Lotic: I'm trying to compress all of my experiences all of the time.

ILoveMakonnen: That's what life is about. Show me something.

Lotic: It's just me projecting what I think the club should be about.

ILoveMakonnen: While everybody is still sleeping, I'm up.

Lotic: In a crowded room with the door locked and the lights turned off.


ILoveMakonnen: At the end of the day, I'm tired of uplifting people.

Lotic: But now everyone wants to go out and look cute and sip on their cocktails and take selfies.

ILoveMakonnen: I guess everybody's here for the money, but there's not even any money here anymore.

Lotic: It’s not interesting or fun to me.

ILoveMakonnen: It’s all lies.


Lotic: Give them concussion.

ILoveMakonnen: Exactly. Snap yourself in fucking Peru with crazy colors on listening to my music, enjoying shit.

Lotic: [Laughs] It's like, “Whatever, straight white person, I don't wanna hear it!”

ILoveMakonnen: That's what my family always told me.

Lotic: I didn't have a diary, I just opened Ableton and I poured everything in that way.
