We first came across Typesun (not to be confused with Type Sun) after a sneak peek at the Futureboogie:10 Compilation (which you can stream here). It’s a strong collection from some of Bristol’s best-known producers, but the real standout was the opener, Typesun’s Last Home. James Ladd’s rhythmic guitar instantly draws comparisons to Dave Harrington, one half of Nicolas Jaar’s sideproject Darkside, while Gary Aylesbrook’s trumpet adds a nice jazz element to the tight production. The one track is not much to go on but, after speaking to its creator, there seems to be a real sincerity to Typesun’s work and it’s clear that a lot of hours have gone into creating a sound that is really on point. With more releases this year on Futureboogie and 2 Floors Down, we cannot wait to hear more. So go like Typesun’s Facebook and say you knew about him when his fans were still in double digits, because we’re sure they won’t be for long.

Competition: win 2 copies of Futureboogie:10 and 2 tickets to Futureboogie 10th Birthday in London. Competition ends 24 February. Enter here
