Who's your favorite synthwave/outrun artist? Which song or album do you think people should check out?
Welcome to the community!
Synthwave - Also known as outrun, retrowave, futuresynth, as well as other names - is a genre of electronic music influenced by 1980's film soundtracks (adventure, action, science fiction and horror films especially), video game music and pop-culture. Beginning in the mid 2000's, the genre developed from various niche communities on the internet in what film maker Iván Castell (of the "Rise of the Synths" synthwave documentary) described as "a DIY grass-roots music movement."
