FOLD & Rupture present Forest Drive West

FOLD and Rupture collaborate to present a live DJ set from Forest Drive West.

Media shyness and mystery have become much-used tools in contemporary electronic music. While some artists continually flirt with the media to almost the point of obsession, others almost appear to hide from it, and Joe Baker AKA Forest Drive West certainly is a man that is not exactly plastered all over social media…

It turns out that Joe Baker is in fact a full-time school teacher based in East London. He began making music around the early ’00s where he was driven to make records for his DJing, which was little more than a hobby at the time. Taking inspiration from attending drum & bass nights in Brighton, he began attempting to replicate the sounds he had heard, which then helped to create the gifted producer and mystery man we now hear today.
