Electronic music producer Mercurius FM is releasing Arkanoid, the debut single on his record label Broken Synth Recordings. It is a retro flavored synthwave release available on March 24th, 2016. Originally recorded during a video game development competition (which his team won), Mercurius FM took the basic demo he created in an hour and transformed it into a full on dance track. With the original mix clocking in at a casual 120 BPM, you get a uniquely synthetic sound, coupled with a funky beat that can jam along with retro champions such as Chromeo and LifeLike. Mercurius FM follows it up with a 128 BPM club mix featuring enhanced percussion and a much heavier sound. Finally, for the audio nerds and DJs, there is a “Drumapella” which solos in on the ‘Prince-esque’ 80s drum machine beat. The original mix will be available as a free download for a limited time along with his synthwave remix of the ending music from Blade Runner.
