"Different Manifestations of the Same Thing" is an instrumental beat suite, conceptually themed, highlighting anxiety, nervousness, one's mental health, and death. The voice of 70s mental health expert, Dr. Feder, occasionally guides the listener through the piece. I was looking to capture musically, the sense of anxiety and nervousness that I feel most of the time.
The basic beats for these tracks were produced back at the end of 2012, and released on The Raw Deal 2012. I had always intended for these to be part of a new set of songs. Back in the summer, I began sequencing them together; adjusting the mixes, adding new samples, and expanding on the arrangements.
DMotST is part 1 of a double EP. Part 2 is "Play That Shit!".
