        Cyte - Slow Scream ep (emp024)

        Cyte hails from London, but since growing up as a teen in Cumbria, his heart
        has remained firmly in the North. He worked for "the man" for many years and
        was a self-confessed Nathan Barley for a while. But, having seen the error
        of his commrecial ways, he now makes music and film from a little hidey-hole
        in the South Lakes, away from the hustle-and-bustle of Soho, where he can
        actually find the time to think and write.

        At times his music is quiet and melodic, with romantic, orchestral sweeps of
        piano and strings, or delicate electronic sequences fused with oriental
        acoustics. But there's always an underlying tension which can unleash itself with
        dirty beats exploding in your ears and samples which are twisted and
        re-sampled to the 'nth degree. Anything goes, and quite often everything does

        the critical and commercial success of their first single and look set to blow
