Some of these genre names are fucking stupid but the music is gorgeous.
First three are 'Synthwave' tracks - aka heavily influenced by retrofuturism, cyperpunk & sci-fi.




Now this is apparently called 'Wave', which I personally think is more like a chilled out trap beat. There's some real gems out there in this style. Again a lot are influenced by sci-fi & Japanese culture

Synthwave is a bit too retro for me, but there are exceptions of course.
I do like Wave now and then.
Whole mixes of it can be a bit of a "harmonic" overdose for me though ;)
Yeah ditto, most Synthwave is cool but some are a little cheesy, that Neon Nox tune is my favourite so far i think.

^ Yeah big fan of RIF, heard some of his unreleased bits he's got a real knack for the 80's vibe.

Nice, really slept on this thread. I enjoy me some synthwavey stuff since Ive played Hotline Miami. Some music from Scattle I'm really digging.
