After the great success of Jerk House Connection's "Velvet Touch" release, STALWART is quite proud to present you its 21st release from one influential member of the infamous broken beat UK combo BUGZINTHEATTIC: Orin Walters aka AFRONAUT. Orin heard the slam poetry of Suheir Hammad, a speech about the will power not to give into extreme ideological, political and/or religious undemocratic systems. He craftly joined his minimalist deep groove to emphasize it, giving birth to EYE WILL NOT, a track that is sure to be noticed in any sets. On the remix treatment, BUGZINTHEATTIC have been working on their classy broken beat treatment, whereas DJ RORK has been giving it an infectious hypnotic house touch with an heavy bass, while deep house man of the moment DJEFF AFROZILA relift it for the more South African House Music dance floors, and MISSOLESS did an amazing breakbeat rework.
Another quality and classy release from STALWART !!

I will not dance to your war drum.
I will not lend my soul nor my bones to your war drum.
I will not dance to your beating. I know that beat.
It is lifeless...
I know intimately that skin you are hitting
It was alive once, hunted, stolen, stretched...
I will not dance to your drummed up war.
I will not pop spin beak for you.
I will not hate for you or even hate you.
I will not kill for you.
Especially...I will not die for you.
I will not mourn the dead with murder nor suicide.
I will not side with you nor dance to bombs
because everyone else is dancing.
Everyone can be wrong.
Life is a right not collateral or casual.
I will not forget where I come from.
I will craft my own drum.
Gather my beloved near and our chanting will be dancing.
Our humming will be drumming.
I will not be played.
I will not lend my name nor my rhythm to your beat.
I will dance and resist and dance and persist and dance.
This heartbeat is louder than death.
Your war drum ain’t louder... than this breath.
