In the second generation of FUT.UR.ISM, we forecast the direction of dance music over two discs with tunes from all corners of the globe contributing to a journey of majestic house and indie electronica. In an exclusive playlist for Pagesdigital, Aden Mullens has mined both discs to hit us with five hand-picked gems that will be taking over your iPods and dancefloors in 2014. Get familiar.
Nicole Millar – ‘Taken’
Great dreamy pop tune from a very talented Sydney artist. Nicole’s ability has certainly become apparent of late with her feature on Peking Duk’s top 10 single ‘High’. And at just 20 years of age, I’m sure we haven’t heard her best. Not even close. Subscribe.
What So Not – ‘Jaguar’
The party-time collab between ARIA superstar Flume and social media gun Emoh Instead. Both doing dope shit as solo artists, but together What So Not are lording the bass party network from AU to the world. The certified WSN bass design on Jaguar is second to none PLUS it includes a fierce cat scream.
Oscar Key Sung – ‘All I Could Do’
Another amazing project out of Melbourne is Oscar Key Sung. Heartfelt electronic soul food at a pleasant tempo. Be sure to check out the eeepic music video for ‘All I Could Do’ then get in love with his live Boiler Room set. Recorded mid-week on top of a sunny Melbourne rooftop, Oscar and Andras Fox performed with fellow Melburnian Chet Faker.
Jungle – ‘The Heat’
A well-worthy amount of hype has surrounded the UK group Jungle since dropping two singles with two sick videos in 2013. Moody funk with soul hooks, I’m really excited to hear an LP or see a live show from these guys. It’s feeling like a Rudimental 2.0.
Justin Martin – ‘Buggin’
‘Buggin’ isn’t your traditional song. It’s a based-out drumming romp that make me feel weird, a good weird. Justin Martin is the sovereign son of the San Fran bass house scene and he’s got big things coming this year.
