This is so new wave. In fact, this collection could have been mistaken as a reissue of ''80s hits that never surfaced beyond the dancefloor. But alas, Summer Synth Pop Festival 2000 happens to capture the authenticity of this genre with perfection. Each contributor has their way with the Moog keyboard and Casio drum machine while looking up to the likes of Depeche Mode, Dead or Alive, and New Order. Danceable and perfect for any retro party, there's not a lemon to be found on Summer Synth Pop Festival 2000.
