Skyllas Wang is Not like the other kids

Why am I not like the other kids?

I've never felt like I really was like anyone else growing up and I always did things in my own weird way. Being an adult, things are still the same way. I choose to make my own path rather than following ones already made. As a creator I find responsibility in my art to be a physical representation of the shifts that happen in life and to make people feel deep emotions that open their mind. One thing I want to teach people through my own being is to be open to taking risks, be open on the journey of finding yourself and be open to love.



Jordan Barone is Not like the other kids

"I am not like the other kids because of my willingness to bet it all on my craft. I eat, breath, sleep, dream, and live music. There’s pictures of me at the piano as early as 2 years old. I began producing with my brother at age 9. I was set on this path way before I knew how it would manifest itself in every aspect of my life. 


Everyone is entitled to their own version of happiness. For me, this would be to make a living by waking up, walking down to the studio, and creating for the largest portion of my day. I believe this is attainable, and this goal has set me in an organized, yet manic frenzy. 


I really took the jump when I began interning as an audio engineer at multiple recording studios in NYC. The city represented the largest of what my dreams could be. I was in rooms with the stars, so close, yet so far. But it drove me, kept me awake for more than 24 hours at a time. 


Not much changed when I made the switch to be an artist. I created around the clock. A hummed melody could turn into a full sonata, and no genre could bind me. I could be Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” over Wu-Tang inspired sampled drums. I'd dream of music, wake up, and rush to bring the idea to fruition. I even forget to eat sometimes, that’s how deep I get in it. I’ve been trying to find the balance so that I don’t lose all aspects of a social life, and so that I still spend quality time with family. But to be honest, it’s all just patchwork, and I’m itching until I can create again.


I’m sure there are some others like me, but I know they are rare. It's my wish to not only create, but have my inner voice and melodies heard, sometimes playing soft, or sometimes screaming boldly, but one way or another, stating clearly- I am not like the other kids. " - Jordan Barone

Here’s why I’m #NotLikeTheOtherKids :

I have an understanding that, to lose your “inner kid” is to lose your ability to dream. In order to fulfill your dreams you have to often resort back to that child-like mind set. Kids don’t hesitate so much. Kids don’t dwell on what can go wrong. Kids just do, based on what feels natural. For many, it’s the hardest and most terrifying thing to simply choose happiness. I guess what separates me from the other kids, is that I’ve finally relearned how to stare fear straight in the face and just do me, like a kid.


Prema 777 is Not like the other kids

I’m not like the other kids, I’m captivated by what we don’t notice. I’m inspired by the unknown and I’m driven by the unaccepted. I'm pretty awkward, & uncomfortable, often times overly friendly. I go for opposites and do things like root for the underdog. I look at failure as a friendship to my enlightenment & have always believed I can change the world. Everyday I’m 1 step closer to making a bigger change. Really I’m not like the other kids because I’ve pretty much always been ‘that other kid’.
