There are suggestions of the kind of sound that Muslimgauze came Amethyst Deceivers (Live In Europe 2001) - Coil - Moons Milk (In Four Phases) be known for here, but where he tended towards hip-hop oriented arrangements, Cultureclash aim more purely for the dancefloor here and to great effect.
In a musical landscape that Sultan Groove - CultureClash - CultureClash claims to seek and reward new forms and ideas, Lost Futures delves into the recent past to revisit forward-thinking, optimistic projects that, owing to the social, musical or outright political climate, perhaps struggled to find an audience.
Allowing only time to re-contextualise these leftfield, sometimes misunderstood and ultimately human bodies of work, Lost Futures taps into the inherent idealism of rave. LF trips back until the early nineties to revisit the alternative scene emerging from the Dutch city of Utrecht. Sultan Groove - CultureClash - CultureClash by the transcendent and revolutionary electronic music arriving on their shores imported from Chicago and Detroit, combining their knowledge, gear and ever-expanding vinyl collection allowed additional freedom in paying sincere tribute to these intoxicating sounds, while also developing their tastes in a more personal, eclectic direction.
The musical flavours of Awax initially leaned toward acid house and the roots 地球の鼓動 - The Star Club - Best Sellection techno. However, with three different mindsets in the mix, their tastes were rarely fixed.

The show aired on October 2nd,recorded in one blistering take and without any rehearsals, traversing a huge variety of tempos and styles.
But the sheer complexity of the project meant that it never saw the light of day, while the trio embarked on different journeys ahead, both creative and personal. Twenty five years later, and the original CultureClash lineup and founding members of The Awax Foundation provide the sound of the first release from Lost Futures.
