FORG_Character_BLKThe character to the left of here is the image used to represent Forgone. It had growth over the years from the early stages back in 1997 where it was a guy in a straight jacket. Many people have drawn images for Forgone to describe the character. The name itself came from 1997 as well. In fact, it was in the days of a 2400 baud rate modem. Bulletin Board Systems and there was only one computer in the school that had access to what was called “the internet” and I had my own account. I would go play text based games online and all sorts of stuff.

I used to play this PC game called Stellar 7  which is where I got my first internet alias from… “Stellar” but the amount of times I had guys messaging me in games saying… “Hi, A/S/L?” was intense… so I changed it and thought… what would I call myself. Well… I came up with an acronym called FORGONE… FOR my mind is GONE.

The word Forgone connects me back to my fun loving, mischievous and always getting into trouble youth. Having been medicated for ADHD as a very young child. The imagery of the straight jacket fits perfectly… So I used the name Forgone to speak of the insanity and escaping from the norm that is known as society. This alias has since gone into my music with the love for House music, Tribal House, Tech House and well anything that sounds sexy.

And that is how “Forgone” was born!
