About us

Brazen rock outfit, Future Radio, formed and released their debut album, Freedom, in 2020.

The South African based duo consists of songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, Johnny Lategan as well as guitarist and visual artist, Drikus Roets.

They cultivate their signature sound

 by fusing elements of alternative rock, riff rock and punk rock into – what they like to refer to as – future rock. Unlike other rock acts, this forward-thinking band places strong emphasis on visual storytelling. Each song releases as an “episode” complete with visuals and narratives which form part of a season.

Future Radio is currently one of the most exciting rock acts. In only two years, they have amassed many successes. 

Their strong social media presence

of over 21K followers on Instagram alone, is evidence that their vision resonates with both listeners and industry tastemakers alike. Their 2022 release, Something To Believe In, has secured spots on the Spotify SA Rock Essential and Apple Music’s New in Rock playlists. The song also made waves across charts in Australia, the USA and South Africa, and reached #13 on the MixFm SA Top 40 chart. Their creative, engaging content granted them rave reviews across the globe and their diverse sound defies categorisation while delivering a blend of creative expression, progressive music, and modern flair.

This exhilarating band commands attention with every turn since establishing themselves as multidimensional artists.

Their high-energy and charged live shows cement their explosive presence and bring life to the stage.

The band’s performance style is elevated, beguiling and reflects their contagious passion. Future Radio was selected as one of the 22 acts, out of 300 applicants, to perform at the annual Fête de la Musique Joburg 2022. With no sign of slowing down, the future looks bright for this hard-working band.
