      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
      up with the coming release of their debut album. This band is the future..
