Kid Flash appeared and dissapeared on the synthwave scene with a great collection of tracks, demos and remixes. Somehow, it's a wonder he's back, and how! His work is now collected and presented in this great album-ride called 'Nascar'. His music is dreamy yet straight to the point, elevates that stadium feel, rocking some FM-synthesis bassline and grooving guitar licks. Toms and hihats dance hand-in-hand while snappy synthlines make you hold your head up, straight into zenith position.

FM/AM radiowaves let the dark heart live on. On a quest for vengeange, Protector 101 crosses the Wastelands to serve what's rightfully coming; a killer album that spans over an hour and that weathers the storm inside-out and upside-down. Deep in the night, there's darkness but it's actually closer to dawn… Reverberation halms inside the abandonned warehouses of Wastelands while rebel arps congregate and synth sweeps leave you grounded with the power of the mighty protector. The music never forgets.

Hot Pink comes steaming out of Grooveworthy out running dream machine. This 2 track single is a really nice double sided egg-in-hole sandwich, still gooeye on the inside and hitting that sweet spot at first bite! Set on total cruise control, this is possibly his most dreamy stuff to date and we have a feeling more awesome Grooveworthy stuff is coming our way.

Double Dutch synthwave producer Timecop1983 brings his sophomore album "Journeys" as the perfect follow-up to "Childhood Memories". The story continues and sets off a canon of lovebirds by the broadwalk. A couple of doves are sighted by the hard-strollers, hand-holding on a beach walk vibe, following the heart, taken a lead like a breezer calming you down on a sunset backdrop. This is romantic escapism at it's finest, most pure form of musical settings, in order to get you right into a dreamscape of a future oh-so-bright.

Absolute killer tracks from Atrey have been hitting the surface recently. His new bee-atch-slapping 4-track Supernova EP takes you dancin out of step and forces you to do some split jumps while you're at it. But wait, that's not all. Grab your partner by the hand and connect deep for a slow dance on So Far Away, a brilliant vocoded power balad that dreams out loud. Epic, grand and with a heavy nostalgic feeling, this release swerves somewhere between the French touch and Californian FM highway party!

Garth Knight never fails to impress. After his 2 full lenght albums for Lunar Boogie he returns with this killer EP for Telefuture. All set on some sketchy behind-the-scenes Videodrome set; it's a dark and haunting experience, heavily spiked with samples, evoking a Front 242 new wave vibe that threatens torment and torture. The New Flesh are three tracks of transformation, blurring the lines of reality into hallucinating fascination, in the flesh.
