BackTheTooFuture

Been sat here thinking of a way to justify these two guys awesomness but its easier to allow them to talk:

BackTheTooFuture is a new monthly radio show on EatMusic online radio dot com, presented by 2 incredibly handsome young men. In their occasional absence, Matt Cuz and Joefish will be drafted in last minute as 5th choice replacement pairing.
Specialising in electronic junk and stuff past and present and beyond, the show will specialise in electronic junk and stuff past and present and beyond. The idea being that, in specialising in electronic junk and stuff past and present and beyond we will occasionally succeed in playing music what is good and sounds like it has been made 4 billion gajillion years into the future. OR 4 billion gajillion years into the past. OOOORRRR anytime in between. Give or take.

A monthly show and always keeping the listener involved, these two are here to stay playing purely for a love of the music. What more could you want? To see them in action? Lucky you.

Watch BackTheTooFuture @ Justin.tv

The selection is as upfront as you’d like alongside the selectors personal favourites. Loving this show.

So we’re back for 2012 with another diverse selection of upfront future beats. Being a new year it’s time for some changes – The main one being the switch to a fortnightly drop from here on out – Doing a weekly show often leaves us with little time for much else – Hopefully we can focus more on quality of content rather than rushing to get a show done.

Be assured that the blog will be updated weekly as ever to keep you in tune with current releases and events – don’t neglect to bookmark!

Forthcoming and Freebies

OK first up is the upcoming stuff we’re excited about and it doesnt come any more hotly anticipated than Blowfish by Chimpo. A serious riddim. Its a dancefloor track with a nod to the original raves whilst staying dancehall. The most exciting cut I’ve heard this year. Yeah its only 20 days in so what? its release 005 from the solid Estate Recordings camp and it drops on the 30th January. Check it, bag it, play it, bodypop to it. Featured on this weeks Robot Bodypop show. Ruff!

Chimpo Soundcloud

Next up is the forthcoming release on Ingredients Records.

The label had a solid year in 2011 and continue the pressure with Ingredients 025 from Krakota.

Side A serves up ‘Scraper’. Coming with the punchy snares and deep subs this track is as infectious as much as it is a reminder of the finer years of the neuro-jungle made popular by Ed Rush & Optical.

‘Tunnel Vision’ on the flip offers up a rich D&B roller that builds and skips through some smooth synths which has been on rotation all week at the Robot Bodypop.

Catch the freebie by Krakota; Be Myself VIP on his Soundcloud also featured on this weeks show. Out on the 23rd of January. Don’t sleep.

Krakota on Soundcloud

On the freebie tip there’s a nice varied selection of gratis music in this weeks show – And we are pleased to present it all here for your downloading enjoyment. Big respect goes out to all the artists for their collective generosity.

First up, mancunian Pále steps back into the frame with this techy roller named Ruckus.

As mentioned on this weeks podcast, The Weeknd‘s free album has been making waves since last November with it’s unique blend of sweet harmonies, haunting instrumentals and dark lyrical content. Essential listening. Download from their website here.

Hailing from the North West Borough (where? we’re confused) Sangam crafts hauntingly deep music with future garage overtones. This mysterious and well crafted EP is a generous giveaway.

FutureEverything Festival 16th – 19th May 2012 Mcr

FutureEverything is all about discovering and celebrating the latest developments at the intersection of art and technology. We find and share with you the small sparks that grow into fresh ways of seeing the world.

This gig sounds right up our street – A celebration of Art, Music and Technology based mainly in and around the grounds of Manchester’s famed Science & Industry Museum. Details are still to be confirmed regards the schedule but one confirmed event on the billboard which we will be sure not to miss is Amon Tobin‘s impromptu performance to the North of England at the Manchester Academy on the 19th of May. We recently commiserated missing him in London last year, so this one-off performance is somewhat uncanny!

It’s £25 plus fees for entry, or if you want you can buy a special limited edition wrist band for £55 from here which will grant access to all music events under the FutureEverything banner between the 16th and 19th of May. That also includes VIP access at the Amon Tobin gig. We’ll see you in there shall we?

See http://www.futureeverything.org for more details.
