S Y Z Y G Y X • Luna Blanc and Josh Clark have always had a passion for art/creating. Josh has an extensive background in electronic music and audio engineering; formerly known as DJ Impulse, he used to make music under monikers Sinthetix/Corrupt Souls in the drum ’n’ bass genre, gaining worldwide recognition in the scene before permanently retiring from it. Luna has always experimented with keyboards and music composition from a young age, but pursued photography, writing and film in college—constantly involved in the arts throughout her life. Once Luna and Josh met, it became obvious after just a few months that they would be making music together.
To keep it interesting, they're always taking turns on everything in their sound: vocals, arps, riffs, bass, drums, pads, and the production/engineering of the different aspects of their sound. There is nothing in the process of making music that one does more than the other, in the attempt to explore both artists capabilities. Every single aspect of their work, from making sound from scratch to EQ’ing and engineering the sound is made by either Luna or Josh, and is what makes two artists one S Y Z Y G Y X. Josh and Luna continue to grow and learn about sound by also mixing and mastering all of their own music. They work from their home studio in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and continue to evolve within their sound.
S Y Z Y G Y X’s first EP, Hex’n Equinox, was released in 2018 on Cleopatra Records. As they experimented with their sound and in trying to find themselves in their music, they, later in 2018, released their sophomore EP, Broken Mirrors, under their home label, Burning Grave Records. As they progressed with their composition and engineering, they signed their next EP, Encounters, to German label Cold Transmission, and in 2019 released their debut LP, Is That All There Is, under home label Burning Grave Records. Their second LP, Fading Bodies, was released in the fall of 2019 under the label partnership of Negative Gain Productions (US) and Cold Transmission (EU).
