Damn, I can't get enough of Synthwave. This music makes me yearn for a modern Vice City every time I listen to it. Especially this song right here I have found recently:

 

 

This could be easily on V's Radio Mirror Park:

Well Ubisoft did publish both Blood Dragon and the Crew. It's a shame we don't have this stuff in GTA V though :/

*Power Glove video*

 

His new LP is coming soon.  So can't wait.  One of the best producers.  

 

Nice futuresynth

 

 

Would sound so badass in GTA V Online just cruising or stomping people in races.  Love me some bomb Outrun.

I'm wondering if any of the heads in here can help me track down a song?

 

I swear to god there's a track out there that samples the synth at start (0:04) of this Freddie Jackson joint. I've searched around.. nothing.

 

Anyone recognize it?

It's hard to say. That sound pattern is pretty common in soul/R&B. Do you have any idea where you heard it? That might narrow down the library a little.

Power Glove track from the movie Hobo with a shotgun:

 

The beginning in this one reminds me of the playstation 1 game intro:

There's a different topic for 80's music in general.

Lycia is my all-time favorite darkwave band. Very moody and atmospheric.

feckyerlife this is for 80's retrowave or synthwave, a modern electronic genre that is heavily influenced by synthesizers from the 80's.  There's an actual 80's thread.

Anyone ever heard of Miles Prower?

 

Evening drive song right here:

 

 

This one feels unique for me. Don't know why, but I would call it... progressive synthwave. Great track:

For those who want to get more information about certain artists in the synthwave scene, check out Beyond Synth with Andy Last. He has talked with lots of different artists in the scene such as Sellorekt/LA Dreams, Magic Sword, Kristine, Perturbator and Sunglasses Kid.

 

Especially Sunglasses Kid has made some wonderful synthpop songs:

Two movies that packed a LOT of great synth music were The Guest and Cold in July. I suggest fans of synth stuff check those soundtracks out. This one is in Cold in July.

 

 

 

 

Don't know why I haven't really commented this thread. While I am big into heavy metal, my other love is anything 80's sounding, especially anything synth heavy. Any fans of John Carpenter's scores? I like to consider him one of the forefathers of this type of music.

Isn't there a synth pop song using that same melody? I definitely heard that already.

 

 

Some Photosynthesi to enjoy the weekend. :p
