Teaming up for most of the five-cut Control EP with frequent collaborators/producers LAU and Oscillian, along with Sunglasses Kid, NINA (AKA Nina Boldt) has crafted a fleet of turbocharged cuts bathed in neon-noir and covering concepts of duality, obsession, escape, love, and hope. – Vehlinggo
Ahead of the highly-anticipated EP release of CONTROL by Nina (feat LAU), listen to the full song, “Where It Ends” available exclusively now at Vehlinggo! “Where It Ends,” ironically, is the first track from the five-track EP, to be released by Lakeshore Records digitally on Friday, December 11, 2020.
The synthpop-centric songs contain a sampling of Cliff Martinez’s iconic Drive score — a soundtrack and film that no doubt has influenced Nina in her ascent as one of the most recognized artists in the synthwave scene. Are you looking forward to this new album release?
Lakeshore Records has released the single, “I Drive (Waveshaper Remix” via The Rise of the Synths Presents! Waveshaper’s remix of the Cliff Martinez classic track from the Drive soundtrack shows that music fans’ love of synthwave is not waning anytime soon. The mere existence of The Rise of the Synths documentary and its continued support at film festivals around the world is proof enough that the love of and homage to the music of the 1980s is going strong. Available on all major digital music services worldwide.
Lakeshore Records is proud to have released two of “The 40 Greatest Film Soundtracks Of All Time”: Drive and Half Nelson! Directed by Ryan Fleck, the critically-acclaimed Half Nelson (2006) features music by Broken Social Scene, The Somnambulants, Billy Bragg and more. Drive, also on the Best Soundtracks and Most Influential lists, continues to draw favor among film music and movie aficionados. Features score by Cliff Martinez and songs by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx, Desire, The Chromatics, College, and Riz Ortolani.
Did someone say free? Yes, Drive, the Academy Award®-nominated film that came to influence filmmakers in subsequent years, enable the proliferation of the synthwave music scene, and more, can now be seen in its entirety on the new IMDb Freedive service! The only catch is you’ll have to deal with a few commercials, but who cares because, free.
Director Nicolas Winding Refn won the Best Director award at Cannes at its premiere, and the film would go on to win many other awards and nominations, including Best Score at the International Film Music Critics Award, nominations for Best Score at the World Soundtrack Awards and LA Film Critic’s Association Awards, and earning an Oscar® Nomination (Best Achievement in Sound Editing)!

Hotel Artemis is the latest from Martinez and it doesn’t disappoint. Dark, brooding, moody, pulsing, and emotional, Martinez’s music is an awesome spin when you’re looking for that perfect introspective music to rescue you from the realities of life. – Birth.Movies.Death
