For synthwave aficionados and newcomers to this music genre alike, a documentary like The Rise of The Synths, together with the debut album, The Rise of The Synths (The Official Companion Album) EP 1, should be a required primer.  Aaron Vehlinggo reviews all seven cuts of EP 1 (read it here), which features new and original tracks by the legendary Giorgio Moroder & Raney Shockne, Carpenter Brut, Dance With The Dead, OGRE, Lazerhawk, Mega Drive, and Voyag3r — out on May 1 exclusively on Bandcamp.  EP 2 will be released in June.

This album is released in support of and to raise awareness of the documentary, The Rise of The Synths, THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY about ’80s retro and electronic music, the synthwave scene, and ’80s nostalgia and audiovisual collective memories.  The film is currently in production.  This music release is not a part of their original successful Indiegogo campaign.  Stay tuned for updates on the release of EP 2!
