DJ Syko - Origins
Release Date: 18th June 2021
Celebrating the Old Skool and the New, this EP will take you on a journey through time; revisiting some of the origins of drum and bass. We start by breathing new life into original tracks from the “DJ Syko - Be Alright EP Candidate Records (CAT004)”; re-mastering and re-engineering these 1994 classics. On the flip side “Playing with Fire” is a fresh new track; showcasing my direction for 2021. Like most artists from back in the day, I was heavily influenced by the 80s hip hop and breakbeat culture. DJs like Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, Marley Marl and many others showed us what we could do with the best “breaks” from old forgotten music. Hip Hop DJs and those influenced by that scene here in the UK became the first drum and bass artists. “Take a Break” revisits the Hip Hop & Breakbeat culture that inspired me back then to make music and still inspires me today. Something for the Original BBoy.
