[The Jukebox] S6E11 – Macross 82-99 – Fun Tonight

A genre that I have been listening to a lot in the last couple of years has been “Future Funk”… ahem, I mean “Future Funk 因為ヾ”

A genre born from the illustrious vaporwave sub-genre which was brought to popularity in the early parts of 2010’s with its sampling of music from the ’70s and ’80s English & Japanese pop and disco songs and the incorporation of synth-wave and other sub-genres of vaporwave and citypop.

マクロスMACROSS 82-99

An artist who has made a name for themselves is マクロスMACROSS 82-99, born in Mexico but living in Osaka, he had released a plethora of EP’s and albums including A Million Miles Away, SAILORWAVE I & II, Summer Touch & CHAM!


Fun Tonight is the 13th song listed on the CHAM! album coming after some really nice relaxing tunes enough for you to put you in a good mood.

This song contains a sample of the 1983 song “I Wanna Be With You” from ARMENTA & MAJIK – YouTube Link
