First transmission of the decade. Hello 2020!
My first release of the year is also my first collaboration track. I made this combination of Synthwave and 80’s pop rock and felt it definitely needed some vocals. I sent it to Detroit based Nerdcore rapper Mark Cooper and man, Mark delivered! “On the line” feat. Mark Cooper is out now! Stream on Spotify, download on Bandcamp. Find it on your favorite platform! Be sure to follow Mark on Spotify!
This track will be on my 4th album with other collaboration tracks featuring various vocalists.
I’m releasing new music every month so hit the follow button on the Runaway Droid Spotify profile to get monthly fresh retro on your Release Radar! The next track out in February will be “Last Defence”, a game soundtrack type dark instrumental piece. Pre-Save to Spotify here.
I already had my first live of the year on January 3rd at Helsinki Synth City – Back to Fiesta with Arcdiv, Desert Monolith, Kizunaut & Glowline. Our Helsinki Synth City brother Ace Buchannon had to cancel his show so I did my best to fill in. I had 3 days to rehearse my set, which I had completely forgotten to keep up as I’ve been making new music. My synth playing in the dark with sunglasses on was all over the place, but I got to play On the Line and South Beach Chase Sequence live for the first time.
Helsinki Synth City – Winter Warmer
The next live show is just around the corner! On Saturday February 1st I’ll join on stage with my friends Millennium Falck, Levinsky & Glowline to perform at Helsinki Synth City – Winter Warmer held at Tiivistämö in Suvilahti, Helsinki. Get tickets: Tiketti.fi
I try to change my set a bit for every live so maybe some unreleased material will be heard or another never played live before track will make it in the set.
I think I’ll bring back the silver space suit for this one.
Here’s the event playlist for a little sampler of what’s to come:
