Future Funk Review: Online Dating

Online Dating by Vercetti is a ten track Future Funk treat.  Its bouncy anime-fueled beats are the perfect ear candy to satisfy all your FF cravings.

The album uses City Pop samples as most FF albums do, and isn't anything too adventures for the genre, but it hits all the standard beats very well.  It's upbeat, uses heavy summer vibes, and is fueled by Japanese samples.  Whether this is a good or bad thing is up to personal preference.

One thing I'll say, though, is that the title of the album is a bit odd in my opinion.  When I think of FF I don't necessarily think of the internet as I do when listening to some of the other Vaporwave sub-genres.  It's just not a prevalent theme.  Because of this I was expecting something different from this album, something fresh, but it's just a standard FF album.

That said, as I mentioned earlier it's still a very good album, and I would recommend it to any FF fans out there.  Just don't do what I did and expect anything new ;)
