Futurepop

Futurepop is an electronic music genre, an outgrowth of EBM, that evolved in the late 1990s with groups like VNV Nation, Covenant, and Apoptygma Berzerk.[1] It is characterized by the heavy use of sampling and an absence of vocal modification that is popular in many other forms of electronic music, such as Aggrotech.[2]

The term "futurepop" was allegedly coined in a discussion between VNV Nation lead singer Ronan Harris and Apoptygma Berzerk lead singer Stephan Groth to describe the sounds of their music and similar groups at the time.[1] Other leading artists of the genre are Assemblage 23 and Neuroticfish.[3]
