Future Bubblers

​9 ear-pricking​ ​snapshots​ – 22nd​ ​September​ ​on​ ​LP!

Consisting​ ​of​ ​nine,​ ​ear-pricking​ ​snapshots​ ​of​ ​the​ ​fast-rising​ ​alumni​ ​from​ ​​Future​ ​Bubblers​, this​ ​is​ ​a​ ​new​ ​collection​ ​of​ ​especially-recorded​ ​tracks.​ ​With​ ​Gilles​ ​Peterson’s​ ​new​ ​artist development​ ​scheme​ ​searching​ ​for,​ ​selecting​ ​and​ ​mentoring​ ​new​ ​artists,​ ​this​ ​compilation shows​ ​the​ ​​Year​ ​1​ ​​Bubblers​ ​–​ that​ ​is,​ ​the​ ​first​ ​year​ ​–​​ ​​coming​ ​to​ ​fruition.​ ​Realised​ ​with​ ​funding from​ ​the​ ​Talent​ ​Development​ ​Partner​ ​scheme​ ​from​ ​the​ ​PRS​ ​Foundation,​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​widespread map​ ​of​ ​left-of-centre​ ​musical​ ​innovation,​ ​it​ ​spans​ ​from​ ​hi-def,​ ​mesmerising​ ​electronics,​ ​to no-holds-barred​ ​grime​ ​and​ ​soft-focus,​ ​rhodes-tinkling​ ​jazz.

For​ ​new​ ​musicians​ ​or​ ​producers​ ​finding​ ​their​ ​feet​ ​in​ ​the​ ​music​ ​industry,​ ​having​ ​some​ ​support is​ ​vital.​ ​From​ ​figuring​ ​out​ ​how​ ​to​ ​hone​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​sound,​ ​to​ ​navigating​ ​a​ ​way​ ​through​ ​the myriad​ ​worlds​ ​of​ ​record​ ​labels,​ ​promoters​ ​and​ ​the​ ​press,​ ​there’s​ ​no​ ​shortage​ ​of​ ​potential pitfalls.​ ​That’s​ ​where​ ​Future​ ​Bubblers​ ​comes​ ​in:​ ​started​ ​in​ ​2015,​ ​it’s​ ​been​ ​supported​ ​by​ ​Arts Council​ ​England​ ​to​ ​try​ ​and​ ​achieve​ ​two,​ ​connected​ ​aims.​ ​Firstly,​ ​to​ ​find​ ​and​ ​mentor individual​ ​artists​ ​making​ ​music​ ​that’s​ ​new,​ ​underground​ ​and​ ​innovative.​ ​Second,​ ​to​ ​nurture and​ ​grow​ ​the​ ​scenes​ ​that​ ​already​ ​exist​ ​in​ ​cities​ ​outside​ ​of​ ​London.

A​ ​key​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​programme​ ​is​ ​the​ ​individual​ ​mentors​ ​which​ ​artists​ ​are​ ​paired​ ​with.​ ​A mixture​ ​of​ ​artists​ ​and​ ​those​ ​working​ ​behind-the-scenes​ ​in​ ​independent​ ​music,​ ​the​ ​range​ ​of individuals​ ​is​ ​testament​ ​to​ ​the​ ​scheme’s​ ​diversity.​ ​From​ ​longstanding,​ ​well-respected musicians​ ​like​ ​​Will​ ​LV​ ​​(signed​ ​by​ ​labels​ ​like​ ​Hyperdub​ ​and​ ​Keysound),​ ​to​ ​industry​ ​insiders (from​ ​labels​ ​​Ninja​ ​Tune​ ​​and​ ​Peterson’s​ ​​Brownswood​),​​ ​​there’s​ ​a​ ​breadth​ ​which​ ​speaks​ ​to the​ ​tough-to-pin-down​ ​musical​ ​approaches​ ​on​ ​the​ ​album.

As​ ​well​ ​as​ ​the​ ​record’s​ ​individual,​ ​eclectic​ ​approaches,​ ​it’s​ ​testament​ ​to​ ​a​ ​collaborative​ ​spirit. In​ ​Yazmin​ ​Lacey’s​ ​appearance​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Congi​ ​track,​ ​and​ ​Three​ ​Body​ ​Trio’s​ ​collaboration​ ​with Kid​ ​Katharsis,​ ​it​ ​speaks​ ​to​ ​a​ ​likeminded​ ​musical​ ​mentality.​ ​Having​ ​connected​ ​through​ ​the programme,​ ​Yazmin​ ​and​ ​Three​ ​Body​ ​Trio​ ​have​ ​started​ ​The​ ​Running​ ​Circle​ ​–​ ​​ ​a​ ​new​ ​record label,​ ​which​ ​recently​ ​released​ ​Yazmin’s​ ​​Black Moon EP.​ ​Plus,​ ​the​ ​artwork​ ​for​ ​this compilation​ ​was​ ​produced​ ​by​ ​none​ ​other​ ​than​ ​Munro.

Prior​ ​to​ ​this​ ​collection’s​ ​release,​ ​they’ve​ ​all​ ​accrued​ ​individual​ ​support​ ​from​ ​an​ ​array​ ​of sources:​ ​Snowy​ ​has​ ​been​ ​​profiled​ ​by​ ​Huck​,​ ​supported​ ​by​ ​​Red​ ​Bull​ ​Music​ ​​and​ ​featured​ ​on Logan​ ​Sama​’s​ ​1xtra​ ​show;​ ​Revenu​ ​was​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​put​ ​together​ ​a​ ​tribute​ ​to​ ​Basil​ ​Kirchin​ ​as
part​ ​of​ ​​Hull​ ​City​ ​of​ ​Culture​;​ ​Kid​ ​Katharsis​ ​had​ ​his​ ​Brownswood​ ​basement​ ​session supported​ ​on​ ​​Clash;​ ​​Yazmin​ ​Lacey​ ​has​ ​guested​ ​on​ ​​Jamz​ ​Supernova​’s​ ​1xtra​ ​show,​ ​been picked​ ​as​ ​​6​ ​Music’s​ ​​Recommends​ ​Track​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Week​ ​and​ ​been​ ​supported​ ​by​ ​​gal-dem​; Congi​ ​have​ ​been​ ​​profiled​ ​on​ ​Huck​.
