Celebrating a decade of Basick Records
We look at a history, of life, on the cutting edge of heavy music...
It’s been 10 years since Nathan Barley Phillips and his half-brother Jake Smith set up Basick Records, a label that would later become synonymous with the rise of the tech scene in the UK and beyond.
“It was a very organic thing to begin with,” Barley tells Hammer. “We ended up making tons of CDs by hand, handed them out at gigs and distributed things online via MySpace.”
Their journey hasn’t always been easy, though, with an especially steep learning curve at the beginning.
