TungstenWhale I believe this album has introduced me well to synthwave and related genres, and at such an excellent price! Impossible to choose a favorite track, even after multiple listenings.

JasonXYZ Incredible value for 70 tracks. I'm only a few tracks in and there is definitely something for everyone who loves synth wave. Favorite track: Mangadrive - Escaping Neo Miami.
FLESH MECHANIC

FLESH MECHANIC The character limit in these reviews prevents me from properly describing how awesome this album is, but trust me, this collection is something EVERY synthwave fan should own. It's got everything from dreamwave to darksynth and is ideal for introducing the genre to new people as well as pleasing an experienced listener. Hard to pick a favorite, but that Hollywood Burns cover by Battlejuice is just so badass! Favorite track: Hollywood Burns - Came To Annihilate (Battlejuice Remix).

about

This is the first RetroSynth compilation. "In Synth We Wave" showcases many of the top artists that were featured on the RetroSynth YouTube channel over the past year, along with tracks by artists on the RetroSynth Records roster. Much like how everything is set up on the RetroSynth channel, there is something for everyone here.

I can't thank everyone enough for wanting to be involved in this project. It means the world to me to be working with such incredibly talented artists / friends in the growing Synthwave community. I am eternally grateful to everyone who supported RetroSynth over the past year and helped spread the love on social media.

Special thanks to Advection Stride (Brutal Render) for everything they've done for the channel in the past year and for helping me set up this awesome label. Also major thanks to Zoltan ("The Neon Droid") Gabor for helping out with the artwork on this compilation, along with the concept and of course the title - which was coined by The TCR.

Also major thanks to my artists! - Advection Stride, Ray Gun Hero, Zalza, MOTIV, Stephanie, FOMOR1AN, Blaze of Gunfire,Flammen, Voynich, and Dealiosis! You guys all rock and are amazing! Thanks also to Kaleb and Jon at MerchWave for doing an outstanding job! We have arrived, and we're just getting started!

Track Name: The Neon Droid - In Synth We Wave
If you wanna do it baby, say it again
Waiting for it baby, there's no need to explain
I've seen the grids, I've felt your pain
It's time to break it down
In Synth We Wave
Track Name: Mono Memory - Outrun The World
Talk to me
It's only words unspoken
If you don't, believe in us
There's nothing left to give it anymore

Always standing in the shadows
Always feeling uptight
Every time we try
But I'll running right beside you
And I'll be holding your hand
Every time we try, to outrun the world

I can't sleep
The city lights are so alive
In the dark, we'll stay tonight
And hope this dream will slowly fade away

Always standing in the shadows
Always feeling uptight
Every time we try
But I'll running right beside you
And I'll be holding the line
Every time we try, to outrun the world

Every time
Every time we try
Every time
Every time we try
Track Name: The Midnight - The Comeback Kid
i been so low
felt the wind blow
like i was a screen door
in a thunderstorm

yeah i've been down
i've been laid out
but you always were
what I came here for

waiting all day
just for my say
for a bell to ring
for the first sting

Yeah I been blue
that ain’t nothing new
it’s you my friend
you’re why I get up again

I’ve made mistakes
I’ve been hard hit
I say so what
so what if I did
I’m the clear eyed
I’m the
comeback kid

it’s been a rough year
been some tough tears
I’ve lost so fast
all that I had

but when it’s time to
i will fight for you
cause you know you are
why i’ve come so far

I’ve made mistakes
I’ve been hard hit
I say so what
so what if I did
I’m the clear eyed
I’m the
comeback kid
start it over
start it over again
I'm the clear eyed
I'm the comeback kid
Track Name: Timecop1983 - Lost Without You (Feat. Matt Turkington)
I’m lost without you

I’ve been riding this train for so long
Searching for a place to call my own
Accelerating beyond control
I’m going faster than a speeding bullet
from where my heart calls

(lost without you)

I’m tired of running baby

(lost without you)

I just can’t forget the past I’m lost without
you I don’t know what I’d do if I lost you again
I’ll hold you through the night

I’m lost without you
I don’t know where I’d be if you weren’t in my life
Together till the end

These tracks keep running full circle
And there you are each time, I look into your eyes
There’s no doubt I can’t keep going on
Someone stop this train before
I lose my mind

