SYK

We are proud to present our latest signing; SYK. Better known by their mother as Bastien and Maxime Artigas, they are two brothers from the south-west of France with a love for deep, soulful Drum and Bass.

Early musical influences include Hip-Hop, Dub and Reggae. It was in 2006 when they discovered Drum and Bass at parties in the mountains where they grew up near Toulouse. The pair set to learn how to make it in 2012 and before long a unique style was forming. Always trying to keep soul in their tracks, their aim is to “just do real Drum and Bass” and they have certainly achieved that. Their sound can be likened to Calibre, Lenzman, Klute etc and it is clear this path was a chosen one for these two aspiring producers.

Label boss Exposure says ‘Although these two are newcomers, the music they sent me blew me away. I’m really excited about it, it’s top-shelf stuff’. The forthcoming 4-track ‘Sleeper EP’ on A R Records will see SYK in the highest regard amongst the DnB community. Keep your ear to the ground for audio previews coming very soon…
