FEATURING: DANNY HOWARD / FUTURISTIC POLARBEARS + HOST OF SCOTTISH TALENT
As one of the most high profile DJs in the country today, you can’t deny that the Danny Howard story has been nothing short of monumental since he won that competition all the way back in 2011.
With 1.8 million people now tuning in to his Dance Anthems show on BBC Radio 1 every weekend, a weekly show on US satellite station SiriusXM, a monthly podcast pumped into the cabins of hundreds of British Airways flights all over the world and a monthly column in one of the world’s biggest music publications, DJ Mag – Danny Howard is certainly not a man who is hiding away in the shadows.
The last few years have seen Danny explode to the forefront of dance music as we know it and the list of legendary venues that have experienced Danny Howard’s show-stopping sets reads like an encyclopedia of dance floor royalty: Global gathering; Gatecrasher; Ministry of Sound; Pacha NYC; Creamfields; the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas; Spinnin’ and Perfecto parties in Miami – not to mention a weekly residency at Pacha in Ibiza and regular spots on the line ups of Amnesia, Privilege and Space.
But move to the studio and Danny’s production talents are equally impressive. Signed to Spinnin’ Records with over 20 releases to his name and over a million online plays, Danny has been a regular feature on the Beatport charts with tracks like Spire, MUG and Apex, has worked with legendary figures like Paul Oakenfold and hit the US Billboard top 20 with the Futuristic Polar Bears. Couple this with 45,000 Ministry of Sound Clubbers Guide albums sold, an iTunes #1 with his BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems Compilation that shifted 75,000 units and a #1 iTunes Podcast that has seen Danny cemented as one of the country’s most respected taste-makers.
Launched late in 2013, his UK-focused Nothing Else Matters brand has played host to the likes of Eddie Halliwell, Mark Knight, Disclosure and Pete Tong at sell-out shows in some of the country’s top venues including Ministry of Sound in London and a stage at the North West’s biggest indoor festival, Blackpool Rocks. With the brand growing in strength and numbers with every event, Danny Howard is determined to succeed in his mission to promote British music as the best in the world.
If you’re exhausted reading all this, imagine how Danny feels – there’s no doubt though that this is only beginning and as the whole world watches on, the Danny Howard story continues to unfold.
Did they come from the future or from outer space? Nobody knows for sure, but what we do know is that if there is ever living proof of a collective who have worked their paws off to achieve the seemingly unachievable, it’s the Futuristic Polar Bears.
Consider this, 2014 began with the world’s #1 DJ – Hardwell – name-dropping the Polar Bears with an exclusive premiere of their new track which he has been championing in every set since he played it at TomorrowWorld to 60,000 revellers, the track which he has signed to his label and the track which will undoubtedly kickstart the most successful year to date for the Futuristic Polar Bears.
Follow this up with an unstoppable track signed to John Dahlback’s Mutants label, a #34 US Billboard smash in ‘Thundergod’ produced with BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard and full support from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Michael Woods, Thomas Gold, Steve Angello and DJ Sultan & Ned Shepherd, and it’s plain to see why the sound of the Futuristic Polar Bears has become synonymous with pushing the boundaries of the genre.
With no corner of the globe untouched by the Polar Bear sound, the guys have taken their undisputable energy to destroy dancefloors and soundsystems across Russia, Thailand, Singapore, Mexico, India and South Korea alongside the likes of Martin Garrix, Kim Fai, Danny Howard, EDX, Tocasdisco and Julian Jordan.
Couple the live sound with the magic that the Polar Bears are known for in the studio, pushing out massive releases on Revealed, Mutants, Provoke, Carrillo, Strictly Rhythm, Perfecto, Subliminal, Pinkstar and Harem, not forgetting a cutting-edge Global Radio Show that now goes out to over a million listeners in 42 countries across the world each week, all backed up by guest mixes from today’s biggest DJs – the Futuristic Polar Bears are on a mission to defy the laws of science and dominate the industry.
With a craft that has been perfected through their own relentless hard work, the Futuristic Polar Bears show no sign of slowing down and with the strength of the year’s start, 2014 looks set to be, without doubt, the year of the Polar Bear.
