I had the pleasure of appearing on last week’s episode of the Beyond Synth Podcast with Andy Last. Andy and I discussed the new record amongst other things. We also played some cool tunes. You can listen to the episode here. https://t.co/NsF8Jmzru5
Beyond stoked to announce that Let Em Riot will be performing at NEON Retrofest this summer in Rhode Island - 3 days of live synth music, retro gaming, movies, panelists and vendors. Let Em Riot will be performing alongside some of the genre's most talented acts such as: Waveshaper, Robert Parker, Absolute Valentine, Protector 101 and Tonebox. This is setting up to be the event of the summer so don't miss out! Info and Tickets available at www.neonri.com
NEON is a Retrofuturism love letter to late 20th Century entertainment--a new event inspired by the worlds and sounds we grew up with: flickering neon, killer robots, rain-soaked pavement, eternal sunsets, cyberpunk skylines, obsolete technology, and relentless midnight drives.
A cutting-edge synthwave music festival drives the heartbeat of three days and nights of retro immersion, including a massive themed video arcade, console gaming time capsule, classic tabletop gaming lounge, iconic guests and panelists, and above all, a chance to experience the future as imagined by the past without having to invent a time machine.
Join us in Rhode Island, The Ocean State, Summer 2018 for an exclusive glimpse into the future that never was.

I can't express how excited I am to announce that Let Em Riot has signed to New Retro Wave Records. and we are wasting no time with the release of my debut album, The Futurist - out this Friday! NRW, for me, has always been the cornerstone of the Retro Synth world and have shown unbelievable support over the years. I can honestly say that I, along with countless other synth artists, would not be here today if it were not for their unwavering dedication to the music. I am honored and feel privileged to have a home at New Retro Wave Records alongside some of the most talented musicians I know.
