Class Action Vol II: Evidence


This is one mighty collaborative effort, the combined forces of Retro Promenade and Weekend Warrior have collided and resulted in this awesome release.

First off we have an incredible compilation including an all-star line up of current synthwave producers, some of them even making their release debut. It's a nice amusement park style arcade, with rollercoasters and other attactions, showcasing a pool of great talent in the scene.

Second; included with the release is a magazine with a panel discussion including Playmaker, Synthetix, Protector101, Silent Gloves, Telefuture, going back and forth about the origin and current state of affairs in the new retro scene. Further more there's awesome movie reviews by Corey Benedict as well as Paul Daly shining a light on new producers with 100 or less followers.

Third; and ofcourse, to keep the physical side of things hot as fuck; there's an awesome C60 cassette of the compilation, neatly handled by Weekend Warrior.

Judge Bitch


'Grideron', the sophomore album by Judge Bitch picks up where he left us behind with his previous (and debut) album for Aphasia. Stellar work, dark, uncompromising tracks, get crunk and nasty with an awesome overlaying radness filter, stirring up any Godforsaken pigeon hole with a whirlwind.

Python Blue


Python Blue brings us a crafty, dark and cinematic EP with atmospheres swerving to unknown worlds in total scifi fashion. It's a total soundscape voyager, taking us on a trip through the synthwave galaxy, winking at cute aliens and breezing through the nightsky of mysterious planets.

Tokyo Rose


Tokyo Rose just released his debut EP and it's a stellar work of dark, deep and nightly outrun music. His self-released "Chases" EP is a cruising, arpeggiating highway with full headlights blazing you in the face. Jump in the passanger seat and feel the thrill. Our personal favorite track on this EP is Hot Persuit, a classic outrun track complete with chasing sirens.

Cougar Synth


2013 has been a fantastic year for Cougar Synth. Some great synth romance took us by the hand and did us daydream, just the way we like it. Gentle and awesome chord progression with singing leads that radiate love. Simple as that. 2013 combines all the Cougar Synth tracks of last year, a year they say to be "a special time of learning". They mode wonderful progression and we heart this album very much. Enjoy!

Nightcrawler


Metropolis is the last remaining city with Nightcrawler ruling the streets in total Mad Max style, cruising hyper speed and meeting characters on the way such as Vincenzo Salvia, Diana Gitallog, Dana Jean Phoenix, SIMØNE and Patrick Rizzi, in an all star line-up of finger-licking synth and vocal personnel.

Let's cement this in space and time. Nightcrawler has raised the bar in the scene once again with the complete package. A concept album written, produced, designed and released by himself on a rad digipack CD format. A wonderful balance of synth music and scifi effects, set in a retro futuristic year 3015.

Cobra Copter


Brilliant debut release by Cobra Copter. He brings that sliding "Golden Age" 80's VHS sound to another level and seems to manually shift his synths into the starry night. There's an airy ambiance present that cloaks you with this accompanied OST feel, fine-tuning into that dangerous, suspenseful zone only a drone can penetrate, yet still leaving enough room to breathe.
