about

In a fully pro recording studio, set up in a basement building in Berlin, Germany. Dennis Kuhn of NonPareil Studio is awake at 4 am, with his fingers burning on the strings of his Telecaster guitar; to build background music around the smooth vocals of Shumba Youth & harmonic vocals of Shaun Michael, this EP has been created with a blazing passion for music life & poetic forms of lyrics. We the Positive Vibes Crew have bought you an independent release, strictly from the influences of the African diaspora. We have fused together elements of Reggae, Rock, Dancehall, Hip Hop, RnB creating a new sound. We titled this EP ‘Around the World’ as it was created in view of the places we’ve been. UK, Poland, Italy, Spain, Ibiza, Germany, China, Jamaica, this is for you.

Track Name: Positive Vibes Crew - Shaun Michael & Shumba Youth - Reach for the Stars
Shaun Michael
Who is really living and who is really focused, is your mind gone, devoured by the locusts & shut down by the barriers
& the close doors, all of the things that you hope for
shame freedom was a thing they never really saw
but if your human, just.

Shumba Youth
Cmon & reach, reach for the stars, then you find out who you really are.
Reach reach for the stars, then you find out who you really are.

Shaun Michael
Whats the difference between you & I, I? reach for the stars my head is at the bass of each guitar, i feel like a spaceship racing through the stars, i see the signs, Scorpio, Leo, Capricorn no answers, so no matter how they try to knock me down i keep on fighting, looking at the stars, above the horizens its all in time, it's all in your mind, right behind? The clogs of time. I set the level now lower the tone, patrons on the table, raise then glass pour the juice, its like Siera Leon, close to the top & were not even on. on. on.

Shumba Youth
Cmon & reach, reach for the stars, then you find out who you really are. Then you find out who you really are.

I see nough, kids having babies, youths going crazy a lot of our peers are pushing up dasies, times getting wicked and the future is hazy
even when this system seems to faze me,
no time for stop, no time for lazy, each & every day life still amaze me, (life still amaze me) lift up your head its a bright day, no hot stepping
we moving the right way, player haters don't you even try me
the whole of them going on dirty sheisty,
I just, dust, dust dust off my shoulders were
just just stepping it bolder, we just don't care
we straight & clear, moving yes we grooving elevate without a fear.

Bridge,

Reach out..

Shaun Michael

This is the vibe we bring right around the entire world

Reach out

Yes Iyah you know seh we keep it bopping & a sway

Shumba Youth
Reach mek mi reach out woii, reach mek mi reach out there,
Reach mek mi reach out there. woii, Reach out!

Shaun Michael

All i ever seem to talk about is stars, but they seem to inspire me,
where im at right now its hard, but im the last of a dying breed
i left the winter with a broken compass, but now the summer is mine
navigation like Christopher Colobus, don't show no star signs
im running from the hands of the time, but im a master mind of destination
on the boat looking through the peep hole of my scope,
looking at the stars my destination,
I set the level, now lower your tone, patrons on the table, raise the glass & pour the juice, its like sierra leone, we close to the top & were not even on.

Track Name: Chill out - Shumba Youth & Shaun Michael
Shumba Youth
My girl chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out
Then we elevate without a doubt
Chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out
And then we elevate without a doubt.

Shaun Michael
If love is war then I'm all for the shoot out,
bruise my body with the grazing bullet from your fire arm,
send the troops out.
Bid a war of injustice when we, disagree,
we'll smile in the carnage we are a paradox,
I'll harness your torso when you have them weak knees
If sex is agony, then naturally pain is love.
No promises or politics,
just intertwine your thighs around my life,
for the next twenty five.

Shumba Youth
My girl chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out
And then we elevate without a doubt.
Chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out.
And then we elevate without a doubt.
It's easy like one, two, three
It's easy like doh reh mi
So just chill out, let your love spill out, spill out, and then we elevate without a doubt

In this frame of mind, I'm not dealing with mind games
complex, simplicity we're thinking just the same
Keep this synonymous, no need for a name.
Then we moving as we groove down the lane.

Shaun Michael
You lost it, will you ever find it,
See i cosign with your darkness,
Lighten my eyes with, this sexy sidekick
your vibe is eccentric, pretentious at times,
it's lust but walls collide when you get violent.

My girl chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out
And then we elevate without a doubt.
Chill out, chill out, let your love spill out, spill out.
And then we elevate without a doubt.
It's easy like one, two, three
Its easy like doh reh mi
So just chill out, let your love spill out, spill out, and then we elevate without a doubt.

Shumba Youth
Hold tight

CHORUS
Shumba Youth
Those were the days
Seem so far away but i can see them now,
Drifting on a memory and floating on a cloud
If you want it you can get it any way any how
Said those were the days
Seem so far away but i can see them now,
Drifting on a memory and floating on a cloud
If you want it you can get it any way any how
Those were days
Seem so far away but i can see them now,
Sitting on a memory and floating on a cloud
If you want it you can get it any way any how

VERSE
Shumba Youth
See I remember the days when life was so simple
Gal pinch your cheeks complimenting your dimples
Never have a worry or a doubt or a fear
Always in a hurry but you never move fast
Always in a hurry never think 'bout the fast
Dreaming of the days when you would be the boss
You were ever ready done ready straight set to blast, to blast

CHORUS
Shumba Youth
Those were the days
Seem so far away but i can see them now,
Drifting on a memory and floating on a cloud

Better remember your past to get where you're going
Eyes glisten reminiscing on the life when you're growing

CHORUS

Track Name: Help me - Shumba Youth & Shaun Michael
Shaun Michael
I sinned again, the floor beneath my back
The winning feeling isn't present, wishing i could be
a passer by & cut my eye, like Help You, may just another time
MP3's play with the he say and the she say & all i really need.

Shumba Youth
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my heart from bleeding.
I'm pleading I'm pleading, I'm bleeding I'm bleeding
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving.

Shaun Michael
It's the diamond life, i roll the dice,
lucky 7's and it's broad way in the night life
where the diamonds strain your eye site.
Hold up
I'm bleeding, i'm bleeding & i'm dreaming i'm dreaming
Reality is to deceiving can you just help me
It all remains the same, you can never win
unless you play the game
Champagne mixed with vibrant lights
place a bet, all in tonight
I'm just another Walter White,
Imma take it all, take a risk for paradise,
I just wanna live the life in paradise, uh.

Shumba Youth
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my heart from bleeding.
I'm pleading I'm pleading, I'm bleeding I'm bleeding
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving.

You need to help me now, before I'm sinking too deep,
I'm trying to reach the top of the clouds, but the mountains to steep
Afraid to shut my eyes in case I permanently sleep.
Eyes think as i think, Over think under think.
Don't push me Don't push me, I'm right upon the brink
I'm more than just a figure or a chain & a link
A brother, or sister, it don't really matter, I'm dealing with reality not hype & chitter chatter.

Shumba Youth
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my heart from bleeding.
I'm pleading, I'm pleading, I'm bleeding I'm bleeding
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving.


Shaun Michael
Its been emotional like the four seasons of a year,
Rain, sunshine, cold hearts warm in the summer time
the beauty of life, pain can't compare,
to my despair, my mom told me i was bad like my uncle was
the perfect pair, illustrious & lusting women with gun possession
same obsession fast money my confession, from the grass seeds won't grow, but flown over by turtle doves.
One day, my mother told me one day I'd be murdered just like my uncle was
it's tough love, this is how we living.

Shumba Youth
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my heart from bleeding.
I'm pleading I'm pleading, woah I'm bleeding I'm bleeding
Just a little help I am needing, to stop my mind from leaving.

Nana na now, hey, nana na now.
