- Forbidden Harvest


This mix contains a deep and scintillating blend of house, techno, and trance music performed live on the Dadu Plateau in Taichung for the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2016. Dadu Plateau guards the approach to much of central Taiwan and is home to many abandoned Japanese and KMT military installations, hence the name.
