Hot on the heels of our buddy Girl Talk, over-the-top 80s mashup upstarts FUTURECOP! make their area debut at the Pike Room. Futurecop!, a DJ/production duo from England, aims to revive the spirit of 80s culture in their own, unique way. Many artists have revisited 80s music and fashion to some extent, but Futurecop! has touched upon a neglected area: the world of the epic, often-mystical 80s films, and the often dance-pop-oriented melodies that are suited for their soundtracks. Their original tracks are instrumentals, performed in earnest despite their obvious synth sounds. PARTYCMYK sez: "Futurecop! is a guy called manzur iqbal… i think thats him here. He started off a year or too ago with absolutely no idea how to produce tracks. Thats right zip, nada. Believe that? Nah me neither but hey the hype goes on. Now the guy is dropping bonafied nu disco gems. Nasa is a fun, futuristic dancefloor laser beam. The synths skip across the speakers like little bubbles in a glass of iced perrier. Wow it must be hot cause this tracks gone straight to my head… wtf am i on about. Just listen you’ll soon find out."

With THEOPHILIUS LONDON.
