    New Wave Retro Synthwave/1980's electronic music

    Been listening to a lot of music that sound like from the 1980's - Thanks partly because of Kung Fury. Post electronic music from the 1980's or tracks which sound like it's from the 80's but made today. I love the David Hasselhoff's take on Mitch Murder's track Enter the Fury as well. Other artist include Miami Nights 1984.

    If you don't mind music in Spanish, check out Mecano. They're a very good synthpop band from the 1980s:

    Any time!
    My knowledge of 1980s electronic music is rather limited, but here's one more: Orbital's Chime.

    Could easily mention Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and Vangelis as they are my biggest influentors from that era. Let's go for some less known tracks though

    Great thread, and lovely additions in the start OP. Mitch Murder - Heading South is just super charming and lovely in all type of ways.





    I also offer you this beauty, although its chiptune. It bears alot of resemblance to the 80's feel-good melodies.

    Anyone interested in 70-80s sound should definitely check out Sven Grünberg, by far the best electronica composer in Estonia and perhaps in Soviet Union as well.
    This one is absolutely brilliant from 1979 movie soundtrack

    Interesting creative track which I really dig. I love how dynamical this track is with all these elements, however I sometimes wonder if these background textures are all 100,00% sync. (if that's important).


    Oh, and this one.... I believe this one is way ahead of it's time @Progrez

    Made last year or so but sounds like it was released sometime in the 80s.
    Love this one!

    Just a short obscure track @Progrez




    Edit: please note that this is not a 1975 production but a 2000'ish
    Still a beauty though.
