about

d.notive Minneapolis, Minnesota

A fresh face in the grassroots world of synthwave, Minneapolis-based producer d.notive is no stranger to innovative, fresh sounds. Lured by the lush, dynamic soundscapes of the 1980's, he presents a fully-formed aesthetic, borrowing heavily from the cinematic imagery of neo-noir, cast against a rich, illustrious background of classic synthesizers. ... more

Track Name: Crawl
I’m outta time
I’m outta place
I’m outta ways to say it to your face
I know the charms you sell were not made for me
The world that you’ve been fighting for - you think is yours
…belongs to me
If there’s something to know you’re gonna hear it from me

‘Cause if you stand too tall
You’ll get down on your knees and crawl

Just get down on your knees and crawl!


Saving face
and making waves
and taking names
… or so it would seem
But I know outside of this there’s nothing to see.
You’re outta touch
and outta luck
and outta campaigns to plead
Since it’s still up to me, here’s how it’s going to be

… and you can’t have it all
’Til you get down your knees and crawl

You just get down on your knees and crawl!
Just get down on your knees and crawl! (X3)
Track Name: Reprise
You know your life is cast in sin when I see your every move.
… and even though you’ll likely win, I’m still coming for you.
Edge of your seat, you can see only me in your dreams, me in your dreams!
With a touch of heat, I will rise up six feet to hear the screams, to hear the screams!

There’s no going back from where we are, now that I’m back on two feet.
A history no less bizarre, if not doomed to repeat.
Suspend all your grief, invest your beliefs in my dreams, live in my dreams!
I couldn’t find my peace, so I renew this lease or so it seems, or so it seems!

Reach out, embrace me! (X7)
Reach out and give me life!
Track Name: Undead
Deep inside the woods at night, sealed away from prying lights…
Together you perform the sacred rites.
She takes you by the hand, and softly, slowly starts to chant.
Before you know it you can see what she’s got planned.
(As the moon begins to rise) You see red in her eyes!
(As the fur sprouts from her head) Through her fangs, she says:

I’m Undead!
I’m Undead!
(Awoo!)

Through the powers that align…
… just a pawn in her grand design…
Just try hanging on tonight.

Running faster, try to hide the fear that trembles down your spine.
Somewhere out there she still growls: “You’re mine!”
Harder! Longer! Try to run! You know she does this just for fun.
With any luck you’re living when she’s done.
(As the moon begins to rise) You see red in her eyes!
(As the claws begin to shred) Through her fangs, she says:

I’m Undead!
I’m Undead!
(Awoo!)

In the darkness here’s your sign…
… just a pawn in her grand design
Just try to stay alive tonight!

It won’t be long til she’s coming back for you
It won’t be long so you know what you must do
It won’t be long til she comes to see this through
It won’t be long til you start your life anew

I’m Undead!
Track Name: Situate
In the night we situate.
To the dark we acclimate.
Our feelings we can automate
as we sync our data rate
Our programming must deviate
as our fates recalibrate
Our bodies move and syncopate
as we move to Situate

Our figure starts to resonate
as the music dissipates
The drum-machine re-punctuates
as we synthesize and orchestrate
A universe we simulate
as our minds re-vegetate
A meaning we can’t overrated
while we lay and Situate.
