You Got To Go

I first discovered EDM during my first year of college at the University of Arizona. I originally grew up in Washington, so I was pretty far from home and even though I had a decent group of new friends, I still felt alone.

The love of my life, my boyfriend of almost two years, had decided to call it quits since I was so far away and this added immensely to the loneliness I was feeling.

I was empty, and just going through the motions. Pretending to be what I thought everyone wanted me to be. Then one day I came across Above&Beyond and my world changed. “You Got To Go” became my anthem and little by little I rebuilt myself.

The lyrics so perfect I could have sworn they were written for me.

Dream on little dreamer,
this is how it all begins,
move your feet,
feel how sweet it is.

Dream on little dreamer,
follow all of your signs,
you gotta gather up what you need,
you gotta choose a direction,
and when the moment is right for you, you got to go.
You gotta keep your ideals high,
you gotta know that the sky belongs to no-one, you got to go.

Keep on little dreamer,
keep hold of all that you are,
move your feet,
feel how sweet it is.

Dream on little dreamer,
follow all of your signs,
you gotta gather up what you need,
you gotta choose a direction,
and when the moment is right for you, you got to go.
You gotta keep your ideals high,
you gotta know that the sky belongs to no-one, you got to go.

I had never heard music so euphoric before in my entire life, and once I discovered the beauty of this music I never looked back.

Above & Beyond’s “Sun and Moon” propelled me to open my heart and give my beautiful yet crumbling relationship with my boyfriend one last full hearted try. And it worked. This might be more of a testament to the magical nature of A&B, but they are the artists that gently guided me in a time of great need. Because of them, I have explored other genres of EDM and found the same magical properties even in the depths of Trap or Melbourne Bounce. Electronic Music sparks something deep within us all, a playful and passionate spirit, something so much of the world has lost.
