Toronto, ON, Canada. Proud Labradorian.
Actually have grown to love that first new Starcadian single "Innerspace".

Turn Back Time by Michael Oakley may be my favorite synthwave song.

Late to reply, but it's one of my favourites as well. Odd to see it released quite a while ago, and now get an official video, and news of an EP next month, which I had been waiting a long time to hear.

Just discovered this by accident over the past week or two with some random YouTube mixes. Didn't know this style of music was going through some kind of renaissance.

Lazerhawk's Dreamrider is pretty rad. I dig.

I think this genre will have more staying power than chiptune. They seem pretty complementary.

The whole album is awesome, but Buried Deep Inside is on another level. Then again, I'm a huge Maxthor mark, so my bias may be shining through.

Also, if you haven't checked out Maxthor's EP and Another World, you're missing out. So sexually good.

Count me as another big fan of the Perturbator EP. Yes, there's not as many sweeping melodic leads, but that's essentially replaced with more focus on percussive grooves. And the grooves do indeed groove.

This is much better than anything from Seas of Infinity
I love Seas of Infinity, and I agree with this statement. The song is that good. Damn.

Haven't listened to ol' Perturbator in months after Uncanny Valley failed to grab me but I'm liking some of the latest EP. Corrupted by Design has a killer motif but it loses all sense of momentum in the second half. Tempted to go see him in Aus too, I'm well overdue for a trip to Melborne or Syndey.

I've a spare ticket I could sell you at a discount for Sydney if you're keen!

Also, just listened to that Thunderbird album. Holy SHIT is 'Magnum Bullets' awesome!
