The ultimate reference on everything Synthwave

What is Synthwave music? Where does Retro artwork come from?

Retro Synthwave is a website dedicated to the musical style called Synthwave (Retrowave or Outrun) and his particular visual world. You’ll find many explanations of these two big parts, but also about movies, series and video games inspired by the 80s. We present the pioneers of this area, between musicians and designers, but also if you are a young artist, we will propose the fact to present your works (music or design) on our website. This is intended to showcase the work of young prodigies for record companies but also for musicians who want to find someone who can be able to do some covers related to their music with a very specific style. Also, there are a lot of tracks completely essential that you can listen directly, latest releases that you musn’t miss, some fresh mixtapes, some news by categories, awesome artworks but also some exclusive interviews.

Enjoy your visit and don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our Darkwave Micro Mix

The Best of Darkwave in 9 minutes - Mixed by Space Master


After the concept of mixing cinematic universes and Synthwave music like Time Machine, Cyborg After All, Nexus Save the Queen and Stranger Kids, we decided to move on. Indeed, the Micro Mixes that we are going to produce go straight to the point, in a minimum of time while keeping the rhythm and the effectiveness of each track highlighted. The ultimate goal is to deliver the best of a style that makes up the Synthwave universe, the Darkwave. Enjoy!
