Since its inception last February 17th 2014, Too Future. has become a well-respected collective and voice of all forward-thinking sounds and artists. They are known for discovering and perpetuating a sound I can only describe now as “too future”. A mix of future bass, future house, and beats that I don’t even know if they have a widely-used classification yet fill up their playlists that are enjoyed by many.
The 47th edition of Too Future. Thursdays is chock full of the freshest forward-thinking beats that could be found on the internet this week. For this mix they kick things off with Daktyl’s stellar remix of Alison Wonderland followed up by Giraffage‘s amazing remix of Tinashe’s “All Hands On Deck”. Jeftuz’s sexy remix of Kat Dahlia should also not be skipped over. More future bass comes from KRNE, Lido, Figgy, SevnthWonder, TastyTreat and more.
House jams from Chris Lake, Matroda, MOUNT and Nicolas Haelg as well as some great beats from Pools, Oshi, Alexander Lewis and Edamame. Bringing up the tail end is the Too Future. curated brand new mind-blowing mix from Hotel Garuda and an hour long mix from MVNGCSTL artist Vices.
They have put all of this amazing music into one easy-listening playlist. If you are digging their vibe, do them a favor and hit that SoundCloud [↻] repost button and share these lively, upbeat, perfect-for-summer tunes with your friends.
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:
