For the first time I’ll do a review of a full EP, and not just a single track. And the reason is that I’ve come across a release that in my ears really fully comes to shine when listened in full.
Plus: It’s a fantastic release, no less! Continue reading Sicarius Hahni – Basquiat: Introvert percussion goodness
I don’t like “retro” stuff. Retro parties, retro fashion, nostalgia. All that. I hate looking back.
So my fascination for synthwave is really illogical. But here’s two synthwave tracks with really good vocals! Continue reading Double Synthwave: Two eighties hits that never were
