Future funk is a vaporwave subgenre[7] that emerged in the early 2010s.[8][9]


The genre typically features samples from 1970s and 1980s city pop,[4][5] Musically, future funk is produced in the same sample-based manner as vaporwave, albeit with a more upbeat approach.[2][10]


Future funk employs video game and anime aesthetics[11][12] with reference points including Urusei Yatsura, Super Dimension Fortress Macross and Sailor Moon.[13]


Some of the most popular artists of this microgenre include Macross 82-99 (with his series of albums called SAILORWAVE),[13] Skylar Spence[8] and Yung Bae.[14]
