Review: Anyone who has been to Oban on the North West coast of Scotland will confirm that it's a rather picturesque place. We shouldn't be surprised, then, by the intense beauty that courses through "Music Will Save The Day", the first Austin Ato release by experienced Oban-based producer Colin Bailey (he of Drums of Death fame). Skillfully combining chiming bells, meandering synthesizer lines, crunchy drums and sparkling piano riffs, "Music Will Save The Day", which is available in both Dub and Vocal variants, is something of a summery treat. It's backed by two terrific remixes: a kind of Reichian minimalism meets new age version by Auntie Flo, and a thrilling peak-time take from label regular Christophe, who joins the dots between jacking acid and hands-aloft piano house.

Review: Julio Bashmore closes proceedings on a breakthrough year with the release of the smartly titled Riff Wrath on his own Futureboogie imprint. Back in the misty eyed days of early January we plucked out young Bashmore as one of ten producers that we predicted would do great things this year, and the West Country dweller has more than delivered on this promise. Everyone Needs A Theme Tune, his EP for the fledgling PMR imprint has remained one of this year's most enduring releases and was recently endowed with a much overdue repress by the label. Subsequent EPs for Martyn's 3024 label and the newly established Futureboogie have also left an impression, whilst Bashmore has honed his remixing skills for an array of labels, turning up on heavy hitters such as Turbo and Sound Pellegrino. The sixth release on Futureboogie contains a double dose of deftly described filmic house music which pairs the vocal lead track "Ensnare" with some instrumental business in the shape of "Well Wishers", and we thoroughly recommend you check it out.

Review: Having recently impressed with a delightful Faith Evans bootleg, mysterious Bristol-based combo Behling & Simpson (a new pseudonym for a well-known production duo) make their full debut on hometown imprint Futureboogie. It's arguably Futureboogie's best yet, a delicious four-tracker of slow house and bumpin' midtempo grooves that simply bleeds Bristol. Of the four cuts, it's the low, slow grooves and cut-up R&B vocals of "UFO" that most impresses (inspired, incidentally, by the Bristol club night of the same name), though the dubwise "Yenisei" and dreamy "Left Behind" are almost as good.

Review: Futureboogie's annual Summer Riot EP rarely disappoints. This year's instalment of the multi-artist extravaganza - the fifth in totak - is every bit as essential as its' predecessors. Long time friend of the family Bonar Bradberry steps up first with "Analogue Express", where bubbly synthesizer lead lines rub shoulders with Chicken Lips style bass and rich, life-affirming piano chords. Experienced Italian DJ Rocca fuses brain-melting acid lines, dark electronics and African influences on the wonky "Voodoo", before former Fila Brazillia man Steve Cobby drops a lolloping chunk of audible sunshine in the shape of "Lefthanded Books". Arguably best of all, though, is Field Theory's "Rituals", a swirling fusion of dreamy deep house, mind-altering acid, and warehouse-friendly rhythms.

Review: It's been almost a year since the last Futureboogie release, and it was about time the Bristol label landed a new artist on their roster; after all, they're only responsible for bringing out talent such as Julio Bashmore! Although Cassio Kohl surfaced a couple of years ago, he's been quiet on the releasing front, but he's back with three hot 'n' bumpy floor nuggets coated in a house flavour. "Let It Be Me" has a Chicago lick with a bouncy bassline and plenty of sweet atmospherics, while "Hear Me" is funkier with that fuzzy slap bass, and "Come Together" goes for the swing thanks to those skippy percussion stabs and rolling bass shots. Seductive and effective, perfect for the warm up hours.

Review: Given that he's been involved in shaping the artistic direction of the label from the very start, it seems fitting that graphic designer-turned-producer Christophe should have the honour of delivering Futureboogie's 50th release. There's an argument to say that it's his strongest release to date, too; certainly, the fizzing, saucer-eyed Acid-jack of "Dance Pants" and throbbing, low-slung, late night disco-acid of "Caravanaramabar" come straight from the top drawer. The Bristol-based Welshman showcases his love of dreamy, fluttering slow jams via the drawn-out Balearic climax of "Savanna", before tipping a wink to the twin attractions of acid-flecked Italian dream house and stripped-back electrofunk on high-grade closer "Key Largo".

