Distant

by Martis Unruly

  • Cassette

    The continual war with addiction and the trials of real life have given Martis the chance to define himself with increasing clarity as he reflects on his decisions and learns of the powers we all possess as human beings. Distant is the state in which we find him in, but it has allowed him to learn of himself and grow as an individual. The album represents the emotions we experience in the discovery of our true will and refuses to leave out any of the negativity we inevitably encounter. Straightaway Martis tells of this negativity but gives us the sense he’s learnt how to see through it to gain what he can; “Look into my eyes, I cannot hide the dark abyss/yet I feel so positive”. He isn’t only aware of his darkness, but he embraces it and consistently flexes it in ways that propel his efforts of getting through those moments in the shadows. However, Martis isn’t alone and the diversity of UDF shines ever so brightly on each of the guest verses on the album. ICEDOUTFLAME$, Dizzi Slick, and vocalist/producer Trowa Barton work to further illustrate what the dust funk sound can accomplish, but not without the help of sonic-magus Khrist Koopa and equally capable producers Brobak and Royce Charms. Such forces coming together have given us a complete, cohesive work of art from the vault of the Unity Diversity Freedom cult. Distant tastefully gives a voice to any person who feels as if they’ve grown further from the world around them and closer to discovering their true being by attaining the divine knowledge sought by those aware of it.
