Waifs & Strays deliver a strong remix of Future Self & Jamie Jamal collaboration


Following a string of strong releases and support from BBC Introducing dance, Future Self is joined by Bristol Based vocalist Jamie Jamal and Waifs & Strays for the 5th release on Self Control Records. Representing a collaboration that brings together like-minded creatives who shared the same passion and had something they needed to share after a year of lockdown.

Future Self is the pseudonym of Jan Warner, a Swedish-born music producer who has been based in the musical haven of Bristol, UK for the last decade. His relationship with music can be traced back to his childhood days and Sweden’s policy of giving every child the opportunity for free music lessons.

The original track features deep and heavy synth work, an almost progressive edge to its arrangement which walks the line between more classic sounds and thoroughly modern ideas. Combining a club-ready rhythmic backbone that will get any room moving and heavy melodics that works with Jamie’s stand out vocals to create a dark but inviting mix of vibes.

Waifs & Strays came on board to provide their usual top class re-imagination of the track, a sure fire Tech House monster that works with the synthy, melodic nature of the original to hit it out of the park.

Releasing this July on Self Control Records, this record is a new high water mark for the label and a sign of things to come. We premiere the Waifs & Strays remix on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
