Seriously: The two tracks i got for you today are almost too much. They not only plagiarize but surpass the original sound of the eighties – all while staying firmly true to the sound. It’s just so MUCH of everything. They crammed the entire decade into their tracks. Continue reading Synthwave Saturday: You just can’t get more eighties than this
Here at Beatradar, Synthwave has become the remedy when we want something a bit lighter and more mainstream sounding. And now the turn has come to give Moonlight Breakfast some love and attention. This is sugar for the ear drums. Continue reading Synthwave Saturday: Sugar for breakfast
