SHARE: another compilation series

Postby Passing_Stranger » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:39 pm

Hi everyone! As everybody seems to be posting one series of 1980s music or another, let me join in too. A long, long time ago (in 2014, to be precise) I was doing my own series called "perfect Magic Electronic" - wanted to gather all my favourite tracks of the decade, synth-based or wholly electronic. The concept got watered down very soon to encompass most of "New Wave" subgenres. I managed to do 6 volumes, 40 tracks in each, and got them shared through some torrent tracker. Started to do the 7th volume - but some thing or other got in the way and it all came to an end. Not that this was intentional, I still harbour thoughts of continuing it - but there are always things to do (and not to do :D ), and also is there any point in doing it, really? Though the series received its share of attention, I regularly find its volumes (several or all) on p2p services. Never fails to make me smile. Recently a friend asked me to send him the volumes he didn't have - and I uploaded them all just for the hell of it. And now why not to share them with people here?

Not flac or any other lossless, just mp3 320 kbps. I tried to get the files from vinyl or early CD releases, but it wasn't always possible so there may be some inconsistencies with the sound. Not very important with mp3s, surely.

Volume 1 - https://we.tl/t-qjay4tcEK4
Volume 2 - https://we.tl/t-2KeovRFsF9
Volume 3 - https://we.tl/t-F6GG3UQjjf
Volume 4 - https://we.tl/t-eC30PV9Be1
Volume 5 - https://we.tl/t-d0iY3idxWN
Volume 6 - https://we.tl/t-tmVijJV9Qn

Enjoy! :D

Fit pretty nice

Thanks again

lovejones, thank you very much for the tracklists! Didn't mean to be rude, was just too tired to do them.

Happy people here find those to be of interest. Let me also offer the front covers for those volumes I did originally - nothing fancy, just pics to emphasize the electronic nature of the compilations :D

https://www110.zippyshare.com/v/KvBDMFJW/file.html

As for the continuation, well, hopefully soon I may have some free time and will think what i can do. It'd be nice to try and do one comp in FLAC :D Will keep everyone posted!

Thanks for the great Synth Compilation.

The artwork is nice too!

Some of New Wave's greatest songs were made using a Roland JD-Xi.
Talk about the memories.
