Synthetix Weekend Update

It's been a great week in the world of 80s inspired music with brillant music coming to light from established and new artists alike.

Our first tracks is a wonderful piece of synth funk smoothness in this sacuy remix of Shook's Picture Moment by DiscoRazor. The bassline is like butter and the synths are pure eroticism. Definitely another Make-Out Mixtape must-have so download it asap.

Scene new comers Starforce aren't resting on their laurels and are fast becoming regulars on the Weekend Updates. The duo's new track, High Road, is a pounding and action packed odyssey of nocturnal adventure. Totally rockin.

Hungarian producer Quixotic only came to my attention this week, and I'm definitely going to be following his music with gusto from now on. This artist certainly has the love for classic 80s sounds and is making lots of very beautiful music. His downtempo song Sorry is a wonderfully melancholic work of art. Looking forward to posting lots more Quixotic music in the future on Synthetix.

One of my favourite artists in the 80s inspired synth scene is Nickee B. This producer is incredibly talented and has much love and passion for 80s sounds. His music is consistently inspiring in every way possible and his latest release, Nightchase, is a perfect example of this man's work. Keep on rockin hard Nickee!

This week also so a new teaser from Jowie Schulner go up to soundcloud in the form of Friends Forever. There are some pieces of music you hear that you instantly fall in love with from the first moment you hear it. This for me is one of those pieces. The melodies in Friends Forever are what I consider the epitomy of total perfection. Jowie's orchestration of the sounds is nothing short of breathtaking. I wait with baited breath for the release of the full track.

Superproducer Lost Years has been having some fun with one of Mitch Murder's compositions this week with his version of Ravaged Skies. The result is an amazing combination of both artists sounds and Lost Years fans will find his sounds unmistakable in the midst of Mitch Murder's beautiful melodies. One can only begin to imagine what these two composers could create if they did a project together.

The final installment in this week's weekend update is another bit of love from Lost Years in the form of Nuclear V2. This epic piece has been worked into video form by Neros77 with amazing results! Using the classic 80s nuclear-panic movie Miracle Mile as the main source for the visuals has made for the perfect accompaniment for Lost Years music.

That does it for this week's Weekend Update. Next week there's going to be lots more action on Synthetix, I'll be covering the new Syncroft release as well as a feature on phenomonal new artist Horror Machine amongst all the other action in the 80s inspired synth scene. Till then, keep on rockin!
