"My vision of hip-hop is non-traditional, and pretty fucking bleak," explains Texture. "I’m not talking about the bleakness of schemes and unemployment, of guns and gangs, because that would be disengenuous. That wasn’t my life. My lyrics are about the imagined dystopias of cyberpunk. The philosophical alienation caused by modern life and society; by failed relationships and doomed, psychologically fucked perspectives. I use my music to purge, and hopefully to reveal a few chinks of light coming through the boarded-up windows of abandoned buildings in the grim meathook future. Goth-swag anthems."
