Synthwave 101: Sounds of the Neon Age

Are you looking for synthwave? Are you looking to get others to join the "neon age" of the 80's synthwave scene? Then look no further! Share the music of your favorite synthpop/synthwave/new retro/new disco/new wave/whatever the hell else it's called artist here with the Tek Syndicate community.

Here are some of my recommendations:


Miami Nights 1984:


Night Runner:

Danger Mode:


New Retro Wave Records:

I'll leave more recommendations here as I find more. Now, it's your turn.


How about Carpenter Brut?


The Drive soundtrack was littered with stuff like this. Most notably Kavinsky and Electric Youth.


This album technically doesn't exist yet, but this track reminds me of Kavinsky.

Well, there goes that.

Sweet mix of synth and clear percussion. Pretty slow, but very nice to listen to.
