Earlier this week, UK producers, Futurecop!, released their much anticipated music video for “The Only Way.” Starring members of the Parks and Recreations cast, as well as Jon Lajoie from the hit series “The League,” the video tells the comedic story of a boy who falls in love with a mannequin. A love story behind a backdrop of unicorns, miniature golf, and 1980′s visuals is the perfect compliment for the synth-heavy and dream-inducing melodies of Futurecop!.

If you were born in the 80s (or even if you weren’t), you know that there is a certain sound and imagery that was established throughout the arts during the decade that some came to hate, but many, including myself, learned to love. Cheesey vocals, spacey synthesizers, and an intangible sense of a fantastic, imaginative force defined music and movies during the era, and now, the duo from England known as Futurecop! is bringing it all back in the 21st century with 13 original productions that will make up the soundtrack to The Movie — an audio/video project from the pair of musicians. By re-inventing their influences of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, unicorns, and childhood dreams, Futurecop! will be breaking the mold in 2012 with this release on Kiez Beats Records. For now, please enjoy these 2 free originals off of the album release, and make sure to check in over at Kiez Beats for more info on the release date.

From the early to mid-2000s, if you saw a track that had the words “featuring Erlend Øye” as part of the track name, you knew you were in for a treat. Erlend Øye‘s silky smooth voice made him a favorite amongst many artists to collaborate with, including Röyksopp, Phonique, Feist & DJ Hell. On top of being the go-to guy for an artist in need of a top tier vocal collab, he also had his hands in several personal projects including Kings of Convenience & The Whitest Boy Alive. Erlend Øye has been on sabbatical over the last few years and since then, one man has proven to be a worthy successor as The Man With The Golden Touch: Theophilus London.
In baseball, he’s a five-tool player. In basketball he’s a triple double threat. No matter what genre he’s lyrically slicin’ & dicin’, Theophilus London gets the job done in the coolest way possible. He’ll take a dreamwave track from Futurecop! & make it dreamier. He’ll take an electro-sex song from Jimmy Edgar & make it electric. And just when you think a tune by Ellie Goulding can’t get any better, he makes a pop tune POP.
His new single, “Last Name London”, is the first track off his highly anticipated debut LP “Timez Are Weird These Days” (Out July 19th). Ungh.
On February 14th, L.A. originals, Binary, released “Dreams” – the much anticipated collaboration between Futurecop! and Binary’s own Keenhouse. Yesterday we featured the original track on our Waves ≠ Raves Vol. 6 and today we are having a go at the outstanding trio of remixes.
On “Dreams”, Keenhouse’s lyrics deal with hope in a grown up world and are coupled with Futurecop’s signature feel-good melodies, all of which make for some super solid power pop. Ride The Universe, ODahl & Show Your Shoe all up the ante with their futuristically funky+soulful remixes (PrinceWave?), each taking the track to new levels.
For Futurecop! + Binary in 2011, UP, indeed, is the only way.
