REVIEW: Sync 24 & Silicon Scally – Jack Out EP (Cultivated Electronics CE019 – 2016)
New delivery from the London label Cultivated Electronics is a dream team collaboration by two talented electro artists: the label founder Philip Bolland as Sync 24 and Carl A. Finlow under the Silicon Scally alias.
The A-side leaves nothing to be desired. Sturdy techno bass cut “Jack Out” slams the door open with raw US West Coast funk for 1980s break dance parties and the UK producers are taking good care of the heritage by adding laser gun effects – only Arabian Prince rhymes are missing for a genuine feel.
“Sine Vibes” is an ice-cold and invasive piece, thundering along with crooked synth riffs and rusty vocal effects. The B-side continues with sovereign bass flow with two versions of “Clickjacking”: as expected, the Vox Edit plays with vocal bits and Dub Edit adds some jittery notes, rounding up impressive teamwork by two electro masters.
