    Default Synths All over the Shop

    As everyone probably knows, these last few years have seen a resurgence in these kinda 'soundtrack without a film" type things. Of course, ripping off John Carpenter never goes out of fashion but there is more of this stuff around than usual at the moment - neo-synth and synth-wave are terms I've seen but I don't really care what you call it. Problem is, for my money a lot of it isn't as good as you would hope. Or maybe I keep missing the good stuff, whatever, this is a mix I put together of the stuff I do rate; a mixture of soundtracks, dancefloor twelves, libraries and, yes, some synthwave. I'm far from an expert but these are the bits I've got, I hope you like them. https://www.mixcloud.com/idlerich/co...-higher-synth/

    Thanks Rich - tracklist?

    Here's a playlist I made of 80's synth stuff from post punk weirdness to synth pop and everything in between.

    I haven't written out a tracklist... no secrets or anything, I just haven't written one out. I can do if people are interested (you're the second person to ask so I guess they are). In the meantime, is there a track you want ID-ing now?
    I will check your mix when I get in, cheers, Rich

    Cheers.

    Not a mix - just a selection of YT vids. I was amazed at how much 70's/80's synth stuff I never knew about.

    That first one is ace. Feel like I've heard that vocal before, has it been repessed?

    I particularly like that T-Rex cover, and the Vorgruppe stuff.

    Had a fun game with some mates challenging them to guess which were old and which were contemporary pastiches. They caught on pretty quick, but it is genuinely hard to tell.

    There is a whole scene of this stuff but he seems to be one of the main guys. Also Carpenter Brut.
