Synthwave and chillwave unashamedly influenced by the soundtracks of decades of dystopian future visions and the inevitable takeover by our machine overlords.
A.U.W swings through breakbeat, trance, tech-house, arriving with full synthwave mode enabled. It is the electronic music project of Dom Cresswell; pushing strong melodic and harmonic content out of lush synthesiser hardware.
Supported by Synthetix of RetroSynth Records. A.U.W. stands for Abandoned Uranium Workings.
AUW's new album Across the Plains is now available on Bandcamp. Combining darksynth, retrowave, chillsynth and cyberpunk, this one packs a bit of a punch and from pre-order has 2 tracks provided right away, the punchy M13 and a full length edition of Cruise Control (Beanpole Remix).
