A great place to start discovering synthwave is the earlier mentioned Synthwave Essential Album Chart.

Playlists on spotify that we recommend are "Synthwave in Space" playlist by aof3d or his "Synthwave Underground" playlist consisting of lesser known synthwave artists.

Youtube is also a great way to discover new music, there are many good youtube channels. Most notably:

Discover the Pulse of RetroWave with My Curated Spotify Playlist

Hi all!
I've spent a considerable amount of time curating a RetroWave-themed playlist on Spotify that I believe many of you will enjoy. It's called 'RetroWave Rhythms', and it's a compilation of some fantastic tunes that truly stood out for me. I've tried to include a mix of some nu-disco, funky house, synthwave and some lesser-known chillwave gems. I hope you find it as captivating as I do! If you're into give it a save and follow and of course I'm open to some feedback! Plan here is to grow this playlist and keep the synthwave/retrowave movement going!

Here's the link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1ueiAoq0jAxv6G7gUR0KQw?si=44b75982c66845cb
