For those waiting to hear Scandroid’s highly-anticipated follow-up to last year’s “The Darkness”, the time has come: the artist’s brand new album, “The Light”, is now available for pre-order through independent synthwave label FiXT Neon! “The Light” features a hefty selection of all-original music alongside remixes from some of the most well-regarded names in synthwave, including Lucy in Disguise, Fury Weekend, Tommy ‘86, PRIZM, and Turboslash.
To kick things off, those who pre-order The Light will receive synthwave sensation PRIZM’s remix of ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ as an instant-grat track. The song takes the synthpop flavor of the original and pulls it out into a five-and-a-half minute opus filled with surprising compositional twists and a stunning duet-style approach as Danni and Kris alternate the vocal lead with Klayton. The result is no simple remix, but a full re-imagining of a modern synthwave classic that complements and stands beside the original as its own must-hear track.

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Circle of Dust/Celldweller, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s.
Red has scoured the depths of the ancient wasteland he calls home for something lost and buried, something revolutionary. What he unearthed was the New Retro sound of a forgotten era. He formed Scandroid to bring that sound into his world.
Based in an abandoned warehouse in Old Tokyo, he is surrounded by ancient technology and sound from the era of the 1980’s. Beneath the shadow of the elite and unreachable Neo-Tokyo, he plan’s a revolution…
