SOUND⚡WAVES Retrowave Mix

SOUND⚡WAVES Retrowave Mix

When we first posted our 90s Steeltown Logo, y'all absolutely drowned us in comments. Over a hundred to not be exact. And in the mayhem, someone requested that DJ Waves create a retro playlist to go along with the product drop.

It was a swell idea. So Waves got busy compiling a truly unique retrowave inspired playlist that somehow avoids cliche and jettisons you back in time full throttle, the skin on yer face peeling back from the speed of the time-warp, the dizzying neon blur of colours passing you by, the electronic crescendo of synth rising like a Casio keyboard induced climax until BOOM it's Friday night, 7pm, and yer standing in the isle of yer local Blockbuster desperately searching for a VHS of Days of Thunder that hasn't been rented out.

Natsukashii - a vintage Japanese Kayōkyoku playlist by Steeltown

Definitely our strangest playlist yet. Before Japanese Idols and J-Pop there was Kayōkyoku. A genre of music influenced heavily by western rock and roll and usually had easy to follow melodies, sentimental narratives and straight forward lyrics designed to be relatable to the everyday Japanese person.
