about

The third instalment in the Future Bubblers compilation series is set for release on October 11th. The programme, started by Brownswood founder and 6 Music broadcaster Gilles Peterson has garnered a reputation of being at the forefront of cutting-edge music, having previously released tunes by artists such as Yazmin Lacey & Skinny Pelembe.

Serving as both a new music discovery platform and a mentoring scheme - Future Bubblers aims to support left-field music by offering advice and practical support to the acts hand-picked from the multitude of applications received. Future Bubblers 3.0 continues the tradition of wonky electronica, soulful rhythms and jazz infused bops.

From the Mancunian twang of Blind MIC to the free-flowing improvised hip-hop of NuTribe, the velvety vocals of Shunaji to the sultry r'n'b tinged Aaliyah Esprit - this new generation of creative and progressive musicians here showcase their individual skill - as well as the unifying and supportive 'extended family' ethos that comes from working as part of Future Bubblers.

Future Bubblers has been running since 2014, artists are chosen through an open application process each year. They’re paired with a mentor from the music industry who, along with the Future Bubblers team, develop these artists. This album is focused on the ten artists from Year 3.

Track Name: Blind MIC - Really On
Feel like I'm really on, really on
rare sound 1 in a million, million
they come around cos they see we on hear we on don't call me I'm already gone, really gone
spent a year on a silly one, really though, but now I'm back nobody getting near me though
heart must have really froze , really cold, still any time I touch jazz, really gold
I write chords , drop bars on it, Jimmy hit it with harmonics if I said it then I put my heart on it,

Feeling like I'm really on, really back , I aint listening to the chitter- chat , this and that ,
feel like I really been to hell and back, tell her that, a perfect thing can't ever last
just tryna be a better man one chance, play hard to get we can do that dance,
I dont wanna stay the night and then dash cos I been thinking bout my future and my past


Tripping across the globe, been in them different zones, remember you with me there, theres nowhere that we couldn't go
and I give it all away, I let my demons grow, I let my weakness show, I thought that you ought to know
I'm partying after shows, feel like I can't go home, but I still love this shit,
im not too old but I'm grown, and I can't walk away, still making music dough, don't wanna abuse it though
I gotta take it slow
Track Name: Nutribe - Sittin On Me Step
Sitting on my step, watching the street go by x3
Or looking out the window , when it’s cold outside ...
Im eating with the NU
Im sleeping with the NU
Im keeping with the NU
and you Im beating with the NU,
Im loyal to the NU
Im never cheating with the NU
coz’ over obstacles I be leaping with the NU,
Suit and tie man I be defeating with the NU
coz’ my energy be increasing with the NU
Yes my stress be decreasing with the NU
and then tension be releasing with the NU,
So bliss and nice I be feeling with the NU
Through the sounds waves I be healing with the NU
many fruit and veg I be peeling with the NU
and many dub plates i be wheeling with the NU,
Yes I be communicating with the NU
to many people man a be relating with the NU
I keep it real man a never faking with the NU
Im balancing my giving and my taking with the NU
and I’m just...
Sitting on my step, watching the street go by x3
Or looking out the window , when it’s cold outside ...
riddim onda track make you wonder,

Move smooth like caaats, rimshots

An auntie, a sister, a mother
That I’m one smooooth brother
....Sitting on my step, watching the street go by x3
Or looking out the window , when it’s cold outside ...
Track Name: Aaliyah Esprit - Mind Control
exotic with the melodies
flow caress your mind
run up on ya like a penalty please don’t cross that line
the music is the remedy
i don’t have enough time
sound of the symphony

cant stop me
cant hold me
cant hold me down

cant stop me
cant hold me
cant hold me down

dont care if nobody is here now
this musics running through my mind
don’t care cause i just wannar live now
this musics all thats on my mind

Feeling pretty lost in time
my mind is running free
Eyes closed but I’m safe inside, music has a hold on me
the beat is the remedy
so happy that I’m here
The sound is a symphony

cant stop me
cant hold me
cant hold me down

cant stop me
cant hold me
cant hold me down

don’t care if nobody is here now
this musics running through my mind
don’t care cause i just wannar live now
this musics all thats on my mind
Track Name: Shunaji - Nighthawks (Acoustic Version)
‘Nighthawks’ is the result of something unforeseen in Shunaji’s creative process. Almost two years into her musical journey, Shunaji has never recorded herself singing her own lyrics before. She has been acclaimed as a producer, an MC and a songwriter but never wandered outside her comfort zone as a singer. ‘Nighthawks’ brings a different perspective to a well-rounded artist.

