Kicking off the mix with the raw sounds of humpback whales, it’s quickly evident that this is the right set for your quarantine Monday. Apollo Records regular, Synkro has recorded one hour of far out electronica that might just fit whatever your situation. Focused on creating a recording of ‘whatever inspires [him] to experiment’, the Manchester-based laces a trippy tone in this downtempo set.
The all vinyl mix takes a stripped approach to his more percussive recent originals. Hear Rephlex-signed Bochum Welt mixed into Synkro’s own original before results in back to 1980’s ambient keys by Michael Brook. From start to finish it’s certainly a journey through past, present and future of the genre.
