The playlist I’ve compiled is a combination of songs, sounds and artists that influence Junks and the kind of music I like to mix when i’m DJing at parties or at my monthly retrowave party, Totally Rad.

The list reflects my love of synthwave and 80s synthpop, with songs that give me that warm and fuzzy nostalgic feeling, evoking images of the neon-drenched, Blade Runner-esque cityscapes implanted in my brain from too-much-movie-watching but also from my life here in the futuristic cities of Hangzhou and Shenzhen, China.


Keep up with Junks here.
