CRUISE – A Synthwave Retrowave Mix for Opacarophiles

Today’s synthwave offering is CRUISE – A Synthwave Retrowave Mix for Opacarophiles. Astral Throb focuses on and curates synthwave soundtracks as a nostalgic homage for the 1980s culture, attempting to capture the era’s atmosphere and celebrate it.

Something I miss here in the post-Ellis world are his daily ambient music posts. This week I’m going to share some of the things I listen to while I write. If the response is positive, or it doesn’t turn into too much work, I’ll keep doing it. Maybe feature a different channel each week. The intention is to reach out a little bit, and share a part of my day.

I like synthwave because it reminds me of 80’s movie soundtracks. Good movies, bad movies, they were all using the same electronica. That was the period when I was in art school and college as well, and first pursuing the dream to become a writer. When I started watching dead mall channels on YouTube as research for a project, a lot of them used synthwave to score their videos. I realized it was a perfect generic soundtrack for a lot of my creative work, and has become the default background music in my workspace.
