Syncro

Biography

Appassionato di musica e di arte, Syncro ascolta, ricerca, produce e propone. Il suo percorso prende avvio dall’hip hop come beatmaker, con lo pseudonimo “Drum”, per evolversi nella dubstep e spaziare nell’electro, con il nome d’arte “Syncro”. Nel periodo in cui firmava le sue strumentali come “Drum”, ha prodotto gran parte dei brani contenuti nei tre album di 2C (Chef e Cosmo) e – in veste di dj – ha realizzato le serate Black Chique, con l’obiettivo di creare eventi con sola musica black in Puglia. Il 2012 è anno fondamentale per l’evoluzione artistica: il cambio del nome d’arte è accompagnato da nuove esperienze. Syncro si classifica dodicesimo in Italia al remix contest della hit dubstep “Make it bun dem” di Skrillex, produce le strumentali per il nuovo album di Chef “Vengo in pace” (Saifam recordings), lavora come dj resident e cura artisticamente i suoi eventi all’Eremo Club di Giovinazzo (Bari) conquistando il pubblico con performance ricche di teatralità e humor. Nel 2013 Syncro pubblica “Crono”, il suo Ep interamente dubstep, trainato dal brano “Humans life faster music”, che meglio sintetizza il concetto dell’album. Il “Tempo” come modernità, progresso-regresso, alienazione dell’Uomo, incapace di seguire la velocità delle macchine, lacerazione dei rapporti sociali. Denuncia e allo stesso tempo presa di coscienza di un processo inarrestabile.

Syncro (Martino Tempesta) has always had a passion for music and art. He found his love for producing through hip-hop, and under the alias ‘Drum’, produced music for 2C (Chef and Cosmo) and many artists in puglia. His musical journey then lead him to DJing, a hobby which quickly became a part of many people’s lives as he organized Black Chique evenings, where the aim was to promote black music in Puglia. 2012 was a huge milestone for Martino as he decided to go down a more alternative path with his work, thus “Syncro” was born. Since then, he has taken inspiration from the huge wave of new and inspiring electronic music, and has even ranked in the top twelve in Italy for the massive “Make it Bun Dem” remix competition by Skrillex. In 2013, the “Chrono” EP was released with modernity, machines and alienation as themes for the hard-hitting dubstep five-track release. He produces instrumentals for the new Chef album "I come in peace" (Saifam Recordings), works as resident dj of Eremo Club (Giovinazzo, Bari) conquering the audience with a performance full of drama and humor. Halloween 2014, “The Grandfather Paradox” was released with NOK Records (London, UK), which includes the same brain-shaking basslines and mind-bending sounds as “Chrono”, but also lightly seasons the whole recipe with some beautiful soundscapes you can really get lost in. The complexity of time, the importance of split decisions and the future repercussions that occur subsequently was an ongoing theme and message to portray for Syncro while producing this EP. His impeccable electronic opus definitely enlightens and inspires, as you explore the depths of the universe and your inner subsconscious on this mesmerizing trainride of contrasting sounds and visions.
