Oscillian – Dark Dawn


Recently discovered this addictive retrowave/ synthwave track from the album Charlatanism by Swedish musician Oscillian. The album was created using just one softsynth. Intrigued I recently got in touch with him to find out more…

“It’s called Charlatan, hence the name of the album, It was an experimental album where all sounds, including drums and effects, were made using the same synth as the sound source.”

Amazing that it’s a freebie VST that he picked for the task and a reminder it’s definitely worth limiting your options to fuel creativity.

  1. That’s fantastic – clearly less is more! It has a classical sound approaching Tangerine Dreams blue years.
