Monday 3rd May 9.00pm-12.00midnight BBC 6 MUSIC Electronic music guru and Wall Of Sound label boss Mark Jones hosts a special bank holiday edition of his BACK TO THE PHUTURE radio show on BBC 6 Music, celebrating the Mutant Disco with special guest Kid Creole front man August Darnell. BACK TO THE PHUTURE began life last year as a series of shows on the station that linked the synth pioneers of the late 70's and 80's with today's new breed of electro-pop artists. The show has already helped bring together the likes of La Roux and Heaven 17 and Gary Numan and Little Boots for two special sessions at BBC Maida Vale studios, which generated a red button audience of 1.3 million viewers a record for a music link. Mark continues to explore the best in electronic pop old and new. In this Bank Holiday special Mark explores Mutant Disco - “ the Mutant sound is where all the sonics collided. Funk, Beats, Electro, Hip Hop, and just about everything else. Before these sounds if you couldn’t dance to funk, soul and disco you were lost on the edge of the dance floor wondering why, who and how things worked and trying to nod approvingly. Who? And how? Mutant Disco sounds opened the door to the floor……” Or in the words of Kid Creole “eat life or it will eat you! Music is love. Love is life. Devour it or suffer the consequences!” Back to the Phuture will also be appearing at numerous festivals this summer including hosting the opening night at Bestival on the 9th September with a line up that includes Heaven 17, Kids on Bridges, a La Roux DJ set, Blancmange and the hotly tipped new comers Villa Nah.
