Sectra – Visceral Vibrations

[Artist Highlight]

Sometimes we rely on music to feel things for us, so we don’t have to bear the crushing burden of our emotions all on our own. A powerful thing happens when we hear the darkest pieces of ourselves echoed back at us… We realise that we’re not alone – or maybe we are, but at least we’re okay with...

One of the sound's earliest adopters, however, was Bristol - nurturing and raising the newborn UK underground offspring like a teacher does with a student or parent with child.

Our goal is to revive the series to the same level, frequency and spirit as in previous years - we've no good excuse as to why it's taken so long to get #26 out but the upside of...
