DSLate Checking in………
Here at the Detroit Studio, i had the opportunity to meet a young and motivated student by the name of Carlito Smith aka Lito. I had the pleasure of engineering Lito’s entire EP here at the Detroit Studio and i found out that Lito had an amazing talent that most people don’t have. Introducing “The Valley’s Untold Love Story” by Lito………..
The Valley’s Untold Love Story is the tale of various obstacles I’ve encountered and realizations I have made about myself and life in the past year. I use the term “Valley” to explain where I feel my life has been leading up to now. I was on path to the mountain, but in order to get there I had to go through the low place where things aren’t as pretty. In my Valley I encountered Hate, Love, and Envy, which ultimately lead me to a place of tranquility (Tranquillo) where I was able to see the true Beauty in everything I encountered. As I stated before the Valley isn’t pretty, you will go through some things that either make you or break you, and one of those things for me was the passing of a childhood friend of mine in early 2017. At that point in my life it was hard to see the good in things, because I couldn’t understand why or how someone could take the life of a 16 year old in cold blood. After times like this I was able to extract the beauty in every situation that life threw at me. As I began to write I became more and more aware of what my purpose in life was, and as I began to walk in that purpose, doors began to open for me and I found myself transitioning from my place in the valley to a higher ground. “The Valley’s Untold Love Story” vividly depicts what I see in my mind as a young man from Detroit, Michigan. Around here everything isn’t always great and dandy, but if there was one thing i hope someone learns from this EP, I hope it would be for them to find the beauty that was placed within them, and to use that to build up others and inspire change, regardless of where they are from, what they look like, or how old they are, and to always remember there is Beauty in everything. -Lito
