Or, Why I Love Synthesizers Part 1.

A Mix By Alyssa Panda Eyes

A few months ago I got my first analog synthesizer (a delightful Juno 106), and in my rush of excitement and endless posts of synth-porn on my tumblr it occurred to me that some of my followers might not know what analog synthesizers are and why they’re so awesome. So I decided to make a compilation of some of my favorite analog synthesizer based songs, it turned into two compilations of which this is the first - ISOLATED SYNTHESISTS, the second will be coming in a while, it will be called FIRE & ICE (both titles are references to the absolutely fantastic documentary Synth Britannia which is a really excellent introduction to analog synthesizers as well). Anyway, I hope you enjoy, and before I get letters of complaint - yes I am aware that some of the songs on this actually have some digital synths on them, you know we can’t all be perfect (or rich enough to own a Moog), so that’s what I decided to just call it Why I Love Synthesizers.
