THE SOUNDS OF THE FUTURE
Future Sound are a Sydney based music collective, radio show and label with an ear for great beats and equally great artists. Currently found right in the midst of the Sydney beat scene, Future Sound are throwing a launch party / EP Launch next week that we think you ought to get down to. We caught up with them for a quick chat about Sydney’s current beat scene and why it’s out of the bag, Future Sound, and what we can expect from the launch party / EP release next week.
Future Sound is a collective / radio show and label. How did you get started?
The whole collective and label idea came out of a need for us to showcase and promote guys we are digging and loving and also playing on our radio show. We want to be able to share music we like with people out there, as well as act as platform to showcase music, especially for local music that we play on our radio show.
What can we expect to hear at the Launch Party next week?
Expect to here some really ambient electronic beats from J.rojas, and more ignorant rap and trap from PaperToy. Think of us as Stones Throw meets Soulection meets BrainFeeder - with some ignorant rap and trap for good measure.
You’re co releasing J.roja's EP on Moose records and Future Sound that day. Tell us about that.
Our relationship with Moose has gone from fans to collaborators, Moose is the home of Andrea, who we have always looked to and admired. We met him over the internet through another friend Jowy (Shout out to Jowy). We sent them J.rojas EP and they loved it and that's how it went down.
You’ve got a solid line-up of local producer/artists playing, including J.Rojas, Meare, Papertoy and Kanyon. What’s your take on the current Sydney scene?
The Sydney beat scene is huge and finally getting out of the dark basements and making it's way on the radio waves. So many crews doing their thing and pushing the sound.
And finally, why should everyone come along to the party next week?
Everyone needs to come hear and see these guys for free now because we can guarantee you the next time you might want to go see these guys might be costing you 50-150 at big shows and festivals. These guys are immensely talented and down to earth individuals who will take you on a roller coast of emotions and feelings through their art of music .
