Dylan Ferguson has two ski lives. In one, he skis with his friends 4bi9 Media at Park City Mountain Resort, styling it out for their annual film. In another, he's representing the United States of America as a world-class aerialist. Though appendicitis kept him out of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, Ferguson is virtually a lock for the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia. For today, he shares his playlist (and a recently dropped edit) with MtnAdvisor.com.
Top Five Songs I'm Listening To At The Moment:
1. "Excuses" by the Morning Benders
2. "Breezeblocks" by Alt-J
3. "Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Ray
4. "Love Hate Thing" by Wale ft. Sam Dew
5. "Born Sinner" by J-Cole
The song that reminds me of skiing the most is "Electric Feel" By MGMT, because it puts me in such a great mood, and while skiing I am always in a great mood.
You might be surprised to learn that I have Miley Cyrus in my music library.
If I'm getting in the car to drive to Park City Mountain Resort to ski, I like to listen to feel-good music. "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb is a great example of that kind of music.
If music rights weren't an issue, I'd use " Da Rockwilder" by Method Man and Redman for a ski movie segment.
I live in Park City, Utah, and a local music act I've been listening to is…well, Deer Valley puts on a concert for locals on Wednesday evening in the summer time and they usually have some good music, but my favorite has got to be the Mayor of Park City's band called The Motherlode Canyon Band. They put on a fun show and nothing cooler than seeing the mayor of your town just being the absolute MAN!
If I could only listen to one album the rest of my life, I'd listen to the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby, because it has some fun music and it makes me feel like I am living in the ’20s and ’30s and I wish I was alive back then.
