Matthew Puffett's production career began in 1996 with a string of releases on Void Records, under the alias Future Beat Alliance. The name - taken from an Afrika Bambaataa sleeve - was a nod to the early-80s Electro that was his first musical love while growing up in Oxford, but the music bore the unmistakable influence of the UK & Detroit techno scene that had become his obsession. Matt continued to record under the FBA moniker & released music for some of the most respected electronic labels across Europe including Delsin, Rush Hour & Versatile.

Since 2012 Matthew has also been the main Programmer & Engineer for James Lavelle's UNKLE project. Future Beat Alliance’s productions incorporate traces of hip hop – his first musical love – but arrive at a uniquely soulful take on electro and Detroit techno, replete with ecstatic harmonies, mesmeric tones and sci-fi aesthetics.
