Welcome to Jointhefuture.net. It’s the online home of Join The Future, a project from journalist and author Matt Anniss to document forgotten or overlooked aspects of electronic music and club culture. The first phase of the project focuses on Bleep & Bass (otherwise known as Bleep techno). So far this has included a critically acclaimed book on Velocity Press, a compilation album and a series of events featuring a mixture of talks, DJ sets and (more occasionally) live performances. Over time, more content will be added to Jointhefuture.net, some of it on Bleep & Bass, and some on other aspects of electronic music culture (both contemporary and historic).

If you have any questions, would like to discuss a brand partnership, please get in touch via our contact page.
