CHECK OUT THE VINTAGE SYNTHS BEHIND THE STRANGER THINGS SOUNDTRACK

In July, DJ Mag revealed that the epic soundtrack to Netflix’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things would get a full release.

The Netflix original series features a stunning score that occupies the ground between synthwave and Carpenter-esque analogue goodness, and was created by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E.

The OST landed in two parts in August, but now Stein has taken Austin radio station KUT 90.5 for a tour of the setup they used to compose it, which features an ARP Odyssey, Roland SH-101, Korg Mono/Poly, Roland SH-5, Korg Polysix and much more. You can watch the video below.

Poland’s Unsound festival will also feature the world’s first live performance of the score to Stranger Things, at the event which runs from Sunday 16th to Sunday 23rd October.
