Review: A round of applause for Dave Harvey's Futureboogie label, which is closing its doors after a decade in which it's releases got stronger and more varied year on year. This superb compilation acts as the imprint's final testament, offering no less than 20 previously unheard nuggets from the Bristol-based imprint's nearest and dearest. Given the wealth of high-grade material on show, singling out highlights is tough, but our current favourites include the echoing,'80s alternative pop-meets-proto house dubbiness of Tech Support's 'Writers Block', the alien synths, glassy-eyed stabs and bustling electro drums of Warehouse Preservation Society's 'Ron's House', the kaleidoscopic house psychedelia of Manami's 'Nacros.Is', the bleeping, drug-fuelled oddness of Chez De Milo's 'Need Someone' and the breakbeat-acid insanity of Hard Ton's 'Don't Believe The Hype'.

Review: Tranquil Elephantizer have been releasing music since the mid-90s, and the influence from this period is audible on the two versions of the title track. Peppered with acid pulses and ponderous vocals, both the 'Waning' and 'Waxing' takes recall the lazy, hazy days of the free party scene. "Sugarlump" is cut from similar cloth; while it is not known whether its title refers to the famed sound system from that period, the powerful low end and trippy synths transport the listener back to those more carefree days. In contrast, "Slow Brew" is slower and dreamier, the perfect antidote to these dance floor-focused, acid-soaked tracks.

Review: Brussels-born DC Salas has been in good form in 2021, with this outing on Dave Harvey's Futureboogie imprint following well-received EPs on Pets Recordings and Live From Robert Johnson. Salas sets his stall out on title track 'The Weight of Uncertainty', an echoing, faintly funky slab of proto-house/Italo-disco/acid house fusion full of sweaty drums, fuzzy bass and spacey synth sounds. French great I:Cube weighs in with a predictably impressive remix that takes the track even further into deep space via swirling chords, ambient house sonics and Kraftwerk-esque bleeps. Elsewhere on the EP, 'Gliding Future' sounds like a pitched-down Nitzer Ebb jam from 1988 and 'They Don't See It' joins the dots between new beat and early acid house.

Review: Bristol disco stalwarts Futureboogie bring us an EP from Hungary's Andras 'Gensi' Genser that features a brace of remixes from London lad Decius. The original of 'Primavera 707' is a dreamy 'nu-disco meets melodic/organic house' affair that's served up with or without a female vocal in an unidentified language - Portuguese, maybe? Decius's remix takes the track down a more Afro-inspired route with busy, shuffling percussion and a male vocal, though again a Dub is also available. Elsewhere, 'Humble Brush' is an energetic nu-disco instrumental, while 'The Great Body Buzz' is the finest cosmic-acid meltdown you'll hear all week.

Dont Mess My Head (Dave Aju remix) - (6:22) 117 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Curiously, Warehouse Preservation Society's slim discography contains numerous acclaimed remixes for labels such as Rogue Cat Sounds and Wicked, but only one original production - a contribution to a multi-artist EP on Love on the Rocks. 'Endlessly', then, is their debut single - and very good it is too. In its original form, the track is druggy, trippy and seeped in old school nostalgia, with tactile synthesizer motifs and stabbing electronic motifs rising above a psychedelic, acid-style bassline and metronomic drums. 'Dublessly' is even sleazier and darker in tone, offering a superb, warehouse-ready alternative. 'Don't Mess My Head' is more percussive but no less dirty, doffing a cap to both proto-house and NYC freestyle, while Dave Aju's electro-influenced remix is even more sweaty, bass-heavy and drum-laden.

Review: Pre-pandemic, James Dyer was a rising star on the Bristol club scene, with a trademark sound that tended towards the cosmic, chugging and otherworldly. Here he makes his production bow as Chez de Milo on local label Futureboogie, beginning brilliantly with the throbbing, paranoid and wide-eyed 'Bushwa', where intense, undulating acid lines, bleeping melodies and seriously spooky pads bubble away atop a thrusting, bass-heavy groove. His love of bleeps and ambient techno era electronics is further explored on 'Mantella' and the more dubbed-out, sub-heavy trip that is 'Golden Ratio'. Also worth a listen is the Smagghe & Cross version of 'Bushwa', which features two long dark and driving sections of trippy dancefloor pleasure divided by a brilliantly bizarre ambient breakdown.

Deo Mort - (4:57) 119 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Surprisingly, this Futureboogie label debut is Toby Tobias's first single since 2018. He's clearly been in fine form in the studio, though, because it contains some real gems. Title track "Trippy Steve" is terrific - a heady, relentless late night/early morning house workout full of deep bass, weird noises, spaced-out chords, dubbed-out synthesizer motifs and whispered vocal snippets. Fantastic Man remixes, beefing up the beats and adding some aggressive, acid-syle sleaziness. Elsewhere, "Cosmic Slang" sits alone somewhere between space disco, electro and broken beat (it's a place other producers should visit more often) while "Deo Mort" is the kind of mind-altering Afro-cosmic house workout you'd expect to hear at a remote outdoor free party while off your box at 6am (assuming, of course, the DJs involved have good taste).

Review: Having previously impressed with 2012 releases on Wolf Music and Losing Suki, James Welsh continues his ascent towards deep house superstardom with a typically fluid and atmospheric EP for Futureboogie. "Craven" sets the tone, lacing a touchy-feely, tactile house groove with tough 808 cowbells and an intoxicating vocal sample. Regular collaborator Terri Walker makes an appearance on the shuffling, cymbal-heavy old skool garage jam "King Edward Street", while "Bill Murray Came To My House Party" largely lives up to its riotous title. "Horse Fight", with its minor key chords and sprightly synth bass, also hits the spot.

