Strawberry Station Stepping Away From Future Funk For A Bit
Odds are, if you listen to future funk, you’ve at least come across Strawberry Station’s music. One of the bigger names in future funk— a genre that is absolutely vaporwave, don’t @ us—- Strawberry Station dropped a video on YouTube recently, outlining his plans going forward.
After admitting to a degree of burnout, brought on by too much focus on social media and not enough time spent on making music for the reason he started, “Strawb” announced he’d be stepping back from the scene for a bit and putting his focus elsewhere. In this case, that new focus is his Patreon subcribers.
“The rest of the year’s dedicated to them,” Strawb mentions in his announcement video. This focus will result in a collection of regular new content just for patrons. The intent seems to be to give back to his strongest supporters as well as find the fun that was once there for him when it came to making music.
The video also ends with an especially interesting announcement. For anyone who is a patron by December 1st, they will have the chance to nab a Patreon-exclusive cassette, A Song To Show You, which will feature each of the tracks that will be released through Coraspect, as well as a half dozen additional new tracks that go a bit beyond the realm of future funk. It’ll be limited to a first-come, first-served run of 25, and the whole package looks rather lovely.
