Future Classic Bands You Should Check

So courtesy of my fiancé, I have been diving into electronic music. She tends to dig Future Classic (the label) acts and these are the ones I've really enjoyed so far.

From the nail biting introduction of "Alpha" to the mellow wobble of "Epsilon," HWLS flow through a gamut of sounds. The teetering glitches of insanity, piano laden beats with glimmering synth lines and smooth expansive soundscapes show an eclectic range of styles. EP02 serves as a appetizer of what's to come and bolsters enough energy and edge to entice not only the critics but the average listener as well.

Jonti embrace the delicate and entrancing sound of nature while providing sprinkles of jazzy/classical instrumentals, twinkly electronic flourishes and spacey vocalizations. The result is a finely crafted piece of music to sit back and let wash over you, much like the cover image would suggest.
The Sound of Trees Falling on People

Speaking of kicking back your chair, Seekae produce some of the most charming beats that won't smash you over the head but rather gently caress with sounds ranging anywhere from acoustics to 8bit tinged beats that always retain their ambient nature without ever lulling you to sleep.
Always EP

[Indie/Dream Pop]
Probably the most vocally driven band of the mix, Panama are masters of building up their sound by continually peeling back to reveal new elements as each track wanders on. Whether it be through soulful piano like in the title track, fluctuating synth beats like in "Destroyer" or jazzy saxophone like in the bonus track "Strange Feeling," there's always an unexpected element interpolating as the EP soars through you.
5World Champion
Avocado Galaxy

Come with World Champion on a ride of cosmic proportions, as they blend the realms of psychedelic euphoria with a taste of funk. The lush vocals, mellow bass, electronic flourishes, echoing guitar melodies and quick drum patterns with ensnare you into the album's vortex.
6Jagwar Ma

Howlin is a more upbeat psychedelic outing laced with some indie rock mannerisms. Jagwar Ma successfully meld catchiness, experimentation and a variation of sounds that vary from club oriented dance beats to indie spiced psychedelic jams.
