Rocket Verliden Though the album and its marketing seem to promote a set of 80's-style patches/drums, I found that the album's sound reminds me of tracker music like that found in Amiga and DOS games/demos, rather than 80's arcade cabinets as the cover might suggest. As far as Synthwave goes, it's rather unique, and so I found Arcade Summer to be a pleasant, slapper-packed surprise. Favorite track: Electrocutioner.

80s_Never_Left A dreamy and atmospheric night-tour through nostalgic 80's L.A. that hits all the right cords! Not overly complex in its execution - or statement, instead opting for a steady command of easy synth listening; capable of matching tone with the most popular artists out today. VERY strong work on display here. Bravo! Keep em' coming! Favorite track: Tunnel Run.

about

We are extremely grateful to the family of Brad Ritz for allowing us to tell his story through the medium of his creative output.

It should be noted that, until his untimely death* (see below) the 'Innocence Project' had remained steadfastly committed to reversing his conviction and proving his innocence. Thanks to the generosity of his family his memory now lives on in the music.

*Brad Ritz was wrongly convicted of the brutal murder of Max Fox. He was committed to a mental asylum and was believed to have died tragically whilst incarcerated. In a strange twist, it later emerged that police had in fact arrested his doppelgänger.
