Marking the April relaunch of R&S sub-label Apollo Records, an imprint famed for releasing the likes of Aphex Twin, DJ Krush and Cabaret Voltaire, is Synkro’s Broken Promise EP. In his characteristically profound style, the four-track EP comprises atmospheric soundscapes populated with sparse percussion, elysian synths and deep bass. It’s the best thing I’ve heard from Synkro since last year’s ‘Look at Yourself’, which is big praise because the few releases between now and then have been pretty fucking good too. From the graceful persistence of the title-track to the dying embers of ‘Knowledge’, this is a beautiful way to rekindle the Apollo story.
Broken Promise EP is out April 2nd on Apollo Records.
