"Superheroes", by Juan Rogelio, Big Boi Plat and the Real John May, offers the first peek into the upcoming release The Futuristic World Suicide. Produced by D. Still and Thee Lost Symbol of Still Grindin' Productions, the song descends upon the metropolis with a triumphant fanfare, the type that conjures up images of caped crusaders looming large over crime-infested cities. The fanfare is cut short in favor of shiny synth riffs that sparkle and dance throughout the track. Juan Rogelio, Big Boi Plat, and The Real John May are a trio of lyricists that form a six-armed swagger beast full of boastful bars and cinematic scenarios. High-pitched chords ride a tambourine wave and a drum sequence that knocks for several city blocks, providing the perfect accompaniment for these emcees to examine their unusual abilities. It even spills over into where the vocal hook should go, so that there isn't a memorable chorus, but a comparison of superhero powers and seeing where orators fall on that list.
A pair of remixes offer alternate moods and both of them work well. The first remix features a dark bass line that wobbles and wiggles its way through static slaps and added percussion. Warm keys light the path for the other elements to follow. The Matrix Mix strips the production bare to low, menacing tones and metallic toms that reflect off the walls. Percolating electronic pulses gurgle underneath the surface and make tiny explosions, resulting in sonic splashes all over the beat. It's clear that Rogelio, Plat, and May have partnered themselves with stellar producers, which make their lyrics sound all the better. While they may not possess superpowers in the comic book sense, there's no denying their chemistry on the microphone. If you can imagine Batman driving through Gotham and digging the scene with a gangster lean the entire time, then you have just stumbled upon the vibe that "Superheroes" attempts to approach.
