Back to the 80s - the ultimate SYNTHWAVE thread

Postby 8bit_era » Sat Jul 28, 2018 2:28

If you're new to Synthwave and you have no idea what this is all about, here is the text ripped from Wikipedia (sorry Jimmy, I donated!):
Synthwave (also called outrun, retrowave and futuresynth) is a genre of electronic music influenced by 1980s film soundtracks and video games. Beginning in the mid 2000s, the genre developed from various niche communities on the Internet, reaching wider popularity in the early 2010s. In its music and cover artwork, synthwave engages in retrofuturism, emulating 1980s science fiction, action, and horror media. It expresses nostalgia for 1980s culture, attempting to capture the era's atmosphere and celebrate it.

One of the most influental acts these days is Carpenter Brut. I had the chance to see him in Berlin, he played everything live with a real drummer and guitarist. I'm a big fan! This song is taken from the brandnew album, almost a progressive feast that slowly emerges into a stunning 80s synth eargasm!

I'm doing lots of retro coding with this kind of music. It's so inspiring :)

ooooh, this is cool! I've been listening to a lot of Hans Zimmer while coding Petunia.

Edit: How the heck do you embed a YouTube vid? The "YouTube" BBcode option doesn't seem to work?
