Yeah, we are definitely having a week of collaborations in our premiere section: This one is for the lovers of emotive and heartwarming Synthwave cuts out there. Coming soon on the beautiful Astrolead Recordings, master Ilya Santana (SXDNS072), the label boss himself, joined forces once again with Spanish vocalist Sandry Sanz to deliver another mesmerising episode of their fruitful partnership. Tagging along this time, Argentinian musician, singer, and guitarist Tony David with his characteristic crying and melodic riffs.
Having a busy 2023 so far, Ilya has been devoting his most recent endeavours almost exclusively to his very own platform, breaking the string with only a few appearances on other vital imprints such as Spa In Disco, Boite Music, and Rare Wiri. For his “return” on Astrolead, he gathered not only a skilled duo of collaborators but also a label favourite for the remix duty: Seville-based producer Jason Core.
“Shattered Memories” is an extremely well-constructed retro-infused anthem with stunning synth leads and a dynamic bassline that paired perfectly with Sandry’s impressive vocals and Tony’s far-out guitar intervention.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
