In the session selection hotseat this week, following in the footsteps of recent guest DROKKR, another producer from County Cork, Ireland – Syn.

Syn steps up with a 37 minute producer slammer of a session. Part of PROCSS – an Irish techno & bass collective – Syn is a young talent, and name to watch. Dynamite in the studio, and not too shabby a DJ either. She holds down Wasteland, her monthly slot on futuremusic FM – each and every time digging out tracks you need to go find. I briefly met her two years back when PROCSS invited me to play their event. She provided an impressive heavyweight grime selection warmup, that together with P-Hocto, was a tough act to follow.

On October 25th her self-titled EP will drop on Flood – the label she co-runs with fellow Cork bass producer Tension.

Syn deconstructs the dystopian drum pallet of her track ‘Exile’ from ;Flood Volume 1′, and contrasts it with bright and hopeful melodic structures. The result is a balanced mix of emotive yet functional club material.
