do you know what we’re marching amongst …Have ya been sucked in by the stuff …Dya think that ya more than the dust? …But you are just dust, trust …And you will return to the crust Everything burns and everything rusts Everything dies and everything’s dust Dust on a rock in an orbit Entrusted with rock by the gods we imported Dust on a rock in an orbit War scorched up the rock as we tortured Dust on a rock in an orbit Destined to rust on the rock if it’s thoughtless Dust on a rock in an orbit Searching for rocks to inhabit wida war ship …More rocks to be conquered Wida conquest get what we wanted Space has affronted our strengths and the lengths That we’ve come to undo the gravity onwards Upwards, away from the past Running from mistakes and the planet that we crashed A planet that we cashed in tortured and smashed Boarding escape ships whose gonna blast off? ..Genetics that are favoured Arian race has ever been savoured .Wida colony of bots for the labour .The rich play god play maker …Every big act will die But stars and the moon still shine in a sky And we’re stuck here watching them fly to the night Left in the wake of the profit and the pride Dust on a rock in an orbit Entrusted with rock by the gods we imported Dust on a rock in an orbit War scorched up the rock as we tortured Dust on a rock in an orbit Destined to rust on the rock if it’s thoughtless Dust on a rock in an orbit Searching for rocks to inhabit wida war ship

Hands 03:04 video
Gimme that gimme that antidote Cos the poison flows through the hand and toes And mans got plans but my hands are froze Yo I gotta get rid of the hands that choke But my nightmare is a man I know Same hands different plans for those And the answer stands in a rancid dose Man I melt that negative bastard slow …Hands up if ya hands are broke Fractured wholes n the blasted bones We’ve all got hands in the dance of dopes And we’ve gone too far so it’s time to fold Master the focus master the hold Get a grip don’t slip into trance alone France got stabbed for a hand of dough Slicing the body from its handsome soul Hands, hands on a string Cut that fast hands handling things Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his time got ransomed hands for the king Hands hands hands on a string Strung along in a dance of the sins Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his hands got captured hands for the king A little bit a discipline need no Ritalin Gotta sew seeds if we wanna see bigger things Gotta flow free in the wind as we missioning Please don’t march with the zombie gibberish We work hard and resist conditioning Devil makes work for the idle ligaments Every boy talks but none of dem listening Gotta supersede this ignorance .Can I get a good show of hands? Who thinks that they really know the land? Man the worlds so mixed up, ripped up Twist up nobody really can understand Doing the best is the best we can Too much rest with our heads in sand. And we walk in a slumber forcing our thunder Down to the levels of an undead man Hands, hands on a string Cut that fast hands handling things Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his time got ransomed hands for the king Hands hands hands on a string Strung along in a dance of the sins Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his hands got captured hands for the king …They can’t handle it So man are gonna ever wanna tamper with ..The make up of the man that is SMASH wida angerfist… Mans hands make a magic trick or Mans hands gonna slap this bitch raw Mans hand in her pants manhandling …These days its sport .Dance wida devil in the dungeon .In the handcuffs hands won’t function .Handguns n the truncheons .Pigs munching the weak for their luncheon …Pigs in the palm of the masters ..On a farm hands work for the bankers No time for the hands to be mastered Hands at a ransom working the for Thatcher Hands, hands on a string Cut that fast hands handling things Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his time got ransomed hands for the king Hands hands hands on a string Strung along in a dance of the sins Man had plans for his hands for his kin But his hands got captured hands for the king

Temples 03:25
In a temple words find peace Might find me in a garden asleep Might I be this artist unique Compressed on the net for the searchers to see …But nobodies searching for me Busy in the head wida charts oda cheese .Brainwashed by the bards of the beast Now they worship the bards full farce on repeat Can’t see the stars if you stare at a screen And you can’t see the stars cos of lights in the street .If you don’t close eyes to the treats then You can’t reach your heart and you can’t see your dreams So! Where’s ya spirit gonna be When you’ve drawn last breath will it ever be free? Will it float to the heavens wida gods find peace? Or will it be stored on a USB? .When did we stop building the temples .When did we drop our link to the mental Age of the data making us tremble But all of the info’s in DNA tendrils …Wida demented momentum Descendants of architects are descending ..At the cost of the gods big vengeance .We relentlessly seek transcendence .Through a temple break from evil To the heavens through the eye of this needle Through a wire now we enter the sequel Mentally making dimensions of equals .On the other side exit the matter fast Catch me in a bit, man I’m data in a flash Light up my spirit wida power we adapt Weigh up my soul wida feather of the ma’at In a temple, a portal for walking Out of the mind through the water rewarding .Baptised in the emptiest ice Minds finds life of the silence calling …Escaping the noise and the agony Deep in the atom we be finding the galaxy …But the atom never managed me The Dao and the way man it all be anarchy …In a temple of dreams Chaos is the order they meant it to be Meant for the beasts that are wandering free Try to control and you won’t find peace In a temple join with the sky Talk wida clouds take a walk wida mind Forces abide me to walk with my life My feet keep moving, walk till I die

