⸸CoughCool⸸ In a sea of synth artists, it's easy to overlook a lot of really excellent releases. Powernerd delivers the goods while maintaining a unique identity. His use of dubstep is minute but blissful. There are way too many instances of awe-inspiring electronics on here to go through. Just get this in your ears Favorite track: Apeirophobia.

Cyber Djinn Album technically surprising by its originality in the sounds, the beauty of the melodies and the definitely intoxicating rhythm. Radically different from Far for Human and this is not to displease me, au contraire. Favorite track: Apeirophobia.

Take it down, take it all down... rip the sheets, the streets, the skins, the sins, all down. It’s nothing but new after this town.

We’ve been moored to this illusion, this mirage, for thousands of years. Time to cast off, sail away through Ibiza past Kenya and then we’ll send ya to salvation, the new creation. Dystopia wasn’t much fun, was it? Always looking for more weren’t ya?

Techno, techno, techno, techno, people shout it but do they know? The boat is dancing and swaying and the initial taste of the new life is richer than butter, and the heat is like pancakes. A techno masterclass for the nerds today, this is a ghetto hall pass for schools out forever we never turning back.

The oppression was a long and tiresome lesson we know inside and out, we know it all! Young gifted and out for attack if anyone messes with this frequency.

Governments and their laws and hierarchy and corporate t-shirts will be nothing on our nation! Feel these vibrations?

We’ve taken what we want and what we want most is you, you and your heart of hearts beating the darkness with desire.

Days didn’t feel like this before with the suits and their sponsors, dinner jacket monsters at play. No, this is more and we feel it. We are the warriors from the street theatres with more bruises and less blood but all for the good as we have come out teachers. Clean, new, wondrous, powerful.

Come with us, the highest state awaits... but only if you can create as we are no longer the big boys toys, those we’ve destroyed.

So forget time, run from it, run to us and the new world for it cannot shine without you!

May we present the new world, Powernerd’s brand new electrically positive album ‘Destroy to Create’ featuring Dana Jean Pheonix and an exclusive remix by Baldocaster. It is another step into the future of Synthwave for a man who’s flesh and mechanics don’t understand the reverse function.
