    The Future Sound Of London

    By Any Other Name

      A collection of unreleased tracks from the early 90's "Jumpin' & Pumpin'" era, when FSOL hid behind various guises. Generally revolving around bleep, hardcore and ambient house; three, then-recently-established genres that FSOL would explore and develop on throughout the extensive discography. A lot of these tracks have been out of print and quite sought after for many years, making this anthology quite a special releases for fans of Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans' boundary-pushing project.

      Papua New Guinea - Re-booted

        Four elusive, somewhat previously unofficial club remixes of the iconic "Papua New Guinea" come together on one 12" vinyl EP. All underground dance hits now in demand.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Matt says: Tasty remixes of one of the biggest dance tracks of all time. Two jungle remixes, one breakbeat and one for the house brigade. Lovely jubbly.

        Environment 7.003

          FSOL present the final instalment in the Environments Trilogy. “7.003” goes deeper and darker than the previous two albums, the flavour here harping back with memories of the groups 90s sounding pre “Dead Cities” album. On this release we have swamp laden electronics dripping from cavernous breakbeats weaving in and out of otherworldly chords and strings firmly back in the driving seat. FSOL deliver not only the final piece of the jigsaw but a clever jaw-dropingly sensorium.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: Crisp percussive trickles and paddling guitar snippets weave around each-other into echoing electronic chirps. There are moments of jagged, glitched unease but the soaring melodic direction and airy, echoic haze more than offset that. As ever, a wonderful and perfectly produced outing from FSOS.

          Papua New Guinea (Andrew Weatherall / Graham Massey Remixes) - 2023 Reissuee

            Originally out in 1991, FSOL's "Papua New Guinea" is one of those classic rave era moments. Combining a huge dub bassline with breakbeats, piano lines and synth washes, ethereal Bulgarian vocals and other atmospheric efx the track was a monster club / field tune back in the day. So much so that it got reissued a year later with a whole new set of remixes. UK techno originals Andrew Weatherall (Sabres Of Paradise) and Graham Massey (808 State) serve up a remix each while FSOL's Brian Dougans and Garry Cobain bring us four more. All that and the original too. It's all you need.

                Yage 2019

                  In 1986 iconic group The Future Sound of London released the UK Top 40 chart album "Dead Cities", from which came a track "Yage". Such has been the interest in this masterpiece of electronica over the years that the guys have been back into the studio to revisit it. "Yage 2019" takes the core of the original and rebuilds it. All together there are eleven tracks reconstructions and interpretations, woven together (as FSOL do) into a 42 minute dreamscape journey. A wonderful update to this iconic release.

                  Archived 9

                    The Future Sound of London's long and varied history stretches back almost 25 years and as such a vast amount of unreleased material exists in the FSOL archives. "Archived 9" brings together another 12 such tracks; in some cases these are completed but unreleased songs from that time, in others the songs have been reconstructed or enhanced and then further mixed to form the journey. This album is not just a collection of random off-cuts. It is a fully realized album, worthy of sitting alongside the rest of the band's critically acclaimed work. Did you know - The Future Sound of London were the first band to distribute their music via the internet, in 1994. Did you know - The Future Sound of London were the first band to use ISDN technology to transmit their music via the internet and also to radio stations across the world - a system that has now been adopted by the radio industry worldwide. (No I did not; but as I often say, every day's a school day here at Piccadilly Records... - ed).

                    Environments

                      First time ever on vinyl!!! "Environments" is generally regarded as ‘the great lost album’ by The Future Sound Of London. It has taken on almost mythical status with the group’s fan base. “Environments” was due for release much sooner after the 1993 release of the UK Top 10 album hit “Lifeforms”, and only now is it being released - back on the group’s original home, Jumpin’  & Pumpin’ Records.

                      This release also comes after the recent success of the ‘Archive’ series which has so far sold over 20,000 units across the different volumes and still climbing.

                      To re-cap, Brian Dougans and Garry Cobain began their musical partnership and friendship in Manchester, England, in the mid 1980s whilst the two were studying at Manchester University. Dougans had already been making electronic music for some time when they first began working in various local clubs. In 1988, Brian embarked on a project for the Stakker graphics company. The result was Stakker Humanoid. In the following three years the pair produced music under a variety of aliases, followed by the breakthrough classic ambient dub track Papua New Guinea in 1992, which was also the first release under the Future Sound of London moniker.

                      Environments 4

                        This is the fourth release in the critically acclaimed 'Environments' series and continues where the third left off. It is a fourteen track journey from the river's delta to no-man’s land where murmurations lead across supercontinents and back to the clear light of reality. Strings meet choirs - cascading down to the glass valleys of synthesised biophany.

                        “Murmurations” was the track featured on an exclusive vinyl 10” release for Record Store Day in 2012, it coincided with the CD version of this album’s release that year. The album also has collaborations with Riz Maslen (Neotropic) and Ivor Novello award winning composer Daniel Pemberton.


                        The follow up to the critically acclaimed "Environments" CD, this second album takes a new, more melodic orientated path for the band. The album is truly epic; 14 tracks and 57 minutes of strings, choirs, sea sounds, cellos, light beats and, of course, everything that made the first "Environments" album great. It also features collaborations with Max Richter, Daniel Pemberton and Will White (Propellerheads).

                        Since the original release of the CD in 2008, and subsequent releases in the series to “Environment 5” in 2014, there has been growing demand for vinyl and so for the first time this year we bring “Environments 2” in that format.
