One of the latest acts signed to the Belgian VLEK label, Sagat plays an uncompromising brand of live techno, and is already meeting with success, including a track from his debut 12” to be featured in upcoming feature in a compilation mixed by no other than Ben Klock.
Sagat’s debut 12” has equally garnered positive reviews, including a good overview from Resident Advisor: "Few Mysteries…’ and ‘Speaking of Which’ owe a debt to the slow-burn pulse of Mark Ernestus; the industrial static of the latter, in particular, is a serviceable Basic Channel impression.
’Spelt Backwards’ is altogether less coy about its dance floor credentials, but it too rides a rather reserved groove, pacified by a synth that squirms and squelches over an otherwise insistent bassline. It’s left to ‘ESC’ to assume the responsibility of peak time banger by way of its cavernous, Grand Canyon-sized kicks, though—funnily enough—the skeletal xylophone riff tempers that aspiration as well. Yes, it may be one of the most straightforward releases Vlek have put out, but it’s also one of their most enjoyable to date." (Ray Philips, RA)
