This week, Anthony Tyler of The Last American Vagabond had the opportunity to sit down with musician, Mike Slap, aka Symmetry, to discuss some of his upcoming music, his previous work with producer Ryan Lewis & Macklemore and the Junky LP, the trials and tribulations of mastering an art, and even some comprehensive metaphysical analysis.
Mike Slap provides influences of boom-bap hip hop with electronic, classical, and rhythm & blues in a seamlessly blended orchestration that is sure to catch the attention of the majority of listeners. And for good reason.
Not only are his lyrics philosophical (dealing with some topics such as existential dilemmas, drug addiction, and the personal dedication necessary to achieve peace in life), Mike proved to be equally eloquent in conversation. Topics touched on include: physics, psychoanalysis, Buddhism, Taoism and alchemy. Look for Symmetry’s new single, Inside My Crown,” airing on WKUP, Scheduled for release March 31st, and be sure to tune into WKUP to hear Mike Slap aka Symmetry & many more great, independent artists.
A journalist and author from Anchorage, Alaska, Anthony Tyler aims to twist the knife in both phony new-age ideals and scientific materialism by drawing attention to the rich heritage of esoteric science throughout history. Far from being “satanist,” the esoteric (i.e. occultism or comparative religion) marks the beginning of mathematics, astronomy, psychology, medicine, and even politics. Esoteric science represents a cache of little-known knowledge detailing how to decipher the human's unconscious mind--and the unconscious mind is essentially everything that the human mind is not considering at any given moment.
