referencing Darker Senses EP, 12", EP, TB007

Sync 24 is Philip Bolland, who is also one half of Cultek. With Darker Senses he delivers a very atmospheric little EP that has a powerful psychedelic feel to it. "Sense 1" is a slower spacier track while "Sense 2" brings forth a very harsh and cold breakbeat that commands you to move your body while dark synth pads and noisy synth washes give you a glimpse of a dark and cold future in which man has been enslaved by the machine! Killer dancefloor material! On the flip side, "Sense 3" continues in the vein of "Sense 2" by giving you a powerful breakbeat and again those dark pads and noisy synth washes that define Sync 24's unique style. As with all tracks on this album, psychedelic synth leads arpeggiate over this dark foundation to take you further into the music. "Sense 4" meanwhile sports a driving laser-like bass complemented by some very goa-like (don't flame me for this one ;) synth leads.

A very interesting album, although perhaps a little bit repetitive as the 4 tracks are all variations on each other using quite a few similar sounds. Nonetheless this EP comes recommended and is an excellent addition to the catalogue of Andrea Parker's Touchin' Bass label.
