about

Yūgen means “an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words.”

Yugen - the poem...

an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses
too deep and mysterious for words, and consciousness

exceeds dictionaries and scientific discoveries…
yeah when you’re feeling that steez… …it’s Yugen,

Samurai Champloo, choose technique or intuition like Jin or Mugen
we’re all veterans of existence, none of us are noobs friend.

But I cultivate clarity, awareness of reality.
The true nature of the mind, for the benefit of all humankind

Sometimes this cultivation’s revealing something more than a feeling
That goes beyond words, but do you see what I’m dealing wit?

A community exists that founded a standardised language
to communicate clarity in ways that probably sound alot less like insanity

and more like wisdom, the inexhaustible treasure of reality but can it be
I’m used to being an outsider of communities, the blackest sheep?

But if that story doesn’t serve me, anything at all I can be.
Cos I am everything, (there is no “I” actually.)

As we see the differences between the clever and the wise through their lives
…May humanity see reality and thrive.

Your path is your path, all is well. But girls n guys…
…sometimes I wish you could all see through my eyes.

Your path is your path, all is well. But girls n guys…
…maybe I’m yet to accept you already see through my eyes.

Your path is your path, all is well. But girls n guys…
One love and one consciousness sees through all of our eyes.

Yugen, an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses
too deep and mysterious for words, and consciousness

exceeds dictionaries and scientific discoveries…
yeah when you’re feeling that steez…
…it’s Yugen.

…an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses
too deep and mysterious for words, and consciousness

exceeds dictionaries and scientific discoveries…
yeah when you’re feeling that steez…
…it’s Yugen.

…an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses
too deep and mysterious for words, but not for consciousness…

(Yugen is a Japanese word and more than likely the title of my next digital EP which is probably out sooner than you think, looks like mainly productions from Jon Williams aka King Slim and Cosmic Waffle aka AK aka Andy Keith…)

[INTRO]

Stop thinking! ...and open your hearts
We roll with the arts and healing

...We're dealing wit
love, and We're revealing wit
and wisdom

it's a given...
we're givin' it with rhythm!

it's a given...
we're givin' it with rhythm!

[VERSE 1]

We're the wrecking ball at the foundations when we wreck it up
We're the concrete in the foundations when we set it up.

Stop the conscious concentration to leave space for inspiration
Solitude for hibernation, come back with more love vibration

Love yourself to stop the hatin, fat break beats, got me breakin'
You know the drill so dont be still - the beats have got ya body shakin

You're all Gs for 'genius', my higher self is my genie - yes!
...Open source intelligence manifests blessed dreams, impressed? WO!

Oak leaf blowing on a lucky gust of wind
Trusting in the greatness thrust upon him as just another story.

Just a lovers glory, holed up like Saddam, huh? Just chillin
like Osama but with one eye open cos he got rolled on by Obama

I'm sovereign like Obama but not a puppet on a string
I'm attracting with my energy field, not relying on bling

Libyan desert glass? Good enough for Tutankhamen Good enough for me,
round my neck on inconspicuous black string.

[BRIDGE]

What happened to honour? What happened to heroes?
What happened to people with principles not being zeros?

It's all perception... So I don't care
Cos these are just concepts and concepts go nowhere.

Oh yeah, we won't be crippled by NO fear. X4

[VERSE 2]
We've all been insecure. We've all hit the floor.
We've all defended points of view a little too quick to war.

Our pride is a giant lion guarding a fragile baby glass cherubim,
A giant lion guarding fragile self esteem, just let em in.

We've probably all got some African in us, even caucasions from Caucus
Cut with Elohim, seraphim, nephillim.

Standing on the shoulders of giants
The universe wants to speak... and I can't be silenced.

Politicians controlled by international finance
Pontius Pilate these liars, I'm washing my hands.

We can do better. But whose definition of better?
Let it be, restfully blessed to be with beds here.

Let's just see if we react better at ease or in panic?
Stupid question? That's why I feel intense but may look so chilled.

Let's just see if we react better at ease or in panic?
Stupid question? ...Then let's just build.

I'm not always chilled, I'm only human,
I got emotional... and blamed it on full moons n

Choose to take responsibilty now but who am I kiddin?
If I'm not chillin I'm probably spittin'!

