This song is about living how you want to. Despite who the world may want you to be, never lose self. I wanted the visual to highlight the fact that music is also art. Musicians and visual artists live similar lives.
For audio only, see our previous post.

Our good friend Junia-T cruises around the beaches of Los Angeles on some choice vehicles in his new video for “LEGOLEGO (Get Up!)”, featuring Yancy Deron and TassNata. The high-energy track is taken from his stellar 2014 album, Eye See You. Take in the full project in our previous post.
Our fam Junia-T returns with a self-produced gem called “Eye Mean”, featuring West Coast Canadians Tassnata and Brevner.

Deep in the rainforests of the Amazon, the Achuar and the Huaorani Indians are assembled for their daily ritual. Every morning, each member of the tribe awakens before dawn, and once gathered together in that twilights hour, as the world explodes into light, they share their dreams.
This is not simply an interesting pastime, an opportunity for storytelling: to the Achuar and the Huaorani, the dream is owned not by the dreamer alone, but collectively by the group, and the individual dreamer is simply the vessel the dream decided to borrow to have a conversation with the whole tribe.
The tribes view the dream as a map for their waking hours. It is a forecaster of what is to come for all of them, In dreams they connect with their ancestors and the rest of the universe. The dream is what is real. It is their waking life that is the falsehood.
Much like storytelling, Free .99 is a cosmic channel curated for the dream-chasers.
