KATHARSYS (Forbidden Society Recordings) began in 2001 when Hugo and Tom began producing their first drum & bass tracks, inspired by the dark grooves and demented beats of artists such as Tech Itch, Dylan, Kemal, Konflict, Photek and Ice Minus, to name just a few. After countless hours of waveshaping and savage beat processing, the duo were ready to start releasing in 2004. KATHARSYS, from the ancient greek word "catharsys", meaning the emotional cleansing of the audience in relation to drama, is an extreme change in emotion. The main focus of the duo is to create intense sounds that evoke this kind of extreme changes, producing electronic music from darkstep to neurofunk hard drum & bass.
