Reverb.com has posted a video which they tell us is for anyone who last week's trailer release for season 2 of "Stranger Things" left them with a craving the sweet synth sounds of the hit Netflix show. Reverb.com recently sat down with S U R V I V E, whose members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein are up for two Grammys this weekend, to jam on a selection of vintage and modern synthesizers. This is what they had to say...
The throwback music of hit Netflix series "Stranger Things" was the brainchild of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of S U R V I V E. To create brooding atmosphere, the two used a selection of vintage and modern synthesizers and drum machines to craft John Carpenter-esque synth soundscapes. In this video, S U R V I V E explores four vintage synths at Reverb's Justin Delay's studio: the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, the Roland Juno-6, the Korg Mono/Poly and the Roland TR-707 drum machine.
