Systematic have something really special planned for their 100th release.
After snapping necks with his sensational remix for Superflu's Jo Gurt, Bodzin is back alongside Marc Romboy to deliver some more exceptional synthwork.
These two cuts approach perfection... simple, effective arrangement and grandiose chord progressions characterize Keberos, while Styx is an in-depth study on a single arpeggio that gives way to some seriously cerebral textures.
