Electro Review

Cygnus – Connection Error

Craigie Knowes – Release: 03 February 2020

Dallas based producer Cygnus debut release on Glasgow’s label of the moment, Craigie Knowes. He programs his beats funky and the chords deep. Five tracks of timeless electronic soul music. An accomplished piece of musicianship. What more is there to be said?

‘Timeless’ is meant as a compliment. Trends come and go but some remain constant. While innovation is a feature of autonomous art, trend following is a product of the culture industry. Electro may be ‘on trend’ now but the best producers have all been doing it for some time and will still be doing it for some time to come, regardless of the ebbs and flows of the marketing machine.
