Sarathy Korwar - 'Remember To Look Out For The Signs'
Published 1 November 2022 by AD

Following the singles ‘Utopia Is a A Colonial Project’ and ‘Remember Begum Rokheya’, ‘Remember To Look Out For The Signs’ is the third track taken from Sarathy Korwar’s new album KALAK – an indo-futurist manifesto.

KALAK is the palindromic form of Kal – a Hindi/Urdu word meaning yesterday and also tomorrow – and represents the ancient/futuristic cyclical rhythm coined by Sarathy that makes up the heart of the record. Nowhere is this represented more than on ‘Remember To Look Out For The Signs’, where Korwar's rhythms close out the record and bring things full circle, ready to begin again.

KALAK will be released on November 11th in three vinyl editions (on black, dark green, and for a special Dinked Edition, crystal clear vinyl) and a CD, each featuring a different cover image. All vinyl editions include an 8-page booklet, created by Sijya Gupta, with Korwar’s notes on the concepts behind the project. The Dinked Edition, available exclusively from select independent UK record shops will also include a rotating card KALAK rhythm wheel. Unfortunately, as is often the case these days, the physical release date will be pushed back outside of the UK and Europe due to shipping delays. We will update this with a firm date when we have it.

Pre-order/pre-save now.

Korwar will be making a small number of live appearances around the release of the album, to be followed by wider touring in 2023. Tickets are on sale now and you can find more information on our live page. | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Live Dates |

Decius - Decius Vol. I out now
Published 4 November 2022 by DM

In need of a little pick me up? Aren’t we all? Step this way…

Decius Vol. I, the debut album from Decius, is exactly what you’ve been looking for, if you’ve been looking for the very finest acid house and disco the United Kingdom has to offer.

Decius are brothers Liam and Luke May, founders of Trashmouth Records, together with Quinn Whalley (Paranoid London/Warmduscher) and Fat White Family frontman Lias Saoudi. It’s heady stuff. Pure unadulterated 303 hedonism.

The Quietus describe it as “a ManDisco Manifesto, a sordid thrill of an album that’s both hilarious and hardcore" and declare it "the best album of the year” in their album of the week review.

All that’s left for you, is to give it a listen, then buy the limited Imperial Purple double vinyl and the T-shirt (the CDs are running late for a change).

Decius are celebrating the release of Decius Vol. I at Venue MOT in London on November 17th. You ought to attend. | Facebook | Instagram | Youtube |

Sarathy Korwar - KALAK out now
Published 11 November 2022 by DM

Sarathy Korwar’s groundbreaking new album, KALAK, is out now. Following 2019’s award winning More Arriving album, Korwar once again presents an immersive, fully-formed evolution of his sound and vision. An Indo-futurist manifesto, it sets out to describe a route forward, while celebrating a rich South Asian culture of music and literature, which resonates with spirituality and community. Meticulous production comes courtesy of New York electronic musician, DJ and producer Photay, translating these communal rhythms and practices into a timeless electronic record.

In contrast to the direct nature of More Arriving, KALAK is a more nuanced and contemplative record, while maintaining the urgency of its predecessor. From the darkness and friction emerges a new energy to imagine things differently. There’s a spirituality and warmth at play in the polyrhythms, group vocals and melodic flourishes.

The KALAK rhythm is the fulcrum upon which the 11-track project balances. After an intense period of reflection and note-making, Korwar boiled this down to the circular KALAK symbol. He’s put this explainer video together to shed more light on it.

If you’re wondering what the press have to say, here’s a little selection:

5/5, The Guardian - Global Album Of The Month

“An indo-futurist manifesto via sophisticated and intense rhythmic investigations”
4/5, Mojo

“This is rebel music as passive resistance, blissfully embodying change”
8/10, Uncut

Go deeper into Korwar’s world with his recent takeover of the Bandcamp Weekly radio show and his Indian Folk Takeover on NTS. Both well worth a listen.

KALAK is available in three vinyl editions, black, dark green and a special Dinked Edition crystal clear vinyl, plus on CD and each with a different cover image. All vinyl editions include an 8-page booklet, created by Sijya Gupta, with Korwar’s notes on the concepts behind the project. The Dinked Edition, released in a numbered limited edition of 400, is available exclusively from select independent UK record shops and will also include a rotating card KALAK rhythm wheel.

KALAK is in record shops in the UK & Europe now, with the physical release for rest of the world at a later date.


Korwar has a run of dates with his band this later this month and they play Brick Lane Jazz Festival in April next year. We were fortunate enough to see them debut KALAK live at Le Guess Who? festival last night. It's the start of something very special.
