We ask musicians for 10 tracks, by which they were formed, reformed and cultured and we also ask them to comment on the selection. This time Jack Lever aka Bering Strait could adress themselves to this task. Last year the Mancunian and his mate Joe Synkro attracted lot of attention with their project Kiyoko. Now he is releasing his first solo EP, »Apart«, for the revived record label Apollo Records.

Lost Here EP
Synkro is so much better than this record. We could have called him the sweet-talker of electronic music for quite some time – but now we have to.

Music for plants and people
He was involved in over 900 songs and reached number 1 on the Billboard charts, but Mort Garson’s current fame is based on an encounter with Bob Moog, whom he persuaded to give him one of his synthesizers. A rediscovery.

The new edition of »Dropsonde« comes along with seven bonus tracks. The Norwegian producer Biosphere then radically reinterpreted an entire genre.
