"Full of restraint and an acute sense of dynamics, Another constantly feels like it's about to erupt, as if the bubbling electronics and sporadic drum claps are about to pierce the relative calm of the song's surface.

Flume

21-year-old rising wunderkind, Flume, creates atmospheric, beat-driven music that draws on a range of influences to create a fresh new sound; one capable of bringing a festival crowd to fever pitch and then bringing it right back down again on demand.

He's built up a huge fanbase, thanks to appearances at Splendour in the Grass, triple j's House Party and his sold-out national Australian 'Infinity Prism' Tour in April 2013.

It's testament to his originality and talent that both sides of the Atlantic are flipping for Flume. Recent highlights include a debut album going Platinum in Australia, with the lead single, Holdin On, going double-platnium. Flume has also sold-out performances around Europe & US and completed remixes for acts such as Disclosure, Marlena Shaw & Hermitude.

Touch Sensitive

Touch Sensitive's debut single 'Body Stop' was one of the first tracks released on Future Classic, all the way back in 2004. Cloaked in anonymity it's cosmic vibes and Italo authenticity made it a cult favourite among discerning DJ circles from East London to Brooklyn. Re-emerging in 2006 as Arithmatixx! it was later revealed both aliases to be the solo work of Van She co-founding member Michael Di Francesco.

Fast forward to 2012 and his third track 'Real Talk', a collaboration with Anna Lunoe, saw Touch Sensitive spend five (5!) months at the top of the Beatport indie-dance charts with what was universally recognised as one of the underground club hits of the year.

2013 see's the release of his debut EP 'Show Me The Pizza Guy', previewed by LA super-producers Classixx in their mix for The Fader, elaborating that "Pizza Guy" transports me to running the final stretch of my high school x country races in slow motion.

What So Not

Sydney bros Emoh Instead and Harley Streten have been DJing & producing remixes for quite some time now under the name What So Not, and we've recently taken them under our wing for Future Classic management.

Released in Mid November 2011, their debut 4 track EP '7 Dollar Bill' caused quite a stir: Switch, Bag Raiders, Sinden, Boys Noize & countless others, all on board for this new sound. 2012 saw an onslaught of epic remix's from the pair, most notably their mix of Major Lazer's 'Get Free'.

Now, the duo have just dropped their debut single, 'The Quack' via Sweat It Out in Australia, and Skrillex's label OWSLA internationally. What So Not has just finished up a national tour across Australia and delivered two defining sets at this year's Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay.

Welcome the newest addition to the Future Classic management roster: Charles Murdoch.

Charles' debut EP, Weathered Straight, is due out early September. The lead single, Dekire, features the vocals of Melbourne’s producer/singer Oscar Key-Sung and is already up online, amassing over 100,000 plays via SoundCloud.

Mitzi

Mitzi first started out as a bedroom project of Jad Lee and Dominige Bird on the Sunshine Coast, but soon after winning the Bang Gang 12 Inches Remix Competition, playing a variety of gigs, and having a little line-up shuffle, Mitzi have now become one of Brisbane’s most exciting new acts.

Specialising in indie-dance and disco jams, the four-piece have been blowning audiences away with their debut album 'Truly Alive'. Mixed in London by Ash Workman (Metronomy, Summer Camp, Klaxons), the deep grooves of ‘Who Will Love You Now’ showcase Mitzi's unique brand of garage disco, NYC indie and the light heartedness of Australian pop.

The band's impressive live resume includes sets at Splendour In The Grass and supports for Foster The People, Yelle, Neon Indian, Little Dragon, Whitest Boy Alive and Bag Raiders.

Panama

Steeped in splashes of yacht rock, hopeful house music and an avid appreciation for the ‘90s, Sydney quintet Panama make music that is brimming with a quiet, golden nostalgia as it is shimmering and anthemic in its delivery.

Panama first made themselves known with acclaimed debut single ‘Magic’, which was accompanied by remixes from disco deviants Midnight Magic and Gavin Russom. Their debut ‘It’s Not Over’ EP picks up on that bright promise while expanding it’s palette with six tracks that are equally awash with intoxicating rhythm as they are detailed with personal, reflective hues.

Recorded in the city where dreams are made, Panama’s ‘It’s Not Over’ EP glows with the airborne optimism of exciting new possibilities and provides a clear statement of intent that the ascension of this Sydney quintet has only just begun.

Scenic

Perth's Scenic are set to release their sophomore EP via Future Classic soon. Joining the FC roster in 2011 in their teens, the four-piece released 'Another Sky', a dreamy collection of cosmic electronic pop, featuring a typically classy disco edit from remixer du jour The Magician.

On the forthcoming Shockwaves EP, Scenic's sound has evolved, filtering their knack for the electronic through a psychedelic acid wash. Described as the missing link between Phoenix and Tame Impala, the lead single and title track is sunny, tight and punchy, counterbalanced by the more contemplative 'Overflow' and the spacey epic 'Hours On End'.

