Futureboogie Recordings Digital 001
Summer Riot EP
1. Coat Of Arms – Is This Something
2. Lukas – A Bigger Splash
3. Behling – Without You
Futureboogie Recordings is on a roll and with it comes the ‘Summer Riot EP’, a collection of lush, deep cuts of the house persuasion from three of the label’s hot discoveries, Coat Of Arms, Lukas and Behling.
Bristol has long been a hot bed of talent for alternative music but it is only recently that the city has begun to really plant itself on the house and disco map and this is in no small sense down to the house of Futureboogie and its brethren. Having earned their stripes in A&R through
running stages at major festivals like Glastonbury and Big Chill plus an agency of artists ranging from Crazy P to Maxxi Soundsystem that defy the South-West drizzle with their cosmic electronic wizardry, these guys have the fresh blood flocking to their infant label. Although, you get the
sense they all went to school together or at least share the same local.
First up on the ‘Summer Riot EP’ is Bristol/Birmingham duo Eats Everything and Chris James aka Coat Of Arms. The bumping, spacious house grooves of ‘This Is Something’, a warm blend of big
bass, Detroit-esqe synth stabs and deep, soulful vocals is a sexy dancefloor burner. A relatively new partnership, Coat Of Arms have had props from heavyweights Claude Von Stroke, Justin Martin and Catz n Dogz and have another forthcoming release on Pet Recordings.
Lukas is back from remixing duty for Christophe to display his production flair with ‘A Bigger Splash’. Where Coat Of Arms brought the heat, Lukas brings the breeze with swaying grooves and jazzy flourishes. Tender vocal snippets float amid soaring synths, melodic keys and a deep
funk bassline. A Bristol based DJ and promoter, Luke Turner aka Lukas is at the helm of the city’s Buoyancy and Alfresco Disco events and has previously released material on Dirtcrew’s sublabel Player’s Paradise.
Winding down this mood trio is Behling with the mellow sun-kissed, swinging grooves of ‘Without You’. Laid back disco leanings with hints of Latin funk, the tropical drums and irresistible brass section are enough to soothe the most melancholy soul. As one half of Bristol based house duo
Behling & Simpson, the young producer already has over 100 releases and 5 years of international DJing under his belt and with his solo work hecontinues to cruise the galaxy in slo- mo.
With Futureboogie, It’s the sense of community that lends itself to the growing consistency of their output. As diverse as this may be, the label is fast becoming synonymous with colourful, homegrown sonic sunshine.
