ITT: We talk about our favorite synthwave artists/songs

>Lazerhawk

It just feels like true 80's/90's movie tunes, it's got that vibe and progression that incites the images of old 80's films in your head

favorite song by him is easily Overdrive, from Redline

mostly becauseo f that sick fucking solo it makes my dick hard

>Starforce

Although the tracks on Ominversal Oscillations took a while to grow on me, they have a fantastic sense of melody. "Payload Specialist" and "Celestial Time Lapse" in particular are standout tracks.

>Cobra Copter

While I'm not that interested in his other releases, The Golden Age has some great material on it. I really like those little vibrato modulations he does.

>Timecop1983

Although a lot of the songs off Journey are basically indistinguishable, the album has a nice dreamy atmosphere to it. "Dreams" and "Lost in Your Eyes" have simple, catchy melodic leads, although I do think the vocal melodies aren't anything special.

>Palm Highway Chase

ARPNET is pretty damn good, although it was another grower for me. The title track has a frantic feeling that reminds me of the Ocean Palace from Chrono Trigger. "Invisible ARP" has a tune reminiscent of something that Japancakes would have come up with. "Arena" is probably my favorite, with a melody that wouldn't sound out of place in a classic space shooter.

Pretty much all these artists take me back to my childhood of watching old VHS tapes and playing NES games even though I'm le epic '90s kid xDDD, so they'll definitely have you covered on the nostalgic feels if that's what you're after.

I love these other bands, but nothing compares to Perturbator. Just a monster when it comes to synthwave, and if you haven't listened to Dangerous Days, you need to get on that shit and find yourself in Nocturne City, 2088.

Listen to Kavinsky:

A lot of people would recommend Perturbator as well, but I never listened to him cos of his satanic image (pls don't judge). If you don't mind that, I heard this is one of his best works:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vsf3zYppP4

https://soundcloud.com/perturbator

Com Truise is decent, though I'd say he's more chillwave w/ 80's synth elements rather than full on synthwave:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCs_1EFmjkg

https://soundcloud.com/com-truise

Dynatron also has a decent name. He's a bit more spacey with his tunes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9L7HFWOsVw

https://soundcloud.com/dynatronsynth

The only decent New Retro Wave label I can think of is Rosso Corsa Records, which is actually owned my MN1984 and alot of the previously mentioned artists are signed to them, but you might find something I haven't:

https://soundcloud.com/rossocorsarecords

http://rossocorsarecords.com/

New Retro Wave is a youtube channel worthy of a subscription. They'll sometimes bring up exclusives from artists too:

Also, fashion style usually involves:

A varsity/baseball jacket

Maybe a baseball cap

Possibly shades

Kinda skinny jeans? Why not?

A sweetass 87' Corvette

And finally:

Play Hotline Miami

Hey guys, >>46991 here. Out of a random act of kindness, I decided to upload my entire synthwave collection. VHS Head got thrown into the mix, I think it's got an 80s vibe, but one of those video-collage type things. Your thoughts may vary.. Kavinsky will be uploaded on request, but you all should have those albums already. Also included is a FLAC version of NewRetroWave's Magnatron.

I believe he was part of the Rosso Corsa collective somewhere around 2011 judging from the blog entries on their site and in the comment sections. But no, no releases exist.

I think you could've messaged him directly back then, he seems to have had at least a myspace profile.

2011 was a pretty early time to start. Did you get there same year or earlier?

My first short experience with the genre was in 2011. Found a little track on Youtube (see my attachment). The artist had a few more tracks uploaded but there were no leads to the rest of the synthwave movement. Having no idea what to search for the interest faded. Previously I listened to a lot of geniune 80s synthpop artists. But this sound seeemed like fresh breath of air somehow.

The interest re-emerged after discovering more of the artists around the middle of 2012. Around the end of 2012 I was the most extatic. /v/ had daily Miami Hotline threads which would turn into neo80s threads, watched Drive alone and with /tv/, the sudden amount of musicians previously unknown kept me hungry for more.

Since then I grew to like a few specific artists and MPM was one of them. I can count on others because they still make music (for example Action Jackson). With MPM however it's a more sadder situation.

Judge Bitch is a pretty great one, who no one talks about. Great layering, great sound and each song has a good sense of progression. My biggest complaint is that he/she tends to use direct samples from movies and the like quite often, and once or twice it really really falls flat (fucking Demolition Man, seriously?).

