Biography

Manchester, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

Futurecop! was founded by Manzur Iqbal from Manchester, United Kingdom, in 2007, when he started with absolutely no knowledge about music production and wanted to create a sound inspired by his nostalgia, 80s teen flicks, especially the movies of John Hughes and Sci-fi cartoons like Transformers or Thundercats, to films such as The Sandlot and Mighty Ducks 2. Not caring about being different or trying to be commercial, even though the music might as well be called pop music. Peter Carrol from London teamed up with him and together they are now recreating the atmosphere and vibe of the soundtracks to the best 80s and early 90s movies that never existed.

Internet attention (Fluokids, Hipster Runoff, Discodust, Big Stereo, Discobelle) gained Futurecop! followers, and an EP Release with Southern Fried and IHEARTCOMIX along with support from scenestars like Diplo, Crystal Castles and the late DJ Am boosted the group. Fans ultimately clamored for their performances worldwide, including shows at Miami WMC 2009, SXSW 2009, Pleskin Festival 2010 and The Big Chill Festival 2009. Remixes of their popular tracks “N.A.S.A” and “Transformers,” including a mix by The Hood Internet, garnered Futurecop! additional acclaim.

After last year’s production hit on Green Label Sound single “Hum Drum Town” with vocalist Theophilus London and comparisons to groups like Chromeo, Futurecop! are poised to take over global dance floors with their indie-pop retro electro anthems.

    I can see why people hate the new album. I actually like it, but it is not something I would expect from Futurecop. In my demented world I wish Futurecop stayed on the path that they were and some other band came out with the current album

    I much prefer the sound they were exploring on Lost City of Alvograth EP and The Movie.

    New album is OK. Superheroes is a great track (love Kristine) as is Misanthropist Wolf. Atlantis is not so bad. The rest is pretty forgettable to me.

    New album sucks [2] ...less space travelling, more empty humpin-pumpin on the dancefloor.

    Hmmmm, new album could have been so much more. I thought it was just... bland? I adore the track 'Misanthropist Wolf' though and jeez, check out the remix of it by F.O.O.L. (who by the way, are awesome).

    The duo's love of pop punk is all over this record. I personally like it but I can see why some people are turned off by it. That Coming Home remix doe. I could totally see that being a club banger next year if played by the right folks.

    Descubrí a Futurecop, después de escuchar algunos temas de Fm Attack. Me han encantado Transformers, Far away, Atlantis 1997 (Lo Fi version), Nasa.
