Synkro Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Synkro's 2015 debut 'Changes' was an excellent slab of evocative electronica that no Burial loving household should be without. While Joe McBride does all he can to live up to this claim with a new record it's time to have a retrospective of his earlier work. These tracks show his formative years spent weaving warm sonics and emotional melodies into a satisfactory whole.
For those of us who couldn’t get enough of Synkro’s debut album Changes, the British dubwunderkind has invited some of his favorite producers to remix his tracks. And so Sven Weisemann, Legowelt and DBridge all provide some excellent interpretations of Synkro’s work, ranging from minimal techno to Detroit house to ambient dub.
Synkro has turned out nigh-on forty releases over the years, but this is the very first full-length album he has released. Changes moves in and out of soothing ambient drifts, always eventually being joined by carefully-crafted beats. Nice to see that Synkro has adapted his sound to the format. Out on the Apollo label.
UK producer Synkro (aka Joe McBride)'s fourth vinyl release is a nostalgic documentation of his move from the vast sprawl of Manchester back to his childhood town in rural Derbyshire. Atmospheric and soundscape-y, this is Synkro's most emotional work to date. Four track EP on 12" vinyl on Apollo.
