Artist: 3FORCE

Track: Olympus

Press Quotes: The latest release from Russian act 3FORCE, ‘Olympus’, is an authoritative synthwave gem whose energy will lift you to the moon!


Artist: Byrd

Track: Uncovered

Press Quotes: ‘Uncovered’ is the third single from Danish Byrd, that continues the dystopian sound from the previous singles, though it creates a rhythmical, melodic and intense atmosphere that suits the cold, rainy nights of the late hours in Denmark. Great stuff!




Press Quotes: ‘CYBER WOLF’ arises from the darkside of the Synthwave.
This track is the main track of the indie short “CYBER WOLF” directed by Denis Larzillière and produced by OVTN.

The track (as the movie) takes its sources into the grimy world of the 80’s Horror B movies. Frightening melody, powerful beat, screaming synthethizers… It’s like meeting Rocky IV and John Carpenter at the same table.


Artist: VHS Collection

Track: Space Between Us

Press Quotes: ‘Space Between Us’ is the latest single to be shared from upcoming album ‘Night Drive’, and is about longing for true connection. It’s about the desire to put aside the trivial things in life and be at peace with the one you love.


Artist: Saint Mars

Track: The Last Dream Ever Made

Press Quotes: Emo synthwave collective Saint Mars has done it again with its sunning latest single ‘The Last Dream Ever Made’; A catchy synth-pop/synthwave banger!
