Bio-Puppet's "Lazersky" is without a doubt one of the artists best recordings to date. Bio-Puppet tries to capture the quintessential elements of Synthwave; to produce retro sounds with modern sounds and production techniques. Lazersky has many different sub-genre sounds to please every kind of Synthwave listener while keeping an overall steady vibe throughout each track.

The Bio-Puppet Album
The Bio-Puppet album is an 80's toy themed recording, but really goes further into what it's like to be a kid. The innocence that we have is something that should be treasured. When we get older, we tend to forget what it's like to be carefree, but with music we can always take a breather. The Bio-Puppet Album will surely take you on a journey to all of the ridiculous, clever, and fun times of the 80's.
"Bio-Puppet" can be thought of as a sequel to "Arcadeland", the previous full album release from Bio-Puppet. Arcadeland was a tribute to the video games of the 80's and the Bio-Puppet Album is a tribute to the media of those times in general. Enjoy and thank you for listening!!!!!

What is it about Synthwave we all love? For some, it's the nostalgia of a simpler time, for others it may be simply the analog sounds of Juno and Prophet synthesizers. For Arcadeland, its the memories of my childhood. I was born in 1980 in West Virginia and lived most of my childhood in Tennessee. The happiest moments of my life were growing up playing NES and Genesis, riding bikes, and playing with my friends in the neighborhood.
Video games are so much a part of what I represent as an artist and person, I wanted to make an album devoted to this part of my life. For me, Synthwave music reminds me of growing up listening to old Thomas Dolby Records, Playing Streets of Rage, and more than anything, being carefree.
Arcadeland, a testament to the part of the 80's I relate to the most, is meant to be happy. I want to put a happy, carefree music release into a modern world filled with uncertainty, resentment, and chaos. While the world may never be perfect, we can always take a break and remember what life is meant to be; Happy. I hope Arcade land takes you into a journey of peace, love, fun, and happiness.

The Pursuit EP
"The Pursuit" tells the story of a police officer in Crystal Hills, Noir City who is looking for a serial killer. Each track tells of a scene where he is relentlessly hunting the criminal and finally captures him. Done in outrun style, these tracks should keep the listener entertained as well as provide training to be a good citizen and crimestopper.
