You may associate Syndicate with an electronic dance party, a psychedelic visual ride fortified with audio experimentation or a local and international DJ set. Either way if you recognize the name, you might know that it has become Singapore’s label tastemaker and trusted audio-visual collective that has always been an outstanding groundwork of electronic music aficionados collaborating together to unearth talents in the scene.
What started as a segment with the aim to expose undiscovered talents within the electronic genre and urging them to showcase their artistic piece, Beat Invitational sessions curated by Syndicate subsequently became an outlet for young bedroom electronic producers to lay bare their skills and creativity instead of merely carving out a profession in their rooms by using personal computer as a centerpiece of their work.
In conjunction of the recent Singapore’s National Day, Syndicate has gathered together a worthy compilation of selected tracks from some of the brightest emerging homegrown and regional producers seen during The Beat Invitational series including Malaysian electronic act, Mushroom Buttons and it’s available now for free download – “it’s a fitting tribute to all those who have contributed to this wonderfully inspiring series, and it’s only the beginning.” – Syndicate
