Vieon - Starfighter
Electronics, Synthwave Showing a love for early 70s synthpop pioneers as well as 80s cinematic sounds, Vieon blends together a formula of both a dystopian future and electronic grooves. While not much history surrounds this man, he does definitely create some awesome tunes.

His recent single, Starfighter, emits a powerful tune straight from the eighties. Synths take frame as an electronic piano plays forth a lovely little number. The overall electronic tone stay true to its roots and slams out a blissful song that manages to both suck me right in, as well as bring me to a different era.

A single edit of Sonic Highway is also offered right next to the single, playing with water effects and samples. Less synth heavy, and focusing on drum'n'bass and a mystical, swooping synth rather than a multitude of them at once, it manages to inspire.

And, from what I've seen here, this artist can crank out some lively tunes. Futuristic? Definitely, in every sense of the word. This but teases his full length release, but, hell, I'm stoked for it just from two songs. I can't wait to hear it in full.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
