If you want a good introduction to the future funk that the kids are grooving to these days, then a good place to start is Neoncity Cruise, a newly released (and free) compilation by Hong Kong’s Neoncity Records. The future funk primer kicks off with a track by Macross 82 – 99 (arguably my favorite future funk producer), and also includes tracks by Android52, Future Girlfriend, and Tanuki (who gets bonus points for reworking Mariya Takeuchi’s “Plastic Love”).
