KALTBLUT is excited to announce the brand new launch of new electronic agency Syncsmith, a musical project backed by visionary household names and labels such as Houndstooth, Opal Tapes & Versatile Records. Syncsmith’s unique and original ethos caught our attention as it aims to re- affirm the pivotal role of experimental electronic music in the TV, film and gaming industries. Emerging from the one of the most exciting electronic music scenes in the UK, Bristol, the agency has established a compelling vision that will champion and spearhead the back-catalogues of established international pioneers of avant-garde electronica, from the decadent to the dystopian. The new venture recognizes the increasing importance of enigmatic compositions within the creative industries, and therefore has recruited the following pillars of the industry to benefit from the service: Auxiliary, Houndstooth, Versatile Records, Diskotopia, Where To Now, Opal Tapes, Moods & Grooves, Power Vacuum, Debacle, Motor, Dement3d, Shipwrec & Nous Disques.
Launched at the end of last week, Syncsmith aesthetically mirrors the abstract label artwork and conceptual imagery of its collective. In addition, Syncsmith is placing clear emphasis on an “industry only” approach, whereby curated monthly samplers are the chosen vehicle for communicating ethereal soundscapes and emotive compositions to compliment high quality on-screen projects.
And the agency has already gathered a cult following – artist Joe Farr commented “As an artist working on my own productions and sound design for animation and games, partnering with Syncsmith looks like the start of a new musical adventure I’m really looking forward to”. Rob Butterworth, label head of Houndstooth Records also commented “We were really impressed with Syncsmiths proposal and are very excited to work with them. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with them”. For the more tailored, bespoke projects centric to motion picture and cinematic scoring, Syncsmith has commissioned the talents of Beatrice Dillon, Karen Gwyer, Joe Farr, Hieroglyphic Being, ASC and Killawatt with more artists to be announced in the forthcoming months…watch this space.
