Futureboogie, big things ahead

futureboogie

The future of Futureboogie (read here other news) looks bright. Among the leading names that the label produces are Christophe, Lukas, Waifs & Strays and Behling & Simpson.

According to label head honcho Dave Harvey, Futureboogie, which was started by Harvey and Steve Nickolls in 2011, is all about the “good time party music.”

The label has dubbed Ron Basejam’s remix of the White LampsIt’s You” as the most important they have produced.

The two first established their base in Leicester and have had many artists from Bristol in the line-up although they say it wasn’t their intention but local producers kept sending them fodder for the Bristol mill.

More than half of the line up from Futureboogie has been Bristol based.

“You can be earning not much money in Bristol and live quite well, which gives people the space to breathe and be creative,” said Harvey.

“Geographically it’s really small… there are all these people from disparate genres or subcultures that are all actually in the same place physically.”

The guys are constantly busy managing their label, programming festivals managing artists, bookings, and promoting parties.
