Our show is finally getting back on track, and we almost made it if it wasn’t for some missing audio right at the beginning. So, apart from not presenting the beautiful How Would You Like To Go? from the great Temples, we got you two hours dedicated to the beauty and variety of synth.
Heads up for our regular exclusive guest mix, this time by the one-man project Falha Humana. It’s 30 minutes of the best synth pop with a very interesting second single for the project, “Acidente”.

Also this week: Kate Wax, Claire Hamill and Synergy, by Larry Fast.
