Artist: JAMO

Track: Pluto

Press Quotes: With synths pulsing and a strong sense of nostalgia, “Pluto” finds JAMO experimenting with vaporwave flavours on steamy soundtrack aesthetic.


Artist: Dark Matter Thieves

Track: Adventurer

Press Quotes: We listened to blue monday once.


Artist: BVSMV

Track: Better Days

Press Quotes: An ambient synthwave song, that starts out with an 1980s night driving vibe and then transitions into an ethereal arpeggio driven dreamland.


Artist: FRNCK

Track: Outrun city

Press Quotes: What makes this outrun/synthwave track unique is its double tempo: slow for the verse and fast for the chorus. The theme is a chase through the city between an outlaw and the police. That’s why you can hear a police radio in the background.


Artist: Le Brick

Track: Pontiac

Press Quotes: An ppbeat blend of chiptune with cybersynth & synthwave.
