23/12/12 - FZV - 'ANTIC.DECAY'' RELEASED TODAY!

FZV - 'antic.decay'

Out today > > > album-length retrospective from the hugely talented FZV - dating from 2002-2010, a period during which Richard released some excellent records for well-respected labels such as his own Anathematica, Ai (now defunct?) & Rag & Bone (as well as contributing to Bad Sekta since our first release).

Masterfully constructing a highly distinctive sonic force that's as bass heavy as it is meticulously crafted, blending elements of 'classic' idm with tekno, proto-dubstep, glitch and pure sonic experimentation, with hugely satisfying results! Also features a granular bath remix of 'no lilies' by Phuq.

13/10/12 - INTONAMORI - 'EAR WEEVILS 2' - RELEASED TODAY (FINALLY)!

Intonamori - 'Ear Weevils 2'

Originally intended for release in 2007, this ep from the reclusive Intonamori finally sees the light of day...

Listening to "Ear Weevils 2" can be a woozy & disorientating experience. Four tracks made equally with traditional & virtual instruments, not many of which escape from extensive processing & looping once recorded. Guitars are twisted into new shapes, Jon's occasional vocals modulated beyond recognition, remnants of found sounds battle for space with walls of analogue keyboards. & then, just when you think you know where it is all heading, up crops something simple & pretty. Even at its most harsh & electronic, under the surface glows a strange warmth, pulsing & flickering...

Some beautiful music here, everything from hard as nails breakcore to lush idm to melancholy orchestral to whatever you want to us call it.

31/05/12 - THE SAMUEL HILLER MEMORIAL FUND - LIVE DATES - RONIN ON PITCHLESS RADIO

The Samuel Hiller Memorial Fund is a charitable trust recently established in memory of a very good friend of many of us here at Bad Sekta. It will work to promote education in church choral music, which Sam loved so much, and hopes to be able to establish a choral scholarship with the money received via donations & any other sources. Sam really was a truly amazing person & is very sorely missed, so if you can spare it a small donation will help do some good work in his name - Please donate by following this link.

Check the live page for new London dates for Oddscene, Phuq & Ryan Jordan, plus appearances from Treen in London & Ipswich... Don't forget this month also brings us World Music Day in London plus a few more secretive events!

Ronin will be providing a live set for this month's Pitchless Radio show - tune in from 20:00(GMT) on Thursday 7th June - links to the stream on the Ill FM site. Don't miss it, will definitely be a phatty!

23/04/12 - SCRUBBER FOX - 'GEEK PIE' RELEASED TODAY!

Scrubber Fox - 'Geek Pie'

The debut Bad Sekta release from Manchester's highly regarded Scrubber Fox is an emotive, imaginative & carefully crafted journey on a mashed up braindance/idm/glitchcore kind of tip. Extra kudos for being named after everyone's favourite Nathan Barley haircut!

Lastboss - 'Xin Who?' (Re-release)

As we like putting music out on the twenty third day of the month, today sees the re-release of 2007's 'Xin Who?'

10/01/12 - BAD SEKTA STICKERS - PHUQ GIG & INTERVIEW

500 more stickers have finally arrived from India (long story!) - have a look at the design on our merchandise page, email us if you want some!

Phuq will be playing some less abrasive sounds than usual on Wednesday the 18th January, at the launch party for a new venue in Dalston, London. More info on the live page...

You can also hear a slightly drunken interview with Phuq regarding the label on November's edition of Ill FM's 'Down the Nile Backwards' show. It's rounded off by a live set at the end & the whole thing seems to be delicately sprinkled with some random distortion. Oh well, c'est la vie!

07/01/12 - ANOTHER YEAR - SLOVAKIAN DISSERTATION - NEW SIGNING: TREEN - GIGS & WORKSHOPS-

2012! Bring on the paradigm shift or whatever. Incidentally, some translations of the Mayan prophecy state that the great change will occur on the 23rd of December 2012 - all hail Eris...

We've started the year by answering some questions on running an independent label for a Slovakian student - if you're interested you can read what we had to say here.

Anyway, the loose schedule for this year runs as below (please bear in mind our semi-legendary "right to change our plans at short notice".

Fidel Castroid - (as yet untitled EP)
Junglismonk - (as yet untitled EP)
Lastboss - (as yet untitled collection of previously unreleased vintage tracks)
Phuq - (as yet untitled EP)
+ a load of others which we'll keep under our hats for now!

& announcing our first new act of the year:

Louisa Yorke & Dave Stitch have formed Treen, a live electronic act that aims to bring raw analogue signals back to the dance. They are joined by acclaimed video director Shortfacedbear, who creates bespoke 3-D projections as part of the set. A link to a 15 minute demo can be found here.

More soon, but for now please check out our newly updated live page for news of gigs & workshops involving our crew.
