Bering Strait
10 Favourites
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.

Synkro
Changes
Synkro has shone with real urgency too often in order for »Changes‘« broad fuzziness to be becoming for the introverted stage hog.

Synkro
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.

Synkro
Acceptance Ep
Synkro picks up where he left it with his Kiyoko-project. What came out is acoustic balm for the soul, melted together with post-rave-melancholy and encouraging future-optimism to a unique bitter-sweet vibe.

Submerse
They Always Come Back EP
Submerse has ordered his groovy, melody-filled arrangements to go on a diet. Now they sound like disdainful Dubtechno, solid, but without any climax.
