“I make ear movies” says electronic producer Starcadian, whose album Midnight Signals (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is, in my opinion, the epitome of synthwave/retrowave perfection. It took me a whole month to realise that there wasn’t actually a film!
This playlist is a homage to that masterpiece. Best heard from start to finish, I attempted to recreate the drama of a science fiction film by starting with groovy Star Song, introducing conflict in Space Disco and then a sense of lost in Young. Büromaschinen and Omyiga later leads us to an epic space boss fight through fast, arppeggiated Techno and Drum & Bass. All with well-loved 80s vintage synths!
Thank goodness I had our A.I's help too, or sieving through FMA’s massive catalogue would have been near impossible.
