“Singular bass music and beyond.
Boards of Canada, dBridge, Autechre, Metalheadz: this snapshot of Synkro‘s influences makes total sense, yet somehow doesn’t come too close to putting actual descriptors on his music. The Manchester producer—real name Joe McBride—has pushed a sort of complex yet emotive 2-step/dubstep/drum & bass fusion since debuting back in 2007, and has been pretty damn prolific in the process. We’ve had his woozy steppers for Smoking Sessions; some of the prettiest ‘drum & bass’ you’re likely to hear for Exit; and even a spot of deep house for Millions of Moments. And there’s been countless different others in between.
On RA.297 he employs a good old-fashioned plot twist to reel you in (we obviously won’t ruin the surprise) and then proceeds to explore the entirety of his far-reaching sound world.”
