The Future Bubblers team are excited to announce the opening of next years application process. Taking place between Friday 5th July – Friday 10th September 2021, the Gilles Peterson backed talent discovery and artist development scheme open their doors to any unsigned artists in England to apply. Supported by Arts Council England, the aim is to develop talent with roots in underground, left-field and alternative music.
Each year the artists will be paired with a supportive industry mentor who is tailored to their individual needs and from there, the journey begins. Each Bubbler will receive a number of opportunities that will ideally set them up professionally. The venture offers; one-to-one production workshops from music software company, Ableton, performances at live Future Bubblers showcases, recording live sessions from the iconic Brownswood basement, professional press shots and beyond the year, long-term support throughout their career.
Previous years’ candidates include Nottingham grime MC Snowy; soulful, stripped back vocalist Yazmin Lacey; Hull’s sample-heavy experimenter Revenu, and the stark, rhythmic incursions of producer Kayla Painter. Current & past participants of Future Bubblers have achieved notable successes. Yazmin Lacey has been profiled in The Observer, performed on COLORS Berlin, had her own UK tour, and signed a record deal with independent label First Word. Kayla Painter has been profiled in CRACK Magazine and had her new single supported on Amazing Radio, Bandcamp and BBC Introducing. Skinny Pelembe has signed to Brownswood, had his new single supported heavily on 6 Music. Not forgetting Forest Law who was signed to Brownswood where he recently released his debut EP.
Submissions for new candidates are open from Friday 5th July – Friday 10th September 2021. Prospective candidates can enter their submission by heading to futurebubblers.com. For more information on Future Bubblers, please visit: Website Instagram Spotify Facebook
