Jakarta’s Future10 collective has released its first-ever EP, 'Future10 EP Vol.1'. It comprises four tracks from the city’s well-known selectors; Anton Wirjono, Hogi Wirjono, Leftlove, Baypoet and AP.
Since 1995, the collective has been at the forefront of the Indonesian dance music scene. Known for its club nights that showcase fresh sounds from the Indonesian underground (with a good dose of classic cuts for their ‘Back in the Days’ events), it has now launched its own record label and a debut release.
“This EP represents the diverse range of music we offer, just like in the events we’ve held over the years. We never stick to one particular sound, but we do stick to a particular vibe,” mentions Future10.
Each producer was given the freedom to express their distinct sonic vision that best represents “the Future10 vibe”. Chock full of percussive elements, the EP is also a homage to old-school raves with its psychedelic, dreamy and intense soundscapes.
