  • Description Its May 2012, dance music is everywhere. We've seen the amazing Skrillex tearing it up on the dancefloor as though MetalHeads decided to start dancing and moshing. We saw hugely talented Deadmau5 make kids ecstasy again. However as we all know when a genre becomes successful all sorts of overly similar sounding garbage suddenly start appearing (not going to name names), so what is the sound that can stop all this repetitive dance music nonsense?

    A new electronic sound has been slowly emerging over the last couple of years. Since the emergence of acts such as M83 and the huge following to the movie soundtrack `Drive`, this new sound has been described as synthwave, dreamwave, retrowave - all sorts of name however one thing remains its influence and emphasis of vintage synthesisers to create an uplifting, dreamy sound to make people dance - similar to what Daft Punk did in the late 90s.

    Futurecop! started its background 4 years ago creating such music along with the likes of Fear of Tigers, College, Anoraak, Kavinsky - we took what Alan Braxe, Mylo, Daft Punk and Fred Falke did 10 years ago and created a new electronic sound. It`s only now we started seeing the sound making its way into the mainstream, so Futurecop! decided to create a compilation not only with the people who are currently gaining rapid success already with the sound but more importantly all the new young bedroom artists (that we tiresomely searched through the internet to find), such as Worship and Mille, who are also creating similar music, influenced by the same thoughts and ideals.

    I hope this introduces this new electronic sound to people who are new to this genre, new to electronic music, people who are looking for new vibes and those who are sick of how mainstream pop is overkilling electronic music and searching for something new. I hope this compilation hits you in the heart like it has us.

    We Are The Future.
