In the third episode of DRØME Presents CRUSH, meet New York based musician and “translucent star” Quiet Luke. Director Tyler Mitchell gives us a textured portrait, using collaged images sewn together by Quiet Luke’s comforting and soothing vocals which offer us the same sense of familiarity and wonder as one of his greatest inspirations, The World of Walt Disney. “I think above all; beauty is what I want people to experience. I think there’s a lot of beauty in ugliness too. Especially today”.
Get to know this beautiful soul in the video above and make sure you check out his new single “I Wanna Go” right here.
In the making of DRØME we hope to showcase a community of doers and nourish an attitude of empathy in a world that teaches us to pass judgment rather than practice kindness. The stories, images, and people shared in this magazine are an amalgamation of perspectives often overlooked or explicitly excluded from art and media worlds. The dearth of diverse identities and viewpoints within the arts is harrowing, especially for a young generation that is fighting its hardest to overcome conservative notions of order ultimately practiced as acts of discrimination against the very people and things we find most inspiring. In DRØME, the featured creators and creations encourage us to never shy away from who we are and what we want. Each artist, in sharing their story, embodies their own definition of agency. Against a mainstream ideology that indoctrinates patriarchal, capitalist, and hateful theories turned into policy, the artists in our first issue represent the ways in which art can take power back from society's denigrating control.
