There has always been drugs, drums and shamanic trances throughout the ages, we are just a bit more scientific about it these days, but the same basic principle applies.

That is, to get off your head!

The law is if something dates it becomes innocent. Old primitive innocence (OPI) is biological and technological evolution because the further you go back in time the more primitive life was and animals (such as humans) were, therefore, relatively the more innocent they were. For example, in the 1980s we had no internet or mobile phones and we did not understand smart things like FaceTime and Spotify, therefore we were much more primitive and innocent in the 1980s than the 2020s. By this relatively recent example, we can see that this innocence becomes stronger or purer the further you go back in time. Therefore, imagine how primitive and innocent prehistoric people were? You may ridicule the recent past, such as the ‘rock’ music of the 1970s, however, what is the point in saying ‘Daaaang! That is soooo last week!’ to Lower Palaeolithic man, Tiktaalik roseae or single-celled forms? I figured out that the further you go back in time the more innocent people were from Matthew 21:9.

The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

It occurred to me that who on Earth would say “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” today except sarcastically? No one! For example, regarding a lazy teenager, we might exclaim “Hosanna in the highest heaven! Graham is up before noon!” Therefore, this led me to the conclusion that the people of Jesus Christ’s day or the people of the past generally (who genuinely said such things as “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” without a shred of sarcasm) therefore, must have been much more innocent than us today?

With their fast and precise electronic music, turntables, DJ controllers and sound systems etc, DJs are very advanced and cutting-edge etc and they are so unbelievably current, up to date and in the know, in that they know and play which songs come out literally every day or week etc. All DJs today are always the cutting-edge, cosmic, electrified and ultramodern, however, ultimately everything dates. There is no avoiding it, you will become relatively primitive and attain innocence at some point, just give it 100 years. Why try to avoid the inevitable? No one, can fight against the passing of time. Therefore, relax, calm down, be alright with the past and accept that you will one day become relatively primitive, innocent, classical, divine and holy like Plato and Socrates etc. Embrace the past, your ancestors and your inevitable and relative primitivism. Hence, that is why I have done the opposite and I have chose the innocent, old, ancient and prehistoric. That is why I chose the name DJ Innocence. So why did I choose to describe my DJing style as ‘cutting-edge rock’, when all that I mix is trance and techno music? Because considering advanced and modern trance and techno music, it is ironic that the actual rock music of the 1960s and 1970s is dated and obsolete, yet taking into account Lower Palaeolithic man, Tiktaalik roseae or single-celled life forms, relatively and in the scheme of things, 50 or 60 years is a blink of an eye. It’s pathetic how things date and how we ridicule the recent past. I am tired of things running away, that is why I have done the complete opposite. I have chosen the past instead of the future. I have chosen to go back in time instead of forward. Also ‘cutting-edge rock’ has another double ironic meaning because DJs, trance and techno music are unbelievably the forefront, current and cutting-edge, in that DJs are literally up to date with the latest releases day by day and week by week, however, the irony is that prehistoric man used flint and rock or stone scrapers and choppers etc literally as a cutting-edge. It’s sarcasm and irony. It’s taking the piss really. I went clubbing in the late nineteen nineties, places like Gatecrasher in Sheffield and Ibiza in 1999, and there seemed to be more ‘magic’ in the nineties compared to today. This is probably because of the build up to the millennium and because everything was novel and innocent. There was more faith and belief in the second millennium. Although it was kind of unspoken, the trance and clubbing scene was more about Jesus Christ in the twentieth century than it is today or post-millennium. The kids today cannot and will never truly understand the power of the second millennium. I believe trance music and clubbing always should be about Jesus Christ.
