'PICTURE THIS' - A NEW BEATBOX TRACK BY DANNY LADWA

As well as being the founding director of School of Beatbox, Danny Ladwa, is an avid songwriter and performer. He started writing lyrics at the age of 11 and has toured the globe as both a singer and a beatboxer.

He recently recorded and released a new track titled 'Picture This'. The song is highly lyrical as he expresses harsh realities and the effects of social media and technology on young people today. 


Watch 'Picture This' Lyric Video...

Danny received Arts Council funding to spend time exploring sound frequencies and it was during this period of study that he found himself drawn to a very low tone of 40Hz. 40Hz is the type of frequency that you 'Feel' as much as you hear and there are various studies that have been undertaken around the effect that this frequency has on both animals and humans. 

Danny said that he had an undoubtedly strong positive feeling when he listened to the tone of 40Hz so he got in his studio, recreated the tone and started to build 'Picture This' on top of it. 

He beatboxed the beat, recorded lead and backing vocals, wrote the lyrics, played piano as well as a Korg MS20 synthesizer. Danny also wrote the string parts which he sent to his good friend and collaborator DeeLinde in Austria to play both cello and violin on the track.

The track was released on 22nd April 2022! You can stream / buy / download it as well as more of Danny Ladwa's music from here - https://linktr.ee/dannyladwa 


PICTURE THIS (LYRICS)

LOOK OUT MY WINDOW I SEE STRESS

PEOPLE STRETCHING THEMSELVES, TORTUROUS

THE SUFFERING

IT’S WRITTEN ALL OVER THE FACES

SOMEBODY TALK TO US

THEY’RE COMING TO CORNER US

I SEE IT IN MOST OF US

THERE’S AN ARMY OUT THERE WE DON’T SEE

THEY’RE PRESSURING, PUSHING AND PRESSING THE BUTTONS

INVESTING IN INFILTRATION

ENTERING UNDER THE SKIN

ATTACKING THE THOUGHT-WAVES

OUR DIGITAL FREEDOMS ARE IMPRISONING US

WHERE’S THE SUPPORT FOR THE LITTLE’UNS

FOR THE CHILDREN

SUICIDE’S UP, SO ARE PHOTO FILTERS

REALISE WHAT COULD BE EATING AWAY IN THE MIND OF A CHILD

WITH THEIR EYES ON A SCREEN, LOOKING CALM AND SERENE BUT

SUICIDES UP AND SO ARE PEOPLE THAT’D KILL FOR A BREAK

OUT THERE HUSTLING, FEELING THE COLD

TELL YOU MY STORY OR JUST WHAT I’VE BEEN TOLD

FED BY THE MEDIA

PEOPLE TOO READY TO GET VOCAL ON SOCIALS

IMMEDIATELY BROKEN DOWN 

WITH COMMUNICATION

WHEN IT COMES TO THE REAL TALK, REAL LIFE

THIS DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT

YO MAN IS SHE ALRIGHT?

LOOKING INTO SPACE WITH A TEARY EYE

TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF LIFE.


SEARCHING FOR TRUTH

CLICK CLICK SCROLL DON’T SEE THE ABUSE

WHERE IS THE VISION? CHECK HOW MANY VIEWS

SCOPE IS ON US AND IT’S HARD TO REFUSE BEING A TARGET

AND IF THE WORLD IS A MARKET WE ARE THE PRODUCT

SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER

THE LINE GETS BIGGER 

YOU MIGHT CONSIDER

A BIRDS EYE VIEW ZOOM OUT ON THE PICTURE

BUT PICTURE THIS

THE YOUTH OF TODAY HAVING SOMETHING TO SAY 

ABOUT BEING ON THE VICTIM LIST

QUESTIONING NOW LIKE A SEED IN THE GROUND

SO IT BLOOMS IN THE FUTURE

THE NEXT GENERATION COULD BE THE SUPERHEROES

THAT BRING THIS SPHERE HOPE

PASS DOWN THE BATON, TAP IN THE CODE

CYCLE OF LIFE ONE CIRCULAR ROAD


IF YOU CAN SEE HER PAIN, REACH OUT REACH OUT

IF YOU CAN SEE HER PAIN, REACH OUT REACH OUT REACH OUT


OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OH

OH OH OH REACH OUT