No they don't. There's the hard-hitting stuff like Perturbator, Lazerhawk, and Carpenter Brut (the popular style, although I'm really not big on it), the more straightforward synthpop of Le Cassette, the synthfunk of SAIR, the vintage astronomy documentary soundtrack type of stuff like Starforce, the Jan Hammer worship of Action Jackson and Miami Nights 1984, among others. Overall, the "synthwave" genre is fun, catchy, and really a breath of fresh air.

I get bored with dancy stompy tunes but the slower, more soundtracky ones always get me excited, maybe because there's not really a lot of them. Same thing with vocals in the genre. I think that by skipping vocals many artists or even the genre in general lose possibly more mainstream appeal.

You failed to break up the harder stuff and the "Outrun" sub group. Lazerhawk definitely straddles the two but notables like Gost and Kavinsky are clearly belong in their respective groupings. What you drive to is not what John Carpenter movie soundtracks are made of.

Dan Terminus is good, if you can get behind his aesthetic, but it's not a must-listen. All of his stuff is pay what you want (AKA free) so I'd say check it out. The mixing is definitely a little low, though.

Till this date, carpenter brut is still the best for me after listening to so many artists, something about his music being more layered or it's just his sense of melody.

Looking for tracy tzu and sexkiller on the loose are still my top favorites, something about that melody in those songs just gets to me and lets my imagination run wild.

I enjoy the music, and fail to see what a pointless documentary will do other than bloat egos, unwittingly create and spread misconceptions about the genre, and invite unwanted attention. Right now, it's big enough that there's a lot of quality artists and varied appeal, but small enough to not get caught up and run into the ground as some pathetic mainstream trend. Synthwave says all it needs to say via its music and album art, and how they intertwine, you try and stretch that essence into full documentary material, and it's doomed to fail.

There's some banger tracks that manage to reach new intensities and stand out on their own (Death Squad, Disco Inferno, Cult of 2112), and no one can deny how well Perturbator produces technically or otherwise, but overall the album is trapped in a sense of been there, done that. Most of the music is predictable and bland, the vocals tracks combine difficult lyrics and heavy mixing to be astoundingly fucked up, despite Hayley Stewart's best efforts, and the poser faux-satanism is starting to really drive me up the wall. Carpenter Brut and Gost manage to hit some interesting notes along the way, Perturbator feels like he's just doing it to be edgy like the metal bands of yesteryear even though no one cares. We've seen these themes before with Dangerous Days and some of the Protector 101 colab shit, and we've heard this style before with all the bonus tracks he's contributed to over the past two years. It's worth a free download, but absolutely nothing else.

Lazerhawk, Kavinsky and Perturbedbuthurtreugeelovingautisticfaggotor are all entry level generic garbage they take no risks, they never improve or change. I am pretty indifferent to the genre but I can appreciate the more unique sounding stuff. But the mainstream shit all sounds the same to me.

I might as well post some synthwave I have discovered it feels unique and doesn't feel like a 40 second loop over and over like a lot of the mainstream shit that people are posting and like in this thread and elsewhere the song has a noticeable progression and there are layers of different musical things happening, I found it when it had 14 views, it only has eight thousand views as the most viewed video of it on youtube so I guess its fair to say its undiscovered stuff. Enjoy.

>Sexkiller on the Loose

Have you listened to Meet Matt Stryker? It's not one of his most well known musical pieces, but it sounds more or less like a more upbeat Sexkiller without slow parts. Definitely one of my favourites, along with Roller Mobster, Anarchy Road and You're Mine.

By the way, El Tigr3 is also pretty good as well. Both Heist (embed related) and Die Cosmonaut are relatively unknown, but pretty sweet. She Swallowed Burning Coals is good as well, but everyone and their mother has already listened to that one since it was featured in Hotline Miami 2.

A shame the fucker has uploaded a grand total of 4 tracks. That's right, this post would contain his whole discography if we counted Bleed Them White, which sounds radically different to his other much more aggressive works. I am unsure whether to consider El Tigr3 or Carpenter Brut the champions of aggressive synthwave.

It's good, but it feels more like it's trying to create a setting and a mood/tone, instead of being straight catchy (is the best way I can think of to phrase it) like the first one. The song I posted, which is the first track off the album, is a good representation of the whole album. You still have the strong 4-beat measure formula, but with a bit more of a horror feel to it.