(lost without you)

I’m tired of running baby

(lost without you)

I just can’t forget the past
Track Name: Dana Jean Phoenix - Real Deal (Feat. London Lazers)
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL
STANDING THERE
JUST WAITING FOR EVERYTHING TO WORK OUT RIGHT
SHE DOESN'T KNOW
THAT YOU CARE
DON'T BE AFRAID
SHOW HER HOW YOU FEEL TONIGHT

CHORUS:
REACH OUT FOR THE STARS
ITS TIME TO SHOW YOUR CARDS
DOUBLE DOWN AND REVEAL
YOU'RE THE REAL DEAL

AND IT MIGHT NOT BREAK YOUR WAY
IF YOUR FORTUNE'S OVERPLAYED
BUT SHE JUST WANTS TO DANCE
SO YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE YOUR CHANCE
LET IT ALL RIDE
THIS IS YOUR NIGHT
YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT
THIS IS YOUR NIGHT

CHORUS
Track Name: Oceanside85 - Gotta Go (Feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)
UNDER THE SHADOW OF MOONLIGHT
WE WENT TO THE RECORD STORE

ME, I'M MICHAEL JACKSONS' THRILLER
WE'RE RUNNING LATE FOR THE PARTY
GET THE VINYL, PUMP UP THE JAM

CHORUS
WE GOTTA GO
GO - GO - YEAH, OH

UNDER THE SHADOW OF MOONLIGHT
WE WENT TO THE RECORD STORE
YOU WANTED HEROES BY BOWIE
ME, I'M MICHAEL JACKSONS' THRILLER
HOW DO WE GET INTO THIS PLACE
THERE'S A CLOSED SIGN ON THE DOOR
I'M NOT LEAVING EMPTY HANDED
IT ONLY MAKES ME WANT IT MORE
I CAN FEEL YOUR NEEDS
OH THEY'RE CALLING OUT TO ME
THERE'S NO WAY THAT WE
ARE LEAVING HERE EMPTY HANDED
(NO, NO, NO)

CHORUS
WE GOTTA GO
GO - GO - YEAH, OH
WE GOTTA GO
GET 'EM TO DANCE
WE GOTTA GO
GO - GO - YEAH, BABY
GOTTA GO
BREAK, TAKE A CHANCE

HOW DO WE GET INTO THIS PLACE

HAVING IT ALL ALL ALLLLL YEAH

CHORUS
WE GOTTA GO
GO- GO - YEAH, BABY
GOTTA GO
GO- GO - YEAH
GO GO - YEAH
Track Name: LEBROCK - Dangerous Dreams
I'm all alone trapped in my home nowhere to run, i see no future
Just gimmie time to change my mind i know it's hard, i see right through ya
It's late at night another fight, i've been around another heartache
Where is my soul no rock n roll no where to go just fall asleep now

Have you ever seen, in your wildest dreams, paradise. Paradise
Have you ever seen, in your wildest dreams, paradise. Paradise

I dunno why we say goodbye, don't wanna die but what is living
So in the end and time again its just a trend never forgiving

And i dream that all this will get better
I won't break i won't fall i won't forget you
As the sun disappears and I'm left with my dreams
In the night i can hide in a fantasy

And i dream that all this will get better
I won't break i won't fall i won't forget you
As the sun disappears and I'm left with my dreams
In the night i can hide in a fantasy

Have you ever seen, in your wildest dreams, paradise. Paradise
Have you ever seen, in your wildest dreams, paradise. Paradise
Track Name: Zalza - Beyond Retro
Sample from "Encore" by Jay Z

I can get you BET and TRL too
You wanna be in the public, send your budget
Well fuck it, I ain't budging!
Young did it to death, you gotta love it
Record companies told me I couldn't cut it
Now look at me, all star-studded
Golfer above par like I putted
All cause the shit I uttered, was utterly ridiculous
How sick is this?
You want to bang, send Kanye change, send Just some dust
Send Hip a grip, then you got' spit
A little something like this
Track Name: LEBROCK - Call Me
Lost and alone, neon land of no return
Nowhere to hide, as the city lights burn
Faster than fire, you'd better get a gun
Cause this city is deadly, little girl you better run

