ESOTERIK
‘WIDE AWAKE’
(out 13 April 2018 through FLIGHT DECK/MUSHROOM GROUP)

Esoterik reveals raw new single ‘Wide Awake’, a progressive and poignant track that shines a spotlight on the influence of technology consuming every day society. With the collaboration of up and coming Sydney MC imbi the girl and Indianapolis’ Spazzy D delivering a special verse, the message is clear – it is time to wake up.

As one-third of hip-hop powerhouse Bliss n Eso, Esoterik (aka Eso) has become one of the most recognisable voices and loved personalities in contemporary Australian music. After kicking a decade-long heavy drinking habit while on tour overseas, Esoterik is the birth of a clear vision, an animal-like drive. The energy which he once burned elsewhere is now funnelled into a positive outlet, and the world is better for it.

‘Wide Awake’ is a song that touches on the ideas that our freedom is a misconception; we are not as liberated as we might think. Technology continues to grow and thrive in the world today and we have become slaves to our devices, blinded by social media.

Local star-in-waiting, imbi the girl, provides the heartfelt chorus, howling lyrics as a rumbling drum progresses, creating a climax of realisation. In short, it’s a call to action to resist the norm and embrace unity. Matched with Spazzy D’s genuine rap that melts into the flowing beat, listeners are again challenged to question their relationship with social media, technology, as well as themselves.

Esoterik’s signature flow welcomes and concludes the track, his message honest and clear; no longer will we stand to be subliminal slaves to technology, it’s time to get back to what’s important.
