NEWS: Future Chess Club releases new EP, ‘Help! I’m Lost…’

Berlin based producer Future Chess Club has released his new EP ‘Help! I’m Lost…‘ via Headroom Records. Exploring a range of tasteful electronic sounds that combine with easy going house beats and vocal samples, the new EP stands as a powerful work of art from the up and coming producer. His music is a result of his hard work and dedication towards making music from a young age, after being considered ‘a weirdo’ in his early school years. The new EP comes following the success of his previous singles ‘Get You High’ and ‘Be With You’.

The four track EP has lots to offer, and expresses a forward thinking production style of house beats which you would expect to find on a Jamie XX or Bonobo track. Speaking on the aim and thought processes behind ‘Help! I’m Lost’ Future Chess Club writes “I like the idea that electronic music has meaning, if I can add a message to my music even if I’m just a producer, and if this message can touch people, it’s a win”. His most recent release, ‘Like You’ is a single which demonstrates the expression of a generation – its mistakes, behaviours and the search for a better future.

Future Chess Club kicks the EP off with ‘Happy‘, which sets the tone perfectly, with a grooving bassline, funky-house drum beat and well thought through production techniques. The opening track comes as a prime example of what’s to come – an EP of melodies, rhythms and vocal samples which places your mind in a thinking state. The second track, ‘Be With You’ has a glitchy yet groovy chorus that’s peppered with a luscious swing beat. Synths, drums, impeccable production techniques and vocals are the backbones of this nostalgia infused dance EP. ‘Like You‘ is a single which demonstrates the expression of a generation – its mistakes, behaviours and the search for a better future. 

Speaking on the new EP, he writes “I always felt different, in my own bubble, Future Chess Club for me was a way to share my feelings and emotions without showing who I really am. When I was younger I was part of a Chess Club and this was a really safe place for me, where I met people like me who became my friends. With this project I want to create a place where people can discuss, share their feelings and collaborate.”

“Help! I’m Lost…” is out on all streaming platforms now.
