SYNTHWAVE SOUNDCLOUD ROUND-UP (week Aug 1-7, 2017)
With a finger on the pulse, we welcome you to this week’s Synthwave Soundcloud Round-up. Get set for a selection of killer tunes that have left a great impression on us.
It had been a while since Adeyhawke had released something new and so he hits back with a new tune. He recently got interviewed on the Beyond Synth radioshow where he announced a new EP and so the wait is over… With the typical cuts and breaks, “Move” is the first song he posts from the upcoming EP which bares lots of 90’s inspired vibes. It’s a nice and fresh approach in the Adeyhawke sound and we’re excited to here more, so check it out.
Alright, and from a veteran we move to a young and upcoming producer. The elusive KSMTK has released a new single. A sweet wave of gentle synthwave flushes over you, rolling arp-basses take you by the hand and gives us the impression that this artist has a promising future ahead. Chronemics is an uplifting song in great synthwave tradition.
Another banger is the latest tune by Damokles. A funky, piano rocking synth jam that oozes an amazing 80’s spirit. Very happy and uplifting vibes! Join in on this uptempo keyboard and tom-filled party, full of confetti blasting synths, complete with end modulation to set the score at an all-time high.
Hot Heels is back with a new tune as well. This song is very smooth and is dedicated to the mighty Concorde, the British-French turbojet-powered supersonic passenger jet airliner that was designed in the 80’s but is not in service anymore. Nostalgia, spiked with Concorde samples and rocking that hand-clapping and cowbell approach. Hot Heels does a mighty fine job on his awesome new tune.
Freightwave 80’s has released this awesome native American tune called “Native Spirit”. A real chilled-out banger that’s soaring ’round like an eagle across the prairie. With mystic flutes and other relevant paraphernalia, this deep track captures some great essence of synthwave bliss.
Oh boy, now let’s start rocking hard. Darkwave bad-boy Dav Dralleon has just released a new cyberpunk banger and it’s an absolute gem. Thundering bass and haunting arp synths, bringing that badass swag. “Vulkanwitch” sounds super promising and we look forward to hearing more from this artist.
Then get set for a 13 minute long epic dark synthwave journey to the stars. Meteor’s “Forever War” is a masterful synth adventure that resembles some of the best epic grandeur of Giorgio Moroder and Carpentur Brut. Complete with some awesome guitar shredding, sawtooth leads and blistering drums.
Oolongウーロン has remixed Absolute Valentine’s hit single “Police Heartbreaker” and did a mighty fine job. Apparently the dude is only like 18 years old, surely old enough to drive a car and operate a computer. But hey, Mozart was 12 years old when he wrote 3 operas, 6 symphonies and 100 other works… So there you go. Well, this kid has a killer sound so check him out.
And let’s end with Timecop 1983’s new song “Girl”. A masterful track accompanied with awesome vocals by Seawaves, that just settles down with the greatest ease. A very powerful, romantic song that is taken from his upcoming new EP “Lovers part II”, continuing on his amazing, signature dreamscape.
This concludes this week’s Soundcloud Synthwave round-up. It’s been an awesome week and we’ll be back with more newt week! Support the artists by following them on their respective social media platforms, buying their music and rocking their tunes hard.
