You Down??

 

Who likes the stuff?  It's picking up a lot of steam lately, even though cats have been producing this ish for several years now.  I think it's probably PFP the best Electronic music being produced today.  I find myself listening to an awful lot of it and it has a lot of great sub-genres.  Funny how it relies heavily on synths which were prominent in the 80's.

 

 

 

First heard music like this in a couple of video game called Hotline Miami (anyone play it?) and Farcry 3 Blood Dragon.

I can relate. Been listening to stuff like this for a few years, but haven't delved deep into the lesser-known artists until recently.. Found them mostly thru The FutureSynth SubReddit, if u haven't already explored that f*cking gem mine..

oh and this is helpful too.

Hotline Miami!!! Yea I've only played it for about 2 or 3 times.
This kind of music is good at start, boring in continue and frustrating at the end.
However I still like some Electro songs.

I wish Power Glove would release his next album already.

Love love love this stuff. Fully intend to make it the soundtrack to the upcoming summer.

 

I can't be f*cked to keep up with whatever name it goes by this week so I just refer to the genre as sexy elevator music. A pal of mine put me onto Miami Nights 1984 this time last year and I've been into it ever since. Babylon 86 and Tommy '86 are faves ATM.

 

 

How do you all find new material?

Subscribe to Maniac Synth, NewRetroWave and LuigiDonatello on YouTube.  They consistently post synth on their channels and it's all good.  Also pretty sure the generic term for the genre is Synthwave.  That's what I label most of it as.  

 

Based on what you like so far Tyla I would also recommend Trevor Something 

 

 

And...  Starcat.

Likewise Hyperglide^       Definitely need look into those youtube channels you mentioned
 

 
 
Can't embed soundcloud songs for some weird reason...

 

this one(thomas barrandon - kocmoc)

 

this(katana virtual - neurorage) & this one(katana virtual - bosozoku)

 

Katana Virtual is apparently working on a debut album. Considering the quality of the whopping 2 songs on their sound cloud page, it might be some good sh*t(?)

 

I wonder if its gonna be possible one day to take a playlist of ur choice (i.e. spotify or sound cloud) and have it feed directly to the music in a video game...sorta like how you could put ur own stuff on the radio in SA. I assume it would make some room for extra content.

I'm a big Alexander Robotnick fan. One of the originators imo and still as prolific as ever.

Check out his youtube. The analog session (live) are amazing.

I think James Murphy/LCD Soundsystem was inspired by Moscow Discow by Telex and The Robots by Kraftwerk when he produced Get Innocuous :p
