Canadian producer Tiga released his third track of the year on Friday. Tiga said of Woke;
“Woke is a song about freedom, specifically my freedom. About me, at the end of the earth, pushed towards a final act of emancipation: throwing my phone into the sea, and watching it sink. People may have a hard time empathizing with a successful DJ, or anyone who associates an annoying buzzword with anything approaching enlightenment. But I don’t think it’s that hard to relate to feeling like you’ve entered into a lopsided bargain with a magic box that is more or less designed to hack its way into your self-image.”
I think that actually a lot of us can empathise (or at least sympathise) with throwing our phones into the sea.