The new sound is pretty good and it's admirable how he's continuing to change and improve. It's way too preachy on the whole Satanism thing (particularly in the vocal tracks), and it overuses the long, drawn out samples from whatever old film about a coven of witches around four times too many. Combined with Maleficarium and the second half not quite feeling like a crescendo (especially compared to Behemoth), the album just feels too single-minded. Still a fun enough listen, but for his next project there needs to be a better variety of themes and tones.

So two artists released new albums in late 2016, didn't tag them effectively, and nobody noticed. El Tigr3 dropped Man-Eater way back in November, it's a lot lighter and minimalistic than even his last release, and at times less aggressive. Big problem is that the tone of the song titles and the song themselves are sometimes completely off. Screws the mood up.

Surgeryhead released something on Christmas Eve. Just found about it like ten minutes ago, so I'm still working through it. It's got a lot more experimental elements, the theme's really weird, but it's pushing the Synth/EDM (or EBM or whatever they call it) combinations in this really elegant and catchy way. I dig it.

Well SurgeryHead himself, obviously. Past that it really depends on how intense you want it and how much general techno/EDM you want mixed in. Gost's most recent album has pretty shit sampling, I'd recommend listening to Skull and S/T because they really fit the bill of what you want. I posted some of both earlier up in the thread before my IP changed.

Satanico Pandemonium by Killer Instinct can be a little loose and it starts off pretty slow, but the second half is filled with dense, fun compositions. His most recent, Rebirth, is just darksynth inspired EDM, Gestaphstein style. I just recently discovered Into The Pale Abyss, which is free to purchase and has some pretty tight sampling mixed with the heavy shit that you wanted.

Let's talk about synth.

Although multiple artists before (Volkor X) or since (Scattle) have some degree of prog rock influence, Phantasmagoric takes it to such a degree that you need to actually enjoy prog rock to enjoy it. So if you're part of the whole Phil Collins cult, it's probably right up your alley, but I thought it was just ehh.

Duett's an artist that's been mentioned a fair bit, just not here. So yeah, really really good, fantastically produced, upbeat, catchy and chill synthwave. What you hear is what you get. Also has a new EP out, but I haven't listened to it yet.

Finally, ZARRAD's an artist from Russia with no fans, a bit too much of his own face, and production that's clearly on a tight budget. But his albums are filled with really unique and boundary breaking explorations, both big and small, of what you can do and where you can take the genre without ever fully diverging from a synthwave sound. I think it's something that deserves more recognition and I hope you'll agree.

Mada Yana mixes elements of vaporwave with traditional synthwave and a lot of horror synth elements. The end result is pretty smooth and base-heavy, without heavy base. Definitely worth checking out.

I mostly ignored Occam's Laser, assuming him to be another generic synth artist, and his new albums aping Perturbator's stale satanism. Once I realized he was actually doing a full trilogy based off of Dante's Divine Comedy was I enticed. It's effectively put together, the themes are interesting, and there's a solid and genuine attempt to display the spirituality of its inspiration and the metaphysical concepts that entails. Nine Circles is probably the weakest, all the songs have the same general tempo and flow.

And yeah, the new Mega Drive could of used a bit more meat, but is still real fucking good.

It's because Synthwave was absolutely flooded with low effort trash, and channels like NewRetroWave represent that. The movement isn't dead, just oversaturated because of how easy it is to emulate, and no one really wants to subscribe to a channel that releases the same song over and over, even though its all by different artists.

The only thing keeping Synthwave alive was regular releases of titles that breathed new life into the culture. Compare Hotline Miami and most modern Synthwave, you'll start seeing what it is everyone is trying to emulate.

At least with other electronic genres some artists will try to break out and try new sounds. There's only so many 80s synthesizers we can reuse.

that's the thing, most of Hotline Miami's music isn't purely Pertur-binjuice or Carpenter Butt ripoffs. I don't think Hotline Miami brought new life to Synthwave, it just amplified the most memorable angry parts (Pseudo 80's EBM) while ignoring the other influences (correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard electroclash, Indie dance/indie disco, frenchy house and chiptune)

Yeah, Hotline Miami wasn't purely A E S T H E T I C Synthwave like Blood Dragon or Kung Fury's OSTs were, but Synthwave is a big label for a set of subgenres, and most everyone involved got sucked into the label and culture.

