Welcome to the Iron Skullet Patreon page!

My name is Preston, aka Iron Skullet. I began making synthwave and related playlists on Spotify in late 2012, one of which is now the Synthwave / Retro Electro playlist with over 80,000 followers. I also began writing synthwave album reviews on in 2017, and that project quickly expanded to include Top 10 lists and genre articles like What is Synthwave? 2018 Edition and the Top 10 Darksynth Albums (So Far).

A lot has changed over the years, both for the synthwave genre and for me as a part of it. However, I continue to maintain an open and free submission policy that gives everyone the opportunity to have their music featured in my playlists and I write and share my blog posts with the ads turned off for the best viewing experience.

Your support here ensures the playlists and blog stay active, and it also gives you an opportunity to receive tips on your music or have your name shared at the bottom of each blog post on Take a look at the current tiers, including the two sponsorship tiers, and let's get started.

Here's the bottom line: synthwave promoters and influencers do it because we love the music and for no other reason. Spotify does not pay its playlist makers, and advertising revenue even for popular blogs is practically non-existent. YOU are the only reason I'm able to continue writing reviews and blog posts, working on my synthwave playlists, and keeping up with new releases. Without your support, I would be forced to shut down the blog and playlists, (something that happened in early 2019).

Your contribution here directly leads to new content and regularly updated playlists, which gives you access to great new music and puts a monthly paycheck in the pockets of your favorite artists (which might also be you!)

Thank you for your continued support here, without you none of this would be possible. Here's to the next goal!
