Synthwave Sunday

Synthwave Sunday: Scandroid, “Empty Streets” [GosT Remix]


Scandroid - Dreams of Neo-TokyoLast fall marked the debut of Scandroid, the synthwave alter-ego of electronic artist and producer Celldweller.

Now just a few months later Scandroid is back with Dreams of Neo-Tokyo, a full-length remix album featuring re-imagined versions of each of the ten vocal tracks from the debut.

The album came out this past Friday, March 31st, but today we’re excited to premiere a video accompaniment to the remix of “Empty Streets,” done by one of our absolute favorite synthwave artists: GosT.

Says the mysterious, masked GosT about the collaboration:

“The first few seconds of the vocals I heard in ‘Empty Streets’ sold me on doing this remix.  I have always been a fan of industrial and personally felt the vocals were very industrial and would work really well with a heavy beat!”

Check it out below (along with the original) and order your copy of Dreams of Neo Tokyo here (physical) and here (digital). Dance with the Dead, Waveshaper and more contribute remixes as well.

In case anyone wants to try their hand at their own Scandroid remix, there’s a contest going on through April in which you can do exactly that.
