_____

“Love Without Domination” was conceived immediately following the announcement of The United States’ presidential elect on November 9th, 2016. Many of the tracks were quickly recorded directly in reaction towards those events, or simply submitted to aid the voice in protest & solidarity.

The compilation was created in order to serve the purpose of establishing hope & progress throughout our artistic community and beyond - to widen the scope of the unification & understanding that must be put forth together in order to fight the growing establishment of, and the new tangible faces of fascism, white nationalism, media & corporate corruption, and the inconceivable bigotry and threat towards marginalized communities & our environment respectively.

With the growing co-option of online spaces and diminished liberation of the Internet, the underlying ethos of Zoom Lens defined as "digital punk rock spirit" has become further nuanced. Ultimately, the label seeks to navigate through all spaces to cultivate a community, which intends to create diversified music intended to disrupt and subvert commonality in its portrayal of collapsing the binary between pop & experimental music and its typically perceived emotional resonance.

No matter how raw and unrelenting such expression is, whether or not it will be upheld by the perceived standard of electronic music and the validation of conservative publications & gatekeepers - we will tear down the stylized face of propagated hate & reductive complacency, and refuse to submit towards labeling anything that promotes it as less so.

Through art, make dialogue and break boundaries. When dealing with an oppressive force who is meant to pacify our feelings, self-expression is rebellion. Utilize your skills, your privileges, and your strengths in all forms. Militarize yourself with unforgiving self-love and radical passion.

We hope to be the soundtrack to fuel your motivation and urgency to take action in any way you can in your current situation.

We are pissed and we came here to dance.

Track Name: Meishi Smile - Hate Floods Slow
here is no “god" in your loneliness
there is no pain in your forgiveness
when the roses bloom in mid-june
will they pucker with the decaying of life?

no more death filled with long days
no more ego filled with love
no drugs to kill you softly
no more numbness

(drown you slow)

you and i are always
endlessly playing
in a ballet of masochism
apple seeds of virginity
have begun to lose its taste
the truth of apathy is sewn

no more blood filled with blind hate
no more highs turning slow
no sex cure to fill you softly
no more forgiveness

(kill you slow)

do you
believe in hope
do you
believe in hostility
obedient greed
tender affection
of the hopelessly bound

no naivety filled with dull days
no more broken shards to hold
but i feel so high & i feel so helpless
it’s so blinded, now i’m cold
it’s always aching, it’s why i love you
the joy of your fragile, oppressive hope
Track Name: Atani - BerningMan
When I saw him on that stage tonight
I saw so many full of hope.
And in the crowd, we was off on ecstasy.
And someone had been taking the kush.
And you and I will die for the rights, that they will rectify.
And somehow this will make us equals.
And as the hero who we desperately need this time :

He never rejected the good.

When I saw him on that stage tonight.
I saw so many full of hope.
And then he shot me like a rocket man!
You and I will die for the rights, that they will rectify.
And somehow this will make us equals.
And as the hero who we desperately need this time:
Love always trumps out the hate!
Track Name: Comrade(s) - Drowned
Ahogándose en la don de la preciosa ira y desesperación.
As escupido miedo en el color de mi piel
Dígame ¿sientes seguro en tu racismo? ¿Sientes seguro en ataques sexuales? ¿Sientes seguro en tu blanco América? Porque no sentimos seguro.
Y Yo perdido claridad de que es mi casa de que es mi lugar de que es vida.
Afortunadamente tengo miedo. Afortunadamente tengo ira. Afortunadamente tengo desesperación.
Dígame. ¿Sientes seguro con mi gente? ¿Sientes seguro con mujeres? ¿Sientes seguro en tu distopía? Porque nosotros sentemos seguro.
Vas ver la resistencia.
Si te preocupa tu preciosa comunidad. Entonces mata a su líder impío.

-

Drowning in the gift of the precious anger and despair.
You've spat fear onto my skin color.
Tell me. Do you feel safe in your racism? Do you feel safe in your sexual attacks? Do you feel safe in your white america? Because we don't feel safe.
I've lost clarity of what's my home, what's my place, what's my life.
Fortunately I have anger. Fortunately I have fear. Fortunately I have despair.
Tell me. Do you feel safe around my people? Do you feel safe around women? Do you feel safe in your dystopia? Because we feel safe.
You'll see the resistance.
If you care about your precious community. Then kill your unfit leader.
