Does anyone here at the Rewind listen to Retrowave/Synthwave music? If so, what are some of your favorite artists/tunes?

Here are a few of my favorites:

Dream Fiend - Night Flight
The Midnight - Sunset
FM-84 - Outatime

Wow, totally loved all three tunes, thanks for sharing!

Do you listen any aor music?
If you do, check out this swedish band Houston which i think is one of the best modern aor bands.
Their music is not far away from those retrowave songs.

Houston - I´ m Coming Home

Houston - Truth Slips

Le Matos- Sarah

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSlG4gEnTlc

Pure Secks- Dangerous Curves

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7WRIPSANrE

Mental Minority- Under the Stars

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m1NsdotRt4

Betamaxx- Only in the Movies

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOMbs0hxIFs

and so many more. Retro/Synthwave is the only modern music I listen to. Yes, there are many hacks just trying to sound like Jan Hammer, but there are a lot of unique talents and true synth masters as well, making the kind of music where you just close your eyes and let the 80's images flash by.

Love the Le Matos tune "Sarah"! Thanks for sharing.
So, it´s from the same guys who did the Turbo Kid soundtrack?

Yeah, I think they had a track on there. Another group worth checking out is Powerglove who did the soundtrack for the 80's inspired Far Cry 3 DLC game Blood Dragon.
