Thank you all for the suggestions. Slowly working my way through it.

I really have no idea at all about this genre. So I'm just posting what I know and then going from there. Getting suggestions and ideas from GAF. Which is the point of this thread. Thanks for the links though. Most definitely will give them a listen later on tonight.

Chromatics



"At Your Door"

"Lady"

"Running Up That Hill"

"Back From the Grave"

Not exactly pure 80's throwback pop, but the audio cues they take from that style always make me think of the 80's.

You reckon? The album is on my daily rotation. Which tracks do you think are filler (they are probably the ones I skip every now and then :P)

For fear of stating the obvious, the Snatcher soundtrack is great.
One Night In Neo-Kobe


Soul Hackers has some great moody synth as well.

Actually, maybe filler was the wrong word to use.

I just think I listened to some of the songs too many times prior to release (Nightcall, Roadgame, Testarossa Autodrive, Protovision), so by the time I got the album, I was already a bit bored of them.

I would say Grand Canyon and First Blood are my two favourites, but Blizzard, Suburbia, and Endless are a bit forgettable, in my opinion.

Any project related to the band Zombi is really good, although it's more 70's horror-inspired synth stuff, but still very good. Off the top of my head Zombi, Steve Moore, Gianni Rossi and Majeure are all projects worth checking out.

If you're a cool person you might recognize some of these tracks from the "More Blood, More Heart: The Making of Hobo With A Shotgun" documentary (Think they also used some of these throughout the bluray menus).

some more contributions to this thread. I went through my music library and found a wide variety of tracks that I think fit this genre.

DVAS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5s4GqpqqHo

SymbolOne - I know someone already mentioned SymbolOne, but it was a Danger remix.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOKaHYXpWnM

Minitel Rose
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwP2zjnF1Ww

Miami Horror - This track reminds me of Daft Punk - Verdis Quo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5tkzQ6ddaE

Steve Moore - He is half of Zombi so this doesn't count as new, but this track is awesome
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OprwqxyF758

Komytea - Gritty track from a mainly progressive house artist
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OawwtNyvpso

Alan Braxe - Feel free to look up his original work. I love these next two tracks so that's why I am posting them.

Surprised that no one mentioned Noir Deco yet (some of the ones I like):

Noir Deco- Sentient Love

Noir Deco - Charged and Ready

Noir Deco - Escape With Snake Plissken

By the time Cyberpunk 2077 rolls out, I'll have a collection befitting the game.

This is amazing.

My problem with a lot of what's posted in here is it's revival stuff; while it's definitely great, there is something to be said about music created during the time. Pertubator is really awesome, along with the others big on Bandcamp, but I just love hearing shit from the time.

Anyone else?

Very glad to have stumbled upon this thread.

If Zombi is too indebted to Argento/Goblin and John Carpenter, what about something like Drokk? Soundtrack for Dredd that wasn't
