"Forbidden Light" is dedicated to all those moments late at night, when we decide to get out of bed, and irresistibly, dive into a book, do some sketches, or in my case, turn on the sampler and work on beats...

Back in the days when i was still in college (circa 2003), i had just purchased my MPC and was spending all my spare time on it.
I was completely hypnotized by the sampler, spending tons of nights on it, building tracks, trying some things...

This is what i call a "Forbidden Light".
A strange light in the night... when everyone is supposed to sleep.
The LCD screen light of my sampler guiding me through the darkness, and revealing the unknown.
