The Next Peak Vol. II (Twin Peaks Tribute)


Last month Retro Promenade, Lucy Black, and a whole host of other fine people in the synthwave community released The Next Peak Vol. I, a Twin Peaks tribute compilation album.  The album got some really great write-ups all over the internet. Sadly, I didn't come across the project until after the deadline to get in on it. However, the album is AMAZING! It is a truly fantastic collection of artists and the compilation even rode high as the best selling album on Bandcamp for several days.

While volume 1 focused on covers of music from the television series and movie, volume 2 features remixes and reworkings of Twin Peaks music.  OF COURSE I JUMPED ON THAT!

The Next Peak Vol. II came out this week and it is magnificent! I am proud to be apart of the album right along side with fantastic synthwave artists Protector 101, Gridscape, 20SIX Hundred... all of the artists are great and put together some unique takes on the music. Check it out!

Also be on the lookout February 17th, 2015 for Vol. 3 which will featuring original tracks inspired by the iconic show (btw, how excited are you all for the return of Twin Peaks to television!?).

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 .

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 ea

Blood - New Album Available Now!

My new album 'Blood' is out today! Another 1980s inspired retrosynth album, this time pulling inspiration from 80s vampire films like Near Dark and Fright Night. The whole concept was kicked off by the track 'Two Hours Till Dusk' that I wrote and produced as part of the Synthwave Producers "2 Hours or Less" challenge on SoundCloud. Surprised by the tone of the track I decided to expand the idea into 'Blood'. Dropping the two hour restriction, of course (turned into more like 7 months). 'Blood' features remastered versions of 'Two Hours Till Dusk" and well as "Professor Pyg and the Dollotrons" (renamed simply "Dollotron") previously released on the Batman of the Synth compilation album. "Night Chill", a personal favorite, was also previously released on the EMG 2.0 compilation album though written specifically for this album. You can find several more original, never before heard songs that I feel
