Passion is palpable. It is the fire that burns from deep within. It might not be quantifiable per se but it can be felt, seen or heard and can manifest in many forms. The good thing about it is that you don’t need to be popular to find your life’s passion and make your presence felt.
Take for example Bio Hannya, an unassuming lad from Japan who has become somewhat of a staple or meme in the electronic music scene particularly in Glitch Hop, IDM, Electro, Neurofunk, Crossbreed, Breakcore, Dubstep, Chiptune, DnB etc. through passion alone and nothing else. I mean he comments on everyone’s music! If that’s not passionate enough for you, I don’t know what is. It’s almost impossible if you think about it, but he does it anyway, and does so in incredibly passionate fashion.
So who really is Bio Hannya? Well, his identity is shrouded in mystery as nothing much is really written about him but his imprint in the electronic community can be seen and felt everywhere. He’s like an omnipresent commenter who never sleeps! If you go by his ‘About’ section in his Facebook page, it says: “Kinda DJ, promoter, underground muzic geek, digger and whatnot.”
Well that kinda sums up what he does but the above description can’t even begin to illustrate the effect and influence that he has in the electronic music community. He’s a cool dude is all I’m saying and a very driven and passionate one at that.
If you ever bump into him in any music-related blogs one of these days, the least you can do is hit the like button or give him a thumb up. He deserves it and then some as he’s a living proof that with passion, everything is possible.
