Manchester’s Synkro has been developing a unique style of emotional bass driven electronic music for the last few years. His tracks have been shown love from lots of big name producers like dBridge, Instra:mental and – champion of all things bass music – Mary Anne Hobbs. Like Burial before him, Synkro’s tracks use chopped ‘n’ screwed R&B vocals to create haunting ambient melodies.

All kinds of beats come through in Synkro’s tracks, including jungle, garage, 2-step and dubstep, a mixture of influences that turn The xx’s ‘Night Time’ into something altogether heartbreaking.

As a producer Synkro is not defined by one tempo, but his tracks are rarely more moving than when he slows them right down. Tracks like the beautiful ‘Memory’ are bliss.
