LWTHR has been making music on-and-off for the last 20 years. This year he put out two synthwave/chillwave EPs, with another currently underway. They’re simply called EP/One and Two, and are well worth checking out for cool 80s vibes.
LWTHR’s presets are for TAL U-NO-LX and Arturia Mini V. They are great for 80s inspired music, and benefit from chorus and a ton of plate reverb!
The Future Scares Me
Eli Sundelson is a keyboardist and organist based in Brooklyn, NY. His band is called The Future Scares Me. You can also find him playing organ at a Baptist church, or with his jazz trio. Originally from Berkeley, CA, Eli loves burritos and all things with knobs and keys.
Eli’s presets are for TAL U-NO-LX and Soundtoys EchoBoy, and are copies of patches originally made and recorded on his Juno-106 for the song Slow Down, by his band The Future Scares Me. Slow Down Intro is the sound at the beginning (and also end) of the song. This sound is fed through the EchoBoy preset Slow Down Delay. The TAL-U-No-LX preset Slow Down 1 is the Juno part played during the verse sections, and Slow Down 2 is from the chorus of the song.
George Shields is an experimentalist from DC, who has been producing for 3 years. He enjoys making all kinds of electronic music, including ambient, plunderphonics, and experimental bass.
George’s presets are for the brand new Arturia Pigments, Mini V, and Ableton Live's Wavetable synth.

Matthew’s preset is a droney sci-fi alien bass-scape for Madrona Labs Aalto, a fantastic semi-modular software synth. The drone has some heavy modulation, with some footsteps and malfunctioning generators thrown in the mix from time to time.
