"Meet the Decline' is the third episode of downliners sekt's trilogy with Barcelonan bass music label disboot records in co-production with dsekt[dot]com. Lurching from a subbass drenched dream, Downliners Sekt continue to surprise, confound and delight with this, the final in their trilogy of 12'' explorations into shattered electric soul music. Having turned heads with their intense, abstracted and very personal approach to bass music in previous releases, this new record surprises us once more with the duo retracting their teeth, and baring their broken hearts in these 4 soul-filled gospel hymns for a technological apocalypse. Mutated guitars wind their way around hypnotic digital syncopations and ghostly choral textures, uplifting and menacing in equal parts. This is the third and final installment of a trilogy started exactly 12 months ago with the release of the surprising 'Hello lonely, hold the nation' EP which was followed 5 months later by a clear statement: 'We make hits, not the public'. Their new sound has seen rapturous critical reception, their audience growing leaps and bounds with the ongoing trilogy campaign, which, since the beginning, has received wide spread support. From radio bass evangelists like Mary Anne Hobbs and Rob Booth (both of them have commissioned exclusive mixes for their respective shows); to prestigious record stores like Sounds of the Universe and Boomkat (receiving category of single of the week on both places); having being positively reviewed by The Wire, Resident Advisor, Fact, Mixmag, Playground and many other magazines and webzines. The record has also received massive support from different artists around the world, among them The Bug (King Midas Sound), Joshua Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), Mount Kimbie, King Cannibal, Fran├žois K and Hollywood movie director Darren Aronofsky. Enjoy and spread the word." (Downliners Sekt)"
