Terrordyne Hard hitting and dreamy synths...perfect soundtrack for those night rides and police chases! Favorite track: Main Force Patrol.

Dimi Kaye Super strong debut by Miles Matrix. Feel good but also dark and cyberpunk inspired outrun/synthwave tracks with plenty of nostalgia throughout, great use of some retro instruments that remind me 16bit videogames and also some early 90s dance inspirations.

Enemy Mine is my favourite because it reminds me of my summers when I was a teen. I don't know why but it's pretty awesome if you ask me. Favorite track: Enemy Mine.

Rob Dyson Nice debut & a pleasure to have Miles join us on Ever Synth the 80s on Riverside Radio & Artefaktor Radio.

My standout tracks are: Adventure Club - dramatic and score-y, definitely the end of the movie as the credits roll and all of the ancient evil have been slain...or have they?

Star Pilot, the main melody with the appeggio reminds me of completing Ghouls and Ghosts on my Spectrum ZX as a kid..
There is definitely a lot of video game influence in the whole album. Perhaps the drums could gone even harder to really give weight but that might have tipped the track into more gothcore and could have sounded overly dramatic.

The opener Night Striker is a Euro-inflected (can hear early Jean Michel Jarre in the main melody) piece of synthwave with a repeating motif that sounds pretty timeless. Right track to kick the album off with for sure.

All in all a competent debut with standout moments, and I look forward to hearing how Miles pushes his style ever more forward. Favorite track: Adventure Club.
