Lakeshore Records will release two official companion EPs for the upcoming documentary The Rise of The Synths this spring. THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS EP 1 features tracks from Giorgio Moroder & Raney Shockne, Dance With The Dead, OGRE, Lazerhawk, Mega Drive, Voyag3r, and Carpenter Brut’s “Night Stalker”, which was released earlier this year. The EP will be released exclusively through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp on May 1 and through all digital providers on May 12.
The Rise of The Synths is a documentary film project exploring the synthwave music scene. The filmmakers are interviewing both new artists and classic composers who helped to create the genre. The film is currently in production after a successful Indiegogo campaign. THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS EP 2 will be released in June. Stay tuned for more album details! See the EP 1 track list below.
The latest addition to the forthcoming The Rise of The Synths companion album is Dallas-based Mega Drive! His music has been described by some as more on the brutal end of the synthwave spectrum. “He is best known for the epic track ‘Total Control’… Mega Drive takes the raw Retro-Electro sound and pushes it to new limits, constantly testing boundaries.” (NewRetroWave).
The Rise of The Synths (Official Companion Album) EP1 drops on May 1 exclusively on Bandcamp via Lakeshore Records! Details are coming soon, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
