Future Brown is the international all-star producer team of Fatima Al Qadiri, Lit City Trax’s J-Cush, and Nguzunguzu’s Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda. Together, they make polyglot, genre-bending beat music that draws on dance, rap, R&B, dancehall, grime, and bass music. But somehow it never sounds slapped-together; their sound comes together as one blinking, glittering whole. On their self-titled debut album, Future Brown have put together a masterfully-curated cast of collaborators, and we’ve already posted “Talkin Bandz,” with Shawwna and DJ Victoriouz, “Vernáculo,” with Maluca, and “Room 302,” with Tink. The album also features appearances from Kelela, Sicko Mobb, Ian Isaiah, Tim Vocals, and others. Stream the whole thing right now at NPR.
Future Brown is out 2/24/2015 on Warp.