Ineffable 04:17
…Ineffable, sublime and ever inedible …Incredible, the church would say it’s heretical …Indelible… and never expressible . See it’s chimerical, beautiful and it be terrible ..Trying to talk about, what cannot be talked about A walk of doubt but clear my mind and let the talking out I walk around, the earth and find the awesome sounds The awesome sights that bring me might and chill my forces out ..A stormy cloud, inside a mind that’s made of peace …Too much thinking too much talking too much raising we …All these words we have they complicate the way we be ..Take a breath and find the base of all that’s making me .Stripping it down, a dub of all the overloading … A riddim of sound, a love for all on earth in oceans … Just a bit of the Dao, wows me and I’m proud I’ve chosen …To be living around the trees that softly speak the omens …Listen to rocks, speak to the gravel that gets in your socks You think that you’re the smartest, they’ve been here for years you’ve not …It’s all a dream, the windfish wakes we’re breaking free The links awakening the force of all the ancient’s speak …Ineffable, sublime and ever inedible …Incredible, the church would say it’s heretical …Indelible… and never expressible . See it’s chimerical, beautiful and it be terrible What’s the way to pave the way to say the way we wait in vain Why’d I try to find the right to write these writings anyways? ..It’s only right so I’m a ride this mic and vibe away Can ya see the signs of times, the omens that they hide today? ..The spirits be meddling, the image of gimmicks they’re peddling ..Attracting eyes from moment, feeding souls their dose of da ketamine ...If moments frozen and you hold the peace it’s oh so settling ..A dose of moment keeps the soul from worries irrelevant …So I’m a try, to keep my mindful eye …Open right beside the third that’s such a thirsty eye Search inside the silence, and find no words describe The universe that’s perfect as we learn to love the hurt inside …Don’t wait for it, we have to make the changes quick .Evolving faster than disaster lest we fade with it ..This online life reminding me of what the matrix is Where’s the one? The one is all, it’s urging us to make a shift …Ineffable, sublime and ever inedible …Incredible, the church would say it’s heretical …Indelible… and never expressible . See it’s chimerical, beautiful and it be terrible

Trees 06:12
We were brought here and honoured with the gift of life A sip of water bit of light and we synthesize We take a rest but we survive in the winter time Storms hit hard some fall some live to rise Rooted in the ground no matter how much we wish to fly We can lose limbs but continue to live to fight Living in community it truly be the trick to life Floating in the wind and settle down when we pick a site A seed in the weed lands softly and germinates Putting down roots growing up on the earth again Looking for the light through the canopy they search a way Provide materials for beasts as we work in vain But some have overworked and clearcutting is the word today The worst is yet to come so I’ve got yearnings for my words to break And crack up the barriers to love that people learn today Plant a tree upon the place if I meet an early grave …Trees feed and connect through their roots .With no leaves stumps still get fed food Find me living next to the woods for the next few I wanna breath deep and refresh while my head soothes Colours of the leaves greens golden and red too Fall in the wind so the tree gets a rest too It reminds me to let go and get loose I suggest you climb the biggest trees that you get to HI FU MI YO I MU NA YA KO TO MO CHI RO RA NE SHI KI RU YU WI TSU WA NU SO O TA HA KU ME KA U WO E NI SA RI HE TE NO MA SU A SE E HO RE KE x2 Growing up amongst the dust we try to reach that sky... ...Roots are feeding on the compost of past lives I'm never that guy, that ever asks why I don't need a reason to be seeing seasons pass by ...Mast high wida wind as my guide ...Baptised in the ocean at night I've been, chastised by the sins they ascribe But I'm, ever free to be me in my mind HI FU MI YO I MU NA YA KO TO MO CHI RO RA NE SHI KI RU YU WI TSU WA NU SO O TA HA KU ME KA U WO E NI SA RI HE TE NO MA SU A SE E HO RE KE x2 変わりゆく四季の中にぼくらに やすらぎをもたらすその色かたち (We feel the trees and their history through our five senses) 五感で感じる木々と歴史 (The smell of oak) 秋めく日々とクヌギの香り (The Autumn of our youth) 木々から始まるぼくのストーリ (My story has its roots amongst the trees) 心の奥にそびえ立つ森 (And this forest still stands in my heart) ひとたび奥に進んでくたびに (As I move through the woods) 会える気がするあの日のぼくに (I feel like I can meet the seed that I grew from) 散りゆく枯葉 (Falling dead leaves) 流れ込む小川 (Flowing small stream) 壮大な森は This magnificent forest is teaching us something...

