Rain

Biography

Born on November 30th, 1993 in Kiev, Ukraine. Since childhood, I have loved listening to music, I especially liked Eurodance music  from the 90s. Now I feel a strong sense of nostalgia for those times. I also like science fiction and futurism in general. I love cyberpunk films, my favorite is Blade Runner, it inspired me to write my first album - Cyber.  As I said, I have always loved music, but I never really considered writing any as I have no musical education. However, in 2017 I decided to install a music sequencer on my computer, just for fun, it was interesting. Since then, this activity has become my life, from which I take great pleasure. I liked what I was doing and I decided to share it. In 2018 I signed a contract with the Ukrainian label Moon Records (album Cyber and two singles.), and in 2020 I accepted a new challenge - Retro Reverb Records, where my debut release was the track Eternity. I believe that I will be able to realize all my ideas and do my best.

Unfortunately, people are not immortal, but music will always be. Music is my legacy.

Dark Smoke Signal

Biography

Dark Smoke Signal is synthwave artist and producer Alex Pope from the new music hotbed of Bristol, UK.

Alex started playing guitar from the age of 10, performing in various rock and metal bands with laughable monikers throughout the 90s and noughties. After graduating from Bristol with a degree in Audio Engineering, he started producing and mixing local artists which gave him the taste to produce his own material.

Discovering synthesizers proved a turning point and the obsessive nerd in Alex moved from 6 strings to keys, filters and envelopes. The neon world of Synthwave and artists such as Kavinsky, Gunship, Carpenter Brut and The Midnight provided the perfect genre and inspiration...the rest is history.

As an 80s child, Dark Smoke Signal is heavily influenced by pop culture from this era and this shows in his music. His well-received debut track for www.youthmusic.org.uk, 'The Big Stage' was released in summer 2018. Three follow up singles display some of the broad range of influences on his sound; 'ED-209' takes a Darksynth turn with its Dystopian theme; 'Thunder Road' is a throbbing ball of energy flambéed in 80's hair metal guitar and latest, 'December Rose' is a six and a half minute epic Synthwave love story.

With extensive international radio airplay across some of Electronica’s highly rated programme’s and first solo shows under his belt, it's been a promising first few months. Dark Smoke Signal has been featured on some of Synthwave's most notable sites and blogs: Synthzone, Synth Heaven, Komputa Krush, Brash Magazine and Synth Redneck to name a few. His music has also been licenced out in promotional material for 'The Swamp Thing' Monster Truck.

In early 2019, Ever Synth the 80s presenter Joe Ward nudged a track in front of the guys at Retro Reverb Records and it transpired to be the perfect union. Dark Smoke Signal and RRR are now working together on his debut full length release out later this year which is sure to see him explode further out of the burgeoning retro-future music scene.

Delta Wave 82

Biography

Delta Wave 82 [Jussi Lahtinen (born December 13th, 1982) from Lahti, Finland) is an 80`s film, rock, pop music re-creator and an artist. He is influenced by composers and artists such as Harold Faltermeyer, Paul Hertzog, Bill Conti, Dwight David, Alan Silvestri, Bon Jovi, Prince, Michael Jackson,Toto, Phil Collins etc.

His first experience with electronic music happened in (1995) when he got his first 486 PC and wanted to make music. He was mesmerized with the possibilities of what tracker music could provide and before he knew it, he was making music of his own…. Two years later he began to play bass guitar in a punk rock band (1997). Eventually punk switched to funk and all that bass slapping opened a whole new world for him. Between playing a bass on a funk rock band (2001-2003) he and his friend had an insane 80s synth/funk project at his friends home studio and they experimented with absolutely every possible retro genre of those times, but the time wasn't right back then , because the whole Retrowave genre hadn't been discovered and therefore wasn't popular. Many people at the time thought WTF are you guys doing?

After playing bass guitar for 10 years, he wanted to learn how to play electric guitar and thought what better way to learn than putting together an instrumental rock band". Inspired by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci, the development in his song writing hit a huge milestone and soon the guys were playing live shows and recorded a demo with Crying Illusion (2007).

After the band broke up, Jussi decided to write some metal music and he composed/wrote an alternative metal album with his band Godlike (2012) (In which he is the main vocalist) and after that he joined a stoner metal band Lightsucker (2013) as a bassist. Both metal bands have recording contracts and are still active. Jussi is also currently composing music for games and is studying media content design at Lahti Institute Of Design (2018-2022).

After goofing around with 80`s synth riffs on Facebook in 2018, he decided to continue that 2002-2004 journey of making super tight 80`s music. The project began in January 2019 and on November 15th 2019 he released his debut album “Jungle Warfare. It consisted of 80`s synth, funk and hard rock songs. The album has 16 songs, which are filled with hardcore-80`s-ninja-action-midnight-driving-vigilante" feel. In early 2020 he released 2 singles, Escape Plan and Follow Your Heart.

Now he is a proud member of the Retro Reverb Records family and will release his debut EP with RRR this year! The EP will be heavily 80s funk influenced, so you can expect nothing but great synth grooves, cool basslines and tight drums on this one!

As for his greatest influences he wants to mention his big sister , who is 12 years older and showed him Karate Kid, Beverly Hills Cop and Ghostbusters on VHS when he was 6 years old. Those films blew his mind and the 80`s films and music really hit his consciousness. Favorite films: Beverly Hills Cop, Predator, Ghostbusters, Karate Kid, Lethal Weapon, Mad Max 2, Rocky 3, RoboCop, The Last Dragon, The Running Man, Blade Runner, Back To The Future, Die Hard, Top Gun and Aliens.
