Myles Sergé makes his debut on Dan Curtin’s seminal Metamorphic Recordings with the 3-track ‘Syntax Error EP’.
Myles Sergé is a DJ, musician and recording artist who has released on a vast swathe of labels that as well as Metamorphic, also includes FEROX, Caduceus, Knotweed, Ilian Tape, Sweatshop, Night Drive Music, Thema, Pushmaster Disc and his own imprints (MS), RE(FORM), Space, (MS), and Dosed Recordings. He describes himself as a “reclusive perfectionist”, whose haunting production sound reflects influences from early Detroit and Chicago electronic music. But Myles has a style of his own that blurs the lines between techno and house. With his first introduction to techno back in the late 80’s he has continued to nurture his love for electronic music by DJing and producing, while more recently he also teamed up with long time friend and mentor Donnell Knox (D-Knox from Sonic Mind) to create Såure Music Distribution.
‘Syntax Error’ itself, utilises the cut-up vocal sample to full effect for a relentless, throbbing techno drill, while the intrepid ‘Agus’ delivers depth and snap to its tough Chicago-style groove. ‘Tolo’ then launches with stripped-down drum and cymbal work before the gentle melody takes it to a new direction on this final cut.
