    To go with your high quality album download there is a twelve page digital album art/liner notes booklet which adds to the value of the release greatly. The album art is contributed to by three different artists; New York artist Natalie del Villar (the front cover), Auckland artist Jarad Bryant (four inner pages introducing the two new alteregos represented in places on the album, and my internal alterego crew the Super Maaorio Bruthas, as well as the skateboarding crew I grew up skateboarding in, the Birkenhead Skateboard Posse), and Auckland artist Mikey Rockwell (who has drawn together all the elements of the cover into a cohesive whole and done 7 pages of work as a part of this). Thank you so much for your support of what I am doing.

For this living creation as she breathes and grows. Bless your being!! :) ... more

Some raps that came about from my daily struggles with my mental health and life in general. A massive blessing to create and share with you all. The pain that spurs me to create art has a great purpose! To create beauty to share with all of you peoples.

about

Esoligh Auckland

I make music as a healing process for myself and to make a contribution to the world. I hope everyone listening takes something away with them from this. I'm making music with a purpose from the bedrooms to the boondocks. In the forest there are trees, and within the trees, the wairua dwells. As it is with this. Bless! ... more

Track Name: *LOVE* feat Rizván & Scizzorhands
*LOVE* by ESOLIGH featuring RIZVÁN & DJ SCIZZORHANDS

CHORUS (Esoligh)
YOOOO YO YO YO YO
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
(repeats four times)

VERSE ONE (Esoligh)
On this real atmospheric tip of reality,
Bless your temples, bless your soul,
Let’s roll towards our goals,
Bless you and yours constantly

Let there be peace, let there be peace,
Throughout reality, throughout the land,
Let us be free, live in positivity,
Shaq Gavet paints pictures

With this beat, he sets me free,
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY,
We are universes orbiting each other,
Some nasty goodness, we like to eat

Some extreme people out there,
Trying to mainstream all of us,
From our personal pathways,
Fuck ‘em, be yourselves my gees

Live on for days,
Stay alive, be and thrive,
Hug your Mum everyone,
Life is in this moment yeah

Set your guns to stun!

CHORUS (Esoligh)
YOOOO YO YO YO YO x 4
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
(repeats four times)

VERSE TWO (Esoligh)
I lie here early in the morning, typing,
This beat repeats only one minute long,
I summon the Holy Spirit from within my heart,
The energy lifts, as I spit this gift

Rise from your slumber,
Realise you need to cut this lumber,
REALL, REAL, REAL,
Like Cappadonna and ODB

I light your fire from within me,
These raps a phat light of freedom gee,
Haters gon hate, religiously,
While my freedom reigns righteously

Fuck everybody that doesn’t understand,
Fear and ego are the enemy,
Like Earl said (SK La' Flare said it on the track but Earl rapped it on stage when I saw him and that's what I was referring to), crucify them to death,
The Rugged Man raises the dead

And I shed, the, devils from within me,
What I read, The words I read,
In the Gnostic gospels set me free,
The Gospel of Phillip will deliver me

CHORUS (Esoligh)
YOOOO YO YO YO YO
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
(repeats four times)

VERSE THREE (Rizván)
I wanna be me, I wanna be free,
To share my truth when I speak,
You better believe, for the mountains peak like a breeze,
But clouds down to the sea

Just be, myself and not to worry bout the judgements of nobody else
It's hard enough, living this life to receive love,
When your guard is up,
Sorry tryna cover scars and harden up

Insecurities, the deepest fear in me,
Acceptance, don't wanna be all alone and left neglected,
No cellphone, no internet, feeling so disconnected,
But putting up a front, a facade of just the best bits

We all see through the veils,
But nobody else wants to fail, hell,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
That's just the truth, I love you, I love you, I love you

I love you, I love you... that's just the truth
Track Name: Get Rhythm feat Brian G., Shaqles & Scizzorhands
GET RHYTHM by ESOLIGH featuring SHAQLES, BRIAN G. & DJ SCIZZORHANDS

CHORUS (ESOLIGH)
Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

VERSE ONE (ESOLIGH)
'Get Rhythm', like Johnny Cash,
I smash the enemy's negativity energy,
Give it the bash, agash, rewash,
All you evil ones get smashed

Fiddling with kids, get rashed,
Monsta mash rehash, tiggy tash,
I’m flash, enter shikari, enter goku,
I slice thru like my nephews

Here I go, bringing the heater,
Not like the one Mum bought tho,
The shit’s pre broken so it’s cold in here,
The warewhare gear not that shit yeah!

Like the legend Tom’s, shit year,
I lie here daring like a double dare,
Listening to the remenants of Everclear,
Bought circa ’96 from the old G’field mall

Fuck yeah!! (oh, fuck yeah)

CHORUS (ESOLIGH)
Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

VERSE TWO (BRIAN G)
Knee deep in the waters at my adolescence' twilight,
Recognise a 9-5 could leave my mind finite,
Primed with a plan I'm on the first flight to freedom,
It's a blossoming effect I'm branching off into season

Catching, wind in my roots on the path less travelled
Tongue, built like a helix so the words unravel,
Pray my soul stay pure knocking wood like gavel,
Disposition of possession branding me like chattel
Thank the seven stars for Andre, Sean, Lauryn & Chicago

If the cadence wasn't there I'd fall victim to Iago
Yo amplified excellence left stretches in my skin,
Same scars now validate the decadence within, me

CHORUS (ESOLIGH)
Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

Johnny saved my life,
Like CHRIST, LAO TZU, RUMI, and MAITREYA BUDDAH GEE,
Like CHRIST

VERSE THREE (SHAQLES)
I'm what they wanted, never the one to want it,
But someone got me to follow through, collar blue I'm on it,
And they been the past on the weekend,
So I dun threw the trash in the deep end, I thought about it

Why you tryna condone, messages in the air,
I be sitting alone, with nuttin' up in my ear,
With something that I could hear, something telling me no,
Energy in my square with circles I should've known, and I'm

Pro Am, I go HAM, youngin's in this game,
But the focus ain't the program, poetry in motion,
Celebrating nothin' feeling broken,
Reaping what you sew, got a blanket I dun Woven. broham

They say there's two people in life,
Those who got it, and those who wanting to get it
And I feel I'm kinda both in a way, so i'm kinda winning,
Season in the pocket and I ain't spit in a minute, I'm kidding
