Statickman is back with his new „Chronovisor“ album! One of South America’s most prolific and prominent Synthwave / RetroWave / New Wave / Vapourwave superheroes – since 2013 globally known for his sci-fi-synth dystopia hit „The End of The Times“ – is back with a magical new album, full of 1980s inspired songs and laser-guided melodies from an alternate neon universe.
In times when the 80s-synth-nostalgia-infused „Stranger Things“-Netflix series is the talk of the town all over the place, Chilean producer José Luis Seguel Quezada enters the limelight with a strobe-lit 9-piece album full of shimmering synthwave heat haze, italo disco melodies and lo-fi C64-minimalism. A chronovisor is an ancient artefact which is said to empower people to see past and future events – and this is the right theme for this lovely ride.
Start with the retro-futuristic „Soul of Young“ to enter Statickman’s universe: massively energetic synth arpeggios, vocoder voices and space effects – 80s nostalgia as we love it when we drive down to Key West in our yellow DeTomaso Pantera….to reach Key West Space Port, enter our space ship to get on our journey to the center of the moon, „Viaje al Centro de la Luna“, another instant synthwave classic, before we can delve into a complete „Dub Joy“ at the end.
