Based on the personal experience of starting at the bottom selling fake perfume out of the trunk of his car, 'CaliFuture' foretells the sunny-sided ironies experienced by the legions of fame and heat-seekers who head out to the Golden State each year in the pursuit of ‘The Dream’.
The barbed Bootsy-style falsetto narrative comes from VonStroke’s close friend Barry Drift – who you may recognize from Urban Animal’s ‘Sugar & Cinnamon’ – and his sermon is complemented by an obese acid groove that thunders unrelentingly beneath. Fluctuating analogue funk, it taps into the deepest tech DNA with a lava-like flow. Instantly infectious (like all the best acid tracks) the groove carries so much weight we’ve included a dub version, too.
A finer insight into the dark and devious mind of the dirtybird boss-man you will not find. The question is: did his hard pre-fame Cali slog create this twisted mindset… Or was it already in place before he got there?
