Ricky Potts Sits Down with the Futuristic Polar Bears

When I first heard about the Futuristic Polar Bears… Let’s just say, I didn’t take them too serious. I ignored press releases that came across my desk and waited for the day they would disappear into the sunset. They didn’t. As a matter of fact, they have done the exact opposite and are quickly becoming the hottest name in electronic dance music. Their hit single “Back To Earth” is being released on Revealed Recordings and I can’t stop listening to it.”That release was signed towards the end of last summer and it’s been building hype ever since Hardwell played it at Tomorroworld. We hope expose a few more people to the Polar Bear sound!”

Speaking of Hardwell, they have seen a lot of support from him this year. But have they had a chance to work with him? “We’ve worked directly with his team this year and it’s been an amazing experience to see how the top guys work, everything is done professionally which is really refreshing to see. Hopefully one day we’ll get chance to work with Hardwell directly – I’m sure we’d make a killer record!”

Fatboy Slim, Thomas Gold and Steve Angello have been showing a lot of support for the single “Thundergod.” They worked with Danny Howard on this release. “Danny is a good friend of ours, we share the same passion for music and our tastes are pretty similar. We always love working with Danny and are currently working on the follow up to “Thundergod” at the moment.”

A couple of weeks ago, I sat down with Paul Oakenfold and we talked about Las Vegas and what that city means to dance music. He is one of the forefathers of EDM in Sin City, but the newcomers, like the Futuristic Polar Bears, are starting to get a feel for what it is like to perform in Las Vegas. I asked the guys to discuss dance music in Las Vegas. “The clubs over there are amazing and seem to be bringing in all the big guys, which is definitely helping the scene grow. We’ve heard amazing reports about Hakkasan from a few of our friends who have played there – hopefully we’ll get to visit soon!”

These guys have a bright future ahead of them. I am embarrassed to have ignored them for so long. Now I can’t stop listening to them. The sky is the limit for these guys, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for them. I do know they are working on some new music.

“We’ve got some amazing new music forthcoming on Mutants Records and Harem Records, as well as a couple of new collaborations that you’ll hear about very soon.” The future is bright for the Futuristic Polar Bears.
