You wouldn’t yet know it from the Death Valley-like temperatures, but the summer is indeed nearing its bittersweet conclusion. For Culprit it means migrating our flock indoors, after a season-full of sunburned rooftop memories. But not before shaking our ya-ya’s one more time. The job of ushering the heat out the door falls to a quartet who have spent most of their lives fighting off the cold: Boston-born and -bred, SECT aka Soul Clap, Tanner Ross and Sergio Santos.

Culprit Sessions #17 - FlyerAccomplished producers and DJs all, the boys got together this year and formed a dance music boy band supergroup – possibly, a first (and last) of its kind. Conceptually, the tongue is firmly implanted in cheek, as SECT indulges in its own brand of humor with clever visual references and general air of cryptic goofiness – but musically, this SECT means business. Combining considerable production talents of its members, SECT made its debut on our label in May, its Man of Wisdom EP becoming a significant debut for Culprit as well – its first ever vinyl release. The three track EP of slow burning funk-laden jams received acclaim from a wide variety of tastemakers. Another track SECT has created for Culprit, Thieve $krilla, was featured on a hugely respected compilation for Mule Musiq last month:

In addition to breaking the mold as part of SECT, its individual components have been creating their own deafening buzz. Soul Clap are in the midst of their own Moment in the sun, as their unique blend of R’n’B-infused slowed down house has been conquering all in its path, from Berlin to London, Japan, Ibiza, Mexico and beyond… Tanner Ross and Sergio Santos have also teamed up for some memorable work in the last 12 months…Deep House with earth shattering bass and some disco loving is the name of the game. Tanner and Sergio’s set at Shit Show party was one of the highlights of the Detroit Music Festival weekend for many who witnessed it.
