Le Perv by Carpenter Brut from the album “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number 2015
This is an intense Synthwave track from the Ultraviolent epic, Hotline Miami 2. This particular piece plays during a prison break, and boy, does it fit! It starts with rhythmic bass, accompanied by a droning synthesizer. You can hear police sirens in the background, and this really adds to the dangerous atmosphere. Then, around the 47 second mark, the beat intensifies! We hear a blaring synth, and immediately feel anxiety. I’ve got to give credit to Carpenter Brut and Devolver Digital for using this amazing joyride of a song in the game. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
