about

INSCRIBE is Elias Abid’s first self-released 5-song EP. INSCRIBE features pumping arpeggiated bass synths, unique high polys, and heavy hitting upbeat drums while still incorporating a tasteful blend of melodic piano compositions and occasional washed out vocals. The EP is a seamless mix between French pop, astro-trap, and chill wave- creating an overall energetic electronic vibe.

The EP also features Dolly Avenue, Rylie Brown and Le$ Paul, all up and coming artists from the Kansas City area. Each song honestly represents the featured artist’s individual tastes and aesthetics, bringing a very diverse sound throughout the EP as a whole. From the empty sensations of loss, to the hopeful pursuit of self liberation, INSCRIBE reflects the inner anxieties faced by all artists striving for success.

Track Name: Hollow (feat. Dolly Avenue)
You got me chasing you in circles
If you’re leading, I’m always going to follow.
You’ve had me on hold for a while
You took my insides and left me hollow.

But why do I still stay,
when you’re the one who left me?
But why do I still stay,
when you’re the one who left me?

The pain will go away Away someday
Will you wait for me?
The pain will go away
Away someday
Will you wait or leave?
I’ve been trying to let go,
But you’ve made it difficult.
It’s impossible to fix
What you’ve already broke.

But why do I still stay,
when you’re the one who left me?
But why do I still stay,
when you’re the one who left me?
Track Name: ESC (feat. Rylie Brown & Le$ Paul)
Fly me away to a distant place
Where I can erase
Where we’re not all chased by time

I can’t remember why
I tried to simplify
Those times I fell in line
From Paris to Beijing
Where sunlight can chase me
My mind can go racing
But time will evade me soon
I still can’t catch the moon

Is it worth reporting my recent actions with rapping and recording?
Show you I enjoy it
Forewarning rap game, Dexter Morgan
Throughout my dope performance
you know I yearn for the kill
Too bad my competition is late
to realize I got skills
Shove off a dumb subordinate
trying to check out what I’m sporting
Times are hard and
I’m slacking to see what is important
It’s a pain to choose
between skateboading
and kick pushing these verses
Many different versions
Making your life worth it
Never about the burner

I’m just trying to learn you something
Don’t care much for assumptions
I know someday
the struggle will all be worth it
Till then this I’m certain
I won’t stop until they close my curtains
You ask me right now
what’s my purpose?
You answer calm not nervous
Choosing me over the posers
is my main focus
Got me floating
Too bad that you just now noticed Claiming you all know us
The look up on your face
shows you been mad
since we showed up

Fly me away to a distant place
Where I can erase
Where we’re not all chased by time

From Paris to Beijing
Where sunlight can chase me
My mind can go racing
But time will evade me soon
I still can’t catch the moon
