What makes this companion release possible is the documentary behind it all, which was primarily funded by an expansive crowdfunding effort. Director Ivan Castell and producer Javip Moreno are traveling the world interviewing both pioneering synth musicians and the artists inspired by them —  Drive artists Electric Youthand College; Miami Nights 1984; Com Truise; Dance with the Dead; Maethelvin; The Midnight; Betamaxx; Futurecop!, Kristine, OGRE, Carpenter Brut, Lazerhawk, Perturbator, Mitch Murder, and so many more.

Castell and Moreno are also interviewing music journalists, tour organizers, and others involved in the scene. For more information, read up on the documentary and its scope. It’s an inspiring endeavor.
