uk producer andy meecham's latest project, the emperor machine is known for making spaced-out, psychedelic disco. sometimes when i'm listening to him, i space out and let my mind drift off into some 70's science fiction soundtrack. i love the variety of percussive instruments used to enrich each track. obviously this sound is a residual from his past incarnation in chicken lips but he also was involved in bizarre inc, best known by their rave anthem 'playing with knives'. quite a respectable track record, right?
'you clapper' is taken from the emperor machine's last double a-sided single 'black ken/you clapper', the follow-up single 'kananana' is out this week on london's dc recordings. the new album 'space beyond the egg' is coming on june 1st.
the emperor machine - you clapper
always on the cutting edge, our friends from dummy records also recognized the greatness and had the emperor machine remix their second single release: 'midnights' by lost valentinos. you know you're going on a trip when the track is over 13 minutes long. so buckle up, lay back, leave it all behind and let's go!
lost valentinos - midnights (the emperor machine remix)
buy the lost valentinos single from beatport or the dummy shop.
