List in no particular order of my favourite 80’s Minimal Synth, Underground Synth-Pop, Dark Wave, proto-EBM and related recordings that are available on Spotify.

Most of the Spotify versions came from later vinyl re-releases by labels as Minimal Wave, Medical Records, Dark Entries, Domestica, etc, and some can contain bonus stuff, different covers or altered tracklists.
