Lost Here EP
Apollo Records
Street: 12.01.13
Synkro = dBridge + Eskmo + James Blake
Synkro’s latest release is a boundary pushing experiment that showcases the artist’s skill with tempo, percussion and style. This EP reflects the softer, more experimental side of dubstep that got its start in the UK. Dreamy vocalist Robert Manos graces half of the EP and makes the album easy to listen to. Each track is fairly similar, but “Fading Lights” deserves some recognition for the intricate way in which Synkro alters the speed of the piece without becoming too overwhelmingly down-tempo or D&B heavy. I don’t think the tracks are all that functional in a big party setting, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t perfect for a more intimate one. –Kamryn Feigel
