Introducing a new original sound collage from UFOverdriver called:
Dystopia (Is The New Utopian Dream)
…Music to help you party like it’s 1984 – or use it as your getaway soundtrack when you’re on the run from the Suede Denim Secret Police.
Track 1 (1:22) You Know What To Do
Track 2 (4:20) I Never Lost Control
Track 3 (3:54) We Will Go
It’s been a very busy month for UFOverdriver – lots of recordings and new mixes.
Many of the new sound collages have become, for me, a record of this moment in time when our country is making a hard shift towards dystopia.
Nope is the new Hope, Secrecy is the new Transparency, Censorship is the new Freedom of the Press, Propaganda is today’s FauxNews…
I plan on remixing the material from this period into a bigger piece focusing on this recent dystopian shift. Stay tuned…

A dystopia (from Ancient Greek: δυσ-: bad-, ill- and Ancient Greek: τόπος: place, landscape) (alternatively, cacotopia, or anti-utopia) is, in literature, an often futuristic society that has degraded into a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian.
Dystopian literature has underlying cautionary tones, warning society that if we continue to live how we do, this will be the consequence.
Dystopias usually feature different kinds of repressive social control systems, a lack or total absence of individual freedoms and expressions and constant states of warfare or violence. Dystopias often explore the concept of technology going “too far” and how humans individually and en masse use technology.
A dystopian society is also often characterized by mass poverty for most of its inhabitants and a large military-like police force.
Listen, Enjoy and Share!
Until later, best of health.
