Mega Drive’s Seas of Infinity Album Is Out Now on All Digital Outlets!

Mega Drive: Seas of Infinity | Lakeshore Records

Vehlinggo premieres the chilled-out, vapory “In Dreams,” my favorite cut from an album that trends toward the darker, more kinetic side of things. The first part of the instrumental number is a full-on melodic and meditative movement, culminating in an interesting surprise for the latter half. – Vehlinggo

Gear up, and prepare your ears for some ruthless synth and beats. “Godspeed Us To The Stars” is the quintessential sound we have grown to love from Mega Drive. – NewRetroWave

Lakeshore Records is pleased to release Mega Drive’s new album, “Seas Of Infinity” out now digitally on all digital outlets!  For those of you who haven’t had a chance to preview or listen to the album in full, check it out below.  “Seas of Infinity” is the first album since Mega Drive’s 2015 album, Hardwired V1.4 and 2014’s 198XAD.  

The cover design is by John Bergin, Lakeshore’s Art Director who has designed the label’s most recognized albums and packaging including the synth-centric EMMY®-winning Mr. Robot Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 soundtrack.

Happy International Synthesizer Day!

Happy International Synthesizer Day!  On this occasion, we take a moment to recognize the many examples of the impact which the synthesizer has made to modern film and TV music: many of your favorite scores wouldn’t even exist without it.  And, we can’t go through the day without recognizing Bob Moog, founder of Moog Music, who was an American engineer and pioneer of electronic music.  He is best known as the inventor of the Moog synthesizer.

Check out some of Lakeshore Records‘ recent electronic scores, from ambient and moody cues (The Handmaid’s Tale, Before The Flood, Distance Between Dreams, “Stranger Things”), to rhythmic and danceable tracks (Patriots Day“Mr. Robot”, Nerve, The Rise of The Synths EP1, Crawl Into The Narrow Caves).  Some scores were even produced from vintage analog synthesizers and sequencers, such as Distance Between Dreams and “Stranger Things”.  What are some of your favorite synthscores from Lakeshore?
