Kai Ming and Marion Mignot collaborate and release ‘Feed The Lion’. Feed the Lion is a mix with Future trap and Electro pop music. The part of the break is concentrated on the bassline groove and cadenced by a dry hip hop snare. The chorus changes drastically to let an 808 bass take place with supersaw synths, widely used in EDM music. The melody has a naive, happy feeling that can echo to innocence which contrasts with raw and cynic lyrics.
In an exclusive conversation with Siachen Studios, Kai Ming shares the Interesting story behind his new track ‘Feed The Lion’ –
Kai Ming – “I remember when we recorded this tune in early 2018. Marion was living quite far from Montréal and a friend told me I could borrow a U87 mic from his school. So Marion decided to come on the spur of the moment. She wrote the lyrics during her trip and I first thought she was truly motivated in making music.”
“When she explained to me what led her to write Feed the Lion, she told me that she had a lot of relationship problems with her roommate. The origin of the title of this song came from an expression the roommate used to say often. The expression means to throw everything that is bad for you to lions. According to Marion, her roommate had a lot of things to throw to his lion to go on through life, and he was unable to understand. They were good friends first but everything finally fell apart when both lost patience. Marion managed to turn an uncomfortable situation into a creative process and for this reason, I think she is an outstanding artist.”

“When we met she explained to me the concept of the lyrics and I was totally in love with her writing. It appeared the famous microphone was defective so we had to deal with what we had on hand. Thus we spent the day in the studio with my friends Marion Mignot and Antoine Seychal. That was a delightful moment and we had a really good laugh together.”
Feed The Lion Lyrics –
So, take them all theses barriers and give them to your lion, Stop staring at this barrel And shooting with this gun You’re turning yourself blind So you can hide from her You keep pulling the trigger You put before your eyes You are not alone, Stop living in your head You hurt yourself on your own Just take away the blade Stop running backward, you crazy coward Come on, one foot in front of the other In the right way, would be better I stayed to long For a vain cause I have been strong But fuck now I need a pause I wanna pray for your will And believe in your efforts Will you accept what’s real? Or will you stay in your comfort? Try to get outside Just have to find that door I would have take you for a ride But they are so many walls You are not alone, and Stop living in your head You hurt yourself on your own Just take away the blade Maybe could have done betterx4 You maintain you own vicious circle That makes you unhappy So, take them all theses barriers and give them to your lion, Stop staring at this barrel And shooting with this gun You’re turning yourself blind So you can hide from her You’re turning yourself blind So, take them all theses barriers and give them to your lion, Stop staring at this barrel And shooting with this gun You’re turning on these barriers And give them to your lion You keep pulling the trigger You put before your eyes Sorry I wasn’t that tough I hope you’ll be right later I finally had enough Now it doesn’t matter
