Synthwave Sunday: Perturbator, B-Sides and Remixes
Synthwave progenitor Perturbator has professed a desire to break away from his synthwave roots in favor of a dark industrial direction on his future work, but not before one last synthed out, retro splash: this past Friday (November 16th), the French artist released a two-volume compilation called B-Sides and Remixes which contains… well, you know. It’s got lots of stuff from his early days on it, much of which has been publicly available for some time but only in far-flung locations in the bowels of the internet. Even I haven’t heard most of it before, and I have spent a ton of time trawling the web for synthwave gems.
Stream both volumes of B-Sides and Remixes in full below. As a starting point you might also check out Perturbator’s remix of Mega Drive’s “I Am the Program,” which we premiered here on Synthwave Sunday in September. You can order physical copies via Blood Music’s webstore and digital downloads via their Bandcamp.
