Delos - Trace Decay
Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release.
The floor melting bass sounds, full of shredding growls has the texture of a razor, with an epic lead line blistering through the stratosphere, rising like an expanding horizon.
Trace Decay is full of mind exploding arps, twisted FX, outrageous
Stellar Dreams - Dimensions
Stuttering, lurching, arped basslines, synthetic voices pitched up and down before the reverbed voice scatters across the rhythmic drums and bass. A voice that chimes of haunting beauty amongst the throbbing synths. Neon lights oscillate while a giant inverse pyramid hangs above
Wolf and Raven - On The Run
You can feel the sway of the waves beneath you. Gliding, rising, dropping to synth melody lines so vast and expansive they sound like binary stars, both repelling and igniting each other.
Rushing arps, twinkling at interstellar-travel-speed, the synth-waves trapping

GUNSHIP - Dark All Day - Album Review
Taking stylistic and audio cues from Carpenter's brooding shadows, Cameron’s neo-noir chrome, Spielberg's uplifting interstellar lights, Dark All Day perfectly riffs on all the 80’s sci-fi you adored from your yester-years-youth whilst exploring entirely ‘New Retro’ themes. The very

In preparation for The Midnight's new album we take a look at their previous masterpiece 'Nocturnal'…
A VHS musical fueled adventure through much loved 80’s tropes, blending action, romance and horror in equal measure. Nocturnal promises not only splendid nostalgia-drenched-analogue-soaked sounds, but

A lazy VHS synth bent out of shape, mangled in the tape and beautiful for it. Trapped in the throbbing-to-pop sensation in your ears, adrenaline’s muscular drive through the veins.
