Future Utopia

Django's High

    Future Utopia is the brainchild of Grammy and Ivor Novello-Award winning artist, producer and songwriter, Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Dave, Stormzy).

    ‘Django’s High’, Fraser’s second album as Future Utopia, follows the release of his ‘We Were We Still Are’ EP, featuring Biig Piig, Kae Tempest and TOMI, and ‘12 Questions’, his first album as Future Utopia, featuring the likes of Dave, Stormzy and Kano, to name but a few. Unlike these previous projects and collaborations, ‘Django’s High’ sees Fraser take to lead vocals - layered and distorted over 70s-style progressive synths - transporting the listener to a psychedelic Utopia.

    Django Django

    Off Planet

      Entitled Off Planet, the 5th studio album from Django Django is a 21 track album splitted into four parts. Originally destined to be four experimental EPs but immediately transformed into a proper album when they started the recording session, Off Planet features some of the most exciting and dynamic music Django Django have ever produced. Harking back to their more experimental and electronic roots, the album also features guest such as Self Esteem, Jack Penate and others. 


      Liam says: Django Django are back with an absolute banger of a project! Originally planned as 4 EPs, 'Off Planet' eventually merged into this 21 track cosmic odyssey. With features from the likes of Self Esteem and Stealing Sheep, Django Django delve into hypnotic disco, interplanetary acid house and psych-rock slop - mega, mega stuff!

        Pictish Trail

        Natural Successor - Inc Django Django Mix

          A purgative surrender to nature’s whim driven by a clattering machine drumbeat and rolled in a puddle of filthy dirty fuzz, ‘Natural Successor’ is the riotous new single from isle of Eigg based Scottish psychedelic electronic-pop ogre Johnny Lynch AKA Pictish Trail.

          Set for release on limited-edition 12” vinyl by Fire Records, with support from Johnny’s own label Lost Map Records, it’s the first taste of a set of brand-new Pictish recordings produced by longterm collaborater Rob Jones (The Voluntary Butler Scheme, The Gene Dudley Group).

          The 12” single features exclusive remixes by Django Django and Makeness


          Matt says: Always nice to hear from the driving force that is Johnny Lynch. "Natural Successor" is soaring psychedlic rock with stadium potential. Django Django jump on board with a baggy, ALFOS-friendly tweak too. Then Makeness twist things up with a frenzied jungle refix.

          Django Django

          Glowing In The Dark

            Over the course of their extraordinarily accomplished discography to date, Django Django have constantly headed left where others have gone right. Described by The Guardian as “capable of making music that sounds close to perfection”, they are known for their genre defying eclectic sound and their new album “Glowing in the Dark” heralds, once again, the beginning of a thrilling new era for the band.

            Glowing in the Dark has a running theme of escape: from despair, from constraints, from small town life, and even, in dreams, from the Earth. The brilliant title track and new single, for instance, soars gloriously towards the stratosphere. A track built around a sample from one of Dave Maclean’s spoken word records then plushly upholstered with Moog synths and drum loops, it is accompanied by some eye strobing visuals from rapidly ascending NYC artist and illustrator Braulio Amado.

            STAFF COMMENTS

            Barry says: Django Django (So good they named th.. No - Ed.) hit us with their newest album since 2018, and while the songwriting is pure DD, their increased reliance on woozy synths and bombastic basslines lend a more shimmering, poppy edge.

            Django Django

            Marble Skies

              After the brilliant, rave-shaped grooves and expansive arrangements of its predecessor, ‘Marble Skies’ is a more concise and focused offering which recalls the dynamic, genre-blurring music of their debut. It’s a return to form; an album which finds them returning to the handmade, cut-and-paste approach of the past. Upon finishing the ‘Born To Saturn’ tour, Dave ventured to LA to work on a production project, whilst the other band members went to India with the British Council. When they returned, the new album process began with a back-to-basics approach which recalled the DIY ethos of the band’s early days, Django Django – minus an absent Maclean – assembled at Urchin Studios in Tottenham, London with Metronomy drummer Anna Prior to experiment with the idea of coming up with new tracks through loose jamming sessions. After ten days of recording, there was plenty of raw material to send up to Dave (then back in his hometown of Dundee) for him to edit, refine and evolve. As ever, all four band members (completed by Tommy Grace on synths and bassist Jimmy Dixon) contributed to the band’s music, melodies and lyrics as the final album took shape. Parts of ‘Marble Skies’ find Django Django sailing into uncharted territories, not least the driving title track (propelled by Prior’s drumming), with its echoes of Krautrock and Suicide. Meanwhile, the hazy Zombies-like summer pop of ‘Champagne’, which explores the joys and ills of alcohol, was inspired by the band’s over-indulgence during a boat trip on the Seine that was hosted by their label. Those drawn to the more dance-orientated side of Django Django will find much to love in the twisted ‘80s electro pop of ‘In Your Beat’ and the dancehall-influenced ‘Surface To Air’, a dreamy-headed pop song fronted by Rebecca Taylor of Slow Club. The collaboration came as a result of the two bands meeting up at SXSW some years ago, where Rebecca and Dave in particular bonded over shared interests in R&B, hip-hop and dancehall. Another more surprising collaborator is Jan Hammer, the Czech-born, American-based jazz-fusion and electronic artist who shares writing credits with the band on the gorgeously floaty ‘Sundials’. If there’s a mood running through ‘Marble Skies’, it’s one of reflection on things past and present, and finding some kind of peace with your place in the grand scheme of things.