Christophe - "Comeback" (instrumental) - (6:31) 115 BPM
from $2.02
Review: Bristol's premier bastion of boogie inflected house music continues unabated with this release from central label figure Christophe. Bringing in the vocals of Danielle Moore, "Comeback" is a refreshing departure from the sample ripping techniques most use and in the process of originality brings a curious Detroit romanticism into the 80s electro funk context. Casino Times switch up into a more straight-up deep house groove that chugs away dutifully, while Christophe brings his regular cohort Lukas on board for a 'mastermix' that further builds on the Detroit tones with a serious Inner City flavoured version. The instrumental of the original rounds the package off nicely with a greater focus on those dirty funk elements of yesteryear that never grow old.

Review: Futureboogie's annual multi-artist EP has become as big a part of our summer as tedious festival queues, soggy outdoor parties and complaining about the British weather. Label stalwart Christophe kicks off this sixth edition via the clattering machine drums, glistening Balearic flourishes and thrillingly psychedelic acid lines of "West Side Critters", before Zombies in Miami go all Eastern on the sitar-sporting house exotica of "The Legends of the Hidden Temple". There's more of a sun-warmed Balearic feel to the shuffling beats, tumbling chords and jangling pianos of Forriner's tasty "Spero", while Yuki Tosaya steals the show with "Acid Dawn Breaks", which is the kind of saucer-eyed, sunrise thriller that was all the range back at the turn of the '90s.

Review: Following a killer EP of more downtempo leaning grooves on Astro:Dynamics earlier this year, Bristol's Crackazat returns on Futureboogie with some material aimed squarely at the floor. "Book On The Beach" combines caffeinated congas with a laid back Chi town groove, while "Panic Aggressive" is a more low slung affair combining a sleazy guitar lick with lo-fi keys. However, the real star is the nine minute epic that is "Tunnel". Raw and chunky with an impeccable sense of rhythm, and combining deep atmospherics with madly tweaking synths, this is possibly the most original house track we've heard this year. Highly recommended.

Review: With an intrinsic link to the Futureboogie crew in the live arena, long-serving UK house crew Crazy P bring their broad sound to the label with gusto, maximising on the skills the component member possess. Most apparent of these is Danielle Moore with her arresting croon shining through the most on "Clouds", and also popping up in snippet form on "Burning". There is a spread of different moods at work across the tracks from seedy electro tones on the first track to the sizzling disco flavour of "Virtuality", leaving plenty of room for Outboxx to lay down a blissful slice of keys-rich deep house in their inimitable style.

Review: NYC-based Bristol exile Milo Johnson AKA DJ Nature has long enjoyed a good relationship with Futureboogie Recordings, having first provided remix services for the West Country label back in 2013. This, though, is still his first EP for Dave Harvey's imprint. His loose, groovy and jazz-flecked style of deep house naturally comes to the fore on warm and melodious opener "Born Lifted", while the slightly more driving, sample-heavy "My Life" recalls his early '90s work as Nature Boy. "What Isn't" is a dusty deep house producer's take on electro-tinged instrumental hip-hop (reflective of his '80s work as part of Massive Attack's Wild Bunch collective) while "Loving You More" cannily joins the dots between lo-fi deep house, Balearic dreaminess and classic jazz-funk.

Review: Australian oddball producer Dreems breaks away from his usual home; Thomas Von Party's Multi Culti imprint, for an appearance on Bristol institution Futureboogie with the Studio Glucose EP, where he collaborates with buddy Jamie Blanco from London. On "Percussive Racing Cars" the pair reference classic Chicago deep house, complete with Juno 106 and 303 basslines but with a modern twist. "Party Mix" goes for some woozy, groovy, tribal tech house geared for the late night or afterhours while "Red Frog, Green Frog" goes for a strange 80s/balearic tinged groove that many other Australian producers in Berlin are doing at present. There's also a brilliant remix of "Percussive Racing Cars" by Israeli man of the moment Moscoman, giving it a dusty and rusty acid house makeover.

