Co-founded in 1993 by Dylan Hermeljin (aka 2000 and One) and SandyHuner, but now ran solely by Dylan, 100% Pure is Amsterdam’s longest running techno label, releasing early works of Steve Rachmad, Jerome, Stefan Robbers and Orlando Voorn, just to name a few.
Now, Andre Crom steps up with his debut for 100% Pure with Syncopate EP. Andre Crom has a quality discography stretching back over ten years full of diverse house/techno cuts, previously releasing on labels such as his own OFF Recordings, Freerange Records and Exploited.

Syncopate is Andre’s most peaktime EP to date. The title track’s kick skips below arich supply of percussion while being pulled along by an effective ‘Syncopate’ vocal line. 100% Pure’s label owner 2000 and One’s remix intensifies Syncopate adding an extra couple hours through the night, with faster percussion rolls and creature-like synth call and response lines. Ignition contrasts with it’s breakdowns. The word ‘Ignition’ acts as a tool to contrast the wet and dry phrases while a modulated bassline bounces around throughout, emphasizing the overall movement of the percussion.
Syncopate EP by Andre Crom on 100% Pure is being released digitally and on vinyl on the 1st of May.
