Harnessing the bedroom pop ethos of making the most of what you have, multi-instrumentalist and sound designer Ben Bromley channeled his inner 1990s pre-teen. He sampled a late 1980s Yamaha PSS synth that used the Yamaha YM3812 chip (the first chip to make FM synthesis affordable to the masses) and built Serum presets with its wavetables.
With this starting point, the pack builds on 20 years of homebrew music history from the mid-90s hip hop and dream pop through millennial indie and vaporwave. It includes a meticulously crafted set of home percussion samples and selects from his dusty old hard drive. The results offer everything you’d want from synthwave, indie rock, lo-fi beats, and bedroom pop. Inspired by the likes of Tycho, Teendaze, My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, and Mac Demarco, these sounds are nostalgic while offering a unique perspective with a modern feel.