Review: Eats Everything arrives on Futureboogie Recordings and, clearly, it's all going off. "Tone Music" is a slice of majestically wasted raw house that centres around a beguiling sci-fi synth riff, plinky plonk noises and the tormented warbles of a mad man. Oh, and a snare, a ridiculously massive snare. "Lo-Fi" is loose, dirty, garagey house that has a really urgent sense of spacey sleaze. Lastly "Doldrums" ends things on high with huge build-ups and, infectious rubbery bassline, skippy beats and a relentless cheap keyboard riff. In other words, pretty much perfect dancefloor material.

Review: It's some 13 years since Fernando Pulichino made his debut as part of rubbery, dub-disco/deep house fusionists Silver City, and seven since his first solo outing on Redux. Here, he pops up on Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings with more pleasingly dubbed-out disco chuggers and sparkling nu-disco workouts. "Ride On" is classic Fernando, with the Argentine producer expertly combining a trademark punk funk bassline with spiraling synths, fluttering electronics and rolling beats. His electrofunk, Itallo-disco and Balearic influence shines through stronger on the trippy and dubby "Trespassing", while "Mid Decade" is a kind of bubbling, sun-kissed analogue nu-disco jam. There's also a neat bonus in the shape of DJ Nature's rework of "Ride On", which turns Pulichino's original into a woozy, guitar-laden deep house gem.

Review: After delivering an impressive contribution to Futureboogie Recordings' recent Summer Riot IV release, Phil Gerus has been given the chance to showcase his wares with an EP all of his own. He impresses from the off, effortlessly fusing classic house vocal samples, rubbery boogie bass and spacey synth flourishes on the superb "One More Button Down". Gerus then doffs a cap to 80s electro and space-funk on the wobbly "Better Sing It To Me First", before charging off on a sparse electrofunk-meets-rolling house tip on the brilliantly flexible "She Rides Shotgun". He argiuably saves the best till last, though, with the Chicken Lips-meets-Serious Intetion style proto house-meets-electro business of "Now Is Gone".

from $2.02
Review: Newly-transplanted-to-Bristol producer Hackman makes good on his allegiance to the city he now calls home with this offering to one of the West Country's most fervent outposts of plush, disco-inflected house music. Lead track "Change My Life" fits neatly into the label aesthetic with its neon daubs of synth and soulful vocal croon over a firm but gentle groove, given extra bite by some rugged rhythmic chops to balance out the sugary melodic blasts. "Lost From Me" takes a more mysterious direction with its spooky snippets of vocal and slippery sampling until the curtain drops on a bombastic chord progression, making for an emotionally powerful romp. "We Make Delicious" is by way of contrast a slow-burner that prefers a stripped-back drum template and plaintive dashes of melody over heavy brushstrokes.

Review: Chameleonic producer Jabru and label hopping bass producer Hackman come together to form the snappily named Bruh Jackman with this platter for Bristol's Futureboogie imprint. The duo is clearly mindful of Julio Bashmore's success since his Futureboogie releases a while back as this three track EP contains a healthy dose of soulful vibes. Lead track "Miss My Love" is a dusty little number with snapping percussion augmented by lush chiming melodies but dominated by that uplifting vocal. The brilliantly titled Joel Culpepper lends some real soul to "California", a glistening, laid back ride through seductive neo-R&B that justifies the vocalist's comparison's to Frank Ocean whilst "Just To Keep" can be filed alongside the current crop of vocal hook heavy, melodic deep house.

The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: This EP from Last Waltz is a big step forward for Futureboogie Recordings. Previously, they've released plenty of high quality dancefloor fare, but little that really tugs at the heartstrings musically. "Trinket", in particular, is very impressive in this regard, taking the label's "cocaine house" blueprint and wrapping it up in the most heartaching of piano lines and fragile, crystalline melodies. It really is excellent. The slower "Ashes" also ticks all the right boxes, sounding like a smacked-out fusion of sleepy deep house and intergalactic electronic disco. For those in need of more obviously upbeat fare, the Bad Passion remix of "Trinket" delivers carnival drums and MDMA builds as well as those pianos.

