KICK that habit MAN!
HYPE: a big firework of bright colors, ebullient young love, soaring through a sunrise sky, teetering on the verge of a new beginning. A new understanding. It’s a door out into the garden. Neverending horizon.
CHILL: a comedown, travel without weariness. A level up, a bath, a nap. It’s a longing, it’s a healing, it’s a pausing, it’s reflecting. A necessity in the cycle of life.

CHILL/HYPE, a warm hour of remixes and reimaginings from Syna So Pro, was born over nine First Fridays in 2019, when Syrhea Conaway channeled exhibitions and artist statements into gallery-filling sonic lifeforce at the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis. Originally it was filler, retreads of old stuff to pad out evening-length art party sets of original music. But the fans and artists loved how the sounds found an emotional essence, a purity of Syrhea’s vision.
The songs are from her albums “Loop Talk Vol. 1&2″ (self-released, 2014-15) and “VOX” (FPE, 2016). Syrhea poured them with her beautiful soul into the Syna system… then poured again… and poured and repoured, mixed and remixed. Triggered and layered vocal parts on a pad, then mixed in stardust. Simmered until it shimmered. It’s dessert now, cream and light and a little fluffy. Now they’re here for practically everyone to hear: go ahead, take that mental HOLIDAY!
