In the 80s, there was a genre called Spacesynth or Space Disco.
Using Drum Machines and slathering of synthesizers using heavy bass arps (known sometimes as 'Koto Bass'), this amazing music sounded out of this world.... see what i did there?, ay,ay
Bands such as Koto and Lazerdance were huge in the late 80s with this amazing new sound.
The sound is still going and in the next couple of posts i will showcase a few bands...
If you have never heard of this type of music, your in for a pleasant surprise exp if you like synth music...
SYNTHESIS - GALACTIC DREAM (2012)
From the Spacesynth website (with thanks) =
Synthesis is a spacesynth project from Poland by Robert Ludwinski.
Robert was born in Warsaw in 1980.
He has been interested in music since
he was a child. At the beginning of the 90's he heard "Changing Times" from Laserdance and decided to create music in the same style
You sometimes find Spacesynth songs on compilations by record label ZYX (Italo Disco)
