Syntax is back with his fourth release, The Space Tapes. I am a huge fan of his first two releases, while the third just didn’t wow me. I admittedly had high expectations, and I also think it was just a little too similar to what he had done before. Well, what a difference a year and a half makes! Now this is still Syntax, so you’re gonna hear his signature sounds. But in contrast to his third release, on The Space Tapes we get a bit more evolution, and on a few tracks there’s even a bit more “soul” (as much as you may think electronic music can have and/or evoke). The highlight has to be Bellatrix, a collaboration with Droid Bishop. The album is reasonably-priced at $10, and that’s for 19(!) tracks.
