It's been just a short while but we're back to give you the top picks over the last weeks! As usual if there is an Artist or track you like support do so if you can, it makes all the difference!
There are a wealth of Artists perhaps not even on your radar yet that put in a terrific shift bringing that retro nostalgia we all crave! If any of these Artists become a new favourite of yours support and give them that boost! After all they're the soundtrack to our days and nights!
So, who got the top spot this week? Lets saddle up and find out shall we?
MAKE UP & VANITY SET
Online | The Time EP is a compendium to Makeup & Vanity Sets previous album Endless Destiny. A deeper study of our contemporary human / machine-learning relationship. The track I choose from this amazing album is an absolute aural sensation and had me hooked within seconds 'Online'. It's a cosmic clash of space synths and retro beats that soar magnificently. Sublime!
Mechanical Dreams | Admittedly a little late to the plate with this guys prowess as a musician. Of course we all know him as a veritable Synthwave Troubadour with an outstanding social media presence but his production chops are also quite sublime if his instrumental Synth Gift to the Universe 'Cruising in the Grid' is anything to go by. The track I chose to showcase was a slightly difficult decision for me as I had another 4 or so to choose from but this shades it for that chill pure Synth groove we could all do with a little more of!
Buy the digital album at whatever price you like and get your groove on. It's also worth noting that all the tracks on this album are completely copyright and content ID free, so more than perfect for streams, 24/7 radios or Vlogs etc. Chapeau! JB
JETFIRE PRIME & STUX IO
Autopilot | The duo do it again it an absolute stomping tour de force in 'Autopilot'. Beat laden with soaring synths this is certainly one for your playlists! Just wait about 2 mins in ye olde guitar fanatics rejoice. Buy it, stream it & turn it up, you can thank me later!
Culture | He's back!! Starcadian blasts once more into the stratosphere with an absolute tour de force of a release in his new Album 'Radio Galaxy'. Not unlike the sounds you would have heard once emanating from the solid gold painted purple speakers of Paisley Park 'Culture' is a funk odyssey of epic proportions which commands you move! In fact the whole album needs to adorn your libraries, we're all over here talking about it! Get with the program!
TURBO KNIGHT & VAN DERAND
Enemy (feat Ryan Ward) | Released 2nd December this track is an absolute head bop from start to finish. It's addictive hook and Ryan's Vocal coupled with the insane beat makes for an absolute treat for your ears! Buy/Stream it now and TURN IT UP...WAY UP!
Matter of time | Few words make this girl happy other than 'New Music by Ollie Wride' and let's face it, you're in the safest pair of manicured hands when you press play and this absolute triumph 'Matter of Time' is undoubtedly no exception. It's an upbeat retro groove that captures you in the very first seconds. It's a well crafted, vocal driven almost 4 minutes of bliss and all I can say his as his star ascends fame can only be a matter of time!
YOUNG EMPRESS & SUNGLASSES KID
The Boys | Young Empress call in the big guns for their new Album 'Lost Time' and this track with Sunglasses Kid is a wonderful slice of Retrowave and captured my heart almost instantly. Produced beautifully with a vocal that sits perfectly in the pocket it'll leave rent free in your ear cavities for awhile! Buy/Stream the entire Album now.

Fatal Attraction (feat Max Cruise) | Sinful and oh so sexy this track has it ALL! It seduces you from the off and is breathtakingly brilliant. Wonderfully crafted and appeals to my retro soul.
This track has some real estate on Midnight Dangers critically acclaimed new Album release 'Nights at Lake Milsen'. Midnight Danger teams up with with renowned rock and metal musicians, to deliver a monumental release and had even called in guitarist Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper) for good measure! This track 'Fatal Attraction' has Australia's own Max Cruise on Sax and its a sure fire winning combination.
Up there as one of the best releases I've heard this year! It's amazing! Do yourselves a favour and buy/stream it now. Available via Newretrowave!
