You can review the changes here. Rodina by Joanna Syze. Joanna's soaring vocals gives it unique melancholic mood. I have to admit it's been some time since someone's voice gave me chills, and here I got them right from the start. And those bass bends on the first song? It's like rocket fuel for my ears.

Even as Joanna is still housebound, the couple have built a life together based on bass, with both of them releasing lots of well-loved music in and They even collaborated on a Mob Tactics Viper release in , with Syze lending her extraordinary voice to the track Fatal Attraction.
She began in the darkest days of her illness, simply using music for the comfort and vibrational healing it provided. We were lucky enough to sit down with the once embattled and now stronger-than-ever artist. This LP was about three years in the making, right? What was the inspiration for doing it originally? I had always intended to do a second album after my Rodina LP in It was somewhere in the midst of this ongoing health crisis that I started feeling the need to express myself again and use music really as a form of healing.
I was 90 pounds and bedridden. Some good friends, Ivan Shopov Cooh and Zardonic talked to me at that point and just gave me the courage to work on music in whatever state I was in. That in itself would be interesting to experiment with and see how to develop and use sound to heal the central nervous system and brain neurons; mind, body and soul. So I just decided then and there that I had to start working on a new album project and any other music to help in my healing process.
My goal was to create a time capsule of this moment in my life that turned into years, to get part of myself back and to also connect with people who shared my vision. I purely embarked back on music for the love and healing. The vocals for the title track Surrender were some of the first vocals recorded in that time period. When I listen back to it now, it absolutely sounds like a different person and the lyrics talk about this battle I got wrapped up in.
It brings up a lot of emotions. You can feel that in some of the songs, a sort of despair and a melancholic vibe in the music and vocals as it was a very uncertain time medically for me. Other songs have a much more vibrant and strong vocal; those were the moments I was starting to win and regain more strength in my body and lungs. When I listen to those songs it brings me so much joy.
They seem more playful, and while the lyrics always tend to be sort of on the dark side, for me personally I find a lot of happiness and memories from working on those pieces with the guys. Some are terminal and many are not.
One common ground I tend to find in a lot of our stories is the very turbulent journey people have to endure before even getting a proper diagnosis. Along the way you get diagnosed with just about everything. But, behind closed doors, I was collapsing in hotel rooms after gigs and living in pain and fatigue. Many people are fortunate and find answers out fast but for me it took over 10 years and a constant deterioration of my body and health. We were told there was nothing they could do; that I was losing my life with no clear answers.
It was my idea around then to ask my doctor to test me for Lyme. Once I knew what was going on then the fight could really begin. I began to work with a good team plus emotional counseling and reiki, slowly I began to turn things around day by day. My husband Luke also helped save my life in ways I cannot even explain and still helps me to this day, he is my soulmate and just a wonderful man.
Most importantly I am still here and so thankful to keep fighting! With chronic illness you have to fight every day that you are given on this earth. It is your responsibility to not give up. I really had to be patient. I literally worked on the project from my bed, edited on the computer in my bed, recorded vocals from my bed, managing the project with all of the other artists from my bed.
I had to work around my body. On my better days, I was in full work mode and had those amazing moments of creativity that are just so addictive. I think it helped actually, if anything. The thing about this drum and bass community, I quickly learned, is that we really are a global family! The support I received via GoFundMe from people all over the world for medical funds shocked me.
The support I got for making music again has equally shocked and humbled me.
