Liebe Freund*innen der gebrochenen Beats und der tiefen Bässe:
es ist endlich wieder soweit:
Philomène Robinne aka Philo proves you don’t need decades of experience to understand and push boundaries of a genre. With national and international recognition, Philo’s originally vinyl-exclusive selection has evolved over time into a digital hybrid in the pursuit of the best possible sound. A regular on UK lineups, Philo just played a slot at Londons legendary Rupture and moved between festivals this summer, such as Fusion or croatian Membrain festival.
Characteristics of her eclectic selection involve rough UK bass, which is somewhere between breakbeat, 4 to the floor, dubby bassbin jungle and footwork, with a splash of classic 90s aswell as (progressive) house influences according to the maxim ” keep moving forward“!
Not long ago she started producing and released on Headlight Records, Nice & Deadly, nonesuch, Stereo45, Defrostatica and Miura Records- more to come soon
In the sets of Syncope there is a whole range of drum & bass subgenres to discover. Everything that sounds spherical-melodic, dark and broken or deep and driving is on the plates anyway and everything that sounds somehow different usually does too. As a DJ, Syncope has been on the road a lot in the Cologne area and was a guest at various parties and part of the drum & bass radio show 12 Zoll at the Hochschulradio Kölncampus.
