about

Kobie Berkhouts' first EP as Boi Mesa; "Upsides and Insides".

Not as much a cohesive story filled release, as it is an effort to hone vocalism, structurism and sound engineering/design.

Upsides is an EP that showcases a few of Boi Mesa's many musical styles; vocally and instrumentally. Inspired by more than a handful of genres, artists and styles from all over the world. Spending over 3 years of living as a recluse on teaching oneself different music discplines (never stopping to do so either) and working on multiple projects which are also still to come.

This release leaves Kobie to focus mostly on his vocal/lyrical and soundmixing/mastering skills and makes way for some fresh and creative producers from the Netherlands like;

Electronic/hiphop, beat master #Filosofischestilte
Boombap instrumental beats producer #EEVEE
Murky & deep/soulfull dancebeats by #Contreau (Now also known as #Ice Viper
and 1 track by upcoming techno/disco producer; Niek Ta Mère

This was a great and fun collaborative project to work on and also part of a beautifull ongoing learning process.

Track Name: Unconditional Love (Prod. FilosofischeStilte)
Hey son why go there
Hey sis why so scared

Where u from
I'm asking out of curiosity

Positive gesture
Not from animosity


You dumb dumb, its un- unconditional
Why u run from unconditional LOVE


Please make noise if it gets ruff. Make a choice don't just act tuff
Word is bond. If you don't know, now you know what's wrong

Shake the scrubs off. Make some tough sauce made of love
Pause, stalled in front of truces
Let's be kindred and not lose it

You dum dum, its un- unconditional. Why u run from unconditional LOVE

I got u
I got u
I gotcha back son
I gotcha back sis
I gotcha back
Track Name: So Nice (Prod. Niek Ta Mère)
It's alright
it's so nice
it's sublime

Fluently caress, not just one mistress
Distress calls are useless
In carelessness, leave it to rest
The mess calls, the rest falls instead

It's alright
it's so nice
it's sublime

It's alright
it's so nice
It's a good price to pay

Lift up like hick ups and bring cups with vix rubs
Weary, woes away
Some other's mother smothered in butter
My covers are coloured
Rather be crazy.

Lucy is living, lucidity livid
The orifice giveth
Can also take with it

The start of an ending, a part of some mending
Or nothing left standing and everything's lending traits

It's alright
it's so nice
it's sublime
Track Name: Care (prod. Eevee)
I used to care too much, now I don't care I'm not fair.
Trippin over doorsteps, missing chances was always asking for answers or admission.
Was biased. I let the issues pass by. I wouldn't listen. At night the right to see clear wasn't permitted. Instead committed flight, respect less, headless and endless vain heads and hairdresses kept flat by caps.

Always doing this instead of that being a rat thinking I was doing sick raps. Falling for traps, got my paths blocked by so called homies always keeping me back.

Should I say what I wanted?!
(Is) that what u needed?!
Cuz I don't really wanna feed it...
Need be down, better mean it...

Gotta do something cuz I Care, I Care!
I promise you, or at least I think I do?!


I used to not care
Now I care too much it's not fair.
Efforts thwarted, sharing health n care but scarcely because its not afforded. My words of support get distorted. Walk a righteous path but retorted to neglect of my own needs as an effect. Tears kept, as I weep on the inside. But still care for all you motherfuckers joining this ride.

Or should I care for nothing?!
Lay bear for nothing?!
Care for something?!
Share something?!
Am I scared of something?!
Should I be more fair or something?!
Idunno, maybe cuz i think I'm scared of loving?!
Track Name: Martyrs (Hold up your hands) (Prod. Eevee)
There's always been one of us that understood, and for that, had to suffer the most by completely sacrificing their personal life...
So now let's,


Hold up our/your hands


Straight face, but comforting, brings harmony, he's suffering on the inside. Stern voice, calling, make difference, she sacrificed her insides.

Realized there's more to life than just us we all need justice.
There's bigger things above us and even though they're big(ger) they love us.

Given the strength to empower, its not nearly close enough. But we weren't just put here to make and devour, so put your motherfuckin hands up


Hold up your hands.


Freedom was handed to us by our predecessors and now we should carry on by fulfilling their dreams
Track Name: Which (Prod. Contreau)
Can't think about it
The longer I think about it


The further it gets
Less thoughts more left
A loud streak painted in touch
Waited

Flag for sound, sun for winter
a gift to both
Let it simmer
Question,
is the quest done?
Listened,
to these lessons


Can't think about it.
The longer I think about it.



No tact but no lack
Just thoughts with no tags
Im in a center maze
Syntax errors for days

My heads corked so what's the use?
In escort
by starboard
extorts
Next door...
Truce, now where's my mind?



Can't think about it.
The longer I think about it.
Track Name: Animal (Prod. FilosofischeStilte)
We're animals

U know what steps to take
The mess to make
Give me an estimate

Move it to the side so your legs'll shake
Promise you'll never fake
Then you'll need less of me

The Solace here is really good
Birds toasting...
Resonation in the woods
Or wherever feels right


Animal
Instinct
Thoughts are
Extinct
Jaws locked
Convergence, in sync
Animal,
we're animals.


Intimate,
into it.
Feeling wholesome...
Synergy
Maybe some trinity
Intuition's golden

Full of fauna
Look around
Starring excess...

Occupation prowlers,
don't make a sound
You gotta accept


Animal
Instinct
Thoughts are
Extinct
Jaws locked
Convergence, in sync
Animal,
we're animals.


We're animals
The Solace here is really good. Birds toasting...
Resonation in the woods. Or wherever feels right


Animal
Instinct
Thoughts are
Extinct
Jaws locked
Convergence, in sync
Animal,
we're animals.
Track Name: Into You ft Dilara Ashley (Prod. Contreau)
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I'm able to repeat
I'm into you

Willing to succeed
Give away my heart
If you want to I can tease
I'm into you

Do you, you do


Give me feedback and I'll feed you back
Whatever's broken I can fix it
You don't have to hold it in
Tell me what you want and I'll go with it

If your having troubles making decisions
I can help you to decide
I'll guide you along the way even when in working I'll make sure I have time


Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I'm able to repeat
I'm into you

Willing to succeed
Give away my heart
If you want to I can tease
I'm into you


I'm patient so I'll wait for you, we ain't gotta talk to understand
Don't know what to say to you anyway
Knowing that I'll be your friend

I feel which way your heading don't doubt
Our bodies will get along just just fine
Show me where you've never been
I'll make sure you'll get there


Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I'm able to repeat
I'm into you

Willing to succeed
Give away my heart
If you want to I can tease
I'm into you


You felt i wanted you too
Body language does not lie
What do you want me to do
I can read your every sign
And your every single move
We need to connect in life

Share,
Care
Love & freedom


Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I'm able to repeat
I'm into you

Willing to succeed
Give away my heart
If you want to I can tease
I'm into you

Do you, you do
Track Name: Seems True (Prod. Eevee)
Seems true


Devils in the details, slender fingers feel strange to the touch. Alley way ruff sketch, but black with white stripes. Not yet, even though it's overdue, we're over you. But u ain't over us, so u keeping rule. Blood black omen and its leaking out, waiting so keep an eye on ya secret spouse.


Seems true


You shadow and you temptation. Only my own shadow that i'll be raising. Two sides but, cut from same cloth. Craving glutton, indulging to the worst parts.
Whether it's nature or just mere instinct, pure hearted can be found in the nearest precinct. I'll elaborate, pure hearted. It's pure humans that got this fire started in the first place...
