2010 has arrived and while i'm yet to be given the chance to buy a hoverboard, my old pal FUNK has certainly been providing some excitement of late.
as a genre it seems to be evolving now to include (or maybe just influence) a swathe of electronic, glitch hop, broken beat, chuggy, synthy, wonky productions - from all over the globe. so much development seems to have happened so quickly that it's difficult to predict where it's going to go next...so this isn't so much "future" as "now", really. um...sorry.
still, it's just under an hour of my current fave alt-funk tunes. i hope you enjoy it!

as always, if you like what you hear on this mix, go and buy more of the featuring artists' music (it'll be worth it - for each of them this stuff only touches the surface, trust me) and support quality independent labels. good music needs you.
UPDATE: i've just uploaded the mix to Soundcloud, too - for those of you who do that kind of thing...
