In 2016 Devereaux 85 introduced the Synthwave music genre at the Amsterdam Dance Event for the first time in it's history by organizing an event of it’s own. He invited the hottest names in the scene available like Timecop1983, Sunglasses Kid, College and Maethelvin to perform at “1984 Night at the Arcade”.
