It seems as though those Saulsky brothers of Synchronice finally deemed it time to release their absolutely scorching electro track Threshold and for free download too! Supported by the biggest names in the scene like Porter Robinson and Dirtyloud, it’s not really hard to see why by the end of the track. Pulling a haunting voiceover from an old rave documentary, crunchy electro synths intertwine with driving leads for an absolute win.
I told you that this project was huge when they dropped off the free remix of Radioactive by Imagine Dragons and now you guys can all hear for yourself the monstrous sounds of Synchronice. The Saulsky brothers have made their debut on Datsik’s imprint Firepower Records and with a menacing remix of the labelhead’s own track plus two of their own skull crushing originals and a Seven Lions meets KOAN Sound collaboration with PRYSM. Support the EP on Beatport and congrats again to James & Will for a HUGE release.
Things have been getting a bit busy for those Saulsky brothers of Synchronice. Besides getting some snazzy new press photos like the ones you see up top, they’ve announced that they have a 6/18 release date for the Countdown EP coming out on Datsik’s record label Firepower Records and today they released this remix of Imagine Dragons as some promo material. Already having had a chance to hear the upcoming EP I can safely tell you that these guys have some HUGE material coming up and you should pre-order Countdown EP right now!
This is just too awesome to see. With their remix of I Could Be The One having been blared at full volume over the Ultra Music Festival speakers courtesy of Porter Robinson, the Saulsky brothers of Synchronice have found their track being used again by none other than 3LAU. Their remix is the focus of the third installment of his March Mash Monday series in combination with remixes of Brohammer from Nari & Milani as well as the MakJ remix of All Gold Everything…and the 100000000% overused In My Mind acapella which I’ll try to ignore.
3LAU – I Could Be The Bass (3LAU Bootleg)
Avicii & Nicky Romero – Could Be The One (Synchronice Remix)
Georgi Kay – In My Mind (Acapella)
Topher Jones – Brohammer (Nari & Milani Remix)
Trinidad James – All Gold Everything (MakJ Remix)
Well I’m guessing you can call this a successful weekend for Synchronice. The Saulsky brothers had their remix of Avicii & Nicky Romero’s collab I Could Be The One played out by by Porter Robinson during his magical Ultra Music Festival set at sunset and concurrently surpassed the 15K mark of Facebook fans. The brothers reciprocated the love by giving out their progressive house remix of Blackburner for FREE and further solidifying that these guys are on a B-Line for the top. As with all Synchronice tracks, stay tuned for the second breakdown…that’s where the magic happens.
I really hope that people are willing to let 3LAU shake the tag of just being a “mashup DJ”, although I’m fairly certain we’re past that. This 10th edition of the 3LAU HAUS features a whole assortment of Beatport-topping singles being seemlessly blended with vocals from your favorite Top 40 and electronic tracks. TNJ favorites Synchronice found their way on with their remix of I Could Be The One and it’s awesome to see 3LAU show some love for the Mikkas remix of Unison by Porter Robinson. Justin Blau moves through 22 tracks in 28 minutes with perfect mixing precision and only goes to further the sentiment that he is going to have a MONSTER 2013.
If you wanna find two kids that are just loving what they’re doing, look no further than the Saulsky brothers of Synchronice. They dropped this funky gitch hop track chock full of ferocious bass for FREE this morning and it’s just mindblowing to see how their production has evolved over the last year that I’ve been following their climb. There’s nothing better than a little change of pace and seeing how they can produce everything from moombah to hardcore dubstep to something like this really goes to show you versatile these two are.
And just when I thought that I’d seen it all, here comes Synchronice to blow our mind with a free 6 track EP release that has some unsuspecting targets…just becuase. Listen below to the Saulsky brothers take on Taylor Swift in what can only be described as the perfect way to dub out all that teenage angst that seems to always follow my future wife. I’ve been busy doin real people stuff all day and haven’t been able to listen to all the tracks but I can’t wait to hear what they did with Some Nights by Fun. and they even remixed that track All The Things She Said by t.A.T.u. You know…that music video with the lesbians that now apparently has 32 million views on YouTube…just for the music obviously.
UPDATE: We got a full stream of the EP for you guys to check out!
