Iskeletor is the music of Turkish artist Kerem Sevinçli, a rising force in the bubbling Istanbul beat scene, Iskeletor is a regular contributor to the Tektosag collective and a coveted performer at the much-revered Istanbul club nights Pixie and Peyote. With Iskeletor, Sevinçli pulls energy from the creative fires burning in the community of independent and experimental Turkish artists, pushing forward a new wave of sound. Distilling the hard edges of noise and experimental music with the bombast and hypnotic structures of sample-based music, Iskeletor’s music plays like a fever state. Hard rhythms swing razor sharp, cloaked in layers of noise and melody, arranged with both a playfulness and a refinement that feels fresh and ready to burn up your speakers.


Served up on pro-dubbed bright purple high bias chrome cassette tapes, and housed in a full color 2 panel double sided J card designed by Turkish graphic artist’s Bora Baskan and M. Kosemen. Mastered for your sound system and your BOOMBOX by Alter Echo.

We are proud to present the self-titled debut album by Iskeletor, a searing 30 mins of fierce experimental rhythmic sorcery for your sound system.

“Jesse Munro Johnson has been kicking out the hypnotically pulsating jams as Gulls for years now, but here, the founder of the experimental groove label Boomarm Nation unveiled a new four-piece live band, playing trance-y, dance-y, dubby space-funk built from congas, a stripped-down drum kit, sax and Johnson’s programmed beats (and occasional trumpet). It was the funkiest set I witnessed all weekend, and as someone who’d actually seen or heard much of lineup previously (I mean, it’s kind of my job), also the biggest surprise.”–  Matthew Singer – Music Editor / WIllamette Week.

SEEKERS Reconsiders The Vampire’s Curse


– SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL Reconsiders The Vampire’s Curse – 

Limited to 100 copies.



Here we find SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL in fine style with this archival soundsystem shocker. In tribute to the classic Scientist LP of a similar title, SEEKERS chops and hacks the dance to bits, leaving only the blood, guts and heart intact. None shall be safe from transfiguration.

Inna dis ya soul clash – the classic battle for soul domination – SKRS performs their own brand of dub exorcism on all dark hearts.  In their medicine bag they arm themselves with THE quintessential Scientist codex, a golden chalwah, a ten foot stalk of herb and some holy water.  May Jah have mercy on us all and rid our hearts of all evil curse dem!  Out now on Boomarm Nation

 “Court not the Romance of Darkness – for demons need love too –
Lest the consequences persist long after the bite is delivered
And a cataleptic slumber fall pon u!”
  – Baba Raas
When She and the night conspire to conceal the Light
And the moon consents to cast Her haunting allure
The depths arise and stake their claim; a gnawing hunger for infliction
A sinister joy in the air rattles shutters with accursed laughter
Suffocating plumes of panic and confusion dance in wild frenzy
“Murder soundbwaay!” never before sounding so fatal
