RISE AND SHINE:
Music is religion
The Apocalypse Dj is the creator
The time has come to RISE AND SHINE
Like the rest of you, I was born on disaster highway. A place where you travel for a lifetime, without going nowhere. Like a big, never-ending freeway for your predestined life that doesn’t seem to have any exits.
While people around me accepted to live sadly ever after, like ants building a pile of dirt for their queen, that wasn’t enough for me. I always felt different. I always felt like I was meant for something else. I needed to rock my microphone.
I lost track of time, lost track of what was real and what was fiction. And sometimes I think I almost lost my mind, but in the end I came out on top. A brand new me was born. A recreation of my being. A remix that had developed a set of super-skills. With this power, I knew my dreams could become true. I just needed to find a group of like-minded individuals.
I searched for many years for the most devoted, the most talented and the most well hung musicans out there. I wasn’t sure how they would react to me and my powers, so I made them come together, directing them from the shadows. As the band grew, I grew with them.
With “Unbreakable” I was just a spirit in the booklet, With “The Apocalypse DJ”, my name and photo made it to the cover. With “Rise and Shine”, I’m taking my place as a superhero, DJ and drummer of the band. We are ready to let the world know what lies beyond disaster highway, and all of you are welcome to follow!
Anything standing between us and our dreams, we Smash into Pieces!
