Retro Techno Assault
A chip-sound led melody backed by a strong techno drum beat, also featuring synths and driven electric guitars. This track would be at home in an 80’s video game arcade or likewise a modern ‘retro’ game. Has a slight industrial feel with some synth arpeggiators. A well produced mix of old-school and new.

Born in 1989 in the small town of Hastings in Sussex UK, Leeds University graduate composer and producer Edward Blakeley’s list of achievements reads like a music veteran’s twice his age.
By the age of 18, having already established a foothold in the local music scene, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist, composer, orchestrator, performer and producer founded Sonic Avenue Studios, renting a small commercial unit in nearby Bexhill-on-sea. Gaining experience as not only a studio engineer but also a manager, financier, and businessman the entrepreneur went on to work with Brit Award winning Blair MacKichan (Will Young, Olly Murs, Lily Allan) in both live and studio capacities, and multi-award winning, BAFTA/IVOR NOVELLO nominated composer Richard Jacques (James Bond: Bloodstone, Mass Effect, Little Big Planet 2) working as an assistant and aide, quickly becoming an apprentice composer.
With airtime on BBC Radio 2 at the age of just 20, the young prodigy’s career looks firmly positive ahead, and his compositional and orchestrative techniques have won him composition and sound design roles for feature-length films and multiple animations and video games.
