G-Synth Era. Taking old school synthy 80’s to 90’s Pop/R&B, adding a dash of glitch hop and beats and we get this week’s dirtyfied version of a regular radio station. About half of the tracks in this session are ones that I tried incorporating into previous podcasts with no luck. Thankfully make sense together here. Especially the tracks with the quirky titles.
