David Rotenburger Diversity is the key on this absolutely astounding album that I just discovered today thanks to Jeff Herrington. Such a variety of musical styles and instruments used here all inspired by 80's music. This is what I call "good vibrations"! Retro is king on this release! Love the guitar work on "City of Light"! Favorite track: City Of Light.

Prabu Abraham Worthy followup to Dreamwaves 1. The vocal samples and the analog feel distinguish this record from most of the other robotic sounding synth music you find elsewhere. This is pure 80s synth retrofuturistic awesomeness. Favorite track: New Wave Funk.

kmxexii Another hip journey through radio waves, this one tending toward synthpop and funk. I also hear more guitar accents, with "City" being his solo showcase, though it's also in the simplistic outrun of "Dangerline". "Electric Lady" is a funky, smooth portrait; a serenade to synthetic seductresses? I like the downbeat, introspective "Nightdrive", but the goofy vocoder-ridden and orgasmic sample-laden "L.A. Nights" and its electro is my fave, paralleling the earlier "New Wave Funk" with its samples. Favorite track: L.A Nights.

Listen to the Neon Vandal "Synthetix Sunday" radio interview here:

"This is some seriously brilliant atmospheric synth magic with a wonderful and richly explored synthscape that is thoroughly immersive. A stunning experience."(Nightdrive) -Synthetix F.M

"Far more loyal to the old school electronic sound are artists like Neon Vandal, who sounds like a coke binge in a vintage arcade!" - "There's nostalgia here -It's the sound of our old Atari, Sega Megadrive and VHS tapes" - It's Always Snowing In Miami.

"There are diverse sounds and a blend of all kinds of 80's influences on this album, and it works to very decent effect. There was a creative and nostalgic mind at work here, and certainly one with a broad range of enthusiasm for the various synth styles of the era." -Oceanic

"It opens with that perfect dark synth sound I love, complete with undulating currents of warm back alley synth keys. Some sweet, (the cold yet sympathetic melody is a foil ) Sounds like something vaguely sad has happened" (Nightdrive) - Kempster

"Neon Vandal is smashing up all kinds of action in his great new track 'New Wave Funk' -The synths rock with a salacious groove that is undeniably infectious. I really love the use of vocals in this piece, totally rocking" - Synthetix FM.

"Neon Vandal's sound will take the scene by storm. A definite one to watch!"- NewRetrowave Records

" Channelling all the right influences from Afrika Bambataa,Twilight 22,Egyptian Lover to Paul Hardcastle this track is just pure electric energy served with a side of sensuality"(L.A Nights) - Synthetix FM
