i quite like the differences between Synkro and Burial
both make sick tunes
both use rich atmospheres
both have skippy shuffles that filter
burial is predominately on the "london" darkness, urban gritty tip
i hear Synkro more as on a garage re-imagining tip
just think how much "catchier" some of Synkros stuff is compared to Burial, how Synkro's stuff can be put into long deep mixes. Burial isnt interested in these things, he has his own artistic vision, to him quantizing must seem like something he isnt as bothered with compared to getting that right atmosphereic nuance. Synkro does seem interested in teh dancefloor, in the dj, in the garage continuity.
both have there own styles, and production techniques. just cos Synkro also uses atmos and 2step filtered drums doesnt make him seem like a quantized burial. to me his whole approach is completely different to Burials, and the fact that he can be compared so readily to Burial speaks volumes about his production skills.
but hey thats just me
Burial and Synkro need to work on a beat together
thats right i said it! whose with me in trying to make that happen????
