Artist: Cartridge 1987

Track: Bad Ending

Press Quotes: ‘Bad Ending’ refers to a bad ending in a video game, as if the player had made fatal choices. We can hear a melancholic melody, after a gunshot, as if the hero (or one of his relatives) had been killed. Powerful!


Artist: Ampersounds

Track: Nightdrive

Press Quotes: Fred Falke and Zen Freeman’s debut single ‘Nightdrive’ from their new project Ampersounds is sure to become an instant obsession. On ‘Nightdrive’ they take you on a heady ride with their classic analog sound and vocals reminiscent of David Bowie.


Artist: Raffi Kara


Press Quotes: A highly atmospheric synthwave treat for the endless lockdown nights… Under the neon lights….


Artist: GhostWriter

Track: Go For It

Press Quotes: An 80’s inspired synthwave/outrun track, ideal for speedy night drives!


Artist: Legacy Man

Track: A Message for Ms. O’Neil

Press Quotes: This song is inspired by the scene in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie from 1990 when we first see the Shredder appear from the shadows and speak to his growing army of both delinquent youth and those who have demonstrated honor to become a full fledged member of the Foot Clan.
