Lazerhawk – Dream Rider

A lot has changed in synthwave since 2013, when Lazerhawk’s (until now now, last) album Skull and Shark came out. The genre has in many ways matured and a whole new generation of listeners and producers has joined the fray. Since then we've had the emergence of the dark synthwave, as well as an immense proliferation of synthwave artwork and synthwave music creations.

Syntax - “Transmissions”

It is easy to imagine the replicant Roy Batty listening intently to “Transmissions” as attack ships burn off the shoulder of Orion or as C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. One can only hope that a release such as this is not lost in time.
