Abandoned Dance Party – Frozen Lonesome

When I saw this at Discchord I knew I had to post the video too. Once you read the description you might understand why:

Abandoned Dance Party is my contribution to the compilation Bedroom Cassette Masters 1980-89 Volume Three. “Sounds like vintage electronica, looks like vintage electronica…”
A third compilation of synth & drum machine tracks (with the occasional vocal) most of which were recorded in bedrooms all over the world between 1980-89. All have been produced with the same DIY, lo-fi analogue spirit in mind. In my case this was produced in 2013, but attention was paid to give it a 1988 sound and feel. Music, programming and video done by me. Check out my contribution to BCM 2 – Travel Ban by Transit Authority.…
