The Futuristics is an American songwriting and music production duo consisting of Alex Schwartz and Joe Khajadourian.

In 2011, The Futuristics produced 3-Way (The Golden Rule), for SNL. The digital short featured Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Andy Samberg. The song earned an Emmy nomination. The production was assisted by Asa Taccone and the production team, Ryan and Smitty. In that same year, they also produced DJ Felli Fel's song "Boomerang", featuring Akon, Pitbull, and Jermaine Dupri and "Pot of Gold" for rapper The Game.
The Futuristics' 2012 release, "I Cry," for American artist Flo Rida remained on the Billboard Hot 100 for 20 weeks, peaking at #6 and reaching #1 status on Billboard's Rap Songs.

The Futuristics also produced the official remix of Bruno Mars' song "Moonshine" that year for the deluxe version of Mars' album, Unorthodox Jukebox.
