Batman Of The Synth // Retro Promenade // Free Download

Retro Promenade is an online magazine based on Austin, Texas, that showcases the best new eighties and ninenties inspired retro synthwave music.

Their new official site may currently be under construction, but there’s a lot to check on the magazine’s Facebook page and even more on their Bandcamp, where there are many hair-raisingly awesome releases available for name your price download, most of which are themed compilations.
The one that immediately got my attention is Batman Of The Synth, a 37-track compilation about the Dark Knight and a synth-style re-imagining of the Gotham City universe.
From RP’s Bandcamp:
What if there was a Gotham city wherein the characters you know and love don’t actually physically fight each other? What if they never even physically interacted with each other?

Batman of the Synth is a complete re-imagning of the Gotham City
universe in which these vigilant, these strange, and these (often-times)
psychotically insane characters battle each other with music.

Instead of meeting up to fight in dark alleys at 3am, what if they all
composed and produced 80s inspired retro synth music and
emailed/texted/chatted each other their music tracks in attempts to
one-up each other or to communicate and ask for help from each other? If
that idea is too silly to wrap your head around, well we’ve got a
helluva compilation for you… 
Also available for purchase on the page is an accompanying poster print designed by John Sparxx.

You really shoudn’t miss this nor the couple of Twin Peaks themed compilations that are already doing very well. RP looks like the go-to place when it comes to retro synth and it’s obvious that more exciting stuff are about to come, so make sure to keep an eye on it.
