Where did it all begin? Back in early 2001. Long live the revival of oldskool… Unfortunately it was ten years too early and went in completely the wrong direction and failed miserably to generate any homegrown interest.
Electric Tribe were behind Ectopic Beats, and there were two releases on this label, which sold mainly in Japan and Germany.
This got championed by Rob Da Bank on his Radio 1 leftfield show & subsequently almost got them signed to Virgin records and Carl Cox’s label. Despite this they still have a few hundred copies floating about of Ectopicbeats Vol2 – their favourite of the two releases with the offical acidic Electric Tribe remix of DJ Skywalkers legendary Killerwhale track. Ave it!
As for Ectopic Beats? It’s not dead…..Just having a rest.
