With a strong and steady stream of releases between 2008-2011, traversing labels such as Smokin’ Sessions, On The Edge, Dubbed Out, OpenEarz, Z Audio, Exit, Box Clever, Pushing Red, Brownswood, Blackout Music, Critical and Warm Communications, Syknro has proved himself a force to be reckoned with. Synkro’s track “Departure” was featured on Med School’s “New Blood 010” compilation album and “In Transit” was on the follow up “More Blood” EP.
