Retro electronic music on the radio

Retro electronic music, also known as synthwave or outrun, is a genre that emerged in the early 2000s, inspired by the electronic music of the 1980s. It features a combination of synthesizers, drum machines, and other electronic instruments, and often incorporates elements of 80s pop culture, such as sci-fi films, video games, and neon colors.

One of the most popular artists of this genre is Kavinsky, a French DJ and producer known for his track "Nightcall," which was featured in the movie "Drive." Another popular artist is The Midnight, an American duo that blends retro electronic sounds with modern production techniques. Other notable artists in the genre include Com Truise, Mitch Murder, and Gunship.

There are several radio stations that specialize in retro electronic music. Nightride FM, which bills itself as "the soundtrack to your neon-lit night drive," features a mix of synthwave, outrun, and retrowave. New Retro Wave Radio is another popular station, playing a mix of classic and contemporary retro electronic tracks. Radio Mirchi USA also has a dedicated retro electronic music station, featuring a mix of Indian and international artists.
