Shortly behind Twisted Mysteries 1.5 we saw Satori’s second EP “The Luminiferous Aether” which followed up title his first, wittlily title “A Sharp Kick To The Third Eye”. Both contained four tracks of blisteringly fast aussie darkpsy and psycore.

Pascal, the brains behind boom nasha brings his veteran experience to the project. Now as the artists begin to mount in support for a label recognized for 6 strong releases between 2010 and 2011.

Our first release was the 2010 Debut “Twisted Mysteries 1.0 “ which consisted of mostly Australian artists. 10 Tracks ranging from deep twighlight through full on and psycore. The album was an enigma which represented a stunning new direction for any current Australian psytrance label. Hard and fast acts like Dislex6, psyzanca and mind oscillation juxtapose the more full on character of the label where artists like Mnemonic, S.E.T.H, Atomgrinder and Boom Nasha all make nice waves in the 145 bpm range. FNT records isnt just a psytrannce outlet either. Spunje and Tron Sepia are both producing enlightening downtempo, ethno, chillstep which we hope feature as official releases soon.
Twisted Mysteries 1.0 was closely followed up by Atomgrinder’s full length album “The triumph of noise over music”. This was FNT’s first artist LP. The UK based “hard techpunk acid” sound is tuff, ballsy and worth hooking into. With tracks like Bus Wankers and Heroin for all, Atomgrinder and FNT were soon onto the very triumph that was otherwise known as music, dragging it kicking and screaming through Digital Audio Workstations on a global scale.
