  • Phive Star Phat-ness

    I liken the release of Phutureprimitive’s first full length, ‘Sub Conscious’, and my subsequent digestion of the aural cornucopia therein, to discovering that I was eating all my favorite foods with only half of my taste buds at the ready. Listen, I could go on ALL DAY talking about the massive tracks contained in this project’s first release; like the tribal, time-warping, echo-chambered madness of Elysium, or the tectonic shifting, bass driven, meditative dub of Ritual, or how about the haunting melodies and mind trip castanets in Spanish Fly?? (Pretty much bumped that one for about a year straight if you added up all the playtime) But alas, this isn’t just one man’s walk down memory lane while paying homage to ‘Sub Conscious. It is a celebration of the fact that I now see the (Unfolding? Transformation? Becoming? ) of an amazing talent in the 2013 release entitled ‘Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places, Pt 1’. I’ll admit, a rather girlish chortle escaped my throat upon seeing that I had missed this release from back in April. This, despite the fact that I harbored a modicum of skepticism with the obvious shift in direction and sound that was apparent in the Luminous EP, and full length ‘Kinetic’. Coming off something as groundbreaking as Sub Conscious, it was a little tough to bend my ears to the new method of delivery. Strange that this new release should tie up all the loose ends that were still flapping around inside my cranium after the release of ‘Kinetik’, but again, ‘Sub Conscious’ was a hard habit to break. Now however, I am now fully vested in what I feel Phutureprimitive as a project is aiming for. This new EP has in effect eliminated the previous distinctions I was making, and shuffling all four of these releases is a seamless experience that I thoroughly enjoy without missing a dub step. Solid vocals, dimensional lyrics, SLAMMING dub step inspired programming all sending shivers down my spine with a quickness that is reminiscent of my first hit of ‘Sub Conscious’. If this is indeed Part One of “Darkest Places”, I hope Phutureprimitive finds a deeper, darker place cause I am ready to go further.
  • Quite addicting..

    So far I love all of Phutureprimtive's work. Can't wait for part 2!
  • Will never live up to his first album

    By IamChaoz
    Sub Conscious, I loved that album, so chill and relaxing and I felt like I could just drift away into a lucid dream. This however is not the Phuture I remember from 9 years ago.
  • It's ok album

    By Chase119966
    Phutureprimitive needs do more songs like the kinetic album
  • No

    By Incipius
    Go back to previous albums please.
  • This two stars is given with love...

    I am an electronic music fanatic. That said, this is not a direction I was hoping Phutureprimitive would go. I'd consider their old work electronic, but nothing like this. Kinetik was so powerful and unique. There will never be another record like it; it takes me away. I don't want you guys to succumb to the mainstream electronic sound. I want you to do what you love, but is it really this? I don't know… It's just far from Kinetik which is what I fell in love with. I'm just one fan and my opinion isn't much in the grand scheme of things but please, please go back to that sound.
  • Check it!!

    Vice Magazine would probably give this EP a pukey face but I don't care - Phutureprimitive is an excellent dubstep artist. Dude is making a name for himself with quality production that often features beautiful female vocals. This isn't your typical "wall of sound" dubstep approach... Phutureprim generally builds his tracks on balanced drums and is careful not to overdo it with his wobbles and womps, while still ascertaining his samples firmly within EDM territory. If you enjoyed the 'Kinetik' LP, you will love this - Phutureprimitive stepping his game up even more, with cleaner sequencing and even more technical layering. Additionally, these songs have a "feel good" vibe; it’s almost as if you can hear the artist smiling through his music. Pair that with the prevalent high energy of the EDM genre and you have something really worth purchasing and listening to over and over and over again. ‘Searching For Beauty… Pt. 1’ is dope… Can’t wait for Part 2!