So if you need me won't you call me tonight
If you're in trouble and you need me tonight

Used up and broken, did you enjoy the ride
Haven't heard from you lately, are you dying inside
Was it all that you wanted, was it more than your share
Haven't heard from you lately, does it mean you don't care

But when the lights go out and the city wakes
And you're left with only your mistakes
When all hope is lost, i can take the heat
I'm your vigilante on the streets

So if you need me won't you call me tonight
If you're in trouble and you need me tonight
Track Name: CONFRONTATIONAL - In The Line Of Fire
standing in the line of fire
in a dream you can't remember
you're out searching for the answers
to the questions you won't ask

as the city falls in darkness
shadows dance in celebration
burning fears and vindication
every freedom has its price

will you stand in line?

sold out cheap to revolution
in a war that's always raging
we're all drowning in a nightmare
as the kingdom marches on

and the night seems neverending
and the sirens keep on wailing
every lie will stand against us
as the fire burns inside

will you stand in line?

in the line of fire
Track Name: The Sweetest Condition - Deconstructing
I finally found a coterie I can get into.
A type of family I’ve chosen to belong to.
I’ll be the bullet, if you need to pull the trigger.
You break your back for me, and I’ll bleed for you.

Before we met, I was just a lonely dreamer
now we share every bad behavior.
The synchronicity is starting to scare me.
Now I’m stuck playing follow the leader.

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.
I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!

I’ll be the bullet, if you need to pull the trigger.
I try to follow every order to the letter.
From every sacrifice there comes another scar.
I’ll feed the knife if it’ll make you feel better!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.

I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.

I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!
Track Name: Hollywood Burns - Came To Annihilate (Battlejuice Remix)
Total annihilation
From another dimension
There is no hope, there is no escape
Only the pain and a brutal death.

Total annihilation
From another dimension
The entire galaxy will hear you scream.

All humans must be annihilated, annihilated, annihilated.
All humans must be annihilated, annihilated, annihilated.
All humans must be annihilated, annihilated, annihilated.
All humans must be annihilated, annihilated, annihilated.
Track Name: The Sweetest Condition - Faithless
All you know is
what you’re told.
Asking questions
breaks the mold.

You stay still to
procreate,
spreading lies
spreading hate.

Find salvation in the
book of men,
cover up your
carnal sin.

March in line.
Don’t ask why.
Every day’s a good
day to die.

You beg.
You steal.
You don’t care
how I feel.

You kneel.
You pray.
You live for
one more day.

You fight.
You fuck.
You fall
out of luck.

You bend.
You break.
You pay
for your mistakes.

You follow
every command;
fear what you don’t
understand.
Don’t believe what
you can’t see,
drown in mediocrity.

You beg.
You steal.
You don’t care
how I feel.

You kneel.
You pray.
You live for
one more day.

You fight.
You fuck.
You fall
out of luck.

You bend.
You break.
You pay
for your mistakes.
Track Name: The Neon Droid - Neon-Dioxide
When the guilty city is sleeping
When the cops in my tail for speeding
When the neon lights are shining
When the east-side gangs are fighting
When the palm trees waves in the air
When Phil hits the gated snare
When I love, when I fuck
And my .45 gets stuck

I found it's harder to hide
In my Countach at Rodeo Drive
When I bleed, when I cry
This love will never die
When I watching the sun going down
When the Synthwave rocks this town
When I ride through the night
I'm breathing: Neon-Dioxide
Track Name: Raised By Aliens - Take Control (Feat. Danii Noir)
Your horizon is on fire.
Stars killed by a dawn that only draws more blood.
In a time divide to satisfy the promises you spin,
allowed to crucify to find yourself again.

(chorus)
The bluest hue surrounds you
and colours what we are,
not fading when we fall.
A breathe of air provides you
another place to go,
a way to take control.


Fearless forgiven to cry,
a faceless form beholds a calendar of eyes.
The three words are spoken, a forward motion rushing towards us.
Inside the air is thin, our hearts are caving.
Track Name: Stephanie - Find You In Hell (End Credits)
Ill find you in hell. they cannot tell.
That you were good. you just lost your will.
" "
If no one else will. ill find you and kill.
god with a knife. to give you his life.
