So apparently, a few dudes from Glasgow—who happen to be buds with the LuckyMe gang—got together to start a music blog, which, they say, "[is] built on a shared love for strange electronic music, new technologies, gadgets and Chris Morris." A large number of well-regarded posts later, and the burgeoning music hub, called Phuturelabs, has decided to start a record label. For the first release, Phuturelabs is dropping a two-song offering from elusive UK producer Wira, one track of which we've got here. A-side tune "Vloeitjes" is a shuffling number full of undulating low-frequency, hollow percussion sounds, and a bounce uncharacteristic of such a moody piece of dance music. You can snag this production and its companion piece, "Playground," in 320kpbs MP3 format from the Phuturelabs website on September 13.
