It was strange to have no self - to be like a little boy left alone in a big house, who knew that now he could do anything he wanted to do, but found that there was nothing that he wanted to do… »F. Scott Fitzgerald

Berlin-based producer Lotic manipulates his music like a movie director does a thriller. On his 2014 mix for Janus, everything starts out smooth until he layers synths like swarming bees on top of a trap beat, pops a note that sounds like a faraway, dying scream and hollows Beyoncé’s voice out over clamoring applause so that she bellows like the devil incinerating the damned. As with rollercoasters and slasher porn, there’s a particular joy that comes from feeling unnerved at the same time you’re being entertained, and Lotic, born J’Kerian Morgan, understands that more than most. With his music, the dance floor can be a space for as wide a range of feelings as the human experience allows. “I want to use club music to play with people’s emotions,” he says. “I want to make people mad, I want to get people horny. Sex can be scary. You can be horny and pissed off at the same time. It just means you’re going to go home with someone and take it out on them.”

In fact a mature person does not fall in love, he rises in love. The word ’fall’ is not right. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. They cannot manage and they cannot stand – they find a woman and they are gone, they find a man and they are gone. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have that integrity to stand alone.

A mature person has the integrity to be alone. And when a mature person gives love, he gives without any strings attached to it: he simply gives. And when a mature person gives love, he feels grateful that you have accepted his love, not vice versa. He does not expect you to be thankful for it – no, not at all, he does not even need your thanks. He thanks you for accepting his love. And when two mature persons are in love, one of the greatest paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone; they are together so much so that they are almost one. But their oneness does not destroy their individuality, in fact, it enhances it: they become more individual.


Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. How can you dominate the person you love? Just think over it. Domination is a sort of hatred, anger, enmity. How can you think of dominating a person you love? You would love to see the person totally free, independent; you will give him more individuality. That’s why I call it the greatest paradox: they are together so much so that they are almost one, but still in that oneness they are individuals. Their individualities are not effaced – they have become more enhanced. The other has enriched them as far as their freedom is concerned.


Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.
