Batman of the Synth!


Batman and Synthwave! Seriously, how can it get better than that!? Was lucky enough to get in on the "Batman of the Synth" compilation album project and it turned out amazing. 37 artists contributed tracks, each inspired by a different Batman character. This album contains many of the very best musicians and producers working in the genre!

Here is the whole album, released by Retro Promenade, because it is solid listen from start to finish. Available to download for free (or donation). I contributed "Professor Pyg & His Dollotrons", a bizarre song for a bizarre villain.

Retro Promenade says...
What if there was a Gotham city wherein the characters you know and love don't actually physically fight each other? What if they never even physically interacted with each other?

Batman of the Synth is a complete re-imagning of the Gotham City universe in which these vigilant, these strange, and these (often-times) psychotically insane characters battle each other with music.

Instead of meeting up to fight in dark alleys at 3am, what if they all composed and produced 80s inspired retro synth music and emailed/texted/chatted each other their music tracks in attempts to one-up each other or to communicate and ask for help from each other? If that idea is too silly to wrap your head around, well we've got a helluva compilation for you...

2 Hours of Less Challenge

Some fine folks over in the Facebook synthwave groups come up with the idea of a "2 Hours of Less" challenge. As you might guess, the goal is to create a track, from silence to mastered, in two hours or less. Challenge accepted! Here is 'Two Hours Till Dusk'. Taking up every moment of the 2 hour challenge time, it may not be perfect but it turned out FAR better than I had expect. Also check out the other outstanding tracks by producers that took the challenge head on in the 2 Hours or Less SoundCloud group .

Stranger - 3 Track EP Out Now!

New, original music inspired by the Netflix series 'Stranger Things'. These are not covers, remixes or emulations of that show's fantastically retro score but music written with the mood and tone of the show in mind. 'Other Side of the Board' was originally written for a 'Stranger Things' tribute style compilation album but when the album release fell through the track was expanded into these three songs.
