Official video: youtu.be/AkD_eApQN0Q

This is the the first single from the álbum and also one of my favorites.
I discovered Jim Hast when a good fiend sent me the video of his debut single “Bridges To You”. It absolutely blew my mind, it was love at first sight. His voice captivated me, it’s magic, sensual, evocative and it really sounds unique.

The story behind this song is really special. In the beginning of 2014 I met a British born, Hamburg based guy called Tony Phillips. He showed me the world of music for advertising and we started some amazing projects together.

Tony was a very talented advertsing writter but despite he is a true music lover, he never had the chance to fulfill one of his dreams: write a proper song. Naturally, I cheered him up to do it.

The first thing he wrote was That’s Me, a song about going out, doing drugs in good company, travelling etc. In other words: the journey of knowing yourself and the search for freedom. I was absolutely feeling it but I didn’t tell him about my upcoming plan…

The thing is that I already had a very cool demo in my hard drive that was perfect for those lyrics and I had also just met Jim Hast, so, obviously I sent everything to him and invited him to join us. He loved both the demo and the lyrics and started recording vocals straight away. When I heard what Jim recorded I just couldn’t believe it. It was MAGIC. I spent a few weeks working on the track and I decided to send to Tony the final versión of the track just the day his daughter was born. Just as a present for all the cool things he did for me. He literally cried ☺

lyrics

VERSE

Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time


Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time

Motherfuckers preachin' I be steppin' out of line


CHORUS

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while

VERSE

Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time

Motherfuckers preachin' I be steppin' out of line


CHORUS

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while
