An Interview with Insik Sate

insik-sate-pic-1.jpgWe don’t know how we got there, nor can we prove that we were there at all, but this interview was conducted in a UFO. There were aliens around, but they were preoccupied, drinking martinis and smoking cigars. You know the type. Big ovan black eyes, small gray bodies, fedoras and tommy guns.

New Release – Insik Sate – PROMOTIONLESS SHAME

Cybies and gentlebots, please join us in welcoming Insik Sate to the roster with his debut release, PROMOTIONLESS SHAME. There is just enough glitch to give you hiccups and more than enough lush melodies to give you goosebumps. Our first artist hailing from The Big Apple brings the hardness of the city but doesn’t leave you stranded on a street corner. No, instead he carries you high above the skyline and dangles you in the air by a sine wave chord while the turbulence plays with your shoestrings. Quit reading — go listen!
