How many of you listen to Synthwave? I just had a glance at the genre browsing through the article above, and all I can say is... It reminds me of the 80's summer nostalgia an d TV series. If you know any good producers in this genre, let me know below.

Here are the featured artists and albums:

Bart Graft - Universe
Dana Jean Phoenix - Synth City
Duett - Borderline
Highway Superstar - Endgame

It is a good article, imagery is nice and I know the music. Synthwave as many term it is not very new to me, as they say it is all about the future past. Outrun game and Fzero 64 were the first cornerstones I thought of for this. Not many knew about Fzero though at the time; it never achieved the classic status of Outrun.

This is a solid release. I enjoy the summer sound and its positive vibe.


Dana Jean Phoenix - Synth City

This one was also decent if you like the vocals on any 80's inspired music. Notice the Juno-60 on the album cover.

KRISTINE - Kristine

This album is so catchy and uplifting that it is crazy. I feel young again and it reminds me of the general pleasant times when I was young. I have a similar experience when I watch personal movie favourites from the 80's.
