'Midnight Hi-Fi is an experimental synthwave project by 32 year old Northern Irish producer, Clark Thompson, and is inspired by the sights and sounds of the best decade for music there has ever been, the 1980s.
He is heavily influenced by the melodic side of classic rock as well as video game soundtracks like Hotline Miami and Deus Ex, but is not afraid to try new things and innovate within the genre and it's many sub-genres.'
Midnight Hi-Fi is an experimental synthwave project by 32 year old Northern Irish producer, Clark Thompson.
''Having spent the good part of 15 years writing and recording alternative rock music, my love for synthwave didn't really manifest itself in a big way til a couple of years ago, although the first seeds were planted much earlier by media such as Hotline Miami back in 2012, and the movie Drive which I saw shortly after.
Video games and music always had a big impact on me growing up; if I wasn’t glued to a screen, I had my headphones on, and vice versa. My infatuation with the aesthetics and sounds of the time period that the synthwave genre hearkens back to, are largely due to a video game called Vice City which was released in 2002 but was set in a fictitious city in the mid-1980s.
I remember playing it as a teenager in my room on my old CRT TV/Video combi, with the in-game radio station blasting Jan Hammer through my Hi-Fi speakers, while I cruised up and down the neon-soaked streets in whatever sports car I could find.
Come and say hello on any of my social media links! I hope you enjoy the music.''
