Sinsect / Bio

Sinsect is a hard-hitting industrial strength fusion of power-noise, EBM and drum & bass.

Sinsect was spawned by James Ashley in 1997 as DJ Sinsect in the NYC industrial/noise club scene, with residencies at The Pyramid and Z-Bar, and also had guest appearances at Mother & the Bank. As a natural evolution, he started creating his own material, and worked with other noise artists in NYC, New Jersey, and Atlanta.

Drawing inspiration from a myriad of sources has kept the Sinsect sound in constant flux, with every release being a sonic adventure, from the rhythmic noise of [contained] (2003), the downtempo dark ambient soundscapes of Hidden Agenda (2004) to the harsh power noise beats of Darker Days Ahead (2009) and the birth of noisenbass with 2010's Shadow Wars.

Sinsect signed with Crunch Pod Records in 2011, and his label debut "Bug Life" continued to build on this solid foundation of genre-bending experimentation, with much more to come.

Now, Sinsect is with Noisenbassen Records, with a series of EPs coming out starting May 1, 2012, called Broken Heroes.
