About Back to the Phuture
Tomorrow is Today
Back To The Phuture began life in 2009 as a radio show on BBC 6 Music created by Wall Of Sound founder Mark Jones. The acclaimed programme connects the dots between synth pioneers and today’s electronic music artists. Back To The Phuture orchestrated the ground breaking collaborative recording sessions between La Roux and Heaven 17 the most requested musical event ever on BBC iPlayer with over one million views.
Radio guests have included Phil Oakey of The Human League, Gary Numan, Daniel Miller of Mute Records, Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware, Steve Strange of Visage, August Darnell of Kid Creole and the Coconuts, OMD, John Foxx, acclaimed NYC producer Arthur Baker and Blancmange.
"I get to ask the original creators the questions I’ve always wanted to know the answers to," says Mark. "What’s more, there are so many new artists who are embracing their synthfluences, Back to the Phuture is the platform for bringing them together."
As a natural extension of the 6 Music radio show has come Back To The Phuture concerts, live events, and club nights. These are all based on the idea that combining “new” and “established” artists and DJs creates an amazing attraction which is of great appeal to a very broad audience – literally from 15 to 50.
