Future Wildstyle Interview + ‘Make Them Bounce’ Premiere

Future Wildstyle 005

Here at the blog, we would like to say a massive thanks to Future Wildstyle and Bass=Win for giving us an exclusive interview with the lads and a premiere stream of ‘Make Them Bounce’ from their new EP ‘Hyper Vibes’ which you can buy here

Tell us a bit about yourself

We are two DJs and producers based in Sheffield .We met on the DJ circuit as we are both primerally DJs. We have both produced tracks in the past but we decided to try something new and join forces for this project. It has been a great way to work as we both bring so many different influences and styles to the table.

How would you describe your production style?

All our tracks come back to some kind of breakbeat or broken beat with a proper bass line. The last few releases have covered quite a range in tempo and that’s how we mean to carry on.

What your first experience of underground music and how did you get into the sound?

I loved the music long before I was old enough to go into the clubs so it was pirate radio and tape packs that supplied my music fix. In the early days a one hour set could include a whole range of beat patterns and influences from hip hop to reggae to soul plus loads more. The contrast today is some DJs play an hour set of about 9-10 records all sounding virtually the same. That’s a trap I never want us to fall into.

What is it about the current wave of dance music that appeals to you?

Popular or mainstream dance music has been through so many styles now from Electro to Hip Hop to House to Breakbeat to Jungle to DnB to Dubstep and Garage and now it seems to have come a full circle and gone back to House.

It feels like artists can now go in any direction musically and draw influences from anywhere along the musical journey. I know there never really was a rule book but if there ever was it really is irrelevant right now. The variety of new music coming out right now is more than ever.

Tell us a few of your all time and current fave producers?

I love people like DJ Premier, Pete Rock and all those guys but I equally love Remarc and 4hero. Those are the stand out producers for me who have a real groove to their music.

Where have you DJ’ed?

We have just started out Djing out as Future Wildstyle it has been really fun as we have both been DJs for years and joining forces means we can add more to our sets. We are currently using the Serato Sp1 to re-create some of the tracks live as part of the DJ set. For most of our tracks we now have a stripped back version that can have the vocals and key elements played from the SP1 over the top. It means DJ sets are even more fun as we can both be hands on throughout rather than taking it in turn to mix in tracks.

We recently warmed up for the first Boiler room in Sheffield. I was really glad we had spent time developing the more live part of our set as Boiler Room is such an intimate space and the camera is right in your face!

Describe to us your approach to a DJ set, do you like to gently warm up the crowd or go for the bangers or more of a journey approach?

Its all about the crowd for us. Every set has to be tailored for the people stood in front of us. I love the challenge of warming up a crowd just as much as playing a peak time set.

Of all the tunes you’ve made, which is your favourite?

Wow that’s a hard one. I think the Ultrafunkula track was exciting to test out on the dance floors as it just worked straight away in the clubs. There really is something special about seeing a thousand people dancing to a track and hearing it on a big club sound system at the height of a night and remembering back to us producing it on a rainy Wednesday afternoon.

How did you link up with Bass=Win?

Easy we just only hit up labels that we were already into and already buying music from.

As a producer, you keep an open mind and an open palette producing in various styles, who do you draw influences from?

Between us we cover years of buying and playing out music so plenty of basses are covered. I really made my DJ career back in the day as Hip Hop DJ but equally I got hooked on music by early Jungle stuff so I think those two styles find their way into the music from my side

What are the vital elements to making a tune that come into play when you’re in the studio?

Its normally a sample or concept that comes first. We start out thinking we are making one type of track and it normally takes a whole new direction and ends up somewhere completely different.

But that’s the fun of producing really.

So before we hit play on this new forthcoming release of yours on Hyper Vibes EP, can you tell us a bit about the inspiration behind it?

FUTURE WILDSTYLE COVER resized

We didn’t just want to make an EP of straight up club bangers (although that is always a massive temptation) there are a few samples in here I have been waiting to use for a while and they just fit in perfectly making the tracks more than just dance floor tools.

Any final words and shout outs?

Bass=Win has been a great home for the last few releases and have been invaluable in us getting our music out to a wider audience. Not forgetting for Liam at Kitchen Artist for getting on board with the project. Also we have to big up all the DJs playing our stuff and promoters adding us to their line ups we have been overwhelmed by the response and support form the scene. Can’t wait to see what the rest of 2016 has in store for us!