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.

Provincial Disturbance (Urulu's Liquid Squid mix) - (6:27) 130 BPM
Review: Futureboogie's recent move towards embracing the more cosmic, mind-altering and psychedelic side of the house and disco spectrum has resulted in a string of must-check EPs. Their latest missive, which comes courtesy of former Disco Halal contributor Kincaid, is another. For us, the undisputed highlight is "Voices From The Year 3000", a hallucinatory chunk of slow house hedonism propelled forwards by angular acid lines, acid-trip electronics and feverish analogue synthesizer motofs. The track that follows, "Entrance", is if anything even more trippy, with dark aural textures, sparse percussion hits and intergalactic acid motifs sashaying around a deep electro groove. Lead cut "Provincial Disturbance" is rather good, too - think snappy electro meets chugging dark disco - while Steve Urulu's remix of the same track is an insanely bass-heavy, bleep-inspired techno treat.

Review: Next up on Bristol's Futureboogie is Alex Warren aka Kiwi who has had previous releases on the likes of Optimo Music, Blase Boys Club and Sneaky Music in addition to promoting for well known London parties and clubs like Orlando Boom/Kate Boss and The Nest. 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: 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.

Appreciate It While It's Not Too Late (original mix) - (6:16) 102 BPM
Review: Alexander Pletnev aka Ponty Mython is originally from Russia, but is currently settled in Vilnius, Lithuania. His releases have popped up on top labels such as Dirt Crew, Nurvous and Quintessentials in recent times - and he can now add Bristolian tastemakers Futureboogie to that list. His sleek nu-disco style of groove as heard on "Pink Tango" is a neon-lit, lo-slung balearic groove for Summertime cocktail parties. Injecting more of an '80's flavour into it is Fabrizio Mammarella (one half of Black Spuma with Lauer) working his retroverted magic as always and jam packed full of vintage synth presents. From something different, Pletnev offers up the tropical vibe of "Appreciate It While It's Not Too Late" (original mix) and its mesmerising marimba action that makes you wish you had a hammock and Pina Colada in hand.

Review: Crazy P main man James Baron returns under his Ron Basejam alias, with more liquid nu-disco jams. Started as a casual side project 12 years ago, Baron wanted to 'capture the more diverse and quirky sides of his musical tastes', creating underground music that he incorporates with character, personality and humour. The After The Rain EP sees him return to Bristol institution Futureboogie, for the first time since 2016's "The Carrington Spirituals". Featuring the very soulful and near spiritual title track, the lo-slung funk attack of "The French Exit " and the late night acid express of "Raise" (featuring some vocals reminiscent of the legendary Daryl Pandy) among others - each one is a a sure shot and will light up the dancefloor.

Theus Mago & Thomass Jackson - "Sergio Ramos" - (6:52) 117 BPM
Review: Four cuts here from Mexico's Mateo Gonzalez - better known as Theus Mago - that will suit those who like their disco on the more electronic/leftfield/experimental side. Opener 'Apache Nights', for instance, owes far more to bleep techno and the early Warp sound than it does to the likes of (say) Chic or Earth Wind & Fire, while the accompanying Chicken Lips re-rub comes on like Kraftwerk jamming with Rennie Pilgrem. 'Piu Mosso' is a more straight-up homage to early 80s Euro/Italo disco and centres around an infectious, Arabic-sounding hook, while finally closer 'Sergio Ramos' could work in disco/Italo/EBM and progressive house sets alike.

Christophe - "Comeback" (instrumental) - (6:31) 115 BPM
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.

Panick Aggressive - (7:15) 106 BPM
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.

Played by: Thrills
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: 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.

Is It True? - (6:33) 120 BPM
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?"

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.

Kemback - "Mistake" - (8:46) 119 BPM
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".

Review: For all the polished productions they've released, Bristol's Futureboogie crew have always known where the party's at. This latest label release proves that they've not lost their sense of fun in a rush to represent the slicker side of Bristol's blossoming house scene. In its "Full Acid Vox Edit" form, Waifs and Strays' "I Saw Yo Girl" is a bit of a beast. Sat somewhere between pulsating acid revivalism and the UKG-influenced bounce promoted by the likes of Huxley and Julio Bashmore, it bristles with party-starting intent. The stripped-back "Dub Mix" is almost as large, getting just the right balance between hip-wigglin' bump and acid tweakery. Bluesy bonus cut "Remedy" is cut from the same cloth.

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: 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.

Closing Titles - (5:31) 123 BPM
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.

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

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".

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.

Birsk - (6:14) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Kilian - (6:09) 116 BPM
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.

California (instrumental) - (3:46) 123 BPM
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.

Doldrums - (7:03) 123 BPM
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: 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".

Review: Given the mystery surrounding this release - unnamed "well known London DJ/ producer" joins forces with (also uncredited) "star Bristol musician and vocalist" - it would be easy to let the music pass you by. Yet "It's You" is excellent - arguably one of the strongest Futureboogie releases to date. It eschews the label's usual styles in favour of a low-slung combination of sparse, Hot Creations-ish house rhythms, soul-aching vocals and Prince-ish 80s funk squelch. It's a great combination. Crazy P man Ron Basejam offers a deep and sunny house interpretation, whilst Bristolian housers Eats Everything and Christophe deliver a fluid fusion of disco percussion and bubblin', retro-futurist acid house.

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.