Last time we got a chance to talk with James & Will Saulsky of Synchronice, they were opening for Dillon Francis at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse and threw down an absolutely unbelievable performance. (You can see their recap video here). Since then, the guys have had official releases on Big Alliance, Into The AM, Funky Element, and Play Me Records and have seen their fanbase skyrocket in size. I had a chance to check in on the brothers and see what they’ve been up to this summer. They went above and beyond and returned the questions with an exclusive guest mix for the site which showcases some of their favorite originals and remixes and even has some of their unreleased tracks! Hit the jump for the full tracklist!
TNJ: So a whole summer’s passed since you guys played at the Dillon Francis show, what’s been the highlight of the season for you guys personally/professionally?
Will: Personally getting recognition from some our favorite producers like Far Too Loud, xKore, 3Lau and others was just an amazing feeling. It’s awesome to know that people we respect hugely have heard and enjoyed our music.
James: Watching our Facebook page blow up from 2000 to 5000 in just a few months has been pretty wild as well. Support from all these people means a lot to us.
TNJ: I was clicking around your Facebook page and was really pumped when I saw that you guys post tutorials for up-coming producers on different parts of electro production. What made you start that and do you guys plan to keep up with it?
Will: Mostly because people kept asking for us to make them haha. We’re definitely gonna keep making them though and it’s great to see how much people appreciate them.
James: We also started doing some UStream broadcasts of our entire production process, which went pretty well, so we would like to do more of those too.
TNJ: One of the reasons that I love keeping up to date with all of your newest stuff is that your versatility keeps everything interesting. You’ve done everything from really melodic progressive stuff to heavy dubstep, moombah, gritty electro…what’s your favorite to produce and your favorite to DJ?
Will: Electro is probably our strongest genre, although we definitely like to mix it up. As far as DJing goes any kind of house music is our favorite. Mixing glitch hop is fun too.
James: I’ve been really into blending trance melodies with driving drops lately. My favorite moments in shows are often during breakdowns and house and trance are great for that. Glitch and drumstep are a lot of fun too.
TNJ: What program do you guys choose to produce on most and why?
Will: Logic Pro because it’s very intuitive and we know it better than any other program.
TNJ: What is each of your favorite songs to have come out this year?
Will: I couldn’t possibly decide honestly, I’m terrible at picking favorites haha.
James: Likewise. Our remix of Sick Epic Dope Bangin by Drop Goblin was the first single we had chart though so it was definitely the best received.
TNJ: I see you guys go wild for the cat meme’s and stuff like that…you guys got any love for the dogs?
Will: Hell yeah we love all members of the animal kingdom. We have a pet cat so that would explain our neglect for canines.
James: I’d love to get a dog but our cat, Midnight, would probably attack us in our sleep if we got one now.
TNJ: Mittens Francis vs. Professor Meowingtons…who ya got?
James: Depends if the fight is on twitter or not. Physically Meowingtons is older and stronger but when it comes to emotional combat Mittens is untouchable. Just look at what he did to Garfield and you’ll see what I mean.

TNJ: What are you guys doing when you’re not focusing on the music end of your life?
Will: Saving baby polar bears from extinction and protecting the Amazon rain forest.
James: And surfing. It’s a nice way to relax after saving the rainforest.
TNJ: I know James is heading back to Syracuse in the real near future, does the space apart affect how you two are able to make tracks?
Will: Yeah it’s tough. There’s lots of emailing and skyping involved and it definitely makes it more difficult to produce together but we make it work.
James: We work very quickly together as well and having school work in addition to being apart makes it a lot harder to finish songs at that pace. If we get really busy again I’ll probably start coming home for a few weekends.
TNJ: I know for sure that I wanna see you guys throw down live again, do you guys have any more shows planned for the upcoming future or collaborations releases you can speak on? Shameless plug time guys.
Will: We’re releasing a free EP of remixes of popular songs very soon and we’re currently finishing up two EPs of originals and we’ll be shopping those to labels in the near future. After all of that’s wrapped up we’re hoping to start playing a lot more shows.
James: That’s pretty much all we can say at this point. There are a few other things in the works but nothing confirmed yet. All I can say is that if any of them work out it would be amazing for us.
Alright bass heads we got a special treat for you today from the brothers Saulsky of Synchronice. This FREE release of theirs comes as a thank you for reaching 2000 likes on their Facebook page and it brings the ruckus for sure. A playful intro breaks down into a filthy auditory assault of wobbles and scratches that’s gonna do huge things this Friday as they open up for Dillon Francis at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse! The TNJ crew will be there for all the mayhem and maybe some exclusive content (hint) so don’t sleep on these guys; you might just miss out on the next big thing!
