Dan Terminus' new Reverie EP shows him taking his sound to a new direction, from his darker days into lighter ways… Emotions still run deep and Dan's storytelling music is beautifully excecuted with heartfelt tracks that manifest some instant daydreaming.

Myrone amazes us with a great uplifting, emotional and rocking debut EP. A total zone-out on cruise control, this record brings blazing guitarleads and rolling synthwaves to an all time high. It's hard to pick a favorite but the openingstrack stands out and welcomes us into a romantic dreamland, with vocals by Voyageur. The tone is perfectly set and it all takes off brillantly from there.

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.

'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.
