Sacramental are Dave Lievense (one half of Psycatron) and Billy Nasty, who first met at the Brighton Music conference through mutual friend, Phil Kieran.  They were already aware and respectful of each other's work but had never met face to face.  As Dave Lievense says: “I was well aware of Mr Nasty's work through his [Radio 1] Essential Mix, way back in ‘93/’94… I think it was one of the first shows and I was a religious listener at that point.”  Several pints later, the pair had bonded and soon hatched a plan to record together.  “We decided to pull resources and reinvent the wheel!”, continues Dave.

A 3-day/night recording session in Belfast followed, culminating in these tracks that now form their debut ‘Bad Blood EP’.  “The tracks are influenced by early rave, techno and hardcore classics”, says Billy Nasty, “they’re looking at the past through the lens of the future.”

The EP’s title track, ‘Bad Blood’ is driving techno that packs a serious punch from the onset, followed by the deeper ‘Entheogen’ with its opening like a ticking bomb.  ‘Angels Trumpet’ is next and it doesn’t hold back the bass, before the wobbling ‘Morning Glory’ closes the vinyl version.  The ‘Entheogen Vox Mix’ with its snappy vocal cut up will be available as a bonus track on the digital release

The pair are already planning their next session, so it looks like there’ll be a lot more to come from Sacramental.
