80's Revival:Vaporwave/ Synthwave/Retrowave/Chillwave/Darkwave/Electro

Recommended Posts

@UnitronDeltaNo probs. I can hear the hip hop inspiration now that you mention it. It's hard to be different and won't be to everyones taste so don't be put off by too much critique. Synthwave is insanely varied and open to interpretation so here's hoping you'll find your groove. Just take your time as you are new, but so is Synthwave. Have you ever heard of Vaporwave?

Yes, I know vaporwave, although to be honest I always had a hard time drawing a clear line between all of the nostalgia-based electro music genres. I guess that vapor differs from synthwave in ithat it often uses samples plus it draws elements also from later popculture than the 80s and early 90s?

It has become a catch all term for modern synth inspired tunes that carries no form or is hard to classify. It originated from DUB Step, House, Chill Wave, et al, but like the term indie it is an easy dumping ground for the hard to classify. It might be worth paddling in that pool to see if there's an inspiration.

Some old uploads from Electronic Gems popped up in my Youtube recommendations, most notably Laster. The songs have a pretty sweet laid back feel to it.

His/her/their ''Beat Tapes'' are also on Spotify btw

Haven't been on GTAForums for a while, went dark while playing RDR2's story mode. Anyway, here's some stuff I've discovered in the meantime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you haven't checked out GUNSHIP's new album, Dark All Day, please do. It's really great. The clip above is also amazing, featuring fans of GUNSHIP paying homage to famous 80s movie scenes.

I have checked out Gunship's Dark all Day. There are plenty of good tunes. There were a couple didn't tickle me, but on the whole it's excellent (there's no pleasing everyone :p:D )

 

Liked the talking heads cover, but I still need to listen to the others :)
