"Explorer is a homage to the classic space synth sounds that first got me hooked me on electronic music when I was young, unashamedly channelling the tones of John Carpenter, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Jean Michel Jarre that I grew up with along with later discoveries like Drexciya and Model 500. Unlike my previous sample-tracker work, I improvised these tracks at the keyboard away from the computer and wrote the whole record over two weeks in January 2014." - Matt Nida

Resonance. The track we all know and love. Introduced me to my favorite genre of music. Thank you, Randy. Goffe taught me about synthwave through the most nostalgic piece of music to ever grace my ears. And for that, I'm forever in your debt. theslicingsword
