Show quotes

From the dizzy heights of putting on early shows of ours, to the crushing lows of having to slave away at a label for a decade, you've fought the good fight so the rest of us don't have to. Dealing with Fellsilent alone should have been enough to qualify you for some kind of medal. Seriously though, man...good work. Congratulations on 10 years of Basick. Here's to 10 more. And 10 more after that. But then that's it. Don't be greedy.

Enter Shikari

12 years ago Mr. Nathan Barley Phillips turned up to one of our shows at Bedford Esquires and told me about his new record label. He really helped build and nurture the band and together we released the "Double A" EP and "The Hidden Words" full-length. Together we wrote our own little piece of music history and we are proud to have been part of the journey! Onwards and upwards, viva la Basick!


Firstly, I love your hair and I could never say it to your face. Secondly, congrats on having the coolest label and being great for 10 years.

Shaun Faulkner, X Ray Touring

Firstly, you look handsome as fuck for a 10 year old. What is your secret? Utmost respect for you. Not many people would do what you have. You are a true gentleman, a visionary, a leader amongst people who are only out there to stiff bands over. You have an amazing team with you. Much love man.

Leks Wood, Devil Sold His Soul

Dude! From all those years ago when Sam told me No Made Sense were signing to you, to your 10th guys have done so much awesome stuff! Thanks for everything bro ♥

Jozef Norocky, Devil Sold His Soul

We can't thank you enough for the chance you took on our little old band from Chicago! We owe you pizza!

Evan Dunn, Alaya

Dearest Barley, happy birthday! Thanks for everything, get a haircut ya hippie!

♥ David Robison, Alaya

I will always remember the first time I met you. I was very drunk and my English was terrible, but that's how we talked about a record deal. Thank you so much for not screwing me over.

Rémi Gallego, The Algorithm

It wasn't even Nescafe. This day is RUINED. Happy 10th birthday to Basick - probably THE most patient label around. But also the nicest and realest. Much love to all you guys! Just one request; bring back the fridge magnets!

Paul Ortiz, Chimp Spanner

Thank you so much for your help and support over the years. We definitely couldn't have done anything without it! Here's to another 10 years!

Kaan Tasan, No Consequence

Congratulations on making it to 10 years! A monumental achievement in this industry of ours. Thanks for believing in us all these years and letting us keep annoying you. Seriously though, Basick will always hold a special place in our hearts. Big love.

Harry Edwards, No Consequence

Cheers to 10 years of some of the most forward thinking and awesome people on the plane! I owe a huge part of who I am today to the love and support shown by you and everyone at the Basick team ♥

Keshav Dhar, Skyharbor

The boys in Ion D want to give you a shout out for your love and support when most people had their backs turned to us. We are also sending you love for getting us turned onto apple cider. That rocks almost as much as you do brotha. We're currently finishing up a few new songs and have a few shows planned before the end of the year. Afterwards we'll be reaching out to you. We hope to see you and the Basick fam sooner rather than later. Take care.

Ion Dissonance

My musical brother. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us as a band, for the belief and patience and guidance you have always provided. 10 years is a long time, but we hope we can see the next 10 years through with you. Stay awesome.

Paul Green, The Arusha Accord

I just want to say thanks so much for having faith in this band and believing in us. You're one of the most genuine guys I've ever met in this industry and that is a rarity. For that I would like to say thank you. All the best.

Wes, Napoleon

Just wanted to say thanks for giving us guys a big chance and opportunity. Here's to the next 10 successful years in the business.
