Another week another Top Trax list.
As always a great list of gems to wrap your aural chops around!
So who grabbed the top spot? Let's get into it shall we?
ROLLERCOASTER | THE MAD CHASE
This track knocks you on your ass in the best way possible. It's full of intent and brilliantly produced. It has a pedal to the metal sort of vibe that I'm all over like white on rice. The whole album is worthy of your playlists but this particular track stood out to me. These guys have solidified themselves as ones to watch for me. Take a listen and thank me later.
AUTORADIO | SUMMER LOVE
I honestly can't tell if this is parody or genius but in reality I don't really care. Now, rumour has it that this particular EP release is a side project by someone HUGE on the French Synth scene, I'll refrain from naming until I confirm my source but the track I've chosen to favour is 'Summer Love'. It's pure night drive brilliance with that top down flavour!
SLVMBER | REALITY BYTES
Released just 2 days at the time of writing this article SLVMBER has graced us with his album now on vinyl 'We're So Happy You Discovered This Technology' via Timeslaves and what do ya know I'm so happy I discovered this album. It's a treat from start to finish not at all your typical Synthwave Album and completely worth your efforts to listen. Reality Bytes was my chosen track. It's sublime!
LAU | INSTANT SUNSHINE
LAU's new Album gets it's long awaited release on the 14th February and the track Instant Sunshine has some real estate on this drop. It's her 4th and final release from her new album and gives us more than a taste of what we can expect. With Disco vibes for days it's ultimately listenable and of pure quality which we've come to expect from LAU and indeed from AZTEC Records! Great work!
TEROUZ | BIG BOY GAMES
Fab Tool vibes abound to make this track an absolute find. Well when I say "find" it was served to me on a plate by the Artist himself which left some notable contusions having kicked myself on never hearing him before, well until now that is! Inhale this, in all its gothic reverie with a thoroughly unique vocal delivery the likes of which I promise you've never heard! It's just great!
CARPENTER BRUT | IMAGINARY FIRE feat Greg Puciato
Few words please me more than "New Carpenter Brut". I've seen the texts and read the narrative around Bruts new release and I for one am thrilled about this new direction of sorts. It's packed full of rage and intent and I'm here for it. Obvious fascination for leather aside I'm expecting big things from the new Album release set to drop in April next year! Bring the thunder Carpenter Brut like only you can!

LUEUR VERTE FEAT MIAMI NIGHTS 1984
Hot damn this track is good! and why wouldn't it be when you have a Lueur Verte composition with a synth solo by Miami Nights 1984 and mastered by another one of the greats Dynatron. With a crystal clear Synthwave soundscape and commanding production values it's a metaphorical balls to the wall pedal to the metal classic from days of yore and I cannot get enough of it. It's tracks like this that cemented my love for this genre and it's incredible! Take a bow gents! TAKE A BOW!
Some more tracks to be posted next week in the meantime support your favourite Artists and share their work. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
