I know I haven’t posted for ages, so sorry to anyone who’s missed my little broadcasts, but I had to post this right away – it’s a new one by the man Synkro – deep, ethereal, beautiful and cool, as always; this guy doesn’t seem to ever miss a beat.
I have no idea how he does it, but I’m spending a good deal of my free time trying to work it out!
Just kidding (sort of) – but on that note, I’ve been hard at work in the studio, so look out for some fresh new Bluze tracks in the new year.
In the meantime, enjoy this gem, and if you’re into it, you can follow Synkro on Facebook here.

This is the first track I heard by the Submotion Orchestra – I stumbled on it on Youtube, bless it, and was instantly won over by the catchy and beautiful melody. I bought the album instantly, and wasn’t disappointed at all, it’s fantastic.
An altogether different type of dubstep; it doesn’t even feel like the same genre, which is one of the reasons I love dubstep so much – everyone puts their own twist on it.
In this case, it’s a kind of jazz twist; if the Cinematic Orchestra and Sade hooked up with 4hero and got into dubstep, I think this is the kind of thing they’d make. Haunting, beautiful, deep, musical, soulful with a touch of Jazz.. I think Submotion Orchestra are my new favourite band. They deserve to be big. Very big.
A collab by Marina Faib with Lostlojic – This is huge; when the bass comes in at 1:12, it just lifts it to another level; the orchestral strings, piano, it’s almost soundtrack-like, but the beat and bassline keep it underground. Just Brilliant. Inspirational. I’m off to the studio…
