Here’s what they have to say about it:

One More Time, Around the World, Da Funk, Robot Rock, Aerodynamic, and Harder Better Faster Stronger. Continue reading
Zac Bentz let us know about a couple of new albums released by his project The Electric Witch.
Assassin is an album of dark synthpop originals with vocalist Marcus Matthews; and
NEScapism is a collection of Nintendo covers. Bentz notes, “These are the songs that I would let play over and over, ignoring whatever might have been happening on-screen.”
On both albums, Bentz makes extensive use of iPad synths, including Animoog, DM1 and Sunrizer, along with some microKorg vocoding.
The albums are available now for $1 or more. You can stream them for free via the links above, and Bentz has released a free track for each album.
You can download a free track from
Assassin, the title track, above.

While the Korg microKorg has been out for a couple of years, it still offers a good compromise between power, price and portability. If you don’t mind the mini synthesizer keyboard, it’s a lot of synth.
