01.Feb.2011 EMPD020: William Breakspear – Skydive

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.

William has a reputation for creating the most primal sounding high tech music you will ever hear. Analogue samples, 8 bit fuzziness and old school booming basslines can all be heard in any one of William’s multi genre workouts.

Backing up William, Empathy has assembled a team of unrivalled breakbeat expertise…

K+Lab is no stranger to Empathy. In 2010 he gave us “The Whole World’s Ill” which featured on glitch and breakbeat charts across the world. His blend of dirty basslines, 80′s hip hop breaks and electro freshness is a perfect complement to the Breakspear sound. Their two collaborations on this release will undoubtedly find a welcome home in any good breakbeat collection.

Throughout the years Timmy has proven you don’t need to think inside one genre to keep people on the dance floor. Playing across the board with breaks, house, techno, garage, drum ‘n’ bass, electro, booty bass, hip hop and downbeat, Timmy has kept the dance floors heaving for 20 years. 20 years of undying service, smashing clubs, festivals and radio transmitters apart with his fearsome mixing skills and secret artillery of hot tunes. With releases on labels like Passenger,
Cut La Roc’s Rocstar Records and DJ Icey’s label Zone, Timmy has made his mark on breakbeat world wide. Moving into 2011, he explores the 4/4 bassline genre with some crisp biscuits due for release soon, including a remix of DJ Love due out on Ali B’s AIR imprint.

Greg Churchill completes the release with his Aural Trash remix – Putting together parties and radio shows since 1984. Known for his strong commitment to the electronic music scene and upcoming talent, Greg Churchill is undoubtedly a legend within the NZ dance world. He has a long list of production credits on labels such as Underwater Records, Gung Ho, Craft, Azul, Data and Cosmonote Blue. His collaboration with William Breakspear features his trademark electro clash sound with a razor like glitchy edge.

The Skydive EP is out on Feb 14 and comes complete with 6 tracks of glitch breakbeat derangement… you’d be a fool to miss out.

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.
