English electro Duo Futurecop! are unashamed 80’s fetishists taking inspiration from childhood memories of 80’s teen movies, Michael J Fox, Nintendo and Sci-fi cartoons like Transformers or Thundercats. This is then carefully molded with electronic melodies and power synth chords to create pretty unique sounding electro.
Following some exstensive touring they’ve begun work on their debut album and to stave off the boredom they decided to release a fantastic remix album, originally titled The Remixes ♥. It includes work from themselves and the likes of Anoraak & Stephen Falken, Digikid84, Cryptonites, Ooga Booga, and Silicone Project.
The collection is a nice eclectic blend of stylish and slick remixes full of allusions to the 80’s, definitely worth checking out, especially ‘Transformers’ from the elusive Ooga Booga – massive sound, big beats; an instant floor filler.