Review: Given Futureboogie boss Dave Harvey's notable links to Adriatic festivals (he was previously the musical programmer of Garden, before launching his own Love International shindig at the same site), it's perhaps unsurprising that the label's releases should have a touch of Croatian sunshine about them. This latest EP from Tuff City Kids man Lauer is an excellent example. Both tracks bristle with woozy, sun-kissed positivity, with virtual flipside "Kilian" - all eyes-closed synthesizer melodies, chugging arpeggios and humid beats - sounding like it was tailor-made for sweaty boat parties and tipsy sunrise sessions. "Birsk" is similarly inclined, albeit with a quicker pulse and sounds which drag it further towards shimmering Balearic house territory.

Review: Getting his name out there following a single on Winding Road Records in 2013, Lonely Boy is making his intentions clear on this single for Futureboogie. The LA-based producer has a strong handle on the kind of sleazy, four-to-the-floor house music that the Bristolian label favours, and the title-track delivers on every level. "The Subtle Frenzy" has a powerful emotive streak at the core of its own fuzzy synth lines, while "Take Your Time" drifts into slower, more thoughtful territory to show there's more than one side to this boogie-loving beatsmith. The Emperor Machine, meanwhile, whips up a chunky electro-house version of "I Like Disco" that adds a little more meat for the more pumped-up dancefloors.

Review: It's been a while since Bristol's Luke Turner last released new material, with his most recent outing on Futureboogie (the Maison De Cheval project with fellow West Country dweller Christophe) appearing way back in 2011. Happily, Back To Boogie finds him in good form, delivering a series of vividly coloured house gems. There's the wide-eyed, bright-and-breezy piano house pomp of "Narwhals", the cowbell-laden late night science of electrofunk-meets-deep house jam "Bassoon" and the woozy sax, tumbling chords and booming bass of the sensual "Drunken Master" (complete with a vocal sample from a familiar favourite). If that wasn't enough, he also drops some pitched-down vocals, spooky melodies and sub-bothering rhythms on the intoxicating "Is It True?"

Dancefloor sweatiness is guaranteed from the start, via the undulating, Moroder-inspired bass guitar, spacey electronics, clipped guitars and dense disco percussion of "Luca Frangipan", and its' suitably trippy, more heavily electronic companion Dub. There's a breezier, looser feel to "Groovin' To La", which expertly teases out soulful vocal samples and soaring strings atop a bouncy Italo-disco/deep house/classic disco fusion groove. The accompanying Dub mix is, if anything, even stronger. Sadly, this digital version of the EP doesn't feature DJ Fett Burger & Jayda G's killer remix, so you'll have to buy the 12" to get that.

Review: Mark E has spent the last few years re-tracing his loopy edit roots with the E Versions project, while exploring Balearic pastures with brother-in-law Nat Woodcock as Project E. Those who've always enjoyed his more peak-time productions will love this new two-tracker for Futureboogie, as it sees him applying his love of loop jams to suit darker, sweatier dancefloors. "Basement Trax 1" sets the tone, looping vintage, Twilo-era organ motifs over a tactile but chugging, nine-minute groove. "Basement Trax 2" is a little more musically expansive, with dreamy chords and similarly ear-catching organ motifs slowly building over a punchy house rhythm and undulating synth bassline.

Review: Given their regular appearances at Futureboogie events, it's no surprise to find Bristol-based deep house duo Outboxx popping up on El Harvo and Joe 90's imprint. The Fade EP is perhaps not as drop-dead gorgeous as their sublime, self-titled debut LP on Idle Hands, but it's still packed with the sort of warm, undulating, floor-friendly grooves that should get any deep house lover's nether regions tingling. The sublime "Need You" - all gigantic pads, touchy-feely vocal cuts, liquid bass and sturdy beats - is probably the highlight, though the electrofunk-influenced, proto-meets-contemporary goodness of "Rikkis Groove" isn't far behind. Really, though, all four tracks are top notch. In fact, it's one of Futureboogie's strongest releases to date.

