Syn Cole (also known under the names: DNS Project[1], Lensflare or Clashback. His real name is René Pais) is an Estonian DJ and Producer of Electro and Progressive House. He was discovered by the Manager of Avicii, Ash Pournouri.

He is Born on March 24 1988 in Pärnu, Estonia. He attended music school for seven years where he studied piano. About he's personal life is not much more known.

Early 2013 he had his first release on Avicii's Label 'LE7ELS' with a remix of Avicii's Song Sillhouettes. After that he had his first own release called April on LE7ELS. After a few remixes he released his second Single on LE7ELS too. Miami 82 with an edit from Avicii was released on 31. December 2013. Syn Cole's musical style is electro based. On the first releases in 2012 and early 2013s he made melodic songs but with dirty electro elements in it. After his third single 'Bright Lights' he changed his musical style a little bit. The songs are still melodic but the dirty electro elements are (mostly) gone. PUMP! and May are the only two songs that have a dirty electro drop. Most of the other songs have a simple melodic progressive house drop (or chorus).

Rene uses in many of his songs the same drum samples. As DNS Project (where he produces Trance) and as Syn Cole there are the same Kick and Clap Samples. The Kick and the Claps are very Attacky and short, to give the bass more space.

In the Remix "California Love" (which released on April 2016) he used the same Synth as in Miami 82. He also uploaded a little behind the scenes Video of the remix where you can see Syn Cole's DAW (Cubase). There you can spot a layer called "Miami82ish" (at 0:16)

Since "The Daze" Syn Cole's Musical style is a little more chill than the older stuff.
