Various Artists – [2017] Music for Sputnik-1 Vol. 1

Oldschool future sounds. Slight similarities with the original Blade Runner soundtrack.

To celebrate the 60th birthday of the first satellite in space, this compilation contains 10 tracks from mostly Russian artists with retro sounds, effects, aiming for space-themed instrumental tracks. Overall, I like the result very much:

Sputnik by Tenth Cloud scores both high in style and rhythm. Even the harmonic progression mid-song goes well.

That Seems Remote by Lost Radiance has a melody that beautifully conveys its “vast distance” theme.
