Night Drive Speed Limits

By mechlo on May 1, 2016 9:17 pm

This week I pulled out every synthwave/outrun trope I could think of. Minor key? Check. 4 to the floor beat? Check. Rhythmically slavish bass line? Check. Basic melody with a 80s Roland synth? Check. Random arp dropped in for good measure? Check. Title consisting of either "Night" or "Drive"?

This totally works--great bass ostinato, and you could put almost anything on it and have it work.  As it is, you've put some very strong and compelling stuff over the top.  Well done!

Somehow it reminds me of Around The World by Daft Punk.
