That is the purpose of Starter Kits. Want to explore an artist with 10 or more releases and don’t know where to go to get the best representation? What about those all important scenes that spawned genres or important artists? Or the labels that did the same thing? Let The Synaptic’s Starter Kits section guide you in your road to music discovery with our suggestions, reviews, stories and insight into what might be an otherwise overwhelming labor of discovery.
