Limelight is the brand new single from Dutch synth wizard Hunter Complex. It arrives a year and a half after his critically acclaimed second album Heat.

Digital synths, like the Roland D-50 and Yamaha DX7, give everything a suitably ‘period feel’. The lp was very well received by the press. Mojo Magazine praised the ‘techno-pop and movie score dramatics’, Norman Records rated the album 9 out of 10 and The Quietus thought that the combination between ‘the strong positivism that leaks from the melodic and warm synths made the pain even worse’.
