Throughout the mixed album you’ll hear a stream of underground productions, with pummelling basslines, dreamy vocals, jaunty techno and groovy tech house. To kick off the album will be an official intro featuring deep house vocalist Cari Golden, who’s a legendary underground vocalist known for her recent work with Pan-Pot and Anja Schneider to name a few. 

The first track of the album Whats Inside, brings a deep house element to Relentless with its slow sexy baseline and mesmerizing melody. Nothing To Hide sweeps in with its groovy baseline, quirky kick drums and lustrous vocals. Centipede is a tech house record offering its underlying effects and hi-hats throughout. Electric Era featuring Fritz Helder (Azari & III Vocalist) is a proper house track, which eludes classic underground vibes into the album.

Munic brings out the techno side of Relentless. You Were The One moves into a darker and more ominous sound. Maintaining a strong beat, this track encompasses more underground qualities, with a build up of synths, reverberating claps, and white noise accompanying the breakdowns. A simply tasteful vocal gives the track lyrical imagery.  

Need I Say More starts right in with a sharp, and pumping kick beat, and classic clap to catch your attention right off the bat. Trailing in is a soulful vocal sample, that leads you into a strong and powerful bassline. The dominant vocals that are accompanied by the swelling bass, ride throughout the track right up to the end. My Neighbours Hate Me kicks off with a contagious tech-house energy, driving into a smooth bassline. It Doesnt Matter - resonates a true underground sound, as the drop falls into a techno frenzy at the breakdown. Teardrop - This euphoric record embodies old school progressive, combined with new age tech-house. With uplifting, dreamy vocals from Jamie Lee Wilson, Teardrop will lift you off to a place of nostalgia. VNDERGROUND - True tech house at its finest, Sydney Blu translates her craft throughout, as VNDERGROUND takes over with its immediate intro, which swirls into a vortex of a sense or urgency. Mad World - The track features a cover from the talented Rachael Starr of the timeless 1980's hit "Mad World" by Tears For Fears. Playing with a housey energetic beat, and a deep sexy groove. Little Things - With its percussion filled intro and clapping bassline, this record pulls you down the rabbit hole with its tantalizing energy. 

Relentless showcases Sydney Blu’s true musical style, which originates from her roots in the Toronto underground music scene. Sydney Blu’s Relentless album will undoubtedly be relentless to dance floors worldwide.
