Phutureprimitive ( is the moniker of Northwest producer and song writer Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear……a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination with music, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation…and Phutureprimitive was born.

Phutureprimitive music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body. Despite electronic music’s tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album release of “Sub Conscious” on Waveform Records, which has managed to increase in sales since its release in 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors.

    Shame he hasn't followed up kinetik with anything that has struck me particularly.

    lol@ people hating on his new stuff. Kinetic = one of the best electronic releases from the '10s.

    Why have I not heard 'Sub Conscious' until now? Amazing. Right up there with Possford and Ott in terms of quality psy-chill. Seems his recent stuff isn't so hot. Oh well. Happy to add Sub Conscious to my "best psy chill" playlist. :)

    please make another Sub Conscious before your main tags become dubstep and you lose all of your good fans... Also his latest album is technically classed as brostep (more wubs and over-the-top bass, generally bad sounding).

    This shit is so awesome. Both albums. @TheLastNagual - Try Ott's albums, and especially the Hallucinogen in Dub album he did
