The name for Too Future. came about last year when the well-respected DJ Shadow was kicked off the decks mid set at club Mansion in Miami. Promoters approached him in the booth and asked him to play the kind of music they thought the crowd wanted to hear and told him that his bass-driven selections were “too future”. DJ Shadow picks up the mic and addresses the crowd: “They say you all want that house music back on right?” The crowd immediately yells “NOOO!” as DJ Shadow turns back on the rattling bass and continues his show as planned. Crowd members can easily be heard screaming “FUCK MANSION!” and “FUCK THIS PLACE!” clearly showing their disdain for anyone wanting Shadow’s performance to end. Shadow was approached again, exchanges a few sentences, picks up the mic and says, “Miami I just want to say I respect you. Y’all created the bass. I’ve waited a long time to play here but they’re saying this shit is too future for all y’all…” and walks off stage. An OUTRAGED crowd continues its angry shouts “FUCK YOU! THIS IS NOT MY MIAMI!” as a less bass-heavy track is immediately put on to keep the party going. A move like this is incredibly insulting to a DJ of Shadow’s stature, and also to the members of the crowd who paid good money to see him at work. This created quite a ruckus in the EDM world and many people shared a laugh over the video a smart fan was lucky enough to catch:
Since it’s inception last February 17th 2014, Too Future. has become a well-respected collective and voice of the future bass genre. Working hand in hand with electronic music producers in the Moving Castle collective, they are perpetuating a sound and type of music that is in a league of it’s own. Curating their own playlists to spread the latest and greatest music made in the genre, they have given audiences a reason to be excited about Too Future Thursdays and the week’s hottest tracks. Their Guest Mix series has also seen 24 great artists come through to try their hand at the too future and all forward-thinking sounds for their audience.
Moving Castle is an artist collective trailblazing the path all future bass producers look to for inspiration. They are propagating a sound that is sweeping the nation and catching everyone’s attention. In a recent article we outlined why the sound their artists are making is becoming the direction music is headed. It’s kind of like that jersey club sound, but with more of an LA influence coupled with a forward-thinking mentality that bass doesn’t have to always be wobbly and heavy to be the main driver behind a melody. Hints of beauty and picturesque interludes intwine themselves with trap 808s and high-hats while dreamy, futuristic synths and vocal distortions breathe a fresh life into our beloved electronic platform. Hints of all of your favorite genres can be found in their sound, but the spin they are putting on them is uniquely MVNGCSTL.
