The idea for Homo Futura came back in 2003 by Hannes Malecki (Honey of Welle: Erdball), Frl. Plastique (Welle: Erdball, The Girl & The Robot) and F. Liechtenstein. In 2009 Kevin Gross joined who also is known from Konsequentfilm, ES and Xrossive.
The project has since 2004 appeared on several compilation albums and played live in Scotland, Switzerland, Holland and Germany – including during the 2006 Wave Gotik Treffen. Homo Futura transforms the scene to Dr. Frankenstein’s classic laboratory and working around the very different theatrical themes.

Time to sum up the past ten years and list the 20 best / most important electronic, electro, EBM and synth albums that has been released. This is of course a tricky quest and will most likely create some debate. Numerous of good albums has been released and I have certainly not listened to all of them, but still someone needs to make a statement :-). The albums are listed in order of importance, but may not be absolute, in the sense that – if they are rated as number 6, they could easily be argued to have place number 7 instead etc, but still…
