Violet Mist - Cyberwave

Cyberwave by Violet Mist

Futuristic synthwave

Subexotic have been on a roll recently with several releases really hitting my spot. This third album from Joseph Kindred (aka Jozef K) under his dystopian, synthwave guise Violet Mist, is one of them. Bubbling under for its 35 minute play time, the hypnotic impact is achieved through Downtempo instrumentals, even when the rhythms on some tracks (like Precipice 2096 or Data Modelling) spike. The vibe is dark throughout but never malevolent and while the synths carry a debt to the 80s, a futuristic vision prevails.
