Melodies International are glad to step forward with their latest reissue and 19th release, exploring the sounds of London locals Synchrojack: Daylight and 900th Lifetime, two slabs of mid 90s UK house at its best. MEL019 will be available in January in vinyl 12-inch format. Melodies International is a reissues record label based in London founded by Floating Points in 2015, dedicated to unearthing, restoring, contextualizing and offering new leases of life to the best of scarcer and lesser known soul, disco, jazz, house and beyond. Bio: Originally from Portsmouth in the UK, Synchrojack is a London based production duo formed by Dean Slydell and Greg Wheeler in the mid 90s. Both deeply into records and production gear, they connected through figuring out how to set up a shared studio in Dean’s parents’ home and starting to produce electronic music in their late teens. They were completely taken over by the sounds of Detroit and Chicago that were getting imported at the time. Starting out trying to emulate those sounds they loved, tracks by Model 500, Glenn Underground, Lil Louis, Steve Poindexter and Mike Dunn among many others, what came of Dean and Greg’s sessions wasn’t a carbon copy but their own distinctive sound. They began releasing on Russ Gabriel’s mythical UK label Ferox records in 1995 and would go on to release a string of releases throughout the 90s, using the moniker Downlink as well. MEL019 presents two tracks by Synchrojack, one from each of their two first EPs released on Ferox, both in 1995. Above anything, what’s clear listening to Synchrojack is their deep love, knowledge and appreciation for music and their talent as producers, channeling their many influences into their own sound.
