Once a year deep in the woods, far away from the hustle of city life. Rests my favorite getaway, a place where I can truly escape the everyday drudgery of my daily grind. As I drive down the long bumpy dirt road that leads to this neon oasis, every thought of looming bills and impending sales targets drift away with every turn.
I've had the honer of playing Future Forest since 2013 and every year they level up in every single aspect, not only the stages but to the music and live performances that are lucky enough to grace them.
This year they gave me a different set and at first it threw me off, typically I would play a "big room" peak hour ( give or take ) dance/mosh your face off kinda vibe. But this time around, due to the chillness of last season's Feels like Sunday, they had me on mid-afternoon at "The Nest" a stage found down a narrow wooded path past the main stage.
I took this opportunity to try something that was bouncing around my head over the last few months; to take my favourite Trip-Hop/Hip-Hop and Jungle Tracks of the 90's and early 2000's as well hunting down the original songs used in samples of some of those songs to piece together a mosaic of loops and samples using a combination of Abelton Live and Serato. Below is the end result!
