Synthwave music has seen a resurgence in recent years, with the genre becoming more popular than ever before. This can be attributed to its unique blend of retro-futuristic sounds and its ability to evoke nostalgia.
Synthwave is often associated with the iconic Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer, which was used by many popular artists in the 1980s. Today there are a couple of software synth developers who recreated its legendary sound, Arturia and Cherry Audio to name a few.
Synthwave is more than just a nostalgic throwback to the past as it brings back memories of classic films, TV shows, and especially video games from that era while also providing an exciting and modern take on these classic sounds. It has become a sonic identity for many musicians and artists who are looking for a way to express their individuality and creativity through music.
Synthwave elements can be heard in various genres such as electronic, synthpop, and even heavy metal or rock music. As it continues to gain popularity, synthwave will likely remain an important part of modern music culture for years to come.
The 1980s were a time of great change in the music industry and the decade produced some of the most iconic songs ever made.
