Warning - long #burningman2018 post incoming... 4 years ago I was studying abroad, traveling to new places and listening to @flumemusic and other fresh electronic music on repeat. I had only dreamed of making music so inspirational as his back then. 3 years ago, I moved to Chicago and simultaneously started hobby and music production journey with Ableton. Music & travel had so beautifully coexisted in my life that I took on the alias Taroko, after a native national park in Taiwan.
I secured a Burning Man ticket a month ago, and little did I know, Harley would be making an appearance at his first Burning Man as well. I got to witness his B2B with @diplo and dance out some feels with @killy555 but most importantly got to thank Harley for his contribution to music history and inspiring me to start making music. I teared up a lil.
Harley, thanks for making my first burn special and for changing my life. Take as much time as you need to release new music, we'll all be waiting patiently since it's all about the process. Hope to see you again sometime, maybe it'll be on the playa next year. Who knows!?? Much love - Aaron/Taroko
TLDR: I met Flume and thanked him for changing my life and music forever 😁
