  Futurepop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Futurepop is a recently-emerging electronic dance music genre, an outgrowth of electronic body music incorporating influences from synth pop (such as song structure and vocal style) and trance (uplifting, grandiose and arpeggiated synthesizer melodies).
In recent years the basic futurepop concept has been expanded upon in various ways, with bands like Pride and Fall, mind.in.a.box and Rotersand pushing the trance aspect of the genre, while others such as XPQ-21 have incorporated further influences from industrial and synthpop to create their own brand of futurepop music.
Futurepop music is popular in the cyber, goth and general alternative electronic scenes.

A bad decision was made, though, in the choice of opening track, nebula-h's 'h (single h)' isn't a bad dancey futurepop track, but it pales in comparison with the massive 'twilight zone', which follows it.

Futurepop is all over the place and in my opinion someone should do something about it.
The problem is that futurepop is not a style, it has become a trend, a fashionable trend.

 Painbastard: Skin On Fire - Release Music Magazine review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Alex P has created an interesting blend of body and futurepop, providing the music with an individual touch.
It might be because Alex P has broadened the musical pallet and dares to mix old body-beats with futurepop tunes.
It is one of the most poppy songs on the album, but I really like the rhythms that Alex has combined with typical futurepop tunes and his seductive voice.

 Nilaihah Records - NamNamBulu Reviews
This is the crowning glory, the invigoration of the coming of something old and something new surely to join such acts as Covenant and VNV Nation as the heads of their field.
EBM has a lot of its origins in synthpop, hence VNV Nation's Ronan Harris coining the term "futurepop." A lot of bands remain true to the slightly poppy side of EBM, showing their respect to the now floundering genre of synthpop.
The real treat of the album is the packet of new songs, some of which are intelligently built synthetic pop, while some seem to struggle with an unnecessary futurepop complex, pulling focus away from the initial song strength and replacing it with long instrumental club parts.

 How To Become A Future Pop Band
Personally, i have met most of the so-called futurepop rock stars that you mentioned, and all of them have been really cool people.
Futurepop has not started playing in McDonalds commercials yet, so it hasn't reached it's intended potential.
To the DJ it was just a mash up of 80s pop like the Eurythmics, electro, house and hard dance, but I swear you could play it next to VNV or 242 in a club and no-one would bat any eyelid (except the I-only-like-what-I-know crowd).

Cashing in on the popularity of the futurepop scene, which mixes elements of classic '80s EBM, synthpop, trance and techno, this double CD set has two of the scene's leaders at the helm of each disc.
Slightly lesser lights from the futurepop scene are here too, Assemblage 23, Icon of Coil, Neuroticfish and the Crüxshadows, who unveil the new dancier sound of their upcoming "Wishfire" with an Apop mix of 'Tears', along with more obscure names like OOMPH!, Slam and Second Decay.
Thankfully, futurepop is as close to the overblown German trance scene as this get, more mainstream sounds are represented by the classy Kosheen, while the nu-electro scene is represented by Felix da Housecat with the bass-thumping original mix of 'Silver screen (Shower scene)', I-F's seminal 'Space Invaders are smoking grass' and Tomcraft's funky 'Overdose'.

 ELECTROMEDA v2.0 - audio_interviews_Ronan Harris of VNV Nation
There is a certain amount of sarcasm about that because ‘certain other labels’ spokespeople were putting down the type of music we did, Futurepop – which incidentally is not what most people think Futurepop is – it’s a word that got totally misused.
J/ For me Futurepop was a term coined by journalists and music execs it was just a marketing ploy to sell more records to create a new genre when there was no need to.
I thought it was very, very funny when I read all these comments on-line about bands from ‘certain other labels’ were telling all the DJ’s on a personal level that Futurepop’s dead and suddenly they sign a band that sound very much like us and everyone says it.

It’s hard to talk about inspiration in a conventional way, as the band members listen to all sorts of musical genres ranging from futurepop, synthpop, techno, electropop, trance, dance, chillout, ambient and new age to heavier stuff like ebm, electro and some melodic pop and hard rock.
The band as such has no intention in copying what has already been made, but try to form their own way of expression.
But prior to the release of their first demo in October ´04 both band members were hoping that this would turn out to be more than just a hobby.

 VNV Nation: Axis, Boston, MA - 06/12/2005
Meanwhile, the form of indie/CMJ rock which gestated in the late 80s and early 90s is the new Big Thing, its Animal Farm appeal a wolf’s disguise as it works desperately to replace an omni-racial, watered-down rap as the darling of Billboard.
Against this backdrop, futurepop veterans VNV Nation took the stage at Axis in Boston this horrifically muggy Sunday evening.
Given VNV Nation’s uncanny ability to touch the heart as adeptly as they do the ears, “futurepop” is the correct label for the band – one need only hear a few lines of Ronan Harris’s smoky Phil Collins/Steve Winwood baritone to see the potential for things much bigger than nightclubs with busted air conditioners.

With difficulty it there to designate a favorite "Homewrecker" belonged surely to it, "LINES" and "Lucky" also, but for me completely clearly in front is "Escort" (has its car besungen there?), its zweistimmige Vocal harmonies was taken over nearly 1:1 by Alphaville's "ton Germany With Love", although I cannot imagine that Mr.
This garnered my interest because it was at least trying to be different than most of the other stuff I had gotten.
On the whole "Earth Rising" is an exciting release; because it delivers varied tracks of classic SynthPoP to FuturePoP and breaks the prejudice that music based on 80s sounds has to sound old-fashioned.

While we all know that futurepop refers to the excellent synth music generated by VNV Nation, Apoptygma Berzerk, Covenant, Assemblage 23 and many legions of followers circa 1998 through present, it should be noted that this album marks the moment the term became meaningful; This was FuturePop.
In summary, this is the definitive and probably still the best FuturePop album; Anyone who loves electronic music will explode with joy upon hearing this.

"Futurepop" is a term created by VNV Nation to describe their music.
BTW, isn't the VNV Nation sound just a more aggressive trance, which in turn is based on house, which is just disco mixed with a TR-909?
