Some DWTD-styled synthwave:

 

Vaporwave Pop (basically just a slowed-down version of Gloria Estefan's Falling In Love):

Since many of these 80's style synth groups are inspired by John Carpenter it should please you to know that the man himself is doing new music these days and even doing concerts from time to time:

 

 

My favorite from this album is Vortex which sounds like a cross between Chariots of Pumpkins from Halloweeen III and Escape From New York.

So i'm a big Carpenter Brut fan.

Managed to see them live last week and holy crap they were brilliant. Especially since live they use a drummer and a guitarist along with all the synths and keys, so it's much more of a band vibe.

 

 

I also have this thing going on where I re-record Brut songs as metal tracks since they translate so well, and I just finished Escape From Midwich Valley. The previous two I did were Le Perv and Turbo Killer. :)

Ok revision time

 

Is this Chillwave or Dreamwave and what is the difference?

 

 

Also fresh (ironically) up on Luigi today

The Prey reboot is going synthwave:

 

Apparently the composer is Mick Gordon who did an excellent metal soundtrack for Doom. Guy has some range.

This is somewhere between retrowave and oldschool hiphop. I'm not sure.

Com Truise is probably pretty popular at this point but I think his stuff deserves a mention too. He's pretty f*cking great at this stuff. This remix is quite nice.



I think Grum kinda fits the criteria of this topic. His music is also heavily inspired by '80s music.

(some pretty good vocalists on there as well, they sound like '80s singers too)

Not usually a fan of vocals in a synthwave song, but this one's definitely an exception.
