Lucy This album is like a breath of fresh air. If you're feeling a bit down or are in a bad mood, I highly recommend this album to get your spirits up. I find it practically impossible to not get in an upbeat mood with this album. Keep up the great work, Amplitude Problem! :-) Favorite track: OK Firetown.

Troed Sångberg Excellent collection of diverse yet well put together retro sounding songs. Currently on repeat while coding both at work as well as for retro computers at home. The album hit its target audience perfectly :) Favorite track: Blue Bots Dots.

"I didn't set out to make an album that dealt with my formative years, but that's largely what it became. About half of the songs concern things from the late 80s and very early 90s, and Plastic Spaceships goes all the way back to first grade! The whole project turned out far more personal than I had ever thought. As a non-vocalist, I depend on telling stories purely through melodies, harmonies, rhythms and soundscapes. It's challenging but very exciting because every listener interprets my work differently."

Retro Promenade Presents
Amplitude Problem - Blue Bots Dots

Amplitude Problem is Juan Irming, a San Diego producer, composer, sound designer and keyboardist with a focus on synthwave, chiptune, soundtracks, hip hop, video game music and sound effects.

Juan got his start on the European demoscene in the late 80s as the composer for world-famous and humble Atari ST demo crew SYNC, placing first in several demo music contests. Since attending Musicians Institute in the early 90s, he has composed and produced evocative, video game inspired synth and chip soundtracks for a number of projects and records, the most significant being his recent work for legendary geek rapper YTCracker's cyberpunk album Introducing Neals. Juan also writes piano, orchestral and cinematic themes for video games.

Juan's notable influences include Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish, Martin Galway, Maniacs of Noise, Damokles, Public Enemy, Kraftwerk, JM Jarre and Nine Inch Nails. His sound is probably the latter three careening into the same Moog Modular 55 at high speed, crashing on the floor in a confused, groovy, melodic pile with synthesizer bits all over the place. for even more cool details and animated GIF art associated with this album

"Amplitude Problem's new album slays." - YTCracker

"... wildly impressed with the polish and charm of the album ... Full of catchy synth and that soon to be classic Amplitude Problem sound. From fast paced upbeat songs to some darker stuff this album has some range but flows together so nicely." - Punch Nerds

"... you DO NOT want to miss out on this release!" - Neon Vice

"A delicate balance of 80s and 90s synthpop with a focus on groove spiced with insane melodies." - Elijah Lucian

"Amplitude Problem should have been a SEGA composer in the early 90s because damn, this is excellent." - tanner4105

Retro Promenade thanks Synthetix.FM, Beyond Synth Podcast, Synthetix Sundays, Project Friday, Neon Vice, & all of the fans for the support thus far.
