Freakout Standouts: Future Shock

Freakout Standouts: Future Shock

What can really be said about Future Shock? The duo, comprised of futuristic characters RayGun and The Doctor, can put your world down, flip it and reverse it with their sounds. They took over Hattie's Hat the first night of this year's Freakout Festival and in every sense, they definitely ran the place.

Commanding the back room of Hattie's with a creatively confident air, Future Shock were unapologetically themselves; their afro-nu wave-neo soul a force that no one in the audience could really reckon with. An amalgamation to the likes of Kraftwerk, Tribe Called Quest, Bowie and new wave greats, Future Shock, fog machine and bull horn in tow, ran through incredibly dancey tracks like "The Future," "Time & Space" and "Secret Weapon," all of which were very well received. With one of the most captivating and overall entertaining sets of the entire festival, if they weren't on your radar before they definitely need to be now.

They may not play sets very often but it's more than worth it if you're able to catch one. Follow Future Shock's Facebook to see when they're taking the stage next.
