The 80's Guy is one of my favourite YT channels

"New Retro Wave, Darksynth And Synthwave Radio 24H/7D ! Enjoy the vibes !"

I don't like vocals in my Synthwave, needs to be instrumental only
Thanks, that's pretty sick.

I didn't look too hard, but I thought this thread was purged. Glad I found it again, even though I don't post much in it.

One of those intense foot moving head bobbing songs. Love it.

Not exactly retro synth but its synth by very good talent on the Deadmau5 label mau5trap. Check them out (No Mana)

This song and the video mix from Equilibrium are amazing.

Wow, those synth cords blew my mind wide open. Good song! Good video!
I will have to check out more of Johnny Jewel, haven't heard of him/her/them. That could have been much longer is my only complaint.
Jewel is the main guy behind Chromatics, Glass Candy and Symmetry. Italians do it better is his label. He's pretty prolific.

Themes for an imaginary film was something he produced in the wake of Drive (which Chromatics did some songs for) and is a great album: -


He also contributed to Twin Peaks the return soundtrack as well: -


In an alternative universe, I'd have had Jewel do the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack.

i dont know if its been said but yikes, calling new wave 'cyber punk' music. like that automatically makes me think you wear a giant grey shirt with a pocket tucked in your dad jeans. with that said if you like 80s nostalgia and good tunes listen to drab majesty. amazing band.

Kavinsky, Perturbator, Power Glove, Mega Drive, Dan Terminus, etc, are all definitely Cyberpunk themed acts that helped jumpstart the whole surge of Synthwave about five years ago (when this thread was created), so that's why Cyberpunk is included in the title.

Obviously Synthwave overall offers more than Cyberpunk vibes, especially nowadays, but it makes sense why Cyberpunk would be emphasized in the thread title since this thread was created five years ago when all those Cyberpunk acts hit the scene.