In February, Scenic brought their live show to the Perth International Arts Festival, sharing the stage with label mates Flight Facilities, Mitzi and Panama.

Chet Faker

First cut ‘Talk is Cheap’ was part of the 'Built on Glass’ writing / recording sessions, recorded and produced by Chet alone over a two-year period. It melds Chet’s effortless RnB vocals and pop melodies with a youth spent making house, disco and intricate beats.

Cashmere Cat

- Wedding Bells EP

Not dependent on vocalists, Cashmere Cat’s own music is crammed full of smart melodic ideas and arrangement. These are songs built in equal parts from glittering RnB, touching on French electro, driven by the heavyweight bottom end of 00’s club Hip Hop – this is wide, cinematic and unabashedly bright new dance music.

Rarely does a new artist emerge with such a unique voice across their work. Cashmere Cat is unconcerned with where he fits with DJs and is more influenced by Pop & Hip Hop then today’s stadium filling dance acts. But, his music is smarter for it.

The four track Wedding Bells EP brings you Cashmere Cat’s first vinyl release and a taste of what’s to come. For those previously familiar with Cashmere Cat, the Wedding Bells EP represents the next stage in his development with striking attention to detail, whilst never losing its hooks.

In a world in which upstart DiY talent is flooding the gates of electronic music, a few recent voices have been so strong as to be startling. Lapalux – AKA 25-year-old Stuart Howard – is certainly one such.

As the only British counterpart of LA-driven Brainfeeder, Lapalux casts a unique and mystical light in his debut album Nostalchic. 'Without You' and 'Guuurl' have been leading the airwaves at FC HQ.

Bicep

It's been a pretty fun couple of months in the Adult Disco with Todd Terje and Tiger & Woods both hitting the club in recent months. In Feb things are going to get a whole lot more muscular with the Australian debut of one our favourite production teams / DJ teams / bloggers / label guys… BICEP!!!

With an aesthetic that is camp / fun / light hearted, this Irish duo have been pushing and more recently making some of the best straight up house tunes we've heard in ages. With tunes like $tripper and last year's mega bomb Vision Of Love released on their very own Feel My Bicep imprint these guys really are onto a good thing.

Lindstrøm

Going by the name Lindstrøm, Norwegian born Hans Peter Lindstrom is a multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer. Having fast become Norway’s most notable musical export, he’s responsible for spearheading the ‘space disco’ sound across the globe alongside Prins Thomas and Todd Terje. High profile remixes for Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Roxy Music, Doves, The Horrors and LCD Soundsystem have helped Lindstrøm enjoy a cult like status within dance music circles.

A three time Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammys) winner, Lindstrøm will have your feet firmly on the Paradiso Town Hall dancefloor.

With support from Future Classic DJs and more to be announced, don’t miss this party as it continues into the night!

Tiger & Woods

Tiger & Woods are Larry Tiger and David Woods, two European producers shrouded in mystery and responsible for some very special tuned, remixed, over-dubbed, sliced and diced extended disco edits.

One day in a fairly dusty basement (digging for records of course), these two fine gentlemen nearly got into a fight over a nameless boogie record which is so rare (super rare!) that even the usual disco detectives hadn’t discovered it yet.

It has been a huge year for the Terjelator with his "It's The Arps" EP getting play everywhere, in particular the lead single "Inspector Norse"! As well as his own productions and starting his own 'Olsen' record label, he's turned in killer reworks for Hot Chip, Lindstrom, Bjorn Torske, Joakim and Units to name just a few.

Todd Terje is more than just a kickass producer and edits man though. Just ask around - the man really really knows how to throw down in the DJ booth!

Isolée

No one sounds like Isolée. Not even close. The name says it all: one-of-a-kind."

Over the last 15 years, Isolée has managed to create a breathtaking trademark sound. In 1998, Isolee achieved a timeless stroke of genius with Beau Mot Plage (Playhouse). He enchanted listeners across genres and the world, pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music further than they'd ever been pushed before and in doing so redefined the new breed of European house music.

More recently Isolee released 2011's Well Spent Youth on DJ Koze's label Pampa which again was met with critical acclaim.

DJ Koze

DJ Koze is known for his eclectic taste, as a DJ, producer and record label owner and what his eccentric tone brings to electronic music.

Since rising from Germany's hip hop scene in the mid 90's Koze's turntablism skills from years of hip-hop have shredded the techno/house DJ formula into bits, his remixes of Matthew Dear, Matias Aguayo, Battles, Who Made Who and Gonzales are all classics in many DJ's record bags, and his record label Pampa is home to the melodic minimalist Robag Wruhme, the drunk house sounds of Axel Boman, revered German gentleman Isolée and Koze's very own tough house joints.

Thomas is not just another DJ, producer, record label honcho – he’s someone with a quirky sense of humor (check his Q&A above) and a sound and ear in a mix of musical fields - with a hunger for disco, house, minimal techno, electro, Krautrock, jazz fusion and space rock it's no wonder LCD Soundsystem, Chemical Brothers, Doves & DJ Harvey come to him for remixes.

