Future Sounds of Sofia are a relatively new Bulgarian D&B team who, having spent the last few years running events and bringing all manner of underground talent to their native land, are now branching out and starting their own label. Their first release showcases 13 tracks from Bulgarian producers spanning a variety of styles, from upfront tech and neuro to deeper minimal and liquid tunes.
Familiar names make the roster by way of tracks from Cooh and L33, who both contribute slabs of hefty, rolling tech funk. Similarly banging beats are available from lesser known producers such as Smartech and Ogonek, who contributes an interesting track bringing together melodic elements with an absolutely rattling drum/bass underpin.
Deeper vibes come from Presize’s minimal drum workout Initial and Underspawn & Robustus’ jazzy liquid roller Scotty & The Sun God, the latter of which stood out for me as a nicely polished slice of deep yet dancefloor oriented beats. You can hear clips of some of the tracks below so check it out and head over to the FSS Bandcamp page to pre-order the album on CD or digital, dropping October 6th.
