Album Out Now + Stream “Future 1999” (feat. Celldweller)

Klayton, the pioneering artist and producer known as Celldweller, has released Future 1990s – a full-length album of ’90s-inspired electronica from his project FreqGen. Capping the release is a lyric video to the final track, “Future 1999” (feat. Celldweller) out now.

Future 1990s is an expansive journey ranging from ambient and downtempo to IDM, techno, and drum & bass, and a bevy of ’90s-inspired electronic genres. The tracks on the album represent a year from the ’90s starting with “Future 1990” and ending with “Future 1999” (featuring Celldweller). The album is available now via Klayton‘s owned/operated label FiXT.

Each single pulls influences from ‘90s electronic music, ranging from the acid techno of the title track “Future 1990,” to the hip-hop and turntable scratching of “Future 1991,” concluding with the downtempo and chill “Future 1999” featuring a sampling from Celldweller’s “Mother’s Arms” and reimagining them for a new era within FreqGen’s detailed, expertly crafted sonic landscapes. Future 1990s is a perfect homage to the ’90s.

“As I was making music with my metal/industrial project Circle of Dust in the ‘90s I was influenced by the innovation of electronic music producers of that decade while simultaneously being inspired by movie soundtracks like Hackers, The Matrix, Strange Days, and Blade,” states Klayton“Fast forward a couple of decades to the success of my hybrid electronic-rock project Celldweller and my synthwave / ‘80s new-wave inspired project Scandroid. I now had the tools and experience under my belt to go back and finally explore producing the sounds of the electronic music that I loved from the ‘90s. Come back to a time that defined me: Future 1990s.” 

Future 1990s is out now from independent multi-genre music label FiXT
