Track: City Lights (Feat. Melllo)
Press Quotes: ‘City Lights’ is a great embodiment of Odyssette’s retro-futuristic style and vision. The feeling of nostalgia is palpable in the latest single from this artist, who once again manages to develop and enhance his production style while staying true to the synthwave genre .
Track: Sonic Weaponry
Press Quotes: The song’s sound palette is straightforward, consisting of only two synthesisers, drums & a bit of sampled school-band strings. Fwar tried to create an isolated feeling with this limited set of textures as many hum reporters he’s come across online live in remote environments. The artist wondered if those living in such places could be more susceptible to intrusive and persistent thoughts giving way to an obsession or perhaps they would develop conspiracies around the cause of the hum like some fear of the other.
Track: Crystal Glow
Press Quotes: The time traveller living in cyberspace, Cyberwalker, returns with another synthwave/retrowave banger!
Artist: Jack Reece
Track: Seiko’s Sunset
Press Quotes: A song is about transitioning into adulthood while struggling to keep a childlike sense of wonder for the world. Merging synthwave with chillwave with absolute success!
Track: Pattern 26
Press Quotes: ‘Pattern 26’ is straight-up hard AF. It will make your body dance and your mind travel through fields of burning wheels in the sunset en route to Berghain
