Alisdair Taylor a.k.a. Synchronic, is a South Coast based DJ/Producer who aims to deliver a hedonistic taste of upfront pumping House music.
From playing guitar and studying classical music in school, music was always going to be a dominant feature in Synchronic's life. Much time was spent messing around on keyboards, trying to create 4 bar melodies that emulated dance acts of the time, such as Faithless and DJ Jean.
Towards the end of the 90's, the sound of Trance grabbed Synchronic's attention. Acts such as Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk and Tiesto and their combinations of euphoric synths, and rolling bass-lines ultimately inspired him to begin making dance music.
Synchronic began to make sounds using ejay, which meant that tracks could be put together very quickly. This co-incided with his exploration of the clubbing culture. At this time, Hard House was becoming more and more popular, as well as Hardcore and Drum n Bass.
Some time passed before Synchronic attempted to make any new sounds. In 2005 having been to several festivals and Raves, he started to make tracks again, always electing to make Trance as this was the sound he was most comfortable with. Trying different software such as FL studio and Reason, Synchronic worked on tracks, but for one reason or another, the end product was not there.
Having created playlists for parties, Synchronic realised that mixing would be good to do, but it was'nt until 2010 that he began to do this. In the same year, a trip to Ibiza re-kindled his love for Trance but also opened his eyes to House music. House had always been there and there abouts, but the combination of people dancing outside in the sun to 128bpm beats triggered something and he now wanted to make House.
In 2011, Synchronic spent time recording mixes for feedback online. Attempting to make House tracks, he still found difficulty getting an end product and mostly resorted back to Trance. However, in 2012 with a fresh look on things and a change of software he has now developed his House sound. Using Ableton, Synchronic has developed his sound. 2012 saw him team up with friend James McConville a.k.a. DJ Filthy J to launch record label Filthy Sounds. Several tracks have been released on Filthy Sounds, and the label is adding artists to the roster, with producers from Slovenia, Italy and U.S.A.
The future looks bright for Synchronic and Filthy Sounds!
