Curating what has been an impeccable run of silky smooth late night jams over the past few years; the Futureboogie agency-cum-label has done itself proud, quickly becoming one of the countries most vital outposts for all things smart and slinky in the deep house realm.
No strangers to the scene by any means, the duo of Dave Harvey and Steve Nickolls have been putting in the work for no less than a decade in their adopted hometown of Bristol, pioneering jazzed-out breakbeat-house stylings throughout the early 00’s, the likes of which birthed such Bristolian deep house deities as Julio Bashmore, back before anybody gave two shites who he was.
Fellow graduates of the Futureboogie institute are Waifs & Strays, two fellas with a certain fondness for a raw drum pattern and a fruity baseline. Having now equally spent a decade dedicated to the Bristolian house scene, recent years have found their efforts very well spent, with their debut track ‘3am’ rapidly snapped up for Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom imprint, featuring in DJ Mag’s essential releases and picking up props from major players all over the shop including Luciano, DJ T, Anja Schneider, dOP, Danny Tenaglia and even man like Laurent Garnier!
Having clearly never heard of ‘the difficult second record’ conundrum, ‘Yeah Yeah’ gathered yet more international support; following its debut at the Detroit Music Conference it obliterated dancefloors from Fabric to Watergate. With Heidi calling it ‘the dirtiest house track I have heard in a very long time’. Praise indeed!
