So I've been in the mood to listen to what is mentioned in the title, 80s style synth-pop/electro synth/cyberpunk music. From what I gathered in various threads...

He's more on the modern soul/boogie tip, but it's definitely strong with the 80s synth vibe.

Perturbator is excellent, definitely one of my current favorites. Also, I don't recall who pointed me towards them but the record label Aphasia Records basically only consists of 80's sounding synth artists.

Those two songs have nothing on Raining Steel.

Edit: Totally misread your post by the way (didn't see you say Raining Steel). Raining Steel is the toppest tier, though.

You might like the Space Synth genre. It's not quite that archetypal 80s sound, but it is very synth heavy and sci-fi sounding. Here are a few names to get you started.

Syntech:
Soundly Computed
ByT&E

Proxyon:
Space Travellers
Space Fly

Rygar:
Star Tracks
Space Raiders

Laserdance:
Endless Dream
Hypermagic

KOTO:
Mechanic Sense
Mind Machine

Hypnosis:
Argonauts
Windland

Yeah, those are two of my favourites too. I also love the vocals in Naked Tongues.

His latest song 'Perturbator's Theme' is really good as well.

I still have to nominate my favorite song from Hotline Miami (even though I'm sure it's been posted to death): Knock Knock by Scattle

I love Perturbator but Scattle's song is just vengeful bliss. It totally evokes the 'feeling' of the level it is used in-- at least to me.

Scattle's 'Inner Animal' was fantastic too.

Man, if it wasn't for Hotline Miami, I would never have gotten into this kind of music.

While this genre is getting annoying as hell, copying the hair/art style EXACTLY. its getting hard to find original 80's tunes. I mean cmon'... VHS tapes are not to remembered fondly dammit!

I did pick this one up recently Pilotpriest

Nice thread. Enjoyed your post in the Farcry Blood dragon thread.

I'd mention the Hotline Miami soundtrack for those who haven't played it.

I thought the OP was going to post 80s style snyth-pop/electro synth cyberpunk inspired music not stuff which just sounds like generic techno of the 10s.

Like things like Polica's Amongster https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvmb8oussWs or Punching in a Dream by The Naked And Famous https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szi1iIkhV2E essentially stuff with a bit of auto tune, disorted electronical rifts, a bit of techno and and overall sounding cyberpunkish albums from the both of them while still been pop stuff.
