MATTN & Futuristic Polar Bears & Olly James reveal “Throne”
The momentum continues to unequivocally build for one of dance music’s leading trios in Futuristic Polar Bears. After receiving widespread support during this year’s Tomorrowland from the likes of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, BlasterJaxx and many others, the British powerhouse is returning with even more fresh music. Just weeks removed from launching their very own imprint CMMD Records on top of a handful of free downloads, the trio is teaming up alongside MATTN and big room house sensation Olly James. Together, MATTN & Futuristic Polar Bears & Olly James join forces to create ‘Throne’, which serves as Futuristic Polar Bears’ second release this summer through Smash The House following their Wolfpack–assisted anthem ‘Derb’.
Initially featured by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike on their Tomorrowland 2018 compilation mix, MATTN & Futuristic Polar Bears & Olly James – ‘Throne’ has built an ample amount of anticipation from fans as festival season continues to wind down.
The mainstage-primed ballad ignites with a thunderous rolling bassline, which feeds into a chorus of whining synths and aggressive beat stutters. Futuristic Polar Bears make their trademark melody immediately known during the first break of ‘Throne’ as they invoke one of their most infectious and intoxicating leads to date.
When it is all said and done, the five artists tie all elements together for a production that DJs will surely seek to include in their live performances for the remainder of 2018.
Less than two weeks ago, Futuristic Polar Bears made a monumental leap in their illustrious career with the debut of their own imprint CMMD Records. The big room house veterans got the launch off to a rapid start as they teamed up with Belgian natives Wolfpack to deliver ‘Moksha’, which currently sits at #14 on Beatport’s Big Room charts in just a matter of weeks. As if that was not enough to have fans excited about the trio’s direction, the guys have gifted a couple of their long-awaited remixes for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike over the past month for ‘Melody’, ‘Ocarina’, most recently, ‘Mammoth’.
Futuristic Polar Bears also completed an ‘Ask Me Anything’ through Reddit to answer countless burning questions from their audience and also ran a competition to give one fan a personal Skype session to discuss with the group anything that was on their mind. With DJ Mag’s Top 100 voting closing out in just a matter of weeks, the trio is adding as much fuel to their fire as humanly possibly for an impressive second half of 2018.
