Cool Music for a hot Summer – New Haji Mike Single ‘The Wild’

As temperatures soar in Cyprus to 40+ degrees Haji Mike unleashes a brand new cool spoken word/hiphop single called ‘The Wild’.

The veteran poet and DJ based in Cyprus – whose latest projects include collaborations with Chaka Chouka and Dr.Chrispy – calls for a different kind of Utopia.
 Imagine a world without toxic goods and thoughts, where people live in the wild, happy and free. This vibe is what the song is about, a desire to get away from the madness of urban/city/online life and get back to a rootsier tranquil way of living.

‘The Wild’ is a collaboration with a number of gifted artists online. Soufiane Gaga based in the Canary islands produced the beat, laying the foundation for the groove. Gaga and Haji Mike collaborated before on the ‘Roots & Branches’ Project (2010). Electric Piano and keyboard atmospherics created by Boleslaw “Bolo” Gryczynski, at Blind Dog Media Studios. Bernard O’neill (Syriana, Dub Colosssus) added a nice groovalicious bass line. 

The song was produced by Haji Mike and Soufiane Gaga at G-Prod & Blind Dog Media Studios. It’s the 1st song of a new spoken word EP by Haji Mike called ‘ Goodies from my Yiayia’s freezan…’ coming out later in 2021

‘The Wild’ is available on all good digital download platforms from 30th June. Click on the image below to hear the song

Lyrics

The Wild – Haji Mike

All those things we don’t know about

We live in the shadows

Making narratives in time

Captivating your minds

Destruction and pity

Word can be wise

Useful constructive

Reasoning

Words can also be

Hurtful

Crazy

Demeaning

Compassion and understanding

Expressions lacking feeling

Actions from imbiciles of a bygone age

Become the norm

Chorus

Gonna live in the wild

Cos the city life is not for me

Gonna live in the wild

Far away from the madness that was not meant to be

Gonna live in the wild

No bitter words

Gonna live in the wild

Not seen – not heard…

We live and die for the money

Laugh and cry for the luxury

Aspire the be the stereotypes they feed us

They breed a million and one ways

To control your mind

From all directions

And those who resist and question

Are objectified and sectioned

Into compartmentalized

Media frenzies

For the sake of the lovers of

Putrid Beemas and Benzies

To Live and grow under all that pressure

Destroys and suppresses you

Limiting your endless horizons

Chorus

Gonna live in the wild

Cos the city life is not for me

Gonna live in the wild

Far away from the madness that was not meant to be

Gonna live in the wild

No bitter words

Gonna live in the wild

Not seen – not heard…

Don’t let the past to decide the present

Strangle the future

Control your every movement

Expression

That vital ingredient in life

Such a

Cherished thing

You live and die for

Like a freedom fighter

When that bell tolls

They all know

Who stood tall?

Who stayed silent?

And who obediently followed

The massed don’t need indoctrination

They just need

A good good education

Chorus

Gonna live in the wild

Cos the city life is not for me

Gonna live in the wild

Far away from the madness that was not meant to be

Gonna live in the wild

No bitter words

Gonna live in the wild

Not seen – not heard…
