Thanks to the awesome Tron Legacy Soundtrack by Daft Punk, the utterly amazing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon Soundtrack by Power Glove and the cool retro Kung Fury Soundtrack by various synth artists I’ve really become addicted to retro 1980s Futuristic Synth style music over the last year in all its many formats such as SynthWave, FutureSynth, Retro Electro, DarkSynth, ViolentSynth, HardcoreSynth, RetroWave, Outrun, and ChillWave. If you’re at work and need to get a lot of stuff done the faster and darker hardcore Synth stuff can really get you pumping haha while the slower chilled retro synth stuff makes great background music when you’re relaxing at home or driving at night. Hearing these songs can take your mind back to cool 1980s scifi future films and great old video games you grew up playing. The playlists are often accompanied by cool images and animations of eerie blue and purple landscapes containing retro futuristic cars and cities.
Here’s some of my favourite playlists…
