RELEASE DATE: 13TH MAY 2013
One of the UK’s freshest new drum & bass talents drops his debut solo single on Critical, this one is simple mammoth! Emperor has been making waves over the past couple of years moonlighting with various camps but it was the keen ear of label boss Kasra that cottoned on early drawing him deep into the Critical ranks. If this new single is anything to go by, one of the best decisions Critical could have made.
The cinematic intro of ‘Begin’ is beautiful blend of strings, reversed fx and the sultry vocals of Georgia Yates who featured on the Enei album last year. All build to a haunting dropout before the next stage, an absolute nasty tech-stepping future roll-out that’s been getting Fabric in sweat these last few months. Twisted, uplifting and wonderfully emotive, this is another slice of Critical magic.
Next up and we’re treated to the vintage double-bass grooves of ‘She Said’. Another huge epic intro featuring a soaring vocal drifting over ethereal pads features here as hi-end percussion leads into the fattest bassline for a properly funked up dance floor workout. Think Roni Size ‘Brown Paper Bag’ or Peshay’s ‘Miles From Home’ for 2013…bad to the bone!

APHAVIP003 / MACHINEDRUM - CLISSOLD VIP / 1ST APRIL 2013 / LTD 10” VINYL & DIGITAL
Jungle Juke? Astrophonica conclude their three-part, experimental VIP series by inviting Machinedrum to give his own take on the label’s search for a new sound.
Clissold VIP sees the now Berlin-based, globe-trotting producer add his unique touch to Fracture & Neptune’s original by taking the track into frenetic yet hazy vibes. As with the two previous VIPs, this release pushes at the seams of established genres to deliver a musical experience that’s truly boundary breaking.
Machinedrum’s own experiments with tempos and genres in recent years have put him at the forefront of a small group of producers who are pushing things forward, alongside the likes of Om Unit who featured on the second VIP.
As with the previous two releases, Machinedrum’s Clissold VIP will be available as a limited edition of 300 x 10” one-sided vinyl with 2 colour screen printed and hand numbered sleeves.
Clissold VIP was exclusively aired on Gilles Peterson’s BBC 6 Music show and has since had support from Om Unit, dBridge and Daedelus.
