Grammy-Nominated Act Caribou Added To Further Future 002 Lineup

 

After the unexpected December additions of Lee Burridge, Leftfield, and the Robot Heart crew to the FF002 lineup, Further Future surprises audiophiles yet again by adding recently Grammy-Nominated Canadian artist Caribou. Taking place from April 29 – May 1st, 2016 at the Moapa River Reservation outside Las Vegas, the second year festival disregards all sonic bounds with its profound curation of genre-defying musicians from all over the globe.

 

Named “Best Music Festival” by Las Vegas Weekly with its debut, Further Future focuses on more than just music with its curatorial efforts put toward technology, speakers, wellness, art, and gastronomy — all designed into the community that holds it together.

 

Further Future adds Caribou to an already hefty lineup including Four Tet, Nicolas Jaar, Easy Star All-Stars, Dixon, Kid Koala, DJ Tennis, Crazy P, Derrick Carter, &ME, Oneohtrix Point Never, The Pharcyde, Daedelus, Andy Stott, Still Corners, Terry Francis, Low Leaf and many more confirmed to perform at the breathtaking location.

 

For Caribou, Further Future will be the perfect place to display his highly-revered album Our Love, released in 2014 and already crowned Electronic Album of the Year at Canada’s Juno Awards and nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the upcoming Grammys, taking place February 2016. Our Love has quickly become one of electronic music’s most celebrated albums of the past few years, renowned for its poignant vocals and alluring instrumentations.

Press play on the LP, and you will quickly recognize the minimal mastery of Caribou’s veteran composer Dan Snaith, also known for his more club-oriented project Daphni. If the nominations and awards weren’t enough, the album also received the coveted praise of “Best New Music” on Pitchfork, was ranked #5 on yearly top album lists from Consequence of Sound and The Guardian, and landed #2 on Huffington Post’s “Best Electronic Albums of 2014” list.

 

At Further Future 002, Snaith will be backed by his live band for an enthralling performance that includes guitar, drums, vocals, synths, and more. Get a taste of Caribou with the hit track “Can’t Do Without You,” and witness the group’s extraordinary live show at Pitchfork Music Festival from 2014.

 

The next major announcements will include vision speakers, wellness workshops, and a gourmet food lineup, rounding out the heart and soul of the Further Future aesthetic. On-site accommodations for boutique and self-camping at the festival are now available, and early reservations are highly recommended.

Further Future 002 Update – Legendary British Act Leftfield – First US Show Since 2011

furtherfuture5Legendary British Act Leftfield Will Perform First US Show Since 2011 At Further Future 002

 

After sold out shows across Europe this winter, one of electronic music’s greatest acts – Leftfield – will be performing at Further Future 002, their first US show since Coachella in 2011, and only their second US appearance in 15 years. The legendary act, credited for sparking the original progressive house movement, was a key influencer in spreading the UK electronic sound of the 90’s alongside peers like The Crystal Method, The Chemical Brothers, Underworld and The Prodigy.

Leftfield will be performing at the award-winning boutique festival, Further Future, taking place in the desert beyond Las Vegas from April 29 to May 01, 2016 alongside a who’s who of international legends and pioneers such as Four Tet, Nicolas Jaar, Easy Star All-Stars, Kid Koala, DJ Tennis, Crazy P, Andy Stott, Derrick Carter, &ME, Dixon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Dixon, The Pharcyde, Daedelus, Still Corners, Terry Francis and 60 more artists.

 

“I can’t think of a better way to bring our new album and new show to the USA than doing it in the desert with Further Future. It’s rare that we play in the US and always special. This is going to be a great event.” – Neil Barnes of Leftfield

 

Described by Mixmag as “The single most influential production team in British dance music,” Leftfield was essential to the evolution of electronic culture in England and beyond, universally heralded as the production team that brought house music back from the brink of commercial mediocrity. Leftfield’s 1995 album Leftism remains one of defining statements of 90’s dance music.

 

The 90s were all but over when the second Leftfield album appeared in Autumn 1999. Rhythm And Stealth worked with a darker hue and more pronounced techno influence, guests including Roots Manuva, MC Cheshire Cat and Afrika Bambaataa on first single Afrika Shox, which reached the UK top ten. The album – like its predecessor – would be nominated for a Mercury prize while one of its tracks, Phat Planet, soundtracked the award-winning ‘Surfer’ advert for Guinness. After one more single, June 2000’s Swords, Leftfield wound down operations. It was a full decade later that the band, now led solely by Neil Barnes, returned for a series of stunning headline performances at some of 2010’s hottest festivals including Rockness, Benicassim, L.E.D and Creamfields.

 

In 2015, Leftfield’s first album in 16 years ‘Alternative Light Source’, has already been dubbed “a masterpiece of texture” by The Observer and revered for its “pulse-quickening beats, widescreen instrumentals and satisfyingly chunky electro” by The Independent. Watch the “Head And Shoulders” music video here to get a taste for yourself, premiered by Pitchfork and featuring Sleaford Mods and winner of the ‘Best Dance’ video at the UKMVAs. Other vocalist contributors on the album include Polica’s Channy, and Tunde Adebimpe from TVOTR.

 

Leftfield is now reaching a new generation of dance music aficionados, simultaneously leaving veteran lovers of the scene rejoicing with each new song and tour date. Performances in the US have always been elusive since their formation over 25 years ago, inspiring the Further Future team to seek out Leftfield for what will undoubtedly be an awe-inspiring show in a location divergent from the group’s traditional booking.

With Phase 3, Further Future returns to the very foundation that helped start this journey by adding long time friend and legendary house/techno DJ Lee Burridge. The brains behind the highly successful All Day I Dream party series has been a king of the underground since the 80s, conquering and helping progress dance movements in Hong Kong, England, and America. His renowned ability to ignite and move a crowd will be on full display when he takes on the Robot Heart Bus for the first time outside Burning Man.

Rounding out phase 3 are Robot Heart residents Benjamin Alexander, John Dill, and prominent aural curator Swamy. They join a stacked lineup featuring Nicolas Jaar, Four Tet, Derrick Carter, &ME, Daedelus, DJ Tennis, The Pharcyde, Easy Star All-Stars, Dixon, WhoMadeWho, Oneohtrix Point Never, Kid Koala, Still Corners, Crazy P, Terry Francis, Andy Stott, Greg Wilson, Matt Tolfrey, HVOB, Elderbrook, and much more.

 

Digging into the worlds of house, techno, hip-hop, downtempo, glitch, dub, acoustic, and more, the electrifying lineup allows attendees to immerse themselves in sounds from far reaching corners of the globe, striking a balance between discovery and familiarity with an unrelenting flair for artists not often billed at major North American festivals.

Further Future is also pleased to announce their collaboration with the Moapa Paiutes again, returning to the Moapa River Indian Reservation for year two. Located just one hour northeast of the Vegas strip, the destination will provide the canvas for an otherworldly experience in a setting beyond the confines of everyday life.

 

While the music lineup nearing completion, this is just the beginning of what will be offered. Further Future will soon announce vision speakers, a food lineup, yoga teachers, accommodations, and much more. It’s a place to grow, learn, and pursue a better future with like-minded individuals. 

 

The recently unveiled vision speakers video exemplified this goal, showcasing the profound ideas shared by renowned thought leaders from SoundCloud, Google X, Evernote, Artsy, Otherlab, and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. It’s this passion for knowledge that rounds out what Further Future works to achieve, allowing attendees to expand their conscious while reveling in enlightening music. Watch the recap video from FF001 to experience the full spectrum of what Further Future has to offer.
