Synthwave - All the Many Styles

Postby FreeWave » Wed Jan 16, 2019 8:54 pm

So I spent most of last year exploring the Synthwave Genre. While I'd known it was a cool community for awhile I really did some deep exploring into the different styles and inspirations for the many different musicians out there. In the end my blog showed a lot more than most fans knew was out there.

This blog is also reflect in the 2 essential album charts i made. ... 6554435585 Those show the top artists and albums of each. Both are a great starting point for getting to know what is a pretty active and diverse community.
My Weblinks. Check out the Synthwave Styles Blog and RYM Box Set Blog for even more Genre Guides. NWO's and My New Wave Favorites.
