It’s fair to say that the Futuristic Polar Bears
have had a phenomenal few years.
With a combined skill set of accomplished DJs, producers and musicians, Luke, Rhys and Fran have become global favourites as the Futuristic Polar Bears. They’ve destroyed dancefloors in far flung destinations such as North America, India, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, China, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Holland, Italy, Kazakhstan and Ibiza with their indisputable energy and dynamic DJ sets, and it’s these sets that have earned them shows at the biggest and best venues, including Tomorrowland Brazil, Amnesia Ibiza and four of the top 10 clubs in the world; Octagon (Seoul), Zouk Singapore, BCM (Mallorca) and UshuaÏa (Ibiza), as well Ministry of Sound, Marquee and Zouk KL also in the top 50.
Recognised for their effervescent progressive house sounds, 2016 was something of a game changer for the group. Having already achieved a prestigious Beatport #1 with ‘Back To Earth’, this was knocked out of the park by the summer smash hit ‘Café Del Mar 2016’ on Smash The House; now licensed around the world, the track has racked up over 3.2 million plays on Spotify, spent 72 days on the Beatport charts and over 250,000 Shazams. Add to that releases on Revealed Recordings, Spinnin’ Records, Wall Recordings, Armada and Harem, and it’s no surprise to learn that they have racked up 69 releases to hit the Beatport Top 100.
They’ve been championed by the likes of KSHMR, Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Dyro, R3hab, Sander van Doorn, Firebeatz, Sick Individuals and most notably Hardwell. With several releases on his imprint under their belt, the Futuristic Polar Bears’ continued relationship as part of the Revealed Recordings family saw them play the label’s stage at Creamfields, taking over the decks from Hardwell himself following his set. An arsenal of unmissable collaborations with Danny Howard, Sultan + Shepard, Wolfpack, MATTN and Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, and with plenty more in the pipeline cement the Futuristic Polar Bears as one of the most exciting production outfits in the industry right now.
