In the mood for a beat instrumental next on this playlist, I decided to add this laid back track by young Chicago-based producer Harris Cole. I came across Harris Cole's music on a playlist of beats on Spotify. This track is off of his late 2016 release, "Pause."
I was drawn by the dreamy vibes, and by the samples from one of my favorite movies, "Waking Life," which is a philosophical journey that shows the blurred lines between wakefulness and dreams. The song starts with a sample of children playing the origami fortune teller game, picking one number at a time and folding the paper until they land on "dream is destiny." Cole's beats definitely straddle the line between reality and dreams.