Review: The secret of Outboxx's success is undoubtedly the combination of Hodge's instinctive production - few have such an easy way with rhythm, build and release - and Matthew Lambert's effortless musicality. The latter's skills come to the fore on the brilliant title track, where luscious Rhodes, buzzing synthesizer lines and rubbery bass combine to make the deep house equivalent of killer jazz-funk. Almost even better is the fizzing, piano-laden goodtime jam "Gift of Life" - this time featuring regular vocalist Naomi Jeremy - while opener "Day One" has the feel of an eyes-closed, Adriatic anthem (it was, no doubt, created with The Garden Festival in mind). Best of all, though, is "Closing Titles", which glistens, throbs and, most crucially, entertains, from start to finish.

Review: From Leeds to London via Bristol; PBR Streetgang and X-Press 2 have collided to create two superb slabs of timeless late night house; "Cosine" is a prog-minded, star-gazing strutter that would have sounded impeccable if it were released at any stage in the last 20 years. "Key Free" is a more upbeat, tech-minded workout with jazzy intentions... The frenetic synth meanders underpinned by a really creepy, ominous synth bass tone that wouldn't have gone amiss on Garnier's F-Com back in the day. For remix pleasure, "Cosine" enjoys a psychedelic twist from Lauer and a crunchy, angular electro b-boy flip from Elastic Dreams man A Sagittariun. Powerful.

Review: Having previously appeared on similarly hyped house label Wolf Music, South African producer Terrence Pearce is an excellent addition to the Futureboogie roster. Here, he supplies the Bristol-based label with a quartet of decidedly positive tracks. There's something for everyone, from the rumbling low-end pulse and saucer-eyed rave riffage of "Kings N Queens" and sparkling, hip-hop sampling deepness of "Up and Down", to the rush-inducing, sax-laden powdered deep house of "Halcyon". "Poise", a blossoming exercise in the simple joys of melody, is also pretty tasty.

Review: Ron & Neil is an all-star collaboration between old buddies Jim "Ron Basejam" Baron (Crazy P), and Rack 'N' Ruin boss man Neil Diablo. Pedre Son Aclat marks the project's first appearance, with the three original tracks sitting somewhere between shimmering nu-disco, sparkling powder house, and disco-influenced grooves. The title track sets the tone, layering up colourful synthesizer chords and melodies. While tasty, Man Power's bubbly, Balearic style revision - all analogue synths, cheap drum machine hits and sleazy vocals - is arguably more satisfying. "You Feel It" is a creepy, low-slung deep house/disco hybrid blessed with killer percussive flourishes and a weighty punk funk bassline, while "Tears" is a glassy-eyed fusion of warehouse-friendly electronics and disco-funk hedonism.

Review: Crazy P man Jim Baron once more dons his Ron Basejam alter ego, delivering a strong virtual double A-side for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings. Opener "Time" not only features some decidedly cosmic spoken word vocals from Vern, but was also co-produced by PBR Streetgang man Bonar Bradberry. In typical Baron fashion, the track is a loose, warm and inviting affair that effortlessly blends live instrumentation (guitars, bass, Clavinet) with a rolling dancefloor groove. "The Carrington Spirituals" is an altogether more urgent affair, and sees the experienced producer offering a typically attractive, horn-heavy take on loopy disco-house.

There's also local Bristolian Lukas doing more of his low slung slo mo disco business and Phil Gerus with "Never Coming Back".

Review: Futureboogie's annual Summer Riot series is usually a reliable source of extra-spicy material that's sent dancefloors into raptures during the Bristol crew's numerous festival sets. This third instalment is no different. Perhaps the most startling including is "Red Road", an authentic chunk of disco-boogie (complete with Chic style guitars, rubbery bass and cheeky pianos) from Back to Basics resident Buckley. Really, it's superb - one of the best new straight-up disco tracks we've heard in a while. Elsewhere, local lads Outboxx drop a chunk of loved-up deep house, Waifs and Strays impress with the bubbly, powdery "Now Come", and newcomer Kemback goes all dreamy and delicious on the pleasingly wide-eyed "Mistake".
