After the remergence of Belgium's R&S records from their self imposed 5 year hiatus as one of electronic dance music's more forward thinking imprints, comes the relaunch of their sister-label Apollo. From the early '90s through 2002 Apollo became one of the most respected labels in ambient techno, having released genre classics by such pioneering producers as Aphex Twin 'Selected Ambient Works 85-92', Jam & Spoon, Mixmaster Morris, Ken IshiiDJ Krush & Toshinori Kondo and Biosphere among many others. The first release is by Mancunian producer Synkro aka Joe McBride titled 'Broken Promise', normally known for his high tempo deep bass driven music, here he slows right down with some beautifully delicate yet hauntingly sounding ambience. On the track ‘Knowledge’ he delves into tabla percusion with deep dubby pads that transports you off to some far away place! Recommended..

Synkro is also offering up a free track 'I miss you' (not on the EP) courtesy of halcyon
