The Toontrack EZkeys Synth-Pop MIDI pack has been inspired by the wealth of artists from the scene’s budding ’80s through to the second wave of today’s resurgence. It especially hones in on the darker side of things and aims to deliver all the tasty hooks, gritty feels and punkish undertones you need for the ultimate battery of synth-pop ideas.
The notion that hit songs benefit from strong melodic hooks is nothing new, but when it comes to the likes of new wave and synth-pop they’re pretty much mandatory. Who among the the Generation Xers that grew up in the ’80s during the heydays of these genres can honestly say that they weren’t smitten by the addictive synth leads, the urban industrial vibes and the full-on cultural wave that followed?
The inherent darkness of New Order, Depeche Mode, Blondie and The Cure hit with equal force regardless of whether you asked for it or not. And like always, art and expression seem to revolve around the axis of the earth to come and go periodically. Now that we’ve entered the second decade of the new millennium, we’re very much back – right smack in the ’80s again.
