About this item

After furnishing us with three volumes of excellent mood-setting synth-dread from S U R V I V E's Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein, the time has come for the real retroist deal, a double LP of the perfectly selected and precisely arranged period jams from the magnificent Stranger Things. A cursory scan of the tracklist reveals hits from The Police, The Clash and The Bangles, alternative anthems from Echo & The Bunnymen, Fad Gadget and Joy Division and pop smashes from Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran and Corey Heart. Stitched together with choice bits of dialogue from the show, this mixtape is an immersive trip into glorious nostalgia.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: While Dixon & Stein have deservedly picked up the plaudits for their Carpenter-esque synthery, the music supervision of Stranger Things was every bit as important in setting the scene. This double vinyl set serves up winners from series 1 & 2 pieced together with dialogue from the show. Contains Joy Division, Cyndi Lauper and Devo - mint!
