Twenty-four hours after its release, AKUMA II sold out all physical copies.
As the Retrowave genre continues to grow, NRW remains at the forefront of the movement. AKUMA II is another step towards their goal of bringing higher awareness of the genre to the mainstream public. With new projects already on their way, New Retro Wave Records is sure to generate plenty of attention this year.
