Some recent musicians have been gravitating to the Italian writings about futurism, and have applied it to their music, lifestyle, and the way the world is heading today. Musicians such as DJ Spooky, Ken Ishii, Talvin Singh, and LTJ Bukem are all futurists.

They are taking influences from classical, 50s, 70s, hip-hop, dance, japanese traditional, Indian traditional, drum and bass and turntabalism to create a totally new sound. This is the sound of the future. Don't take your eyes off of these artists.

Fu"tur*ist, n.

2. Theol.