[HOOK]

What happened to honour? What happened to heroes?
What happened to people with principles not being zeros?

It's all perception... So I don't care
Cos these are just concepts and concepts go nowhere.

Oh yeah, we won't be crippled by NO fear. X4

we're givin' it with rhythm!

[Verse 1: KP Kev the Poet]
He used to fear that they’d all question his ability to represent
(Hip-Hop) – an over-sensitive man, calls himself a feminist

Cos mainstream Hip-Hop seems so superficial, masculine and venomous
To women. Laurel and Hardy ain’t seen such revoltin’ developments

I used to pick up peng from London’s most revolting tenements
Long before my brethren got Bristol bladder from more ketamine than elephants

I AM Hip-Hop… my memories the evidence
Before and after the dub poetry I dabbled in all Hip-Hops elements -

B-Boying, DJing, Beatboxing, Graffiti, and the fifth
MCing, time to be quartz crystal clear and end the mist/mystery

/Terry Gilliam directed this lucid dream, end the myth
I used to HATE myself for caring what you think a legend is

While telling you all to love yourselves, yeah, “KP KeV the hypocrite.’
Hooked on Facebook and YouTube while still saying “televisions shit”

Galactic Central? send upgrade labelled ‘remember mission quick.’
They sent one blank sheet of paper… And a pen – a bic

There was another envelope they must have sent it with
Inside it said “Just love yourself, ps it’s you that sent the script.”

And for a moment I remember - Consciousness is infinite
If everything’s everything, let’s just live for mutual benefit

Is that so hard? Even with cracked old hearts?
It seems the evil know power and the good know scars

But dualitys a fallacy of faculties that’s limited
What if there is no good and evil and your power’s infinite?

[Hook / Hook]
What Dem t’inking? Got dem tinking
We’re not even thinking, just Quantum linking
What Dem dealing? Seemingly healing
Not even healing, just quantum revealing

Our personal connection to infinite being's been leading to freedom
We've become people who set goals and achieve em!
Our personal connection to infinite being's been leading to freedom
We've become people who set goals and achieve em!

[Bridge]
Love yourself. Love each other
Spread love to your sister and brother

Just take a pause to stop thinking
We’re always connected, Quantum Linking!

Remember to love myself, laughed at myself being hard on myself
Self critical, judgmental, too quick with a par for myself

Raise yer chin, drop the drawbridge, kick back
Raise a grin, feel inner peace impact!

[Hook / Hook]
What Dem t’inking? Got dem tinking
We’re not even thinking, just Quantum linking
What Dem dealing? Seemingly healing
Not even healing, just quantum revealing

[Verse 2: KP Kev the Poet]
With drum beats to knock out front teeth We send vibes so lovely
… like the blessings I received within one week

I was offered to host an open mic at a lovely venue in Bristol
And asked to be a trustee of two different charities by two different people

I was looking forward to supporting Congo Natty in a couple of weeks
With Jakus Lakus providing more than a couple of beats

Said to myself “you’ve been raving to Congo Natty since your teens!”
And still got Fizzy Forest’s Happy Daze on February 14th!

[Break]
And not in your dreams have you yet experienced
This bredrins weirdest flows or concepts, yep, yeah I guess they’re ‘various.’

May leave your mind precariously delirious. But like the rest they’re just appearances…
Rest in your awareness, yes

(for short moments many times
It may sound tedious
But it’s not. I can guarantee it, yes it can profoundly relieve stress.)

I got to Appearing truly blessed from appearing truly cursed
…Whatever the appearances? You are the universe!

That’s why ya flow… Act like ya know!
I cry. Let no one to tell you how to act like a bloke…

We are all one with a force nothing could ever stop king
Never got sober so much as just over over-drinking

Now it’s time to stop over-thinking. Cos when I watched many minds stop thinking
For short moments many times… I watched many shine

Uh! Some days I just felt too emotional to cope at all
The hermit watching Kermit but still often known to ball

We’re the ones who catch the alley-oop AND those who throw the ball
But if we’re ALL da kings and queens… is there no throne at all?

It’s fine to be emotional, just watch them emotions all disappear into the nothingness…
…from whence they came, then more loving, yes!
