Yesterday on the 14 April 2020, Flash Arnold released a new track called “Running Wild” after 4 years of being silent!
Flash Arnold is quite a mysterious Synthwave artist, he actually hitted hard the scene years ago by releasing some 80s kick ass jams on SoundCloud.
Flash Arnold is also known for his collaboration on Perturbator‘s popular track “Sexualizer“.
After vanishing from the Synthwave scene 4 years ago… he comes back out of nowhere and releases some 80s hot action track with powerful electric guitar called “Running Wild”.

Since we are all stuck at home with the Coronavirus lockdown, The Midnight announced few days ago a Remix Contest to help boredom during those hard times.
They let artists choose between 4 tracks, “Los Angeles”, “Explorers”, “The Comeback Kid” and “River of Darkness.
Remixes are quite fun to make usually, it’s a good way to show composition creativity with vocals.
It’s actually one of Lueur Verte’s favorite exercise to do, as he did many remixes in the past, it was a pretty good challenge to make specially knowing that there was a one week deadline!

Lueur Verte actually finished his entry for the contest in just 4-5 days.
You can listen to the remix below and compare it to the original track right under the remix.
Original track by The Midnight:
Terminator has always been a source of inspiration for many Synthwave artists, not only for its incredible retro futuristic atmosphere but also for its dark and epic soundtrack.
Brad Fiedel’s work is very inspiring and has definitely marked a big step in the Retrofuture/Cyberpunk genre.
French artist Lueur Verte did a remake of the “Terminator Theme”, with this work, he makes his own tribute with some re-arrangement of the track.

Skynet’s cyber war representation fits very well with Lueur Verte’s “Terminator Theme”.
The Endoskeleton has always been such a fascinating character, his strength and determination are feared by all.

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!
