B-Complex - Beautiful Lies
“‘Beautiful Lies’ helped me gather confidence and come out as my true self. The song is lyricless, and as it became viral sensation, people started uploading videos with montages, often perfectly picking images that described what I felt as I made it, proof to me, that music is indeed universal language. It became it's own entity, and I felt like a proud parent watching it influence peoples’ lives. Many of you came to tell me how it was the song that opened the world of drum & bass for them, or how it helped them to overcome lows in their lives.” - B-complex
