Outrage presents Backlash 002+New Artists "Secret Society" Feat`d on BBC Radio 1
CAT NO: BLR002
A: GRIND HOUSE / AA: TABLA JAM ZEDCOPTER (SECRET SOCIETY RMX)
FULL RELEASE JUNE 9TH 2008
Backlash 002 presents us with a glimpse of the mindset of upcoming production duo Secret Society:
Side A (Grind House) is a mysterious roller starting out with swirling percussion and minimal keys and giving way to growling sub bass and a gently menacing atmosphere. Spooked out snare rushes contribute to an already ghastly vibe before dropping into unique amen/sub-bass edits. This tune will undoubtedly leave your mind in a suspicious state.
Side AA is an entirely new take on the sounds of South Asia, with a hypnotic future-dub presence taking control on a remix of ZedCopters Tabla Jam. An initial spaced-out sitar invites a darkly intriguing arpeggio. This soon leads way to deep subs and subdued spoken word, accented by the sting of frigid stabs and Bhangra beats. This is an enigmatic approach to South Asian electronica, and we cant wait to hear more from this duo. Words by Cody Jordan

Secret Society (Tohm Tronic & Resonate) are two producers/djs/mcs and brothers that have been in and around the music scene for over 15 years.
Tohm Tronic (AKA The Weaver) has had over twenty record releases over the years, the majority of these with producer Modular under the name Stomp & Weaver. Some stand out tracks were The Underground/Devils Sister on Flex, Satellites & Freaks on Hardleaders along with numerous releases on their own label LABLOGIC. During this time TT was DJing across the country with a residency at the famous Pleasuredome and had support from some of the big players in the game, with plenty of air-play including regular "One in the Jungle" and "John Peel" spins.
During this time Resonate was coming through the ranks learning his trade and Emceeing for a lot of S & W's shows. He also worked on a couple of collaborations and released an EP on Hyper Records.
During the 2000's TT lost the hunger and desire to produce D & B due to the number of formulated and commercial tracks out there. Most gigs were lacking that dark vibe that had motivated him for so long, so he spread his wings and worked on other music projects. These spanned most forms of electronic music and eventually a fully realized Hip Hop project under the name Swampfoot. TT co-wrote and produced an EP and a sixteen track album which Resonate also rapped and worked on. Overall this project was a big success as they gigged with the likes of Blade, Skinnyman and Task Force.
Deep down though the dark beats of yesteryear we're calling and Resonate sensed this, nagging TT to start back on the D & B vibe. Thus Secret Society was born, along with their own record label Digi-Lab.
