After listening to "Retrowave" for years now I thought I could try to make some stuff by myself, so I did. And it's a lot of fun creating this kind of music. It's very easy to produce in my opinion, very simple (simple beats, simple melodies), but the result is always cool if you ask me. Turns your mood into happy. Here are two of my first bunch of tracks. Let me know what you think.
Made in a couple of hours.

Thanks guys! I guess it means something when veterans in music say it's good.
And it's good to know that you can create something in 4-5 hours which sounds not too bad.
I made another one 2 days ago, here it is:
Not really sure if the bass is too intense, but according to the feedback so far there's no way to turn the bass down.
I think it's ok. If I would turn the volume or lower frequency down it would be too low. What do you think?

Even a veteran of trolling gives you a thumbs up. ^^
I don't think you need to dull the bass. Just had an idea to add some faint sweeping synth (maybe even some synth wind noises here and there) in the background to fill the soundscape but this is crisp and clear, dunno it would work. Interesting work, nice reminder of the days of Miami Vice. Def' a thumbs up.

Danke, lieber "veteran of trolling"!
Yes, I think you're right, so I left the bass and moved on to the next track.

Takes off into a catchy tune after the intro. And it's easy to picture cars on a city highway at night, zipping past street lights while there are the city lights in the background - like in the last track Night Drive. Nicely done.

This is some great stuff there, mate!

There's some more stuff right here:
And as a ninja I wanted to create some "ninja music" in Sythwave, but I'm not sure about the result. Should I make an intro (with wind and stuff like this), a sequence and maybe an outro? I decided not to do so because I don't want the track to become too long and I think it's not bad, even if there could be more "punch". What do you think? Still WIP and need more work, or at least ok?
