It’s fair to say that the Futuristic Polar Bears have had a phenomenal few years. Through their own relentless hard work and outstanding capabilities both in the production studio and behind the decks, the duo have been on an incredible ride and achieved the seemingly unachievable.
With a combined skill set of accomplished DJs, producers and musicians, Rhys and Fran have become global favourites, having destroyed dancefloors over 5 continents in far flung destinations such as the USA & Canada, India, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, China, Jakarta, Malaysia, Holland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, France, Mauritius, Spain and Ibiza with their indisputable energy and dynamic DJ sets. It’s these sets that have earned them shows at the biggest and best venues, including three of the top 10 clubs in the world; Octagon (Seoul), Zouk Singapore and UshuaÏa (Ibiza), as well Ministry of Sound, Amnesia, Marquee, Zouk, Myst, Digital & Avalon also in the top 100.
Recognised for their effervescent Big Room sounds, in the last 18 months alone they’ve had releases on Revealed Recordings, Spinnin’ Records, Wall Recordings, Smash The House, Armada and Ultra and gained consistent chart success with each and every release. Back To Earth became their first Beatport #1 in 2014, followed by a further 20 top 20s a global dancefloor top 20 hit with MATTN & Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike on Smash The House and a #25 US Billboard smash with BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard. It’s not surprising they were placed #40 in Beatport’s ‘Best of 2016 – Progressive House Artist’ & nominated for a Beatport Award for Best Big Room Artist in 2016.
They’ve been championed by the likes of KSHMR, Tiësto, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, R3hab, Sander van Doorn, Firebeatz, Sick Individuals and most notably their label bosses at Smash The House Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. With countless releases under their belt, the Futuristic Polar Bears’ continued their relationship as part of the Smash The House family which saw them play the label’s stages at Tommorowland Brazil & Belgium in recent years as well as their House of Madness residency at Amnesia in Ibiza and their latest stadium show in Scotland. 2018 and beyond looks set to commence an arsenal of unmissable collaborations with Wolfpack, Yves V, MATTN, Diego Miranda, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, and with plenty more in the pipeline including the launch of their brand new label “CMMD Records” cement the Polar Bears as one of the most exciting production outfits in the industry right now.
The duo’s thirst for music doesn’t stop there – their cutting-edge Global Radio Show dominates the digital airwaves, going out to over a 5 million listeners in 42 countries across the world every single Month.
With a packed release schedule and a tour diary crammed with worldwide club and festival dates, there’ll definitely be no state of hibernation anytime soon for these Bears…
