Bart Graft

Going all the way, Bart Graft is back with a massive album, riding that Yuppiwave on an all time high.

Crunching those numbers out and making mad moolah, this is suit and tie rock around the clock.

This album is filled with great songs and modulations that stand as tall as a skyscraper.

Get in with those dazzling high guitar leads while stabbing synths are taking control as he gets slap happy on that bass. Boy is this fun!

Aloe Island Posse

Aloe Island Posse's heavy sampled and 80's j-pop spiked future funk might just that hidden vaporwave gem you need right now. Catch that bassline groove, you found that rhythm? Good.

Banging bongos go full circle while you get looped into blissful nostalgia, accompanied by trumpet brass leads and strumming strats, twirling keys and a hint and punching drum beats, subtle floor toms and heavenly strings.

This is that soundtrack to you and boo, jamming feel good tunes and playfully switching radiostations without a care in the world.

If you are fast enough you might just make it in time to catch the cassette on Sleepless Tapes.

Wojciech Golczewski

Throbbing it's way through the creeper's maze, Wojciech Golczewski brings yet another amazing score of haunting synthwave galore.

Dark and fantastical, slowly but surely this deadly nostalgic album drops crescendo's of pulsating and hair raising compositions.

Get set for some serious indie horror slasherwave peaking at the witching hour, written and composed for Jackson Steward's latest cult film 'Beyond The Gates'.

[Screenplay] "After their father's unexplained disappearance, two estranged brothers – responsible Gordon (Graham Skipper) and reckless John (Chase Williamson) – reunite to sift through the contents of his stubbornly anachronistic VHS rental store. Among the inventory, they find an old interactive VCR board game. Intrigued, the brothers pop in the tape… and soon discover that this video is no ordinary game, but a portal to a nightmarish alternate reality – one with deadly consequences for anyone who dares to press "play."

DESYNC Soundtrack Vol. 1 and 2

Crawling through the darkness and originally written as the game soundtrack for Adult Swim's DESYNC, this dark cyberpunk soundtrack is a fierce beast, wielding it's sword, slaying all incoming danger and puts all your defensive senses into high alert.

Volume 1, written and produced by Daniel Deluxe sets the tone perfectly with long, epic dark synthwave tracks haunting the dystopian landscape.

Volume 2, written and produced by Volkor X continues the perverse tradition of growling darkwave cyberpunk and rides the beast majestically.

So, get your slayer modus activated, go in full combat mode or just enjoy the thrill ride that this music has to offer. All good, here in Cyberland.

[note] "DESYNC is an intense single-player first person action game that begs you to play dangerously and creatively. Eliminate your opponents as you perform violent attack sequences using the explosive digital weaponry and lethal side-arms at your disposal."

Darkest

Dark and dank sound waves come pulsating all over you like a huge piped wave rolling out of the ocean as Darkest comes back with a huge second single to his upcoming album.

Oceans hits hard and thunders on the beach like a crash of stereo-surround bliss.

With a hint of outrun and slow-pacing arpeggiators, Darkest is bringing that high fidelity sound to the max and sets great atmospheric soundscapes with a cinematic feel.

Absolute high class synthwave that is setting it's footprint firmly into the scene.

Beckett

Welcome sportfans! Live on Mars, the stakes are high and your host Jon Beckett gets you launched into the '88 Airgames.

The stadium in packed and BOOM!— so it hits off into the stars! The whole field is transcending and goes off in exceeding glory. Beckett just hits home so hard with this anthem like fireworks ending a perfect celebration, in wonderful dedication to Vince DiCola. Simply amazing.

"AirGames: The sport of the future. Inspired by awesome games like ‘Track and Field’ and ‘Ski or Die’ to the uplifting ‘go for glory’ attitude of film soundtracks throughout the 80’s, ‘AirGames ’88’ is an anthem for the latest sport to sweep Mars. Like the films ‘Rollerball’ and ‘The Running Man’ in the not so distant future, sport has stepped up a level, and now, the Air Games League of 2088, fuses Football and Jetpacks into one, bigger, better, beautiful game."



Brombaer

Feel the gentle rush of a calming breeze glide through a forest of sweeping pines as you watch the birds of prey hoover above, soaring at the dusk of day.

Dreamy and haunting at times, Brombaer settles you on an amazing modern classical soundscape of flawless piano and orchestral vibes, accompanied with majestical ambient spheres to enlighten your soul and awaken that magic we all carry inside of us.

Sit down and indulge.

Project Paula

Step in to the heart of the microchip computer and recompose the matrix of the music grid.

Project Paula is operated by a legion of cyberpunks regenerating those glorious sounds of the era where innovation was ruled by rad operators of the wicked machines.

So, tripping out down memory lane, drift away on this lovely, transcending compilation...it's a fun thrill ride and puts original tracker music on the highest pedestal.

Mega Drive

Going extra deep this time, the Mega Drive disk is inserted and spinning at full bore again.

Deep in to the ocean he delves beyond the abyss and infinity until he reaches pitch black.

