Founded in 1996 by James Dean Brown, Narcotic Syntax were re-boosted seven years later:
Since 2003 DJ/producer James Dean Brown and musician/producer yapacc represent the steady, diligent and meticulous production team for the future. Both protagonists enjoyed a perilous musical socialization. They have gathered incredible musical experience by excessively surfing the waves of intelligent absurdity and complex elementariness through the jungle of countless hazardous music genres. Their common driving power is love and passion for the essence of music as primary carrier for emotions. Their output is always aiming at the attainment of the emotional maximum.
What could be more exciting than merging sophisticated electronics and acoustics with sonority and venture into exhilarated Club Funk on an incalculable level to raise the bar to spiralling heights? Each of the nutritious tracks JDB and yapacc have been published to date reveals a musical narcoverse out of which other artists not rarely would create a whole album. The dazzling array of notes equals the colossal sum of permanent energy.
The romantic view of our relevant narcommuniqué will shed some light on our motivation. Actually Narcotic Syntax can be perceived as a freewheeling "band project". So, in case there's a need for incorporating essential skills, sounds or instruments, JDB and yapacc increasingly invite international artists of most different musical backgrounds to join the recordings.
Since late in 2003 Narcotic Syntax are propelling the realisation of an exciting, sensuous concept of blending song and club formats in cooperation with Robert Conroy from New York City, known as chanteuse for the trans-Atlantic 21st century sonic glamour duo Misty Roses. His versatile, incredibly clear, yet powerful voice (which oscillates between the timbres of Scott Walker, Gary Numan, David Sylvian and an adolescent David Bowie) brings back the human factor to the mahogany dance floor.
Actually Robert is the third band member; a common album is in the pipeline. Together they keep establishing and realizing a fine blend of syncopated rhythms, seductive melodies, dope sounds, intriguing resolution and love's dumb mechanics. In doing so, they retain promoting their propulsive groove development within the framework of compositional modes, and the eternal propagation of splendid harmony.
Finally, Narcotic Syntax are proud to announce that Berlin-based guitarist Achim Treu has become the fourth official band member in October 2007, moreover known to be in the current line-up of famous German 80es Neo-Dada pioneers Der Plan, and also performing with Fluffy Target (w/Richard Cameron) and as Dauerfisch.
Narcotic Syntax' releases include 12"EPs on one of the acclaimed German club labels, Perlon Records from Berlin, and on WIR (We in Rhythm), a spin-off from the Cologne-based Treibstoff label. Currently they are working on a new 12"EP/album of pyroclastic flow, including the song Last Outburst of Beauty, blending the club format with 70es psychedelic crowdRock space jam vibes, to be released in 2008.
