STARFORCE – First Relic

Last year STARFORCE released an album called “First Relic“.

This album gathers a selection of the STARFORCE very first tracks from 2012. They were done before the debut album “Omniversal Oscillations“.

As a bonus track there is also “Alpine Glow Part II“.

The first part can be found on “Omniversal Oscillations“.

With this album you can enter the innocent touch and time before Synthwave evolved to its modern state.

The sound on “First Relic” represents the pure and retro STARFORCE sound from where the sound exploration initially started.

You can now listen to “First Relic” on Spotify and other digital stores!

Make sure to follow STARFORCE on his Spotify artist page for latest updates and releases.


Featured Artist : ROBORG

It’s been a long time since there was no “Featured Artist” posts on the website and it’s been also a long time since I haven’t heard something as good as the new single from ROBORG.

ROBORG is a Cyberpunk/Darksynth artist from Prague, Czech Republic, he is actually in the “Synthwave” scene since 2016 but his notoriety is sadly not as big as his talent.  

ROBORG has delivered with his new single “Creator’ an amazing cyberpunk inspired work, a true masterpiece which is really close to Perturbator‘s composition skill. “Creator” is actually a single from ROBORG’s upcoming new album.

I have heard some demos from the upcoming album from ROBORG and all I can say is that it’s really promising!

Definitely one of the best cyberpunk artist to keep an eye on!

You can buy “Creator” and ROBORG’s other works here.

You can follow and support ROBORG on Soundcloud, Facebook, Instagram and Spotify.

Crystalica EP – Limited Edition Cassette

It’s been 6 years since Lueur Verte has released his first EP “Crystalica” and for the first time ever a limited edition cassette release is now available via Playmaker Media store.

Playmaker exists as a blog and as an independent label since 2009, it’s definitely one of the pioneers of this scene , they are specialized in cassette and vinyl releases since the past few years. Playmaker has been working with many big names of the scene and their quality of work is as big as their passion.

Head over Playmaker store to grab your copy of this classic release by Lueur Verte.

Limited Edition of 50, Pro-tapes in clear purple shell with colorful artwork.

Don’t miss the chance to get your hands on these beauties before they are sold out!

For digital download head over Aphasia Records store.

Featured Artist : Arcis

Arcis is a talented artist from Oslo, Norway which produces music with an authentic 80s feeling, there’s a lot of artists trying to emulate that authentic 80s sound but Arcis is definitely one of the best for successfully achieving it.

From the cold lands of Norway to the hottest summer days in Miami, Arcis’s music is intensively nostalgic and gives perfectly that Miami Vice feeling. This is the kind of music you want to listen while driving an offshore boat during the sunset.

The production behind Arcis’s music is really impressive, the choice of the instruments, the melodies, there’s a deep composition with serious skills. It’s hard to believe this was made nowadays, you can’t tell if the music is from the 80s or 2016.

Arcis released a fantastic EP in June named “Waves”, which is my favorite one from him, all the tracks are pure gems, one track from the EP got quite a lot of attention and popularity and became the “hit” from the release.

That track is “Speed Boat Theme” and the title fits perfectly with the feeling this track gives.

I also really love the track “Sunset Beach“. The EP got a stunning artwork made by Forces Creative.

Arcis really knows how to deliver quality content.

You can buy the Waves EP on Arcis’s Bandcamp page, and his other great releases that i didn’t mention.

Make sure to follow Arcis on SoundCloud and Facebook.


Featured Artist : Violaine

For the first time we are introducing a “Featured Artist” section on the website, it will features some new talents and our favorites artists of the moment.
We start today with a talented girl from Paris, “Violaine”.

I recently discovered her music on Soundcloud and I was pretty amazed by the production and the overall quality.

There’s a very deep nostalgic feeling trough her work, it reminds me of the Valerie Collective and the early Synthwave movement type of music.

It’s definitely an artist to keep an eye on !

Here’s my favorite track from Violaine :

Men Like You

So much nostalgia in those synths melodies, the bass is just amazing.

Judge by yourself.


Make sure to follow Violaine on SoundCloud and Facebook.


Lueur Verte – Trinity

Lueur Verte is back with a new single, a Cyberpunk inspired track full of futuristic synths which create a whole new soundscape that Lueur Verte never explored before. A futuristic city and a mysterious masked girl, that sounds just like an epic story, the journey is starting here.

“Trinity” is available as Name Your Price download on Lueur Verte’s Bandcamp page.

Artificial Afterlife Compilation

There is something new and exciting on the Aphasia’s Bandcamp page and it’s a compilation ! Artificial Afterlife is not the sequel of Futura Compilation which was our first compilation made by Aphasia’s artists back in 2012. Artificial Afterlife is a very special compilation because the concept behind the idea and the artists line-up was curated by STARFORCE. So this is basically a compilation by Starforce featuring its favorite artists, who have been asked to compose exclusive tracks for the compilation.

Artificial Afterlife brings something fresh and very interesting to listen to, there is a great variety of atmospheres which define Starforce’s taste. The choice of the artists is nicely made. A mix of the biggest names in the scene along with some amazing underrated talents.

This compilation is definitely a great way to discover new music and artists, especially when it’s a Free Download release !

You can listen and download the Artificial Afterlife compilation right here.
