Boomkat Product Review:
Synkro's emotional and long anticipated debut album signifies a subtle paradigm shift in terms of production and artistic scope. With nearly a decade of 12" releases under his belt, 'Changes' introduces analog sources to his usually digital palette with harmonious effect, pushing his first ever long player closer into the richer textured realm of his well-acknowledged influences: Oneohtrix Point Never, dBridge, Boards of Canada and Burial. Vacillating widescreen-ambient panoramas with heart-aching pop-electronica touches and scything, ghostly 2-step/D&B signatures, he realises a sound somewhere between his former solo work and esteemed Akkord output with Indigo; framing a more brooding, bruised and succinct silhouette of himself. It's done with a soulful sincerity that shouldn't be sniffed at, and is neatly executed with the kinda production warmth that invites repeated listens.