A live show that is unique and highly anticipated, appearing in Australia for the very first time.

Michael Mayer

Future Classic is proud to present renowned German DJ & co-owner of the iconic Kompakt Record Label, Michael Mayer, as he embarks on his most ambitious world tour yet in support of his sophomore full length "Mantasy".

As a DJ, label owner, producer & remixer, Michael Mayer remains one of Germany's core celebrities in dance music. Spending his weekdays overseeing Kompakt's output as well as its distribution wing - the home to over 50 independent record labels - it is quite an amazing feat then that he can sneak into the studio to produce his own music & remix the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Foals & Rufus Wainwright.

An intimate & sweeping trip to the core of the Kompakt sound itself, Mantasy picks up on the worldwide esteem the producer/DJ is held in, & it does so in the most versatile manner, perfectly showcasing the many, sides of Michael Mayer.

Kenji Takimi

Ask around in Japan about house and disco and you won't get too far without the name Kenji Takimi coming up. There are a number of reasons for this: His label, Crue-L Records, has been at the forefront of alternative Japanese music since the early '90s, presenting acts like Cornelius and Buffalo Daughter alongside work from dance favourites Theo Parrish and DJ Harvey. The label has also been home to his own music: Takimi's projects include Crue-l Grand Orchestra, Luger-Ego and Being Borings, the latter of which was responsible for one of last year's under-the-radar gems in Love House of Love.

A BBQ, friendly bar staff and turntables on the balcony in the sunshine set the scene for these under-the-radar sessions that gave our local and international guests (often performing under alias) the chance to play more diverse sets than they would in the club.

The event also spawned a four part 12 inch vinyl series and compilation cd.

Touch Sensitive

Touch Sensitive's first single 'Body Stop' was one of the first released on Future Classic. A track cloaked in anonymity, its cosmic vibes and italo authenticity made it a cult favourite among discerning dj circles from East London to Brooklyn.

Fast forward to 2012 and his third track 'Real Talk', a collaboration with Anna Lunoe, saw Touch Sensitive spend five (5!) months at the top of the Beatport indie-dance charts with what was universally recognised as one of the underground hits of the year.

2013 see's the release of his debut EP 'Pizza Guy/Show Me', previewed by LA super-producers Classixx in their mix for The Fader and Triple J. They affectionally cite that "The Touch Sensitive tracks are masterfully produced and ultra-emotive. 'Pizza Guy' transports me to running the final stretch of my high school x country races in slow motion."

Charles' debut EP, Weathered Straight, is due out early September. The lead single, Dekire, features the vocals of Melbourne’s producer/singer Oscar Key-Sung and is already up online, amassing over 100,000 plays via SoundCloud.

Flume

Flume is a local Sydney beat maker who's only 21 years of age.

Flume got his first taste for producing at age 13 (!!) from the most unlikely of places - a music production program he found in a cereal box.

It began Flume's obsession with all things synthetic, and started his addiction for plug-ins, sample packs & vintage analogue hardware.

Sleepless is Flume's debut EP and has enough lush pads, chopped and chipmunked vocals, saw synths and awesome percussion to impress any fan of Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, Seekae or Space Dimension Controller.

Le Coq Sportif

We are creating a music program for Le Coq Sportif, French pioneers of 'sport chic'.

Future Classic has designed a custom 7 inch record bag, band t-shirts and is curating a series of cover songs by Australian bands of classic French songs.

The first tune is by Perth band Scenic, covering classic French artist Air - famous for their critically acclaimed album Moon Safari, and their score for Sofia Coppola's film The Virgin Suicides.

The the flip side of the first 7 inch is a cover by Mitzi of a super rare disco classic by Zig Zag.

If you haven't already wrapped your ears around them, grab the downloads from the Le Coq Sportif facebook page.

Becks Berlin Sessions

A series of music events and content showcasing Berlin's cutting edge electronic music culture. Organised in collaboration with Thought By Them the series took place over 18 months incorporating 4 tours, 10 international artists and dozens of local support acts performing in the best clubs around Aust/NZ.

Future Classic curated the events, organised the touring schedules, marketing, art direction and design surrounding the series. Parallel to the events we commissioned video documentaries showcasing Berlin club culture that were featured on the Becks microsite created by media partner inthemix.com.au. We also compiled 2 premium CDs with 30,000 copies free at bars around the country when ordering a round of Becks.

Artists included Jazzanova, Stimming, Ame, Justus Kohncke, Solomun, Marcus Worgull, Move D, Permanent Vacation, Isolee and Arto Mwambe.


Volkswagen

'Marco Polo'

We provided music strategy, supervision, licensing and marketing support for the launch of the new Volkswagen 'Marco Polo' campaign by Play Communications.

They created a facebook page for a character 'Marco Polo' who knows his music and arts and recommends gigs and other cultural happenings for people to check out. Marco recommends various gigs to his 'friends' with the first to respond 'Polo' getting picked up for in the new VW Polo and taken to the shows.

Check out the campaign here.
