Johan Bengtsson is a Swedish electronic musician from Stockholm, known as one of the many artists that popularized the synthwave genre. His first EP, After Hours, was released in 2009, followed by Current Events and Burning Chrome on Rosso Corsa Records in 2010 and 2011. He explained in an interview of his inspirations being "jazz, cheesy 1950s bossa nova, 1970s motown or 1980s pop", and mentioned Paul Hardcastle, Jan Hammer, and Vince DiCola as examples. His primary software for music is the tracker program Renoise. In 2013, he was contacted by director David Sandberg regarding his film project Kung Fury, where he would compose the majority of the music. Prior to the movie's release, he collaborated with David Hasselhoff for the single True Survivor. Both the single's music video and the movie went viral upon their releases, gaining considerable acclaim. In 2014, he released his third album Interceptor on Mad Decent.

Carpenter Brut is a French electronic music artist whose real name is Franck Hueso, based in Poitiers, France. Little personal information is known about him aside from his French nationality. His anonymity is a deliberate artistic choice in order to place more importance on the music itself rather than the identity of the musician behind it. To date he has released three EPs, which were collected together and released together under the title Trilogy in 2015. He has also contributed original music to a variety of soundtracks. He started writing music as Carpenter Brut with the intention of mixing sounds from horror films, metal, rock, and electronic music. He has toured the United States and Europe, and in 2016 he toured the US with the Swedish heavy metal band Ghost. He performs live with a guitarist and drummer.
Gunship is a British Synthwave band formed in 2010 by Dan Haigh and Alex Westaway and later joined by drummer Alex Gingell. GUNSHIP's music has been described as "influenced by the soundtracks of 80s film, television shows, video games & cartoons" and "a neon soaked, late night, sonic getaway drive, dripping with luscious analog synthesizers, cinematic vocals and cyberpunk values, exploding from the front cover of a dusty plastic VHS case which has lain forgotten since 1984." The band are credited with helping to popularize the synthwave scene and evolving it by adding rock song structure and extensive use of vocals to a predominantly instrumental genre.
