As mentioned above I always loved this thread and I found out about a lot of great music just from this thread alone.

I think it works well with our new Communities board. At 105 standard pages, its gone beyond Off Topic IMO. Hope long time posters in this thread agree and please, bring on new music!

Thank you all,

Just stumbled upon this thread, I’m going to go back about 10 pages and just start listening to stuff to see if I can discover something new that I like.

But if you guys have any favorites that you want to recommend, please do!

It's time for me to make this thread my own.

Please note: Any music I post here will be from Spotify so you can easily add to your Spotify playlists and it's also the main music service I use.

This one has been out for years, but it's on a recent Markus Schulz mix...


I'd pick this to be in Need for Speed Heat over 95% of the shitty tracks it has.

What are your favorite VOCAL synthwave/retrowave/synthpop whatever groups? (Not just single tracks or songs with samples.) I enjoy Gunship and Girls Named Jennifer, and the first two Chvrches albums.

As a very long time listener of synthwave, my current favorite artist for a couple years now, is still MASTER BOOT RECORD. If you love synth, love videogames, you'll dig this so much if you haven't ever heard it. Most of his stuff is pretty heavy, almost metal like at times, but there is some melancholic parts and even some songs from him.


His latest album (2020)


He's also doing the soundtrack of an upcoming cyberpunk adventure game (judging from this song in the trailer, it's all new, original music and damn it's sick!)


He also does videogame remixes

SO GOOD

I love this YT channel, they just do long mixes over top of gifs from random anime, perfect background shit
