Celebrated Synthwave Producer Waveshaper releases Mainframe album

Renowned synthwave producer Waveshaper has released his long-awaited album, Mainframe on the 17th of September via Waveshaper Music Production. On the LP, fans will find the electric track, ‘Save Room’ as well as the previously released singles Friends Againand Lost In The Cloud. The Mainframe LP (which will be available in Digital, CD, Cassette, MiniDisc and, at a later point vinyl) reaches outside of the synthwave universe by adding elements like Future Funk, and even orchestral additions.


The producer has collaborated with several other big names in the scene, having shared a stage with Com Truise, appearing in The Rise of the Synths documentary alongside narrator John Carpenter and having his work remixed by F.O.O.L, Droid Bishop and Magic Sword, while also creating his own remix for Scandroid and KLOUD. Waveshaper has also created music for the award-winning game Furi alongside the Toxic Avenger, Carpenter Brut and others whilst his work in the award-winning Swedish film Videoman was nominated for the International Film Music Critics Award (IFMCA) for The Best Soundtrack. Having been supported by the likes of well-known publications such as EDM.com, New Retro Wave, Magnetic Magazine, Daily Express, Electricity Club, Heavy Blog Is Heavy and Metal Sucks, the producer has earned just over 65 million streams across platforms.


While he was born and is currently based in Jönköping, Sweden, Waveshaper enjoys travelling. The artist has performed on stage in the UK and toured in the USA, Europe & Russia. He is currently working towards a big North America tour in 2022, circumstances permitting. Outside of travel, the producer finds inspiration in soundtracks from video games and films from the 80s and 90s. Waveshaper’s latest album calls to mind a unique textural combination of Com Truise, Boards of Canada and Gesaffelstein.


The world of digital adventure and mysteries beckons with Waveshaper’s latest LP as we’re drawn into a world of synths and driving inflections. It’s here that we’ll find numerous nuances as we dive and dive between the light and joyful to the dark and distorted. ‘Save Room’ stands out as a noteworthy feature on the album, incorporating spacious and deep elements that pair with the progressive stylings of the likes of Com Truise in the beats to provide a safe pillowy space to rest your mind after the high energy of the previous tracks.


Waveshaper shares his thought process behind creating the album: “For Mainframe, I decided to give every track on the album a unique attribute: a diverse listening experience but with a red thread throughout the album. The focus has been put on a user journey covered in emotional synthesizer soundscapes with captive melodies.”
