FutureType is the brainchild of producer Miles Felix, singer Chris Bruffee, and rapper DJC. Stumbling across a buried cadre of beats produced by Miles years ago, the longtime friends from Montpelier, VT, and Brooklyn were inspired to bring the music to life. Assembling a crew of talented NYC-based musicians, they sought to bridge the gap between dance-inducing DJ-Electronica and animated full band performances. Now, FutureType’s potent sound comes from driving beats laid down by live drums; sharp horn lines; funktastic guitar; soulful vocals; and crisp rapping. Notable gigs include Mercury Lounge, Brooklyn Bowl, DROM, Brooklyn Bazaar, Friends and Lovers, and the legendary underground institution Rubulad.
Members of FutureType have played with, opened for, and recorded with such artists as Snoop Dogg, Talib Kweli, Method Man, Drake, Juvenile, Lil Wayne Melanie Fiona, Common, GURU’s Jazzamataz, Femi Kuti, Capital Cities, Lee Scratch Perry, Stephen Marley, Medeski Martin and Wood, Antibalas, and more.
FutureType has just released their eponymous debut EP on NuFunk Records.A mix of LCD Soundsystem, Chromeo, and Hot Chip, the EP showcases the band’s powerful sound that has taken Brooklyn by storm. Available on all streaming music platforms.
