It was a chilly night as the Undrgrnd Crew approached the Brooklyn Rave locate in Williamsburg. It always hard to find the BK raves till you stumble on a heavy bass drop turn and see some big security guys and a kids that just are clearly not locals.
That is how we stumbled on the awesome duo James & Will of Synchronice at Public Assembly as they were getting in a last minute prep for their set. As the night was building up Synchronice were taking note of all the music being played and planning out their upcoming set knowing that they had to be ready for take over from any of the many genres of EDM the previous DJ could be ending his set with.
Check this set out while you read to get an understanding of Synchronice’s style.
While we were listening to some dubstep & DnB James and Will indulged us in a little chat mainly about their past, present and future. It was interesting to note that just like many producers turned DJs Porter, 3lau, skrillex…. they didn’t really get on stage jump on the CDJs instead they appeared with a laptop and a passion for EDM. They both recount that it was hectic first time but the risk is worth the reward and they continued on. Eventually picking up an S4/traktor setup and learning on the fly Syncrhonice are now set on CDJs in the near future.
It was interesting to learn that they were big fans of trance and agreed with us that there will be a big push in 2013 towards that genre and have been working on some trancish gems for 2013 :-). They fell there is no need to hold themselves down with just one genre and it could be heard by their set that night they jumped the EDM BPM gamut freely. Also being that they are Producers/Djs not visa versa they were able to incorporate a great deal of originals be it remixes, mashups or edits into their performance, allowing for a very energetic set that kept the crowd on their toes.
We had an amazing time chatting with the duo and then bouncing around to their heavy set and hope that 2013 will be a blow up year for Synchronice with many more shows and tracks. James kill it in England and Will Georgia is going to be a blast. When you make it to NYC again we will be there raging with you!
