Back in the era of C64, E.T. and nuclear threats, boys used to dream of being as cool as the Fall Guy – or at
least wished they could live with Jody Banks. They drove black Trans Ams, fought on the grid like Flynn and
flew the Airwolf. They were Missing in Action and listened to digital sounds which could be heard comingout of their own bedrooms more and more.
The Saint was one of those kids. In the middle of the 80s he got his first Keyboard. Since that time music
was his constant companion.
He played keys, guitars and drums in several metal bands. And now he’s creating the soundtrack to his

Coming from a family of six brothers all of whom are involved in music. It was inevitable that he would reconnect with the music from his youth, which his mother used to play to him in her car. Like many he got reinfused with the music of his youth by Drive, Stranger things and the re-make of Bladerunner, more recently. Cybertronix started out at Timeslaverecordings as a founder but decided to go it alone when he moved to Sicily and started RetroReverbRecords with the other co-founder Alex Vecchietti. Cybertronix has released Four singles so far: Soundwave, Lunar Rising, Cummunic8 and Charlie. However, he has a whole album of tunes ready to be released soon. Cybertronix is also part of the duo Neonborn #80'slivin #siciliansynth #supportthescene.
Alex Vecchietti was born in Palermo in 1985, where he currently resides.
For family reasons he lived in London from the age of 6 to the age of 14, becoming perfectly bilingual
and where he was introduced to the London music scene.
Upon returning to Italy, during high school years, he began to regularly perform live at 15 and continued

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 https://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.
