Release date: 22 February 2019
justlikeu explains how his musical experiment came to be, saying “I realized we all go through ups and downs, feel the highest highs and the lowest lows, have weird thoughts of self-doubt and wake up after partying all night and feel sad. That’s why this project is named ‘justlikeu,’ to try and remove the hands in the air DJ hype and embody the human experience.” In generation addicted to the blue-light glare of technology screens, serotonin rushes, and social media fame, justlikeu is an artist with a simple mission: channel emotions through music, so that we may realize that we are all more alike than we are different. Recognizing both, the positive and negative fundamental elements of human nature, his embodiment of everything from power, to joy and sadness are masterpieces in their ability to coax a catharsis from even the most closed of hearts. Come along for the ride as justlikeu sets about breaking the rules of expression and expectation through sound.
