Looking for any way to promote the music of Kal and King, I knew I needed to reach out and make connections locally. That’s when I stumbled upon a promoter named Mert, who ran the underground EDM scene in Brooklyn. His creation, Anti-Social, seemed fitting considering where I was in my life at that time. As I drowned my sorrows in alcohol, I found myself reverting back to other bad habits, using Molly and Ecstasy as a means of “connecting with myself.” I was spiraling, but I couldn’t see it at the time. Mert and I hit it off immediately, and it wasn’t long before he offered to help promote our music. After a particularly wild night of partying and filming content, I knew I had to put together the next ERLAYTV promo video. Despite the lingering effects of the drugs and my exhaustion, I spent hours editing the footage we had shot. Waking up the next day, I felt like complete shit. But I knew I had to finish the promo video, so I mustered the energy to record the voiceover in one take. As I dragged the audio over the edit, and watched back, it felt as though a spirit was there, guiding me through this process. Everything I said in the video synced perfectly with the edit I had created. It was uncanny, almost as if the universe was telling me that I was on the right path. This strange, spiritual experience fueled my determination. I knew that if I could tap into this energy, I could achieve great things. After spending time in the cramped bedroom where Brenna lived, I felt as though if I kept my ears to the street, I could find a way to superstardom. But as local underground parties became part of my life, my anti-social nature would hinder my ability to be effective in networking, and I’d use this connection to further fuel my alcoholism.
