TIMECOP1983 – Night Drive +2 (2018)

As you may know, retro synthwave music is one of the guilty pleasures of this blog. After the excellent new album from TIMECOP1983 featured here few days ago, many of you asked for his debut ”Night Drive”, including two bonus tracks.

TimeCop1983 – Faded Touch (2021)

We already featured here an album from TimeCop1983, a Dutch musician / producer considered one of the first, forerunner artists of the retro ’80s / synthwave movement.

This beautifully nostalgic album is catchy and heartfelt, pumping out what may be Timecop1983’s most moving album to date, combining the ’80s arcade video-game culture and Miami Vice incidental music with radio-ready rock&pop / lite AOR.
Emotive music that takes you back to a lovely era and it’s like a soundtrack to your memories…