Atmospheric swirls surround you as you get accompanied by mysterious deep sea dwellers hailing from the depths of a the cyber ocean.

Bringing a wall of waves to shore as haunting melodies and heavy rocking synths dive fast paced from track to track, this is an album for the rock ages.

Hedge Wizard

It's been a long time coming but the Hedge Wizard has returned to the kingdom.

In true obscurity he now found his way through the Local Portal down Kellogg Street, citing poetic justice and doing some Sidewalk Sorcery in a truly majestic fashion.

A great step from the wiz' and he's taking leaps of genre-defining, boundary pushing and magic-spell-casting magic which only a true wizard can fulfil.

Diamondstein

Zoned-out information runs into the scanner and works itself through the narrow streets of Diamondstein. A place where the sleek acid reign gets the boggling minds conjuring and the haunted gather. Wicked are those who're altering states of confusion yet setting a sun and blazing fires in a world gone mad by industrialisation and malfunction.

Protector 101

Journey onwards on a epic deep sleep turiyatita dream, flowering out the ooze and maze beyond the vortex limit, guarded by Protector 101.

His latest soundtrack offering takes it further than any DreamWorks score, offering and hailing up a haunting yet powerful Voltron Super Robot scenario made of cherished aspiration.

Fantastically brilliant synthwave, intensity with dazzling vibes from crescendo to piano and back again, taking it beyond anything he's ever done.

Dare we say, this is his best work to date.

Rainbowdragoneyes

We can't get enough of Rainbowdragoneyes and this is his latest offering where he goes way beyond his usual metal-chiptune vortex and takes it straight to the mountains with some feel-good polka vibes. This song is all about living it up and partying in the hills, undertaking a massive rework of Finland's folkloric song, the Säkkijärven Polkka.

Vektroid

Wonderful rework and extension of Vektroid's debut release Telnet Erotica. The vape queen sets the tone and ambience of true craftsmanship, leaving no tricks behind, thickening-up the soup and merging the sound, combining those heavy sample-based layers with exquisite drum programming and roaring basslines. Telnet Complete just leaves you in bliss and shows the true grandeur of what has become of this act althrough the years.

Microchip Terror

Trench-coated villains run the hood as sleek rain crashes down on the dark, lit streets. Smuggling microchips and terrorising the whole block, a brood of evil brothers swaying their terror all over the city as the relentless bug hunt continues down the damp no-go zones, serving the conspiracy of the cyber tyrants. Shocking the scene with Microchip Terror, this EP is groundbreaking work, including a stunning remix by Surgeryhead, a feature by Electric Dragon and a well executed cover from giallo legend Fabio Frizzi. The clock strikes as this is synthwave-cyberpunk in it's finest, most wicked hour.

ZONΞ ΞATΞR vs. §E▲ ▓F D▓G§

Behold the brutal sludge as the giant sandworm makes it's way through the terrain. This must be one of the sickest releases so far this year, combining a truckload of death metal samples, slowed down, pitched-up and jackhammering their way through your eardrums into your skull. This apocalyptic soundtrack sees ZONΞ ΞATΞR and §E▲ ▓F D▓G§ (with guest performances by 0F.digital, HELLCOM and KING QUARTZ) take on the a wild aesthetic of what can defined as their self proclaimed "dethwave", pushing the zany limits far beyond the average.

Dallas Raines

The weather might be shite these days, yet the sun blazes too on this fine vaporwave release. Dallas Raines brings us a nostalgic weather report of collected VHS samples, saxophonic bliss and glitching all over the place with gems from weather channel forecasts, Stratocaster loops, thunder and lightning, mall soft vibes, coastal bird vibes, weatherman interludes and anything other that forecasts on Raines' radar.

TVVIN_PINEZ_M4LL

When you are a Back To The Future fanatic you surely must know where vaporwave artist TVVIN_PINEZ_M4LL got his name from... Indeed, it hails from that infamous "Twin Pines" mall parking lot where Marty flashes Doc's DeLorean past 88 mph and gets zapped back in time. Here, TVVIN_PINEZ_M4LL presents his new album on Japan's Seikomart imprint. A fine release of looped pop music glamour, reverberated into hypnotic rhythm mantras that sound like fragmented time-distorted aether flashes of wonderful nostalgia. Neato!

Lazerhawk

Completing on this amazing album that the mighty Lazerhawk has released a few months ago. We couldn't let this one slip under our Playmaker radar. Here, Lazerhawk returns with a very suiting, legit, cruise controlled album, flowing his speed-racing car down the electrifying grid on a very trippy ride. Firmly adrift the highway in his own universe called the "Dreamrider" landscape, this album is just wonderfully executed, including a powerful collaboration with Gunship. Arguably his most slow-paced work to date but oh-so-lovely.

Chevalier

Here's a great new minimal 8-bit dungeon synth artist that has recently debuted it's first release. Characterised by medieval themes, Chevalier's "Chateau" EP is a quirky yet melodic and transcending walk through a castle-filled landscape, accompanied by vectorised dragons, knights, weapons and a lost treasure map.
