Production supergroup Future Brown sign to Warp, announce debut single

Future Brown, the production supergroup of Fatima al Qadiri, NGUZUNGUZU, and J-Cush, have signed to Warp Records and announced their first physical release, Wanna Party / World’s Mine, slated for November 3. The A-side features Chicago rapper/singer Tink (who’s currently working on her Timbaland-produced debut album) and B-side “World’s Mine” brings together Ruff Sqwad members Prince Rapid and Dirty Danger, as well as Roll Deep affiliate Roachee. Both tracks are available on SoundCloud. Pre-order here.

What will brown look like in the future? That question is at the heart of Future Brown’s music, which blends rap, grime, footwork, dancehall, R&B, reggaeton, and more into the most bangin’ of stylistic smudges. Last year, they explored the question at MoMA PS1 during Pitchfork’s multimedia FORMS festival. An answer was posed: Basketball. Yes, as in Basketballs — as in, that nice mahogany orange. I wouldn’t be averse to it.

In addition to the signing and the single, Future Brown have announced three special tour dates, all of which I have carefully inserted into the end of this article so as not to wake it. Be careful with the newly streaming “Wanna Party Remix” featuring New Orleans rapper 3D Na’Tee, though, it’s quite loud.
