Information of Cylob

Cylob is the alias of UK electronic music maker Chris Jeffs. A trombone player in his youth, he progressed to experimenting with electronic music and recording in his late teens.

At first inspired by early 80's synth-pop, old-school hip-hop and electro, and dance pioneers Art Of Noise, 808 State and LFO, Chris gave a demo tape to Aphex Twin at a gig in early 1993, subsequently signing to his Rephlex label a short time after.

Since his debut, he has released 13 singles and 5 albums on Rephlex, in addition to the EP "Spider Report" for Breakin' Records.
Then followed the harsh dancefloor sonics of "Cylob's Latest Effort" and "Lobster Tracks" (with its Chris Cunningham-illustrated sleeve), pop pastiche with "Living In The 1980s", meditative bells and gongs on "Mood Bells" and the electronic funk and braindance of "CMS 3000" Volumes 1 & 2.

Although Cylob's music is predominantly instrumental, his most well known tracks have been the underground hits "Rewind" and "Cut The Midrange, Drop The Bass" which pioneered computer-generated rapping and singing on top of signature Cylob beats. A video to "Rewind" directed by Mark Adcock and featuring renowned martial artist Chloe Bruce saw a fair amount of MTV airplay on its release in 1999.

Since 1998, Cylob has worked on his own software for creating music, the Cylob Music System.
