Fredag 20 September
The pre-party of the year!
To start this September party weekend of Abstract Avilyn together with Depeche Mode Party Gothenburg and Beatbox.se invite you all to an evening with neon, live acts, exhibition and perfect beats for the dancefloor.
Waveshaper is a Swedish artist inspired by the soundtrack scene of the 80s / early 90s. His sound is cinematic and melodic with a modern mix that reminds of the French House sound. He grew up spending a lot of time on Atari/Amiga and video games that clearly is represented in his tracks.
Waveshaper emerged back in 2013 and but the last couple of years has blossomed into one of the most well known artists in the so called Synthwave scene. In 2016 he released the album “Station Nova” on NRW Records (New Retro Wave) and contributed with 4 original tracks to the PS4 / Xbox game “Furi” OST, alongside names like Danger and Carpenter Brut among others.
With a gazillion albums and EPs under his belt already, Waveshaper’s rise to Syntwave stardom is imminent and if his most recent and universally acclaimed releases aren’t enough, just dig a little bit deeper into the Swedish artist’s discography to understand why he’s one of the fastest growing names in the scene.
+ Midnight Danger
Midnight Danger is a Synth/Retrowave project from Stockholm-Sweden, created by producer and guitarist Chris Young in late 2015. Inspired by the new wave of synth music, Midnight Danger is a nostalgic soundtrack experience full of synthesizers and guitar riffs, delivering lots of power, punch and retro vibes.
After successfully releasing a few singles between 2015 and 2016, Midnight Danger was handpicked by NRW Records/New Retro Wave – a leading label in the Synthwave/Retrowave scene to be part of the “Magnatron 2.0” compilation alongside some of the biggest names in the scene such as Daniel Deluxe, Waveshaper, Tokyo Rose, Alex and many others.
Following the release of “Magnatron 2.0”, Midnight Danger played his debut gig in Stockholm supporting Californian duo Dance With The Dead which was immediately sold out. In the same year, the production of the debut album “Malignant Force” was concluded and the album was released in January 2018 via NRW Records. The reception of the album was astounding, leading to the album vinyl release selling out in just a matter of weeks.
A few more live shows followed with Midnight Danger playing his first international shows. UK (London, Milton Keynes and Glasgow) and France (Paris) were some of the shows that followed, with Midnight Danger gaining not only raving reviews and feedback for his performances but also the trust of co-touring artists, fans and promoters alike and paving the road for greater things and even more live performances.
