I SATELLITE Electro Music

retro futurist minimal electronic new wave analog synth electro pop music


I SATELLITE is the electronic music project of singer/songwriter/synthesist Rod MacQuarrie. Since 1999, Rod has created retro futurist electronic pop music inspired by the music and sounds of the golden era of analog synthesizers – the late 70's and early 80's – using vintage analog synths and drum machines for all sounds and textures.
