64 Rockets is a retrowave solo-project of Mike-E, the man behind the music of the futurepop duo Unity One. Started as a chiptune-flavored electropop, after a number of well-received remixes and covers, 64 Rockets has gradually evolved into a retrowave dance project and is now about to release a debut single: “Ruhleben”.
“Ruhleben” was inspired by a visit to Berlin and frequent trips on the U-Bahn, the city’s rapid transit system. Mike-E: “This particular track is a hi-energy retrowave ode to U2, Berlin’s most famous U-Bahn line, that starts in Pankow and runs through the city to the Ruhleben terminal station.”
In addition to the title track, the single features a club remix by Qodex as well as a fully instrumental version of “Ruhleben”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
