On his new single “Future Is Mine,” DJ Cassidy has assembled a team who knows a whole lot about putting together effervescent early-’80s pop-funk. Chromeo, the track’s featured stars, probably do better work reviving this style than anyone else. And the track also has contributions from Patrice Rushen, the singer of the 1982 nugget “Forget Me Nots,” and a number of studio-musician legends who played on Michael Jackson’s peak-era records. Listen to the track below.
DJ Cassidy’s album is coming out this fall on Big Beat/Atlantic.