...I'm a seed in the wind I ...Float over seas ever since I ...Woke from the dream and the disguise ...Loosed my grip let things float by ...Leave it behind I'm a climber reach for the sky Don't wait, never wanna stagnate Gotta get away so I and I fly Dead weight and dead skin Flakes off as we climb out trenches Dead mates and our dead kin Travel in our soul guide us to legend Never follow crowds only ever follow feet Follow that heart break the monotony Be my queen come and start a new colony Married to my anima I animate honestly ...So we let go Tension takes over when your fists closed Never wanna see no dead souls So we helping each other from the get go, yo ...I'm a seed in the wind I ...Float over seas ever since I ...Woke from the dream and the disguise ...Loosed my grip let things float by I trust we're addicted to lust I don't trust that but I do trust love I want to give a shift to the clutch A wake up call the victims of lust but The only one that I can ever change is me Stuck in a city where the strangeways breed The same ways seen since the days we were teens I gotta get away so I estrange my feet Never sad to walk from the past The presents in the present got the whole world trapped The penance of the peasants got the whole world taxed But we never asked to be ruled by the banks ...want more, die for the contours Conned more we're forced into consort Our thoughts, police keep short But we raising them up and we're leaving the shore ...I'm a seed in the wind I ...Float over sea ever since I ...Woke from the dream and the disguise ...Loosed my grip let things float by We came from the coast Be the closest place, the day pops And I sneak off to travel alone, cry stop To the driver and hop off the bus, from the junction At bang sue, the end of the line The assumption, I can't do or go as I please These days I feel free Navigate the maze With no self belief And I might never escape to the trees Set my sights on the future I seen- But it's all so opaque The glass is half full, how ya play it That could be the catapult Do I have to say it? How I became a fiend for the minimal Analogue to digital just trying to decipher the individual It's hard to fill the void Always is always was The questions are many But the answers "just cause" Too many plans But there ain't enough time All we can do is Let things flow by

Stars 06:57
Aoteroa Lake Tekapo Clear skies New moon I saw my heart grow I saw the stars The constellations A neat wee bit of THC for meditation Dwarfed by the dwarfs A little bit of supernova A little bit of dust on a rock seeking closure Over and over the memories enclosed us So we let em go n never let em take us over Once we were warriors, once we were pagans Many more times than I'd want we were slavers Wanting and wanting we stomp through the ages In a kali yuga that harks to the matrix I've seen the beasts that creep the streets in purest dark .I've seen the chaos take a mind and move it far .I've seen the peace and trust its who we truly are I fell in love with the moon and the stars I’ve fallen in love with the moon I’ve fallen in love with the stars I’ve fallen in love with wisdom Our peace will be ours x2 If you see the stars in purest form it changes heart and soul We’ve hardly seen the start of story we’ve got oh so far to go Far to grow, reaching for the peace inside our heart to show The moon and stars that love us too are here to light the dark with hope .And where we’re taking this technology it bothers me Weapons manufacturers on top of tech’s monopoly Directing our direction to evolve oh so demonically But we could go to other solar systems do it morally Astronomically explore the universe with unity If you leave the city lights behind then maybe you can see The advert’s a bad curse and nature holds immunity Before we sail our ship off edge of earth we need a mutiny Before we write our eulogy we’re ending all this lunacy The darker side of moon has bent our groove and sapped our purity Everything eats everything but we do it too brutally We’re harming life so harmonise and learn to do it beautifully I’ve fallen in love with the moon I’ve fallen in love with the stars I’ve fallen in love with wisdom Our peace will be ours x3

about

Duszt is a twelve track ‘conscious trap’ album with accompanying feature length music video, filmed on location in Japan, inspired by concepts of Daoism, Zen Buddhism and classic Japanese directors such as Akira Kurosawa and Kitano Takeshi. Jody Bigfoot is attempting to keep alive the rebellious roots of hip hop whilst sprinkling it with the encouragement for spiritual growth he strongly believes is needed for humanity to find its way out of the chaotic predicament it’s currently in. Exploring subjects ranging from ego in rap, the daily grind of the rat race, the irony of colonizing mars before saving our own home, destiny and Dao amongst more. The film embodies a yin yang, with the first half filmed at night in urban landscapes and the second, filmed at day in Japan’s serene countryside and temples with a dot of the opposite starting and ending this structure. The album and movie are designed to uplift it’s audience and invite them to question what it means to be alive inside a system that is harming its inhabitants and threatening the very life of its host.

