""U.S. synthwave/retrowave artist Late Drifter delivers a great electronic instrumental tune with 'Harbor Ride', a classic old school 80's production-oriented track that takes you into a delightful sonic ride like its name proclaims! Like many other artists in this genre/style, Late Drifter achieves a wonderful level of quality in terms of the musical arrangement, synth work, and melodies, adding to that a beautiful sax layer that is sometimes reminiscent of classic new wave/synthpop productions or more modern-day examples like The Midnight. This particular track also features a low-level grittiness that is noticeable in subtle amounts and gives the music a richness and warm atmosphere, like if it was being played through a cassette. In the end, the music is nonpretentious, it's simple and to the point, with a subtle complexity delivering a cool atmosphere that indeed can take you to a simulated 'harbor ride'. Late Drifter is one of those synthwave artists that you shouldn't miss!""

SYW Overall SCORE: "GREAT"

 

INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
late-drifter-harbor-ride
The main inspiration behind this song was to make something that sounded distinctly South Florida in the 1980s. I'd added a very smooth saxophone lead to really tie it all together. I used a Casio sa-21 as the sound to emulate for the synth with heavy amount of compression.
