TungstenWhale I believe this album has introduced me well to synthwave and related genres, and at such an excellent price! Favorite track: The TCR - Pink Izod.

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 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).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