The release of Jody Bigfoot’s striking debut album Duszt represents something of a samsaric loop – a zen-like full circle marking the death of his previous group Trinity Lo Fi, and rebirth of a solo career. In 2012 Bigfoot lived in a tiny apartment in Japan, riding his mamachari (Japanese style bike with a basket) around the city filming music videos and honing his editing skills. During this time some of the first Trinity Lo Fi verses were put down on Helgeland 8-bit Squad’s unique laptop reggae riddims. When he made it back to the UK Bigfoot teamed up with Zico MC a childhood friend and local prodigy on the mic. Six years and five albums later, Bigfoot found himself back in Japan, shooting the feature-length music video for Duszt. How fitting that it’s replete with imagery of repeating cycles like the Japanese calligraphic symbol, the enso. Bigfoot and Zico are going their separate ways, concentrating on solo projects, while the former also prepares to launch a new hip hop group Lucid Giants with Nobull (of North East local legends Verbal Terrorists).

The story of Duszt itself begins in a random reggae Facebook group where Bigfoot posted a request for contacts in Jamaica or California whilst in the midst of applying for a Canadian work visa. The plan was to save up in Canada and make some kind of musical project in Jamaica, but after linking with Tandaro in said group, the forking path of fate diverged. The pair began collaborating on digital reggae songs but when Tandaro visited the UK to go to Notting Hill Carnival with Bigfoot, he showed Bigfoot some of the modern trap and hip hop coming out of America. Artists like Post Malone, Future and Germany’s Trettman rapping on the new wave of trap instrumentals interested Bigfoot but he was disappointed in the generic nature of a lot of the beats, and their basic lyrical content. After making many niche genre albums and feeling like the message in the music wasn’t reaching as many as it could or should, Bigfoot proposed scrapping the obscure 8-bit reggae hip hop and making a more artistic, nuanced and thought-provoking trap album.

Soon after Notting Hill, Bigfoot flew to Canada to climb and cut some of the world’s biggest trees. As Tandaro kept drafting beats to continue what was started in the UK, Bigfoot would stay up late in his solitary shack in the woods, trying to etch out a new style and path. Halfway through the year, Bigfoot changed jobs, moving to some of the last ancient rainforest in British Columbia to work in North America’s most expensive resort and birthplace of ‘glamping’, a dichotomy of pristine nature and hedonistic capitalism.

Aside from the phenomenal natural beauty surrounding him, and providing immense inspiration to finish the songs for what was now called ‘Duszt’, Bigfoot also expected to receive a healthy tip check from the customers who attended the resort. The serenity of his current environs jarred against the thronging metropolises of Japan, yet its contrasting landscape and culture began to call him back. Pre-empting being the richest he’d ever been, Bigfoot dropped the idea of Jamaica and planned to blow it all on a trip to Japan with a regular collaborator on Trinity Lo Fi videos, Jonjames Oxberry-Hogg and produce a feature-length, continuous music video for the album.

The pair began filming almost the minute they touched down. They maintained that momentum for the entire two months, sometimes out of the house for 36 hours at a time with no sleep. Duszt was mostly shot in the suburbs of Osaka, with trips to the temples and rural regions of Kyoto as well as a week in Tokyo where they met up with local artist, Pakin to get his shots for the opening track and a unique spanish flutist that provided the haunting accompaniment to the intro track “Hataraite” (Work).

There were more travails to come in post-production. Kid Eastah, another local artist featured in the opening track had to have all of their shots removed from the movie as they entered into the Japanese corporate world which frowns upon people having their faces on YouTube and the public sphere outside of their profession. This presented a serious headache given his prominence in the shoot. The new cut evokes a fittingly empty feeling, focusing more heavily on the Japanese commute to work, the very same machine that forced Kid Eastah’s removal from the film in the first place.

But listeners to the album and viewers of the accompanying film will surely agree that the travels, tribulations and time poured into this project have been truly worth it. Duszt in both its iterations is a polished and poignant work of art, a claim that can’t be made by many fully self-financed trap albums. Duszt reflects the purity of thought and poetic synergy that occurs with a completed cycle. And it lays the roots for an exciting new journey of musical discovery. The cycle starts again...