The big point is that the culture relied on those big releases in other mediums to help out the musical genre of Synthwave. I just like the sound more than the 80s nostalgia bait especially since I wasn't even alive in the 80s yet I feel said 80s culture is holding it back, because most everything 80s-related has been plundered either by Synthwave, Vaporwave, the original artists coming back, or corporate media re-releasing the old.

You are entitled to your own opinion but perhaps you weren't listening close enough, the song goes through multiple evolutions in the chord progression and different music layers layering on top of each other, and at the time I had listened to way over half of all the songs posted in the thread up until that point and all the songs were a basic static 30-45 second loops that did not change or anything and it just repeated for the duration of all of those songs and it comparatively was more unique then everything else posted. So I figured I would share.

I feel like the original wave of synthwave that's got nothing but nonstop 80's cultural references is completely dead and devoid of real content, not that that stops NewRetroWave or what have you from beating the dead horse. This has lead to three things.

1: Artists (either partially or in full) diverging from 80's themes and concepts and instead using synthwave to explore new worlds or experiment

>Ex: Dan Terminus, Gost, Magic Sword, Zarrad

2: Artists forgoing any cultural baggage and instead focusing solely on the musical element of perfecting catchy and effective synth bangers, sometimes mixing in elements of more modern electronica.

>Ex: Makeup And Vanity Set, El Tigr3, Tonebox

3: Artists mining from the 90's and maybe the 70's instead, with varying degrees of subtlety.

>Ex: Megahit, Surgeryhead, Volkor X(?)

In a roundabout way this brings me to Vista of Chaos, some fresh darksynth from which may or may not apply to all three catagories above. It's creative, it's menacing, it never stops changing and it never loses pace. Check it out, or at the very least the webms I'm posting.

Come on dude, in the past 7 years what has Carpenter Brute actually released that is NEW? EP1 EP2 EP3 and Trilogy which just includes all of the previous EPs into one album and now a """""new""""" LIVE album? Which, as stated before. is just a crappy audio quality version of trilogy.

Sure Theres a few on and off tracks for fury, the track for rise of the synths documentary for a single shekel to basically fund the documentary and a few tracks for random compilation albums and remixes for an obscure french industrial label?

Even Jay Peau, James Kent, Garrett Hays has at-least released something new and experimental on a consistent basis within the past 5 years, Although I'd accuse Jay Peau to be formulaic in his music rather than being innovative, his new B:Sides sounds exactly the same as Shape without any experimentation whatsoever

As much as I like Carpentur Brute as the next guy, I feel it's necessary to shit on him since you faggots won't stop dickriding him. It's literally babby's first synthwave. Every single FUCKING Synthwave Compilation always starts with Turbo Killer and it's starting to piss me the fuck off

Anything from the 2009-2013 era I've classified as "old" retrowave…proto-retrowave if you will….even though synthwave came from the 80s.

Reason being is that edm artists from that time were still rediscovering and experimenting with synths and basslines. most of which may mostly sound a bit off and out of tune, after listening to most of what in that folder, albeit its 10x better than half the trash people aremaking today with LE 80S MUSIC XDDDD

The Synthwave heavies are all revving up for a lot of music this fall, it seems.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93Cn15u7CRc&feature=youtu.be

Dan Terminus's new album comes out on November 10th. Seems like it'll be using more subdued, old 16-bit computer sounds, which makes sense, as he's done a couple reworks and remixes of that kind of stuff on his soundcloud. Seems alright.

https://soundcloud.com/perturbator/new-model-ep-sampler-1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPMC3GYpBHg

Perturbator has an EP coming out and yeah it still sucks. He's layered some more modern elements on top of it, but the core synths are still the exact same from Dangerous Days back in 2014. And the vocal track is just terrible. Hell, when was the last time you heard vocals in a synth/darksynth album that isn't trash?

https://soundcloud.com/7hrcircle

Mega Drive's new project still keeps his trademark sound, but breaks away from synthwave and digs deeper into the glitchhop, chillwave and weird electronic vibes Seas of Infinite had. But there's also a new single (embedded) that sticks more to his guns. Very fun stuff.

El Tigr3's also got a new album in the works, but nothing to show for it yet.

