RIYL: College, Timecop1983, FM-84
Label: Timeslave Recordings
Kid Neon encompassesÂ everything I love about synthwave, a surplus of 80s decadence. Â Far-reaching guitar solos drenched in special effects, 8-bit metronomic drum tracks, obscure movie quote samples and a lavish display of synths. Â Oh, the synths on this thing, pounding and pulsating straight into your cerebral cortex until there’s nothing left in there but Pop Rocks and Fun Dip. Â Darker Days, Kid Neon’s debut, could easily be the soundtrack to some forgotten B-movie sci-fi, but the glossy studio production holds these tracks firmly inÂ 2017.
Timeslave Recordings only made 100 of these, and I can see this quickly becoming a highly sought-after gem, so I wouldn’t wait too long to grab one. Â Check out some of the tracks below and get some gorgeous black vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.
The stunning debut by Kid Neon is available as a limited edition first vinyl pressing of just 100 copies, featuring fully remastered tracks from the FutureSounds series, including Asteroid Boy and Code Red.
Shipping will begin on or around 1st November 2017.
