TomS 198XAD and 199XAD feel kind of like connected collection of cyberpunk soundscapes to me. They get the dark alleys and the wide city vistas just right. Active Denial System's gong-like background sounds make me want to find out what enormous unseen device is making them. Favorite track: Active Denial System.

Munkhi This is signature MegaDrive stuff here. I'm absoultely hooked on NARCS, the evolution of the 198XAD track NARC.
Where NARC was the undercover cop theme, NARCS is the big shootout raid and chase afterward. The brilliance is the deliberate reuse of the original song samples and how it's turned into such incredible energy and pace. Great work! Favorite track: NARCS.

about

In 2014, Mega Drive released the visionary 198XAD, a darkly cybernetic piece of audio horror that quickly became a cult classic. The recording found spots on lists of the best dark synthwave albums and earned respect from critics, fans, and creators alike. Not content to rest on past successes, Mega Drive proceeded to push into new and increasingly diverse ideas on subsequent releases. For five years, 198XAD stood as a unique and unrivaled sci-fi creation at the origin point of synthwave’s dark side.

Now, Mega Drive has returned to the dystopian world of his most acclaimed work with a direct sequel, 199XAD.

Fans will immediately be drawn back into the densely woven, detailed environment of the original, as Mega Drive displays an impressive versatility across 12 exceptional tracks. Each one offers a glimpse into a different corner of Mega Drive’s inspired vision of the retrofuture, as 199XAD expertly shifts from the searing artillery fire of "Gun Hag" to patiently atmospheric and cinematic pieces like "Terror Eyes."

The result will thrill long-time Mega Drive fans and revive memories of 199XAD’s epic predecessor while those who are new to the artist will find the latest album to be the perfect jumping-on point. 199XAD promises to be one of Mega Drive’s most highly regarded and talked about recordings yet.