This sounds amazing and I'm extremely happy with the new direction that Perturbator is moving in. It still has his unique style, but it doesn't sound like the stereotypical synthwave that everyone's rehashing over and over again these days. I also love that he's moving away from the bright neon and cliche imagery. This new solid black-and-white theme is wonderful, and it actually makes the music feel heavier and darker.

I was pleasantly surprised with his new album. The melodies he made surpassed his previous work. When I first heard Vantablack and TPD, I was very sceptical about the whole thing. I haven't really liked both of the songs, but after listening to it a few times, I started to enjoy it. How he moved to a new "genre" was refreshing. The grittiness and rawness. Damn. Plus the small details in his songs were amazing. He really outdone himself. Favourite tracks are Tainted Empire and Corrupted by design. /blogpost

No the music is fine, but its low effort trash because all he does add LE 80S BAPORWAVE XDDD IMAGE over the track and does fuck all otherwise, its tryhard.

Literally all the Synthwave promoters are trash, including NewRetroWave, they all do the same dumb shit of using a static 80s image for their aesthetic, which is not enough to sell the music or be visually engaging.

Why don't you add some motion into the videos for fucks sake. Pay some fucking basement dwellers for a VJ Loop or add your own Audio Spectrum. Heck, even the shitty futurefunk promoters always use a looped GIF of some 90s anime and they receive well over twice as many views, compared to NRW.

The synthwave scene, yes, the darksynth scene, no.

We were making good headway and great strides into the genre, with each dark-synth album getting released, out-doing the previous album. It was truly a cold war arms race, which ultimately lead to IMO, the greatest dark-synth album of all time and that is Vulta's Nabla 1, truly no other darksynth album can compare , In response to this, Petubator released Uncanny Valley which, if not, is twice as good. This was the climax.

Darksynth as a genre was truly were the magic and research was getting put into, with each Synthwave producer experimenting with sounds ie Laserpunk and Dance Wtih the Dead, but alas, you have the dreamwavefags complaining that the music "ISN'T STICKING TO ITS 80S ROOTS" or "HURR DURR SOUNDS LIKE DUBSTEP" or "THE DARKSYNTH GENRE IS OVERSATURATED" Whilst shitting out the same low effort trash everyone has heard before a million times over.

2009-2013 was the appropriate time where you can make dreamwave. People where getting sick of listening the same dumb EDM over and over again, as a result, many EDM producers started to experiment and create dreamwave. Of course natural selection comes at play and after 5 years of evolution and the genre naturall evolved into Synthwave/Darksynth. The only natural progression for dreamwave is to move onto lofi chillwave such as HOME or Melancholy.

Dreamwave -> Chillwave. The same should be with Synthwave -> Darksynth. However I believe the scene is regressing, and as a result, The scene is dying. Earlier this year Lazerhawk released a dreamwave album, which, in my honest opinion, was extremely lackluster and didn't warrant the attention that it got, if anything, its the most overrated album this year. Then of course you have Leechers such as Scandroid who is just some 40 year old greek fuck with a shit tonne of capital at his disposal creating remixes of remixes of his own tracks lmao, This was the final nail in the coffin

In this month/whatever on synthwave. Let's talk about synth.

JK/47, Cyberpunk:

Outrun style stuff mixed with a little bit of Future Funk, but played off each other very well, and avoiding the aesthetic pitfalls of either. Songs build over time and everything has more complexity than it initially appears.

Mega Drive, Sleeper Street:

Big pivot from his cyberpunk/sci-fi styles to an obvious horror tribute. Some unexpected influences like Silent Hill, instead of just John Carpenter John Carpenter. Slower, heavier, more atmospheric, building a lot off of heavy sub-bass. Really great stuff, the dude's just fucking talented.

Finally, STRNGR, Human Error (A and B):

Hard Darksynth mixed with other genres like EDM and Industrial without completely shitting the bed like Surgeryhead's newer albums. Big variety of styles and genre infusions, but always ruthless, catchy and robotic.

I think the trends currently are prog-tinged synthwave with really long track lengths (Automated Refrains, God Complex from Perturbator's new album, 2121 by Maniac), electro-industrial like you said with a heavy cyberpunk vibe (woob, The New Model, STRNGR), and albums mixed with vaporwave/weird internet shit for extra punch and flavor.
