WASABI, YO!!! After a successful USA tour, I am back in the studio with a new EP project - Robot Heart. As with all of my musical projects, I like to add a theme to the mix - keep an underlying thread going, a unified pulse to the music. So far, we've done a POP theme, an all VOCAL theme, a TOY theme - and this time, it'll be a ROBOT theme - where every sound on the EP will be made from a machine of some sort, and all songs will be written from the perspective of a robot. I know, it sounds crazy…but if you know me by now, then you know that I pretty much only do crazy, yo! I'm so excited about this - I mean, I'm excited about all things music, but after the new year - I really wanted to start honing in on a specific sound - and since a lot of my music has electronic elements, I thought this would be a perfect start to the new year.
This time around - I wanted to do things a little different. I know it's frowned upon, but I REALLY wanted to give you something the moment you pledged. So I finished a song on the EP before I started this project - so you can have something to listen to before this project technically ends. So all pledgers will get a copy of 0s + 1s instantly - because sometimes, instant gratification can be fun.
Because so many of you are repeat pledgers - I'd say about 70% of pledges come from people who've been with me since POP - I wanted to make a few pledges that'll be specific to this project. So you'll find a few things that you don't already have (thank god!) in the mix, since a lot of you are incredibly loyal and pretty much have everything I've put out since my first album. And for those of you who are new to the mix - you've got a lot of catching up to do! I've included a lot of goodies for you to choose from as well, including things that the veteran Kickstarter pledgers have. So fear not! With rewards like a Pig suit, a loopstation, a robot suit - there's something for everyone.
Here's the thing - this career I have - it really is because of all of you who pledge to these projects. Every cent is used to finish the project - from recording, to duplication, to mastering, to production of the product. As easy as a record label funded project can be, I choose this one - because I'd rather put out something that I love, something that you love, something we both believe in. Because that's what music should be - a creation from love.
From the bottom of my robot heart,
I Am Kawehi.
Risks and challenges
As with any project, there are always risks. I've said it before and I'll say it again - aliens could invade, astroids could hit, glaciers could melt (more) and catastrophes can happen. Should such events occur - even though I feel like I'd STILL probably finish it - there is a risk of me not being able to complete this project. But I've done everything in my power to complete the 4 successful projects before this one - and I intend to do the same here.
I think the biggest obstacle is always shipping - I can't make sure that your packages will arrive. If I could travel to each place and hand deliver them, I would. But should your package get lost in the mail - I always send another one, no matter the cost. A lot of Europe packages tend to take a month to arrive - so please consider that while you wait for your goods. If you'd like expedited shipping - please send me a message and we can definitely figure that out!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
