Against the Stream is a collaboration by Berlin based newcomer girl JOPLYN and Booka Shade. Urban Indie Pop meets Electronic Beats combined with thoughts of a young female artist waving somewhere between the beauty of hot summer nights and dark streets where you easily can get lost from time to time in big cities like Berlin. Definitely no need to hide this pretty face with hair the whole time and I am missing a little smile – but that’s just my personal opinion and something you should decide for yourself. Enjoy the night ride through the streets of Berlin and swim with Joplyn against the stream :)
***Don't be driven by fear and don't go chasing pleasure. You will lose yourself in the world, the external.
***If you cannot find the truth right where you are,where else do you expect to find it?
***Have you ever sat very quietly with closed eyes
and watched the movement of your own thinking?
Have you watched your mind working?
Or rather, has your mind watched itself in operation,
just to see what your thoughts are,
what your feelings are,
how you look at the trees, at the flowers,
at the birds, at people,
how you respond to a suggestion or react to a new idea?
Have you ever done this?
***Slow Down. You will not miss a thing, but you will find the entire universe. Slow down!
