YACHT - Utopia & Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)

Yacht is a musical moniker created by electronic musician and multimedia artist Jonathan Warren Bechtolt out of Portland, Oregon. His musical partner is Claire L. Evans. The featured film below was quite a production you'll notice when you read the credits listed below the video you are about to see. Yacht combined two separate songs, Utopia and the other song called Dystopia (The World is on Fire), combining them into one musical film experience. With the first song, the world is a blissful groove and with the second song, it's all coming unraveled as the earth is on fire. My mind was thinking about real world events and I daydreamed like mad. Lots of fun here. Had to watch it over again, a few times. It sounds great cranked up loud. Enjoy! Peace Love Groove, GC
