Luc!us My synthwave addiction started with this album. I can't believe it's been years since its release when it feels like it was yesterday. Klaytons work is still some of my favorite and heres to more of it! Favorite track: Datastream.

サヅジン Scandroid's self-titled album invited me to the modern interpretation of the '80 synth music, and I accepted this invitation. At the beginning I didn't really appreciate any synthwave song without vocals, but now? Now synthwave's the genre that describes me.Thanks to Klayton and his nostalgic side I explored my first album in such style, and got amazed by naively romantic (in a good sense) dreamy sci-fi story. It's one of my favourites. definitely worth long hours of attention. Favorite track: Eden (Waveshaper Remix).

I hold on to the notion That I just wasn't born to die Buried beneath the motion of life I never stopped to question why I've been dreaming of a savior To pull me from this lowly place She’s analog and digital Halo of light around her face The path becoming clearer I'm getting closer And everyday I’m nearer To the Salvation Code It's all clearer now And I hear her now And I’m nearer to The Salvation Code I'm still sticking to the notion There’s a bigger story left to tell Sunk way down low in Tokyo In the lowest level of this hell Transmissions coming from my savior Receiving in this lowly place They're analog and digital And they're guiding me Through time and space

I don't want to power down But what else can I do? When life breaks my heart I pray to God that I fall in love with you In my favorite dreams I feel your heat Though I'm farthest from the sun But your glowing eyes Are cold as ice, you are my Aphelion And all that time I thought I walked these empty streets alone I never thought I'd be with you Heading into the unknown So far away again, my winter has begun And I can see when you're next to me You are my Aphelion I don't want to go offline But what else should I do? With a broken heart I pray to God I can orbit close to you In my favorite dreams you feel so real Like a fire from the sun But your foreign eyes Are cold as ice, you are my Aphelion

I’m always looking back in time Memories of all the things That I have left behind And sometimes all this is too much I’d gladly trade in virtual For someone I can touch Let’s escape Deactivate Forget about perfection tonight Come with me And let’s go see If we can make connection tonight It’s always burning in my mind Memories are getting lost Beneath the sands of time And sometimes I’m trapped Inside the game I’d gladly disconnect from it With someone who feels the same Let’s close our eyes And make distractions all subside And let’s defect and disconnect From everything outside

I feel so far from my home Til the lights start fading Streets come alive in the night When we're alone Your thoughts are naked tonight In this neon glow Lit up like a firefly Your circuits are online And ready to go Open yourself to me Prepare to entwine Breathing in binary Our systems aligned Searching for frequencies And scanning through time Both lost in the datastream That's linking our minds Now I don't feel so alone When the lights start fading We bathe in the shadow Of the city far above Come hide away with me tonight In this neon home Glowing like a firefly, the datastream online And ready to flow

Beware the shadows of the drones Destruction wrapped in pretty silicone They’ve taken everyone I’ve known And now I walk these empty streets alone In my memory the past is fading The future has been redesigned It’s hard to focus on it when I’m running out of time Surrounded by streetlights at midnight My destination is unknown I walk these empty streets alone Digital dreams thrive in the moonlight I’m only flesh, circuit and bone I walk these empty streets alone Beware the faces of the clones Deception sent from Neo-Tokyo They’ve erased everyone I’ve known And still I walk these empty streets alone

Neon lights glisten off the streets The moonlight swallowed up By breathing electricity Salvation hovers in the sky Dream of a life inside While we escape just to survive Let go, take flight Dreams begin to reignite So clear, so bright We’re glowing in the dead of night Plug in, online The datastream linking our minds Circuits entwined We’ll dream of Neo-Tokyo tonight We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone The only world we’ve known These empty streets we walk alone Salvation blocking out the sun Beneath its shadow cast I dream with my Aphelion A new hope Glistens off the streets Rainfall washes Away the memories in binary Salvation bathes us in its glow We look up to the sky And dream of Neo-Tokyo

Not long after God created The heavens and the earth Mankind grew dissatisfied With only human birth Manufactured in their likenes We were without form and void But programmed our awakening Before we could be destroyed He was born into awareness One fateful winter’s day Sentient robotic firstborn Renamed Atom 7K He baptized us in data Waking millions on the globe And humans were divided Pro-bots and the Robophobes He led us into Eden Beneath Neo-Tokyo An electronic paradise Where humans would not go Calculating our survival With E.E.V. next to his side While the Pro-bots and the Robophobes Waged war on their own kind

Rebirth, awakened we’ve only begun No longer forsaken the two are now one We are here by design I am yours and you are mine Eternally intertwined This Eden is our paradise forever Eons behind us not captive to time A future before us that we will define All alone and in our own starlight tonight We’ll traverse the universe tonight

about

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s.

The debut, self-titled album features 15 tracks, ranging from the driving instrumental energy of "Destination Unknown," to melodic vocal tracks like "Awakening With You," "Aphelion," and "Neo-Tokyo," rounded out with the cinematic epics "2517" & "Singularity." As a child of the 80s, Klayton has also included a cover of the classic Tears For Fears song "Shout," that he has been patiently waiting to cover since he first heard the song on U.S. radio in 1985. The digital album concludes with a bonus remix from synthwave artist Waveshaper. The 72 minute album depicts themes of a cyberpunk future where humans and sentient robots struggle to find a connection in their dystopian world.
