This year has been a landmark one for Vehlinggo mixes after only a couple months, and March is no different. This month, Highway Superstar, the international, ’80s-inspired synth-pop artist, has crafted a multi-faceted dance party for you. Its bedrock is an unbridled show of nu-disco, Franco-electronic, synth-pop, synthwave, and indie-electronic sentiments.
Jupiter, Casio Social Club, Le Flex, Betablock3r, Brothertiger, Gigamesh, Televisor, and many more make an appearance. Check it out. Make sure to read what he had to say about his mix.
Here’s what Highway Superstar had to say about his curative choices:
I wanted to do the complete opposite of the traditional “build-up” approach and start off strong and fast-paced with what, in my opinion, are some true bangers. The second part of the mix is somewhat of a new-wave cool-down from the party, ending on a nostalgic note that is a beautiful throwback remix. Somewhere in there is a cameo by Andy Synth. It’s an absolute joy to curate music for people to listen to and I do hope you discover some rarities and goodies through this mix.
