Jones Of all the synthwave artists who have created soundtracks for make believe movies, Makeup and Vanity Set’s Charles Park series is the most believable and fitting. It’s not too heavy on synthesizers, but it does invoke nostalgia with its consistent grainy feel and dark tone. The insistent use of corny cowbell and stock clapping on some tracks makes it a bit campy, but if you’re gonna make a soundtrack for a make believe 80s styled thriller, you have to stay true to the inspirational material, and to the culture. Favorite track: No Place to Hide.

kmxexii The original vigilantism-to-dance-beats experience. Charles Park is a thriller, with a man racing to complete his mission before his targets - or the police - stop him. He's fueled by stomping dance beats and synths that flicker and flame. Toward the end, his momentum makes him an unstoppable force, chronicled in "Steez" and "No One Gets Out Alive". "This is It" is my favorite track, a blazing monster. I also love the way "Last Chance" and "Terror" build their intensity as they barrel along. Favorite track: This Is It.
