Electric Forest Curated Event Playlist: Bassrush
As expected the most anticipated curated event, at least in the Facebook Electric Forest group threads, is the Bassrush Event that will be taking place from 1:30 pm to 3:15am on Frday at the Tripolee stage.
The lineup for this event includes Flux Pavilion, Carnage, Datsik, Snail, Crizzly, Ed Rush & Optical, Minnesota, Koan Sound, Mt. Eden, Son of Kick, Illium, and Vaski.
This playlist kicks it off with Flux Pavilion and his new track with notorious hip hop performer Riff Raff from EDC New York. It’s what you would expect, riddled with references to substances over a hifey dance track that shuffles over a heavy bass line. To be blunt, it’s the shit.
That is followed by Carnage who just throws down filthy house in his track called “Toca.” That’s all there is to say about that.
Continuing the filth is a track from Datsik and his newest collaborative efforts on the album Shelshock Legends compilation. P.S. if you want him to get medieval on your ass listen to Troynado, it retains all of that classic Datsik.
Keep in mind this playlist gives back. Free downloads are available for Ed Rush & Optical, Mt. Eden, and Illenium.
And if you really want to get into the Forest’s euphoric mindset we recommend “Sentient” by Koan Sound, Minnesota’s “Gold” featuring Yuna, and Mt. Eden’s track “Now” featuring Blackmill.
Don’t forget you can still become involved if you don’t have tickets, or if you do, there are some extracurricular activities in the Plug In Program that might spark interest
