Computer Music Review: Sy & Unknown – Essential Hardcore 8/10
Monster Sounds present their release in conjunction with Sy and Unknown, a superb collection of fresh and inspirational Beats, Sounds and Samples for producers of Hardcore and Rave Music styles.
Sy & Unknown, both DJs as well as producers, formed Quosh Records in 1994 and turned it into one of the leading Happy Hardcore labels of the mid to late ’90s. The two first met at a Fusion event in Farnborough, Hampshire.
DJ Unknown had been producing tracks for some time, and DJ Sy spun many of his records. The two decided to collaborate on some tracks, the first being “Are You Ready” (Hectic Records, 1994). They are known as some of the best producers in this style. We are very proud to bring you this fresh and exclusive sample collection which brings all the audio tools that producers of all forms of Harcore and Hard Dance will need to make blistering new tracks with.