After nine months in the works, 'Nighthawks’ premieres as an introduction to Shunaji’s sophomore project ‘Blue Melon’. ‘Nighthawks’ is inspired by the vocals of 70s Italian singers like Mina and Patty Pravo, with the velveted yet coarse textures of Joan Baez and Patti Smith. The beat is extracted from the relentless drums of Sascha Create (Brother’s Testament) and flows smoothly with Marla Mbemba’s bass line (Georgia Morgan Turner, Yazmin Lacey). Shunaji’s soundscapes are a signature for the artist’s genre-bending sound, as seen in her debut ‘Midnight Movie’.

Distancing herself from musical convention, Shunaji offers an experimental yet unexpectedly familiar track, with hypnotic and aphrodisiac features. The hook, “the night denied, the night denied, the night...” is the emblem of desire, loss, lust and incertitude. Accompanied by the enchanting visuals of Director Guen Murroni, ‘Nighthawks’ is a complete work of art, boasting the effectiveness of multimedia and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
lyrics
I would try something so refined
To help me clear my mind
If I can sing, I can rhyme
If I can sing, I can rhyme...

I was born into a special place
Where you and, you and I...
And I would never say goodbye...

The night, denied
The night, denied
The night, denied
I can’t deny the things I felt that night!

Lost in the night I am like neon lights across the city,
They see the talent, say they want it, say it's very pretty,
Investigate the hateful eight, get in the nitty gritty,
Famously too witty, Princess Solo Space Committee,
You stay with me, imagine things so simply,
Ferment myself like kimchi, I am lit but done so dimly,
Sincerely must confess, I've been damned but I stay bless,
Nevermind my mind's a mess I'm the messiah unlike the rest,
Live to aspire to the best - you're upset, caress the feeling,
I speak to you the truth and offer you spiritual healing,
Shunaji through the ceiling, can't weigh the shit I'm dealing,
The mood is on the move and while it's crude it's always thrilling.
Too keen to be in between and when I'm not I'm the beginning,
I'm the mother to my children, on the road a lonely pilgrim I stay with it,
You got your ticket check my flow cause it's exhibit A, stick to the script
And in the end I pick the final take...

You and I are like the pretty pictures
That I’ve sown in my eyes
Just to see you one more time
I want to see you one last time
Come on!

You are the gracious I would like to be
The places I would love to live
It’s you or me, the narratives
And you intervene if I lick my
When I lick my lips...

The night, denied
The night, denied
The night, denied
I can’t deny the things I felt that night!
Track Name: Ayy - The World Is Yours
Verse 1

This is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
I went from page to stage
At a very young age
Though progress was slow
We still count it these days
Just know I’m proud of you kid
You never gave up
Still doing what you did
And I love that
Perfection takes time & you’re close
Don’t worry bout them guys that’s doing the most It’s gonna get gross (you know)
Don’t be afraid of emotion though
Just ride the wave let the motion flow
Listen to future Ayy boast like woah

You made it now
You made it now
Tell them other young niggas
To stop hatin now
Yo they really thought they’d phase me & break me how? Fam I’ve been a lone wolf in this Wolvo town
I can’t wait till the lights go down
There’s no glamour
Still a normal guy when I’m round the manor
Did I stammer?
Ain’t no celebs here
It’s real clear
They’ll love me when I’m gone
Like my name is Shakespeare

Chorus:

The world is yours yeah Just be patient baby You gone make it baby You gone see it through
The world is yours yeah Just be patient baby You gone make it baby Do what you need to do

Verse 2

Now I do what I want
Never waste money on the yves saint laurent I won’t sell out so I can top the charts
I don’t move cautious
But see I move smart

Of course
Cus when you’re at the top
They all wanna know you off
But see I’m tough as hell
Like a mother fucking Nokia
I grew thick skin
In this business
Keep your circle tight
And you’ll have an endless supply of wisdom

Wish I knew this when I was younger
One day I will be the 8th wonder
Could feel it in my belly like hunger
Now I bring the lightning the bars & the thunder I do everything they said I couldn’t handle

Art of balance when you’ve got you fuckin hands full All these cameras tryna get the right angle
I never get left
The best bet for this gamble

Listen to me ramble
Life might be a shamble
But you’ll pull through it
Like a Britney Spears scandal Look at where you are Ayy Knew you’d get it one day
The world is your oyster Though it might be cliche Listen to it
You can do it
You’re a flower boy
The ground up is how you grew When you reach the top
Don’t be scared of the view And don’t get too stressed
Cus you know what’s for you

Chorus

The world is yours yeah Just be patient baby You gone make it baby You gone see it through
The world is yours yeah Just be patient baby You gone make it baby Do what you need to do
Track Name: Shredy - PROMI53
Can't promise,

At least I was honest.
