Music, Lyrics, Vocals & Production
Simon Owen is founder of the incredible electronic/synthpop/EBM sound of FUTURE PERFECT formed in 2009 taking influences from the lyrical darkness of Joy Division & Depeche Mode, the experimentalism of early O.M.D and style and groove of Pet Shop Boys. Future Perfect has a sound that’s looking forwards and never backwards.
In 2010 Simon released the debut CD, 'Dirty Little Secrets' to great acclaim. The follow-up, 'Escape' expanded greatly on their sound to great effect, the single release and
remixes of 'Paradise' finding it's way onto dance floors worldwide.
2014 saw Future Perfect take to the stage at The Silicon Dreams Festival in Liverpool along with other bands Northern Kind, Tenek and Vile Electrodes.
Signed to Conzoom Records, they are label-mates with Parralox, Zynic, Sinestar and Daybehavior amongst others.
In 2015, Future Perfect presented an outstanding album 'After The Fall'.
Also In 2015, 2016 and 2017 Simon continued playing numerous gigs throughout the UK to expand their audience, including another amazing performance at Silicon Dreams Festival 2017 on 8th July 2017 joined by Avec Sans and Parralox amongst others.
These gigs culminated on 2nd December 2017, where Future Perfect played a fantastic set much critically acclaimed at the Electric Dreams Weekend, with four new tracks premiering from their forthcoming album, 'Touch'.

NORTHERN KIND are electronic duo Matt Culpin and Sarah Heeley. Based in Leicester, UK the duo formed in 2006 and have gained a loyal, international fan-base. Their early albums ‘53 Degrees North’ and‘Wired’, topped album and download charts across Europe and won them prestigious live dates including a UK tour with pop legends Kajagoogoo, Recoil with Alan Wilder (ex-Depeche Mode) and Gary Numan at Postbahnhof, Berlin, and Heaven 17 at the 2013 Silicon Dreams Festival.
The duo’s third album ‘Credible Sexy Unit’, released in 2013, met with critical acclaim from across the electronic music scene and was described by The Electricity Club as “...exactly what you’d expect from Northern Kind: retro-amped, chipper tunes, superlative singing, enduring song writing, and a professional attitude that belies their indie sensibilities.” Erasure’s Andy Bell took to Twitter to give his seal of approval, proclaiming “Loving the sound of Credible Sexy Unit.”
With 10,000 album sales and a legacy of high profile live performances, Northern Kind were proving that self-produced, self-promoted music could give the industry giants a run for their money. Imagine the fans’ shock then, when in 2014, Sarah announced that she was leaving the duo. Wanting to focus on her yoga teacher training and taking some time out to travel, she decided to take a break. It seemed that the NK story had reached a sudden and unexpected end. Until...
In December 2018, teaser posts on Facebook started to hint of a reunion and possible new material. Cue the release in March, after much anticipation, of new single ’Lip Service’. Hailed as “a finely tuned slice of dance pop perfection” by The Electricity Club, it seems that Northern Kind haven’t lost their touch and, if anything, have come back stronger, better and even more accomplished. They’re set to perform at the Silicon Dreams Festival 2019 and have just recorded a collaboration with Nitzer Ebb’s Julian Beeston. Their next single ‘The Feeling’ is due out in May.

In the early 90´s Johan Baeckström formed the swedish electropop duo Daily Planet together with vocalist Jarmo Ollila. The singles 'Milky Way' and 'Radioactive love' was released in 1995-1996, followed by the first - and only - album 'The Tide'. Until 2014, that is - In september 2014 they released their second album, called 'Two', on Swedish label Progress Productions. It was followed by a 3rd album, 'Play Rewind Repeat' in May 2017. In between those two, Johan released two solo albums, 'Like Before' in June 2015 and 'Utopia' in June 2018, both highly acclaimed by fans and media.
'Like Before' successfully goes back to the eighties, but somehow manages to sound irresistably fresh at the same time. Hats off, Johan!

'Utopia' A study in pop perfection.

Johan Baeckström uses his many analogue machines to turn his well-written songs into appealing and emotive synthpop, proving indeed that the synth is not dead.
