Futura 2000: Transmedia Back in The Day

Pioneering NYC street artist Futura 2000 & The Clash collaborated back in the 80s on this track, bringing together b-boy culture and British punk. And 30 years later, it still sounds awesome!

Back in high school,  was totally digging on these two different culture movements coming together and feeding off each other. It touched art, fashion, music and slang. A vibe and attitude that went truly transmedia.

It also set the stage for a lot of other fresh collaborations between drivers of New York’s b-boy culture and scions of the UK’s late seventies punk movement including legendary producer Arthur Baker working with New Order and Johnny Lyden getting in the studio with Afrika Bambaataa. All good stuff…
