Intent on making you move all summer long, Futureboogie Recordings deliver more party jams from the Bristol underground. For ‘The Force’ EP, fresh recruit Christophe enters the retro realms of acid disco, enlisting the remixing prowess of Julio Bashmore, Lukas and PBR Streetgang.
After setting souls on fire with their maiden release from Julio Bashmore feat. Javeon McCarthy ‘Father Father’, the Futureboogie brigade is back and clearly swimming in a sea of homegrown talent. Fellow Bristolian producer Christophe takes centre stage and drops disco bomb ‘The Force’ - a dose of acid from the attic with kinetic percussion and a retro wiggly b line that could transport you back to 80’s NYC.
Julio Bashmore takes ‘The Force’ down the classic house route with his warm and uplifting Piano Mix, nailing the vintage groove with a winning combination of heartfelt simplicity and danceability. Lukas gets dubby in his remix, incorporating plenty of claps and a playful adaption of rhythms while PBR Streetgang pack a punch with infectious beats and extra-oscillating electro synth lines.
Life before Futureboogie has seen Christophe as a fixture on the Bristol scene in the guises of DJ, producer and graphic designer lending his artistic touches to projects for Is It Balearic, Black Acre Records, Bad Acid, NRK, DJ History as well as the Futureboogie label. His debut track ‘Make A Mark’ embraced the melodic piano house sound of the 80’s and was released on Northern disco-savvy imprint Redux.
Julio Bashmore is one of the major success stories of the year winning over music heads from dubstep to house with his chameleon approach to production. Lukas is another burgeoning Bristol based producer, DJ and promoter running the Buoyancy and Alfresco Disco events. Also recording under monikers The Runners and Chew Magna, Lukas has previously released on Dirt Crew’s sublabel Player’s Paradise.
PBR Streetgang is the brainchild of Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe, one of the most dynamic duos to form through the infamous circus of Leeds nightlife. A string of acclaimed releases have been lighting up the back catalogues of 20:20 Vision, Wolf Music and Southern Fried Records and they have been invited to play the likes of Glastonbury and Garden festival over the past year.
