Happy New Years, Top Tracks of 2013!

RossoCorsaTopTracks2013small

2013. It was the year of Edward Snowden and the surveillance state, Vine, twerking and the comebacks of Beyoncé and Kanye West. But it was also China’s first adventure on the moon with Chang’e-3 and the abysmal flops of Blackberry X and crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford. But, as always, another year completed means more great music.

Here at Rosso, we can ego stroke somewhat: This year we licensed tracks to HBO’s Eastbound and Down, Toonami’s Spacy Dandy and Gameloft’s Gangstar Vegas as well as releasing full albums by Lazerhawk, D/A/D, Lost Years and Highway Superstar, not to mention a killer EP by Silent Gloves. Looking forward, we are excited to contribute to Laser Unicorns’ exceptional Kung Fury movie which just went viral.

    Guys, i remember watching that episode of EastboundAndDown when suddenly this sick tune came in. I hadn’t heard it before although i m a fan of MN84. It sounded like something really cool that Tangerine Dream put together for an awesome 80′s Tom Cruise movie.
    My point:
    You are the future and although your music sounds incredible in parties (a friend of mine had a synthwave/outrun/call-it-whatever-you-want party in his home in Athens, with great success) my wish for 2014 is to see you much more in movies/tv series. Hope your marketing pulls it off, and have all the luck needed because the music is there and the scene is ready to explode!!!
    Cheers guys and i hope all the best. You have kept me great company with your tunes through some really rough times this year.

    E.G., Athens, Greece

  2. Thanks for some other fantastic article. Where else could
    anyone get that type of info in such an ideal means of writing?

    I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such information.
