New single from Volkor X is awesome.

I need a full release from Jessie Frye, Fantasy is a wonderful track.

Sharing some stuff from my country. Few and far between artists like these, especially in Croatia where synthwave and similar genres are pretty much unheard of. Hope you like it.

The Abyss pointed out this album on twitter from Viperdrive, and it's really damn good.

Hmmm.. was going to post a video of a track I really like.. "Weekend in '88".. and watching.. it sure seems near identical to a Kidburn track "Alone' which I posted a bit ago...Both from the official youtube channels of each, curious what the source is.

Channel5News I'm sure I tried to get into Bart Graft before, and didn't click with me. A case of quality over quantity maybe, there's just so much stuff he's put out. However, listening to the latest, "Worlds Apart", and it sounds like a Steve Vai album so far! Enjoying this.

New single from Kalax is great as well.

Yeah, Bart Graft is as prolific as SLA Dreams, so he's intimidating to dive into. "Modern Life" is great, as is "Self-Portrait I." I've also heard his "Go For Broke" album described as "SNES Sim City-like", so...

Great track. Atlas is a landmark album of the genre in my opinion. Pretty high expectations for the long awaited follow up.

Love this track from Reptrik too.

Some friends have been working on this for a while, been listening to mixes and it's sounding great. NRW put the first track yup
Haha I had this track recommended to me by YT last week. Really solid, with an original take on the genre. Please give your friends my compliments.

Thought the new FM-84 track would show up on Spotify today but it hasn't.

But something that did was a new surprise album by Trevor Something. No, not Cry Baby (it still isn't on Spotify)...


Just a quick listen, very melodi stuff. More akin to his older stuff than some of the newer. Need to listen to it a couple of times more, but really nice surprise.

Edit: starting to think this is up there close to Synthetic Love. Definitely one of his best albums.

Edit2: Also...


Edit3: wow, keep finding some stuff that wasn't, strangely, on my release radar. This will be an awesome album when it's released.

Just got around to listening to Cry Baby and wow that might just be my favorite Trevor Something related project since... well since Ultraparanoia really, but beyond that probably my favorite since Doesn't Exist. What a cohesive EP of tracks, I'm surprised it wasn't released under the Trevor Something name.

Bots Don't Cry sounds like Soulless Computer Boy Part 2. It's alright, back to the more synthwave brand Trevor, though can't help but feel it's a much less daring and exciting album than Ultraparanoia was. I guess this album has the advantage of being completely unheard tracks rather than Ultraparanoia which was drip fed for a year (and didn't even include Playin' Me, the best track), but people who like the vintage sound will probably like it.

Trevor Something just uploaded a mashup of Kavinsky's Nightcall and Jasper Byrne's Miami (with the vocals from Trevor's own "Into Your Heart" cover of it)

Stereogum was raving about a group called Fatamorgana and their new album Terra Alta. I decided to check it out and it’s so good. It’s all I’ve listened to this week. If this album catches on, they’re going to be huge. It’s all in Spanish but don’t let that deter you. It’s fantastic. Whole album is streaming on YouTube and other typical streaming services.

Seems really good so far.

Anyone have any good chillwave recommendations? I found a couple of mixes on Youtube, and I like it better than the heavy/dark synth stuff.

For example, stuff like this:
