TV Casualty This is a must own. Every track is killer!

echosynthetic Nobody is producing synthwave that sounds like this, and in a giant pond like this that's a big compliment. Phantasmagoric is a must own for synthwave fans and pretty much anyone with good taste. Favorite track: The Other Side.
Holger Burghardt
Holger Burghardt thumbnail
Holger Burghardt Darren Jones has increasingly developped his own style, building on the earlier tribute-style music, finding his own voice. Besides "Please Stay" (a wonderful closing track of the album), "The Other Side" is another winner.

You often read the set phrase of people "looking forward" to someone’s next release, I definitely mean it, owning already his every release on Bandcamp. A vinyl release (including the download) would have been appreciated too (on a European label). Favorite track: Please Stay.

LazerShoes The cosmic sounds of 'The Void' make it seem like you're about to receive a mystical revelation from the universe. Then when 'This Moment' plays, the groovy guitar and basslines will make you want to get your groove on IRL, you know what I'm sayin'. Favorite track: This Moment (feat. Oceanside '85).
Nocturnal House

Nocturnal House Too many good songs to pick one favourite, but WOW some of the sounds on this album are reminiscent of all the best electronic musicians from Jean Michel Jarre, Yello, Kitaro, even Pink Floyd... yet still unique & very polished. Excellent!!! Favorite track: This Moment (feat. Oceanside '85).
Grimrik thumbnail
Grimrik Less 'rock', more 'classic synth' influenced, this album is again a 'must have soundtrack-like album by 20SIXhundred! Unlike many other SW artists that only slightly grab 80s musical influences & rely on imagery, this artist REALLY evokes 80s atmospheres that take you back to these days! Especially like the more calm tracks!

The fourth full length album by 20SIX Hundred combines more progressive rock flavoured synthwave, steeped in retro-futurism. From outrun to giallo, classic rock to ambience, PHANTASMAGORIC is the most ambitious album from 20SIX Hundred yet.

Track Name: Ataraxia (feat. Oceanside '85)
In the space between the lines of reality
You know I will be waiting
When this world makes me leave
Use your energy to find me
I wont hide my love

Look in my eyes
Gaze through the shell into me
You know me well
Baby do u feel me

Ive been waiting for millenias
Just to touch your flesh
You were out there somewhere
And now I have you again

Another time
You look so familiar
Another place
Gaze through my shell to me

*words and vocals by Oceanside '85
Track Name: This Moment (feat. Oceanside '85)
In this moment
If the sky goes dark
And the stars fall
Let's burn the last joint
That there ever was
Right where we stand
Let this be forever

If there never was a tomorrow
Let's love like today was our last chance
To burn this down
And make it count

'Cause you are the future that I'm dreaming of
I feel the depth of your grace
But tomorrow isn't promised
So I only need this moment
This moment is all I need

I only need this moment
This moment is all I need
I only need this moment
Cause your here with me

You know our time is short
We are but dust and bones
We are but a blip on the radar of the universe
If that is all we want but I want more
I want it all
In this very moment

I'll be your candle
I burn for this moment
This moments all i need
'Cause I only need this moment
This moment is all I need (its all I need)

oooo ohhhh
I burn for this moment
oooo yayayaya oooo
ya ya ya ya ya
