This Jason Forrest heavy mix was sparked by a sore thumb bar conversation with my friend Mo. She asked me what the future of music and art was... and I immediately said Jason Forrest and Takashi Miike. We waxed pretentiously about the oncoming fin de siecle being a movement of 'borrowing.' What better example than Miike's tributary b-movie quick cuts and genre slicing and Forrest's equally glitchy and quirky sampling of pop culture.

I included some other music to make it interesting for me. I firmly believe that Screw is the cousin of Dub... and that temporal changes, especially when paired with obvious songs, leads to magikal quantum understanding. In short... the media is our palette... and the way we twist and manipulate it is the impetus of modernism. Moog blips no longer sound modern. We live in the Jetsons. By shredding our culture through filters and effects, we reshape the past in the form of the future.
