Gilbere Forte’ ft. Freelance Whales - 1st Floor

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Aislyn (of Passion Pit)
Album:
87 Dreams Mixtape

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to put on your hip-rock goggles for this joint (don’t worry, it’s not the Creed/Fat Joe combo you’ve had nightmare’s about). Gilbere Forte’ is back in the Booth for his second feature (the first was My Time), this time accompanied by the oddly named band Freelance Whales for mixtape track 1st Floor. While the production may feel a little odd on the first listen, Aislyn (of indie rock’s Passion Pit) manages to blend with Forte’ and Whales to make a hauntingly smooth beat that will make listeners feel like they’re in the front row of a live concert. Lyricism isn’t lost among the cacophony of instrumentals, as Forte’ puts another talented foot forward with his uplifting messages: “Open up your eyes when you look in the sky, let my music be your wings when you’re ready to fly.” If you enjoyed keeping your lighters up for this one, be sure to check Gilberte Forte’s upcoming project, 87 Dreams Mixtape, due out in late June via DJBooth.
