‘Reach out and touch faith...’
“The first time I came across this line was at Tomorrowland, back in 2013, when it was flashing on a giant LED wall behind Eric Prydz. These five words from Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” stayed with me well after my return to reality and back home in India. Very rarely have I felt the need to wear an emotion on a T-shirt before this, and this is where the idea of Music Matters seeded from.
Music and lyrics deeply interlinked with that feeling — that indescribable feel — that floods through you when listening to an incredible, classic song; one that transcends decades.
The words, “Music Matters” are from the eponymous Faithless single and I’ve lost count on the number of times I’ve played the Axwell remix of this track. The composition and the lyrics have really inspired me over the years and I am so happy that something that I’ve started has these beautiful words at the helm of it.”
‘You told me to look much further, You told me to walk much more, You told me that music matters.’
