We have worked hard to develop our relationships with the gatekeepers of the music industry over the years and have built an enviable contacts database across all areas of the media, both nationally and internationally. We do not work within one genre or niche either, and actually thrive on representing a varied roster of acts and projects.

Futureproof was founded, and is run by, Phil Legg, who has vast experience in the music business as a musician, promotions / label manager plus producer and engineer of multi-platinum chart topping releases. We can offer an unrivalled wealth of experience in guiding artists through the processes of grassroots establishment and mainstream audience crossover.

Read more about Phil

Phil followed his passion for music and moved to London in 1978. The risk paid off and he joined band Essential Logic as part of what Rolling Stone journalist Greil Marcus referred to as ‘Britain’s post punk pop avant-garde’. Playing guitar for the band alongside Lora Logic of X Ray Spex as well as later joining fellow luminaries of the scene The Members, it’s clear that Phil’s credentials as an artist are rooted in the punk movement. One of Rough Trade’s earliest signings in 1979, Essential Logic released their debut seminal album ‘Beat Rhythm News – Waddle Ya Play’ before going on to grace the hallowed stage of John Peel’s show, recording various BBC sessions for him between 1978 & 1981. The band also enjoyed an esteemed live career performing with the likes of Joy Division, Iggy Pop, Teardrop Explodes, Human League, The Pop Group, The Normal, Scritti Politti, The Raincoats and The Slits and establishing a place in punk history.

Following Essential Logic’s demise, Phil switched sides at the recording studio and went on to work with an array of notorious artists as an engineer/producer including Depeche Mode, Terence Trent D’ArbySadeDesreeThe WaterboysThe Rolling StonesBoy George, Erasure and many more.

In the 90s Phil’s remix work was with artists like De La SoulPM DawnLisa Stansfield, Whitney HoustonEternal, had his own composition used on Sony Playstation’s Gran Turismo and even scored music for the documentary ‘Life, Death & Damien Hirst’, used to publicise the Enfant Terrible’s New York show.

In 2000 Phil created Futureproof, launching it as a hugely successful clubnight and later turning it into the highly regarded company it is today. Showcasing its artists in the most fitting environment – whether it be nationally respected venues, London hotspots or something a little more on the edge (like their 2009 ‘Late at Tate’ event for Tate Britain) Futureproof work with up-and-coming bands to see that they reach their full potential.
