sect says it’s all for you

It's All For You

London-based Sect Records create technoid grooves for the mind, body and feet. They draft in like-minded souls from elsewhere to help them out where necessary. The collective go darker and deeper than most, creating the sort of brilliant deep and techy grooves that resonate with your very soul. Disc one is the synthier of the two and features winners such as Jolka’s blissful "Two (Going On)" and D-Knox’s intense "I’m Sorry Remix". Disc 2 is a little less melodious and slightly more hard-hitting, where peaks include Casual Violence’s bewitching "Acceptance Of The Fact At Hand" and Fanon Flowers’ hypnotic "Invisible Life". It’s All For You is a winning technoid collection.

Sect will release It’s All For You on September 16th, 2011.

playlist/selection – september 2009

(in no particular order)

5 essential stuff

  • Tribe – Rebirth [Community Projects/Planet E]

    Wooaw woaw wooooaw. (What can I say ?)
  • Deetron – Zircon/Orange [Music Man]
    [ MM 148 ]
    I am a fan of everything Sam Geiser has done with Music Man, and I think this is the best thing he’s done to date. So simple but insistently brilliant.
  • Jeff Mills – The Drummer [Purpose Maker]
    [ PM-022 ]
    More Mills(art) loveliness.
  • Trish Van Eynde – Subject Belgium [Subject Detroit]
    [ SUB-033 ]
    Fantastic funkiness, straight forward Subject Detroit music. Trish Van Eynde is on fire.
  • Silent Servant/Santiago Salazar – La Noche/La Minoria [Historia y Violencia]
    [ H&V 002 ]
    Those 2 are as nice as always, I like what Historia y Violencia label is doing at the moment.

5 novelties (* all in promo status.)

  • Jolka – The Jolka Experience [Sect] / Davor O. – Transitional Objects Remixes [Matrix]
    [ Sect 6 ] [ Matrix 20 ]
    10/10 (The Jolka Experience). No need to say more… "Transitional Objects Remixes" is a simply awesome package of mixes. This is the best thing Matrix has done in a while.
  • Traxx – Faith [Nation]
    [ NAT-007 ]
    Classic, great forward thinking house music. Jack your body !!
  • (A guy from D) – (A track on A-Side) [(An UK label)]
    (I can’t tell you any details yet……) That D guy returns to an UK quality techno label with sweet, sweet techno stuff. This is what Detroit techno soul is all about.
  • Rennie Foster – Songs For Homeless Housers [Greta Cottage Workshops]
    [ GCW 003 ]
    Foster goes house in his own fashion. ‘Butterfingers’ is a really amazing tune, just class production all the way.
  • Mick Welch – Morphological Construct EP [Elektrosouls]
    [ ESR-001 ]
    Reminiscent of B12′s work, great melodic stabby winner on new Crawley-based label to definitely look out for.

5 oldies

  • 69 – 4 Jazz Funk Classics [Planet E]
    [ PLE 65307-1 ]
    The first record I ever bought – back when I was 14 years old. I must have listened to this stuff a thousand times back then. ‘Ladies & Gentlemen’ sounded like nothing else I had heard before and I still love it. C2 always makes my day.
  • 69 – Lite Music [Planet E]
    [ PLE 65307-1 ]
  • 69 – Sound On Sound [Planet E]
    [ PLE 65307-1 ]
  • 69 – Pungtang [Planet E]
    [ PLE 65307-1 ]
  • The Detroit Experiment – The Detroit Experiment [Planet E]
    [ PE 65272-1 ]

definitely a name to watch

[ Sect 6 ]

After the entire "For Whom The Bells Toll", Luka Baumann is back on Sect Records with his new project and moniker, Jolka. Baumann gets deep as fuck on "The Jolka Experience". The whole record is definitely great – I love the warm and lush chords, the deep vibes. This is the most beautiful and deep sort of techno record I’ve heard in a while. Hurrah !

Preview clips of all tracks here [The Jolka Experience by Jolka]:

Sect Records will release The Jolka Experience in September 2009.

featured label sect

leave a comment

Producers employing the original principles of techno music to create and inspire future sounds for the dancefloor.

The producers appearing on the label typically have a substantial back catalogue of their music released on vinyl. This is one reason why they are featured, as a mark of respect and a continuation of their output through this medium, so well suited to the style and performance of the music.

Sect is spectacular

Sect is respect
