Bay Area, CA. 2014- After years of working together, Jake Nochimow (EAR MONSTER), Zach Rubin-Rattet (Scissorman) and Nick Ashby (artist name – Tommy Rick) decided to form the music production and artist development company, MODERN FUTURE. Jake came in with a background as a producer/audio engineer/drummer and multi-instrumentalist. Zach is a guitarist and also a producer/audio engineer and multi-instrumentalist. In addition he is an expert in digital media. Nick came to the table as a vocalist, producer, video editor and social media expert. All three guys wear several different hats while meeting their customer’s needs. The primary focus of MODERN FUTURE is to make the best music they possibly can, as well as to help their clients succeed in today’s constantly shifting music industry. MODERN FUTURE stays ahead of the musical trends, anticipating the next big sound.
Inspired by their passion for music, Jake, Zach and Nick decided they wanted to spend their time doing what they love. “Really, it’s how we’d be spending our time anyways even if we hadn’t founded this company,” Jake stated. “The fact that we made a go of it is something we’re continually grateful for.” The main goal for this driven trio is to keep this business alive, have fun and to continually work with and build with exciting new talent.
Recently, MODERN FUTURE produced and mixed the opening and closing tracks “Turn da Beat Up” and “Mo Azz” for Big Freedia’s debut album Just Be Free. Big Freedia’s album has already generated buzz in Rolling Stone, FUSE, USA Today, Pitchfork, SPIN, and TIME, as well as across the social media platform. The guys of MODERN FUTURE stated Producer Thomas McElroy (En Vogue, Madonna), “reached out to us and offered us a chance to work with him on a record. We hit it off and ultimately ended up working at his studio, FM Recorders. Big Freedia really liked our work. We did a lot of tracks for Season One of Big Freedia’s reality T.V. show, Queen of Bounce.” With the second season starting, MODERN FUTURE has placed even more tracks on the series. The show, Queen of Bounce airs 11/10 Central, Wednesdays on FUSE.
Working on Big Freedia’s album and reality series is just a dent in what MODERN FUTURE has done and plans to accomplish; with other recent achievements including remixing for OMD and The Wombats and collaborating with Oakland based producer/rapper DJ Ammbush and DJ Touré of The Hieroglyphics. They find no task too hard to take on. With future goals of doing music placement for films, MODERN FUTURE is driving hard to exceed the norm. They strongly feel their collective talents are not exclusive to any one type of art. Whatever genre, whatever film score or television soundtrack, these guys get it done and capture the audience’s attention.
MODERN FUTURE prides themselves on a quick turnaround of product without sacrificing quality. They hope to continue making relevant music and establish a presence in the global music industry.
