Futexture is music for music lovers. Its music written in homage to the boundless majesty of nature, the complexity and strangeness of human relationships, and the ineffable nature of individual experience. It is the merger of tradition and the incalculable future, dancing together on the razor thin edge of now. It is what happens when David Krantz, a North Carolina native and multi instrumentalist, titrates his experience into sound.
David carries his family’s music history into the future (his great grandfather was a composer in Krakow, Poland before WWII and his Aunt is an accomplished opera singer) as he leans heavily on skillful synthetic sound design, reprocessed acoustic sound sources, and crisp production. One of the rare producers who can transcend the typical barriers between electronic dance music and traditional composition, David is at home in a variety of contexts and settings. Spanning the range between heavy bass music and contemplative downtempo, his versatility, depth of expression, and command over detail has earned him accolades from some of the most respected minds in forward thinking electronic music.
David has released music as Futexture through Gravitas Recordings, Bluetech’s Critical Beats, Afro Monk Records, Circuitree Records, LessThanThree, Forward Thinking Sounds, and Kalya Scintilla’s Merkaba records. He lives currently in Asheville, NC.
