Futureboogie Recordings, purveyors of fine dance music since 2011, reaches its landmark 50t h release this April. An integral part of the Futureboogie DNA, Christophe has been the visual force and visionary since the label’s inception. Having designed the sleeves and artwork over the years, Christophe’s musical direction has also been a cornerstone of the imprints sonic persuasions, contributing three key releases to the catalogue to date as well as various remixes and edits.
‘50’ comprises four brand new tracks from Christophe, each one displaying an assured grasp of what makes a crowd move, having been an essential resident DJ at the Futureboogie events globally.
‘Dance Pants’ takes the futuristic highway through contagious acid basslines, frenetic drum machine patterns and spiraling pads, whilst imaginatively titled ‘Caravanaramabar’ keeps the energy levels raised with shimmering synths, beating drums and sun rising melodies.
On the flip, ‘Savanna’ mellows the pace somewhat, wrapping a delectable synth riff around a percussive heavy beat, dusted with choppy vocal hits and dreamy stabs. Closing the EP is ‘Key Largo’; wigged out bass and freestyle keys jostle over reverberating drums for a real hypnotizing finale on this milestone 50th release.
A wealth of house music royalty and bourgeoning talent has helped shape the Futureboogie sound and label brand. Julio Bashmore, Waifs & Strays, Eats Everything, Felix Dickinson, O utboxx, Ron Baseman, PBR Streetgang and Lauer are amongst the role call that have helped the label chalk up 50 releases, with label boss Dave Harvey already lining up the next slew of releases to help Futureboogie march towards another 50!
