    Anyone else into Synthwave music? It's sort of like a modern-ish take on late 20th-century electronic style. It uses synths/drum machines/sounds which are staples of the time.

    I got into it by listening to FM Attack, Mitch Murder, Lifelike, Droid Bishop, etc...

    The soundtrack to Drive (by Kavinsky) could be considered synthwave... If you want a sample of what it sounds like (even though all of FM Attack's songs are fairly unique):
