05.Apr.2011 William Breakspear: Two Oh Double One Mix

Empathy Recordings is pround to bring you the latest in our long line of guest mixes… Welcome William Breakspear and his Two Oh Double One mix featuring over an hour of bastard breaks and glitch hop

Raised by wolves in the depths of English woodland, Breakspear soon came to love the natural rhythms of the forest. Thrust into the city as a pup he foraged for beats in the urban sprawl, occasionally finding a kick or bass slide which reminded him of the forest. Now he has mastered his biomechanic arms and digital brain he can finally return to the trees with added vigour and become complete with the beat.

Comments Off on William Breakspear: Two Oh Double One Mix


New Zealand based drum and bass producer Eavesdrop is no stranger to our ears. He is building up a growing list of impressive releases including the recent “Matter of Time” single (EMPD019). Moving on from that successful outing, Empathy is proud to bring you “Air on Fire” a new 4 track EP featuring Benson and Willie C.

The title track “Air on Fire” brims with energy as Willie C leads a Shapeshifter-esque call to arms that is bound to get the floor moving. ‘Solitary Confinement’ with Benson and Willie C is a soulfully reflective chill-out perfect for after the party or one of those lazy autumn evenings heading our way. ‘Eastern Wind’ and ‘Secret Soul’ close out the release incorporating elements of Good Looking style jazz fusion with a calculated dance floor sensibility – equally at home in front of the crowd or on your stereo.

This release will be available Friday 25 March from: beatport.com, itunes, amazon mp3, addictech.com, junodownload.com, trackitdown.net and all good digital stores. Search Keyword: Empathy Digital.

Empathy Recordings with the support of Junodownload are proud to announce the forthcoming release of EMPD023: Operation Restore.

In light of the recent earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand, Empathy has teamed up exclusively with Junodownload to offer dance music lovers an effective way to contribute and support the recovery of Christchurch and its people.

We’ve decided the best way we can contribute is to support the Red Cross with our music so we’ve assembled a team of musicians who share our dream. Junodownload has stepped up to help Empathy with the release – meaning we will be donating 100% of the return for this release to the Red Cross Christchurch Earthquake Fund.

Many artists on this release have been personally affected by the earthquake and ALL have been struck by the magnitude of the disaster. Operation Restore will be featuring a host of New Zealand’s finest electronic  artists including: Cern, Nanotek, Minuit, Funk ‘n’ Slo Cuts, Timmy Schumacher, Kyla, Greg Churchill, Borderline, Ollie Bassweight, Johnny Hooves, Black Planet, and many more. We’ll also be seeing international support in the form of William Breakspear (UK) and Kid Digital (Russia).
