From the very outset of dance culture, and right up to the present day, Brendan Collins, AKA DJ / Producer Futurebound
, has steadily developed an almost unsurpassable reputation for tearing up dancefloors on a worldwide scale.
Whether hes destroying venues such as Fabric (London), Womb (Tokyo), or in the studio, you know what youre getting with the sounds of Futurebound
Born and bred in Liverpool, the cultural and musical epicentre of the North of England, Futurebounds route to the top of his profession reads like a concise history of dance music. After the first illegal raves he attended in 1989, Futurebound
went onto pursue his passion for dance music, with DJs such as Fabio
, Mickey Finn
& Top Buzz serving as early influences.
From this, Futurebound
secured a home town residency in 1991, warming up for the likes of Carl Cox
, his first real break into DJing. Steadily the emerging influence of breakbeats grew on Futurebound
, leading him to book names such as LTJ Bukem
, Ray Keith
and 4 Hero for his own parties in the early nineties, and later lead him to start the notorious X events in 1999, some of which still rank as some of most important parties in Liverpools clubbing history.
His skills didnt just stop with DJing and promotion either. Since 1993 Futurebound
has been stamping his distinctive, rolling, peak time sounds on vinyl, initially with local producers. Inevitably however, more high - profile production and remix collaborations followed with the likes of J Majik
. Matrix, Digital & Adam-f. With his productions being released on imprints such as Infrared, Timeless, Moving Shadow, Metro and Frequency, and receiving heavy support over the years from the scenes hierarchy, the time seemed right for Futurebound
to expand his repertoire once again, by infusing his reputation on an entire imprint. Enter VIPER RECORDINGS
2003 saw the birth of Viper, started by Futurebound
himself. The label has so far spawned eight releases of the highest quality, with the first, Blind Cobblers Thumb by Futurebound
, achieving instant anthem status, and was more than ably backed by the monstrous Pied Piper .
7 further releases have followed, spanning a plethora of D&B styles, and have featured the likes of J-Majik & Wickamans Fleshwound, Barons slamming remix of Blind Cobblers thumb, Matrix & Futurebounds funk fuelled monster Strength 2 Strength, as well as the mighty Circuit Breakers project which saw Futurebound
pull in top draw tracks from State of Mind, Moving Fusion
, Probe & Sylo, Jaquan
Released in November 06 was an Excellent 12 from D&Bs new golden boys The Brookes Brothers on Viper release No.8 and moving into 2007 saw viper release its first album, as Futurebound
& Matrix released their hugely anticipated album `Universal Truth', Which has been tipped by many in the industry as album of the year. Following on from `Universal Truth' and Futurebound
together with Matrix have been drafted into remix none other than Justin Timberlake's `Love Stoned' for Sony/BMG as well turning in a blinding remix for Nu Tone's `System' track.
Other highlights expected in 07 is the `Universal Truth' remix e.p and a forthcoming `Matrix & Futurebound
in the mix compilation'.
