  • This is truly something that deserves this tag: http://www.last.fm/music/Synchropath the atmosphere in this music is like made for a cyberpunk movie! [2] agreed on that one!
  • Access to Arasaka cyberpunk ??? LOL :D @ElectroPeter -> Blade Runner music by Vangelis is pure electronic and nothing to do with ebm...
