FUTURE TIMES

Garies come through for Future Times! After putting a killer on the FIGS Compilation last year (the excellent “Don Bongo”), Lumigraph and New Jackson team up and go wild for a four-song collection. Again channeling a few sounds at once, Garies go up and down with the tempo from the lazer-and-dirt-soaked opening rumbler “Emergency Tenner” thru the Dance-Mania-off-the-rails energy of the B2, “What A Room.” Get In.

Soso Tharpa is one of DC's best young producers and the A Side here, "Decode" has been the secret weapon in a ton of DJ mixes over the last year. A true 'wtf' acid beast, "Decode" bangs traditionally and levels the place. B Side "Sea Mojo" takes the sharp drums and filtered moves somewhere jumpy and PlayStation-tech'd, within a nice space electro bubble. Killer vibes - big T I P on this one.




STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Fresh sound but authentically driven. "Decode" is house music the way it should be - playful, catchy and drizzled in technology. "Sea Mojo" gives all the current nu-electro pretenders a run for their money as it delves confidently into the Drexciyan sub-aquatic lairs.

Motoko & Myers

Plover / Whimbrel

    Motoko & Myers is made up of Wonja & DJML, both of whom have blessed electronic music in numerous ways together and individually, via releases on Jacktone, DJing together for their Herzog Hideout radio transmissions, and their amazing album from 2018, "Basis Key".

    M+M make music from a really special place: wild tones, drum-machine-breaths and weird, pitched synth space combine with a sense of rhythm that folds in on itself, nodding to both kraut and Detroit techno blueprints; tipping their hat to Manuel Gottsching and Carl Craig but insisting on dressing in their own style. Gentle, electronic winds seem to guide their arrangements, rather than any linear human interaction. Rhythms come into focus over long distances, then dissipate over oceans of sound. It's certainly a beguiling and entrancing listen...


    Jeremy Hyman steps up to FT with the first of two 12" EPs that are a coordinated blast of colorful, galaxy-edge plastic techno from the master percussionist who moonlights in Lifted, Boredoms, Animal Collective, and more. Always rhythmatic in exciting ways, Hyman's drum programming here is more arms than buttons, injecting a fly human element in the 12". "Slide" does what it says with amazing technoid bass work and a propulsive sense of timing, "Madness" hovers and falls and hovers again, and "Tinted Mirror" is some sort of Foodman-meets-Prescription-Records house symphony, rising and rising and rising.

    "Boulderball" is a whole new, fully stretched world, inspired by everything from the Bomberman Hero OST and Cesar Camargo Mariano's "Prisma" LP, to 'going on youtube and playing tracks at 1.25 speed.' The LP is made of fizzing Brazilian fusion, video game music, virtuoso keyboard playing, funk, and the type of glorious, hook-driven pop energy known to fans of YMO, New Order, and Mario 64 alike. The first LP from Repetentes 2008 (aka Gabriel Guerra of Rio's 40% Foda/Maneiríssimo crew) and although worlds apart, sits brilliantly next to James Ferraro, Dream Catalogue, Art Of Noise, Krikor etc.

    'Future Times is very happy to announce that we're putting out Boulderball, the first LP from Repetentes 2008 (aka Gabriel Guerra of Rio's 40% Foda/Maneiríssimo crew), this September!

    Matt says: All sounding very vapourwave this to me folks. With a solid 'aasssthetic' that brings to mind playing SNES-era Donkey Kong on Val Kilmers while vintage Channel 4 space exploration vids play in the background. aka LOADS OF FUN.

    Sami

    Planing / Sickos

    Future Times enlists DC's Sami of the wonderful 1432R crew for more of that hallucinatory, refracted house music that's quickly becoming his trademark. "Planing" sees the producer head deeper into that 5D sound - drums are twisted through dimensions via an assortment of delays and flanges while a mystic flute line dances playfully in the shadows. Like taking LSD at a Goan full moon ritual, it's tribal nature is sent spiraling into the cosmos through a mountain of lysergia. "Sickos" pulls our head out of the trip for long enough for us get down on the floor with some swingin' and slammin' action which delicately positions fluttering keys over shoulder dropped drums and saturated bass. Another stone cold winner for team Future Times. You need.

    Matt says: 1432R staple, Sami returns with more of his 5th-dimension sound!
