17.Mar.2011 EMPD021: EAVESDROP – AIR ON FIRE
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.

10.Dec.2010 EMPD019: Eavesdrop: Matter of Time
Auckland, New Zealand based drum and bass DJ/Producer Eavesdrop is no stranger to Empathy Recordings having previously released music on the compilation “Is this Code” back in 2003 under the guise Grim Da Vide, and on 2010′s Rumble in the Jungle compilation as Fractured Noise.
Now under the pseudonym Eavesdrop, he brings You “Matter Of Time” a new 3 track single release featuring Auckland Based Hip hop and dance music Toaster and M.C “Imagine This”. The title track is packed with killer rhymes and deep pitching bass lines, it’s a subtle number that’s as deep as they come.
On remix duties we have French based producer Eddy Crusher aka White Papoo. Eddy is a well established breakbeat producer and long time Empathy ally. He sets the bar high with this frenetic tech dnb workout featuring his trademark electro synth stabs and frenzied bass… this track comes ready to destroy any dance floor.
Completing the release, Eavesdrop V.S Alias Glitch Remix is a drastic take on the Original mix. With Glitching Vocal effects and a smashing clap and wobble bass line this remix is going to tear up dances floors. Alias was once the Dj/Producer for The Fast Crew, now he’s teaming up with Eavesdrop to produce Glitch hop, watch out for future releases from these guys.
It’s just a matter of time before Eavesdrop blows the roof off… Look out for his forthcoming E.P on empathy next year.
This release will be available in all good stores in time for your new years party… 28 December 2010.
