Retrowave & Synthwave Playlists

Synthwave (or electro-wave) is an electronic, synthesizer-based variant of new wave and dark wave music in contrast to the more guitar-oriented variants of these genres.

 

Caused by the restricted modifiability of early types of synthesizers, synthwave of the late 1970s/early 1980s often uses minimalist sound structures that have been described as minimal wave.

Another term of the style was techno-wave. In the 1980s, the term "techno" was an abbreviation of "technological" and did not describe a specific genre of electronic dance music until 1987/88.

That's a nice topic! I've got many different themed Synthwave playlists on my account. Check this one if you are into Outrun.

Nice!
I'm also building a synthwave playlist, favouring quality over quantity.
My ambition is to end up with a canon of synthwave:

As artist I don't have a playlist to share but would be humbled if you'd listen to my latest release Dark Awakening (by Sekond Prime). Hope you enjoy :)
