Phuture Biography (Wikipedia)

Phuture is an American, Chicago-based acid-house group of electronic musicians, founded in 1985 by Spanky, DJ Pierre and Herb J. The group's seminal 12-minute track "Acid Tracks" (1987) is widely considered the first-ever acid house record.

"Acid Tracks" featured characteristic bass lines from the Roland TB-303 bass synthesizer—which was manipulated to produce resonant and squelchy sounds uncharacteristic for a bass guitar it was designed to emulate. The track rose to popularity at DJ Ron Hardy's Music Box club in Chicago and has since been re-pressed many times.

Phuture released a number of early electonic tracks now considered classics of the genre, usually as 12-inch vinyl maxi singles.

The music the group produces is dark and monotonous in nature. Many tracks are very long, even passing the 10-minute mark (such as "Acid Tracks"). Sparse lyrics are occasionally related to drugs, such as the lyrics of "Your Only Friend" (1987), which describe cocaine addiction, or a simple chant, such as on "Spirit" (1994).
