about

"Solid Album"
- Pete Tong - BBC Radio 1

"A superb album, the more chilled tracks have great depth and quality."
- Nick Warren England, Bristol Radio

Los Angeles based producer Marques Lafelt is known for seductive soulful left-field sounds, taken from the perspective of a purveyor of classic techno.

The album Future Black Gurl is an afro-futuristic psychological concept album set in the distant future. It is about the search for love, self-care, and relationship issues — finding and losing love and then reflecting on the journey and lessons learned. Future Black Gurl was a limited two-part project, self-released in 2012, now recovered, remastered, and reissued by The Content Label as a single release. Prepare to explore a timeless electronic sound.

“Love Unlimited” sets the album’s tone in title and style, wistfully exploring the search for love through bold synthesis. “Sex in the 100s” looks forward to an older age with a late-night groove … the imagined couple remains bonded together. “Cleared Outtake 2 Loveless” is a vision of Future Black Gurl, subdued and hidden within a slinky drum pattern. “TextNMe” heralds the arrival of Future Black Gurl via text message, soundtracked by a smooth, technological sheen. “Oso” is a downtempo signal of encounter, the couple now in person and entwined. “Korggy N Bass” transmits love through an introspective chillwave groove. “Kombat Laptop Drum” is all about the tension of the relationship … feel the drama in the agitated bass notes. “Broken TV Hold Me” is the end of the cycle, our protagonist alone with a broken television, missing Future Black Gurl. Bonus reflections are then found in “Cleared” — divergent in rhythm and evocative in mood — and “Sex In The 100s (Clicked Mix)” — another suggestive whisper to the future.
