Synkro

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Synkro, a Manchester-based electronic producer. Synkro shares many of the musical fascinations of Flow State: Tangerine Dream, Machinedrum, Zomby, Burial. Synkro’s own music is an evolutionary branch of the sound family that these pioneers… pioneered. Images, released in May, combines '80s synths and ambient progressions with driving drums and breakbeats. Changes, the debut LP, is darker and dubbier. Memories (2008-2011) collects Synkro’s “formative” tracks from those years; the album demonstrates the influence of Burial and an obsession with two-step.
